The rooms of the cottage are small, but offer all comforts. CENTRAL HEATING, AIR CONDITIONING in every room including the kitchen. The only bedroom is located on the northern side of the house. The ITALIAN SHOWER was completely renovated in June 2016. Folding seat in the shower and raised WC. In the living room there is a new sofa bed for two people, very easy to manipulate. An 1800 m2 garden is without a fence, but a hedge around the garden offers privacy. An automatic sprinkler system keeps the garden green and cool. A large vine-arbour/Tonnelle runs the length of the house. There are meadows with trees all around the property.
The village of Malaucene is only 1.5 km from the house. The hedges of shrubs which surround the ground confer a natural intimacy. The hiking path GR91 passes the property and during the summer month it is possible to undertake night treks to the Mont Ventoux.
There is WIFI, television and satellite disc (to watch English language programs), DVD player and radio...
The area is perfect for hiking, bicycling and horse-back riding. (Malaucène has three bike rental shops.) One can walk in the water at the beautiful gorges of the Toulourenc river which are located only five kilometers from the cottage. There is a waterpark in Monteux. There is an escarpment for cliff climbing in Buis-les-Baronnies created in 2014. There is a bathing lake in Mormoiron (15 km).
The region is famous for its local provençal markets (Vaison-La-Romaine every Tuesday, Carpentras on Fridays and Malaucene every Wednesday).
On the other side of the "Dentelles de Montmirail" you can find the famous wines of the "Côtes-du-Rhône" in Gigondas, Vacqueyras, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Rasteau, etc. Also within easy reach, you can visit Avignon with its papal palace and summer theatre festival; Orange with its opera festival and Vaison-La-Romaine, both with roman ruins. The Luberon and the Camargue are also within easy reach.
Exit the autoroute A7 at Bollene and head toward Vaison la Romaine. Follow signs to Carpentras. Malaucène is 9 km from Vaison.
When you arrive in Malaucène, please telephone me and I will meet you in front of the church parking lot.
