About Susan Price

We are John & Susan and came to live and work in France 12 years ago. It was always our dream to live in the South of France and to have a gite, so we are very happy to have realised our dream and we are delighted to be able to share this fabulous part of France and our beautiful garden and pool with our holiday guests! We are always happy to provide advice and recommendations for places to visit, eat and drink.

Susan Price purchased this bungalow in 2007

Why Susan Price chose Salon area

We have lived in Grans since we arrived in France 12 years ago and when we had the opportunity to buy a house we waited a long time to find the house of our dreams in the village that we love! Grans is a typical Provencal village which is completely self contained with a lively village life including several fairs, festivals and local celebrations. We are situated 1.5 km from the village centre and 3 minutes walk from the beautiful Parc de la Fontaine Marie Rose.

What makes this bungalow unique

The village is perfectly situated for visiting all of Provence, there is just too much to see and never enough time! A lot of our guests come back year after year as they don't find the time to visit all the sights when the temptation is to soak up the peace, seclusion and beauty lying on a sun lounger next to the pool. Le Cabanon is completely independent and is the only gite on the property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The perfect little hideaway for two. Lovely pool, attractive garden and studio with all the thoughtful touches necessary for a comfortable holiday. Thank you so much for your kindness and hospitality. We will recommend Le cabanon to our friends in the UK."

"Wonderfully relaxing in this home away from home"

"Lovely place, Lovely location. We only wish we had booked 2 weeks."

"The perfect little space for 2 we shall no doubt be back."

Relaxing Break

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a week and found Le Cabannon to be every bit as lovely as advertised.

Susan and John are the perfect hosts and were a pleasure to meet- friendly and unobtrusive (in fact we wish we had got to know them better)

The studio is well equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Thouroughly enjoyed the pool and miss it so much now we are home.

The bicycles on site came in handy for local trips to the village and days out.

All we wanted was a restful warm (hot) retreat and Le Cabanon was just the tonic so we didn't want to leave at the end of our stay.

Would love to return here one day and we would thouroughly reccomend to any couples who want a nice peaceful break.

Well done Susan and John - hope to see you again soon😀

Le Cabanon in Grans nr Salon

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in le Cababon,a little gem of a place, ran immaculately by Susan and Jonh in the heart of Provence.

The studio was well equipped,a lovely little wet room,English TV and WiFi.

It was very clean and comfortable within spitting distance of the pool. The village of Grans was a delight ful bike trip or walking distance away really beautiful full of restaurants,cafes and even a bull and horse racing fete through the town

The owners were so friendly and very helpful sharing their love of the area, full of ideas and local information which was very useful.

We were visited Arles and Aix and an amazing light show in the caves of Les Beaux which Susan told us about.

So quiet and peaceful in their place and could easily spend another week exploring the local countryside on their bikes.

Very happy to recommend to friends and family and very keen to stay there again ourselves - the whole trip really exceeded all expectations, it was truly magical.

Delightful studio by the pool

  • 5 of 5

Excellent accommodation for 2 in this neat, spotless and well-equipped gite. The shaded terrace looks out over the large pool (shared only with the owners) in the tranquil garden. The picturesque village of Grans is a short ride on the (supplied) bicycles with bars, a variety of food shops and two good restaurants. The many shops and restaurants in the historic town of Salon-de-Provence are a short drive. The site is well located for touring the many sites in the area. The English owners are charming and always ready with helpful advice.

Strongly recommended

Lovely Holiday

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed here twice.The gite is very clean and honestly described on the website. Susan and John are friendly great hosts and not at all imposing. The location is peaceful but only just over 20 minutes walk to the centre of Grans. The village has very good eating places and bars and when they get to know you they even offer free drinks. Access by car to the main places of interest in the general area is excellent as you are close enough to the main roads that go north,south, east and west.

Le Cabanon-Grans

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week's stay at Le Cabanon. The gite, though very small, is located in a delightful garden next to the pool and has excellent security. The interior has been tastefully and stylishly decorated, with a well stocked kitchen, plenty of tourist information and a pretty bathroom. Everything was clean and in good condition.

The location is excellent with many beautiful towns and villages to visit close by, a delightful drive along the Etang de Berre and an attractive coastline to the south.

The Marseille airport is half an hour away, and a great supermarket ten minutes away towards Salon de Provence.

The owners were friendly and charming and gave us helhelp pful tips on best places to visit. Installation of air conditioning would give mort comfort in summer

We would recommend this property to our friends and relations.

"Le Cabanon", a little "gem"

  • 5 of 5

Le Cabanon is a little gem in provence, perfect place to relax and visit this wonderful area, ideal location, close enough to visit beautiful coastal areas, wonderful cities and picturesque hill villages.

located just outside the lovely village of Grans, with very good restuarants, bars and amenities and a lovely place to cycle on bicyles supplied at the very well equipped holiday home.

Ideal place to just relax in the lovely garden around the pool or explore this wonderful area.
