Interaction with Guests

Cavaillon is a small town in the very heart of Provence. It is fruit growing country, at the base of the Louberon hills, and there has been a settlement known here for over 2000 years. The majority of the old town that we see today is either 18th or 19th century and is very picturesque. Cavaillon is sheltered from the Mistral wind by the dramatic rise of the Louberon escarpment, and the 'Saint Jacques' massive. If you manage to climb the hill to the top, you can look across the planes to 'Les Alpiles' ('Little Alps'), and over to Mount Ventoux and beyond. It is easy to see where the now populated green and lush lowland countryside would have been submerged by ancient waters. There are many walks, cycle routes and viewing points around the area, along with open air swimming pools, wild swimming and organised water sports nearby. And last but not least - The wine is incredible here! Treat yourself to a visit to a local domain in Vacluse, Lumieres, Ventoux. - The famous 'Chateau Neuf du Pape' is grown nearby. You cannot go wrong. We have lots of leaflets and booklets on leisure activities at the house

Again, further information is available on arrival, both at the house and at the local tourist office.
There is space for plenty of cars at the Farm, but we are in a rather rural area. If you are not a keen walker of cyclist, think about hiring a car!
