Greg and Laura are both architects by training and fell in love with the view, so they decided to build their dream house there in 2009. We are now expatriates living in Vietnam with our 2 boys, where Greg is Managing Director for a construction materials subsidiary of a multinational company.

We return to our villa frequently during the year and hope that you will enjoy this little piece of peaceful paradise as much as we do!

Great location and stunning view!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, our two children (ages 5 and 7), and my parents stayed here for a week. The house is beautiful, well stocked, and walking distance to a market. The rooms were tastefully decorated and very comfortable. We took many day trips - Avignon was only 10 minutes by car and Bedoin (famous Monday Market) was about 45 minutes away.

It was is the perfect rental for two families to share. The master suite had a huge walk in closet and private bathroom. Our children squealed with delight when they discovered their room had children's toys for them to enjoy during our stay. There was even an office/bedroom that I used to do some work during our stay. The wifi worked wonderfully, which made working easy.

The kitchen was spacious and allowed us to cook meals as a family. We even used the Weber BBQ outside a couple of times. The kitchen had all of the amenities that I could have asked for as a cook. One tip for families traveling from the states: bring your own cloth shopping bags. I brought one, but I wished I had brought a few as the store charges for plastic bags and they are not as comfortable to hold when walking the short distance back to the rental.

As nice as the house was, the backyard was definitely the highlight of this beautiful rental. Our kids enjoyed hours in the pool swimming each and every day. In fact, it was hard to get them out of the pool in the evenings! The back yard has a grassy area, a gorgeous collection of lavender bushes, and an incredible view of Villeneuve les Avignon and the fort there. Our kids enjoyed walking through the lavender to look at all of the insects and at night we sat on the lounge chairs enjoying the sunset with a glass of wine in hand.

I have to thank Gregory and Laura for responding so quickly to my emails. The World Cup was on and I was having trouble accessing the channel. Within an hour of sending my email, Gregory had responded and I was able to watch the games! I appreciate how quick he was to respond to every email I sent.

Fantastic rental with responsive renters!

Lovely stay in gorgeous location

  • 5 of 5
We were three adults and a baby - a first family holiday together with help from my mum.

The property was lovely, well maintained, with everything you could need and views to die for. The information provided was thorough, accurate and everything you could need. The local pizza restaurant, while looking unassuming, does indeed make delicious pizzas!

We loved the location, the space, the vista, being on the edge of a quiet residential area with supermarket moments away but with an uninterrupted view of Avignon and beyond.

Although early in the season and with variable weather, we enjoyed the pool, pool area and BBQ. Most rooms open up onto the pool area which was a lovely touch.

The interior is very well laid out and equipped for formal dining or casual relaxing. An impressive collection of toys too in the children's room.

We had a fabulous stay and would highly recommend this venue for families. It's a great base in its own right and for exploring Avignon and beyond. We were very happy.

Superb Location, Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5
We had a great holiday at this fantastic villa. From the greeting on the arrival day to the farewell on departure. Although we did not speak a lot of French we could communicate well with our hosts, everything about the villa was explained well and we were made to feel welcome. The villa it's self was very clean and spacious. Views from the garden overlooking Avignon were a delight day and night. As a large family group the villa suited our needs, children's toys in the bedroom were a great hit. the pool area was a good size with areas to get in the shade if required, which was good for the children. The added benefit of the pool cover meant that did not have to worry about the children in the pool area if the cover was on. Gregory was very helpful during the booking process, answering all of our questions promptly. Local supermarket and bakery were a few minuets walk away meaning you did not have go far for anything. local area is fantastic, the adults wished we had more time to explore!. A trip to the popes palace and castle is a must. A trip to the coast is a bit of drive, but well worth it. We went to Saints Maries de la Mer which had great shallow areas created using rocks. One word of warning be careful where you park we parked in what we thought was a free car park off the main road and got a parking ticket from the municipal police in Saints Maries. Although annoyed to start with, it was nothing to how annoyed we got trying to pay the fine. It could not be paid at the police station, but rather you have to pay by cheque (from French bank account) or buy a timbre fiscal stamp, stick on the slip and post using normal postage stamp. We eventually found out that the timbre fiscal stamps could only be purchased from a tabac store. However ten tabac stores later still no stamp, as they did not sell them. We did eventually find a tabac/cafe near the flying horses ride in Avignon which did sell them! Be warned although our fine was only 13 euro it would have doubled if not paid within 45 days. Depending on the severity of the fine you could end up paying 325 euro and if not paid your hire car company WILL pay it and charge a fee. As you may be able to tell, this did spoil a great holiday. Having 3 young children in our group we only ate out once at the aubergine restaurant which was lovely and did children's food as well, wished we had gone again. In summery, great villa, great location, great holiday, watch where you park!

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to welcome the Canham family from the UK, and we are very glad they enjoyed their stay at our villa, despite the annoying parking ticket episode at the beach!

Magnifique propriété idéalement située

  • 4 of 5
Nous avons passé un sejour très agréable en famille dans cette magnifique villa, en effet, celle-ci comporte beaucoup de points positifs et pratiques.
La villa est très moderne et bien entretenue, la vue sur le palais des papes est magique. Les chambres sont belles et la cuisine et les équipements très corrects. La piscine est aussi bien entretenue et toujours bien ensoleillée
Elle est idéalement située à quelques kilomètres seulement d'Avignon. Le petite ville de Villeneuve-lez-Avignon est aussi très sympa avec une petite place et une fontaine au mileu très pratique pour aller prendre un verre ou manger avec des enfants...Il y a aussi un supermarché proche de la villa ce qui facilite aussi lesdéplacements. Nous avons aussi beaucoup apprécié le fait que la villa disposait de nombreux jeux pour enfants !! nos petits loups ont donc pu sans cesse s'amuser et ca c'etait une chouette suprise.

Perfection

  • 5 of 5
Where to start, the villa was immaculate, location perfect and the service flawless. As a family we couldn't have asked for more everything we could possibly need was there, from toys for the children to a lounge with an idilic view for us to the pool for us all. We were able to visit many of the areas attractions and nothing seemed to far away, even the beautiful Camarge was easily reachable.

A massive thank you from us all for making our summer break a truly unforgettable and proper holiday.

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
This is an absolutely wonderful villa in the heart of Provence. The property is identical to the photos and even better. The rooms are spacious and the living room with its large window overlooking the Pope's Palace in Avignon is a view that takes your breath away.So relaxing at night with the lights twinkling in the distance. It was immaculate and the pool area is private and extremely quiet. The kitchen is stocked with all the pans etc that are needed to prepare meals there. The sitting area where we had our meals overlooked the pool as the glass windows bought the outside into the interior. Communication with the owner was extremely timely and he answered our questions and concerns right away. He was very helpful and patient as we did have many. I truly appreciated this as coming such a long distance one may have concerns with the whole process but don't hesitate. The manager that met us was so pleasant and just a joy!!! One in our party spoke French and that helped when we arrived. We stayed 2 weeks and mid through our stay they came in and did a linen change and cleaned even though I cleaned throughout the stay as it is a property that one respects. There is a variety of stores nearby and a Carrefour Market that we frequented daily. The center of Villeneuve is a quaint medieval village. We had a wonderful meal at I believe was called Le Mougin?? which has live Jazz music on Friday evenings. All in all I would highly recommend this property for all the stated reason plus the central location to tour the region. The wineries are abundant in Provence but there is an absolute favorite in Tavel that produces AOC wines and the Rose is phenomenal. It is Domaine de la Mordoree- don't miss going there as it is also so close.
Just be patient on your first trip to finding the villa. Our GPS sent us down alleys etc but it did give us lots of laughs. My only negative is that I hated to leave and end the stay.

The Festival d'Avignon, a world-renown dynamic and diverse Arts and Theater festival, boasts hundreds of productions and many more fringes in the stunning mediaval city during the month of July.

Villeneuve-les-Avignon town center is 5 min away from our villa. Avignon is 8 min drive. Nimes and Isle-sur-la-Sorgue are 30 min. Aix-en-Provence is 50 min.

Of all the regions of France, Provence is one of the most irresistible, renown for its mild winters and long summer days.

Whether you are interested in wine (Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas and Cotes du Rhone), history (Avignon, Orange, Pont du Gard), natural history (Luberon National Park with its famous villages, Mont Ventoux, Camargue), art (Cezanne orginally comes from Aix en Provence, Van Gogh is associated with Arles), sport (something for everyone, including the internationally renowned ascent of the Mont Ventoux on your bike!) or food, there is something for everyone.

Coast/Beaches of Carry le Rouet, Cassis and Saintes Maries de la Mer are all within 100km, with mostly motorway access.

Golf of Châteaublanc is 15 km away. So is the Golf Grand Avignon. Other golf courses in the area include Isle-sur-la-Sorgue (30km)

Many places have cultural festivals including Opera in Aix en Provence and Orange, theatre in Avignon and Jazz/piano in La Roque d'Antheron during the summer months.

Villeneuve-les-Avignon is a lovely Provencal village where you can buy your baguette and croissants at one of the two local boulangeries, meat and staples at the small supermarket, mouth watering cakes and chocolates at the patisserie, and delicious fruit and vegetables from the farmers market held on Thursday mornings. Avignon and Villeneuve have many authentic restaurants and cafes. L'Isle sur la Sorgue, Le Pont-du-Gard, St-Remy de Provence, les Baux-de-Provence and Nimes with their antiques market, restaurants, watermills are all about 40 min away.
