The photos illustrate the grand size of the property, though rest assured that there is nothing intimidating about this home - the owners took great care to make things easy and comfortable for guests.
The furniture is new and casual, the decoration standard and modest. The house is fully air-conditioned and there are ample living spaces both indoors and out. This is truly an ideal space for enjoying a relaxed holiday in Provence.
This property, in days past a sheepfold, was just renovated by the daughters of the farmer in 2016, and has now become a vacation property strongly recommend for large groups or families with children.
One bedroom is located on the ground floor, and 6 more upstairs. There is plenty of space in the ground floor common rooms, which open onto a large terrace facing the large pool. The property is fully fenced and private.
An excellent value at this price.

The village of Noves is strategically placed in the north of the Alpilles the border between the departments of Bouches du Rhône and Vaucluse. Within a 20 km radius there are plenty of places to visit and charming villages to explore.
From Noves it is just a few minutes to the centre of Avignon and and a stone’s throw to the villages perched on the heights of the Luberon or to the famous market of Cavaillon. The citadel of Baux de Provence, the château of Tarascon and the Antiques (Roman remains) of St Rémy are also nearby and are well worth a detour. Finally, don’t forget that the sea and the beaches of the Camargue and Saintes Maries are only 70 km away.
Noves - Church
As you explore the village, you will discover some attractive ruins which date from the time when the bishops of Avignon and the popes were the lords of Noves.
The ramparts, of which the bell-tower, two gates and two beautiful square towers still remain, date from the 12th and 14th centuries. You can’t miss the Porte de l’Horloge (Clock Gate), surmounted by its bell-tower, which marks the entrance to the feudal village.
Noves - Door in the ramparts
Noves has also preserved another aspect of its rich mediaeval past: the narrow winding lanes which are a delight to explore. During your walk you will pass beautiful 17th-century façades and you will also see the church of St Baudile, built in the 12th century against the ramparts in the typical Provençal Romanesque style.
Noves - House
Noves is a lively village and its people enjoy a good party. Every year they organise several typically Provençal festivals with concours de manade (contests with bulls from several herds), courses de taureax (bull races), abrivado (bulls released into the streets) and folklore processions, as well as aïolis (open-air meals) and sardine festivals, where a great atmosphere is guaranteed.
A little history now - it was in Noves that the famous Provençal poet, Petrarch, met and fell madly in love with Laure de Noves. Alas, she was already married and impervious to the advances of Petrarch. The poet had to resign himself to not sharing his love with the beautiful Laure. Most of his sonnets, poems and love songs are dedicated to her.
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.
