Overview

Avignon House Rental Photos and Description

Private Estate between Uzes and Avignon, Provence - Peaceful Location, set in lovely gardens with two swimming pools, overlooking valley of vineyards.

This secluded hillside estate between Uzes and Avignon provides an ideal holiday location for those wishing to explore the rich history and culture of the region, or to relax and enjoy the sunshine, food and scenery. It is in the heart of the Cotes du Rhone wine-growing region with many famous vineyards only a short drive away. There are many sporting activities available locally, including canoeing, horseback riding, biking, golf and river swimming. The best of Roman France is within easy reach. The magnificent town of Uzes (with its renowned markets) is 30 less than 30 minutes drive away. Sites such as Nimes (one hour drive), Avignon (45 minutes drive), the Pont du Gard (30 minutes), Orange (30 minutes). Saint Castor is situated on the border of the picturesque Ceze valley and is a short drive from the spectacular gorge of the Ardeche. Slightly further afield are the towns of Saint Remy de Provence, Les Beaux, Arles, and Vaison les Romaine. Saint Castor is very well situated to visit all the major sights in the South of France. Beautiful Mediterranean beaches are just over an hours drive as well. There are numerous medieval villages in close proximity to the property. Here you can buy a vast array of local produce from olives and olive oil to local honey and lavender. You will find everything you might need to prepare Mediterranean dishes during your stay as well as gifts to take home.

Saint Castor is a calm oasis in the heart of the countryside. Backed by old woodland and overlooking a valley of vineyards we are a short stroll from the hamlet of Megier. There are lovely walks all around the property.

About James O'Brien

James and Deborah O'Brien found Saint Castor seventeen years ago when they moved from London to France. Their two children, now 15 and 13, were both born and raised here. We live in our own house on the estate and are always around to offer advice on sightseeing, wine tasting, markets and ideas for places to visit.

James O'Brien purchased this house in 1998

Why James O'Brien chose Avignon

This is a beautiful part of France and Saint Castor is in a tranquil valley surrounded by woods and vineyards. Peaceful and relaxing.

What makes this house unique

Exceptional views, peace and tranquility. A chance to meet other people while staying here but more than enough space for everyone to have their own space and quiet if preferred.
