The Location

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

The house is in a country setting betweent the three Luberon villages of Cabrieres d'Avignon, Lagnes and Coustellet. The first two are typical medieval villages with bakery, grocery store, butcher and a couple of restaurants. Coustellet is the crossroads of the Luberon, a modern village with a wider range of food shops, restaurants and a supermarket.

Coustellet is also well-known for its great 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.

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.

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.

Outstanding!

We had a lovely family stay here, and found the house very comfortable and well equipped. The house is light, bright and yet full of character and the large pool and garden give plenty of room for children to play and explore. Convenient for days out both in the Luberon, Aix and Avignon, and very close to L’Isle sur la Sorgue with its markets and antiques, and the wonderful Farmers market at Coustellet is just 5 minutes away. The big views from all parts of the house don’t prepare you for how convenient the location is, with easy communication to the motorway system or to remote parts of the Luberon National Park,

Love this house

A superb old farmhouse, extremely spacious and decorated to the highest standards, managing to combine a chic look with outstanding comfort and convenience. The location is both rural but allows easy access to local amenities. The Luberon is a delightful and interesting area of southern France.
