About This Listing
Perfect for families. Near the city but without the noise, 10 minutes from Avignon and 20 minutes from “Pont du Gard” away, in the heart of Provence the “Lou Souvadou” is a small piece of heaven for those who stay there.
Sauveterre is a charming, provencal village far from the city noise. You stay in an old Provencal farmhouse equipped with all modern conveniences, a beautiful pool and a stunning view over the Rhone Valley, “Mount Ventoux” and the “Dentelles de Montmirail”.
This B&B offers 2 individual rooms with private bathrooms, plus a small room without bathroom for children (wc to share), and also a 4* reception by Françoise and Michel.
You’ll perfectly be situated to visit the vineyards of the Rhone Valley and the famous wineries of Chateauneuf du Pape or Tavel. The summer shows of the “Avignon Festival” and “Orange’s Choregies” are close too. You’ll be able to admire the wonderful sites of the “Baux de Provence”, Saint Rémy de Provence, Arles, Nimes, the Luberon villages, etc… But also to visit the picturesque markets or just relax in the sun besides the pool sipping a cocktail or glass of vine while preparing the itineraries with our hotes.
You’ll have the pleasure of enjoying your copious breakfast while listening to the cicadas in summer and breathing in the exceptional perfumes of the flowers in the garden.
The area is well served by the T.G.V. (in Avignon) or by the airports (Marseille, Nimes, Avignon, Montpellier,…) Of course it helps to have a car (Rental at the airport and train stations).
The only concern with the “Lou Souvadou” is that, when you come one time, it is hard to leave.

Nous avons passé un très agréable weekend de Pâques chez Françoise et Michel. Encore merci ! Nous avons été accueilli très chaleureusement, nos enfants ont bien profité de la magnifique propriété pour jouer à l'extérieur et les chambres sont très agréables, propres et bien décorées.
Idéalement situé à une quinzaine de minute d'Avignon c'est un très bon pied à terre pour découvrir la région. Nous y reviendrons certainement.
We had a wonderful time with Michel and Francoise, who went out of their way offering assistance when our travel plans were impacted by a plane strike. Michel gave very useful suggestions about exploring the region both at the time of our stay and during our planning; always answering our questions promptly. Breakfast and the dinners we ate with them were excellent. Our children enjoyed the pool, while we enjoyed the view. We wish we could have stayed longer and highly recommend our hosts, Michel and Francoise and the accommodation they provided.
We loved our 3 night stay with Michel and François. The rooms are beautiful with amazing views from every window and from our bathroom which was attached to our room. We (myself, husband and two daughters aged 8 and 11) loved everything about our stay here and wished we had stayed longer. The gardens, the pool, the incredible views and Michel's delicious breakfasts were all perfect. I highly recommend staying with these lovely French people in their spectacular home. (We also loved their two gorgeous dogs)
Hello - My boyfriend and I stayed with Michel and Francoise this past weekend in Sauveterre and it was an amazing experience.
Their home is absolutely beautiful, comfortable and they are incredibly hospitable and wonderful people. It is very private and they are always available for assistance if you need it. In fact, I became very sick this weekend and Michel and Francoise were so so kind to me! They bought me medicine, called friends for assistance (since I speak no french)... Really, it was perfect.
The upstairs area of the home is where we stayed and it was very clean, quiet and comfortable. They are very close to Avignon which is a very pretty, quaint, little Roman-esque town as well as other towns... They gave us multiple maps and ideas for the weekend which was very helpful.
My boyfriend and I couldn't possibly recommend Michel and Francoise any higher. Truly wonderful people in a perfect place.
Michel and François were the perfect hosts. Nothing was a problem and the food (breakfast and dinner) was really fantastique! A very comfortable room and bed in a magnificent and relaxed home. We loved it!!! Michel's recommended trips to the beautiful Provence countryside were perfect. We are already planning our return trip and will definitely stay again with Michel and François.
Very nice home, beautiful garden and house with a big pool and a terrace with barbacue and kitchen exclusive for us. Excellent location to visit the surroundings of Avignon. Michel and Francoise always very helpfully with everything we needed and they were always giving us the best tips to visit everywhere. The gourmet kitchen was delicious, and a very good price for it. Big breakfast with plenty of food. The house is in a beautiful montain very peacefull, we really could rest there. The acces to the wifi was not so good. Thanks a lot Michel y Francoise for this experience.
Thank you for your comments. We were very pleased to receive your family. On wi-fi, I do not understand. Using my notebook I went in the house and the connection is good (3/4 features reception 5) despite the thick walls. To date, I have not had any particular comment. may be it is the specificity of the i-pad or i-phone ?
