Location description from owner

The Provence region

The town of Malaucène is a small town but always lively, being the beginning of the northern ascent of Mont Ventoux. The Dentelles de Montmirail lie to the west. The heart of the Côte de Rhone wine region, there are scores of vineyards in the area, most of which welcome guests for free wine tasting. The historic city of Avignon, with Palais des Papes inside its ancient walls, is half and hour by car. The Lac de Paty is a few kilometers and one can swim in the the clear waters. The markets of Provence are famous for their variety of goods. Fruit and vegetables, superb choice of fish from Marseilles, cheeses, wonderful arrays of spices, arts and crafts, leather goods and clothing. In fact it is possible to buy almost anything in the markets! We are lucky to be between the three best Markets in the region, Bedoin (Mondays), Vaison la Romaine (Tuesdays) and Malaucène (Wednesdays). It goes without saying that the choice of restaurants is great and the locals are friendly and helpful. There is a strong musical tradition in the region and many concerts in the towns and villages which are held outside in the summer months. On June 21st, Midsummer Day, every town and village has its own music festival and no matter what your taste you will find something to please you.The climate is wonderful, (Provence has 300 days of sunshine a year on average) and from April until mid October one is usually wearing shorts! Winters can be cold but usually sunny and it is common to have a Christmas drink on the terrace.Come and try it out,

Malaucene

The house is set in the valley between Malaucène and Suzette. There are no other houses in the immediate vicinity and it is very quiet and peaceful. It is surrounded by fields of vines and olves and fruit trees.

“Perfect Provence”

Reviewed 27 Aug 2014

Farmhouse Provence: cool tiles under your feet, fruit trees in the garden, a recently completed swimming pool, and with all the comfort of a fully-equipped modern kitchen and two stylish bathrooms. As of June 2014 a little landscape gardening is yet to be completed around the pool, but this is a "certain win" for the 2014-2015 visitor, for the prices generously acknowledge the on-going improvements, and even during our visit, the new sun-loungers were arriving. At the same time you can pick your own cherries and Mirabelle plums from the huge garden, and if anyone was going to invade your privacy they would need a telescope! Provence being quite a long way, it's good to know that the owner, Annie, is English, and she lives on-site and is ready to receive calls about travel difficulties and delays and keys and so on. We asked about the usual damage deposit that owners normally require, but being on site Annie is happy to accept a handshake from most visitors, and this ends the need to carry wads of cash or cheque books. The gite is based on twin rooms, rather than doubles, for maximum flexibility. Annie also knows the locals... We pranged our rental vehicle and needed a new tail light. Annie sent us to the right local garage who acquired the required part within 48hrs and fitted it in 10 minutes, charging nothing for labour. Minimal interruption to our holiday. She also knows the local degustations…one of which is a family concern. Don’t miss. Vaison la Romaine, a few miles up the road, offers arguably the best Roman town ruins in Provence, perhaps in France, and the giant Pont du Gard aqueduct is an easy day-out excursion. Vaison also offers a market every Tuesday which is truly huge and truly mouth-watering. Le Mas de Maupas gite is about 1,000m west of Malaucene, a delightful village offering a variety of useful local stores, one or two discreet gift shops, a very good boulangerie, a well-stocked village supermarket, two or three promising bistros, and a modest street market every Wednesday, offering particularly good fresh fruit and veg. Le Mas de Maupas is, perhaps above all, a perfect base for cyclists. A training run through the Dentelles, "the Teeth", is an interesting warm-up. Then Mont Ventoux itself…which is visible from the front door of the gite. The top is 23km away by the direct Malaucene route, but the Tour de France route starts at Bedoin, about 20mins drive south. We drove our bikes the ten miles to Bedoin, where day-long parking is very easy and free, then we climbed the 4,400ft (21kms) Tour de France route up to the summit. That sort of climb was enough for us, but if you can manage the extra ten miles and 500ft involved in cycling from the Le Mas de Maupas to the Tour de France start point at Bedoin (and therefore you don't have a vehicle to take home later), you can coast the NW road down from the summit and virtually free-wheel back to the front door of your own gite. Back at base, after an exhausting day, there is the pool, walk-in showers, a barbecue, and quiet... It’s perfect Provence.

“Beautiful , great location, fantastic host, fabulous stay!!!”

Reviewed 6 Aug 2014

We were very pleased we booked this gite, it's set in a excellent location with lovely garden and newly built pool. It has everything a family could need, lots of space, large well equipped kitchen etc...and wifi!!! The owner Annie was very welcoming and helpful to us and we felt at home straight away. This gite is in an excellent location for exploring the area and many cycling routes. We were able to store our bikes safely and securely too at the gite. Only 5 mins, if that from shops, cafes and local Malacene market. Can't wait to return next year! Thanks again Annie and Of course not to forget Tommy! The Tilley family

Thank you for reviewing Le Mas de Maupas, it was a pleasure to have you. We begin planting in the Autumn so if you visit again it will hopefully be even better. Best regards Annie Templeton

“iconic view of Mt Ventoux”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2013

a marvellous situation at the base, and with iconic views, of Mt Ventoux; delightful local town, Rhone vineyards (Gigondas, Ch-neuf-du-Pape) on the doorstep, Roman remains; superb micro-environment within 10 miles/ privileged to stay before the official opening so property not fully completed (e.g. swimming pool yet to be built); therefore unable to opine on the final package but cannot recommend too highly, charming welcome (served fine breakfast in the owner's "kitchen"); GO GO GO
