You can go back in time here – the landscape is wild and unchanged for hundreds of years. The house is a treasure of original features and the grounds just fabulous.
This picturesque secluded stone sheepfold ("bergerie") is located 3.5km from the small village of Savoillan (bakery) and 7km from the beautiful village of Montbrun-les-Bains where all shops, an internet café, tennis courts and horse riding facilities can be found. Montbrun-les-Bains is classified as one of the most beautiful villages of France.
The area is full of picturesque sites such as Mont Ventoux, the Gorges du Nesque, the Montagne du Buc and the Dentelles de Montmirail. Many places are worth visiting nearby such as Le Château d'Aulan, l'Abbaye de Sénanque, and many romanesque churches. There are dozens of charming hilltop villages close by tucked away in the hilly countryside. Lavender fields, apricot and olive orchards, and pine and oak forests abound.
The Toulourenc River runs along the edge of the property and there are many gorges to be explored along its course. It is well worth visiting the unusual village of Brantes (5km) with its old streets facing Mont Ventoux as well as the market at Sault (16km), known for its lavender honey nougat. There are many interesting towns within easy reach: Avignon (74km), Carpentras (48km) and Vaison-la-Romaine (31km).
There are beautiful mid-mountain walks close by. You can climb the north face of Mont-Ventoux at night and admire the sunrise over the Alps in the early morning or walk downstream along the Toulourenc River through its magnificent gorges.
