About the Property

Happiness is… relaxing in your own Provence rental house!

The Lys of Rochemaure accomodates up to 8 confortably and is a tasteful and completely renovated home dating from the 16th Century. A stunning example of continuity and change, the house and village streets are steeped in the medieval charm of Central Provence while being only 5 minutes from the growing urban center of the city of Montélimar. Guests can enter through the castle wall at the south entrance of Rochemaure, which is called 'La Porte des Tournelles'. It is marked by the overhead niche holding the statue of Notre-Dame de Bon Conseil (Our Lady of Good Advice.) Since 1854 she has been watching over the village. The home itself is located on the main historical street of Rochemaure with a view from the patio on the castle. Le Lys has a total of 220m² (2,368 square feet) with 4 generous bedrooms on 3 levels with romantic views. This home is in the center of it all while remaining very peaceful and comfortable.
Rest, relax and enjoy a choice bottle of local Côtes du Rhône while listening to the cicadas and dream of days of old. The entire castle property is laced with hiking trails and the journey to the castle at the top of the mountain is just outside our courtyard door. Let your adventure begin!

THE DREAM VACATION RENTAL FOR PROVENCE SAVVY TRAVELERS

Rochemaure is a small medieval village at the foot of Mount Coirons in the Rhône Valley less than 5 minutes from Montelimar, the famous provencal city of the Nougat candy. Surrounded by its sunflower fields, lavender and hiking trails, this vacation village transports our guests into the French history dating to the Romans. The name 'Rochemaure' comes from the Latin roca maura, in French roche noire meaning 'black rock' because the castle mount is actually composed of ancient volcanic rock.

This village holds a most significant place in the history of France. Not only does it possess a castle from the XII Century belonging to the famous Adhemar family, but the village is home to the chapel 'Notre Dame Des Anges' from the XIII Century, the Castle of Joviac from the XVI, a church from the XIX century, a suspended bridge from the XIX Century classified among the best 100 French bridges and a famous natural volcanic spring exploited by the Romans which continues to provide drinkable water to the villagers & guests (some locals attribute therapeutic virtues to this spring).

Our charming vacation property, the Lys of Rochemaure dating from the XVI Century and the Studio Tournesol rest inside the castle walls and welcomes you today with all the comfort of a new home.

PRESTIGIOUS - EXCLUSIVE - CONVENIENT

Now an officially designated 'Village of Character', Rochemaure represents a rare location for a Provence rental house. It is a historically classified village that is perfectly located in Provence and near Ardeche in the South of France. A perfect accomodation for our guests to discover the top things to do while on vacation in Provence. Enjoy the lavender, sunflower fields, the beautiful cicadas serenades, the best French wines & cuisine, the blue skies and more than 250 sunny days per year with ProvenceVacationHomes.
