Cairanne 2BDRBack to Provence
This charming Provence villa is located just outside of the village of Cairanne in a beautiful and typical Provençal mas (a traditional farmhouse). Converted stables dating back to the mid-19th century make up the main house, which is surrounded by the working winery and ancillary buildings, all lying in the midst of luscious vineyards, fruit orchards, and olive groves. This gorgeous 125 acre (50 hectare) property has been family owned for over 150 years.
Just a mile from the center of the Cairanne village, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit makes up the South wing of this lovely Provençal villa. The apartment shares a common entryway with its three-bedroom sister (both units can be rented together as a five-bedroom property for groups of up to twelve people), but is otherwise completely private. Each unit has its private living room, fully-equipped kitchen, and dining area. Designed to sleep up to five guests, the Cairanne two-bedroom property proposes a comfortable and inviting space perfect for friends, families, or romantic getaways. Both bedrooms offer air conditioning and a king sized bed that can be split into two singles, and one of the bedrooms also has a daybed for additional sleeping space. Both bedrooms have their own private, en suite bathroom with shower and sink. On the ground level, the separate W.C with toilet and sink is shared.
The owners of this gorgeous, sustainable property have paid careful attention to detail as they restored the structures with an eye for balancing authenticity, comfort, and country simplicity. Traditional touches meet contemporary architecture, with large bay windows throughout the villa contributing to the luminous atmosphere.
A path at the back of the villa leads to a garden and provides access to the swimming pool (shared with the other unit): a long, discreet lap pool hidden among hundred-year-old olive trees. You can relax and cool down surrounded by Rhône Valley vineyards overlooking Mont Ventoux and the Dentelles de Montmirail, some of the most magical locations of the region.

We can't say enough positive about our stay with Sabine and Nick at the Cairanne 2 BDR property. The entire week was wonderful and we felt so much at home from the moment we arrived until leaving. Sabine had milk, juice, butter in the fridge along with spices, jelly and all one would need to get along cooking just like at home. We would recommend this property and know anyone would love it as much as we did.
Just would like to say that the service from Haven in Paris was excellent. The team answered all questions promptly and where always very helpful. The property was excellent and we had a wonderful stay. Nick and Sabine were wonderful hosts and we enjoyed the wine tour and tasting that Nick gave. We hope to return one day and enjoy the area again.
My family and I stayed a week at this wonderful house in Cairanne. Owners Sabine and Nick were very warm and welcoming. We used the house as a base to explore surrounding areas including Les Baux, Arles, Nimes and Avignon and had a fantastic time. Wish we had time to taste the wine produced at the estate. We will definitely try to return and do that in the future.
I loved EVERYTHING about our stay at the Cairanne property! The quality of the property, warmth and hospitality of the greeters, cleanliness and provisions prepared for us were all outstanding, and quite frankly, beyond our expectations... The pictures of the property do not begin to do it justice. Not only is it larger and more chic than the photos show, but no picture can convey the serenity and quiet elegance of our experience. And, the wine was not bad, either. ;-) Thanks again for everything.
The owners, Nick and Sabine Thompson, were gracious and helpful.The apartment, a 19th century building completely remodeled a few years ago, was spacious and comfortable. The location, in the heart of the Cote du Rhone appellation, was ideal for exploring small towns and villages, and was within easy distance of Avignon and Orange.
Property is situated in a lovely part of Provence and very central to all of the places you night want to see - Avignon, Montpelier etc. Nick and Sabine are wonderful hosts who go out of their way to make sure your stay is pleasant. Accomodation is clean and spacious with everything you could want for a long/short stay. Only one problem is internet access however they (Nick and Sabine) will let you use their computer if you want. It is more convenient to be able to use your own of course. The village only has 1 internet "cafe" (and I use the word loosely) which is open spasmodically. Excellent butcher in the village. Note from Haven in Paris - August 2010: Internet is coming soon to this property. Please inquire and we will let you know if it has arrived.
Haven In Paris made the whole reservation process very easy. Very informative and helpful people. The website is great and compels one to follow through with the rental. The property we rented is in the middle of a wonderful vineyard and is the restored horse barn of a working winery. Well equipped and well furnished providing a comfortable place to spend a week in Provence. The village of Cairanne is very quiet and has few services but there is plenty to do nearby.
We really enjoyed our stay in your beautiful holiday home. The owners did a great job of decorating the place and we would love to come back. We are convinced this place will be a huge success. The owners make great hosts and both have a talent of making people feel at ease and at home. Thank you for that. PS. The wines are really excellent
The villa was incredible. We found the area incredibly peaceful and the owners were very nice and accomodating. The area was beautiful. We loved to go into the small towns and their markets. Also, we found Cairanne to be a charming little town. We had a small issue on one evening when the oven did not work. But the owners came the next morning and immediately fixed it. Finally, I'll tell you we really loved the place and would love to stay there again another time with friends or to stay in one of your other properties in Paris.
We really enjoyed our stay. We really relax and hope to come back one day. We take with us the calmness of the countryside, and the feeling of great comfort. Our compliments to your fine style of decorating the house. Best wishes to you and your plans for the future.
Thanks for the "superbe holiday week" in your beautiful guest house! We had a wonderful time. See you soon!
