The Domaine des Charmettes is set a Provencal landscape of rock-walled flower gardens filled with Mediterranean plants, roses, lavender, basil, and rosemary framed by olive trees, old parasol pine and cypress trees.

An elegant 19th century vineyard made up of 3 houses and numerous outbuildings surrounded by 1 hectare of vines and 1 hectare of gardens and woods. We make and bottle our own red and rosé wine. Situated in a quiet area at the edge of the village of Laudun, the Domaine is a wonderful vacation spot, a quiet haven of tranquility on the Western edge of Provence.

Laudun is just south of Bagnols sur ceze in the northern part of the Languedoc Roussillon region. The village is well known for gallo-roman ruins and famous for its “Côtes du Rhône Village wines.

In the “pool area”, there is a very large enclosed swimming pool with sun beds and garden furniture The covered sitting area is a perfect place to sit back with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and just relax.

Ideal place for couples and families who want to enjoy the 'sunny life' of Provence and Southern France. The 'Domaine' is extremely well situated for day trips in and around the region. Laudun is centrally located for trips to Chateauneauf du Pape, Avignon, Pont du Gard, Nimes, Uzès, the Ceze Valley, and the 'Gorges de l'Ardeche'. The Mediterranean and its wonderful beaches are just over an hour's drive.

Our hosts were welcoming and considerate, their recommendations were helpful and essential when trying to avoid oversubscribed tourist destinations without missing out on experiencing the best the region has to offer. We really enjoyed their house wines, amazing to stay on a small vineyard and learn all about the wine making of the region.

The photos and description truly represent the beauty and ambience of the landscape, terraces, buildings and interiors of this very special place. We stayed a month and were "at home" from the first day with the comforts available and the resources that Laura and Thierry generously shared: a well-supplied kitchen, a notebook of maps and restaurants, good info on about any thing French, bicycles, goats and chickens to feed, scads of books, and where to go for good wine! We going back next year, same time, same place. This is a good center from which to roam all over the Gard,

Great facilities and the location was great for day trips to Pont du Gard, Uzes market day, Nimes and Avignon.

                                                                        Wake up each morning to a stunning view over the vinyard and we had the special treat of watching Thierry in action labelling and packing his own wine production - which tasted great!

                                                                        Easy to find, close to small towns and major toll roads, a really top location.

                                                                        Fantastic holiday destination and great hosts. Thanks Laura and Thierry, hope to meet you again someday.
