A perfect rural retreat in picturesque Provencal village with open fireplace and roof terrace with panoramic views of the hills. Explore the sun-drenched hills, medieval stone villages, classic French markets, lavender fields, Rhone valley vineyards and gastronomy from the perfect base of Les Toits Roses.
