Vaucluse house in lively Provence wine village for rent
Le Portail Neuf, a comfortable and authentic village house in the lively provencal wine village of Beaumes de Venise, in the beautiful Vaucluse region of Provence.
The house is located within the old walls of the village, adjacent to one of the original gateways. It has been sympathetically renovated, retaining its original character, but with everything necessary for a comfortable stay for up to five people. Enter Rue du Chateau from the Place du Portail Neuf, with its fountain and its regular gathering of locals.
Pass under the overhanging vine, up the timeworn steps to the front door. You enter a large and well-equipped kitchen complete with a traditional farmhouse table and exposed timber beams. Visitors in the colder months can enjoy the comfort and atmosphere of an open fire. Take the stairs to the next level and the spacious and comfortable main bedroom with a large double bed and bathroom with separate toilet.
The top floor level has a double bedroom with another large double bed and a single bed. Like the main bedroom, this spacious room overlooks the Rue du Chateau. With its elevated position and two shuttered windows this is a light and pleasant room with views across the village rooftops. There is also a sitting room with TV and DVD. Off the sitting room is the terra cotta tiled balcony overlooking the Place du Portail Neuf, and with great views across the village and the Provencal landscape to Mont Ventoux.
Free wireless broadband internet is provided, as well as free telephone calls to fixed lines in France, and many western countries including Australia, New Zealand, Great Britain, Canada and the USA. (Calls to mobile phones are not included and will be charged back to guests)
The village is famous for its muscat wines, medieval fortifications and chateau atop the rocky outcrop behind the village. The focal point of the village, the 16th century church and bell tower is in the Cours Jean Jaurès. Around the Cours, or town square, is a range of shops and services, including cafés, boulangeries, and a restaurant. Each Tuesday is market day in the Cours Jean-Jauré with a number of traders offering a range of goods and local produce.
Beaumes de Venise is located in the beautiful Vaucluse region of Provence with countless places to see and things to do within easy reach.

Close by are also Avignon, St Remy, Uzes, Gordes and the Cote du Rhone wine villages.
