Bedoin house description

Very special old house! Wonderful views! Infinity pool! Five bedrooms! and five bathrooms! This stunning large Mas is simply wonderful. Within walking distance of one of Provence's most popular villages, yet in a rural location it has outstanding views.

From its large landscaped garden the 180 degree views stretch over the vineyards and woodlands of the beautiful Vaucluse Plateau with the sun rising over Mt. Ventoux and setting over the Dentelles de Montmirail. A short drive away is the bustling town of Carpentras and the colourful city of Avignon.

The house faces south overlooking the large, paved ‘dining’ patio, upper garden and infinity swimming pool (14.5 x 5 metres).
With the exception of two bathrooms every room in the main house faces southwards towards the views and the ground floor bedroom, has direct access via French doors to the patio and pool area.

Flop House is well equipped and furnished in a contemporary, elegant style. It’s a light, spacious house of character in a beautiful setting and only a few minutes drive from the lively (at least in summer!) village of Bedouin with it’s cafes, market, shops, restaurants and summer concerts. One big attraction is that by walking down a quiet lane, directly from the house, it only takes 12 minutes to reach the centre of the village.

The surrounding area offers many natural and historical attractions There are fetes, festivals and markets in abundance; music and opera events; dazzling lavender and sunflower fields and vineyards synonymous with Provence; varied sporting activities such as canoeing, cycling, flying, golf, horse riding, quad biking, tennis, and walking The gastronomic restaurants and many excellent local wines complete the perfect holiday experience.

                  Owner info

                  Why the Owner Chose Bedoin:
                  We fell in love with Provence whilst on holiday, and spent a number of years looking for the perfect property, an old house, near a pretty village with stunning views and good walking, which was central to all the delights of Provence. As interior designers we wanted something that was untouched, which gave us a blank canvas to create the sort of stunning house we ourselves would require for the perfect French experience. As most of our holidaymakers return year after year we hope we have achieved this.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Fantastic views, wonderful old market villages, vineyards for wine tasting and numerous outdoor activities, plus it is a cycling mecca being on the route of the Tour de France. The world famous antique market at Isle sur La Sorgue is a short distance away, as are the Roman ruins, at Orange, Arle, and Aix en Provence. The Papal city of Avignon with its long summer arts festival, and the world famous opera season at Orange, is also close by. There is a different market everyday and the food of Provence is divine, as are the numerous restaurants.
