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.

The Local View
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!
