About Pierre Meffre
I am originally from Vaison, so I know a lot about local life. I practice road cycling and running. For these two sports, I can give you abundant advice about numerous courses in the region.
Pierre Meffre purchased this House in 1968
Why Pierre Meffre chose Vaison-la-Romaine
The Mas du Castel is our family house; it belonged to my grandparents. I enjoy every bit of it, and particularly the park, which I maintain all year round myself. This house is my childhood, the meals with my grandparents, the games in the garden.
What makes this House unique
The immense advantage of this location is its peacefulness and its proximity to the town centre. The large park allows for relaxing and enjoying the Mediterranean climate. The house is vast and cool in summer. It easily welcomes 10 people.

If you want a bog standard holiday villa this is not for you, but if you want a beautiful old property packed with character and quirkiness, a pool straight out of "Call me by your name" and acres of fairytale gardens it surely is. The location would be hard to beat; short walks take you to a charming medieval village in one direction, in the other an attractive small town with all the shops and facilities you could need and the largest Roman town open to the public in France. The only drawback is that there are a lot of steps in the garden so it would not suit young children. The house is well equipped and we (parents, 4 adult children plus partners had a wonderful, relaxing time
An excellent relaxing week in the Vaucluse
Excellent swimming pool
Very nice house with lots of sitting areas
A lot of information on the area and the region avalilable.
Lovely surroundings, close to the town center
We loved visiting Vaison-la-Romaine, Séguret, Gigondas the Mont Ventoux and also Le Sentier des Ocres and Roussillon.
Helpful and very friendly owners
We stayed for a week in late Spring and enjoyed the gardens in their full glory. The setting is amazing and the property is well located with a very short stroll into town. The house is perfectly comfortable and clean. Any issues or questions we had were dealt with swiftly by the owner (who was very helpful in suggesting activities or providing information on the area). We had two babies under the age of 18 months with us and the place is well set up for kids. I'd recommend it and there is every chance we return there for another week.
Super! Alles aanwezig voor een deugddoende en ontspannende vakantie.
Ruime woning. Mooie tuin. Prima zwembad. Natuur op een boogscheut. Stadje op wandelafstand. Vlot contact met eigenaar.
Magnifique maison rustique pour une réunion de famille
Nous avons passé un merveilleux moment avec toute notre famille. La maison a bien fonctionné pour notre grand groupe et le temps nous a permis de profiter du grand espace extérieur, de la piscine et du tennis de table. La maison est idéalement située pour visiter tous les quartiers de Vaison-la-Romaine.
Très agréable maison de caractère!
Le descriptif a tenu toutes ses promesses: grande et belle maison de caractère. Le salon "marocain" fut particulièrement apprécié: toujours bien frais, et possédant une lumière particulière: notre petit fils âgé de 6 semaines y a trouvé un apaisement total, et les adultes y ont fait de belles siestes. Chambres et sdb très agréables à l'étage. Grand parking sur le devant, super pratique. Piscine à l'ancienne, agréable. Nombreux arbres fruitiers sur la propriété: figuiers, sureaux, poiriers, pêchers, pommiers: des fruits à portée de main tous les jours. Et quelle situation géniale par rapport à la Cité Médiévale, et même tout le reste de Vaison. Un hommage particulier à la boulangerie de la place Montfort, à côté du Comptoir des Voconces (recommandé aussi). L'Ouvèze était plus haute que lors de notre visite précédente en 2015: un vrai plaisir que d'aller nager dans les petites baignoires naturelles.
Coming from Lyon, take exit Bollène on the A7 motorway. Coming from Marseille or Montpellier, take exit Orange. Follow the direction of Vaison-la-Romaine (30 km in both cases). Le Grand offers a relaxation space for adults and playing room for children. You are staying in a calm area, a stone's throw away from the town centre with its numerous shops. Numerous hikes and bicycle tours are available, starting from the house. Vaison offers loads of restaurants, a 2-room cinema (alternative films), and an antique theatre that receives several festivals every summer (dance, choral music, and variety).
