Vaison la Romaine is a wonderful town in the Vaucluse with significant Roman ruins and a fully intact Roman amphitheater. In addition to the main town, there is a separate medieval city located on a hilltop across the river. The modern town has an outdoor market that is famous throughout Provence, and the town square is lively with a wonderful selection of food shops, cafes, and restaurants.

This charming house, one of 2 by the same owner, is located below the medieval cité or Haute Ville in a pleasant, countrified setting with vines beyond it. Most of the rooms have views of open countryside, yet it is a easy walk down into the town center. The owner used to run a well-known B&B nearby and has applied her considerable talent to furnishing and landscaping the house to a charming standard.

The ground floor has a charming open kitchen area with door to the terrace, pool and view. The living room/dining room are one open space with 2 sets of French doors to the terrace and pool. This room has pale blue walls with furnishings in beige. It is quite pretty with lots of personal touches including an interesting series of drawings of jazz musicians. There is one bedroom on the ground floor which has a queen bed, door to the patio and an ensuite shower and sink. There is a separate toilet and sink by the entry.

Upstairs are two bedrooms. One bedroom has a queen bed. Across the hall is a bathroom with bathtub, hand shower and two sinks. The other bedroom has 2 single beds and ensuite shower and sink. There is a separate toilet.

The patio off the back of the house has shaded and sunny seating. The view is lovely. The pool is open April 1 to October 30, but is not heated.

A path leads to the other property by the same owner. Visit PR004 to see that description. However, if rented separately, there is excellent privacy.
