The Provence region

The house is located in the Vaucluse, a Côte-du-Rhône wine producing region rich in history and with plenty of sunshine.

The cultural wealth of the region is legendary. Within walking distance you will find the picturesque villages of Gigondas, Sablet and Séguret, where shops, fine restaurants and small bars and cafés await visitors.

Mont Ventoux, the famous landmark of the Tour de France, is nearby and offers splendid views over the region and beyond.

The papal city of Avignon is a short drive away, and the Roman towns of Nîmes, Arles and Aix - well known for their festivals and museums - are all within comfortable driving distance.

Within a twenty kilometre radius are the Roman towns of Vaison-La-Romaine, Carpentras, and Orange with their historical sites, Every day there is an excellent market to visit and the lovely town of L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgues is a haven of antique dealers and brocante shops.

Further afield are the cities of Marseille and Montpellier, the beaches of the Mediterranean sea, the National Parks of the Camargue and the Vercors, and the Canyons of the Ardèche and the Verdon rivers.

For those who like winter sports, the greatest alpine resorts of France are within a three-hour drive. Roman ruins, and ancient theatres where events are staged throughout the summer months.


Le Four à Chaux is quiet and situated amidst vineyards, but it is not isolated. It is a ten-minute stroll to Sablet and less by car to the nearby medieval villages of Séguret, Gigondas, Vacquéras and Rasteau, all famous for their Côte-du-Rhône wines.

In the village of Sablet you will find all the shops for any everyday needs, including a post office, a pharmacy, and a medical centre.

There is a good family-owned restaurant with a patio and a typical French café in the centre of the village. There is second more upmarket stylish restaurant within a ten minute walk of the the village centre.

There are tennis courts open to the public within a kilometre of the village, and golf courses in Orange and Avignon. The location of the house is unique: it is set at the foot of the cliffs of the Dentelles de Montmirail (famous among rock climbers) with several beautiful marked hiking and cycling trails starting a few hundred meters away.

Wine lovers will find Domaines and caves à vins in abundance where one can taste and buy excellent wines direct from the winemakers. Food lovers can visit the ferme-auberges (country inns) to enjoy traditional Provençal cooking.
