One of the largest markets in all of Provence takes place in the town each Tuesday.

Many of these have their own weekly market and many are synonymous with the production of fine southern Rhone wines for which the area is well know for. Rasteau, Beaumes-de-Venise, Vacqueyras, Gigondas and Chateauneuf-du-Pape are just a few of the many well known wines produced in the region.
The gite which is all on one level has it's own private and shaded outside terrace and you also have private use of the swimming pool (11M x 5M) which is set in approximately 1/2 acre of grounds.

About William and Bernadette Lorimer
We are a recently retired professional couple who are fortunate enough to share our time between living in Ireland and Provence. Our passions include good food and wine, attending live music events and travelling.
William and Bernadette Lorimer purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why William and Bernadette Lorimer chose Mollans-sur-Ouvèze
This property was purchased approximately 10 years ago and only after a 2 year search. The original house and gite although in a magnificent location had to have much love and attention devoted to it in order to bring it up to a comfortable standard. The proximity to a working village was important and the Mediterranean weather in this region is fantastic. We know we are privileged to have such a property in this region which makes us and anyone who visits long to return.

A fantastic family holiday in Entrachaux
Our stay was a perfect holiday for us. The accommodation was fantastic, clean, homely and more than enough space for our family of three. The surrounding land, space and use of the amazing pool made our 10 day stay one of the best yet in this beautiful part of France. Highly recommend it!
Thank you Katie for the positive review of your holiday. It was our pleasure to meet you and your family and we are very glad that you all had such a nice time during your stay here.

Très bel endroit, maison agréable, indépendante et très bien équipée.
Nous avons été très bien reçus par Bernie et William, et la propriété est très agréable.
Le lieu est tout à fait conforme à l'annonce, très belle piscine et lieu au calme mais pas trop loin du village.
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour, merci à nos hôtes!
Merci Caroline pour vos gentils mots. Nous sommes ravis que vous ayez passé un bon moment ici. C'était un plaisir de vous accueillir et votre famille dans notre gîte.
