Perched on the upper, medieval part of this Provencal town with a rich heritage and a prestigious past, it is just a walk away from the lower part and lively center of Vaison-la-Romaine, a town set in the heart of lush, fertile countryside famous for its wine-making. The house, tastefully decorated in a style combining Provencal furniture with Mediterranean touches, is as welcoming in the summer as in the winter. On the ground floor, a spacious living-room with a convertible sofa, a fire-place, a dining-room seating 6 to 8 people. Adjoining, are a half bathroom, and a separate, fully-equipped kitchen opening onto a quaint balcony. On the second floor, two bedrooms. On the top floor, an attic room, with a futon, opens onto a roof terrace with a view on the upper part of the Medieval city and the Castle ruins. From the living-room a vaulted cellar with stone walls can be accessed, reminiscent of medieval times and especially arranged for tasting the renowned wines of the region.
I live in Paris where I work. I discovered the Vaucluse over 30 years ago and was dreaming of having a house in the south. I finally purchased this cottage three years ago and have been spending weekends there and summer holidays. People are friendly and welcoming and the region has a wealth of interesting activities to offer both physical and cultural.

Vaison la Romaine is set in a beautiful countryside. Both the town and the surrounding area offer a rich variety of landscapes, colours and Mediterranean aromas and a typically provençal mellow lifestyle.
It is close enough to Avignon to be accessible for extended weekends and far enough from the noisy crowds. It offers plenty of leisure and is a restful place to retire from bustling city life.
The stone cottage is in the Medieval part of the city on the hilltop, by a trickling fountain on the old market square. The property dates back to the XVth century, and was renovated by an architect two decades ago. It is full of charm with different levels and ambiance's in each room from the cellar to the attic and terrace overlooking the castle ruins and the old town rooftops. It is conveniently located, at walking distance from the center of the town, lively during the day and very quiet and peaceful at night.
Thank you so much for having us to stay in your amazing house. It is so well equipped and very comfortable. We have had such a wonderful and happy holiday-- we really wanted for nothing.
Thank you also to Michelle, so accommodating and helpful.
We would love to come again next year.

We loved the house -- the design allows for lots of privacy for two couples. We also loved the terrace -- great for drinks and coffee.
We did lots of walking in the area -- found walks at Séguret & up behind the Château here. The climb along the Dentelles de Montmirail was a highlight. A drive to the neighbouring villages & Le Mont Ventoux was interesting and gave us a better perspective on the area as a whole.
Another highlight was the food!! Loved the local pastries etc, so different from home in Australia and enjoyed trying the wines. It is indeed a lovely area and being in the medieval town added lots to the fun!
