Meet The Giant of the Provence!

Rent a holiday home here in the region of Vaison La Romaine between the vineyards and beautiful villages. Here, you will encounter the Giant of the Provence, also known as the Bald Mountain or as the gem of the Vaucluse, reaching higher than its surroundings.

The famous Mont Ventoux is the pride of the local population and of the many people who have a holiday home in the France. Vaison la Romaine is known for being on the “Plus Beaux Détours de France” list, which means it is one of the most worthwhile places to visit in France. Quite right if you ask us, when you consider the beautiful natural phenomenon that is Mont Ventoux.

From your holiday home, the mountain can be discovered by foot or cycling. Even the most prepared cyclists see a challenge in the steep trails Mont Ventoux is known for.

If you are renting a holiday home in the Provence in the area of Mont Ventoux, the amazing panoramic views on the Provence and the unique flora and fauna of the Vaucluse. At the foot of the mountain there’s Comtat Venaissin on the one side and Carpentras, the Valley of Toulourenc and Val de Sault on the other side. Both sides offer traditionally French products: Comtat Venaissin has many vineyards and truffle farms, adjacent to the strawberries of Carpentras and the lavender fields of Val de Sault. The diversity is breathtaking.

When following the path of the Giant of the Provence, the landscape becomes rocky. Once you have reached the top, you will be able witness a beautiful view over the Camargue, the Lubéron and the Alpilles. Maybe you will see your holiday home from up there! When the sky is clear the Alps, the Cévennes and the Mediterranean Sea become visible as well.

The origin of the name Mont Ventoux is said to stem from ‘windy mountain’ in French. They are not wrong because if you have bad luck, the wind will make the climb up pretty hard. The reward you will find on the top, however, is worth every drop of sweat.

You can start the climb from Bédoin, Malaucène or Sault. Although Mont Ventoux is a known resort amongst athletes, the top is accessible by car as well so everyone can reach the top.

Go hiking in the Monti Sibillini National Park!

Are you planning on renting a holiday home in Le Marche, Italy? We would love to introduce to you the best natural zone in the area. The national park Monti Sibillini is a part of the Apennine Mountains en just a formidable part of Italy. It is one of the smaller parks in Europe but it is definitely not inferior in terms of beauty, culture and diversity.

The wonderful valleys, dozens of mountain peaks and ancient villages offer everything an experienced hiker could wish for. Novice hikers will find their liking as well at Monte Sibilla because it is very accessible.

During peak season our Italian colleagues organize weekly fun mountain hikes to Monte Sibilla. Leave your peaceful holiday home with swimming pool in Le Marche behind for a day because we’re leaving at 8:30 am from Rifugio Sibilla. An experienced English speaking guide takes us into the mountains. During the walk you can ask every question you have about the fauna, flora and the history of the Monti Sibillini national park.

The mountainous landscape and vast fields make the walk extremely beautiful. While walking, you will see mystical panoramic sights over Gran Sasso, Monti della Laga and if you’re lucky the Majella as well.

Another highlight in the mountain range are the plateaus, most importantly the Piano Grande. In June the plateau is colored yellow and red because of the blossoming flowers. The landscape turns into a colourful sea of flowers.

Monte Vettore has the highest peak of the landscape and is a fun challenge for hikers. From the peak you can see the Terminillo and the coast of Le Marche.

Are you ready to experience the beautiful walk through National Park Monti Sibillini with your own feet and senses? Rent a holiday home in Le Marche and put on your hiking shoes!
