Maison de l'Arc, chambre d'hôtes à Orange, Vaucluse
With its parc and swimming pool, since 2001, Villa de l'Arc had been used as a luxury Guesthouse situated at a comfortable five minutes walk from main street where you can have 'Bed and Breakfast' during your holidays in Vaucluse, Provence.
Orange is one of the foremost historical cities of France. As an old Roman fortified city, it is world-renowned: Orange houses no less that two world-monuments on Unesco's list of Human Heritage. There is the Arc de Triomphe, built just about in the front yard of Villa de l'Arc (granted: the Arc was there first). The Arc measures about 60 feet high and wide and is the world's third ranking remaining Roman triumphal arc. It was built in 27 BC.
It still stands there, virtually untouched, for you to enjoy. And then there is the Theatre Antique, built around 90 AC. The stage wall still stands erect, some 100 feet high. Only very few amphitheatres in the world still have that feature. On warm summer-evenings, opera-performances and concerts are offered in the Theatre Antique for 8000 attendees. An experience you won't forget for the rest of your life.
Back to the Orange of today. Find your favourite café, with its lovely terrace on the square right in front of the ancient city hall of Orange. Have a seat and relax in the early morning sun with a café au lait. Or in the late afternoon sun with a kir or pastis. Orange is the centre of the world-famous Rhone wines and you can taste that all over town. Watch the passers-by, enjoy the colours of the Provence and find peace.
Eat tomatoes à la Provençale or salade niçoise like you have never eaten it before, here with us in the Provence. Drink rosé wine from here, because that is what we all do. Or drink a genuine Châteauneuf-du-Pape wine, because it just tastes better on the soil where it was produced. Drink, eat, relax, enjoy, become Provencal with the Provencals.
