The
Experience

You’re on the outskirts of a little hillside village with narrow streets; views soar over lavender fields, vineyards and wooded hills. Your beautifully restored barn has its own entrance and sits opposite the farmhouse where charming Caroline and talented Olivier have their home. Walk in to a huge space with concrete floors in a warm grey, an eclectic mix of furniture, quirky lamps, a wood-burner and plenty of seating. The dining room has a table big enough for all the family, the kitchen will delight even serious cooks, although you can be cooked for if you prefer. Upstairs to stylish, comfortable bedrooms with tip-top latex mattresses, crisp cotton sheets and the lightest of feather duvets; those on the second floor are liberally beamed. Bathrooms have Italian-style showers and gleaming tiles. Disaffected teenagers or those seeking a spot of peace will prefer the duplex which is just for two. Explore many quaint villages on foot or by bike (you can hire them here and Olivier is happy to guide or propose routes), quaff local wines and visit food markets, walk to Barjac in an hour.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Caroline Girault de Burlet

  • The Maison Papillons is situated in the hamlet of Monteil, 2 minutes drive from the village of Montclus recognised as ‘one of the most beautiful villages of France’.
  • 5 minutes from the property lies the Aven Orgnac recently classified as Grand Site de l’Aven Orgnac. It is one of the most impressive cave systems in Europe! Its museum of prehistory, interactive and educational, delights old and young alike.
  • This region has something for everyone! From the picturesque, listed villages, the caves holding geological and human treasures, the fabulous bustling street markets, the festivals, walks in the unspoiled countryside to swimming in the local river!
  • Barjac; charming French village is the nearest commercial centre has a fantastic weekly market. At Easter and in August, Barjac is the focus of attention as it holds its international brocante (antique and second hand market).
  • Just 25 minutes drive away, you can discover the famous Caverne du Pont d’Arc, listed as a Unesco World Heritage site. The cave boasts the oldest cave paintings, 34,000BC, in the world. A replica has recently been completed by artists and scientists.
  • A little further a field, you may like to visit the fabulous medieval town of Uzès. Avignon is not only famous for its annual festival but also its beautiful historic buildings and monuments, such as “Le Pont d’Avignon” and the Bishops Palace.
