The immediate area and extended region exude a delightful ambience and the property is located just a 12 minute stroll away from the village and amenities of Entrechaux (Pop. 900) which boasts 2 bars, 2 excellent restaurants a post office, newsagent, Boulangerie and an excellent mini market with small Deli and a fresh meat section. A small local market also takes place in the village every Thursday. Entrechaux also has 4 working vineyards in close proximity to the village all of which offer free tasting facilities. For more comprehensive shopping, a 10 minute car ride will take you into historic Vaison La Romaine (Pop. 6000) with it's famous Roman ruins and where you will find a number of larger supermarkets, many fine restaurants and a good variety of shopping. One of the largest markets in all of Provence takes place in the town each Tuesday.

Further afield but within easy reach you will find many small beautiful villages to explore. 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. The pool is occasionally used by the considerate owners who live in the neighbouring property, but only in your absence.

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.
