The Prieuré La Madelène is an intimate charming guest house for your seminars, wellness courses, stays with friends or family, moments of your own or as a couple. Located at the foot of Mont Ventoux, the location is ideal for exploring Provence.

This 12th century Benedictine priory is made up of five guest rooms and a gîte. The enveloping intimacy of the Priory with its stone vaults and beams with Provencal simplicity and an invitation to relax.

On a human scale, this Benedictine building steeped in history, which was the property for nearly 20 years of the writer Marie Cardinal, is nestled in the midst of tree farms: cherry, apricot, plum, olive trees ... looks, hidden behind 2 umbrella pines, the Priory is revealed. The courtyard, the plane tree, the fountain ... No doubt, you are in Provence.

The terraces and recesses in the shade of the trellises, the swimming pool and its solarium as well as the refined decoration of the rooms with private bathroom will make you feel at home.

To reach “Chapelle”, you cross the reception room (living room and dining area), which was formerly the chapel of the Priory, hence the name given to the room.

A lovely stone staircase leads you to the entrance of this spacious accommodation. You will be won over by the vastness of this room and by the low windows that help keep it cool in summer.

This room has four windows looking out in each of the four cardinal directions. You can choose between a view of the orchards and surrounding countryside, the large wooden terrace with its two large stone pines, the rooftop terrace or the interior courtyard.

The “Chapelle” room can be converted into a “suite” that can accommodate a total of 5 guests, based on your needs.

You reach the split-level Ventoux bedroom via the vaulted living room, followed by a small, charming staircase.

Le Prieuré La Madelène is built on safre, a yellowish soil whose traditional Provençal name, la malaussena, is where the name of our village comes from.

You reach the “Safre” room through the vaulted living room and then through the old chapel, going down a few steps.

The “Safre” bedroom has a dual exposure. To the east, where the sun rises, the window overlooks the orchards and the large wooden terrace with its stone pines. The window facing south overlooks the interior courtyard and the plane tree.

La Madelène was novelist Marie Cardinal’s vacation resort for 20 years.

She first enjoyed huge success with her 1975 novel The Words to Say It. La Madelène appears in several of her works. We wished to pay tribute to the author by dedicating a room to her in her name and by planting a camellia in the garden.

As Marie Cardinal wrote, “La Madelène does not belong to us. We are only its guardians.”

This room has independent outside entrance. Halfway between the inner courtyard and the pool, the front door can be found on your right.

The bedroom has a dual exposure. To the west, under the slope of the roof, a window overlooks the swimming pool, providing beautiful light in the afternoon and evening. To the north, another window overlooks the garden with the great cypress of Provence.

Named in reference to the Benedictine monks who established Le Prieuré La Madelène in this location, this room evokes peace, tranquility and serenity.

You can reach it either through the vaulted living room and the old chapel, going down a few steps, or from the outside, by going under the trellis and the tasting room.

The walls of this room are made entirely of stone. An arch is still clearly visible, highlighting the foundations of the Priory. Lovers of history and architecture of the period will particularly enjoy this room.

This room has a window and a small skylight overlooking the back of the house and the greenery.

For security reasons related to site configuration, we are unable to accept children under the age of 16.

"Le calme absolu au pied du Ventoux"
Très belle bâtisse provençale, conservée au travers des âges, fruit des nombreuses époques qu'elle a traversées, posée seule, au bout d'un sentier entre les vergers. Rien que cette vue, en arrivant, vous relaxe déjà.
On y vient pour profiter d'une quiétude absolue et on en repart comblés.
Les hôtes, Bruno et Olivier, ont particulièrement bien décoré cette demeure qui réserve de belles surprises quand on la visite. Constituée de plusieurs bâtiments, on tombe tout d'abord en arrêt devant cette architecture atypique dont ils ont su si bien tirer parti. Ensuite, on profite des espaces aménagés, à l'intérieur comme à l'extérieur. De nombreux espaces sont distribués dans toute la bâtisse. Pièce commune chaleureuse, terrasses, pelouses, piscine, sont autant de lieux dont vous pourrez profiter seul ou à plusieurs.

Située au pied du Ventoux, elle offre un accès direct à la célèbre montagne que ce soit pour les fans de cyclisme, comme ceux de randonnées ou de simples balades. Sa situation privilégiée donne accès à tous les sites de la région : les gorges du Toulourenc, les Gorges de la Nesque, les domaines viticoles, les dentelles Montmirail... et j'en oublie (je laisse le soin à Olivier et Bruno de vous guider, pour les visites, comme pour les restaurants)

Si vous ne pouvez pas vous décoller du boulot ou que vous avez des ados grognons à l'idée de sortir de chez eux, la maison est équipée du wifi partout (sauf au bord de la piscine - il faut bien un endroit de vraie tranquillité !)

En conclusion, les hôtes sont charmants, les lieux fidèles à vos rêves et la région... On ne la présente plus ! Une adresse à garder et à partager sans modération
