About the Owner

Greg and Laura are both architects by training and fell in love with the view, so they decided to build their dream house there in 2009. We are now expatriates living in Vietnam with our 2 boys, where Greg is Managing Director for a construction materials subsidiary of a multinational company.

We return to our villa frequently during the year and hope that you will enjoy this little piece of peaceful paradise as much as we do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed staying at your place and had a great time touring around Provence. Excellent location being across the river and out of the main City. Great views. Your home is very clean which is very important. Overall we had a great time. Andrew H., 2011, Australia

The house, the interior, the garden and the area around was wonderful. We loved it and we enjoyed our vacation a lot. Specially the view from the terrace and the house is amazing. Florentine P., 2012, Germany

Excellent facilities and convenient location. Very good and useful communication with the owners helped to make this a great holiday for us. Gareth G, 2012, UK

The villa, its views and its location are simply magic. True to the photos on the website, the villa itself is modern, spacious and spotlessly clean. The whole booking process was excellent. The owner is particularly attentive. Would recommend this villa to all fellow travelers looking for that special place with a touch of luxury. Jacques M., 2012, Australia

Comfortable, modern, clean, tidy, perfect, a must stay

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we stepped into the property we knew this was going to be a great place to stay. We were met by the house keeper who was very friendly and helpful.

The house had plenty of space for 5 adults and three children. The bathrooms were modern and the kitchen as spacious with modern appliances.

The view over Avignon from the lounge and outside area made staying here very special.

We had a slight problem(our fault) with the tv which the owner was only too happy to help.

The surrounding houses were lovely, a very quiet and clean gated neighbourhood.

We all really enjoyed the pool.

The supermarket was a short walk and an even shorter drive from the house, really convenient.

We all really enjoyed our stay here and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again if we returned to Avignon.

Good location, great facilities and foodstores nearby

  • 4 of 5

Avignon is an impressive town and the villa lies on its outskirts. Placed amidst private houses within a locked off street gives you a good feeling. There is a supermarket and a bakery within walking distance, yet far enough not to disturb. There is an open landscape with lavender on the poolside. Excellnet for families.

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

Greg and Laura's Avignon villa is a beautiful and relaxing vacation home. We were a group of 7 people and the villa provided us with a lot of space and privacy.

The villa is convenient to amenities; a five minute walk to a large supermarket, (Carrefour), gas station, great bakery and Cafe.

The town of Villeneuve les Avignon (at the bottom of the hill) has so many restaurants! We particularly enjoyed L'Aubergine for both lunch and afternoon drinks.

The villas' view over the Rhone River towards Avignon is unsurpassed. Our poolside morning coffee and evening glass of wine, was so pleasurable because of this view, the scent of lavender and the peacefulness of the area.

The villa itself has all the amenities that one would need, and were most appreciated. (Washer/dryer, reliable internet) My only minor suggestion would be that the "house supplies" (toilet paper, dish soap and laundry detergent) be scaled to length of visit and number of guests. I don't mind buying these items, but I'd much rather buy more red wine!

I wholeheartedly recommend this villa to anyone who wants to explore this part of Provence. Our group had rented two cars, and over our two week visit, made many day trips to surrounding cities/villages/sites.

All in all, we had a lovely visit and would not hesitate to return!

We were very glad they thoroughly enjoyed their stay and were able to enjoy our villa's many amenities, including lavender garden, its spectacular views and the pool! We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming them again! Greg and Laura

Well appointed villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just enjoyed a 10 day sojourn in this lovely modern villa. We were met by Angelique whose English is limited but easily made herself understood and who showed us round. The rooms were well appointed and the villa itself was very well equipped and clean. The villa is ideal for two families or small group of friends. The open plan layout for the living areas made the villa feel very spacious. The view was magnificent from the living room windows and the garden full of lavender capturing the essence of Provence. It was unfortunately just a little too cold to use the pool due to the time of year but it was very pleasant sitting out beside it. Avignon and the surrounding area is a lovely part of France and we were easily able to get to places of interest from the villa. The only downside of our stay was the shortage of fuel as a strike began during our stay so we weren't able to travel too far afield. If you want to explore Provence then you won't go far wrong renting this villa.

Owner's Response: We really enjoyed welcoming Amanda and her family for her stay at our villa. We're glad she appreciated all our villa's amenities and great location from which to visit the many wonderful sites in Provence (despite the strike in France for fuel during her stay). We'll gladly welcome them again in the future!

The perfect experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent experience staying at Greg and Laura’s villa just outside Avignon. It is about 10 mins from Avignon center perched above a beautiful hilltop with incredible views. There are several vineyards within each of the bordering towns including the famous Chateauneaf-du-Pape. The property itself is well kept and cleaned after each renters stay. There are two parking spots (one in the garage and one behind it in the driveway). There is a convenient supermarket a 5 min walk down the road. Inside, the house is well appointed with everything you need!

Greg (the owner) was very attentive and was always quick to answer emails and fulfil our requests. The housekeeper is very nice and welcoming, she will likely be the one to check you in and out of the property.

Would definitely recommend this villa to our friends for a memorable holiday experience!

Overall though this was a 5/5 experience.

Thanks Greg and Laura!
