FRANCETREK was established in 1991 when Patrick and Christiane bought a house in the village of Vinsobres in the Drome Provencal. The holidays offered have changed over the years and,after Christiane died in 2008, now my companion Jane and I offer our holidays based in our new home at the top of the village. The seasons start with spring blossoms on the almond, cherry and apricot trees. Early summer is lavender time in many fields around the village, June and early July being the best period. We then have the lovely summer days with glorious evenings to dine on the terraces. The cooler months arrive with the grape picking and then late September and October see the truly beautiful fall colours in the vines. Of course we have the scenery and the hilltop villages throughout the year.
We have moved to a delightful Centuries old house high up in Vinsobres village. It had superb views , large 25m square bedrooms, old oak beamed dining room, terraces, extensive library, internet access, garden terrace and indooor /outdoor heated large pool. Plus we are only 5 minutes walk from the bistro, bakery and cafe. Bikes are available free of charge and there are delightful walks directly from the house through the village and into lavender fields and vineyards. Photographs will soon be added of the house .
