Description from owner

Description

Situated in the South of France in the heart of Roman Provence, just at the foot of the picturesque castle of Beaucaire, is this unique and extraordinary property. This lovely newly renovated 17century stone house is perfect for a relaxed holiday vacation or as a quiet inspiring retreat for writers or scholars. It is also a convenient and less hectic base from which to attend the Festival of Avignon, the Photography Festival of Arles, or the Dance Festival of Montpellier. The highest house in town, it offers breathtaking views from its extensive terrace: the castle gardens, Beaucaire's historic center, the church of Notre Dame des Pommiers with its dome and bell tower, as well as an enchanting 18th century Chinoiserie lookout tower, piercing the sky from the garden of an 18th century mansion just below. The house is a wonderful place for a quiet relaxing escape, yet also provides a perfect base for exploring the treasures to be found in the wonderful region of Provence.

The house is a wonderful place for a quiet relaxing escape, yet also provides a perfect base for exploring the treasures to be found in the wonderful region of Provence.

The three-story house consists of the ground floor, with a living area, dining area, full modern kitchen ( with dishwasher) and full bath. The second floor, or 'Salon de Musique,' consists of two bedrooms,( one with a queen-sized bed and the second with two twin beds ) an open salon with desk and WiFi ,sitting areas with views of the garden,a CD player and selection of classical music, a second full bath, and a utility closet with washing machine.

The third floor is the terrace floor, and it also has a convenient summer kitchen with a day bed looking out onto the terrace. The hammock on the terrace is a wonderful way to relax after a summer meal accompanied by the local wines of Cote de Rhone. On Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, the fresh oyster vendor comes to Beaucaire and sets up along the Canal du Rhone a Sete, which runs through the city of Beaucaire and provides a lovely take away appetizer or meal to enjoy while taking in the stunning sunsets each night from the terrace. The neighbors' children call the terrace 'Paradis'.

Location description from owner

The Occitanie region


Nestled in the center of the Golden Triangle between Avignon, Arles, and Nimes, the historic town of Beaucaire on the banks of the Rhone River has many remarkable architectural gems dating from Roman times through the 19th century, with the Canal du Rhone a Sete going through the town with many small restaurants along the canal. One can visit the castle of Beaucaire and its garden, as well as the Auguste Jacquet Museum of the City of Beaucaire, just behind the house. The writer Henry James lovingly describes the castle and gardens as seen from above the house in his book, ' A Little Tour of France', and surely passed the house on his visit there. The Place Vieille, or Old Square, just 200 meters from the house provides a lovely spot for a coffe or snack or artisinal lunch or dinner prepared by Madame Cecile at L'Epicerie de Cecile. There is a flea market every Wednesday along the river at the Champs de Foire. In the summers, there are equestrian shows and fairs, outdoor films, and other events along the Champs de Foire.

The house is a convenient distance from which to attend the Festivals of Avignon, the Photography Festival of Arles, or the Festval of Dance in Montpellier

There are many remarkable sites to see very near Beaucaire, including the Pont du Gard, largest surviving Roman aquaduct, the troglodite Abbey of Saint Romain, cut from the rock, the charming nearby town of Collias for fine dining and an incredible gorge for a magnificent hike or inspiring walk along the river.

Just a walk across the Rhone is the city of Tarascon, made famous by Alphonse Daudet and his book Tartarin de Tarascon. There you will find the medieval castle of Tarascon. The MEO restaurant near the train station is and excellent place for fine dining, and worth it's price. One can also visit the museum and boutique of the famous textile printing company Souleiado in it's 18th century town house


Beaucaire

In the heart of Roman Provence, it is also in the heart of Cote du Rhone wine country and a forty minute drive to the famous wine region of Chateaneuf du Pape.
