Seguret is likely to be found in every photo-journal of the most beautiful villages in Provence. It is a quintessential medieval village and it just happens to be in some of the best wine country of the Rhone valley. Perched on a hilltop, the view of the surrounding valley is spectacular at any time of day. The center of the village is for pedestrians only and includes several shops and galleries. The Hotel and Restaurant at the top, La Table du Comtat, is home to chef Franck GOMEZ , a member of the prestigious MaÃ®tre Cuisinier de France. His elegant dining is everything you may have looked for in fine French dining, Provence style.
Entry Level: Welcome your guests. The entry foyer has its own fireplace, comfy sitting chair and small library. Straight ahead is the separate fully equipped kitchen which opens to a small herb garden. To the right of the entry is the large L-shaped dining and sitting room. There is another fire place, access to its own small terrace and four almost floor to ceiling arch windows that open to greenery and let in the bird calls.
At this level you can snooze by the fire, sip tea in the kitchen, take breakfast in the herb garden, enjoy formal dining or just lounge. Ancient stone steps lead from the herb garden to the large south facing terrace on level one which gives views of the village, the deep green valley bordering two sides of the house, and the horizon towards Avignon. The night view is particularly inviting with the village lights shining on rock faces and the moon bright and clear.
French First Level: You take the sweeping staircase in the entry to the first level. Here you find two bedrooms, both with queen beds. The main bedroom opens out to the terrace and has its own spacious walk in closet and writing desk. The large bathroom has a full sized bath, toilet and combined shower with solid screen
Outside: Tucked in a little nook, there's a sweet little terrace (not shown) where you can sit for morning coffee or late day wine. Its shady and very special. The large south facing terrace will be wonderful for that special dinner for friends and family. Late evening, this lovely terrace can be accessed directly from the master bedroom.
Linen Hire & Other: Bed linen and towels are included. Facilities include telephone, TV, DVD, stereo, washing machine and dishwasher.
10 kms from Vaison-la-Romaine which features 2000 year old Roman ruins on the flat and a medieval castle ruin high in its centre. You can sit in the still used 6000 seat roman amphitheatre and walk or drive over the 2000 year old single span gallo-roman bridge. With 6500 inhabitants this town still has a village feel but provides all the amenities you could possibly need to make your stay comfortable. On Tuesdays market stalls fill every street offering all that you imagine from a provenÃ§al market.
