Provence villas

Villa in Provence with pool: Bastide St Restitut is a charming 16th century mas just one mile from the delightful medieval hilltop village of St Restitut on the Drome-Vaucluse border, an area of vineyards, lavender fields, orchards, truffles and of course the famous 'herbes de Provence'. Once a simple bergerie, this beautiful property has been luxuriously renovated and elegantly furnished.

The spacious and light living and dining area opens onto a pergola dining terrace overlooking the pool, which is set in a sunny position surrounded by lawns and colourful flowering shrubs. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, encompassing lawns with shrubs, lavender, oak trees, natural woodland, an orchard and a petanque pitch.  There is a terrace for every ocassion, from breakfast to lunch and dinner. Carefully placed lighting creates a romantic outdoor setting for evening drinks at sunset and a roof terrace above the gym building offers views over the Moustalas forest - this truly is an enchanting place to unwind! 

A stroll through the forest brings you to the village of St Restitut where you will find 2 tennis courts, a bakery for morning croissants and a weekly market. This region has much to offer, from outdoor pursuits such as rock climbing, kayaking and white water rafting available in the stunning Gorges de l'Ardeche to the west, to cycling through the beautiful villages of the Vaucluse to the south. The old chateau at Suze-la-Rousse is now the site of a wine university where wine tasting evenings are held in the summer. Chateau de Grignan, just 10 miles away, hosts many evening theatrical events on its terraces, transporting the spectator back into the 17th century. Visit the Opera at Orange, the Roman amphitheatre in the beautiful medieval market town of Vaison-la-Romaine where music and art festivals are held throughout the summer and, even closer, the lovely village of St Paul-Trois-Chateaux for the weekly market.

‘Stay at Bastide St Restitut’
by: Ms Larkin
The villa and its location were beautiful, the owner most helpful, and a very generous and thoughtful range of food and drink was there for us on arrival, without being requested.
‘ A beautiful villa’
by: Mrs J Fissenden
We thought it was a beautiful villa, very well presented in a stunning and very secluded position. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
‘J Jaskara’
by: J Jaskara
We had a great stay! The location is good: nice little historical towns and a lot of wineries around, naturally. Close to A8 and relatively close to Avignon as well. The villa, the garden, many terraces and pool are all truly wonderful. Very good for just relaxing and some tennis, jogging, biking, table tennis, good food and wine. A couple of good restaurants in walking distance. Everyone was very nice and helpful. Easy to get around. A bit warm to sleep if temperature starts getting over 35 C due to lack of air conditioning.
All villas come equipped with bed linen and towels, cutlery, utensils and usual furnishings required for a self catering rental. All villas have a final clean included (this is a clean that reflects reasonable use of the property).

This is one of my favourite properties, a real gem. The house and the gardens just ooze charm and tranquillity. If you can drag yourself away from this wonderful property go and visit the village of Saint Restitut a few minutes away, it’s full of history from the Romanesque to the Renaissance periods and onwards: just stroll around the narrow streets and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. After that you might feel like some wine tasting at the “cathedral cellars”, an astonishing underground cathedral providing perfect humidity for the “Celliers des Dauphins” wines. A little further away in the village of Saint-Paul-Trois-Chateaux you’ll find a few restaurants: Let Lui (a gastronomic restaurant) and La Chapelle, which offers traditional cuisine, are both situated in the old town, so very romantic.
