Vacqueyras is on the "Route des Vins" and is a very well-known producer of excellent Rhone wines. It received its own official appelation in 1971.
Vacqueyras is no tourist town. Step out the front door to strolls through the vineyards. Walk through our terrace and you're in the town, just a couple minutes from a boulangerie, a small grocery store, green grocer, two cafes, post office, pharmacy and other services.
Our lovingly-restored house of approximately 2500 square feet dates back to at least 1793. It has exposed-beam ceilings, red tile floors, fireplace. More modern amenities include DSL WiFi, telephone, and handsome modern and antique furniture. There is a powered speaker system for your iPod iPhone or other MP3 device

Enjoyed our stay, would return

5 of us in Vacqueyras, a small village in Provence, staying at Chez Segal, priceless. This house was built in the 17th century yet has the modern conveniences to accommodate us all. The village is a one minute walk where you'll meet friendly locals who smile warmly, the local restaurants are great and the bakery was EXCELLENT! The Segal home is set up high overlooking Vacqueyras and the surrounding vineyards and hills. The excellent terrace area was used by us nightly as our wine sipping, relaxing escape. There's plenty of room in this house, but remember, it was built long ago, so if you're looking for something built in 2012, this isn't your house. We were pleased with the home overall and would return to it's charm and the local people. Bruno, the local caretaker, was friendly, english speaking and very helpful. Thanks again to Susie for arranging our odd dates for us and making our stay an easy transition. Cheers!!

Year Purchased: 1993
About the owner: Paul and Susie Segal reside in San Francisco. Paul is a graphic designer and Susie is a travel agent. They fell in love with Provence in 1993 while on sabbatical. They became intrigued with the notion of owning their own home there. They returned to Provence that winter and found a house dating from 1793 in the charming village of Vacqueyras. They have since transformed the house into a comfortable home. They cherish the time they are able to spend there, and take great pleasure sharing their home with friends and guests.
Why the Owner Chose Vacqueyras:
Provence offers the perfect combination of natural beauty to admire, history to learn, local culture to experience, food to savour, treasures to discover, and most of all, people to meet and enjoy.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The wine, the food at the local markets, the wine festival in July, being a part of a real village community, and did I mention the wine?
