Cypress trees proudly line the driveway to Jordane and Raphael’s peaceful old farmhouse with sublime mountain views. Your compact studio with an old stone facade and grey shutters is in the garden and blissfully rustic. Walk straight in to an open-plan bedroom/living/kitchen area with all you need for holiday cooking, or you can cook up a storm on the barbecue. There’s a small sofa, two armchairs and a ducky little table for dining a deux. You have your own, private-feeling terrace with trees and shrubs dividing you from the main house, but this is a friendly place and you’re encouraged to use the garden with its smooth lawn, fruit trees and dining corner with table for al fresco meals on balmy evenings. You can also sizzle off in a small basin-style pool if it gets too hot. A stroll along the canal leads to fabulous old St Rémy with its restaurants, world-renowned chocolaterie and Wednesday market. Moments away is Avignon; the castle ruin at Les Baux is just over the hill. And you can’t miss Eytan, the owners’ adorable hunting dog who has a nose for the best wild mushrooms!
