Vaucluse Property For Sale

Map of Provence-Alpes

The Vaucluse is the rugged, authentic ‘arrière-pays’ or hinterland of Provence.

Named by the Romans from the Latin for ‘closed valley’ the Vaucluse is protected by the Rhone to the west, the Alps to the east, Mont Ventoux and the Dentelles de Montmirail to the north and the Luberon Mountains to the south.

Hewn from this ancient mountainous landscape are numerous ‘perched’ hilltop villages, the warm limestone cliffs and drystone walls of the Luberon and the ochre cliffs of Roussillon. No wonder that Vaucluse property feels as old as time itself.

The most expensive Vaucluse property is found in the unspoilt villages of the Luberon Regional Natural Park, an area made famous by Peter Mayle’s book ‘A Year in Provence’. Luberon property prices reach their zenith in the so called ‘Golden Triangle’ formed between the perched hilltop villages of Gordes, Menerbes and Bonnieux. Property in lovely L’Isle sur la Sorgue is also sought after thanks to its renowned antique markets.

Buy in the north of the department if you’re looking for the great outdoors on a dramatic scale; this is home to Mont Ventoux (the Tour de France’s toughest climb) and the excellent hiking country afforded by its foothills the Dentelles de Montmiral. Property in Seguret (one of the ‘most beautiful villages of France’) would be perfectly placed to offer walking holidays. Wine lovers take note: this is also home to some of the Rhone Valley’s most robust reds such as Gigondas, Vacquéras and Châteauneuf du Pape as well as the white Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise dessert wine. Wine tasting holidays anyone?

Most of Vaucluse’s historical and cultural riches are found in the west; property in Avignon (the departmental capital) gives you access to the medieval Palais des Papes (Popes’ Palace), its famous bridge (“Sur le Pont d’Avignon”) and July’s Festival d’Avignon (the equivalent of the UKs Edinburgh Festival).

Property in Orange would interest visiting culture vultures with its spectacular ancient Roman amphitheatre The Théâtre Antique d’Orange (now an alfresco opera, drama, ballet and rock venue) and the wonderfully intact 2,000 year old Arc de Triomphe marking Rome’s victory over the Gauls in 102 BC.

Vaucluse property is easily reached by Avignon airport (which has direct flights to the UK) and by nearby Nimes and Marseille airports. Paris is a mere 2 hours 39 minutes away by TGV.
