Michel and Francoise were perfect hosts for this wonderful stay. Thank you for the warm welcome and hospitality you showed to our family throughout the entire week.
The home is located in Sauveterre just outside of Avignon. This was a perfect fit for the day trips we did by rental car to several small towns in Provence. The view is fantastic - you can see Mont Ventoux and Chateauneuf-des-papes from the yard, both of which we visited. At night it is just as peaceful as it could be, even with all the windows open. The pool was open, but it was 1st week of June so the water was a bit cold, although everyone of us eventually went swimming. We had the entire first floor, while our hosts stayed on the main level. The staircase is right next to the front door, so access was private and easy. The 3 bedroom plan with 2 showers fit our family of 5 (with 3 teenagers) perfectly. We also enjoyed jogging in the vineyards in the area.
Every morning we woke to a set table at 9am. The time was our choice, and we came down for a nice breakfast consisting of warm bread, croissants, juice, coffee, yogurt, and a great egg omlette usually closer to 9:30am . We also had an absolutely delicious canard dinner with potatoes one night, eating on the table outside several times because the weather was perfect - sunny and low/mid 70's F. We shared some drinks and great conversation with our hosts as well – it was a great opportunity for us to practice our French. They were very helpful in providing guidance for our day trips to the Provence area, speaking slowly so we could make the translation, and providing maps and also information about specific sites.
Overall an outstanding vacation in Provence, part of which was due to staying with Michel and Francoise at their Sauveterre home. We highly recommend it!
