Why Guillaume chose Châteauneuf-du-Pape
This property encompassed all the things I love. It's a superbly renovated old village house with contemporary architectural interiors. It also features a very private courtyard and plunge pool. The village itself is a great place to experience the true Provence, it is full of character and has not been spoiled by too much tourism. It also produces one of France's best wine. The village surroundings offers lots of nature base activities and are also some of the most picturesque landscapes in the country. Both sea and mountain are less than 2 hours away. The proximity of medium and large cities like Avignon, Arles, Marseille, Nimes or Orange is also a big plus when it comes to culture and entertainment.
What makes this House unique
It's rare to have so much privacy and be inside an old village. The plunge pool and multiple terraces allows guests to have their quiet time sunbathing or reading.

Modern conveniences in a medieval town
The house alone, with its modern-medieval look, is worth the stay. But there’s so much more. Everything is nearby. Small grocers are a few minutes away, the Super U grocer is a 10 minute walk, wineries are walking & biking distance, dozens of restaurants, bakeries, & boutique shops waiting to be found in maze of cobblestone. Of course, the ruins of the old pope’s chateau is just behind the home. The climb is beautiful, and the vista at the top priceless with views of the Alps (that you can also see from the home’s top-floor room by the way). You can also park your car here at the pope’s castle parking lot if the closer, lower lot is full. Do not try parking a minibus in the home’s courtyard space. Trust me, you will have the challenge of a lifetime getting it out of the alley. Besides, the courtyard is a charming gathering space where we barbecued using the gas grill and spent evenings unwinding watching the kids play. It’s a very kid-friendly home thanks to the owner and his mother & brother, who are around if you need help. We were provided with a crib, baby monitors, & high chair for the little one and board games and the plunge pool for the grade schoolers. Can’t thank them enough for their thoughtfulness. While mountains, beaches, & Roman ruins are within a hour of the home, which we easily visited, we found ourselves perfectly content to explore this lovely hamlet, it’s winding roads, it’s historic landmarks. I’m smitten with this place and this home.
The property has been restored to high standards and provides many spaces for privacy or gathering on a small footprint. Only recommendation would be to replace the two sofas in the living room and replace the broken wicker chair.
Very nice home in very quiet village
Beautiful home in a lovely, small village. Close to the center of town and everything is walkable. Parking is challenging even in the public parking areas. Our 2 criticisms are: old, thin towels in bathrooms should be replaced and the furniture in the living area is conpletely unusable. Too soft and low to the ground and the wicker chairs are not safe. A nice sofa and chair would improve this home tremendously.
Lovely house in wonderful wine village
Large restored home close to everything
PEFECT location, don’t pass up this wonderful gite!
Our family recently stayed for 5 days in Chalon Sur Soane, This gite is so wonderful, and the perfect location for wine tasting and relaxation.
The unit is SPOTLESS, with comfy beds and linens. The kitchen is packed full of everything you need to cook a family meal. The island is the perfect place for preperation, and the barstools worked well to sit, have a glass of wine and relax.
My husband and I were on the top floor, in the master suite. The bathtub was WONDERFUL, shower clean and spacious and terrace was the perfect place for a glass of wine in the evening. Plus the view of the lights at night was magical!
Our daughters shared the bedroom on the second floor, and really enjoyed their terrace and direct access to the plunge pool.
Our 15 year old son stayed in the “bunk room”, and that worked out well for him. If we had multiple children or young adults, this would be the perfect place!
Since our group was only 5 people, we did not use the separate “suite” but we peaked in and it was beautiful!
A special feature is that you will be behind a gated courtyard. So you will have wonderful privacy and it makes it feel extra special!
Communication was perfect, and I even left a nice pice of jewelry! I touched base and let them know and they mailed it back to me in the USA! THANK YOU SO MUCH! 😊�
I would highly recommend walking to the chateau at the top of the hill, as it is beautiful. Also ther are a few wonderful restaurants in town. And the wine tasing in the area... magnificent!
Don’t pass this location up! You will not be disappointed!
Thanks Janette for this great review.
I'm glad you enjoyed the house.
Great house in a fantastic position
We had a great stay made all the better by the lovely warm weather in early April. We stayed with our 2 grown up daughters and their partners in the 3 double rooms. There is another room with 3 bunk beds which makes this a great place for 2 families with their children.
The house has everything you need to make the holiday work well.
The only issue is parking in CNDP is not easy and we stayed on the wine festival weekend when car parking was at a premium and it was a long walk when dragging the cases!
This is the 2nd time we have stayed here and would definitely do so again.
