An enchanting old house at the heart of the medieval village of Valaurie, Maison Guillaume has been fully renovated to combine rustic Provencal charm and tranquillity with great comfort. It sleeps 12, including two studio flats accessed separately from the garden, with a large heated pool, garden, terrace and well-established orchard of mature olive, pomegranate and fig trees. There are sweeping views across the valley to the lavender fields, vineyards and oak forests of the Drome and the only sound in the morning will be the chiming of the bells of the Romanesque church.
20 minutes drive south from Montelimar and 50 minutes from Valence, Maison Guillaume has excellent access from the UK by both TGV and air. The great Provencal cities of Avignon, Nimes and Orange are all within an hour’s drive and the wonderful undiscovered chateaux and villages of the unspoilt Drome are all close by.
All groceries can be bought within a few minutes drive; there are traditional Provencal food markets in all the surrounding towns and there is a small but excellent bistrot in the village, with several exceptional restaurants within a few minutes drive.
There is a tennis court 1 km away (we have 4 raquets) and a pretty golf course 3 km away. Lovely walks and cycling.
