About Mr. Carroll
We live in northern Europe and have bought the house as a holiday home to get away from big city life.
Mr. Carroll purchased this House in 2000
Why Mr. Carroll chose Le Barroux
The house is in such a beautiful french village with its own Chateau. The views from the village and the surroundings are amazing.
What makes this House unique
The village is a classified village and offers some of the best views in the region, of an evening walking around the small streets it is easy to forget that we are in the 21st century, the village has little changed over the last hundred years. When you walk down the street and leave the village you can easily walk off into the vineyards and surrounding hills for hours.

Great Get Away!
Beautifully and comfotably furnished with everything you need, including a chef's kitchen and modern bathroom for each bedroom-great! Lovely terrace to have your apperitif or dine al fresco in the evening. Cute tea and gift shop steps away. Parking on the street was easy actually. We hope to come back many times to this bucolic French get away! Communication with the owner was excellent.
Would love to stay for a month (or more!)
Nothing was lacking. The kitchen was so well equipped we prepared dinners every night. The home is comfortably furnished with high quality. Very clean. A lovely village.
A wonderful home from home
We have just spent a fabulous week in the House at Le Barroux. What a lovely experience it was. The house is beautifully furnished and so so comfortable , a real treasure of a house in a beautiful village.
The owners have provided an extremely well equipped kitchen where all needs are met. The laundry facilities are good and the top terrace a delight. We spent many an evening there as the sun went down with a view of Mont Ventoux and the castle.Cant wait to go back Thank you so much Michael it was perfect.

La Cour Verte is in the small Provençal village of Le Barroux with great character and lots of activities, dominated by a 12th to 16th century Chataue. The village has a small shop for day-to-day living, and 3 traditional cafes and restaurants, all with outside terraces. The village is perfect to walk around at night or day and is full of history.
The nearby town of Carpentras, 12 kilometres away, was the capital city of the ancient "Comtat Venaissin" that gave its name to Beaumes de Venise. It was ceded to the popes in 1274, when the papacy resided in Avignon, and remained the estate of the popes until the French Revolution in 1791. Carpentras is situated at the foot of Mont Ventoux. This mountain gives views as far as the Mediterranean and the French Alps; it is also famous as a particularly gruelling stage of the Tour de France.
Further afield are the towns of Vaison La Romaine, Orange, Avignon, Nîmes, Arles, and Aix en Provence, all of which renowned for their Roman and medieval architecture, and feature open-air theatres where events are staged throughout the summer months. Every day there are excellent markets to visit where one can buy the freshest regional products. The town of L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue is well worth visiting, as it is full of antique shops. The cities of Marseilles and Montpellier, the beaches of the Mediterranean, the national parks of the Camargue and Vercours, and the spectacular caves and gorges of the Ardeche and Verdon rivers are all well situated for a day trip.
