Pin this Villa
Beautiful stonework, refined elegance and a spacious layout define this modernized historic farmhouse. Mas de Caumont is situated in a most peaceful setting, shaded by traditional platane trees, and encompassed by a beautifully kept green space.

The garden is vast and private, wonderfully maintained and full of flowers almost year-round. There are numerous areas to relax and enjoy the quiet setting, be it under the large trees, beneath the many pergolas, or beside the tranquil fountain.

The swimming pool is surrounded by a beautiful lawn, vast and welcoming, offering the choice for lying in the sun or the shade. This also provides ample space for children to run and play.

Once inside the Bastide, the quality and attention to detail given to each space is quite impressive.

The ground floor is composed by a large kitchen and dining room, a very comfortable sitting room, and a cozy library doubling as a TV room. All the furniture is of utmost quality.

Five bedrooms and four bathrooms compose the first floor. All bedrooms are air conditioned.

A large charming bedroom with stone walls – air conditioned – is set on the ground floor with a separate entrance and direct access to the terrace and gardens. This bedroom would suit guests with limited mobility quite comfortably.

A brand new appartment on the first floor composed of a kitchenette, sitting room, a bedroom with bathroom, and air conditioning unit is now available. It has as well a separate entrance.

Luxury and comfort exude from everywhere inside the house due to the combination of traditional renovated tiles, genuine ancient beams, and high quality linens. Tall ceilings seem to add to this feeling of space and grandeur.

The caretaker of the property is very attentive to all of the needs of the guests - She is efficient, dedicated, and discreet; certainly an added benefit for a comfortable stay.

This property is ideal for large families or groups of friends travelling together. It is situated close to a tiny road near Avignon between the two most popular destinations in Inland Provence: St Remy/ Les Baux on the one side and the Luberon Mountain villages on the other.

This exclusive property is located near l'Isle sur la Sorgue which is one of those places in Provence that one simply has to see. This "island city" lies at the foot of the Vaucluse Plateau in the plains of Comtat Venaissin.

Its colors are nature's green and the bright reflection of the water shining from the several canals running through its center.

The river Sorgue surrounds the city as if to hug it.

Walking along the canals you will notice how they run between the narrow ancient streets. There are little bridges to cross and great wheels to look at with mossy blades turning in the river. 1 kilometer from the city is the "partage des eaux" where the river splits in two and forms a small pond where plane trees and green foliage abound

Long ago, the inhabitants lived off crayfishing (up to 35,000 crayfish a day!), and the silk and paper industries used those great wheels in the river for manufacturing their local products.

History has left its mark on L'Isle sur la Sorgue and points out its importance in Comtat Venaisson in the 14thc. The Collegiate church Notre Dame des Anges has an exceptional Baroque interior and the 18thc, hospital pharmacy boasts a rare collection of Moustier faience.

Also, magnificent mansions have been converted into art galleries, in particular the famous Maison René Char - Hotel Donadeï de Campredon (18thc.), now a museum exhibiting such great artists as Miro, Mauguin or Dufy and a display area dedicated to René Char.

Antique lovers and art collectors will be gratified by the nearly 300 permanent antique dealers and second hand shops here.

L'Isle sur la Sorgue hosts antiques' fairs at Easter and over the August 15th holiday that have given a worldwide reputation to this small city. More than 500 antique dealers and second hand dealers gather here to show their treasures to customers from all over the world.

This city is truly worth the trip! But just a suggestion: leave your car in the parking lot provided, and stroll around the town -slowly taking in the atmosphere and letting yourself be captured by its charms.

Getting here:
The easiest way to get to Inland Provence from the US is to fly to Marseilles International Airport (MRS). If you would like to see Paris, fly to Charles de Gaulle Airport then connect directly to the TGV(high speed train) from CDG TGV2 to Avignon TGV(3 hours direct) and rent a car. You would plan to see Paris on the way back, taking the TGV from Avignon TGV to Gare de Lyon, getting a cab to your hotel in the city.
