Overview

Pool Ideal for Kids Walk to Village

Nestled near the heart of Montélimar in the Provençal Drôme, L’Estrade is the perfect family home for a week of adventures and relaxation.

Built in 2013 and recently refurbished, this villa is the epitome of modern. The interior social space consists of a large, open-plan living, dining and kitchen area. A delightful fusion of soft pinewood, white and grey creates a contemporary feel across the home, with a full array of modern facilities. With two comfortable sofas in front of the huge satellite TV, the living space is the perfect place to relax after a long day exploring the area.

There are six bedrooms including three twins designed with children in mind with everything from bunk beds, books and small desks and chairs so that kids of all ages can enjoy a family holiday together. 

The garden is a true delight for an active group, with a large lawn for enjoying any number of games extending alongside the private pool, which in turn is flanked by a row of sun loungers. So, whether you want to run or splash around, or simply soak up the sun and relax, it’s all up to you! Step out from the kitchen and dining room to the alfresco dining terrace or head to the sheltered poolside BBQ area you can spice up meal times whatever the weather.

You’re ideally placed to visit the fascinating and beautiful town of Montélimar, just a short drive from the villa, putting stunning cultural and historical sites at your fingertips. To explore a little further afield we recommend the impressive Renaissance castle at Grignan, and for guaranteed fun, check out the Crocodile Farm in Pierrelatte.

The region of Drôme itself is a delightful area, attracting far fewer tourists compared to neighbouring Provence but is arguably equally beautiful.

L’Estrade is ideally located for those who like to explore: just a short drive or 30-minute walk from the heart of the picturesque town of Montélimar (2.5km) which hosts the beautiful Jardin Public, a charming green space among the busy streets of the town that even has a small animal park. Wander the tree-lined boulevards, visit the Museum of Miniatures, with its fascinating collection of doll’s houses and pop in to the Palais des Bonbons et du Nougat too, if you’re feeling a little naughty – a fabulous trip back to childhood, even for the big kids!

The region of Drôme itself is a delightful area, attracting far fewer tourists compared to neighbouring Provence but is arguably equally beautiful.

The Rhone Alpes are a maze of orchards, olive groves, black truffles, and of course a range of incredible vineyards across the Côtes du Rhône wine region.

Wine-lovers should take a visit to the ‘cathedral cellars’ at Saint-Restitut (30km), an astonishing underground cathedral in a disused stone quarry famous for its ‘Cellier des Dauphins’ wines, where one can taste highly respected wines including: Red and White Réserve, Red Grand Millésime and Grande Cuvée Toque Noire Red.

Our most active guests will adore the range of activities on offer nearby. From water-sports to waterparks, hikes to bikes and rivers to rafts. With the vast Massif Central mountains and the dramatic canyons carved through them by the Ardèche River, hiking and rafting are particularly popular, and the near-deserted mountain roads are fantastic for some tough but ultimately rewarding and beautiful cycling.

To the north is the wonderful Valence (52km), a listed city famous for its art and history.
To the south is the impressive city of Avignon (82km), with a UNESCO World Heritage Site historic centre, each year it hosts the delightful Festival d'Avignon which attracts visitors from all over the world!

International airports can be found across the region, including in Nîmes, Avignon and Marseille, and of course the increasingly popular Eurostar now runs services to Lyon, Avignon and Marseille.
