We had a lovely week at the Rieufroid. It is an old house with character. Ideal for a totally relaxing break.
The pool has lovely views and is partially shaded by trees if you need to get out of the sun. We particularly liked the courtyard garden which is adjacent to the kitchen and where we ate most evenings. The house has four bedrooms, two each on the first and second floors. Each floor also has a bathroom giving flexibility of use for larger groups.
The owner has a separate house on the site and maintains very attractive gardens and is an attentive and welcoming host.
Malaucene, the nearest town, is a short drive away and has good facilities including bars and restaurants. During our stay we visited Avignon and Orange as well as some of the nearby hill towns. There are at least two long-distance walking trails that pass the house. Unfortunately the summer heat prevented any serious attempts at these. more
