Discover the charming serene French village of Cabrieres-d'Avignon that is perfectly perched in Vaucluse in the Provence-Alpes-Cotes d'Azur region. This picturesque mountainside town offers fabulous views of the Luberon mountain ranges, and is embedded within a spectacular countryside filled with vineyards, orchards and marketplaces. Infused with colorful flowers and seasonal harvests of fresh fruits and vegetables, along with its legendary light that inspired Van Gogh and Cezanne to paint, the town has retained its authentic character over the centuries offering a unique atmosphere of landscapes. Steeped in rich history and centrally located close to the most beautiful architectural and cultural heritage of Vaucluse, the village and its surrounding region beckon visitors to explore it. Wander through the village streets and marvel at the admirably restored houses and fountains; explore the sights which a 13th-century castle, and the Romanesque church of Saint Vincent and its St Eusebius chapel which serves as the oratory of the Virgin Mary; or enjoy a hike in the delightful cedar forest with its well-marked walking trails. Visit the neighboring village of Coustellet with its Museum of Lavender and learn the history of the plant along with its many medicinal and therapeutic uses; stroll the lovely posh neighborhood of Gordes considered one of the most beautiful villages of France which is only 5-klm away; and sip from the famous rejuvenating natural spring Fontaine de Vaucluse.
Immerse yourself into an equally enchanting dwelling located in the magical setting of Luberon - the beautiful "La Calade" stone farmhouse villa. With its landscaped enclosed garden courtyard and its fabulous refreshing pool surrounded by citrus trees and flowers, and its chic architectural interior spaces, the villa is infused with le joie de vivre. Be inspired by the region and its farmers markets and cook in the fully-equipped Chef's Kitchen; or perhaps test your pizza making skills at the outdoor stone oven or BBQ; gather around the stone table under the shady trees to dine al fresco, or perhaps choose indoor dining at the rustic wooden kitchen table or the more formal long family table in the dining room. Congregate in the cozy Living Room with its exposed wooden beams and sip a glass of wine (or two) by the fireplace; or perhaps relax and entertain in the divine Great Room with its marvelous staircase that leads upstairs. The farmhouse is luxuriously decorated with an all-white theme with striking modern art, earthenware pottery, natural stone and marble accents along with beautiful lighting fixtures throughout. Magnificent windows open up within each area of the villa to allow natural light and fresh air in as needed. Stroll upstairs to encounter six divine bedrooms to slumber in, outfitted with comfortable mattresses covered in Frette sheets, and each decorated in the same chic decor with their own private en-suite baths. Further up on the 3rd floor, guests can marvel at the views from the outdoor terrace. La Calade beckons you to stay a long while because you will certainly never want to leave!
For additional fun, the farmhouse offers an in-ground trampoline for children (or adults with youthful spirits) and a ping-pong table. Activities abound in the nearby area, ranging from hiking, biking, horseback riding or perhaps take in a performance at the opera or theater. For convenience, the villa also provides a laundry room with full washer and dryer set. In addition, a private chef or babysitting services can be organized for your group needs.

French countryside at its best
We had the perfect stay in this spectacular home. The cyclists on our group were in heaven and those of us taking advantage of French wines were spoiled as well. Heather and her house manager and Chef(!) (do use Maria Noelle and plan ahead) were so helpful! I am sure we will be back again!”
