Domaine du Crestet

6 Carefully Styled Vacation Houses in a Wine Estate in Provence with Swimming Pool & Tennis

Domaine du Crestet is an old wine estate located in Provence, 35 km east of the Rhone River and 3 km south of the old roman town Vaison-la-Romaine, see www.vaison-ventoux-tourisme.com/, which is a nice little Provencal town with multiple shops and restaurants, a roman amphi theatre and well known archaeological sites.

It consists of 4 provence-style buildings situated around a central court, in the middle of the vineyards with non-obstructed staggering views to all sides, including the Mont Ventoux and the mediaeval village of Crestet. In three of the buildings six carefully styled vacation houses are created that are aimed at providing the guests a high level of luxury in a authentic Provencal setting with 50 cm thick stone walls, roman tiles and exposed beamed ceilings.

Each of the houses has a private entrance, terrace with bbq and sun awning, a garden facing the vineyard, a comfortable living room with fireplace (except Cinsault), a "chef-proof" kitchen including refrigerator, freezer, 4 gas burners, oven/grill/microwave, coffeemaker, water cooker, mixer, etc. Furthermore they have central heating and 1 or 2 bathrooms and 2, 3 or 4 bedrooms with high quality beds.

You will also find in every house a washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, an iron, a satellite TV, DVD player, and radio/CD stereo set, as well as a WIFI internet connection.
