Located on the outskirts of the typical Provencal village of Ventabren, overlooking the local mill, you will find La Roucoulade. A quiet and poetic place, with an old bastide which was completely renovated by the French owners, Clémence and Guillaume, and transformed into a private house and a charming gîte for 4 people.

The gîte is tastefully decorated whereby authentic elements (such as the old tile floor) and antique pieces are harmoniously combined with art deco furniture and contemporary details. Soft tones on the walls and colorful decorations (we love the small wall dishes in the living room) create a warm and homely ambiance.There are 2 bedrooms, one of which is a children's room with its own toys. In addition, there is a large open-plan living area with a kitchen and lounge/dining area with a unique 360-degree fireplace that can be enjoyed with a book or game on chilly spring and autumn evenings.

Outside, you will find an oasis of calm, with different areas to suit everyone's needs: a heated swimming pool (for hours of water fun), a large lawn, a jeu-de-boules court, and a shady dining table under the old hackberry trees for summer lunches and dinners.

Between the sea, green hills, and typical villages, La Roucoulade is a perfect home base for trips in the area. Stroll through the historic streets of the village of Ventabren, visit Aix-en-Provence, or drive (in 30 minutes) to the coastal lagoon 'Etang de Berre' with its beautiful beaches. Also, ask the owners for their favourite addresses and their extra services... Wine tastings, a private chef, delicious cold bites, but also a yoga teacher and massages can be arranged... They have thought of everything!

La Roucoulade is set at the foot of the typical Provencal village of Ventabren. The village has a beautiful historic center and provides all daily amenities. In the hills around the village, you can walk and practice other sports.

At only 30 minutes' driving, you will find the large coastal lagoon 'Etang de Berre' where you can swim, enjoy water sports, and relax in the sun on the various beaches. In the summer various festivals are organised in the authentic villages around the water. The towns of Martigues (51km), Istres (41km), and the fishing village Saint-Chamas (29km), with its beautiful beach, are really worth a visit. Culture and history can also be found in Aix-en-Provence (17 km), Salon-de-Provence (28 km), where Nostradamus is buried, and the bustling city of Marseille (40 km).

A little further away (at about an hour's drive), you will find the beautiful nature reserve Calanques (55 km) with its impressive limestone cliffs and the charming town of Cassis (67 km) known for its pebble beaches and its lively harbour with pastel-coloured buildings, terraces, and restaurants.

The airport of Marseille is only 20 km away.
