The house is situated on a big, private and calm property without any neighbours and a spectacular view on Mont Ventoux over fields, forest tree-lined rivers and fruit trees, and yet it is not far from Avignon TGV (45') and Marseilles Airport (1h20'). The village with all amenities is not even 2 miles away and offers the greatest number of Cafés and restaurants.

The region is known for its magnificent wines and, beyond doubt, famous for cycling and hiking,

The big pool, hidden in landscaped extensive gardens, offers the same splendid views, even while swimming.

The vacation home is furnished with nice antiques, very comfortable and gives you the feeling, as if you stepped into your own country home.

A patio with fountain and potted plants invites you to long evenings dining and chatting. You will never run out of famous places to visit, all nearby: Orange, Avignon, Arles, Aix en Provence etc., or the nearby Vaison la Romaine.

The linen for beds, baths, kitchen and table are included. Beds are changed once a week. You help yourself to fresh towels and give the used ones to the owner who takes care of the linen.

The Provence region

The property is set in the Roman part and the papal part of Provence, when the Popes ruled in Avignon. Vaison la Romaine is 10' away and offers extensive Roman excavations, a Roman Theatre, Museum and a famous Roman bridge which withstood the disastrous flooding of 1992!

From here you bike up Mont Ventoux, passing the Grozeau, a source already used by the Romans to feed Vaison la Romaine with drinking water, and still used today for the village of Malaucène. From Mont Ventoux you pass down to Sault with its extensive lavender fields and gorgeous views on the mountains of the nearby Drôme and over the Rhône valley.

All major sites of Provence are in easy reach for daily excursions.


Malaucène is a village of about 2500 inhabitants with a medieval part and a famous historic monument, the Romanesque church.To flee the heat of summer, the popes in Avignon had a now destroyed summer seat at the source Le Grozeau, just before one gets up Mont Ventoux.

All towns and villages in Provence have colourful weekly markets where you find everything. So has Malaucène. Nearby Vaison la Romaine and Carpentras provide even bigger markets.

The Roman amphitheatre in Orange is the setting for a world famous opera Festival in July and August,; the Roman smaller amphitheatre in Vaison la Romaine invites you in July to spectacular dance performances; Aix en Provence with its new opera house offers a great variety of stagings all summer. In the vineyards, in chapels or on squares, music and theatre are performed.
