Exclusive Recommended Pool Ideal for Kids Walk to Village

Welcome to charme en Provence, where privacy and tranquillity are combined with incredible convenience. At this beautiful 5600-square-metre (1.4 acre) private estate on the banks of the river l'Ouvèze, you’re just a few minutes’ walk away from the centre of the enchanting Provençal village of Vaison la Romaine.

This family home comprises a main house and an annex  just a few steps from one another, and set back 50 meters from the small road beside the river. The main house, a 200-sqm traditional Provençal stone mas, comfortably sleeps up to 8 guests, and the smaller 100-sqm annex house comfortably sleeps a further 4 people in two bedrooms.

Both houses have their own patio areas, with splendid views of the chateau across the river to the west and towards Mont Ventoux to the east. The private pool terrace is a beautiful paved area with sun loungers, surrounded by fragrant lavender bushes and pink oleanders, and overlooked by an atmospheric outdoor dining and activity area. Here, you can play petanque or ping pong, dine al fresco, or just relax in the hammock or on one of the loungers. From these garden areas guests can take in unobstructed views of the hilltop medieval castle that sits high atop the opposite bank of the river l'Ouvèze.

Just a few hundred metres down the river lies the historic Roman bridge, and at a similar distance you’ll also find the ancient hilltop medieval city, along with two major Roman antiquities sites right in the centre of town. Also in the centre of Vaison la Romaine you’ll find the pedestrian shopping streets and the main square, with a great selection of shops, cafes and restaurants, where you can relax and take in the atmosphere of Provence.

Vaison la Romaine is steeped in history, surrounded by vineyards and teeming with hiking and biking routes in the area. The Mont Ventoux, made famous by the Tour de France, is visible from the property and is only 10km away, providing challenging cycling routes and breath-taking views from the Mediterranean to the Alps. Find out why renowned travel journalist, Alastair Campbell, loves this region so much and has been holidaying here for the past 30 years, over on Telegraph Travel.

The pedestrian shopping streets, with the Marché Provençal on Tuesdays, are only a 3-minute walk away, as are a multitude of charming cafes and restaurants. In the Cité Mediéval, just across the Roman Bridge (the same 3-minute walk away), you’ll find historic houses, a church, and castle ruins at the top of the village, which also boasts many delightful art galleries, shops and restaurants.

Vaison’s rich past will enchant those who love historical places, as masterly showcased in the open-air antiquity sites in the town centre. If it’s entertainment you want, then take in a concert or dance performance at the Théatre Antique (outdoor Roman Theatre). And, for shopping and dining, Vaison boasts all modern amenities, including cafes, restaurants, shops, bakeries, supermarkets and just about anything else you could possibly need during your stay.

The region is a wine aficionado’s paradise, with delectable local Cote du Rhone varietals from Vaison and the charming surrounding villages, such as Chateauneuf-du-Pape and Gigondas, along with Sablon, Roaix, Cairanne, Rasteau, Baume de Venise and Vacqueyras. All of these villages of the same name as their wines are close by and well worth visiting for a tasting!

Other activities in the area include an adventure park, Oxygene, just down the road (750m), hiking and biking routes in the surrounding hills (500m), horses (3km), rock climbing (14km), water parks (15km-17km), a river walk (Promenade dans le Toulourenc, 13km), canoeing under the Pont du Gard (1 hour away), a cultural visit to the Papal Palace in Avignon (45 minutes away) and Mediterranean beaches near Marseilles and the Camargues (1-1/4 hours away). The Seve Ballesteros-designed Pont Royal Golf course is an hour's drive away, as is Provence Country Club, while there is a 9-hole course in Orange, 30-minutes away.

Vaison is easily accessible from the main N-S A7 Autoroute du Soleil, just a 30-minute drive east. It’s 45 minutes from Avignon and the nearest TGV station, an hour from the airport at Nimes, and 1-1/4 hours to the Marseilles airport.

Reviews

  • We hope some day to return.

    Posted by Keith on 24/10/2018

    We just spent a glorious month in your home in Vaison-la-Romaine. We want to thank you for making it available to us through Olivers Travels. It's a wonderful home in a wonderful setting. We had not previously been to Provence so we were able to take advantage of Vaison's central location to explore much of the area.

  • Wonderful property and location!

    Posted by Ian on 15/09/2018

    We had a wonderful time in your house. Thank you for everything! It was just perfect in every way - the way it was equipped, the layout, the pool and of course the location. I fell in love with the town and enjoyed wandering through the medieval street at different times of the day to see its beauty in different lights.

  • Very Nice Property!

    Posted by Robin on 21/07/2018

    Excellent location and good accommodation!

  • Spectacular

    Posted by Charie on 24/11/2017

    Thank you for letting us stay in this beautiful and comfy home with an amazing pool and great view of the town and spectacular castle. We also enjoyed the ping pong and pool tables a lot. This house was above and beyond our expectations.

  • Love at First...

    Posted by Kate on 09/09/2017

    I fell in love with France’s beauty the moment I got here.

  • A complete trip

    Posted by Elizabeth on 02/08/2017

    I love the plants and the fruits. Have you tried figs on cheese? It was heaven and the pool felt so good.

  • Simply perfect

    Posted by Charlie on 09/07/2017

    The simple, elegant décor, the spaciousness, the convenient kitchen, and the delicious coolness of the pool after hot sightseeing, were all wonderful things about the place.

  • The summit of enjoyment

    Posted by Anna on 28/06/2017

    It is incredibly beautiful here. I love the house and the town too. I loved the market and the music festival. I also loved all the daytrips you can take to places like the Pont du Gard, Avignon and Seguret.

  • A fabulous time

    Created on 22/12/2016
