Provence,



Provence, France

A land of light, warmth and beauty, Provence awakens all the
senses – the scent of purple lavender and bright yellow mimosa,
the sound of cicadas in the fragrant pine trees, the taste of fresh
melon and a chilled glass of rosé, and the luxurious warmth of the summer sun on your back.

This beautiful region, in south-east France, has been divided into six different ‘départements’, each with its own unique feel and landscape, all offering an irresistible chance to experience Provençal life.

The majority of our properties are to be found in the Vaucluse, a picturesque area of diverse beauty ranging from cultivated vineyards and medieval villages, to deep river canyons and ochre coloured cliffs.

Vaison la Romaine at the northern end of the Vaucluse straddles the River Ouvèze and will enchant anyone with a love of history. Rarely do you find a town that offers such a complete picture spanning many centuries.

Country lanes take you into its hinterland, a soft and gentle area known as the Drôme Provençale, that borders the edge of the Drôme. Olive groves, vineyards and pretty stone hamlets lie in the valleys before you reach the Baronnies hills and the Toulourenc Valley.

To the south of Vaison la Romaine the hills rise up to become the Dentelles de Montmirail. The name comes from the unique outline of the pale limestone peaks, ‘dentelle’ meaning lace.Nestling in the pine and oak clad flanks are enchanting villages surrounded by vineyards, noted for their excellent wines.

The Dentelles de Montmirail are the final foothills before reaching the Giant of Provence, or to give it its proper name, Mont Ventoux. It is the highest peak between the Alps and the Pyrenees, rising from the Vaucluse plateau.

The largest of these clusters is Avignon, capital of the Vaucluse. Lying on the banks of the river Rhône.
