We are busy getting ready for our upcoming trip to Provence, making final reservations and planning activities.  With two adults and five kids (two are on loan from their parents), organization is the name of the game.

Domaine du Crestet will be our home for two weeks.  This lovely old wine estate is located 3 km south of Vaison-la-Romaine and consists of five fully-equipped rentals.

With views of Mount Ventoux from the patio plus accommodations for eight, the Murier house will be the perfect home-base for day trips to Avignon, Orange, and Pont du Gard, just to name a few.

Swimming and tennis are available, plus a table d’hôte and wine tasting are offered at a community table in the courtyard during the week.  Count us in!

Our plans include kayaking under Pont du Gard and attending  Les Fééries du Pont, a fantastic fireworks display set to music. We will shop the Tuesday market in Vaison, visit the calanques in Cassis, and of course, stop in at wineries.  Les Halles market in Avignon is on the list, as is Gordes.

If anyone has recommendations for us, please share them!  We would love the input!  We leave next Friday, so soon I will be sharing our adventures with you from Provence!
