Situated at the foot of Mont Ventoux, in a beautiful wine and fruit growing area, Villa St Isabelle is a beautiful 2 bedroom gite, making it ideal for 4 people.
One of the advantages of this place is the fantastic location. It's only 1.5 miles to the village, yet you are surrounded by a typical Provencal countryside.
You've got a fruit farm and vineyards on your doorstep (the rest of the owners land surrounding the villa is given over to agriculture) with some great towns and villages easily accessible for daily excursions.
This gite is one of four properties on the same site. As well as having their own private space, all the villas share the large swimming pool and the great communal facilities.
Living room: The spacious living area is very well equipped with a dining table and chairs, sofas, a coffee table, satellite TV and a CD player.
Kitchen: The kitchen is very well equipped with a fridge and freezer, oven, ceramic hob stove, dishwasher and microwave. There is also a washing machine should you feel the need to do any holiday laundry!

There’s also a BBQ if you fancy taking full advantage of the long evenings!
Swimming pool: The property shares a gated, heated (from 1 May to 30 September) communal pool with three other villas. At 14m x 7m, it’s easily big enough to allow everyone to take a refreshing dip during the warm summers, or simply lounge about on the supplied furniture taking in the sun.

About the local area
Villa St Isabelle is only 1.5 miles from the village of Malaucene where you will find plenty of small local shops and restaurants.
If you like to explore the local Provencal markets, you’ll be spoilt for choice! Many of the towns and villages in the area are well known for the excellent Paysan Markets where you will find local produce, grown and sold by some real characters!
The local landscape is dominated by vineyards, country roads and quaint villages, all gently basking in the Provencal sunshine.
Overlooking this vista is the giant of Mont Ventoux. This is a 2000m summit that is famous for the challenge it poses to serious cyclists. If you are in the car, it also makes for a great day out with stunning views on a clear day! (Have a look at our Cycling in Provence pages here for more information about Mont Ventoux)
With good restaurants in abundance in this area, it’s not difficult to spoil yourself – holidays aren’t for dieting!
If you like a tipple, a well-trodden wine route starts at the door of your Villa. Vaqueras, Gigondas, Cotes du Ventoux and Cahteauneuf du Pape are all well known great wines of the region and are all within a thirty minute drive (Just make sure you have decided who’s driving back!)
If you are feeling a bit sporty, cycling, walking, rock climbing, horseriding, golf, canoeing and even Paragliding can all be found within 20kms of the village.
Further a field but within easy reach, you have the attractions of some of the South of France’s best known towns: Avignon and Orange are just 30 minutes away and Aix en Provence, Marseille and the Carmargue National Park are all under an hours drive.
