About the Property

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Our home is situated in a 16th century stone house at the center of Venasque (population 150), voted one of the most beautiful villages in France. On a quiet cul-de-sac, the house is private yet within walking distance of a boulangerie, a small grocery, and three fine restaurants. Our apt. has a rooftop terrace overlooking a valley of vineyards with spectacular views of Mount Ventoux. We have a second, adjoining apartment (sleeps 4) that can be linked and rented as a larger unit (sleeps 10) or shared by two families vacationing together.

Bouche Trou is a duplex that offers comfortable Provencal living year-round. Venasque, known for its cherry orchards, is a perched village surrounded by ancient, Saracen walls. Each morning, we go around the corner for our morning croissants and then follow one of 10 hiking trails from the village through glorious countryside.
The apartment has a big kitchen/dining area, spacious living room, three bedrooms (two Queen, two single beds) and two baths.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: My husband, Padraic, an ardent cyclist first visited Venasque when he came to follow the Tour de France with his sons. Once we discovered this gem of a village, we came back often, finally buying our home in 1993. We love the around-the-corner boulangerie, the hiking trails, the markets, the morning light, and all things Provencal.

Why the Owner Chose Venasque, France:
The most beautiful village in Provence. Private, quiet, an easy drive to the vineyards of the Rhone Valley, Avignon, and surrounding hilltowns. We love being in the village with access to a good croissant and three lovely restaurants.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Dinner on our rooftop terrace overlooking Mt. Ventoux. Heaven.
