Converted Old Chapel

The former chapel was built in the early 19th century, and in more recent years was tastefully converted into a house for residential use.

The current owners bought it as a ruin and restored it from the ground up, keeping the shape and remaining historical stones.

The 95m² building is in very good condition, all the remaining original features have been preserved and the renovation has kept the original aspect of the build absolutely intact.


On the ground floor is the kitchen, the shower room with WC and a small storeroom for tools and groceries.

The main part of the building consists of a large 40m² living room with a beautiful open stone fireplace, over which sleeping areas are set out over three mezzanine levels.

A stone and wooden staircase gives access to a first mezzanine that can be used as a snug or office room.

On one side you can access a semi-circular mezzanine, on the opposite side is another higher and larger mezzanine; both are used as sleeping areas.
The first bedroom has a double bed, the second bedroom has two single beds.

The mezzanines are open plan and simply separated by curtains, which creates a vast and unique open space of almost 75m² in area with maximum ceiling height of 7 meters.

The property is being sold with all of the furniture and appliances, so you can move in right away.

The land

The building is positioned on a 440m² plot, with a South-East view towards the vallée du Rhône. There is a wooden tool shed and plenty of trees to take shelter from the sun and attach your hammocks.
You will find olive trees, almond trees, bay trees (lauriers), paper mulberry (mûriers de chine), apricot trees, fig trees, as well as passion fruit, lavender, rosemary, thyme, verveine, and several other varieties of Provençal herbs and plants.

The remainder of the land (~2000m²) is on the other side of a small municipal road and currently features a vegetable garden (tomatoes, courgettes, aubergines...), a vast area to play badminton or park your cars, as well as an infinity swimming pool.

The swimming pool is private and secluded: sunbathe at its edge (on local flat stones) or swim down its 11m length (5m width), with a depth ranging from 1.4m to 2.0m. It features a diving stone and spectacular views of the pre-Alps and Mont Ventoux (étape du Tour de France). Contemplate the vast Provençal landscape while swimming in the daytime, or stargaze at some of the clearest skies in France at night (Mont Aigoual observatory is not far away).

The surrounding farmlands cultivate almonds, lavender and grapes.
