Beautifully renovated 16th century house in stunning hilltop village in Provence

Located in: Venasque
Venasque is a stunning, beautifully restored medieval village defined by a 6th Century Baptisty at one end and the remains of the old fortifications at the other.

The Venasque holiday house is located in a small square ("La Planette") near to the village church. It has a picture window which offers one of the valley's most stunning views of Mont Ventoux. It has been renovated artfully, combining modern effects with original features. The ground floor is open plan with a well-equipped, modern kitchen, dining area and a separate living area with leather sofa and fireplace (for winter visitors - this place is every bit as stunning any time of the year).

There are four bedrooms on two floors, each with a double bed and both floors have a well-equipped bathroom. There is a second living room on the first floor for watching TV (UK channels available) or getting away from it. Part of the house's architectural beauty is the open, stone staircases. Stair gates are provided at ground floor and on the top floor.

The cellar includes a washing machine for guests' use and there is Wi-Fi throughout the house. The pool has an automated system and electric cover. The night-time arrosage (sprinkler system) ensures the garden is one of the greenest around.

The garden is divided into three sections: closest to the house is the terrace for outdoor dining and a small grassed garden with olive and apricot trees. Through a gate and down a few steps is the swimming pool and at the far end of the garden is a gravelled area with seating, the perfect spot to enjoy a pre-dinner glass of wine whilst watching the sun go down over nearby Carpentras.

According to the sign as you enter the village, Venasque is one of the most beautiful villages in France. We couldn't agree more.

Venasque is perched on a rock with the ruins of the medieval fortifications at one end (with a superb view of the region and a great children's play park) and, at the other end, a picture postcard 11th century church built on the remains of a 6th century baptistery, itself constructed on the ruins of a Roman temple, once the area's cathedral, hence the old name for the region, the Comtat Venaissin.


For such a small village (most of the inhabitants live in the Notre Dame de Vie convent in the valley), Venasque is well provided for with a bread shop open every day except Monday (when there is a small market in St Didier, 3 miles away) and a small shop open every morning except for Mondays. There are restaurants too, offering a range of foods to suit most people (although the Auberge at nearby Le Beaucet is worth going further afield for).

For the more athletic (or anyone feeling guilty after all the fine food and wine), there is a sports area on the edge of the village including a tennis court and the 20 minute walk around the rock should be a daily ritual.

Around Venasque

Apart from St Didier, the town of Carpentras is only 10 minutes away and has supermarkets, restaurants and one of the very best markets every Friday when traders take over the town centre. Avignon is half an hour away and for those who, like us, want to explore the region viticulturally, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas and most of the great wine villages of the Vaucluse are not more than about half an hour's drive. We would be happy to make recommendations of places to visit according to your preferences, wine budget, language needs etc.

What makes Venasque so perfectly situated is all the above together with its proximity to the Luberon, a region which is home to many other spectacular villages (including Gordes, Roussillon and Lacoste, home to the Marquis de Sade) as well as the beautiful working monastery, the Abbaye de Senanque (which sells the best honey in the world). Just a little further away (generally no more than an hour's drive) are other spectacular sites including the Ardeche's Pont d'Arc, the Pont du Gard and the Postman's Palace
