Vaison-la-Romaine townhome description

Charming XVtIh century renovated three-storey stone town-house located on the old market square by its trickling fountain at the entrance of the what was once the Jewish quarter of Vaison-la-Romaine. Perched on the upper, medieval part of this Provençal town with a rich heritage and a prestigious past, it is just a walk away from the lower part and lively center of Vaison-la-Romaine.

The house, tastefully decorated in a style combining Provençal furniture with Mediterranean touches, is as welcoming in the summer as in the winter.

On the ground floor, a spacious living-room with a convertible sofa, a fire-place, Satellite TV, Hi-Fi CD player and radio, and Wifi connection, leads into a dining-room seating 6 to 8 people. Adjoining, are a half bathroom, and a separate, fully-equipped kitchen (including a dish-washer and a microwave oven) opening onto a quaint small balcony overlooking an enchanting courtyard awash with flowers and greenery.

On the second floor, two bedrooms: one with a queen size, 160cm, double bed and its bathroom en suite with a shower and toilet; the other room with two twin beds (joinable into a single king size wide bed) and a full bathroom en suite equipped with a washing machine.

On the top floor, renovatied in 2014, an attic sunroom with a futon and ensuite bathroom with shower, opens onto a terrace with a view on the upper part of the Medieval city and the Castle ruins.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About the owner: I live in Paris where I work. I discovered the Vaucluse over 30 years ago and was dreaming of having a house in the south. I finally purchased this cottage three years ago and have been spending weekends there and summer holidays. People are friendly and welcoming and the region has a wealth of interesting activities to offer both physical and cultural.

                      Why the Owner Chose Vaison-la-Romaine:
                      Vaison la Romaine is set in a beautiful countryside. Both the town and the surrounding area offer a rich variety of landscapes, colours and Mediterranean aromas and a typically provençal mellow lifestyle. It is close enough to Avignon to be accessible for extended weekends and far enough from the noisy crowds. It offers plenty of leisure and is a restful place to retire from bustling city life.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                      The stone cottage is in the Medieval part of the city on the hilltop, by a trickling fountain on the old market square. The property dates back to the XVth century, and was renovated by an architect in the 1990's. It is full of charm with different levels and ambiance's in each room, from the cellar to the attic and terrace overlooking the castle ruins and the old town rooftops. It is conveniently located, at walking distance from the center of the town, lively during the day and very quiet and peaceful at night.
