GREAT PROPERTY!

4 of 5
This is a lovely little cottage. We loved our stay. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything necessary. The little garden in the back yard is peaceful and private. There was one loud party until the early morning hours on the Saturday night, but unfortunately these types of things are not in the control of the owner. The location of the property is great too - just outside the craziness of the town but still in walking distance. The property manager made our stay easy and she was very helpful.

Great pool, great view, great location

5 of 5
We had a wonderful week in this property on the hills above Villeneuve-les-avignon. It was kept very clean for our arrival. The villa is very well equipped when it comes to cooking too. We had nice barbecues outside (you can see fort Saint-Jean and the palais des Papes from there. The location is great in a quiet neighbourhood, within walking distance of the bakery and supermarket. The location is central and it's a quick drive to the major attractions around Avignon, Chateauneuf-du-pape, les dentelles de Montmirail, etc. I would highly recommend this property.
