Property description

This large, impressive villa (3,000 sq. ft) is set in the Provencal countryside, surrounded by vineyards and orchards. Located just outside the renowned, perched village of Venasque, it lies between Carpentras and Gordes on the edge of the Luberon. Peaceful, private and accessed by electronic gates, the villa is nestled within 7.5 acres of grounds and, in addition to the spacious, attractive gardens, cherry orchard and olive trees, there is a pool;, summer kitchen for outside cooking and dining; a boules court; and a number of terraces from which to enjoy the wonderful views of Mt. Ventoux. Venasque dates back to the Romans and has been designated 'one of the most beautiful villages in France'. The XIII century church has a Baptistry from the VI century, built on the site of a pagan temple. With its fascinating history, lovely buildings, restaurants and artist studios, it is a special place to visit and only a minute's drive or a picturesque walk from the villa. The villa is decorated to a high standard with provencal fabrics and furnishings and has a large salon; small salon and dining area; fully-fitted kitchen; utility room; and a cloakroom off the large entrance hall. The four attractive bedrooms can sleep eight in two sings which are accessed by separate staircases allowing for additional privacy.

The charming village of Venasque dominates the Nesque valley and the Carpentras plain, with wonderful views of Mt. Ventoux and the Dentelles of Montmirail. It has an interesting history as the former capital of the Comtat Venaisson, and its famous baptistry, 12th century church and three Saracen towers all have historic classification. It is ideally situated for Avignon, the Luberon, Camargue, Arles, Nimes, the Pont du Gard, Orange, Chateauneuf du Pape and the wine villages of the Cote du Rhone.

Nearby are many attractive villages to explore, and there is a multitude of activities to pursue - not forgetting the great art of relaxation!
