The equipment consists of a airconditioner, WIFI, TV with over 100 channels, DVD reader and numerous DVD's in English, French, German, Finnish...)

La Roubine is perfect for you who wish to discover the sunny Provence on your rhythm and likes. It is situated in the centre of various interesting tourist sites in the heart of Provence.

Our vacation rental is in the historical village of Velleron, in the Avignon region, between Carpentras and Cavaillon. Velleron is lively village with some 3000 inhabitants famous for the daily farmers market offering a large choice of vegetables, fruit, olive oil, wines, flowers and in summer time the nearly daily concerts or other amusements offered free at the Place de l'Eglise by sun set.

La Roubine is situated in the centre of most interesting Provence tourist routes. The mountains of le Mont Ventoux, le Luberon or the towns of Isle sur la Sorgue, Avignon or Apt, are all in the reach of less than a half an hour drive.

The big green garden offers shady places for afternoon naps or relaxing pauses.

Various activities are available in the surroundings: golf, tennis, cycling, horse riding and bathing. Moreover the nearby towns offer attractive choices for wondering in the provencial ambiance.

We do our best to facilitate your vacation:

- at arrival the beds are made

- you find refreshments in the fridge

- you find fresh vegetables and fruit at the Velleron farmers' market until 8pm every evening (except Sundays)

- the closest supermarket is in 0,5km and open till 8pm and Sunday mornings. They are very kind and have really a good choice of things you need.

- the local bakery is open daily from 7am to 1pm. They offer a large selection of fresh bread. The croissants, pain gourmand et le pain Savane are our favorites

- in the central round-about you find Rouget, an awesome cake and chocolate shop. It is highly recommended to pay a visit.

- next to the cake shop you have Lena for clothings and a further on a flower shop

- the village offers also ready made food: a pizzeria opposite to the post office, next door a Vietnamise food shop, two restaurants (two traditional, the newest one is opening in June 2019 on the main street (a small brasserie run by an excellent young cook), and a creperie (pancake restaurant)

In La Roubine, your privacy is assured.

However, we are willing to help you to plan your stay whenever you need help. Moreover, we can provide you with guides and maps.

We are very happy to help you in discovering the local way of living, the local events as well as the less known places of interest. Actually, we have learnt that this is what many people are today looking for: getting an insight into the local life and way of living, discovering why life quality in Provence is so special.

Getting around

Most visitors come to Provence by train or airplane but rent a car for flexible getting around. The main train connections arrive in Avignon from where you can take a local train to Isle s/ la Sorgue, Le Thor or Carpentras. There is a direct bus connection to Velleron from Marseille Airport. This is the main international airport closest to us. In case you decide to use public transport, there is a "call bus" which you can reserve to pick you up and take you to the closest train or bus station. In case you wish to get around by bike, this is no problem at all. Actually many people come to the region to do bike tours. Velleron is a great place to start off for instance for a tour to the Mont Ventoux or Luberon area.

Interaction with guest

The multicultural and linguistic hosts are available to help you and are fluent in English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish, Danish, Dutch... The hosts are happy to give you advice and help to plan your daily trips in a relaxing and pleasant way. If you wish you can be accompanied to a tour in the local wine cellars and be introduced to the local wines. We also you offer the possibility of cooking some local dish (Bouillabaisse, Ratatouille, Aïoli...) and sharing the dinner with us. We guide you to participate in local events and getting in touch with local people. You need not be a perfect French speaker for doing this: we make the interpretation and introduce you to the people.

“The best rental we've ever had. Anywhere.”

Reviewed 10 Jun 2015

My husband and I found this rental, La Roubine, in the small village of Villeron, was rather perfect. Our hosts, Jean Paul and Auli, did everything possible to make our stay as pleasant and enjoyable as possible. The property, which adjoined the owner's home, and with separate entrance and car park area, made for convenience; but also offered every element of privacy. The rental was clean, very well-equipped and met (and exceeded) our expectations. The location was convenient, with nearby shopping, tourism, and fascinating countryside in every direction. And, we were there during poppy season. As a photographer, my photo ops were boundless. We had rather perfect weather as well. We would recommend this, wholeheartedly and without reservation. Thank you, Jean Paul and Auli, and the Trip Advisor experience as well.

Owner's reply: We were really delighted to have you as guests and look forward to eventually receiving you again.

Owner's reply: It is a pleasure to read this feedback and experience the spontanity of the act of wishing to share your experience. We understood that you had found our place through Tripadvisor, were pleased to notice that the previous feedbacks gave you relevant information and you therefore wished to pass the baton. This is also the way we ourselves do when travelling. Word of mouth has become an important tool and is mostly reliable. Hope that you yourself find your way back again to us.

“Lovely host, perfect location”

Reviewed 19 Apr 2014

Auli and Jean-Paul are very helpful , friendly and speak many languages, also mine, finnish. The cottage is well equipped and the garden is beautiful. The location is very good to explore the region of Vauclause.

Owner's reply: In your feedback you underline our linguistic skills. In fact originally these wore elements together with the familiarity with our region, traditions and activities, that encouraged us to develop our holidayletting. We wish to help others in lowering barriers to come and enjoy Provence, not just only offer a place to stay. It is our pleasure that you appreciated your visit.

“Like coming home”

Reviewed 14 Apr 2014

We stayed at Auli and Jean-Paul's apartment in June 2013. We received good driving instructions and good tips for planning our holiday in Provence well in advance. When we arrived late in the evening, our hosts had stocked our fridge with fresh bread, cheese and other supper and breakfast essentials, which was especially nice after a long drive. The apartment was just the right size for two people and the private garden was beautiful. The hosts' two little dogs were friendly and super cute. The location of La Roubine is ideal for people who like to discover the treasures of Provence independently.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your quoting. We were really happy to have you as guests in our holidayletting and pleased to hear that you have good memories of your stay. Warm regards Jean-Paul, Auli and Bonita
