Malaucène Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

TOTAL RESTORATION - completed July 2015! 'La Petite Pause'. Beautiful views, peaceful, yet only 5min to Malaucene or Vaison. Villages, markets, cycling, trails, wine domaines.

Artisanal restoration of an authentic Provencal farmhouse, set in 2 acres, with private pool, pool house, and walled garden. There are beautiful views in all directions, across the surrounding vineyards and olive groves, towards Mt Ventoux and the Dentelle mountains. Now adapted to modern living, it makes a perfect, beautiful holiday base.

The house can comfortably accommodate 8 people in 4 double or twin bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms. South facing and sunny, with easy inside-outside access and ample shade during the heat of the day.

Languish by the pool, bbq, play 'boules' and savour the local flavours - fresh from a number of local markets. Superb cycling! Close to Mt Ventoux, the property adjoins one of the most scenic bike routes in Europe. Mountain bike routes and nature trails can be accessed directly from the house. Visit the nearby perched villages - Crestet, Sablet, Seguret, Gigondas, try wines at famous Cote du Rhone domaines, or explore the roman towns of Vaison and Malaucene with their colourful markets, restaurants, and medieval 'old' towns.

About Tony Esslinger

Veronica and Tony moved from England to Provence in 2005. This is the second farmhouse we have restored. It's also the second time we are managing our rental property. We have many very positive comments from previous guests who regularly came back to spend their holidays with us. Will gladly forward some of these if you would like.

Tony Esslinger purchased this farmhouse in 2013

Why Tony Esslinger chose Haut-Vaucluse

The exceptional position and charm of this property is immediately apparent. It offered us a wonderful opportunity to restore the old house, add a modern, integrated extension, and make a beautiful new home. Peace and quiet in a secluded valley, with lovely views all around, yet close to towns and facilities.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The views are exceptional in all directions. It is very well located between the two most vibrant towns in the area.

Beautiful place near Malaucene

  • 5 of 5

Lovely spot near Vaison and Malaucene, only a 45 minute drive from Avignon and a great base from which to explore Sorgues, Remy and other beautiful villages and towns. The villa is well equipped and the hosts have thought of everything that you need.

Perfect property in Provence!

  • 5 of 5

We spent an amazing 2 weeks at this property and I cannot recommend it enough.

The house was immaculate and has all the amenities you require! We were 2 families sharing the property and never felt on top of each other. The pool and garden were fabulous for the kids and we spent many a day relaxing and swimming. The property is extremely well appointed, whether you want to pop in to Malaucene in the morning to pick up pastries, visit one of the many markets in the surrounding villages or venture up Mont Ventoux.

We also enjoyed playing tennis in Malaucene and visiting the Gorges de Tourelanc- which was just perfect for a picnic (remember your river shoes!).

The hosts Tony and Veronica were amazing- very helpful and attentive, always on hand to give us tips on the area and ensure we had everything we needed. Thanks for a fabulous stay, we will definitely be back!

Uitstekend!!!

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place for a relaxing holiday. Everything you need is on hand. It is clean, superbly appointed and set in such a perfect area. Either lounge by the pool or explore the nearby countryside: Mont Ventoux, hill top villages, local markets, numerous wine growing areas. Tony, the owner, is excellent. He is always on hand to share information about the area and is keen to make sure your stay is comfortable and problem free. It has to be one of the best properties we have ever stayed in. Highly recommended. Hopefully we can return!

A beautiful property in a heavenly part of the world…..

  • 5 of 5

This very spacious house is immaculately presented and generously equipped - nothing is wanting. It is furnished with a carefully considered mix of old and new and has a lovely and relaxing atmosphere. It is well situated within vineyards a short drive from the main road so convenient but peaceful. Externally, there are great views from the gardens, lots of outdoor furniture, a good sized pool and table tennis. The owners are friendly and concerned that your stay is perfect but still maintain a discrete presence. There are great walks from the door and Mont Ventoux and the Dentelles de Monmirail are within a short driving distance. There are many perfect medieval villages to explore including the southern Rhone villages of Gigondas, Vacqueyras and Seguret for winelovers. We spent a most wonderful week here and would highly recommend this property.

Perfection in Provence!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this beautiful house. It was perfect for our group made up of keen walkers and cyclists including myself. The walkers explored the Dentelles and elsewhere. For cycling it is ideally situated near the foot of Mont Ventoux. Plenty to see in Vaison and other local villages and towns as well. We enjoyed relaxing by the pool after our exertions and made good use of the BBQ.

Would love to make a return visit!
