About the Property

3 br, 2.5 baths, antique furniture, gourmet kitchen, walk to Opera, Papal Palace

Our perfectly located, beautifully furnished and fully renovated townhouse in Provence will be available for rent through the 2016 summer vacation.

RESERVE NOW FOR THE 2016 AVIGNON INTERNATIONAL THEATER FESTIVAL.

The house is on a quiet street, just steps from Avignon's bustling center and famous ramparts. Bakeries, butcher shops, greengrocers, Asian markets, the central post office and train station, numerous banks, schools, the university and even the Avignon Opera and the historic Papal Palace (to say nothing of the famous "pont" of "Sur le pont d'Avignon..." fame) are all within easy walking distance.

The neighbors are friendly and helpful. The tinkling fountain adds a relaxing note to the shaded courtyard. And there is FREE PARKING, a big plus for travelers who'll be renting a car, and an amenity not available at most rental properties within the town walls.

We love the fact that our house faces south and is bathed on all three levels with warm, natural light. Ceilings are high, windows are tall.


The fully-equipped, open kitchen has custom cabinets, a 5-burner range, a dishwasher and an American-style refrigerator with ice maker and filtered water dispenser.

Most of the furniture and light fixtures are Art Deco style from the 1930's. Nothing from IKEA! Mattresses, linens and towels are all virtually new.

Two of the bedrooms have full-sized beds; one has twin beds. On the second floor there is a large bath with claw foot tub,pedestal sink and shower. The toilet is separate. On the third floor there is a smaller full bath with shower.

Washer, dryer and and small "summer kitchen" are in the basement with direct access to the courtyard.

The shady courtyard has a small fountain that runs in the summer and fall, adding a romantic touch to outdoor meals.

Location

50 Miles
Nearest Airport
Marseille

Car: Not Necessary

Avignon is in the heart of Provence and the Côtes du Rhone wine region. It is most famous for the Palace of the Popes and the summer theater festival; but offers restaurants, museums, art movies, hikes, antiquing and concerts (including Opera) year-round. St. Remy de Provence, Les Baux, Arles and the Camargue beaches and bird preserve are all nearby to the south. The Roman theater in Orange is an easy drive to the north, as are Chateauneuf du Pape, Vaison la Romaine, Fontaine de Vaucluse and well-known wine towns such as Seguret and Rasteau. The incredible Roman aqueduct, the Pont du Gard, is just across the river to the east, as is our favorite family run winery.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We moved to Avignon in 2011 so our children would learn another culture and another language. Woody is a retired school administrator, Pauline a doctor and writer.

Why the Owner Chose Avignon, France:
We chose Avignon for its sunny climate, rich cultural opportunities and convenient location. The Marseille airport is just an hour away by car or train. Paris only about 4 hours by fast train. All the famous attractions of Provence are easily accessible by car. And we chose the house for its old world charm, its natural light and its perfect location.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Walk to everything!
