La Lavande du Plein Soleil is a lovely renovated villa, open and breezy with a fully-equipped outdoor summer kitchen in addition to the interior 'cuisine americaine', four-meter by eight-meter private pool, and newly built guest house with its own bedroom, shower and toilet.
It is situated in a perfect location in Provence: the heart of lavender country, Cotes du Rhone wine and a truly magnificent cuisine, subtly blending traditional French cuisine with those of Italy and Spain. Lovely gardens surround the private pool, including cypress trees, palm trees, and a cornucopia of fragrant and brilliant roses.
Just 20 minutes from Avignon, home of the Papal palace, 30 minutes to Arles, where Van Gogh did much of his painting, and a host of other spectacular sights and activities within an hour, from mountain climbing to swimming and boating in the Mediterranean to golfing, cycling and horseback riding. Forty-five minutes to Aix-en-Provence, two hours to Nice, three hours to Italy, four hours to Barcelona Spain or Lake Geneva in Switzerland. Truly a limitless vacation experience.

Jo Ann and I have traveled throughout Europe for more than 30 years. In late 2001 we decided to buy a place in Europe as our base for retirement travel. We have been delighted by the amazing sights and experiences available in this part of France as well as the incredible food and wines. Our little town of Sarrians has over 20 vineyards alone!
Location, location, location. We are four hours from Barcelona, four hours from Lake Geneva, three hours from italy and a quick two hour TGV ride from Paris. Additionally, the people, cuisine, wines and weather in southern France are both absolutely fabulous.
Herb garden available to guests; we plant a vegetable garden for guests each year; a fig tree on the property provides fresh figs; secluded walled property provides privacy while still being a five minute walk from a charming village and a two minute drive from a supermarket.
