Nestled in a pine forest opening onto an expansive and lovingly landscaped garden, Les Cigales is a contemporary single story luxury villa in Provence. The villa’s name comes from the sound of the cicadas—cigales in French—that play the soundtrack for summer evenings spent in the countryside. Les Cigales is located within minutes of the small town of Pernes Les Fontaines, with its shops, restaurant and amenities, and is also within easy reach of the major centers and attractions of Provence.
The grounds at Les Cigales include a heated swimming pool and a pool house. Alfresco living is a breeze with the outdoor living and dining areas, as well as the shower and fireplace that are outside. Recline and relax as you hear the sizzle from the barbeque Indoors, you will find a home entertainment system with satellite TV, an iPod dock and Wi-Fi access. A ping pong table is also included for your enjoyment. The villa is family friendly and provides baby equipment. Feel free to ask about the pre-stocking and personal chef options for the ultimate holiday experience.
The interiors of Les Cigales are modern, pristine and comfortable. The living room features modern artwork and lovely views from the floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors. The kitchen comes fully equipped with a large center island. The covered dining area extends the feeling of being outdoors.
Six fabulous bedrooms accommodate up to twelve guests at Les Cigales. Each bedroom includes an en-suite bathroom, air conditioning, TV and access to the terrace. Lovely modern accoutrements and linens help ensure a tranquil night of sleep.
The villa is located in the area of Mount Ventoux, which cycling enthusiasts often describe as the most challenging of all the epic Tour de France climbs. During your stay at Les Cigales, you too will see what makes this area of Provence so magnificent. Sight seeing recommendations include visiting the various shops and restaurants at Isle Sur La Sorgue, a city built around a series of canals, or venturing a little further to Avignon where you can explore the rich French history, including the Popes’ Palace.

Les Cigales is a beautiful villa located in a quaint little town in the middle of Provence. The villa is very nicely furnished and equipped. There are numerous gathering areas, both inside and out. This also ample space to allow for privacy. My wife and I were there with 2 other couples and it worked out terricfially. Pernes Les Fontaines offers a number of good dining options within a 5 minute ride of the villa and an even wider assortment of restaurants is available in sorges, about 15 minutes away. - Bob M., Massachusetts, USA
