House in Vaison La Romaine, Vaucluse, Cote DAzur, France - A Location Of Perfect Tranquility, 2 Miles To The Nearest Village Of Mollans-Sur-Ouveze
Rourebeau was discovered as a ruined farmhouse over 40 years ago and has been lovingly restored by the same family. It is situated on the border of the Drome and Vaucluse, in Northern Provence. The house is located down a short track and is surrounded by its own 3 acres of land. The nearest village is Mollans-sur-Ouveze, 2 miles away. It is in the undulating foothills of Mount Ventoux, surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and fruit orchards. It is a peaceful rural location surrounded by working farms, whilst being in easy reach of many of Provence’s best tourist attractions, including Avignon, Orange and its Roman theatre and Vaison La Romaine with its famous market. There are many outdoor activities possible with walking, climbing in the Dentelles, swimming in river gorges, cycling (Mount Ventoux for the adventurous), or just sun bathing. There are numerous delicious local restaurants and it is in the heart of the Cotes du Rhone wine producing country.
About the Owner
About Tim and Auriol Adams
We live in England and have three small children, but we spend our summer holidays at Rourebeau.
Tim and Auriol Adams purchased this house in 1960
Why Tim and Auriol Adams chose Drome Provencale
The house has been in our family since the 1960's when my parents first traveled to Provence and fell in love with the peace and beauty of the region. They found an old farmhouse and we have converted it over the years into a comfortable family holiday home. It's unique appeal is the perfect tranquility of the house and its setting amidst vineyards and sunshine. Local bakers, markets, restaurants, rivers and mountains are all there for exploring but its amazing how much time you can spend beside the swimming pool! We normally rent the house to friends and family but occasionally have some spare weeks to rent.
