Avignon countryside, apt w. garden

House - Entire home/apt · Chemin des Amoureux, Domazan, Languedoc-Roussillon 30390, France

The Space

2 separate bedrooms, fully equipped and renovated (rooms, beds, kitchen, bathroom, terrace, dishwasher, sat TV, Wifi Internet access, ...) independent apartment with private garden in a small wine producing village in the "Provence" area.
The whole apartment has been purpose designed to enable wheelchair access if required and, after a few requests, we now also have a baby cot :-).

Guest Access

The house is off the beaten track and very calm but at the same time the location is right in the middle of everything that's interesting in the Provence while easily in reach of the Cote d'Azur, the Ardeche, the Southern Alps... the immediate surroundings of the apt are great for outdoor activities, walks or just a lazy afternoon siesta with a book. We have a pair of bicycles you can use to get around the village or go for a spin in the countryside as well.

Interaction with Guests

We like to host as we like to BE hosted... with attention to detail and with personal presence if required.

The appartment is on the rear side of our house and we are thus easily reachable in case of a requirement but we basically will keep out of your way unless you want us to be of help, give details about local activities or good adresses or, as has been known to happen, invite us over for a drink :-).

We love our region, like sharing good experiences and meeting people through airbnb.
A bientôt !
Pascale et Robert

The Neighborhood

Domazan is a small and quietly friendly wine producing village situated in a triangle between Avignon, Nimes and Uzes. The apt is 3 min walk from the village centre where a perfectly adequate village café / restaurant / bakery / shop can cater not only for fresh croissants and baguette for your breakfast but also local fruit, vegetables, wines, cheese and almost anything else you forgot to get for your evening meal.

Note that the restaurant serves on weekdays and at noon only and the village shop is closed for most of August.

Neighboring attractions : The towns of Avignon, Nîmes, Uzés, Arles, St.Rémy de Provence, Aigues Mortes, Baux de Provence... The Pont du Gard, The Camargue national parc, Roman circuses (Nîmes, Arles) and theaters (Orange), Medieval palaces (Avignon), the Avignon theatre festival in July, the Cevennes national parc, the Mediterranean beaches and laid back lifestyle... the Côtes du Rhone wineries: ranging from our local neighbours to the most prestigious, Châteauneuf du Pape, Tavel, Gigondas and other wine producing villages... all (email hidden) radius... check out the guidebook for some more ideas.

Getting around

You will obviously need a car to get around as rural public transport is pretty sparse... Getting here is easiest by high speed train (TGV) to Avignon TGV station which is 15 mins away from the house (from Paris in 2,5 hours or from Brussels, Amsterdam, Frankfurt or London) or via any of the following airports : Marseille Provence airport (1 hour), Nimes Garons (25 mins), Montpellier Frejorgues (35 mins).

All major car rental agencies have offices in the above airports and at the Avignon TGV station, we can help with formalities or check prices of course.

  • Thank you so much Pascale and Robert, we were very comfortable with you ... the house was perfect and with all the comforts, could not ask for better. A great stay! Thank you again!

  • The week we had here was very relaxing. Robert and Pascal had prepared the apartment very well and everything was very clean. Everything that you would need for a self catered stay is provided and being a country location, a car is a must! This is a lovely place to base yourself for your Southern France holiday.

  • We stayed for a week in Domazan, the location was perfect for getting to all the must see and must do places, like pont du gard, avingnon, arles, Mount Ventoux. It is also in the perfect location to take it easy and enjoy a slice of living in the south of France, meet the people who produce lovely wine. Enjoy the local markets. And take the time to smell the grapes.
    A big thank you goes out to Pascal and Robert for making our stay as perfect as it was, lots of good information, a comfortable , relaxing place to stay and their ability to make us feel like we belonged the moment we arrived will not be forgotten soon.

  • The apartment was just what we expected, clean, relaxing, well decorated and in a great location but the bonus was the lovely animals which I would have loved to claim for my own. Ebene, the English spaniel, would greet us with the biggest smile showing her teeth in a big grin!! Unfortunately we didn’t get to spend much time with Pascale and Robert but they were very helpful and seemed lovely…..maybe next time.

    Many thanks Ken, we hope that there will be a next time soon !
    Until then, all the best

  • We had a fantastic stay here and wish we could have stayed longer! The apartment is clean, spacious and beautifully furnished, and it was great to have a little garden to relax in. My wife and I were travelling with our 6 month old baby and it was ideal for us - the cot was good quality and comfortable, and there was plenty of space.

    Domazan is a lovely quiet town off the beaten track - we were so glad we stayed there rather than in nearby Avignon.. We had a delicious lunch at the village restaurant, and a great time chatting to Mark and tasting the fantastic wines at Bellevue winery next door. We wish we could have fit more wine in our luggage to take home!

    Pascale and Robert were very friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. Our rental car wouldn't start just as we were about to leave to head to the train station, and Pascale was so great and helped us to phone the rental place and organise a mechanic. Thank you!

    We would highly recommend the apartment and hope to return one day!

  • Our family of four loved it here at Domazan. Pascale and Robert are fantastic hosts and provide not only a really good quality garden apartment but also a whole load of tips about where to go and how to do it. Our kids loved seeing Spot and Ebene each day although did make us miss our dog at home! The apartment is spacious, has good quality fittings, really nicely decorate, extremely comfy beds, fluffy towels and all the little things in the bathrooms and kitchen.

    As hosts we can't say enough about Pascale and Robert, they gave us some lovely home made jams for our croisants, some figs that they had picked and even a bottle of one of the many local wines. Simply lovely people.

    On a practical level you absolutely must have a car and a small one is good as so many of the roads and parking spaces are narrow. Domazan whilst a quiet little village has a wealth of things to do not more than 20-40 minutes drive so you can explore very easily and on the way eat at one of the restaurants recommended by Pascale and Robert.

    We left incredibly relaxed and in no small part the location was a part of that. Highly recommend staying here.

  • It was very nice to stay in Pascale's and Robert's flat. All was very good organized and we enjoyed the time there. The flat is good equiped and very clean. The place is good to make excursions to the Cevennes and also to the beaches in the Camargue. This is what we expected and it fulfills our expectations 100%.

    September 2013
  • Had a great 3 day stay with Pascale and Robert, and of course Ebene and Spot! This is a very nice apartment near to a lot of places (Nimes, Avignon, Pont du Gard, Uzes etc) but very quiet and surrounded by 21 wineries! Our only problem was leaving - we should have planned to stay longer and would recommend a longer stay to anyone visiting.

    July 2013
  • Great vacation tips and gracious hosts. We really appreciated all of the tips, food, wine and cheese! It was nice meeting Pascale and Robert and their very sweet pets. They were attentive to our needs despite their busy schedules.

    July 2013
  • Wonderful house and hosts. Pascale and Robert made us feel very welcome and provided great tips on travelling around the area. I'm terrified of dogs but found Ebene to be extremely well-behaved so I wasn't afraid. The patio is great for chilling outside with wine and cheese =)

About
I (Robert) am a typical multilingual product of an international school curriculum and parents of different nationalities. I work in International Sales and thus travel a lot to many different destinations; this is a substantial part of what makes me tick. I came to the Provence in 1984 and am still deeply grateful to be able to live in such a diverse and beautiful part of the world. My wife Pascale is a talented event and interior decorator, she not only does our house and the apt we rent but her company also decorates restaurants and hotels and organizes corporate or private events. She was born 10 kms from where we live now and thus knows a lot about the area we live in. She's the daughter of a Michelin starred chef and knows where the best table is for every budget as well as how to make typical French "cuisine". Our lifestyle, our friends and our interests are like that food, diverse and tasteful. We love hosting people with as ground rule that we host as we would like to be hosted: In comfort and taste with attention to detail. We enjoy feeling proximity while leaving ample space for personal experiences and local discoveries. We have 4 kids in their late teens and early twenties who have started leaving home and a dog (Ebène) who we are sure you will meet as she is generally adopted and spoilt by most of our guests. Our own travel method would be best described as being “get there and improvise afterwards, avoid the tourist traps and seek out where the locals go”. Our destinations mostly result from a detail which triggered our curiosity or motivation. We like music, films, reading and just about any form of leisure that takes place on or near water. Hosting on Airbnb is proving to be a great way to meet a very large variety of truly fabulous people from all over the world and from all walks of life. We love it !
