CHARMING 16TH C. TOWNHOUSE WITH STUNNING VIEWS

Venasque Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Our home is situated in a 16th century stone house at the center of Venasque (population 150), voted one of the most beautiful villages in France. On a quiet cul-de-sac, the house is private yet within walking distance of a boulangerie, a small grocery, and three fine restaurants. Our apt. has a rooftop terrace overlooking a valley of vineyards with spectacular views of Mount Ventoux. We have a second, adjoining apartment (sleeps 4) that can be linked and rented as a larger unit (sleeps 10) or shared by two families vacationing together. see our website www.chezkubik.com

Bouche Trou is a duplex that offers comfortable Provencal living year-round. Venasque, known for its cherry orchards, is a perched village surrounded by ancient, Saracen walls. Each morning, we go around the corner for our morning croissants and then follow one of 10 hiking trails from the village through glorious countryside.

The apartment has a big kitchen/dining area, spacious living room, three bedrooms (two Queen, two single beds) and two baths.

Guestbook comments from the owner
I wanted you to know how thoroughly we enjoyed Bouche Trou and our two weeks there in June. The house felt like a real home, to be lived in, and to return to and settle back in. I loved the kitchen. I happened to have been supplied with some lovely onions and garlic, as well as all the sugar, salt and flour one could ask for. That’s how I left it. It’s so nice to have a sense that the cooking goes on and on. The cookbooks are great too. Your pots are good; your stove works very nicely. These are excellent things when one is in the land of beautiful vegetables…and yes, it was cherry season. We ate them everyday. I loved the walk you can take from the village. We had drinks on the roof terrace every evening and felt we needed to pinch ourselves as Mt. Ventoux changed colors with the sunset. …The boulangerie is fantastic.

My husband, Padraic, an ardent cyclist first visited Venasque when he came to follow the Tour de France with his sons. Once we discovered this gem of a village, we came back often, finally buying our home in 1993. We love the around-the-corner boulangerie, the hiking trails, the markets, the morning light, and all things Provencal.

The most beautiful village in Provence. Private, quiet, an easy drive to the vineyards of the Rhone Valley, Avignon, and surrounding hilltowns. We love being in the village with access to a good croissant and three lovely restaurants.

Dinner on our rooftop terrace overlooking Mt. Ventoux. Heaven.

THE ORIGINAL GATED COMMUNITY

  • 5 of 5
What fun to stay in a walled village in the heart of Provence. This lovely multi storied rustic home was ours for a week in the spring. From the roof we could see the surrounding countryside and spent days hiking the well marked trails from village to village. The lavender and rosemary carpeted the trails. The perfect vacation for us( two outdoor loving fit folks) We loved the peace, beauty and the comfortable, cozy living quarters. Cooking in the traditional Provencal kitchen was wonderful especially after shopping at the amazing open air markets in the area. The roof top terrace was a great hide away for afternoon drinks..in April..when it was cool.... the living room was bright cheer and ultra comfy. (great book collection).
Do need to have a car.
Highly recommend. Will go back....need to explore more in the area.

SO FRENCH, SO GREAT!

  • 5 of 5
IT JUST DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS!!!!!! An absolutely charming, wonderful, comfortable house in the midst of an incredibly romantic, very French stone village. The owners, Pad and Julie, could not have been more accommodating or easy to deal with, the place is spectacular, the view from the roof a lifetime memory, and Provence....what more can we say!
