Our Provençal holiday house (built 2006) has a traditional design but provides all modern comfort. It is situated on a hill overlooking the ancient village of Aurel, Vaucluse.

It contains 3 bedrooms (kingsize, queensize & 2 single beds), 2 bathrooms and a spacious living room with open kitchen, all carefully decorated.

The swimming pool with hydro jets and jet stream is the perfect chill-out spot on hot days. Nights tend to be cool, even in Summer, as the house is situated at some 800 metres (0,5 mile) above sea level, right at the foot of Mont Ventoux.

But Aurel is worth a visit in every season. In Spring you can enjoy the blossoming flowers, while in June & July the entire region transforms in a purple oasis. This is thé lavender hotspot. In Autumn the foliage of the oak forests displays astonishing colours, while in Winter the occasional snow will give Mont Ventoux that little extra.

The garden has a stunning view over the quiet Sault valley. All you need to do is take a book out of our library and relax in the hammock.

Unesco World Heritage Sites such as Avignon and Orange are only an hour’s drive away. Wine lovers will be attracted by the vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas, Vacqueyras and Beaumes-de-Venise, all easily accesible.

Hikers and cyclists will love the mountainous region round mythical Mont Ventoux (1912 metres) and the gorges of the Nesque river.
