Located between Mont Ventoux and Dentelles de Montmirail, this restored home dates from the 12th century, when it was a Benedictine Priory. It retains some ancient features and the meter-thick walls incorporate stones cut in Roman Times. The house was previously owned by a French novelist who use dit as a retreat for family and friends. The vendors have continued this tradition as well as offering it as a venue for wine and cycle tours and as a film location.

For wine enthusiasts, the home is convieniently situated close to world class Southern Rhone wine appellations while emerging Ventoux stars are on the doorstep. Goats cheese, truffles, olive oil and fruit are all produced in the neighbouring countryside.
The house is flexibly arranged with 2/3 kitchens, laundry room, 3 reception rooms including a vault room with alcôves, 10 bedrooms and 9 bath/shower rooms. It could easily be refigured.
The garden is largely terraced with a west-facing 11x5 pool and is partly shaded by ancient trees including cypresses, parasol pines and plain (4 830 m²). A haven of peace and tranquility with prestige and facilities and fittings.
