Avignon: 25 km. Carpentras and Mazan: each 5 km. Marseilles: 70 km.
TGV: Avignon. Train and bus: Carpentras. Airport: Marseilles.
We're out in the country (bikes are easily available).
There are restaurants, cafes, vineyards and wonderful villages in all directions. The chateau of the Marquis de Sade is now a restaurant in nearby Mazan. An organic vineyard is less than a 10 minute walk away (1-min drive). Mont Venoux is wonderful (45 minute drive) - you can see for hundreds of km.
DETAIL: Five kilometers away are 2 towns (in opposite directions), with restaurants, antique fairs, cafes, shops, and wonderful old streets. The smaller town, Mazan is ideal for fresh baguettes in the morning. Then, a chateau that was once the residence of the Marquis de Sade is now a charming restaurant. As for Carpentras, it is much larger, has 2 supermarkets, and 2 weekly fairs. Both are crowded and bustling. There are wonderful small shops, including a chococlate shop, pastry shops, and shops with traditional Provencal fabric. And then there is Avignon - a large town with masses of historic places, including the famous bridge, a winding river, a shopping street, and festivals galore. Van Gogh's famous haunts are just an hour away. For the active, there's biking and hiking, for everyone there's touring - villages, historic sites, Roman ruins, fountains, and so much more.

About Philippe Guerin

Why Philippe Guerin chose Mazan
In 2005 when I could not resist buying this house in the heart of Provence. Very peaceful area, surrounded by vineyards, within 1/2 hr to 1 hr of the main points of interest in Provence
