About Sabine Thompson

I am French, born and raised in Southern France and with my English husband Nick we have been running this property for several years, first, to make wine.

Sabine Thompson purchased this villa in 2005

Why Sabine Thompson chose Cairanne

My English husband, Nick, and I, Sabine, have managed this vineyard for some twenty years. Charmed by the site, we decided to develop one part of the buildings into holiday accommodation, thus sharing our enthusiasm with our holiday guests.

What makes this villa unique

I enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of the Mas Meyeau as well as the stunning views of the surrounding hills. All this in the shade of more than a hundred year old plain-trees.

A true characterful place to be discovered.

Guestbook comments from the owner

... the best way possible!

Thank you for the views, smells, wine, your friendship and 'cave'.

We are enriched!

Wonderful villa and location

  • 5 of 5

We have searched for many years for the perfect villa for 10 people in the Vaucluse and are delighted finally to have found it! The air con makes such a difference and the villa is spacious and comfortable with everything that you could need for an enjoyable holiday. The proximity to Mont Ventoux and the Dentelles makes this an excellent location - and certainly a perfect base for exploring the fantastic wines of the region; Chateauneuf, Gigondas, Vacqueyras et al. Sabine and Nick were excellent hosts and attended to our every need.

Wonderful property in idyllic surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We stayed as a family of 10 (3 generations) for a week from the 26th May. First impressions of the property and surroundings were WOW! It's a beautiful and peaceful location, the house and grounds are huge and wonderfully presented. The owners are friendly and accommodating and the wine tour and tasting conducted by Nick is really interesting.

All 10 of our party (aged from 3-68) really enjoyed the stay. If you are looking for a beautiful and peaceful location to explore Provence, you must consider this property. The local town of Cairanne is a 10-15 minute walk away, where there is a lovely restaurant, cafe and a couple of local shops for necessities.

Great villa, great location, great hosts

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful two weeks we all had visiting southern France. What made it so much more enjoyable was our lovely villa which easily accommodated five women! Nobody had to share a bedroom😊

The villa is located in an area, close to many wonderful towns which we thoroughly enjoyed visiting, eating the French cuisine and of course, drinking the wine. After each days outing, we would return to a quiet peaceful place surrounded by beautiful countryside, grape bushes growing larger each day and amazing sunsets. Nick and Sabine could not have been better hosts. One of the gals mistakenly left her pills at home. Sabine took her to the doctor so she could get new perscriptions for the two weeks we were in France. They both checked on us to make sure we comfortable and had what we needed. They were helpful in recomending places to see and restaurants to visit. We were also lucky to taste the wines they make (very good)! If you are looking for a great place to stay at a reasonable price, you cannot go wrong staying here. C.Russell (USA)

Owner's Response: Dear Carol, Many thanks for your comments. It is true that this part of Provence, North of Vaucluse, offers beautiful landscapes. Today it is a protective and natural environment with lots of good things to discover be it good places to visit, quality restaurants, street markets or rich countryside which benefits from being explored. We are only too happy to live at the heart of it and to share this with our guests. We will be only too happy to welcome you again one day! Sabine & Nick

Great home and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. The house was great and the location was perfect for exploring nearby sights and wondering around in the countryside. Far enough out that you feel removed from it all but close enough that you can get to many amazing sights very easily. Nick and Sabine are wonderful hosts. Thanks for everything and can’t wait to return.

Roomy Accomodations in Great Location.

  • 4 of 5

The two rental houses are attached to a winery and have a connected entry to accommodate large groups. The nights are silent as it is in the middle of the vineyards. There is a large pool for summer activities. The hosts, Nick and Sabine, are very friendly and helpful. There are lots of bathrooms and good showers. The bedrooms are large and comfortable. The kitchens are large and set up for sizeable groups to dine together.

Cairanne is well situated for day trips to interesting places such as Avignon, Orange, Vaison La Romaine, and various hill towns and wine towns. There is a small grocer and a bakery in the village and it is a 10 minute drive to a larger supermarket. Hyper-marches are also available a bit further away. There are some fabulous restaurants within a 15 minute drive.

I would recommend the houses to anyone wanting to tour the area and sample wine or to families taking advantage of the pool and sun in the summer.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your kind comments John. Mas Meyeau is designed with two wings and a central entrance to provide comfort, space and a certain sense of seclusion if thought after! Two kitchens, a luxury. Within easy reach one can also discover other many interesting and reputed places, hilltops villages of the Luberon and Ventoux, historic towns such as Aix-en-Provence, Uzès or Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. The region is also forging a certain reputation for gastronomy. Last but not the least, mas Meyeau is situated on one of the most famous Rhone Valley wines routes. All the best to you and Diane.

A 60th birthday celebration I'll never forget!

  • 5 of 5

WOW!!!AMAZING!!!!! These are some of the thoughts that went through our heads as Sabine showed us around the villa for the first time. As my family (10 adults and 2 children) lazed by the pool, we were all pinching ourselves thinking "I can't believe this is ours for 2 weeks!! Honestly, the photos you see on the website do not do this magnificent property justice.

The setting of the villa is quite stunning, the house is beautifully cared for with a relaxed feel and stylish decor. Bedrooms are spacious with beautiful views from every window in the house. The kitchen is very well equipped with modern appliances and plenty of descent crockery (not the mismatch that you sometimes get).

The huge dining table was a hit too as most nights we cooked at home using the local produce purchased from the markets. The gorgeous pool and setting was a real treat to come home to after long days visiting the wineries and stunning stoned villages with their quaint little churches.

I must also mention that Nick and Sabine were very gracious hosts who went out of their way to make us feel very welcome. We thoroughly enjoyed 2 nights getting to know them and their charming youngest daughter. And last but not least, Sabine is a great cook too!

Thank you Nick and Sabine, we have all had the most memorable holiday we will never ever forget. One day we hope to return!

Cairanne is a little village situated in Provence and reputed for its wines. On our vineyard you will have the possibility to participate in Wine Tastings and Cellar Visits. Half way between Vaison-la-Romaine and Orange, two Vaucluse county's roman cities that are also worth visiting for their open street markets.

Vaison has also created a reputation for its Dance Festival in July as well as Orange for its Lyric Music Festival. Enjoy also a visit of an olive oil mill, tremendous walks in the Dentelles de Montmirail or a bicycle tour in the mont Ventoux area as well as Wine Tours and Cooking Courses.
