Property Details:

Magnificent views of the Dentelles de Montmirail, the Mont Ventoux, the Lance and the Forest of Uchaux, with the Alps in the distance. 360° of tranquility and exceptional beauty, completely private and not overlooked. The house is surrounded by vineyards and, according to the season, fields of sunflowers or wheat, whose bright yellow is complemented by the red of poppies, just as the rustic bread from the village bakeries is complemented by the local wines, of excellent quality, but not expensive. A countryside location, yet only 1.5 km from local shops and doctor’s surgery, and 4km from the supermarket. In the centre of the village, 1.5 km away, is an excellent small primary school. The secondary school is in the village beyond, and the lycée at 12km.

The central part of the house was built in 1977 of insulating red bricks. Extended to the western side in 2006, it now consists of : large, bright fully-equipped kitchen, large L-shaped living room with Godin wood-burning stove and internet connection, 4 bedrooms, 5th bedroom/office, bathroom, WC, double-glazed veranda, secure storage room, large south-facing terrace with trees and stone-built barbecue. Modern low-consommation dry heat-accumulation inertia radiators installed in 2015 heat the house. Double glazing to all rooms except two south-facing bedrooms. Loft insulation renewed in 2017. Large new septic tank installed in 2016, and solar panels feeding the national grid and yielding a profit of 2,200€ per year. Outside the main house is parking for at least 3 vehicles, and for another 3/4 vehicles outside the independent apartment.

The apartment, an eastward extension, attached but with its own private entrance, was built in 2016 to a high specification, and consists of : large living space incorporating fully-equipped kitchen area with french windows opening onto a small south-facing garden, 2 bedrooms, modern shower room with basin and WC. Eco-friendly electric heating and insulation. Ideal for family members, for long-term letting at minimum 600€ per month, or for holiday lettings (gîte / Airbnb at approximately 500€ per week).

The property is easy to access, the A7 motorway junction being only 10 minutes away. A wide choice of shops and shopping precincts, hospital and a main-line railway station (TGV Paris, Lyon, Marseille, Nice, Barcelona) are situated within a 15 minute drive. International airports are at Avignon (40 minutes by car), Nîmes (50 minutes), Marseille (1h15), Lyon (less than 2 hours). Drive to the Côte d’Azur in 1h30, and the Alps in less than 3h. Paris is 2h30 by TGV. Drive for 5 minutes in any direction and you will find tourist destinations, historic buildings, villages, towns and landscapes; the entire region is richly endowed with sites of international reputation, and the summer season hosts innumerable festivals and events : musical, artistic, theatrical, folklore, food and drink, and much more.

Many lovely countryside walks and footpaths are accessible directly from the house. And in May, the nightingales come and sing every evening ! At night, throughout the year, the stars shine extra brightly, thanks to the relative lack of light pollution. And the sun ... who, especially in Provence, knows how to bring out the richness of the colours which inspired Van Gogh, Monet, Cézanne and so many others.

Some rooms in the main part of the house would benefit from decorative refreshing, but the house is ready to be moved into at once. The fenced garden and the vineyard offer unlimited possibilities for landscaping, keeping animals, fruit and vegetable growing - or just swimming, sunbathing and dining al fresco !

Truly, this is a very special place. We are leaving with many regrets, after sixteen wonderful years : our children are now settled in England, and we are beginning to find that, with age, travelling to and fro is not as easy as it was.

We encourage you to come and see this very special place : perhaps the house is just waiting to become YOUR home in Provence !
