The specific property and locations for this tour are subject to change.
Meet in Avignon at 3pm, then transfer to your home for the next week. Your home away from home is a 3-storey house dating back to the 17th century located in the heart of a typical Provencal village. The 'mini chateau' offers comfortable rooms, a large, fully equipped kitchen, a spacious living room and inside and outside dining areas to enjoy meals, along with a nice terrace complete with swimming pool, gazebo and a barbeque for grilling local delicacies. Shops, cafés and a daily farmer's market are all very close to the property.
