About the property

Farmhouse in Gigondas, Vaucluse, Provence France - Very Tranquil with vineyards on 3 Sides, Well situated for Wine Tasting, Markets and walking & cycling

Our house is a Provencal Mas or farmhouse which has been tastefully restored and modernised but still retains many original features. It is set in the heart of the Southern Rhone wine region in a small hamlet called La Beaumette in the commune of Gigondas. See link below for Google earth view.

It is nestled amongst the vineyards and has a walled garden and at its centre a 10x5 metre heated salt water swimming pool. The house has everything needed for a relaxing comfortable stay in the privacy of a secure garden sheltered from the mistral, at the entrance is an open barn which gives shade for parking 2 cars. The garden has a small lawn and an abundance of flowers and herbs for your use, there is a large patio area overlooking the pool with table which seats 8-10 comfortably and is shaded by vines, the BBQ is just to the side so alfresco dining is fun for all there are also plenty of loungers to choose from.

The house is south facing, on the ground floor you have a well equipped kitchen and dining room, leading to a utility room with washing machine, a larder is down a few steps, then the shower room with WC. To your right is the cosy living room with TV for videos only and library on the mezzanine book can be borrowed or exchanged. Also on the ground floor is the bar and summer room with French windows leading to the patio where we tend to live.

One set of stairs takes you from the main door to the first floor where you will find the 4 spacious bedrooms (2 large doubles, one double and a twin room), a bathroom with bath and shower, separate WC and an en-suite bathroom to the master bedroom with bath and shower. The master bedroom is a large converted hay loft with exposed beams and accessed from the main house but also from the summer room from here there is access to a first floor terrace with fabulous views over the countryside the terrace also leads down to the garden.

From La Beaumette you have a short drive or bike ride to the bakers, general grocers, chemist, butchers etc in Violes but a bit further for the supermarkets. There are markets every day of the week. Wine is everywhere with 3 to buy from on the doorstep.
