Mme Tracy BURTON purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Mme Tracy BURTON chose Mollans-sur-Ouvèze
The villa offers a very special view of Le Mont Ventoux because it's situated at the top of the domaine at the end of a no-through road. This not only means a spectacular view but also a beautifully peaceful location to relax and unwind because hardly any cars pass by. The house is protected from 'Le Mistral' which means it's comfortable to sit on the terrace when other properties often suffer! Binoculars are available to use so you can sit on the terrace, relax and look closely at Le Mont Ventoux and surrounding countryside. It's truly beautiful.
What makes this Villa unique
The villa is situated in 'Le Toulourenc Valley' which is popular for it's beautiful winding roads for driving, riding or cycling. Veaux is just 2 miles down the road where tourists love to walk in the river to cool off in Summer, picnic and adore the nature. The valley is also superb for outdoor sports particularly climbing. Obviously there's many wonderful things here... wine tasting, antique theatres, museums, châteaux, golf, horse-riding, restaurants, cycle routes that 'Le Tour de France' & 'Paris Nice' have taken here, Provençale markets selling an abundance of fresh local foods etc... the list is endless! I will greet you upon arrival, give you a guided tour of the house and answer any questions you might have. I'll be available via email and/or mobile phone throughout your stay if you have any problems and will meet you upon departure for the key hand-over etc...
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Un endroit idéal pour des vacances sans souci, la maison est très bien agencée avec ses chambres indépendantes, et hyper bien équipée, nous n'avons manqué de rien! Tracy est très efficace pour s'assurer que tout reste bien entretenu (piscine, jardin,..) tout en étant discrète. Merci!
Seul petit bémol: la piscine est vraiment petite. Mais la trempette ça s'apprécie quand même sous le soleil de Provence!
Mont Ventoux is a mountain in the Provence region of southern France, located some 20 km northeast of Carpentras, Vaucluse.
On the north side, the mountain borders the Drôme département.
At 1,912m, it is the highest mountain in the region and has been nicknamed the "Beast of Provence", the "Giant of Provence", or "The Bald Mountain".
It has gained fame through its inclusion in the Tour de France cycling race; in 2009 it was the scene of the first penultimate-day mountain top finish in the Tour de France, with Alberto Contador sealing his yellow jersey.
As the name might suggest (ventoux means windy in French), it can get windy at the summit, especially with the mistral; wind speeds as high as 320 km/h (200 mph) have been recorded. The wind blows at 90+ km/h (56+ mph) 240 days a year.
The road over the mountain is often closed due to high winds, especially the "col des tempêtes" ("storm pass") just before the summit, which is known for its strong winds.
The real origins of the name are thought to trace back to the 1st or 2nd century AD, when it was named 'Vintur' after a Gaulish god of the summits, or 'Ven-Top', meaning "snowy peak" in the ancient Gallic language. In the 10th century, the names Mons Ventosus and Mons Ventorius appear.
Mont Ventoux, although geologically part of the Alps, is often considered to be separate from them, due to the lack of mountains of a similar height nearby.
It stands alone to the north of the Luberon range, separated by the Monts de Vaucluse, and just to the east of the Dentelles de Montmirail, its foothills.
The top of the mountain is bare limestone without vegetation or trees, which makes the mountain's barren peak appear from a distance to be snow-capped all year round (its snow cover actually lasts from December to April). Its isolated position overlooking the valley of the Rhône ensures that it dominates the entire region and can be seen from many miles away on a clear day.
