Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Set in its own garden of 1300m sq, this pretty three bedroom villa is well equipped in terms of home comforts, has its own private, fenced pool and is located just a stroll away from the village.
This property has the advantage that the owners, a lovely local family, live nearby and so can both welcome you personally and look after you during your stay.
The key benefits of this property are the great location in the midst of the stunning countryside of Mont Ventoux, the accessibility of the local village, just 900 metres away, and the peaceful private location
Cyclists will love the location at the foot of the gruelling and infamous climb of Mont Ventoux but its equally well situated for tourism in general.
Mont Ventoux is also transformed into a small ski centre in the Winter months and the villa is a great base for a few days skiing.
All year round it's a good base for exploring the local region with both stunning countryside and historical towns and villages on the doorstep

The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
The local landscape is dominated by vineyards, country roads and quaint villages, all gently basking in the Provencal sunshine.
Overlooking this vista is the giant of Mont Ventoux. This is a 2000m summit that is famous for the challenge it poses to serious cyclists. If you are in the car, it also makes for a great day out with stunning views on a clear day! (Have a look at our Cycling in Provence pages here for more information about Mont Ventoux)
Villa St Paul is only 900m from the village of Bedoin where you will find plenty of small local shops and restaurants.
If you like to explore the local Provencal markets, you’ll be spoilt for choice! Bedoin Carpentras, Mazan and many other towns in the area are well known for the excellent Paysan Markets where you will find local produce, grown and sold by some real characters!
With good restaurants in abundance in this area, it’s not difficult to spoil yourself – holidays aren’t for dieting!
If you like a tipple, a well-trodden wine route starts at the door of your Villa. Vaqueras, Gigondas, Cotes du Ventoux and Cahteauneuf du Pape are all well known great wines of the region and are all within a thirty minute drive (Just make sure you have decided who’s driving back!)
If you are feeling a bit sporty, cycling, walking, rock climbing, horseriding, golf, quad biking, canoeing and even Paragliding can all be found within 20kms of the village.
Further a field but within easy reach, you have the attractions of some of the South of France’s best known towns: Avignon is just 30 minutes away and Aix en Provence, Orange, Marseille and the Carmargue National Park are all under an hours drive.
