Villa Theophile - An 8 bedroom Chateau - Sleeps up to 12

Beautiful chateau with private pool in a magnificent setting. Recently renovated throughout, with eight bedrooms, six bathrooms and vast living spaces indoors and out, this is the perfect place for family and friends to share a memorable holiday, enjoy time together and explore the area.

Set in woodland with stunning views from every window, the vineyards of Gigondas, Vacqueyras and Beaumes de Venise encircle the chateau. This property and its lovely gardens have plenty of space for large groups of family or friends to have fun together. The property is not overlooked and enjoys complete privacy. The house has been renovated to a high standard and is just waiting to be enjoyed. The pool terrace and barbecue are always favourites and there are shady, and sunny spots all around the garden, inviting a pause to enjoy the view.

The village of Vacqueyras is exactly a mile away, with a baker, butcher, pharmacy, newsagent, greengrocer, small weekly market and two great restaurants. For wine-lovers, the local vignerons of the Cotes du Rhone Villages are waiting to offer you a tasting of their fine wines.

Perfect for those who like to stay in one place and relax for a change on holiday. The new TGV rail service direct from London to Avignon (three times a week in May and June, five times a week in high summer) has just made getting to this part of Provence even easier.

And for those who like to get out and about a bit more, the vast provencal markets of Vaison la Romaine and Carpentras are a great way to spend a morning shopping for produce and souvenirs. There are no fewer than three Unesco World Heritage Sites - The Pont du Gard, the Roman Amphitheatre in Orange, and the Palais des Papes in Avignon - within an hour's drive. And in summer, the festivals of Avignon (theatre and comedy), Orange (music) and Vaison (dance) are not to be missed. There are many other magnificent sights to see in Provence and lots more information available in the Villa Theophile welcome book.
