Property description

Charming renovated farmhouse set right in a vineyard in Provence with views of the Dentelles of Montmirail. Completely modern kitchen. Master bedroom has cathedral ceiling, exposed beams, adjoining balcony terrace and bathroom, and king-size bed. Second bedroom is large with a double bed and a twin bed. Additional sleeping on foldout sofas and futon downstairs. 3 bathrooms. Dining room. Living room with exposed beams opens onto yard, view of roses and vines. Sun room with windows on two sides, fireplace. Large front yard. Beautiful and quiet.

Eat meals under the shade of old vines that grow up the side of the house, while watching the sunset reflected on the mountains and the vineyard. Or sit on an upstairs deck adjoining master bedroom with beautiful views.

Violes is a small charming wine village a mile from the house. It has everything you need if you just want to stay put--two small food stores (not chains), two bakeries, a renowned butcher, pharmacy, post office, ATM machine.

The house is within easy driving distance of Avignon, Orange, Vaison la Romaine, and Aix-en-Provence for city shopping and sightseeing. It is very convenient for visiting famed vineyards of Southern Rhone: 5 miles from Gigondas and Vacqueyras, a little more to Chateauneuf du Pape. Mt. Ventoux is nearby for hiking and cycling.

About the owner: I am a professor of literature and my spouse works in publishing. We are both wine geeks, inveterate readers of fiction, lovers of music and art.

We are always mesmerized by the beauty of the scenery, from our property's view of the vineyard and the mountains to the scents and sounds of rural Provence.
