The village is surrounded by sun drenched Provencal countryside including lavender fields, vineyards and truffle trees with magnificent views in all directions including one of Mont Ventoux.The Truffle Gite sleeps two ( it is possible to accommodate four guests with the addition of the Blue bedroom at an additional charge). When we came to do the conversion of this large barn we decided we did not want to lose the open plan feel of these spacious area and so the bed is open plan to the living area. This spacious gite has wooden floors, stone walls and a beamed ceiling. It has a large kitchen and 2 bathrooms, both with a shower, and one with a luxurious French bath (takes two!). The Truffle Gite has its own patio, large private garden with outside eating area, with outside table, chairs and parasol, BBQ & hammock. Entertainment is provided by a television with British satellite reception. There is also Bluetooth speaker and DVD player.The Truffle Gite comes complete with a full kitchen including fridge-freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, gas oven and hobs. All cutlery, crockery, glassware, bedding and towels (both pool and house) are provided within the rental cost. The local village is just a 3 minute stroll away and there you will find the 'Tour de Chamaret' a medieval watch tower built to warn the fortified 'Chateau de Grignan' of unwelcome guests. Nowadays the village is more accommodating to visitors and boasts a bar, boulangerie, fruit & vegetable stall and post office.In the local area the stunning Chateau de Grignan dominates the view, with its narrow streets, high walls and monastery, all of which are open to the public. Gringan has a lively artistic colony with many galleries and workshops in its narrow twisting lanes. The Roman amphitheatre in the town of Orange and the famous 'Pont d' Avignon' are all within an hour's drive of the Bastide des Launes. Further afield but within the reach of a day trip are the beaches of the Mediterranean, the famous Roman aqueduct 'Le Pont du Gard' and the spectacular villages of Gordes and Roussillon..We are in the middle of the Rhone wine area, and some of France's finest vineyards are within easy reach, with Hermitage, Crozes Hermitage, Cornas and St Joseph just an hour North of here, and Chateauneuf du Pape, Vacqueyras and Gigondas half that time, to the south. In addition there are several award winning vineyards within a few minutes drive of the Bastide and we will be pleased to point you in their direction.Enjoy your holiday by visiting some of the weekly markets, potteries and art galleries and, during the summer, various open-air festivals. Avignon and Carpentras both have festivals for most of July. Go riding at the local stables, play golf at 2 nearby courses, watch the wildlife in the local woods/river, or you could just laze by the side of our large swimming pool. We service the pool and clean the surrounding terraces each day. We are always available in case of any issues that arise as we reside in the Bastide. The area is also excellent for walking, although this is more an activity that suits the weather in May or September/October. The nearest airports are: Nimes, Marseille, Avignon, Montpellier, Grenoble & Lyon. There is a direct Eurostar train to Avignon from London during the summer months. Avignon can also be reached from Exeter/Southampton/Leeds Bradford airports in the summer months. WiFi is available throughout La Bastide.More
