Gigondas, the well-known wine village in the region of the Vaucluse, is of a charming beauty. Winding streets, a little fountain, and the square beneath the plain trees. And the extraordinary setting, with over 300 sunny days a year. The town (600 habitants) is set in the foothills of a vast and stunning area with hills like the Dentelles de Montmirail, a true paradise for walkers. The Mont Ventoux is at 25 minutes by car. A somewhat longer daytrip is possible to Gordes or St. Rémy de Provence - take the route through the Gorges du Verdon, or the Camargue. Closer by are the towns of Avignon, Orange, Arles and Aix-en-Provence, and the medieval villages of Séguret and Les Baroux. You will find weekly markets with lovely local products in Vaison-la-Romaine and Carpentras.
Also for culture lovers there is a lot to see and to do: in summer Orange has its own opera festival in the ancient Roman theatre, the Chorégies d’Orange. Avignon has its international theatre festival in July, and in August in Roque d’Anthéron the greatest piano players give concerts under the starry skies. In Arles there is the famous international photographer’s festival every summer. Except for these large events there are many local festivals throughout the region.

    Een heel bijzonder huis op een heel bijzondere plek. Het huis met tuin ligt in het dorp met veel leuke wijnbars, restaurants en een klein winkeltje om de hoek. De auto kan om de hoek bij de stadsmuur geparkeerd worden wat erg handig is. Het huis is oud maar sfeervol. De kleine tuin met terras is erg fijn en biedt een fraai uitzicht over de omgeving. Kortom een heerlijke plek.

    Wij hebben hier een heerlijke vakantie gehad! Deze gite is vooral geschikt voor mensen zoals wij, die overdag op pad zijn en 's avonds uit eten gaan. 's Morgens ontbijten met vers brood in de gezellige keuken met prachtig uitzicht en 's avonds nog een afzakkerje in de keuken of op het buitenplaatsje aan de overkant van de straat. Alhoewel ik het daar niet lang volhield op de kleine metalen klapstoeltjes. 😏
    Verder heeft de gite alles wat je nodig hebt voor een heerlijke vakantie.
    Note: de beloofde wasmachine en droger zijn er niet; die horen bij het beneden-appartement. Wij wilden zo min mogelijk meenemen en hebben dus op de hand moeten wassen. Maar goed; het was vakantie en we hadden de tijd 😊

    Comment from Gilles van der Putt

    Beste Barbara,
    Mijn excuses voor de verwarring. De kelderruimte met wasmachine en droger is voor gemeenschappelijk gebruik.
    Hartelijke groet,

    Leuk authentiek Provençaals huis met mooie groene afgesloten tuin in het prachtige Gigondas. Aangenaam en rustig dorp met leuke restaurants, een winkel en vele goede wijnkelders. Een goede uitvalsbasis naar veel bezienswaardigheden, Middeleeuwse dorpen en wijn caves. Mooie natuur voor lange wandelingen.

Restaurants, food & wine

The Gigondas is an excellent Cotes-du-Rhone wine. If you are a wine lover, the local wine cellars should not be missed! Don't forget the other Vaucluse wines, like the Vacqueras and the Cairanne, or the famous sweet wine the Muscat de Beaumes de Venise, produced at 5 km in the village with the same name....
In the numerous good restaurants in the region all these wines are being served. Here is something to suit every taste and budget, from the typical Provencal cuisine in a romantic garden (Les Tuileries, Violes) to classy food on a panoramic terrace (les Florets, Gigondas), or Michelin Stars with a Dutch chef (Le Grand Pré, Roaix).


Practically from your doorstep there are several hiking trails which lead you through the Dentelles de Montmirail. There are also possibilities for mountain/rock climbing (if needed with a local teacher/guide), horseback riding and ATB. Somewhat further there is canoeing on the Ardèche River or the Sorgues River. In Camaret there is a 9 holes golf court. Summer swimming pools are to find in Beaumes de Venise (5 km). Have a relaxing day in the Toulourenc between Entrechaux en Mollans - and finish your day with a plate of sea food (fruits de mer) on the terrace of St Hubert in Entrechaux. Also in Mormoiron there is a swimming lake (plan d'eau) with restaurant.
On the slopes of the Mont Ventoux (less than 20 km from the village) there are the ski stations.
On walking distance from your gite is the tennis court of Gigondas, please go to the Tourist Office for information. And, of course, there is a petanque court in the village.
