We spent 9 nights at Le CLos des Sorgues using it as a base to explore Provence. It is ideally situated 15 minutes to the center of Avignon and within 30 minutes drive to all of the major towns/villages in Provence. This is an absolutely stunning home set in a 3 acre walled garden and surrounded by 30 acres of land. The garden is filled with orchards of cherries, apricots, pomegranates, etc. Many of which appear in wonderful homemade preserves with breakfast each morning. A beautiful new heated pool is also situated in a secluded area of the garden to allow for tranquil enjoyment.
All guest rooms are newly renovated (finished August 2011) and very spacious -- great attention given to every detail with quality materials used throughout. All rooms have very comfortable king-sized beds, wonderful new bathrooms, and private outdoor space (rooftop private patios in both upstairs rooms). Internet is fast and reliable. All rooms have guest controlled heating and air conditioning.
But at the end of our stay, as we reflect on what is surely one of the best B&Bs ever, the most enjoyable and memorable aspect was meeting, chatting, and dining with Thierry and Veronique -- two of the loveliest and warmest people you will ever have the pleasure of meeting.
If you are considering this accommodation -- book early as I can only imagine high season booking will go fast!
