Location

From the Owner

We bought the house after coming to a friend's wedding nearby. We loved the area and when we saw the house we loved the house. It's easy to get to but a very special feeling of peace when you're there. In Asia they would say the feng shui is just right.

Facilities

From the Owner

Plenty of space, inside and out. The house has a special charm and feels very peaceful. In the country, but easy access to motorways to get to the sights of the region. Three pretty little towns -- L'Isle sur la Sorgue, Cavaillon and Le Thor -- with shopping and restaurants each 10-15 minutes' drive away. Great local markets.
