Villa Theophile

Chateau -
8 Bedrooms , 6 Bathrooms , Sleeps 12
Gigondas, Vaucluse, Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur
Beautiful chateau with private pool in a magnificent setting. Well maintained, with eight bedrooms, six bathrooms and vast living spaces indoors and out, this is the perfect place for family and friends to share a memorable holiday, enjoy time together and explore the area. The perfect venue for your yoga retreat or artists workshop. If you're coming from the UK, the TGV rail service direct from London to Avignon has made getting to this part of Provence even easier.

Set in woodland with stunning views from every window, the vineyards of Gigondas, Vacqueyras and Beaumes de Venise encircle the chateau. This property and its lovely gardens have plenty of space for groups of family or friends to have fun together in a very private setting.

The house has been renovated to a high standard and is just waiting to be enjoyed. The poo...

The Villa Theophille looks wonderful on the Trip Advisor photos - it is better in real life. It's difficult to gauge the ambience and the size from photos. The Villa is beautifully appointed and maintained. The pool and surrounding areas are perfect for families -...More

About the neighborhood
The closest village, Vacqueyras, is within easy walking distance and has a good cafe/restaurant as well as a baker, butcher, greengrocer, pharmacy and post office. The local vignerons all offer tastings and the wine co-operatives, Les Vignerons de Caractere in Vacqueyras and the Cave de Gigondas, are not to be missed. Vacqueyras celebrates its wines and those of the region each year on 13 and 14 July at the Fete des Vins and there are similar events in other nearby villages.

Walks into the Dentelles de Montmirail are very popular, as are cycle rides. There are tennis courts in Vacqueyras (1.5km), cycle hire in Beaumes de Venise (5km), and horse riding in Aubignan (5km). A beach at the Lac de Monteux features many watersports and Splashworld - the biggest water park in France, with su...
Getting around
Public transport is in short supply but the nearest village - and its shops and restaurants - are accessible on foot. If you have guests arriving by train, and are short of time to pick them up at Avignon, there is a new spur line that runs to Carpentras and the nearest station at Monteux is just 20 minutes away by car.

How to get there
Airport: Avignon, 40mins/38km : 23.6 mi
Railway: Avignon TGV, 40mins/40kms : 24.9 mi
A car is highly recommended, to enable you to explore some of the glorious countryside and historical sites nearby, tour the vineyards of the Rhone Valley, and take in the wonderful cultural events of the region.

Many UK visitors drive all the way; the house is approximately 9 hours' driving time from Calais and the main channel ports using the motorways. If you prefer the train, the new Eurostar service, with direct services three times a week from London to Avignon in late spring, five times a week in high summer, has just made getting here by train a whole lot easier. Picking up a hire car from the nearby airports and stations couldn't be easier, the journeys are straightforward and detailed directions will be provided when bookings are confirmed.
