Elegant, light-filled home, Avignon, France

Our perfectly located, beautifully furnished and fully renovated townhouse in Provence will be available for rent or exchange with a home in Hartford, CT starting May 15, 2018. Summer rates are higher than during the academic year and depend on period and length of stay. Please contact us for details.

The house is on a quiet street, just steps from Avignon's center and famous ramparts. Bakeries, butcher shops, greengrocers, Asian markets, the central post office and train station, numerous banks, schools, the university and even the Avignon Opera are all within easy walking distance. The neighbors are friendly and helpful.

We love the fact that our house faces south and is bathed on all three levels with warm, natural light. Ceilings are high, windows are tall.

The fully-equipped, open kitchen has custom cabinets, 5-burner range, dishwasher and American-style refrigerator with ice maker and filtered water dispenser.

Most of the furniture and light fixtures are Art Deco style from the 1930's. Mattresses, linens and towels are all virtually new.

Washer, dryer, additional toilet and small "summer kitchen" are in the basement, with direct access to the courtyard.

Please let us know if you'd like to see more photos.

About Me
We moved to France when Woody retired in 2011 as President of School Year Abroad so that our twin daughters could learn French and gain an international perspective. We love the fact that in Avignon we could walk to school, to the music Conservatory, to ballet school, even to the Opera House. To say nothing of wonderful shops and restaurants! In 2015-16 we lived in Taipei so the girls could gain understanding of their Taiwanese heritage. Woody taught English at Taipei American School while Pauline did research and studied Mandarin and Taiwanese. In July 2017 we will return to New England for the twins' last three years of high school. Pauline will write and do clinical work; Woody will be chief cook and bottle washer, and take care of our house in Boston and cottage in Maine. Ideally we'd like to find flexible tenants who will love our Avignon house as much as we do and who would perhaps be willing to let us return from time to time, during US school holidays, for example.
