The Location

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

The house is in the heart of Cabrieres d'Avignon, one of the less-visited and more authentic villages 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-en-Provence, Nimes, Pont du Gard, Gorges du Verdon, Les Baux de Provence, 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.

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.

A week in Provence

My cousin booked Mas de Cabrieres for family to stay in for my Uncle and Aunt's 60th wedding anniversary. Myself and 3 siblings and our partners from three continents and my 91 year old spent a wonderful week in this spectacular home. It had everything and more than we needed and was exceptionally well looked after and well equipped. The owner even called us all the way from Sweden to check everything was in order - what a wonderful gesture. The village and surrounding area was a wonderful place to explore and there were lots of books in the house to guide us. We would definitely return and would recommend the house and area to others. Everything one needed in terms of shops and restaurants was very close by. We also loved our morning runs in the area. THANK YOU FOR A GREAT STAY

An enchanting stay

We returned from Cabrières enchanted by our stay in this beautiful home, and in this beautiful and well preserved region. We and our children fell in love with it. The preparation of the house and the running of it made everything so easy, from first contact to handing back the keys at the moment of departure.

Perfect

This beautiful home was the base for a wonderful holiday with our UK family in the Luberon. Our hosts were fantastic providing friendly advice and ensuring we had everything we needed for the stay. The lovely village of Cabrieres d'avignon is ideally located within easy access of all the major Luberon sights, close to supermarkets and only a short drive to Avignon. We loved the market at Coustellet for its abundance of local produce and traders providing plenty of samples! Our only regret is that we couldn't stay for longer....highly recommended!
