The Curious Writer and Guide to Food, Wine, Cheese, & Travel in Provence

Madeleine Vedel is a writer, photographer and teacher. Over a peripatetic life she has become an accomplished goat cheese maker, a culinary tour guide in Provence, a translator and writer of articles and stories. Trained in France, she brings her culinary, wine and cheese know-how across the Atlantic to Northern Michigan. During the winter, she organizes culinary tours out of her home in Avignon, France.

Provence Home Rental

My home is rented at the moment. But should a possible future rental be of interest to you, feel free to contact me. It is likely that I will be living there again  - at least for the winter months - from the fall of 2021 and will have at least two bedrooms for rent. I will also be renting the full house during the months of June - September.

The house is located on the Ile de la Barthélasse , Avignon - an island in the Rhône River. Super convenient, it is 5 min to town (15 door to door to the closest cinema); 10 minutes from the train station, and easy driving distance to wineries (Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Costières de Nîmes, les Baux de Provence, Gigondas and more), Roman monuments, the Pope's Palace & great schools. Close to everything, but in the quiet country surroundings of wheat fields, fruit orchards and tree covered walking paths by the Rhône. Pets are welcome. FYI - for Tango afficionados, there are numerous milongas each week at an easy drive.  The skill level is high, the welcome warm.
