Provence holiday country cottage – This charming stone built country cottage is nestled in the hilly landscape of the Cote du Rhone vineyards, in the heart of Provence. Mas de la Fontaine has all the character and cosy feeling you might expect from a Provencal country property of this size, including an open fireplace, beamed ceilings and stone walls. The mature garden is large and well maintained, with flower beds, rose bushes, and romantic corners among the trees. From the pool guests can enjoy dramatic views over the surrounding sweeping hills and valley, anticipating the pleasure of a Muscat wine tasting trip to the famous cellars in Beaumes de Venise, or the exquisite olive oil and aromatic biscuits that can be found on the stalls at the Friday morning market.
The lively town of Carpentras, a few miles away from the villa, also boasts a colourful weekly market whose traditions date back to the Antiquity, when the Greeks used to buy wheat, sheep and honey from this region! Today you are more likely to see black truffles, olive oil, honey, scented soaps and other local Provencal produce. Remains of Romanesque chapels, medieval ramparts and ruined castles, prehistoric caves and mills populate the landscape of this part of Provence, adding to the charm of the region. For an active holiday all sorts of outdoor sports ranging from horse riding, cycling, trekking, tennis, golf are available just a few minute drive from your charming holiday cottage.
