Property description

Hello! We only take reservations for weekly periods from a Saturday to a Saturday - we're very sorry for that limitation! It is possible for you to book online with VRBO but our preference is always to discuss bookings with customers in advance to ensure our house is going to work for you rather than receive online bookings without any prior conversation. We understand this is not what everyone wants but over the years (since 2006) it has worked very well for us and our customers. Before you book, we would appreciate it if you please email us at mail@provencevillagehouse.com with your requested dates and we will get back to you by return email.
Please also visit our website (see link further down) for many more photos, information about the region, and visitor comments. You can also contact us directly via our website and book directly with us.

Now, after all that ....


The House
La Louche is in Caromb, a lovely, living village in Provence. The village of Caromb is in Vaucluse, in the heart of Provence. Renowned for its food and wine, its historic villages, breathtaking scenery, sunshine and relaxed lifestyle, this is one part of France where everything still does shut at noon for at least two hours while everyone has lunch.

A large warm and light house built over three levels, La Louche has all the comforts of a modern home while retaining traditional features. There's plenty of space for up to 6 people. It includes an open-plan lounge and dining area with open fireplace, three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

A feature of the house is its wonderful sunny terrace that adjoins the ground floor, making a huge living area. With natural shade and views to Mont Ventoux it’s the perfect place to spend a relaxing Provencal afternoon.

La Louche has been furnished with quality furniture, luxurious linen and top quality electrical equipment including LCD TV receiving English language channels, DVD player and CD player, and wireless broadband internet access if you travel with a laptop.

Designed for food lovers, there's a well-equipped kitchen and a library of recipe books, including Patricia Wells, Richard Olney and Elizabeth David.

Rates include linen, utilities, and local and emergency telephone calls.

The Region
Caromb is wonderfully located for exploring the area. There are many nearby places to visit and enjoy including Vaison la Romaine and Orange, both renowned for their Roman ruins; and villages such as Crillon le Brave, Venasque, Le Barroux and Bédoin.

It’s also a base for visiting the beautiful southern Rhone vineyard villages such as Seguret, Sablet, Gigondas, Vacquereyas and Chateauneuf-de-Pape, and exploring the region’s wines, and the hilltop villages of the Luberon, including Gordes and Roussillon, Menerbes, Lacoste, Bonnieux and Lourmarin.

Larger towns nearby that you can explore include Avignon, with its famous bridge, Orange, Aix-en-Provence and Nimes. On Sunday, the renowned L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue antique market, is only 20 minutes away. There’s also a very picturesque golf course nearby at Fontaine de Vaucluse.

Caromb is surrounded by some of France’s best produce that you can see and buy at local farmers’ markets. Eat at home or dine out in one of the excellent local restaurants. To help you find the best, we provide you with our personalised guides to the region’s food and wine secrets.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: La Louche has four owners, all friends who live in Australia. Two of us (Marg and Zan) live in Sydney and two (sue and Roger) in Hobart, Tasmania. We are all former teachers and somehow ended up as consultants working with organisations that implement large IT systems. But, since we bought La Louche in 2006, Sue and Roger have become even more immersed in France, starting a business a couple of years later importing French wine to Australia. If you enjoy drinking natural wines you may have drunk a wine from one of the producers they work with. They also publish a guide called foodtourist.com which provides advice on good eating around the world. We all try to get to France as often as possibly but also enjoy sharing our house with other people, especially those who return every couple of years.

Why the Owner Chose Caromb, France:
Essentially we found La Louche because it is in a village that fell within a circle we drew on a map around the Velleron Farmers' Market that identified all the areas we could easily reach the market from. We also wanted a house in a living village - somewhere where we could easily visit the boulangerie in the mornings and shop at the local butcher. That meant it had to have enough people living in it all year round (not just in the holiday season) to sustain those shops. In fact we have two boulangeries, several grocery and green grocer shops and a wonderful butcher. We then chose this house because of its shaded terrace that's easily accessible from the living area on the same level and because of its spacious, light rooms. we built a good kitchen and since then have enjoyed many delicious meals on our terrace that overlooks Mont Ventoux.
