4 bedrooms


Sleeps 8


If you’ve ever tasted muscat wine from Beaumes de Venise – well, this 200-year-old house in the old village is just as sweet and relaxing. A wide marble staircase spirals up from the potter’s studio (now a small garage) to a magnificent living area: vast, light-filled, with wooden floors and beams and a scattering of hand-painted tiles. In one corner is a superbly equipped kitchen with a central island and stacks of colourful plates. In another, a large wooden dining table by the window. Out on the balcony, you can sit with a glass of muscat (what else?) watching villagers stroll down the lane. Wind up again to a constellation of light, spacious bedrooms, sensitively restored with seagrass rugs on wooden floors and new mattresses on wrought-iron beds. And the cherry on top? A rooftop terrace with a barbecue and summer kitchen, and umbrellas to keep off the midday sun. Join in with village life – market, restaurants, swimming pools and cycling store – and take time to explore the vineyards and olive groves of this beautiful corner of Provence. Avignon is 32 km, the Dentelles de Montmirail mountains at your door.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Elodie Chalmers

  • Beaumes de Venise is set at the foot of the southern slope of the Dentelles de Montmirail and faces the Giant of Provence, Mont Ventoux. The village is surrounded by vineyards and is famed for its wine. Market Day is every Tuesday.
  • The neighbouring villages of Vacqueyras and Gigondas are renowned for their robust red appellations and nearby towns and villages include Chateaunuef du Pape, Vaison la Romaine, Orange, Avignon and l'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue.
  • There are some great walks nearby and from the village. You can walk through the Dentelles starting from the walking track from Lafare; Or, a little closer, on the road to Vacqueyras, is the Notre Dame d'Aubune chapel.
  • You can also visit the prehistoric caves (or baumes) of Ambrosi and Rocalinaud, which gave the village its name. The village itself has five chapels (Notre Dame d'Aubune, St Roch, St Sebastian, St Anne and St Hilaire) dating back to 12th Century.
  • Our favourite cycle route is to head towards Suzett ; you can either keep following the signs for Mauclene, La Roque A'lric or Le Barroux. Hilly but fantastic views and few cars. For keen cyclists, of course, there is the Mont Ventoux only 20kms away.
  • During winter, Mont Ventoux is also open for ski season (perfect for beginner level and/or families).
