I try to compose my experience in both English and Chinese, so as help more Chinese tourists find this wonderful place.
This is my second time to France, Provence Avignon the second time as well. Last time I take a travel group but didn't live in Avignon, otherwise I was so much attracts by this place. Therefore I decide to live in a traditional Sud France Village for one week for my summer vacation. It approved that my decision is completely correct.
Regarding the small town-Villenue les Avignon:
Clean, safe, convenient, full of historical place, kind and elegant citizens. Walking on the street will make you feel live in the Medieval Times, eating in the front of Abbey, walking around The Fort and Charteus with your lovers are really fantastic.
After visiting you could meet Antique market and drink a Pastis (Ricard/51)in the town center square's bar. Boys there are very friendly, they will teach you which is French local cigarette.
All in all, the small town makes me really comfortable, it is appropriate for people to live, perhaps after retirement haha. Clean, Safe and peaceful.
Regarding the host-Marc and Martin:
Marc and his family satisfied me all of the ideas about French Papa and families.
Kind, patient, think fully, be familiar with tourists' living habits.
I would really thank Marc help me to check with Avignon rental car company before I arrive in Provence so as help me to rent a car successfully. Merci beaucoup!
The room is beautiful, cozy and full of the flavor of Sud France. Every morning, when you open the window, you could enjoy flowers, trees, blue sky and smiling from Marc's grandson. That's family, c'est la vie!
With air condition, wifi and soft bed, well-equipped kitchen, you will love to live in the house.
Marc and Martin are very friendly, they let me experience French people's warm to guests. I do like to make friends with them. If have next chance, I would to chat with them about history, gardening, painting and Vin Rosé.
So many good memories, if you would like to know more, just message me:)

Recent years, Chinese people have more and more chances for Travelling abroad, hope that we could establish good images among the international tourists. Merci beaucoup!
We had a wonderful time at Marc and Martine's charming and cozy little house in Villeneuve-lez-Avignon and we highly recommend it! Marc and Martine sent us emails with weather info before our arrival and assured us that Marc would go pick us up at the train station. Marc greeted us upon our arrival at Avignon train station as promised, helped us get our rental car, and led us to his house. He recommended places to visit around town and surrounding area and provided useful maps and informations. Marc and Martine even offered us their homemade fruit jam and champagne! The house is cozy and very clean with everything we needed, and the garden is lovely! There are many good restaurants close by. Thank you very much, Marc and Martine, for your warm and cheery hospitality!
What a truly wonderful and charming the little house in Provence is along with our hosts Marc and Martine. Both of them are so helpful and kind, they made the trip so much easier with things like collecting us from the station, providing maps and local knowledge and Marc really did treat us to an afternoon of wine and hospitality which was lovely. The little house has everything you need and we fell in love with it along with beautiful shady/sunny garden to get some magical Provence weather. Merci beau coup Marc et Martine your little house and hospitality was magical we hope to see you again so we can experience more of your beautiful country. Xx
