There is a massive amount of space and a very secluded garden. The house has everything you could possibly need, lots of thought gone into the stocking of it's contents. We had regular contact with the owner who could not do enough to help us and was easily accessible for any queries. The only tiny negative thing was that the extensive amount of tourist information at the house was in French. All in all an excellent property which made for an brilliant holiday in Provence.

Really enjoyed meeting Jean-Paul and Beatrice and staying in their beautiful home near to Avignon. House was spotless and really well laid out ... pool was perfect and much-used in the 30* C sunshine that bathed the region for the week. Fantastic location with plenty to do for all the family - Villeneuve-lez-Avignon and Avignon itself and both beautiful and steeped in history but are modern towns with the right amount of supermarkets, banks, shops and restaurants. For cycling fans, the local area was quiet, scenic and hilly ... with Mont Ventoux (which can be seen all day and night from pretty much every window of the house) in approx. 50km away if you are feeling properly adventurous!
