- Description of the land
- The location is unique. The property is situated on the edge of the urban area of a provencal village and thus benefits from a stunning free view on the surrounding hills, the Mont Ventoux and the Côtes du Rhône vineyards. On the other side the sand hills protect the place from northern wind.
- And of course there is also the view on the Provencal village.
- This particular area of the Drôme Provençale benefits from a micro-climate, which gives a lot of sunshine, protection from the mistral wind and beautiful summer evenings.
- On the premises, some wells are used for the garden and the pool.
- The 2005-built property as a whole is very well fitted in the landscape.
- The pool
The pool (70m²) has a marvellous view on the country side. It was constructed in 2005 and has a technically sound desinfection system. It is heated by sunlight, the average water temperature can reach 25 degrees in July-August. Evening bathing is possible as there is underwater lighting.
- The garden
The garden, laid out and kept by professionals, has grown beautifully, offering shadowy and sunny places.
- Ground floor
- Our tour through the property starts by the porch of the main house and then the entrance hall (8,5m²), which is spacious and high. It is lit by a velux window in the roof, whereas the wooden floor immediately gives a cosy ambiance.
- On the left hand side, the living (42m²) has also a wooden floor and an open fire place. The 3 glassdoors all open to the terraces, covered and semi-covered, on south east and south. The heating in this room is special: no convectors on the walls but under the floor to be able to save space and have the doors wide open whenever you like.
- The kitchen (>20m²), all equipped, with tiles on the floor, has 2 windows (on north and east) and 1 door to the terrace on the south.
- Then we get into the cellar (>10m²), which has another door leading outside, a window and tiles on the floor.
- Back in the central entrance hall, we walk into a corridor, the 3-bedroom section, leading to, on the right hand side, the first bedroom (12m²) on north-east, with wooden floor and 2 windows, and a second bedroom (>16m² with small dressing) on north-west, with carpetfloor and 2 windows. At the end of the corridor is a separate toilet with basin and tiles on the floor. At the left hand side of the corridor is the bathroom (>9m²) with a large bathtub, a shower, double wash basin, 2 windows and tiles. And the last room here is an office, which can also be used as a bedroom (almost 15m²), on south-east, with doors to a terrace, views upon the Mont Ventoux and having a wooden floor again.
All essential rooms are on the ground floor, with a big parking outside.
- The first floor
- On the first floor, accessible by wooden stairs, we enter by a library room (25m²), which can be used as a bedroom, with 2 windows, one on south-east and one on the south, and again tiles on the floor. The wooden beams under the ceiling give a cosy ambiance here.
- The next communicating room is a bedroom (almost 16m²) where a shower and double wash basin have been put in place, to serve as a guestroom or an AirBnB potential. It has 2 windows, on north-east and east, tiles on the floor and again beams at the ceiling.
- The garage and caves
- A staircase leads from the entrance hall to the basement. A second separate toilet, a garage for 3 cars and 2 caves of a total of 110m² leaves space for storage, a large workshop and management of the holiday homes. Outside is a separate laundry and storage room (4,5m²) for the guests of the holiday homes.
- In the cave the heating system for the whole complex can be found, as well as 4 electric water suppliers, each holiday home having its own and the main house is separate. The 3000 liter fuel supply is also located in one of the caves.
- The gîtes/holiday homes
Once outside again, the 3 adjacent holiday homes, type bungalows, have a modern ambiance. The interiors are 100% similar, but each gîte has its own charming view on the surroundings and is positioned differently to the sun. 2 of them are south-west, one is south-east.
- Inside the gîtes
- Inside each holiday home of 30m² approximately, entirely tiled, is a kitchen, a bathroom with shower, wash basin and a toilet. The living consists of a dinner space and a sleeping area for 2 people, separable by a curtain. In the bedroom is room for bunkbeds.
There is airconditioning.
- Each holiday home has its own terrace and garden. The houses all offer individual privacy for the renters, which is highly appreciated.
- Business aspects
- The renting is a big success, it offers a healthy turnover, whereas returning guests and new ones are well mixed. Of course the rental address database makes part of the sale.
- The premises offer lots of space to enlarge and extend the business. It is possible to build a 4th and even 5th gîte and rent them out as well.
- Possibility to transform gîtes into bungalow
- The existing building of the gîtes can also quite easily be transformed. The 3 existing holiday homes in 1 bungalow with views on both sides. And so create a property consisting of a bungalow-part and a villa.
- Technical details
- The property is entirely built with good materials, that are very well kept in shape.
- Windows, doors and shutters are all in wood, all windows are double glazed. The insulation of the roof and walls is according to standards.

This concept has proven very successfull from the start of this business model.
