Malaucène is located in Vaucluse, on the limit of the Drome department, at a surprising altitude of 350m. This means beautiful, breezy weather in summer. Rent your holiday house with a private swimming pool and enjoy great weather and fabulous views. Cyclists and hikers would probably know this town better than others, as the village is at the foot of the Mont Ventoux, a prize climb for any cyclist or hiker. Malaucène is the recommended spot to start off from to discover the Parc Naturel Régional du Mont Ventoux, which is a natural regional and protected site, with all the fauna and flora that it entails. This place is all about nature so if that’s your thing, keep reading!
The village itself is medieval, offering the charming ruins of a former fortress. Narrow streets of course, traditional houses, and a sense that time has stopped around certain corners of this town. The best of both worlds, go back to your holiday house and relax with all its modern fittings.
The market is one of the oldest in Provence. Would you believe that they have had their local market for the past seven centuries? Wrap your head around that... seven hundred years later and we can still enjoy this weekly tradition, every single Wednesday.
If we say tradition and markets and nature, then we’re obviously looking at great restaurants. Too many to list for such a small village, but browse around any reputable guide, or simply stroll around town till the fragrances tickle your tastebuds. Bon appétit!
The Gorges of Toulourenc are a fabulous place to spend the day. Hiking, bathing in the little sandy beaches along the riverbanks, waterfalls at the Source du Groseau, there are endless activities to keep everyone entertained. Relax in your holiday house after that!
Another fascinating element of nature here is the Dentelles de Montmirail. How lovely is that, calling a mountain chain “lace”. Another place to go hiking or cycling, with fabulous views of course, this jagged mountain chain is simply beautiful.
The Parc Spirou is an adventure park that will thrill your entire party, young and less young, and it will be a treat to have a day out, splashing around for some extra summer fun. I think it’s safe to say that after that, relaxing in your holiday house by your swimming pool will be the perfect way to end the day.
Le Village des Enfants is another great place to take your children, but prepare your day in advance because there is plenty to do: adventure trails, a petting zoo, tree climbing, waterworks, a mini-jungle... I won’t list it all, but I do promise a fabulous day out! Again, doesn’t a barbecue and a glass of wine sound delightful after that! Your holiday house with your private swimming pool will be waiting.
Le Col de la Chaine will be another challenge for serious cyclists and hikers, and this is a magnificent path that will offer you fantastic views as well. Get over your efforts at the end of an exerting day and take a swim at sunset in your private swimming pool.
Malaucène is also close to important historical and cultural cities such as Vaison-la-Romaine and Carpentras, which you can enjoy for a day. If you are looking for other options, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us, and we will find the perfect holiday home, tailor-made for your needs.
