16th century house totally renovated with 21st century standards.
It was built by jean Haudebourg an engineer of the King of France who was in charge with the "Avignon bridge".
In the heart of the village ,,near a bus stop, a land of 8000m2, at the foot of the historical ST André Fortress.

Facing Avignon and its famous bridge, Villeneuve is ,thanks to its character , privileged location , gentle way of life and permanent sun ,the ideal stay in Provence:less than an hour from the Mt Ventoux , The Lubéron ,the Cévennes, les Baux de Provence , the Camargues , the Mediterranean sea, The Gardon Gorge with canoe-kayak, the famous Rhone Valley wine trail and 10 golf courses.

  • We had a wonderful time staying in this house.

    We fell in love with the pictures and the actual house did not disappoint in any way. It was beautiful and absolutely spotless.

    Christian and Marie are gracious hosts. They went out of their way so many times to help make our vacation more relaxing and convenient. We very much appreciated the supplies they provided to tie us over in terms of food since we arrived on a Sunday and all markets were closed. They also gave us a list of restaurants all 5 minutes away walking.

    We wish that we could repeat this vacation every year. That is how much we enjoyed our stay in the house. :)

  • Merveilleux séjour chez Marie et Christian,
    Nous avons été accueillis comme chez des amis. Ils ont été disponibles et présents tout au long de notre séjour tout en étant discrets.
    La maison, le jardin et la piscine sont géniaux !
    Tout le confort et la qualité du neuf et du moderne dans un cadre ancien, un savant mélange bien réussi et avec beaucoup de gout.
    L'emplacement de la maison est idéale, à deux pas du centre ville et des restaurants et dipose d'un parking privé.
    Nous reviendrons avec grand plaisir !

  • My husband and I, along with two other couples, stayed in this lovely house for one week. The house is exactly as it appears in the photos and includes everything that you might need. The hosts, Christian and Marie, could not be more welcoming or helpful during your holiday. They are a wonderful, warm couple who have a deep love and appreciation for their property and Provence and this is freely shared with their guests. We used this place as our base and explored many other villages in the area. We could walk to the patisserie every morning for pastries for breakfast and walk again to town every evening for dinner. It is only 5-10 minutes to get to the town square. We had a wonderful week at Christian and Marie's and I would heartily recommend their rental! We would love to return!

  • We really recommend this place!
    We were in 3 couples friends that were traveling for the first time in Provence and we found in the house of Chris and Marie the perfect combination of privacy and support! and They are very friendly!
    The house is very good equipped, the localization is perfect (with car) and the place very beautiful!
    From the house we could explore big part of Provence.
    Marie and Christian, thanks for sharing your lovely place with us!

  • We very much enjoyed our stay in Avignon, particularly the beautiful and very well equipped guest-house/grounds. There was an abundance of thoughtfulness shown by the hosts throughout our visit e.g. kitchen and bathroom stocked with all essentials including an excellent bottle wine, which made us all feel very welcome indeed.

    The hospitality and assistance with local information from the hosts enabled us to make the most of our time there which was greatly appreciated. We would certainly recommend staying at this wonderful place and may well so do ourselves again at some point in the future.

    Thanks again Christian and Maria!

  • We stayed with Christian and Marie for 4 nights and loved the renovated stable and the village of Villeneuve Les Avignon.

    They greeted us warmly, and the restaurant recommendations were very helpful. It was very easy to get around on the local bus service into Avignon.

    For any families staying with Christian and Marie, the home was very roomy, our kids loved the pool and for a special outing visit the Delphine and her ponies across the road.

    Thanks again Christian and Marie!

  • We had a wonderful 8-night stay at this lovely house in village of Villeneuve Les Avignon. We were 3 adults and a 16th month toddler. The house looks exactly like the pictures so if you like what you see you won’t be disappointed at all. Marie and Christian welcome us with a bottle of wine and bread upon our arrival and provided us with great restaurant recommendations. Marie and Christian left for their vacation/holiday the day after we arrived but they made sure to check on us from time to time to ensure we were OK--they are very caring and welcoming hosts. The house is close to everything you will need and it’s ideally located to explore Provence. A bus stop to go to Avignon is a block away from the house. A 5-minute walk takes you to Villeneuve Les Avignon center where you can find restaurants, cafes, ATM machines, grocery stores, bakery, butcher shops and everything you will need for a great vacation with friendly and helpful locals. On Thursdays there is a nice farmers market in the parking lot just outside the house—everything was fresh and delicious. We highly recommend this rental property for its great location, great hosts and spectacular surroundings!

  • We had a very enjoyable two-week stay at the house. Christian & Marie were very kind, welcoming, and helpful in every respect, inviting us to join them for a glass or two of wine on more than one occasion. The house is very comfortable, with all modern appliances, and the pool was a big hit with our kids. The town of Villeneuve is a quiet and classy antidote to the hub-bub of Avignon, with a good range of eateries, bakery, outdoor market etc. Christian & Marie have a wealth of local knowledge, and can make recommendations about places to visit in the region, the best wines, restaurants etc. Nothing was too much trouble. A fantastic holiday. We'd definitely go back.

  • We spent 2 lovely weeks at the restored stables with 2teenagers and my college son. Christian and Marie were so responsive and caring, never making us feel hesitant to ask for assistance. We had some medical issues while there and both went out of their way to help, going so far as to make my son an appointment with their doctor and insisting on accompanying us to the doctor visit. Their property is a beautiful period estate with the stable house and a small cottage. The property is very safe, automatic lights on the exterior areas and a metal security gate enclose the home. The village is adorable, we went there often for supplies, breakfast croissants and dinners. The village is a 5 minute walk and has a small grocery store, pharmacy and post office. This property is a good base to visit all of southern France, being within 1 hour of many sites historic and cultural. We saw a lot; Roman ruins, villages, orchards and beach areas. If you stay here you will be very well looked after while respecting your privacy. Bon voyage!

  • Book NOW! Christian's house is incredible. The house is beautiful and has everything you could want...and more. The house has four bedrooms all with plenty of space. The house is modern and wonderfully decorated. The location is spectacular. You are at the foot of the abbey and walls of the old city. The city center is within walking distance and it is a pleasant walk to the old city of Avignon. The best part of the house is Christian and Marie. They are absolutely fantastic. They welcomed us to their home and into their lives. They invited us for pre-dinner drinks and snacks. We talked while sitting in their lovely garden. They are gracious hosts and will help in every situation. They were available to give us directions or suggestions of what to visit. I wish I could go back now! Do not hesitate. We had the best experience!
