Villa les Dentelles is an ancient wine estate near the town of Beaumes-de-Venise. The name stems from the hills just behind the house: ‘Les Dentelles de Mont Mirail’, a very picturesque area between the plains of the Rhone valley and legendary Mt. Ventoux. The domain is located on the site of an ancient Roman Villa and is close to the beautiful Romanesque Chapel 'Notre-Dame d’Aubune'.
Beaumes-de-Venise is famous all over the world for its sweet ‘Muscat’ wines, appreciated as a fine desert wine or a cool aperitif. The town offers plenty of restaurants and terraces and can be easily reached by a footpath which is directly accessible from the property, a 10 minute walk.
Arriving at the property the first thing that stands out are the huge centenary plane trees protecting the house and the courtyard from the mid summer sun. Ample shaded parking is available.
The house has been renovated recently to a very high standard. All floors are stone or wood and all doors, windows, shutters and wall panels are of beautiful French oak. There are two spacious kitchens, tastefully designed and equipped to the latest standards. All bedding is of the highest quality. The massive historic walls guarantee an agreeable indoor climate year round: cool during summer and comfortably warm during the pre- and afterseason. The whole house is equipped with under floor heating, making it perfect for off-season stays as well.
In front of the house is a courtyard dominated by a beautiful restored façade. The courtyard opens up onto the parking and ‘jeu-de-boules’ area. Just behind the courtyard you'll find the magnificent pool (12x6m) with adjacent fully equipped pool house, overlooking the vineries and the plains of the Rhone valley up to ‘Les Alpilles’, near St Remy de Provence.
Entering the house you arrive in a hallway that gives access to the first living area with open fireplace. Behind this cozy area is a spacious kitchen, fully equipped and fitted with oak wood paneling and a granite kitchen top. The huge dining table can be sized to accommodate any group or family. The kitchen enjoys beautiful views of the setting sun and over the valley. From the living area authentic Provencal stairways lead up to four double bedrooms. Three of the four bedrooms have en suite bathroom facilities, the fourth bedroom has a separate bathroom. All beds can be made up as two singles or one double.
To the right of the entrance hallway is a beautifully designed dormitory for the kids. It has four comfortable bunk beds and its own bathroom, with a separate toilet across the hall.
Going up the stairs directly from the hallway you arrive in a second huge kitchen, again fully equipped and fitted with oak, granite and handmade tiles. Next to this kitchen is another living area with big open fire place, with doors opening up onto the shaded terrace behind the house. Adjacent to this living space is a bedroom with en suite bathroom. Stairs lead up to another two bedrooms, each with their own en suite bathroom facilities.
The outside terrace has a large dining table with ample seating, and a large BBQ. This is a good spot to enjoy an al fresco lunch or dinner. From the terrace you enjoy nice views of the 'Notre-Dame d’Aubune'.
The pool area offers a heated swimming pool measuring 12x6m. This whole area is fenced off for safety reasons and the pool is equipped with an electric deck. Adjacent to the pool is a spacious pool house, fully equipped with BBQ, fridge and kitchen. In and around the pool house you'll find several sitting areas and lounge chairs. There are outside and indoor showers, two dressing rooms and a toilet. The sun deck around the pool sports 16 sun beds.
The jeu-de-boules court is situated between the house and the pool. This area has a beautiful shaded terrace with nice views of the pool area and 'Les Alpilles'.
Villa les Dentelles is situated at walking distance from the charming Provencal village of Beaumes-de-Venise, where you will find shops, restaurants and bars. It's a 90 mins. drive from Marseille-Marignane airport, 30 minutes from Avignon, 1 hour from the sea and 60 minutes from Aix-en-Provence. You'll find a 18-hole golf course near Saumane, at 25 km.

Villa Les Dentelles was a beautiful location we rented, the location was impressive and so were the pool and pool house, the bedrooms and the two kitchen which were very well equipped. We spent 14 unforgettable days near Beaumes de Venise. If we should once again spend our holidays in Provence with our family and friends, we shall certainly come back!

Our stay at Villa les Dentelles was just fantastic! The house and surroundings were amazing and we enjoyed the good life with great wines (can't miss them because of the wineyards everywhere). The design of the villa is just beautiful, with great comfort in the rooms and perfectly equipped kitchens. Last but not least, the hospitality and help of the owners was so good, and friendly! Thanks and regards,

We really enjoyed our stay in Provence and found the house to be very good for a large group such as ourselves. We have stayed in many properties throughout Europe as a large group but found this one to be one of the best yet. The pool and pool area where excellent for us and the children, the outside dinning area was also great. Often the outside dinning can be a disappointment. All of the rooms in the house were very well kept, clean and well equipped. We also thought the location of the property of this size to be excellent. Our only regret is that it was so hot we barely left the pool!! We also found the owners to be very friendly and helpful. Overall the booking experience was also very easy and the pre arrival information very detailed and useful. We would certainly recommend the property and yourself to friends looking to stay in Provence. Many thanks!

They have been very attentive to any of our requestst and helped organizing bike rentals, tours, restaurant bookings, and assisted in all our group of 12 people might have needed. The property is amazing, very well kept and equipped. Hope we will come back here soon! Warm regards,

We had a wonderful stay in Beaumes-de-venise. We were 8 couples and all had a nice room and bathroom, a very, very beautiful house. We cooked every day and were very glad with the equipment in the kitchen. Enough material and good material. A very warm welcome. The caretakers are very helpful: very friendly, very nice people. Swimmingpool: great! Outside kitchen: well equipped! Nice place! If we should once again spend our holidays in Provence with our family and friends, we shall certainly come back!

Guus from Netherlands
We absolutely loved our stay. The house was fantastic and exceptionally well equipped, marvelously renovated a couple of years ago. We also appreciated the quality and size of the beds! We enjoyed the beautiful pool and pool house in all privacy. Great location and it was fantastic to be able to walk to the village alongside the little river behind the house in about 15 minutes. We congratulate the owners with their beautiful and well kept property and we appreciated their discrete hospitality. Best regards,
Veronique from Belgium
