About the owners:

Paul and Miriam Kluijtmans-van Leuven, of Dutch origin but got married in the Ardêche in 1983, live and work with their family since 1999 at the Domaine du Crestet, 10 mins. east of Rasteau. With lots of personal effort and dedication they renovated the domaine to create for you the perfect vacation house they always looked for. Their international experience in the building industry was a big help. In 2006 they purchased Villa La Bacchante in Rasteau and the renovation was concluded in 2008. The objective, a luxury vacation house with lots of character using original materials where possible, seems to be well achieved. Meanwhile their houses have obtained more than 90 reviews on 8 different portal sites with an average score of 9.8 out of 10. Please ask for the links.
