The interior of the house has been decorated to the highest level. Antiques and modern comforts have been blended to the upmost standards of genuine class.

The spacious kitchen acts as a lovely gathering space for family and friends while cooking meals, inviting chefs to the house, or even participating in a french cooking lesson.

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.
