The Cottage of “La Forge,” 185 m2, is located at the Gates of Provence, in the Drôme Valley, at the Domaine de Vincenti, our family estate for over four centuries. We installed it in an old stone building. It is fully equipped and it offers an exceptional comfort. It is elegantly and very tastefully decorated with plenty of space, light and charm. The domain has a park more than 6 acres, with a tennis court, a swimming pool and a children's playground. For short stays of 3 to 5 nights, contact us at “le Domaine de Vincenti”: our daily prices drop considerably after 2 nights. We will be delighted to warmly welcome you together with your family, your children and friends for a wonderful vacation in France. Brigitte and Bernard de Valence
