About Edward Day

We are Canadians and spend a number of months every year in the house.

Why Edward Day chose Cotignac

This is an old farm with charm and comfort, showing old beams in the ceiling, thick stone walls, beautifully decorated in Provencal style, located in beautiful Provence with magnificent weather, lovely wineries, excellent restaurants, outstanding scenery, and interesting things to see in close vicinity.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Close enough to the coast for day trips, as well as places such as Avignon and Aix-en-Provence. The Luberon is not far. Lovely restful garden in the French style.

A very attractive, comfortable, and interesting place to stay.
