About the property

Peaceful rural location perfect for romantic hideaway or fun family holiday. From 2 to 10 guests.

Rourebeau was discovered as a ruined farmhouse 50 years ago and has been lovingly restored into a simply furnished but comfortable family holiday home. The house is located down a short track and is surrounded by 3 acres of land. Its unique appeal is the perfect tranquility of the setting surrounded by vineyards and sunshine. The nearest village is Mollans-sur-Ouveze, 2 miles away, and Vaison-La-Romaine is 15 minutes drive.

The house can accommodate two families with 10 people in 5 bedrooms, or is perfect for a couple seeking peace and relaxation. There is a 10M x 5M swimming pool with childproof fencing and alarm, set 30 metres from the house. There is a single open plan kitchen and living area with a large log fireplace. The house is usually rented by family and friends but we often have free weeks, and outside the main holiday periods we welcome enquiries from smaller groups (and can discuss rental terms). Many friends have spent happy honeymoons there!

The house is set on two levels:

First floor (accessible from the terrace)

•Kitchen/living/dining room - a large open plan area with kitchen, dining table and chairs, and sitting room area around a large open fireplace.

•Bedroom 1 - is located down a corridor leading from the main room. This is the large master double bedroom with wooden beams and full length windows looking towards Mt Ventoux

•Bedroom 2 - a small bedroom with a bunkbed

•Bathroom 1 - with shower, bath and WC

Ground floor

•Playroom - with spare sofa bed. Stairs from here lead up to central living area on the first floor.

•Bedroom 3 - off the playroom is a small room with a bunkbed

•Bedroom 4 - off the playroom with a small double bed and a fold-up single bed. Through this room is a small corridor that leads to a bathroom and a further bedroom.

•Bedroom 5 - large double bedroom is accessible via Bedroom 4, but also has independent access from outside.

•Bathroom 2- with WC and bath (with shower head)

•Separate WC - with washbasin

•Utility area – with washing machine

There is no WiFi or television as we prefer to disconnect on holiday

About Tim and Auriol Adams

We live in England and have three teenage children, and we spend our summer holidays at Rourebeau.

Tim and Auriol Adams purchased this house in 1967

Why Tim and Auriol Adams chose Drome Provencale

Rourebeau has been in our family since 1967 when my parents first travelled to Provence and fell in love with the peace and beauty of the region. They found an old ruined farmhouse and we have converted the barns over the years into a simply furnished but comfortable family holiday home. It is situated on the border of the Drome and Vaucluse, in Northern Provence, set in the undulating foothills of Mount Ventoux, surrounded by vineyards, olive groves, fruit orchards and working farms. It is 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, and cycling (Mount Ventoux for the adventurous). There are numerous delicious local restaurants, bakers and markets and it is in the heart of the Cotes du Rhone wine producing country. There are many things to explore, but it’s also amazing how much time you can spend beside the swimming pool!
