including medical, fire, police, anti-poison center and
an English speaking crisis line. Suggestion: print the list of
numbers and keep them handy.
Organic winery. Le Grand Jaquet. 2 minutes from La Peyriere.
To get there, you turn right (direction Carpentras)
when you leave the property. When you come to the stop sign, you
turn left (the opposite of going to Carpentras).
When you once more come to a stop (at the end of that small road),
you take a sharp right, and then immediately
take the first driveway left. You have reached Le Grand Jaquet. Very nice people, and organic
wines - available for tasting.

Vincent Van Gogh:
Although Arles claims it is Van Gogh's mecca, the truth
is that nothing is left of him and Arles has NO pictures of Van

who are we and how did we get started with La Peyriere,
stone villa with pool in the heart of Provence?
part of an adventure neither of us ever imagined.
Philippe worked in senior management, Elsa as a professor.
And then we decided to take on La Peyriere.
We are planning to write much on this - but for now just to say
we have met great guests and intend to stay with La Peyriere
for a long time.
