    Beautiful Village House, Centre Roussillon, Private Pool, fab Views Booking 2020

    Historic vacation home in Roussillon
    Featured in The Sunday Times' 50 Sensational Villas, the house is right in the middle of one of the most famous villages in Provence - Roussillon. Famed for its ochre cliffs and soil, it provides one of the most stunning backdrops to any rental house. While the house is only yards from cafes and restaurants, it offers total privacy and is beautifully quiet inside the house. There is easy parking in the village and in walking distance.The light on the village is stunning all year round with crisp blue skies and a low-winter sun bringing the ochre colour out in winter to hot sun and a bustling village in summer. Perhaps the two best times of year are spring and autumn. In spring, Roussillon comes to life with the restaurants and cafes opening onto the pavements and terraces and the Thursday market returning to full force. The weather can be beautiful and the village lovely out of high season. In autumn the colours are spectacular as the vineyards start to turn to gold and the temperatures still hitting 70 degrees in October. Dogs are welcome but subject to a €50 fee for cleaning payable in cash at the house.Exterior;The house is located just 50m from the market square, a third of a way up into the village on a side street. The living room opens onto a large terrace ideal for outdoor meals (table for 8) which leads up to a smaller upper terrace (table for 6) which commands beautiful panoramic views across the ochre hills. The swimming pool is a little lower down overlooking the lower terrace; it has a ledge on one side approximately 1.5m from the edge and underwater lighting. It is heated up to 24°C free of charge, weather permitting. There is space for loungers on two sides of the pool - there are 4 sun loungers in total.Interior;The attractive front door opens into the spacious and very attractively furnished living room which in turn opens onto a large terrace to one side and a large dining room/kitchen to the other, also with a terrace. The interior is very personalised with antiques, artwork and has a lovely warm atmosphere. Upstairs are a large double bedroom (150cm bed - overlooking the terrace and pool) with an en suite bathroom with a wc (wonderful views from the bath), two twin bedrooms (the larger one (90cm beds) looks over the street and smaller one (75cm beds) has views of the countryside), a shower room and a separate wc.The house is also a wonderful place to stay in winter: log fires, beautiful walks in the winter sunshine, few tourists and is very quiet and peaceful. A fabulous Christmas vacation idea!The three terraces offer a mixture of direct sun and partial shade and there are tables and chairs for outside eating on all three. The village has several cafes and restaurants ranging from simple meals to some very good cooking indeed. Russell Crowe in fact had a party in one of them, Le Simonde, while filming 'A Good Year' a few years ago. Nearly all the restaurants have lovely views. There is a market in the village on Thursday mornings which has all the Provencal goodies you would expect!The village also has a good supermarket, Casino, which has pretty much everything one might need. There is also a butcher and a lovely bakery.Beyond the village there is the local town of Apt which has a fabulous market on Saturday mornings and there is a farmers' market in Coustellet on Sunday mornings. Other local villages worth visiting include Gordes, Bonnieux, Lacoste, Lourmarin and Menerbes. Further away to the east is Avignon, well worth a day trip and only 40 minutes away. To the north there is the mighty Mont Ventoux - one of the highest mountains in Provence, viewable from the village. The drive through Haut-Provence to get there is spectacular. To the south there is the Grand Luberon - well worth a day trip. Aix-en-Provence is the other side of the Luberon and should not be missed.Keywords: House

    TRULY OUR FINEST HOLIDAY EVER
    This is the most beautiful house, quirky and characterful, with lots of space - that gorgeous salon! And the main bedroom is enormous, with a bathroom that has the most spectacular views of the ochre cliffs. The house is beautifully decorated with lovely furniture, rugs and pictures so that you never feel as though you're staying in a featureless holiday home but in somewhere much loved by its owners. It's equipped with everything you could possible need for your stay - stacks of lovely towels, a kitchen with enough plates and cutlery for every meal (not that we ate at home very often as there were so many cafes and restaurants close by). The pretty terraces are a delight, and the pool was a godsend in the blazing August heat. It's in a perfect location in the village, a moment's walk to shops and cafes and delicious ice creams. The village is lively with music in the town square in the evenings (typically jazz duos - nothing raucous and you can't hear it from the house!) There was even a travelling cinema we went to one evening. The village itself is a really fun place to be. There is so much to do in the area - I think we only had one day at home - and the Luberon is so spectacularly beautiful. What helped make it perfect were the hosts, Alice and Clifford, who were charming and generous and completely wonderful. Thank you both for everything!

    Perfect In Every Respect
    We had the most wonderful stay. Clifford and Alice were consummate hosts, providing detailed instructions for making our arrival and departure a snap, and being available to offer speedy solutions to our periodic requests (guitar strings, late takeout, package delivery instructions, etc.). The property itself could not be more centrally located. We marveled at the views while we ate home-cooked meals on the fabulous terrace. We enjoyed late afternoon swims to cool off after long day-trips around the region or meandering along le sentier des ocres... truly magical. We regularly frequented Nino’s Cafe across the street for tasty breakfasts or lunches, fresh squeezed lemonade and orange juice, and even ice cream; the most pleasant, patient and welcoming people in the village. And the house itself is truly a home, furnished with care and a personal touch we rarely get to enjoy on our travels. A truly rich and restful experience, full of little surprises at every turn. If you’re trying to decide between staying in Roussillon or another village in Provence, let this home be the tiebreaker. You won’t regret it! We only hope we’re fortunate enough to be able to return for a longer stay in the not too distant future.

    C’est BYZANCE en PROVENCE
    We had a fabulous three weeks here!

    It was everything I expected loved the style of the house
    The house was what I thought to be typical French in style. The pool great as we were there in the heat wave. Roussillon was a very lovely village and we did day trips and found Roussillon to be the best. The cafe across the road, Nino’s was lovely the people friendly and helpful and the food excellent. We had an amazing electrical storm and lost all power and internet, the young man from the cafe came across and helped us turn the power back on. A must is the Ochre walk starting up the hill past the car park, incredible. We were 2 couples but if there are more adults the 2 single beds in one of the rooms are very small single’s. Clifford and Alice are great hosts and very attentive.

    Perfect Home Base for Exploring Provence!
    We were a family of three generations traveling together, and our stay in Roussillon was everyone's favorite part of the trip. The home is situated in the heart of a bustling village that is not overly-touristy like some of the Provence towns we visited. The nicest thing about this house is that it feels like the family home of friends, not a sterile place tricked out just for rentals. Lots of well-worn books to read in the library, guides to the area, cushions and floaties for the pool, kitchen utensils and dishes all very lovely and Provencal. Comfortable beds and gorgeous views, magnificent bathtub & view in the master bathroom. Parking very near house, not a problem at all. The village is very near Gourdes, so easy to make day trips to the many charming hilltop towns of the Provence, about 45 minutes to Avignon. The house has three outdoor terraces & we used them all - indoor/outdoor living, which we loved. The weather was uncomfortably hot while we were there, so we spent many late afternoons enjoying wine and cheese by the plunge pool. Our hosts, Clifford and Alice, were very caring and concerned – excellent communication before and during our stay. When we couldn’t figure out the washing machine, they got right on the phone to walk us through the instructions. They gave us many excellent insider tips about local experiences (best restaurants, market day, nearby festival with jazz & food trucks). The ochre trail is magnificent - and right outside your door. Worth a trip to the village even if you don’t stay here. Highly recommend. Thank you Clifford and Alice for everything - we would go back in a heartbeat!
