In a lovely unsung corner of northern Provence - walking distance from a quaint village - a super farmhouse and barn, with gardens and pool

An authentic French experience in a hushed swathe of vineyards and historic hilltop villages. Choose between the 1835 main farmhouse (pale rendered walls, pretty blue shutters, charming old stone stairs) or Oak Alley, the newly built barn conversion, with a superb opening-to-the-garden double room that is wheelchair-friendly. Or take both for a big family do. Friendly owners live part-time in a handsome building sandwiched between, and leave you a bottle of local red wine or champagne. Both farmhouse and barn have good-sized sitting rooms with comfy sofas and wood-burning stoves, kitchens with large dining tables and all the paraphernalia, and country style bedrooms with a fresh cool feel and original watercolours on the walls. You have your own pergola-shaded terrace and garden, and share the generous pool. In the old barn... an Eton Fives court! Rules are on the wall. You can amble to the village for shops, two bars and a restaurant, or visit one of the area’s markets. Wine tastings, walks, cycle routes, canoeing, golf – all will tempt you but it’s peaceful here and you may prefer to idle.

Local points of interest from Jennifer Green:

Local points of interest from
Jennifer Green:

  • Picturesque Provencal villages, historic Roman sites, and bustling street markets are all just a short drive from the house.
  • Sampling the delights of the local Cotes du Rhone vineyards can take you to all sorts of unexpected places, from the truly Dickensian cave to the ultra chic and sophisticated experience.
  • Cycling or driving through purple lavender fields at the end of June when the scent just fills the air is a joy for all the senses.
  • Mont Ventoux is a must if you are a cycling fanatic. You may want to try and beat the current guest record of cycling up and down 3 times in a day, but definitely only for the super fit. For the rest of us, there are plenty of other easier cycling routes.
  • Music events and wine festivals are everywhere during the height of the summer period.
  • Wandering down to the local bar & brasserie to mix with the locals after a peaceful day relaxing by the pool is a good way to end the day.
