Ochre Orchard in Vaucluse, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur
Self-Catering Villa Vaucluse
From: €200 nightly 3
Ochre Orchard Self-Catering
Beautifully rustic and full of Provençal charm, this rural villa is the perfect spot to explore the French countryside if you’re looking for tranquillity and calm. Situated just outside the village of Gargas, enjoy wandering through cobblestone streets lined with ochre stone buildings and visit the 16th century church. The area is known for its ochre quarries and striking red cliffs, and this can best be appreciated with a visit to Roussillon - named one of France’s most beautiful villages - which is just a mere four kilometres away. The home blends into the landscape with its terracotta roof, pale stone walls and garden with blossoming flowers and lush greenery, perfect for alfresco dining on the terrace as the sun peers through the surrounding trees. Spend lazy afternoons by the glistening pool, and if the sun gets to be too much, the veranda shaded by a canopy of branches is a great spot for a cool glass of rosé. Inside, the light interior is warm and welcoming with traditional features, exposed beams, an open-hearth fireplace for the cooler months and air-conditioning in most rooms. If you feel like getting active or heading on a day trip, there’s an array of scenic cycling paths and hiking trails nearby as well as an abundance of other notable sights including the villages of Joucas and Gordes and the Luberon Regional Nature Park.
