Maison Mimi

This serene, sophisticated home could not be a bigger surprise. As you enter the property on a gravel road, you come upon an old stone bastide – a U-shaped set of buildings around a central courtyard, with a fully operational winery – Domaine L'Ameillaud. The winery is known for its lovely CĂ´tes du Rhone Villages Cairanne wines. There are two stylish flats – Le Grand and Le Petit. The valley setting between Orange and Vaison-la-Romaine, is dominated by the Dentelles de Montmirail, Mont Ventoux and vineyards stretching for miles in every direction. The town of Cairanne is just under 2 kilometers, an easy walk or bike ride. You can relax around the pool on summer afternoons. Or, if you visit during Fall, you may be able to participate in harvesting the grapes and making wine.
