Wahouuuu!! Sophie's guesthouse is a great place to stay in. It is located in a nice historical village next to Avignon (10 minutes by car). It has an indoor swimming pool and great rooms with terrasse.
Sophie is a great host. She provided us with all the information we needed on restaurants and nice walks in the area and we felt home in her house.
Thank you Sophie. I'll come back :)
