About Gregory LUKASIK

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 China 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!

Gregory LUKASIK purchased this villa in 2008

Why Gregory LUKASIK chose Villeneuve - Rhone Valley

This villa has all the charm of Provence while offering all the comfort you expect. It's proximity to Avignon, peaceful garden with no vis-a-vis with the neighbors, breathtaking views and very secure location in a gated neighborhood make it truly unique.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is within walking distance of grocery shopping and a couple of simple restaurants, and ideally located to visit Avignon and Provence, while enjoying the full quietness of the green neighborhood. Its panoramic views over the Rhone Valley, the Pope's palace and the mountains of the Luberon make it a unique experience which can't be easily found elsewhere.

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

Excellent Property, Great location.

  • 5 of 5

The view and facilities at the villa are great. The shops in walking distance are ideal. For normal town and searching out history, Avignon is 10 minutes in the car from villa to car parking! Top location and a very enjoyable stay.

Great pool, great view, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this property on the hills above Villeneuve-les-avignon. It was kept very clean for our arrival. The villa is very well equipped when it comes to cooking too. We had nice barbecues outside (you can see fort Saint-Jean and the palais des Papes from there. The location is great in a quiet neighbourhood, within walking distance of the bakery and supermarket. The location is central and it's a quick drive to the major attractions around Avignon, Chateauneuf-du-pape, les dentelles de Montmirail, etc. I would highly recommend this property.

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!

Owner's Response: It was a real pleasure to welcome this Sarah and her friends in May. 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

Many places have cultural festivals including Opera in Aix en Provence and Orange, theatre in Avignon and Jazz/piano in La Roque d'Antheron during the summer months.
