Villa in Provence with pool: Bastide St Restitut is a charming 16th century property just outside the delightful medieval hilltop village of St Restitut on the Drome-Vaucluse borders, an area of vineyards, lavender fields, fruit orchards and truffles. Once a simple bergerie, it has been luxuriously renovated and furnished and the grounds provide a wonderfully tranquil setting encompassing woodland, orchard and garden. Carefully placed lighting creates a most romantic outdoor setting for evening drinks as the sun sets behind the hills- truly a place to unwind!
It has a kitchen with outdoor dining terrace.

Villas in Provence in this region in particular have much to offer, from outdoor pursuits such as rock climbing, kayaking and white water rafting available in the stunning Gorges de l' Ardeche to the west, to cycling through the beautiful villages of the Vaucluse to the south. The old chateau at Suze-la-Rousse is now the site of a wine university where wine tasting evenings are held in the summer. Chateau de Grignan, just 10 miles away, hosts many evening theatrical events on its terraces, transporting the spectator back into the 17th century.
From this villa in Provence it is easy to visit the Opera at Orange, the Roman amphitheatre in the beautiful medieval market town of Vaison-la-Romaine where music and art festivals are held throughout the summer and, even closer, the lovely village of St Paul-Trois-Chateaux for the weekly market. This is one of our villas in Provence that we recommend as an idyllic base from which to explore the whole region.
