Read other posts here and you'll see that I'm based in the Provencal countryside near Isle-sur-Sorgue in the Vaucluse. A beautiful area with a great climate. Many friends have holidayed here, staying in the apartment adjoining my house. After several years of organising and delivering free holidays in this way I'm pretty experienced at all that goes with hosting visits, including translation and taxi services. So I'm inclined to invite paying guests now too, for those of you who may be looking for a lovely place to stay, in a great region, with the sea (and swimming pool obviously), horseriding, golf, local markets, medieval towns and villages and Roman ruins close by. There are masses of festivals too, ranging from the internationally known Avignon Festival to smaller but excellent festivals in towns like Pernes les Fontaines and surrounding villages. The range is very wide - festivals of music, dancing, theatre in the street, strawberry festivals, melon festivals, cheese festivals, and wine of course.
If you want to spend some time here and learn French, or English if you're French or other nationality, that would work too. Contact me for details that can be arranged to suit your plans. (Just use the Comment box.) I've taught English in Rome and Canterbury and have friends here who teach French. And if you don't want to learn French or anything else but just have a blissful holiday, that's very easy here too. Airports nearby are Avignon, Marseille, Nimes - lowcost airlines to get here from the UK are Easyjet, Ryanair, and Flybe. Or Aerlingus from Ireland.
