Bedroom on the Square


This three-bedroom house with garden, built in 1760 on medieval foundations, is in traditional provençal style.  It sleeps 5-7 and is situated on the charming village square in the centre of Mirabel-aux-Baronnies in the Drome Provençal.
The house has a well-equipped kitchen and dining area, which looks onto the village square with ancient plane trees and 13th century fountain.  The spacious sitting room has a traditional provençal fireplace and original wooden beams.  A small room off the sitting room serves as a library, as well as a spare bedroom with a double bed.

Upstairs, the master double bedroom overlooks the garden, with views over rooftops to the Mont Ventoux (1909m).  A second large double bedroom looks over the village square, and up to the medieval church spire at the top of the village. There is a quiet third single bedroom on the first floor, and a shower room, with a bidet, w.c. and washbasin.  There is a separate utility room with a washing machine.

Downstairs, doors lead from the sitting room to a south-facing terrace and walled garden, with lavender, vines, rosemary, thyme and other provençal herbs.  The garden also has a table, chairs, parasol and a BBQ: it’s the ideal setting for aperitifs and a game of boules before an evening BBQ.
The house offers something for everyone: books, a stereo system, a piano …. and is a perfect base from which to explore this wonderful region, with its markets, pretty villages, vineyards, apricot and olive groves …
