Cavaillon apartment description

Sunny, bright and spacious, 2-bedroom apartment on 2 levels with a terrace in a small, quiet building in central Cavaillon, just steps from one of the largest weekly markets in Provence. Right across the street is a boulangerie and a fruitière, along with a bank and a pharmacy and a wonderful cheese shop 2 short blocks away. There are at least 3 wonderful restaurants within a 5 minute walk from our apartment.

The apartment is equipped with air-conditioning and an elevator. The main bedroom has a large queen bed with French doors leading to the terrace; the 2nd bedroom has 2 twin beds and a skylight. There is a double foldout sofa in the living room for additional guests.The bedrooms are on the 2nd level along with a full bathroom (with shower and bathtub) and a toilet. There is a toilet as well on the 1st level. You can dine on our large, sunny and completely private terrace as well. The terrace is equipped with a large table with 6 chairs and a sun umbrella along with 4 deck chairs and 2 sun loungers.

The living/dining room and kitchen are on the 1st level. And there is lots of storage space in cupboards on both levels.

Please Note: Due to the stairs, the apartment is not suitable for children under the age of 5

Cavaillon is centrally located in the Vaucluse region of Provence only 20 kms from Avignon, 55 kms from Aix-en-Provence, 60 kms from Marseille and the international airport and just a short drive from St. Remy de Provence, Arles (of van Gogh fame), Apt and L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue.

You can visit the picturesque villages of the Luberon - Menerbes (featured in Peter Mayle’s book, 'A Year in Provence') and the stunning hilltop villages of Gordes, Bonnieux, Goult and Roussillon all of which are within a 30-minute drive away as are many local wineries. Cannes, St. Tropez and the Riviera are an easy 2 hour drive away along the Autoroute de Soleil (A7) which is conveniently accessible from Cavaillon and the Autoroute 8.

Paris is only 2 and 1/2 hours away by the TGV (high-speed train) from Avignon.

Cavaillon (pop. 23,000) is somewhat off the beaten tourist track but that's one of the reasons we like it so much. The people here are very friendly and extremely tolerate of my less-than-perfect French. It is home to a 16th century Synagogue (now a museum), a 2000 year-old Roman arch, and many other archeological sites of interest. Every Monday morning, Cavaillon hosts one of the largest markets in Provence on the street literally at the end of our parking entrance. You will also find upscale women's clothing stores, shoe stores, and a linen store all within 5 minutes of the apartment. I do most of my clothes shopping here even though we are close to the larger centres like Avignon and Aix.

                          Manager info

                          Year Purchased: 2008

                          About: We are a Canadian couple, from the Ottawa area, who have fulfilled a dream of owning a place in the south of France. We have traveled extensively and love this part of the country. We are planning to spend 3 to 4 months a year in Cavaillon when we retire in a few years' time. In the meantime, we try to visit at least 2 times a year. We love the fact that we can decide on the spur of the moment to go have a coffee in Aix (for example) and be there in under 45 minutes. Or take a quick (20 minutes) trip to St Remy de Provence to visit the van Gogh museum.

                          Why Cavaillon:
                          The climate, food and scenery is wonderful in the south of France. Our city, Cavaillon, is close to the perched villages of the Luberon (like Menerbes and Gordes) as well as cities like Avignon, Aix-en-Provence, St Remy de Provence, Arles, and only 2.5 hrs away from Cannes and Nice. We're also very close to Barcelona (4 hr drive) and the Marseille International Airport which means we have easy access to European and African countries. And Paris is only 2.5 hrs away by TGV. The city is small (23,000) and not 'touristy' at all which is nice since you get a feel for living in a real Provence city. We find the people of Cavaillon extremely gracious and very kind: I speak very basic French yet I have always felt welcomed by the residents of Cavaillon and the neighbouring towns of Menerbes, St Remy and Avignon.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                          We are able to walk across the street each morning to buy a baguette at the Patisserie and we are within a 5-10 minute walk of many gourmet restaurants. We're just a 10-minute walk to the train station (where there is a great pizza place) and the 2 cinemas in town (the movies are all recent; sometimes they are in English with French subtitles.) We are about 50 feet away from one of the largest weekly markets in Provence: it's a great way to spend the morning. The market runs down both sides of our street from top to bottom and literally everything you can imagine is for sale - fruits, vegetables, housewares, clothes, soaps, sausages, spices...Even though our apartment is centrally located, we find it very quiet at night.
