Avignon villa description

La Lavande du Plein Soleil is a lovely renovated villa, open and breezy with air conditioning, a fully-equipped outdoor summer kitchen in addition to the interior 'cuisine americaine', four-meter by eight-meter private pool, and newly built guest house with its own bedroom, shower and toilet.

It is situated in a perfect location in Provence: the heart of lavender country, Cotes du Rhone wine and a truly magnificent cuisine, subtly blending traditional French cuisine with those of Italy and Spain. Lovely gardens surround the private pool, including cypress trees, palm trees, and a cornucopia of fragrant and brilliant roses.

Just 20 minutes from Avignon, home of the Papal palace, 30 minutes to Arles, where Van Gogh did much of his painting, and a host of other spectacular sights and activities within an hour, from mountain climbing to swimming and boating in the Mediterranean to golfing, cycling and horseback riding. Forty-five minutes to Aix-en-Provence, two hours to Nice, three hours to Italy, four hours to Barcelona Spain or Lake Geneva in Switzerland. Truly a limitless vacation experience.

                      Car: Necessary

                      Mont Ventoux is well known in France and is often included in the Tour de France bicycle race.

                      The Lac de Monteux offers family water fun less than ten minutes from the villa.

                      Go Kart racing is available five minutes from the villa

                      The Friday Market in Carpentras (six miles away) is the largest and best known in the area. This is a must-see.

                      The Pont du Gard is a UNESCO recognized monument which is over 2000 years old and is a remnant of a Roman aqueduct that carried water to Nimes.

                      Cassis is the westernmost beach of the French Rivieara and is located about 90 minutes by car.

                      The Palace of the Popes in Avignon housed the papacy in the fourteenth century when political infighting in Rome forced the Pope to seek refuge in France.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2002

                      About the owner: Jo Ann and I have traveled throughout Europe for more than 30 years. In late 2001 we decided to buy a place in Europe as our base for retirement travel. We have been delighted by the amazing sights and experiences available in this part of France as well as the incredible food and wines. Our little town of Sarrians has over 20 vineyards alone!

                      Why the Owner Chose Avignon:
                      Location, location, location. We are four hours from Barcelona, four hours from Lake Geneva, three hours from italy and a quick two hour TGV ride from Paris. Additionally, the people, cuisine, wines and weather in southern France are both absolutely fabulous.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      Herb garden available to guests; we plant a vegetable garden for guests each year; a fig tree on the property provides fresh figs; secluded walled property provides privacy while still being a five minute walk from a charming village with the typical boulangeries, patisseries, boucheries and more, and a two minute drive from a supermarket.
