"This huge apartment on two levels was perfect for our family. Modern secure building with elevator (and gated parking lot) tucked into the historic center of town. Totally private second floor walled terrace, in the Provencal style, dine or sunbathe on it. 2nd floor is actually elevator accessible too if stairs are a problem. Walk out the door to historic square, get your morning croissant and daily baguette at boulangerie across the street. Owner Pat recommends the best restaurants in town, we had really fabulous meals out, or cook yourselves---shop with locals for fresh veggies, cheese, fish, meat, from the small markets on the street. Very well stocked kitchen, with staples, and lovely new dishes and glasses, cutlery, pans. Pat is wonderful to work with, e-mail her with any questions, she answers immediately. We used the washer, it's a wonderful plus to be able to do laundry, and the separate half bath on 1st floor makes everything easier with a few people. Big bath (tub, shower, bidet) upstairs next to bedrooms, with toilet in separate room, is convenient too for a few people. Big comfortable bed in master BR, with French doors to terrace and second BR's twin beds make it easy with kids. Pat has a local agent meet you there with keys, she's a good resource. This was our 5th VRBO and we are very, very happy with our choice. Excellent value. Cavaillon was the perfect central location in Provence for exploring---off main highways, not far to huge TGV train station outside Avignon and SO easy to drive everywhere in Provence within an hour, even Marseille airport and Camargue and the Mediterranean. And Cavaillon is a beautiful town---not a trendy village but a real town with friendly people, historic walks, a tourist info. office, big food stores on edge of town. Climb up stone stairs to top of spectacular cliffs (which you see from apartment terrace!) overlooking town for views of Provence. We loved it there and would love to go back."
