Welcome to Maison Cerisaie, a beautifully renovated 18th-century farmhouse which sits within a gorgeous walled garden, offering a fantastic base for exploring Provence. Maison Cerisaie boasts four delightful bedrooms and lovely living spaces, as well as fantastic outside space with an alfresco dining barn. It is perfect for families and groups of friends alike who want to relax, rejuvenate and spend time in each other’s company in this wonderful region. The farmhouse is close to the charming village of Pernes-les-Fontaines in the heart of Provence and very close to Mount Ventoux in Vaucluse, a land lost in time. As well as a wonderful array of shops, bars and restaurants, this characterful village boasts no less than forty fountains that you can discover following the ‘fountain trail’. The most beautiful are the Gigot and Cormoran fountains, which date back to the 18th century.

Maison Cerisaie is a period property with charm and style, a comfortable nest where you will immediately feel at home. You can invite the grandparents and bring the generations together in a timeless retreat. The farmhouse is built on three levels and has been decorated in calm, neutral tones, blending beautifully with ancient beams and age-old fireplaces. You will discover terracotta and cool stone floors sprinkled with antiques and vintage furnishings. The ground floor is home to a charming small living room with an open fireplace, the main living room, a delightful kitchen diner, a cloakroom and a laundry room with a shower. The main living room also enjoys an open fireplace as well as characterful beams, squishy sofas and armchairs and two sets of French doors opening to the gardens. The country-style kitchen diner is very spacious, enjoying an excellent range of appliances and a farmhouse-style dining table and chairs. It is a happy, sociable place where your chefs will feel very at home preparing a feast.

The first floor boasts two double-bedroom suites, both with double beds and en-suite bathrooms. One of the bathrooms offers a shower, and the other enjoys a bath and shower. The remaining bedrooms are on the second floor with sloping ceilings. One boasts a comfy double bed, and the other can be set up with twin beds or a large double bed with a shared shower room for them both.

Though Maison Cerisaie enjoys delightful interiors, the real magic happens outside. The extensive mature gardens are beautifully cared for and are sprinkled liberally with towering cypress trees, olives, shrubs and numerous fountains to add a soothing air of tranquillity. A large swimming pool is surrounded by luxury loungers, parasols and greenery. It is a wonderful spot to relax with your holiday books and some chilled glasses of rose, feeling totally away from all the stresses and strains of everyday life. There are several shaded areas to sit and relax in and a fabulous barn with a lounge and dining area and a barbecue. With its beamed vaulted ceiling, exposed stonework and outdoor kitchen area, it is an extremely sociable spot where you will probably spend most of your evenings. To the front of the house, you will find a cherry orchard as well as plenty of parking space.

Maison Cerisaie enjoys a wonderful, peaceful location within walking distance of Pernes-les-Fontaines, a beautiful historic village full of monuments, fountains, cafes, bars and restaurants. Its forty fountains are all different, some colossal and some much more discreet. Some are listed on France's inventory of historical monuments. The ramparts of the village have remained intact, including the 'Gate of Our Lady', dating back to the 14th century, adorned with two towers overlooking the river. You will discover a small chapel from the early 16th century on the pretty bridge over the Nesque. Within the town walls, you will enjoy charming cobbled streets, shady squares and lots of small chapels. The clock tower from the 12th century Counts of Toulouse castle offers fabulous views of the Comtat plain and Mount Ventoux. The village hosts many festivals, concerts and exhibitions, including the Folklories Pernes Music, Font Arts, the Antiquarian Book Fair, walks with lanterns, photographic exhibitions and a July pottery exhibition.
 
The mighty Avignon is also nearby to Maison Cerisaie. For seventy years, in the early 1300s, Avignon was the centre of the Roman Catholic world and was the seat of papal power. It has been left with an impressive legacy of architecture, including the famous World Heritage-listed palace known as the Palais des Papes. The town is also famous for its annual arts festival, the largest in France, which takes place in July. The town enjoys a magnificent medieval bridge, Pont St-Benezet, which is otherwise known as Pont d'Avignon. The bridge was completed in 1185 and is 900m long, linking Avignon with Villeneuve-les-Avignon. It was rebuilt several times before all but four of its twenty-two spans were washed away in the 1600s, leaving the far side marooned in the middle of the Rhone. There are wonderful views of the bridge from Rocher des Doms Park, Pont Edouard Daladier and Ile de la Barthelasse's Chemin des Berges.

L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue is a fabulous, characterful Provence market town that boasts a fantastic collection of restaurants, cafes, bars, boutiques, shops, antique centres, galleries and a fabulous historic centre. It enjoys the name 'The Venice of Provence' for its numerous canals but is also known as the 'antique capital of France'. Hundreds of stores and stalls open every Sunday selling collectable bric-a-brac and serious antiques. The town hosts an International Antiques Fair twice a year, at Easter and in August. Sitting on the Sorgue River, there are many waterside eateries, and it is blessed with attractive water wheels that are still in working order. In August, there is a lovely floating market in addition to the Sunday morning market.

During your stay, you should visit the village of Gordes. With honey-toned houses spiralling down from its splendid medieval castle, it is easy to see why Gordes is considered to be one of the most beautiful villages in Provence. With a wonderful selection of cafes, restaurants, ancient buildings, shops, bars and phenomenal views over the surrounding vineyards, orchards and mountains, you will be drawn to this magical village. In summer, the village hosts vibrant cultural events. There is plenty to visit nearby, including the lavender photo opportunity, Senanque Abbey, the Cellars of Saint Firmin Palace, and its Church. The hamlet of 'Les Cabanes', 4km from Gordes, is now known as the Village des Bories. Sitting on the slopes of the Monts de Vaucluse, it is interesting to visit and was linked to seasonal agricultural work. It was built at the beginning of the 17th century, testifying to an exceptional ancestral art of building.

Maison Cerisaie is a fantastic property for a family holiday. The farmhouse is very spacious, and the second living space can be used as a play area for little ones. Children love the pool, the gardens and finding the fountains. Similarly, they love taking the 'fountain trail' in Pernes-les-Fontaines to see if they can find all of the fountains. It is great having the village so close. Little ones can help with the breakfast run of French bread and croissants.
 
In Avignon, a little tourist train takes families to the main sights, including the Palais des Papes, the famous bridge and the winding, pretty back streets of the Old City. There are also hop-on-hop-off buses that children enjoy or horse-drawn carriages. Children also enjoy river cruises, canoe trips or a boat shuttle across the Rhone to Barthelasses Island. On the island, there are beautiful views across to Avignon, a pony and horse riding club, bikes for hire, an Olympic size swimming pool and mini golf. The boat shuttle leaves just east of the Saint Benezet Bridge, better known as the famous Pont d'Avignon.

Families can visit the Palais des Papes and pick up a HistoPad, which offers a specially designed treasure hunt and games for children. Just above the Palais is Rocher des Dom, a lovely park with wonderful views, a pond with ducks and swans, and play and picnic areas. There are also several museums in Avignon that children enjoy, including The Musee Requiem, a natural history museum. In summer, a giant Ferris wheel is installed on the river bank, and there is a carousel near the Palais des Papes. Children also enjoy picking up food in the covered food market. There are a number of annual festivals, including the Festo Pitcho at Easter, with a fancy dress parade, shows and performances.
 
Provence is a fantastic destination for families. The region's picture-postcard villages are wonderful to explore, each offering charming cafes, patisseries selling delicious goodies, and wonderful buildings from the past. There are so many villages to stop at, including Lacoste, Gordes, Goult, Bonnieux, and more. There are plenty of sightseeing options in the nearby towns, many of which enjoy old-fashioned carousels and playgrounds. Children love shopping in the markets, buying fresh bread and cheese and lots of fruit, plus souvenirs to take home. During a trip to Provence, children also learn about the many impressionist artists that made their homes there, such as Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso and Paul Cezanne. In Arles, visitors can dine at the famous Cafe Van Gogh, which was the focus of his famous Cafe Terrace at Night.
 
The splendour of Roussillon should not be missed. There are so many shades of ochre to enjoy across this hillside village. It is bright and beautiful, and children love wandering around the spiralling streets. At the top of the village, there are amazing panoramic views across the valley to the Grand Luberon, the slopes of Mont Ventoux and the plateau of the Vaucluse.
