Mazan: Auberge du Vin (au lieu d’un Gite)

IMG_0646

From the large pool of the Auberge du Vin, you gaze out at an ocean of vineyards which seem to flow up to the slopes of the Mont Ventoux in the distance.

What guests treasure about the Auberge is its peaceful isolation: no neighbors, except the vines mind you, no traffic, and no obstructions to the mesmerizing views.

The Auberge is a French farmhouse converted into a bed and breakfast where wine courses ranging from half-day to three day sessions are conducted periodically throughout the year.

Open all year, you can book accommodations at the Auberge without enrolling in any wine course, and the property, which also has two self-contained cottages, has hosted numerous weddings and their guests.

Located in Mazan, 16 miles northeast of Avignon, the Auberge du Vin is the home of Linda Field and Christopher Hunt. Linda is a WSET-qualified wine teacher who has taught wine courses and judged wine competitions in London before resettling in the Vaucluse.

Bed and Breakfast guests staying at the Auberge tap into Linda’s wine knowledge of the region and her advice on visits to local wineries in the Ventoux, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas and Vacqueryas, and to the picturesque villages and charming restaurants in the region, including Avignon and the Luberon.
