About us

We have lived and worked in France for more than 15 years.

The Mont Ventoux region is no stranger to us. Until now it was our favorite region to spend the holidays. We are avid nature lovers and love sports (cycling, jogging, walking).

It was a logical step to settle here permanently when we got the chance to do so. That happened in early 2019.

It was love at first sight when we found the 2 adjacent houses on the "pas du Voltigeur".

Le 'Soleil du Ventoux'  is an independent house with private garden and swimming pool.

The 'Voltigeur du Ventoux' is the bottom floor of the house we live in. The living area is completely private (with its own entrance). 

With our gîtes we want everyone to enjoy this breathtaking landscape and fascinating region.


See you very soon!

Activities

Sports

When you say Ventoux, you immediately think of cycling. But there is much more than climbing the giant of Provence. Just think of the gorges de la Nesque and the gorges of the Toulerenc, les Dentelles de Montmirailles and the Baronnies. Our gite is located on the famous mountain bike trail of the Vaucluse. You can exercise your calf muscles here in every season of the year. But hikers, joggers and trail runners also get their money's worth here. Plenty of choice for day trips or shorter distances. A 10-minute walk takes you to the natural climbing wall of the gorges des 3Rivières. By car you are 15 minutes on the cliffs of St Légér du Ventoux and Buis les Baronnies, an adrenaline rush guaranteed! Horse riding is possible during the summer months in the Ranch of les 3 Rivières, again within walking distance of our gite. Or in Vaison la Romaine in le Palis. Paddle or fish in the Ouvèze or the Toulourenc on foot 1.5 km away

Gastronomy and wine

In addition, Entrechaux has 4 beautiful wine estates, each of which is worth visiting for a 'degustation'; Oncle Ernest (organic wines), Champ-Long, Talès, Le Mas Flauzières. Those who want to taste more wines are spoiled for choice, just to name a few; Vaison la Romaine, Gigondas, Vacqueras, Beaume de Venise, and of course Chateauneuf du Pape.

Every day of the week there is a provencal market in some neighboring village with local products and artisan objects. On Wednesday morning in Malaucène, on Tuesday and Saturday morning in Vaison-La-Romaine. During the winter period, the truffle market in Richerenches and the olive market in Nyons are recommended.

Culture

If you prefer culture, dive into history with a visit to the Gallor Roman excavations at Vaison la Romaine. Or go to Orange with its beautiful amphitheater. Not to mention Avignon with its festival and rich history.

Kids

For the kids, the adventure park 'Parc Avonture Oxygene' in Vaison la Romaine is certainly worthwhile. Or why not experience a day of crazy water fun at Wave Island in Avignon, or would you rather opt for the Spirou theme park, just next to the Wave island?


This list is not exhaustive. We speak 4 languages ​​(Nl, Fr, Eng, German) and are happy to provide tips and help with planning excursions and activities in the area on request.
