La Vieille Maison
Jonquille is beautifully decorated and a lovely place to have a holiday. Your hospitality has made us feel like we have been staying with old friends. Claire and Matthew - UK..
La Vieille Maison is a charming ancient mellowed stone Mas next to the Chateau, with its origins dating back to around 1450. The stone walls of 1 metre thick hold many secrets, which date back over 6 centuries.
The Mas, which is situated in the Provencal mediaeval village of Cabrieres d'Avignon, just east of Avignon in the Luberon, comprises two choices of luxury self contained accommodation, Jonquille and Cecilia. They are named after Annie’s late Dad’s yachts, and accommodate 4 and 2 adults respectively.
Cecilia has one double room, and in addition there is a mezzanine with two futons, which the younger children love! The double height open plan living area gives the feeling of space and light. Holes in the wall reveal a previous history of silk production. Jonquille, has two double rooms, a twin bedded and a large double bedded room. It has the benefit of a private courtyard with table, chairs and a balcony, in addition to full use of the large courtyard garden and pool.
Both are finished to a high standard with antique linen sheets, luxury bathrobes and towels, which encompass understated quality and elegance for the discerning guest. All bedrooms in are en suite.
The beautiful garden is a place of tranquillity, where one can always find a secluded corner in which to relax, or eat and drink. Resting on the towelling sun bed mattresses by the pool is always a favourite occupation. There are plenty for everyone!
For a holiday in France in a wonderful area, La Vieille Maison is in a delightful oasis of peace and calm, as often mentioned by our guests. Although it is only 2 minutes walk from the boulangerie, small general store and butcher, the countryside is directly behind the house, where many long walks and paths can be discovered. It is truly a very peaceful location.
John and Annie Lupton welcome many return guests on a regular basis.
