A carefully restored mazet (traditional farmhouse) down a private track outside the small village of Blauvac. The interior mixes the traditional with contemporary furnishings. The living room has a sofa and 2 armchairs with an open fireplace & the spacious dining room (with wood-burner for winter days) offers flexible accommodation. The kitchen is well equipped with washing machine, dishwasher, oven and 2 fridges. A shower and WC lead off kitchen.
There are 4 double bedrooms, two with single beds and two with doubles. Each room has lovely views and they are comfortably but simply furnished. The master bedroom on the first floor has an en suite bath and WC. There is a further shower, WC and two bedrooms on the second floor.
Outside there are terraced areas for al fresco eating, as well as a barbecue, dining table and chairs and parasols. The fabulous pool (11 x 5m) which is oxygen cleansed has deck chairs & sun loungers from which to enjoy the panoramic views. There is a shaded area under the cypress trees for parking.
Was lucky enough to stay for 5 lovely days in April. Just in time to catch the start of the asparagus season, fresh lamb and more. It's a foodie destination for those cooks and wine lovers out there. The kitchen even has an oyster knife!
Set among vineyards and olive groves outside the village of Blauvac (now with its own bar and restaurant) with spectacular views of Mt Ventoux and hills of Monts de Vaucluse, the house is an hour's drive from the vibrant port of Marseilles. It is within easy reach of historic Avignon (with its famous bridge and papal palace), Roman cities of Nimes and Orange (with amphitheatres), towns like Arles and Aix-en-Provence that inspired Van Gogh and Cezanne. There are local markets on nearly every day in nearby villages with sleepy bars and excellent restaurants. Close-by are the vineyards of Dentelles, famed for its Gigondas and Chateauneuf de Pape wines, and the walking, swimming and cycling of the Pays de Ventoux. For info on bke hire, wine tours and walks - including a nocturnal ascent of Ventoux to see the sunrise over Mont Blanc - visit a tourist office.
