At the foot of the Dentelles in the heart of the Gigondas A.O.C, in an exceptional walled vineyard, discover the Clos Derrière Vieille. Beyond hospices and ramparts of the village of the thirteenth century, the metairie of the eighteenth century shaded by two old bot limes is surrounded by 3 hectares of vineyards and woods. The villa overlooks the Rhone Valley, the view is breathtaking ... Welcome to Provence !

This is an outstanding place to stay. The pictures in the listing of the house, the pool, the location on the hillside, the view over the vineyard and town , if anything, don't do the place justice. It is wonderful. The house is very comfortable, in excellent condition and fully equipped. Note that although there is a bathroom for each bedroom there is only one toilet on each floor so some sharing required. The views from everywhere on the property are hard to beat. You can walk down the hill into Gigondas in less than 5 minutes. The owner was very pleasant but his English is limited, as is our French, but he has a helpful book of instructions in English setting out how things work in the house. Wifi was very good.
Beautiful property, spectacular view. Highly recommend!
Everything was great about our stay - the location, the villa, the grounds, pool, and the view. The house is open and spacious, great cooking kitchen, lovely patio and pool.
Would definitely return!
PERFECT IN ALL WAYS
Having stayed in this spectacular area (Sablet, Gigondas,Seguret)several times in the past we found this lovely villa to be best there is. It was not only situated in a quiet peaceful setting high in the hills of Gigondas but it offered spectacular views of the medevil town, the surrounding vineyards and amazing sunsets. This home is in beautiful condition, well maintained and and well appointed. The landscaping and pool are also so well maintained. It was so easy for our group of 3 couples to settle in and feel right at home. There is plenty of space to provide both comfortable group and private time.
Whether dining in the enclosed area by the pool, on the house patio or in the villa's dining room it was always perfect for enjoying a leisurely meal prepared in a fully equipped kitchen with the freshest of local food and wines. You don't need to venture far from "home" to thoroughly enjoy this hidden gem of an area. Our 2 week stay was perfect! And ended too soon!!
Superb property Memorable Stay
Close Derriere Vielle is an exquisite home and property. The owner, Yves Gras has created a beautiful and distinctive home, using the most beautiful materials and decorated it with flair, originality and flawless taste. The setting is breathtaking, at the highest point of the village of Gigondas, with views across the Rhone plane and the vineyards. Sitting on the terrace at sunset, drinking the lovely wines of Gigondas from the vineyards surrounding the house was to be in paradise.
The house is equipped with everything one could conceiveable want or need and all of the appliances and fixtures are top of the line and in perfect working order, including an excellent weber grill and a fully equipped outdoor kitchen.
Mr. Gras is a warm and generous host and one of the great treats for us was a private tour of his winery, Domaine Santaduc, outstanding for Gigondas as well as Chateau Neuf du Pape and other villages of the region. He presented us with bottles from the Clos Derriere vineyard and we were present during the vendange which started during our stay.
The whole experience was wonderful for our family group of seven adults, all lovers of wine and the beautiful region of the Southern Rhone in the Vaucluse.
