Delightful House with a View
What a delightful house! It is beautifully sited on the side of a hill with a wonderful view of the hills. Although the footprint is compact, it is so well designed that it has everything that a couple or family might need: three bedrooms and three baths, an efficient kitchen, comfortable living space, a magnificent covered terrace, pretty garden, and a plunge pool. All of the furnishings and equipment were of excellent quality as was the level of housekeeping. Although we stayed in the house during the summer heat, we were very comfortable thanks to the AC in one room and ceiling fans throughout the house. The owners were responsive to all our questions and we enjoyed meeting Karen and her children who occupied a neighboring house during part of our stay. The local agent, Patrick Marseille, gave us a gracious welcome when we checked in. La Vielle Amie is a gem!
My wife and I spent a week at Vieille Amie in June 2015 and the whole experience could not have been better. The photos on the website did not really do the house justice and we were both delighted with the house, the views and the amazing terrace - where we spent most of the week!!
Maria greeted us on arrival and made us feel very welcome. We really appreciated that she had equipped the kitchen with bread, milk, wine and fresh lemons and basil. That was a wonderful, welcoming touch. The house is well equipped, beautifully appointed, very comfortable and having all rooms opening onto the fabulous terrace is a real bonus. The setting is very quiet and the views of the Dentelles spectacular, especially as the sun sets in the evening. It really was the perfect holiday bolthole for the two of us.
In all, we were so impressed that we are already plotting a return visit for next year and would thoroughly recommend Vieille Amie.
How rewarding it is to know that others have also loved this corner of paradise
Where to start! Thank you Maria for a fabulously relaxing week at Vieille Amie.
Maria could not have been any more welcoming and made us feel at home straight away. The Champagne, wonderful bottle of red and the rosé were all very much appreciated (as were the fresh loaf of bread and basic supplies that helped us enjoy our first night).
The property has clearly been a labour of love. It was spotlessly clean and the layout is fabulous with doors from the lounge and 2 of the bedrooms leading straight out on to the beautiful terrace.
It was extremely well equipped and even had a Nespresso coffee machine similar to mine (heaven!) and the all important Ipod docking station - I couldn't ask for more!
This is easily the best house we have stayed in during our many holidays in France and the view of the surrounding hills are to die for - watching the sun set over the hills was glorious. I am sure that there are many local attractions but we actually only managed to get out a couple of times - once to a market and also to visit the village of La Barroux just over the hill - the house was simply too nice not to be there.
The pool is small but was quite adequate for the 4 of us and my youngest spent much of her time in it!
I would also like to note that I had a problem after I had left because I stupidly lost an item of electrical equipment when I was packing to leave. Maria was most helpful, spending time looking for the item both inside and outside the house, after we had left, in an effort to locate it - thank you Maria it was a pleasure meeting you.
I would highly recommend this property.
The pleasure and satisfaction of our visitors is a reward in itself. It is great to know that others see the beauty in this unspoilt corner of paradise
A Little Slice of Heaven
My friend and I stayed at this beautiful property in May 2014 for 2 weeks. Such a lovely location and from the moment we arrived we truly felt at home. From the eggs, milk, cheese and wine in the fridge to the fresh roses on the table well we couldn't have been made to feel more welcome. The house was immaculate and had everything we could wish for - comfortable beds, 2 great sofas to kick back on to watch TV, a fabulous outdoor dining area (we spent a lot of time sitting outside) and above all it was lovely and peaceful. We hired a car which we used to pick up supplies in nearby towns, however we love to walk and would often walk to the nearest village for a coffee (approx 4.5kms one way). Maria the owner was an absolute delight to deal with and any queries we had were always answered promptly (we were lucky to get to meet Maria the day we were leaving and I have to say she's one of the loveliest, most positive people I've ever met). Yves the caretaker was never far away if we needed anything and was also a delight to deal with. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone wanting a cosy little haven to retreat to after exploring the beautiful surrounds during the day. I will definitely be back. Tracie
What a pleasure it is to know that both the lovely environment and our attention to the details we would like to find ourselves, have given pleasure to others.
Myself and my family can not say enough about this property and the lovely lady who owns it. She was always available if needed [which was not often] but definately respected our privacy. Photos do not do justice to the home. It is decorated tastefully and comfortabley. Everything has been provided. The scent of fresh potted basil greeted us upon our arrival. The terrace is fabulous, providing complete privacy and wonderful view. With it the refreshing pool which is so nice after a long day of sightseeing. The town is intimate, offering nice paths to stroll in the evening, There is also a very nice restaurant with tables set under trees with twinkling lights. I thought that the town would be far from Avignon and the many other towns of provence but in reality it is very convenient with most of our sightseeing from 20 min to an hour away. There is a little larger town very near by that is also very pretty and has a nice grocery store. Our only regret is that we could not stay longer!
It is so very pleasing when others find the same pleasure and delight in the house and this corner of paradise which I myself perceived.
A vila encontra-se no departamento do Vaucluse, na parte conhecida como Le Haut Vaucluse-Provence des Papes (devido à sua proximidade com Avignon e Chateauneuf du Pape - assentos do papado no século 14). Senta-se no pre-Alpes, perto do Gigante da Provença, Mont Ventoux, a maior montanha independente de 1912 metros na França.
A vila olha para o famoso laço como montanhas de pedra calcária, as Dentelles de Montmirail, que atuam como ponto de encontro entre os Alpes e a planície do poderoso rio Ródano.
As colinas em torno de La Roque Alric são cobertas de alecrim selvagem, lavanda e tomilho, carvalhos a cujo pés são encontradas trufas e cogumelos e as culturas dos agricultores locais; oliveiras, árvores frutíferas e vinhas.
Para o amante ao ar livre, há ciclismo, passeios a cavalo, caminhadas e caminhadas, muitos caminhos dedicados, natação (bacia de Beaumes de Venise), tênis (também em Beaumes de Venise), golfe (Avinhão, L'Isle sur La Sorgue ).
