Directions from the Autoroute 7, just south of Lyon

If travelling from the south up the A7 we advise exiting at Montelimar Sud and using the following directions(other routes, though quicker, can be tricky to follow). For those driving south we strongly advise the use of the A46 motorway round Lyon, the other routes can be quite hair raising!

•  On the A7 travel south past the town of Vienne and after that its another 75 minutes till the junction Montelimar Sud, please be aware that there are 2 junctions at Montelimar (Nord and Sud.)


•  Once you are off the motorway and through the tolls, you will come to a roundabout, turn left and head towards the wind farm, the road runs parallel to the motorway for about 2km.

•  Just before the wind farm you will come across another roundabout, take the left turn marked Valreas which will take you over the motorway and under the TGV high speed train line.

•  Just after the train line there is yet another roundabout, which you turn right at, again following signs for Valreas, that's the tricky part done!

•  You are now on the road that runs right past the village, stay on it for 15 � 20 minutes, the road will start to climb and become twisty; when you get here it is time to start looking out for the turn.

•  After the road has levelled out you will see an Intermarche supermarket on the right hand side, 200 metres after this, on the same side, is the turn marked Chamaret.

•  Don't get caught admiring the view of Grignan or you will miss the turn!

•  Next is a very straight road for about 3km which takes you straight into the village, time to get out the map of the village!

•  In the centre of the village just past the post office is a Left turn, take this and drive past the Bar d'Avenue.

•  About 500m down this road on the left hand side is the Bastide Des Launes (it's the last house on the left, and marked on the map.) The drive entrance is just past our oak copse and before the road bottoms out and starts to climb again.

•  Turn into the drive and take the right hand fork through the fruit tree orchard and round to the car park at the rear of the house.
