The Location

Cabrieres d'Avignon has all the amenities of a small Provencal village, without the crowds.

The house is 800m (half a mile) from Cabrieres d'Avignon, an authentic and less-visited village in the beautiful Luberon region. The honey-coloured centre of the village is self-sufficient with a small grocery store, a really good baker, a butcher, and a decent restaurant - Le Vieux Bistrot. Also very close is Coustellet with its shops, restaurants, and famous Sunday morning farmers' market.

Five minutes away is the better known village of Gordes, and it is a short drive to the other beautiful hill-top villages of the Luberon: Menerbes, Bonnieux, Lacoste, Roussillon, Oppede-le-vieux, etc.

Isle sur la Sorgue, the antiques capital of France is close by, as is the stunning Fontaine de Vaucluse, where the Sorgue emerges from the ground.

This is an ideal base for exploring further afield: Avignon, Arles, St Remy, Aix, Nimes, Pont du Gard, Gorges du Verdon, Les Baux, Marseille, the Camargue and the Cote d'Azur are all within easy reach.

There are hikes right from the door of the house exploring the surrounding countryside, or you can go by mountain bike. Village markets take place in a different village each day of the week, including the excellent farmers' market in Coustellet on Sunday mornings, which is 5 minutes away.

The Luberon is the blessed plot of Provence characterised by vineyards, olive groves and fruit orchards, specked with perched villages, that held Peter Mayle in its thrall when he wrote A Year in Provence here. It is also where Russell Crowe inherited a vineyard in the movie A Good Year.

Just relax

With 3 generations we have spent wonderful holidays in the house. It offers a lot of space, is very well equipped and very nicely furnished. The pool area was used very much by us in the hot temperatures. We will come back again with pleasure. Thanks also for the great support from Christine and Nadia.

Relaxing break in beautiful surroundings

The property is conveniently located just 40 minutes from Avignon so very easy to access. We were a group of 2 families and the 5 bedroom/5 bathroom layout worked extremely well for us. The property was a great size, clean, well laid out and beautifully decorated; exactly as per the photos. It was very well equipped and the location was very peaceful. It was very hot when we stayed so the pool was the main attraction. The sloping entrance was great and you could just sit in the water to keep cool if necessary. The area itself is beautiful. We didn't venture far but the cedar forest in the village is worth a wander and the nearby village of L'isle Sur La Sorgue was fantastic (a visit to the partage des eaux is a must). The local bakery in the village was lovely and had an excellent selection of items. The most relaxing holiday we've ever had. The property owner (Christine) was very responsive to all of my questions (thank you!). Would recommend.
