About the property

A four person cottage (Gite) with private gardens & pool.

The Oaks is totally private but not isolated, with the village of Villes-sur-Auzon only a 1 minute drive away (approx 2km – walking distance). We are situated in a 10 hectare vineyard to the front of the property and woodlands to the rear – the Auzon River runs through the bottom of the garden – with views to the hilltop village of Blauvac and the Gorge de la Nesque.

The cottage has it's own private garden which is fenced and away from the main Mas (and the Auzon stream). The Oaks has a terraced area and a stone built barbecue and backs onto the woodlands – sun beds and cushions are provided. The swimming pool is next to the cottage and is accessible from the private garden.

The Oaks is on one level with exposed beamed ceilings, with the bedrooms furnished to a high quality, overlooking the private gardens and have a shower etc..

The lounge has two very comfortable sofa's, occasional table etc., and has the television with English satellite, a DVD player with MP3 facilities, a CD player and Wi Fi.

The kitchen is fitted out in the traditional Provencal style – stone built – and is fully equipped with fridge/freezer, microwave, washing machine etc.

The kitchen and lounge are open-plan with the French windows leading from the lounge to the terrace area. The kitchen also overlooks the terrace.

All prices quoted are fully inclusive of all bed linen and towels including beach towels

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a superb place to stay. The owners have been running the business for over 12 years, and they have thought of everything. The four poster bed was a real bonus as we had never slept in one before.

The pool was lovely, with views to Mont Ventoux. I would highly recommend this property to anyone, in fact we have booked again in another 3 months. Thank you both very much.

Just what we wanted. Quiet, peaceful, and without any neighbours.

The hosts are lovely, and have thought of everything. The Gite/Cottage has everything that you could wish for. I would personally call it a heaven - for people who just want to get away from it all.

If you want peace and tranquility, then this is the place to come.

Home from Home, but with a twist. You don't have a vineyard in your back garden.

  • 5 of 5

This is the third year that we have stayed at this property, and we have already made plans to come back in October. We love the local village of Villes sur Auzon, it has everything you need. For a bigger shop, head into Mazan, it's only a short drive away, but the bakers in the village are second to none. Plus it's in walking distance.

Deborah is very thoughtful hostess, and makes a holiday with her an absolute pleasure, as nothing is too much trouble (we broke a glass, and she was around straight away with another, sorry Debs.). We missed Troy their Saint Bernard, he was a character.

Glorious Ventoux retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed with Deborah on many occasions and have ALWAYS had a very warm welcome from the whole family including TROY the dog. The property is always very tidy with all things you would need for a self catering holiday.

Pool is kept in very good order. This is the ideal place to go for Scenery - right under the Mt Ventoux. The nearest village is a stiff hill walk away (less than 5 mins by car) Explore the Terraventoux coop for wine and two very good restaurants in the village - best of all though this is the perfect retreat for a very quiet and enjoyable holiday, my wife and I certainly recommend this to anyone that will listen.
