Truffle Gite at Bastide des Launes en Provence

Bastide des Launes is a charming 400 year old Provencal country house situated in the scenic southern Drome countryside on the edge of the picturesque village of Chamaret with its distinctive medieval tower (a useful aid to any lost traveller!). The village is surrounded by sun drenched Provencal countryside including lavender fields, vineyards and truffle trees with magnificent views in all directions including one of Mont Ventoux.

The Truffle Gite sleeps two ( it is possible to accommodate four guests with the addition of the Blue bedroom at an additional charge). When we came to do the conversion of this large barn we decided we did not want ...Read more

Additional Location Information

The Truffle Gite at The Bastide des Launes is a charming 400 year old Provencal country house situated in the scenic southern Drôme countryside on the edge of the picturesque village of Chamaret with its distinctive medieval tower (a useful aid to any lost traveller!). The village is surrounded by sun drenched Provencal countryside including lavender fields, vineyards and truffle trees with magnificent views in all directions including one of Mont Ventoux.

The local village is just a 3 minute stroll away and there you will find the "Tour de Chamaret" a medieval watch tower built to warn the fortified "Chateau de Grignan" of unwelcome guests. Nowadays the village is more accommodating to visitors and boasts a bar, boulangerie, fruit & vegetable stall, and post office. We are now on Facebook where there are more photographs and some wonderful 360 degree photos of the Bastide, Truffle and Stable Gites created by Dave Epps, the address is here: (website: hidden).

In the local area the stunning Chateau de Grignan dominates the view, with its narrow streets, high walls and monastery, all of which are open to the public. Gringan has a lively artistic colony with many galleries and workshops in its narrow twisting lanes. The Roman amphitheatre in the town of Orange and the famous "Pont d'Avignon" are all within an hour’s drive of the Bastide des Launes. Further afield but within the reach of a day trip are the beaches of the Mediterranean, the famous Roman aqueduct "Le Pont du Gard" and the spectacular villages of Gordes and Roussillon.

We are in the middle of the Rhone wine area, and some of France's finest vineyards are within easy reach, with Hermitage, Crozes Hermitage, Cornas and St Joseph just an hour North of here, and Chateauneuf du Pape, Vacqueyras, Gigondas, Rasteau, Cairanne, Sablet and Seguret half that time, to the south. Andrew is an expert on Rhone wines and is always pleased to offer advice, particularly over a bottle of Cairanne red! In addition there are several award winning vineyards within a few minutes drive of the Bastide and we will be pleased to point you in their direction.
