La Baronnette is a
lovely, air-conditioned, stone home located right in the heart of a picturesque
village of Cabrières d'Avignon. It is only 20 km from Gordes, 15 minutes from
Cavaillon and Isle sur la Sorgue, and 200 metres from local shops. This is a
simple and pleasant house in the heart of a very charming beautiful Provencal village.
Even though this property is a village house it has a small enclosed flowered garden of 380 sqm (4,000 sq. ft.) with cypress and olive trees, lavender. It has a south-facing shady terrace with a pergola and a swimming pool 8 m x 4 m
The picturesque village has plenty of charm, a perfectly preserved cluster of honey-coloured houses and dry stone walls, with narrow winding streets, fountains, original washhouses and a 12th century castle (now privately owned) with a bloody history. The village shops, a baker, excellent butcher and a grocer are a 4 minute walk from the house as is the excellent village restaurant Le Vieux Bistort” which was famously mentioned by author Peter Mayle.
There is a further choice of good restaurants are within about 1km (10 minute walk) of the village centre. There is an excellent farmers' market selling fruit, vegetables, flowers and wine in nearby Coustellet on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings including a large supermarket.
Cabrières d’Avignon is the most perfect location from which to explore the highlights of inland Provence, with many attractions being within a half hour drive. The Roman cities of Arles, Avignon, Nimes, St Remy and Vaison la Romain are also within easy striking distance. There are daily markets, including antiques, and a summer season of fetes and music/opera festivals all nearby.
