Memorable Family Vacation
Our family spent 2 weeks at La Caumino and our experience in this beautifully renovated 19th century stone house will always be a memorable family vacation. The owners have spent much time and insight into making this house comfortable with quality furnishings. The home is well equipped for dining with modern appliances and bbq equipment. The outdoor patio is perfect for relaxing over breakfast, having an aperitif, or al fresco dining. The pool is great for relaxing with a lovely view of the Luberon. The owners have recently planted grass and flowers so the garden is beautiful. The beds were very comfortable with high quality linens and there were 3 and a half baths. The excellent laundry facilities were appreciated. The first week we had our grandchildren and they enjoyed an Easter egg hunt in the garden area, playing frozen tag, and loup. One can also take walks from the house. There is a park in nearby Cabrieres d'Avignon that is excellent for children and picnics. Location of this home is one of the reasons we chose it. The house is easily accessible coming from the north on the A-7 and driving from the Marseilles airport. It is also close to lovely villages like L'Isle sur la Sorgues, Gordes, Bonnieux, and Menerbes. We also visited Saignon (near Apt) and found the village of Caseneuve where we had a wonderful dinner at the Sanglier Paresseux. Lourmarin, Lacoste, and Ansouis are within 30-40 minute driving distance. A trip to the Pont du Gard, Vaison la Romain Tues market, Gigondas, Rasteau are all about 55 min. There is an excellent boucherie, boulangerie, and a convenient Super U in Coustellet...3 minutes. The Sunday market in L'Isle Sur la Sorgues is a must but the Sunday market in Coustellet, though smaller, has everything you need. Also, there is a lavender museum in Coustellet worth a visit if you like lavender and are interested in the distilling process. We shopped at the lavender boutique for soaps, essential oils, creams, and perfume. La Caumino is spacious, has a great tv dvd system. The satellite includes English stations and we watched Prince William and Kate say their vows. The wifi works everywhere- upstairs, on the patio, by the pool. Photos can be downloaded and sent off to relatives and friends. Edith and Vincent Rondot responded quickly to emails and were very helpful at organizing our stay at their home. La Caumino was a superb holiday rental and we would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a vacation home in beautiful Provenc
