Avignon in and itself is a fairy tale type of place to visit in the south of France. Our objective was to meander from Burgundy to Provence to Nice to the Italian Riviera by car over a 3.5 week period. Our stop at Domaine de Rhodes exceeded our expectations completely! Located just minutes away from the medieval walled city of Avignon, the farmhouse and other connected buildings are situated in the middle of several acres of open fields and wooded glens. The rooms ooze a historical past yet are very cozy, clean and well appointed (not to mention quite spacious!) Each morning was a delightful time to visit with Francoise and Paco over breakfast and they were quite earnest in learning the interests of all their guests and making helpful suggestions for day excursions. Our interest was ancient Roman ruins and wine tasting and there was plenty of each to explore within an hours circumference of Avignon. Wow....
Its been 15 months since we were there last--my review is overdue but I find myself dreaming of returning and hence, I am writing this to say---"see you soon!" We were actually there in September of 2011...the weather was EXQUISITE--and post tourist high season. Delightful!
Merci Francoise & Paco: Merci for such a wonderful visit.
