Gite | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
Located between the famous city of Avignon to the West, and Mont. Ventoux to the East, Gite St Olive offers you a quiet and tranquil spot amongst the apple trees, cherry trees and vines that dominate this agricultural landscape.
It's one of 2 gites, built adjacent to the owners traditional farmhouse and the whole property has a hectare of garden and a beautiful enclosed swimming pool.
The owners have put a lot of thought and care into the design and furnishings and the result is an extremely comfortable and tastefully decorated ground floor gite. There are 2 bedrooms (a double and a twin) an open plan living dining area and a corner kitchen. The owners have used traditional warm Provencal colours and fabrics alongside a modern kitchen and a spotless bathroom.
Outside each Gite has a shaded terrace with dining furniture and a BBQ. You're encouraged to make yourself at home and use the pool, garden, children's play area, table tennis and 'boules'.
If all that sounds like too much activity for you, simply relax in the shade and admire the stunning views of Mont. Ventoux - you'll very quickly slip into the slower pace of life 'en Provence'.

About this location
The Provence region
This location is really easy to find and despite it’s rural feel, is actually only a few KM from the Autoroute. Avignon is only a 15 minute drive away and you’re also close to the large towns of Carpentras and Orange.
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)
If you like to wander around the local Provencal markets, you’ll be spoilt for choice! Bedoin Carpentras, Vaison, 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 Gites 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.
Further a field but within easy reach, you have the attractions of some of the South of France’s best known towns: L’Isle sur la Sorgue, Aix en Provence, Marseille and the Carmargue National Park are all under an hours drive.

"Our stay at St Olive was excellent, though the weather wasn't so good!"
We got a great welcome from the owners of the gite! A tour of the house and everything we could find there; in the refrigerator we found drinks and marmelade( homemade) to start with and a self baked … More
