The
Experience

A seriously seductive and peaceful spot: a handsome house in large grounds with olive groves, mulberry-shaded areas for outdoor living, and a heated saltwater pool. It’s on the edge of a small village (with excellent restaurant) and has fabulous views all around: Mont Ventoux to the north, Malemort and Venasque to the south. There are good walks and cycling from the door – you don’t have to tackle Mont Ventoux; food and antique markets, vineyards and Roman towns to visit. English owners know the area inside out and provide excellent info. Their tasteful renovation of the house has a Provençale-meets-English country house feel, in more and less formal spaces: beamed ceilings, apparent stone walls, an open fire; Peter Jones beds, family furniture, portraits and botanical prints. And there’s a fabulous, conservatory-style, real cook’s kitchen with a painted, rustic dining table. Bathrooms are bright and modern; bedrooms simply stylish and spacious, in restful colours – one’s lofty, up steep wooden stairs. The separate master suite has its own stairway and enviable roof terrace. Kindly Hubert greets guests and tends the garden.

Local points of interest from Serena White

  • La Roque is on the edge of a stunning medieval village with panoramic views of Mont Ventoux. The main square is 5 minutes walk from La Roque with a medieval church and small restaurant/cafe, open seven days a week.Perfect for drinks or a three course meal
  • So many markets! On Friday you have Carpentras, the largest in the region. On Sunday visit the Isle sur la Sorgue antique market, world renowned. Enjoy an aperitif at the evening market in Venasque (often seen in top 100 most beautiful villages in France).
  • This is a cyclists paradise! Whether you are an elite cyclist keen to tackle Mont Ventoux or would prefer to rent an electric bike which will do some of the work for you, there is something for everyone. It is the best way to enjoy the stunning scenery.
  • You are surrounded by vineyards wherever you look. If you love your wine why not visit one of the many famous vineyards within each reach. You have Beaumes de Venise, Vacqueyras, Gigondas, Chateauneuf-du-Pape to name but a few, All on your doorstep.
  • For those who love sightseeing you are spoilt for choice. You have the Roman amphitheatre in Orange 30 min away. Vaison-la-Romaine, famous for its Roman ruins. See the Pont Du Gard whilst canoeing along the Ardeche or visit the Palace du Pape in Avignon.
  • Or perhaps you would just prefer to relax in the countryside with a good book. La Roque has its own olive grove and is surrounded by 2 hectares of stunning countryside overlooking a beautiful monastery. Perfect for those wanting to get away from it all!
