Viola! Pefect location in Provence *Villeneuve les Avignon-the best kept secret in France! Walk to Restaurants (lots of them!), Shopping, Centre Ville- the square, Historical sites and this is the just a start! You are just across the Rhone River,from Avignon and the Palais du Pape but Villeneuve is a magical place to enjoy all of Provence. A 14th Century Cardinals Palace and now your home for exploring and having the most for your trip! Live like you live here! The splendor of having it all on your Provence experience is here! It makes dreams come true....just ask me!
Your days start with heading to the village or city of your choice - explore, see the sites, have midi-dejeune and then head home, to nap, read in the garden or just catch up with yourself. Or perhaps a short walk around the corner for a cafe, panachie or french rose to enjoy the sights, sounds of a laid back village going about its busines? Being a part of this is the most amazing discovery of your trip.
Stopping by the Presse for your post cards, they remember you from day to day, as does the butcher (lovely meats-just point!), Fruits & Vegtables lady, the amazing bakery-that has macaroons to make you go every day-the bread and pastries- fresh -Just for You! English if somewhat stilted is everywhere!
The Restuarants are so delighful, they are most reasonable as it is where the locals eat too! English always found in them or practice your Francais - they are delighted to help! You will make new friends, either at the next table or
the staff! I guarantee it!
The 'maison' oh the house! Ma maison is your house...waking up in the midst of Provence with your own private garden, to have a coffee (or to walk quickly for the croissants, raison de pain or chocolate croissant FRESH from the oven-every morning!)
We live in the garden!
Fabulous kitchen with everything you could want to cook with or just serve after picking up! It is delightful to do it all!
So very nice to walk to dinner and home-needless to mention the fabulous food & wine. On the town square, or on the Rhone, the delightful ones tucked in on side streets adminst a treasured garden- a 5 minute walk...or a pick-up form the Patiserie, Boucherie or Casino (grocery store on square!).
Then the choice to have perhaps just wine & cheese after that fabulous lunch in Bistrot du Paradou outside St Remy...
It is about choices, yours!
There are days to explore including Villeneuve les Avignon, the Fort, the gardens the Chartreuse oh my goodness...on and on. Walk or take the bus to Avignon (Parking is Horendous!)explore the City, the Palais du Pape, the museums, the Place de Horlodge - wonderful Tourism Office there too! (I really like the one in Villeneuve behind the bank.) St. Remy, Les Baux, Arles, Nimes, Aix, Orange, Isle sur la Sorgue or head to the Luberons - Bonnieux, La Coste, Roussison and more charming villages to explore! Nice is coming back home.
My favorite is to make sure of the markets are going on that day in Provence. A trip to a village on market day makes it come alive and the sights, sounds & smells-always something to taste or pick-up! BEST BOOK - 'Markets of Provence', what a fabulous way to plan your days! AND one in the house in case you forgot to bring yours! Plus maps and suggested days to do when you are not sure what you want to!
Then there is the garden, to relax, enjoy and make the most of when I want to recapture my trip - it is always the time relaxing in the garden and seeing that bluest of blue skies that is difficult to describe...
I hope your trip to Provence is as fabulous as you want it to be!
