About the property

Villa in Vaison la Romaine. A Sanctuary At Only 5' Walk To Shops, Restaurants & Cafés Of The Main Village

Nestled in the ' old town' of the medieval hilltop village of Vaison, this authentic 17th century village house has wonderful old stone work, stunning landscape views, an enclosed courtyard garden and a private outdoor pool. Entirely renovated and tastefully decorated while maintaining many of the original features like its magnificent stone staircase, the interior is welcoming, cool and surprising spacious. oozing with old-world charm and character, this gorgeous villa is situated in a mainly pedestrian zone and surrounded by an old stonework wall for ultimate privacy. But given its sanctuary-like feel, it's just a few minutes walk from Vaison's lively center with its Roman ruins, amphitheater, castle, many cafes and gastronomic restaurants, shops and its weekly Provencal market. It's an ideal holiday base to explore the aera's many interests such as wine tasting, climbing or cycling the Mont Ventoux, famous antique markets and lavender fields

About Martine & Gilbert Bourgeois

We are Belgian and we bought this property in France 30 years ago.We've always took care of it and improved it. Now it's organized as our main home. It's been fully renovated. We work in the building business, so this "building" is our masterpiece.

Martine & Gilbert Bourgeois purchased this villa in 1985

Why Martine & Gilbert Bourgeois chose Haut-Vaucluse

We bought this property because it has an easy access by TGV or aircraft. It's not remote but also peaceful because surrounded by a wall.

What makes this villa unique

Vaison is lively but at human size between a little town and a village and just a few minutes walk from the property.

Fantastic house in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We were here with friends for a week of cycling and I couldn't imagine finding a better place to stay. The pool which gets afternoon sun was perfect for hanging out apres ride. Amazing amount of great outdoor space considering the location in the Medieval city. The quality of the daylight in every room was wonderful. Very quiet at night. The kitchen is a little small for a group of 8 but not even close to being something that would keep me from coming back.

An oasis

  • 5 of 5

We were 6 adults who love to cook. The house felt like home, with lots of space to enjoy each others company or be quietly on your own. Beautifully furnished, incredible light and view.

I echo all the previous reviews

  • 5 of 5

I agree wholeheartedly with every review

the house is stunning, the views are amazing, the village is wonderful !

The house is a lot bigger that appears on the photos, beautifully furnished with amazing art and antiques. there are 2 dining tables indoors and 2 outdoors, so we ate out as often as possible.

There were some lovely touches, such as fresh bars of soap in all the bathrooms

As mentioned, the streets are very narrow, we did get our Clio up with about an inch clearance, providing valuable entertainment for the tourists.

I would willingly go back there again !

Amazing - even better than the photographs!!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot recommend this property highly enough! Situated (right next to the Cathedral) in the medieval sector of the beautiful town of Vaison - like stepping back in time but with all modern conveniences on hand! Inside, the characterful property is beautifully styled with quality furnishings, all the equipment you could need and 4 superb bathrooms (2 with walk in showers; 2 with claw foot baths). Outside, there is a lovely, private garden - with an equally lovely(private) pool. Michelle, the wonderful, local housekeeper, was always available (and ready) to answer (often silly!) questions, give recommendations and make our stay as brilliant as it could be.

The property is just a few moments walk from a range of restaurants (and sites) in the medieval city - and a few minutes from the wider facilities in Vaison's main centre. It is an ideal base for exploring the many local Provencal delights (e.g. the "wine villages", Isle sur la Sourge, Nyons and Mont Ventoux). If you don't want to go far, there is plenty to keep you occupied in Vaison (e.g. the huge Tuesday Market, tours of and performances at the amphitheatre, interesting local shops, eating / drinking in the lovely main square and beyond ...). One tip: if you think that anyone in your party might be challenged by a slightly steep walk to the property, hire the smallest car available so that you can easily negotiate the tricky drive up to drop them off - before parking outside the medieval area.

Thank you for a wonderful holiday base!

Lovely house in a beautiful historical setting

  • 5 of 5

We (family of four with teenagers) loved the house and had a relaxing week, spending time around the pool, visiting the historical sites of Vaison, and eating well in a number of good nearby restaurants.The pool is fantastic, a very good size for a town house in a conservation area. The house is comfortable, well equipped, and atmospheric. An excellent place. Madame Paris, the housekeeper, was friendly and helpful. Thank you.

The photos are an understatement...

  • 5 of 5

... of how great this place looks.

Fabulous house, great local host, amenities, bars and restaurants on the doorstep (down the hill). The town is surrounded by the Provencal countryside and le Geant is only 20 mins ride away. What more do you need?

We'll be back.

Vive la France.
