A regular amongst the style pages of interior design magazines, this 18th century Provencal Mas has the feeling of a chic boutique hotel, hidden amongst the vineyards of the Côtes-du-Rhone.
Breathtaking scenery and a sun-drenched climate have attracted visitors to this part of Provence since Roman times. Today, as the ranging Mont Ventoux and jagged Dentelles de Montmirail still lineate the skyline, so antiquity remains in abundance, from the Roman villa mosaics at Vaison, to the magnificent 1st century amphitheatre at Orange. The slightly raised position of Le Vaisonnais, and some perfectly oriented terraces, capture much of this history in one sweeping outlook.
The one-of-a-kind, fabulous boutique designed interior is decorated with strikingly vibrant canvasses and some contemporary furnishing, is none-the-less comfortable and in many ways traditional. The master bedroom is particularly appealing, not least for its designer en suite bathroom with rain shower and views over vineyards to the Mont Ventoux.
Accommodation is divided between the main house, with kitchen, living areas and three bedrooms, including the sizeable master bedroom, and an adjacent guest house, with a further double and twin bedroom, each with bathroom.
In addition to the formal dining area in the main house, a large, covered terrace is positioned off the kitchen and surrounded with lavender. Several additional, informal dining spots can be found around the grounds, positioned to enjoy the splendid outlook.
The pool area has an electric cover, and equally with children in mind, several informal play areas with teepee's are to be found at various points around the grounds. Views from the pool and gardens extend over vineyards to the village of Vaison-la-Romaine; from the master bedroom the sun rises behind the Mont Ventoux.
The views over prestigious Côtes du Rhone vineyards to the Roman town of Vaison-la-Romaine, really give this villa the 'wow' factor.
N.B. Due to an unprotected fountain in the driveway children should be supervised.
