In a quiet back street of a charmingly intact village, this town house is full of character, and surprises you with its lovely secluded garden.
This charming 19th century house nestles in the heart of the sleepy village of Caderousse, a stone’s throw from the Rhône River, 6km south of the ancient Roman town of Orange, in the Vaucluse, an area rich in marvellous scenery and colourful history. The papal town of Avignon is 25km away, and the impressive Roman aqueduct at Pont du Gard is also within an easy drive. Excursions into the beautiful hillsides of the Luberon and the upper Vaucluse, as well as to the delightful villages that dot the landscape, are easily undertaken from here.
Caderousse dates back to the 11th century, and retains a bit of timeless tranquillity. It is ringed by imposing ramparts, built in 1856 to hold back the rising floodwaters of the Rhône which had occasionally engulfed the village in the 18th and 19th centuries; the 3-metre wide walkway along the top offers a delightful perambulation around Caderousse. There are a couple of boulangeries in the village, several cafés, and a minimart, but for a supermarket you must travel to Orange (6km), where there is also a weekly market on Thursdays. The village tennis court has seen better days, but there are 4 new courts nearby outside the walls which can be booked at the Mairie. Horse riding can be found nearby; a golf course is within 25 km, and the wide range of summer festivals in the area has something for everyone.
