Set among extensive vineyards with the Dentelles de Montmirail mountains as a striking backdrop, Gigondas Villa is a delightful Provencal-style villa with pool situated close to the village of Gigondas, well known for its excellent local wines. Most rooms and the grounds have a superb view over the countryside, wooded hills and mountains.
This Provence villa with pool is well equipped and even though it can sleep 8 people we feel it is much more comfortable with a maximum of 7. It's an ideal holiday home in a good location for enjoying and exploring the region's interesting villages and towns.
The pretty perched village of Gigondas has a small grocery shop and an excellent restaurant. Other attractive places to visit in the area include Beaumes de Venise and Vaison la Romaine, where you will find cafés and restaurants, shops and an excellent weekly market, as well as the important Roman archaeological site. Nearby Orange also has numerous restaurants and pavement cafes, while music concerts held in the dramatic Roman amphitheatre are a delight. The spectacular Pont du Gard Roman aqueduct is another option for a memorable day trip. This most attractive Provence villa and pool is available all year round.
This is one of my favourites, a great family holiday villa. Imagine how wonderful it would be to stay in a place surrounded by vineyards with no-one else around ... a true Provencal experience. Of course, if you like good wines you will know that this is one of the most famous wine districts, so do spend some time visiting the local estates to sample the local wines at your leisure. Restaurants to try include "L’Oustalet" on Place du Village, which has a very good reputation, and "Le Caveau des Gourmets" in the middle of the village - their cave (cellar) is just outside the village and you can taste and buy wines here too. You may decide to take a case or two home with you - a great way to remember a wonderful holiday The owner also suggests La Bastide Bleue and Côté Terrasse in Seguret,'Le Bistrot du 0 and L'Annexe in Vaison la Romaine.

A Perplexing Mixture.

The property is set in vineyards about two kilometers downhill from Gigondas rather than on the edge of the village. It is approached by way of a drainage channel which doubles as a single track road. In heavy rain it is actually cut off. The pool area and plot are attractive and as described although the pool was out of action for a whole day for maintenance. The property itself is a fairly comfortable Provencal farmhouse. A number of examples of poor maintenance were evident including bulbs not working in the upper bedroom, fridge and above the stove with neither pop-up plug working in the bathroom. Fans were lacking extension leads and sufficient adapter plugs. The very slow wi-fi did not work for two days as a result of an incorrect password. Similarly the television handsets had incomplete instructions. The shower cubicle is actually in the boiler room with a steep step to enter. The property is a perplexing mixture of promise and disappointment.
We had a marvellous stay at the villa in Gigondas
We had a marvellous stay at the villa in Gigondas the setting was beautiful and the accommodation certainly met and exceeded our expectations. The pool was fabulous and we would be happy to return in the future. I would especially like to thank Pip who went way beyond the call of duty to find me an open dentist and followed up to make sue that I was OK. Also the caretaker and her mother were very sweet. Only one small blot was lack of air conditioning but there were plenty of fans which worked very well. We had a wondetful relaxing holiday with our grown up family and will cherish the memories.
Thank you for your good service.
Our observations are as follows:
• Beautiful views;
• Well-equipped and furnished;
• Conveniently located for attractive near-by towns;
• Not enough shade for outside dining;
• Better clothes-hanging facilities would help;
• More fans needed given the absence of air conditioning and the hot weather. There were only three and so the upstairs was too hot to use.
Overall, we would consider using it again.
Note from Quality Villas (Aug 15)
The owner will address the lack of shade, clothes hanging facilities and will provide more fans as suggested.
The villa was well equiped
