The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region

Some of the best preserved Roman ruins of Europe are within an hour's drive: Vaison-la-Romaine, Nîmes, Arles, Pont du Gard, Saint-Rémy, Orange. In Avignon, its Papal Palace recounts the tale of the Avignon Papacy, the Western Schism and the Hundred Year War. For those who love theatre, the Festival d'Avignon (July) is to plays (in French) what Bayreuth is to Wagner's operas. Les Baux-de-Provence, an hour away, is one of the most spectacular Medieval settings. Orange (30 minutes away - July) welcomes in its Roman amphitheatre some of the greatest names in classical music. Aix-en-Provence (with its opera festival) is not much farther. There is a plethora of less famous festivals in the area in the summer. Prestigious French wineries are within a 30 minute drive (Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas, Tavel, etc.). The Mont Ventoux towers over the whole region - Lafare is great place to start the most famous climb of the Tour de France. The Dentelles de Montmirail, where Lafare sits, are famous to rock climbers for its breathtaking cliffs. Carpentras (15 minutes away) was part of the Avignon Papal holdings and a refuge for the Jews of the Middle Ages from persecution - the synagogue is France's oldest. It is an easy day trip to rent a boat near Marseilles and visit the calanques towards Cassis.

Beaumes de Venise

Lafare is nestled in a valley in the Dentelles de Montmirail, where one can hike to see eagles, vultures, wild boars, etc. It is a very small village (20 or so houses) and not that many more inhabitants. In winter, the ski resort of the Mont Ventoux is only a 30 minute drive away. This is the border between one of the best wine making regions of France and the beginning of the Alps, the right mix of history, culture, quiet and wilderness. Good restaurants abound in the nearby villages. The red wines of Beaumes-de-Venise (also famous for its muscat) are grown in Lafare. Lafare is an excellent starting point for scenic hikes in the Dentelles towards Gigondas or le Baroux (a Medieval castle to visit). Beaumes de Venise (3km) has all the shops for everyday needs and, as in all the villages of the regions, plenty of wineries to visit. Each day of the week, there is a "marché" in the nearby villages where local producers sell the freshest vegetables, local cheese, and other artefacts.

"A magical place to stay"

If you are looking for a place to relax in the most beautiful scenery, this is the place to be. Relaxing on the terrace overlooking the village or at the pool overlooking the "Dentelles de Montmirail" in perfect privacy, this house has it all.
The owner was very friendly and the booking process was easy. We stayed for two weeks with two families of four. Each family had their own floor with bathroom.
If you like cycling, bring your bike because it doesn't get any better. You can go cycling in the Dentelles with spectacular views or take it up a notch and go up the Ventoux (beware of the Mistral in July!). Great stay, hopefully we can return soon.
