An ideal backdrop for a French 70s movie about a great family gathering. The setting is superb, and the pool unusual (55m long!) and of the clearest natural water. The area is quite a discovery with easy access to the foothills of the Alps to the east and Provence to the south.
This Tuscan style villa is located in a picturesque area just north of Provence, 19km from the motorway exit at Montélimar-Sud, and just 1km from the beautiful village of Grignan with all shops and services, a Tuesday market, and a good selection of restaurants. The Château at Grignan, once home to the Marquise de Sévigné, is well worth a visit and hosts plays and concerts during the summer. Tennis courts and horse riding can be found at Grignan.
The small historic town of Valréas (11km) is well worth exploring - it offers all shops and services, most sports facilities including a leisure lake with pedaloes, swimming, and fishing, and beautiful monuments. There is an 18 hole golf course 21km away at Montboucher-sur-Jabron and a 9 hole golf course at Clansayes (15km), and a leisure lake for swimming at Bollène (29km). Wonderful summer festivals thrive in Orange, Aix and Avignon, all easily accessible via motorway.
