A light, sunny apartment with its entrance on a peaceful limestone track near beautiful Isle-sur-la-Sorgue in the Vaucluse. The huge garden, with lavender, oleanders, thyme and olive trees, blends into pine forest. The apartment has a large, sunny, high-ceilinged sitting room with well-equipped American kitchen, a large double bedroom with double bed, and a spacious bathroom. You have the tranquil Provencal garrigue right outside your door, with occasional horseriders passing by. The pretty village of Velleron and medieval market town of Isle-sur-la-Sorgue are close by. So are the medieval villages of Pernes-les-Fontaines and Fontaine-de-Vaucluse. It's worth looking online to see how lovely the area is. (And it's not just wonderful in summer - it's great to visit in spring, autumn and winter too. Spring and autumn are often warm, dry and sunny and winter's often sunny and dry. Plus, in winter, you get to meander through the medieval villages with no one around, which can be magical.) Avignon is half an hour away. The wild wetlands of the Camargue and the coastal town of Cassis are an hour's drive away. The vineyards of Chateauneuf-du-Pape are a little way to the north. If you like walking, cycling, horseriding, kayacking, swimming, visiting the wonderful local markets or just swinging in a hammock in the sun then this is a great place to stay. Your host speaks English, French and some Italian and will happily tell you about the area if you ask. But if you prefer to come and go and explore as you please, your privacy will be respected!
Do note that you need a car as the apartment is a couple of kilometres from the village. But you will no doubt have a car anyway, to explore this lovely region.
I've lived in Provence since 2004, having loved the region since I was a teenager. Before 2004, I lived in Scotland and loved that too - apart from the climate! I work for a US publisher, managing an academic publishing project across Europe and Scandinavia. When I welcome you to the apartment in this beautiful place, I'm very happy to chat with you and answer questions if you want, but if you just want to do your own thing then I entirely respect your privacy. You're on holiday!
