Twelve years ago we discovered la Crèche and have returned each year since to spend a week or two in this comfortable gîte (apartment) in Provence. The owner, who speaks a little English, is very friendly and helpful, but does not intrude on your privacy. La Crèche is attached to the owner's house and has its own separate driveway, entrance and terrace which overlook the lawn and vineyards in the distance, a very pleasant spot to enjoy a glass of wine while listening to the buzz of the cicadas. The other accommodation, le Mas, is a separate 3 bedroom house with its own private area as well. The large swimming pool which is shared by the two gîtes is fenced for safety and perfect for enjoying a dip on a hot afternoon.
While not luxurious, la Crèche offers good value and comfortable accommodation with a true French flavour. The kitchen has a refrigerator, gas stove with oven, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker and everything else needed for a self catering holiday. In the living area there is a TV with cable connection and a DVD player. The bathroom has a shower stall, double sink vanity, and a separate toilet room. There is also a washing machine within the unit. Upstairs, there are two adjoining bedrooms. It is necessary to walk through the first bedroom in order to access the larger second one, making it suitable for a family but not for two couples. The staircase to the second floor is quite steep and may be of concern if you have toddlers. Wireless internet is available but the signal is weak and sometimes it is necessary to move outside and closer to the owner’s house.
La Crèche is located in a rural area surrounded by vineyards and is a ten minute walk from the small village of Vacqueyras. The trails and lightly traveled roads in the area provide pleasant opportunities to walk or cycle. For the more energetic there are trails leading to the tops of neighbouring rocky hills which offer fantastic views over the Rhone Valley. Within a 15 minute drive of Vacqueyras there are several major supermarkets (Aubignon and Sarriens) and a variety of excellent French restaurants. The Monday morning farmers' market in Bedoin is well worth a visit. For wine lovers there are caves to visit in the area of Vacqueyras, Beaumes de Venise, Gigondas, and Séguret, to mention a few. We have found la Crèche to be the perfect base from which to take day trips to explore this region of Provence.
