The Domaine de La Garde is situated in the heart of the county of Avignon. The town of Avignon is famous for the Palais des Papes but it is also the centre of the Côtes du Rhône wine region. The world renowned Chateauneuf du Pape is only 16km from Sarrians. The climate and the quality of the water table have transformed the area into the 'Garden of France', famous for its tasty fruit and vegetables, most notably the delicious strawberries from Carpentras. Sarrians finds itself in the plains, a quarter of an hour away from the Dentelles de Montmirail. Footpaths allow for a perfect walk with a beautiful panorama of the whole plain and the wonderful villages of Gigondas, Beaume de Venise and Vacqueras, also well renowned for their wine of quality.
The giant of the region is the Mont Ventoux stands at 1912 metres, overlooking the region that is rich in agriculture and history. Perfect for a bike ride, this mountain remains famous for its challenging climb that has made and broken many a Tour de France. You will also be able to cycle on 26km of cycle routes, from Sarrians to Jonquieres, all the while safely benefiting from the breath taking views and scenery. Horse-riding is something of a local pass-time, we recommend Les Ecuries du Mas de la Garde, neighbouring the Domaine de la Garde. You will find there Aline Souriou, a qualified equestrian, who specialises in the relationship between rider and horse. From ponies to Anglo Arabians, from beginner to a confirmed horseman, all horse lovers alike will be able to indulge in their passion. The banks of the Ouveze are close by, where you will cross horse riders and cyclists at just a 2 minute drive. We provide a brochure upon your arrival with ample information on the richness and treasures of the region. If arriving from the South (TGV in Avignon or by plane from Marignane Aix-Marseille Airport), take exit 23 on the A7 (Avignon Nord/Carpentras) and expect a 15 minute drive; and if arriving from the North, take exit 22 on the A7 (Carpentras/Sarrians) with a further 210 minute drive the the Domaine de la Garde
This place is highly recommended for vacations together with families. A huge garden with a very nice pool area, very pleasant Owner who made our stay very enjoyable and lots of shadow spots under lovely trees. We had our own terrace where we had breakfast every morning, it was private and calm which we enjoyed very much. The area is full of nice spots to explore, like avignon or the chateau neuf du pape area. The house is in excellent condition, Internet is also provided and worked well, the kitchen has all equipment one would expect in a modern enviroment.
Special thanks to the Owner Alexia again who was very helpful and kind. Within 30km, there are numerous places to visit, the town Sarrains can be visited by bike or even on foot (25min). Hope we will be back!
I had a fantastic time together with my family in this property. Owner was very helpful and friendly,helped us for all our requests. Property is decorated with a nice taste and it is very clean.The property is so big that everyone had their own privacy. The garden is really big and kids enjoyed it a lot. I highly recommend this property for a nice quiet vacation.
we spent our summer in this beautiful Domaine and had a fantasic time - we never wanted to go back but had to at some point
Our stay at Domaine de la Garde was awesome. The booking and check-in was extremely stress free. The agent made sure we had all info and there was no waiting at check-in. Moreover, the agent kept us well informed and even called to check on us - even though we were on the beach when he called. We found the Domaine to be immaculate with plenty of fresh linens and supplies. We had a party of 8 including my husband and myself, two sons, one daughter-in-law and two small children. The lay out of the bedrooms and bathrooms gave us all the privacy we needed. The location next door to the pool was the icing on the cake. The young children really enjoyed the pool and it was so easy to access it. The kitchen was completely stocked with anything we needed. We cooked all out meals there except for one lunch at Sarrians. The location with the view on the beautiful french landscape from the house were unbelievable. We did eat breakfast on the porch. We spent most of the time at the pool or in the garden. My son and his wife did take the children to a provence tour with fourwheelers and we played golf. Other than that, we did not leave the area. There were enough beach toys and chairs for anything you would dream of. The home, porches, and walkways were well maintained.
We will definitely recommend this home to friends and family and will choose this home over others when we have another chance to stay in this area. It is very safe for the children and all traffic is other guests and homeowners. We love Provence. This is our 3rd stay in France, but the first in this Domaine. Thanks!
We visited Domaine de la Garde in July 2014 and is a wonderful property in Avignon in the South East of France. Great value for money for a property of such class in the Provence region of France where we have visited numerous times. We went as a family, 2 adults and 2 teenagers which is sometimes tricky to find a villa which can suit all. We did not have this problem however, the kids loved the pool, where we spent most of our day lazing around enjoying the sun. The property is ideally located, extremely close to the local shops; we even managed to go for a bike ride one morning, it was just perfect! Hats off to Private Properties who made the booking of our vacation (which I usually dread organizing) as easy and straightforward as possible, with no hassle. They were extremely informative and would definitely be booking with them again. The pictures were also spot on, exactly what you see with no hidden surprises. George from London.
Nous avons loué cette maison au mois d’avril sur le site Abritel pour la première semaine d’août.
J’insiste sur le terme « maison » puisque c’est ainsi qu’elle était proposée à la location. Pour être tout à fait certain de notre choix, j’ai demandé par mail à l’agence en charge de la location si l’accès à la piscine était bien privatif, j’ai reçu confirmation en retour.
Sachez qu’il ne s’agit pas d’une maison mais d’un gite, la piscine n’est absolument pas privative puisqu’elle est à partager avec d’autres locataires.
L’annonce sur le site d’Abritel a été modifiée dès le lendemain, le type de location est passé de « maison » à « appartement », une mention « piscine commune » a été ajoutée, les six vélos de la première annonce ramenés au chiffre réel de deux.
Depuis, la mention « piscine privée » a été remis.
This was a good choice for us, two families 7 persons all together. The property was just as we expected, nice and clean and equipped with
everything we needed. The pool area was great with grill and fridge/ice cubes, the pool and water nice and clean. Chairs and recliners for everyone. The area was nice and quiet, 5 min by car to supermarket and local village.
The apartment filled all our needs and was well equipped and furnished.
The owner was always available if we needed anything or just for giving us advice for places to see and visit. Wine areas etc.
We would absolutely recommend this place, we and the kids really enjoyed our stay :-)))
