This charming villa rental is ideally situated for discovering this region's rich historical and cultural heritage. Enjoy Avignon's famous summer theatre festival or an unforgettable Opera in the ancient Roman amphitheatre in Orange. Villa Calade is only minutes from the celebrated market town of Isle sur la Sorgue, where Antique enthusiasts gather every Sunday to peruse the endless stands that line the streets and the charming canal.
Driving along the quiet country roads in this region of Provence is a real pleasure. Let your gaze be drawn to the mysterious structures that are perched on the mountainside. These ancient remnants of the monastery of Thouzon, once belonging to Benedictine monks, set the dramatic backdrop for your drive home.
