The Location

The house is right in the delightful village of Saignon, perched high over the Luberon valley, so it has that great view along the valley as well as being a minute's stroll to the amenities of a Provencal village - restaurants, a great bakery and basic groceries. Saignon is one of the little-known gems of the Luberon, unspoilt and preserved.

All the other picture-perfect 'perched' hill-top villages of the Luberon are within 30 minutes by car: Gordes, Roussillon, Lacoste, Oppede le vieux, Bonnieux, and Goult. Just beyond are the antiques capital of Isle sur la Sorgue and the very lovely Fontaine de Vaucluse.

The nearest town with supermarket, etc. is Apt, 7 minutes away, which also has a municipal pool. On Saturday mornings Apt market is the biggest market in the Luberon with up to 300 stalls. There is a market every day in one of the surrounding villages.

Within 90 minutes are Avignon, Aix-en-Provence, St Remy, Mont Ventoux, Les Baux de Provence, Orange, and the start of the Rhone wine trail at Chateauneuf du Pape.

You can make a comfortable day-trip of the Cote d'Azur from Monte Carlo to St Tropez, Marseille, the fishing village of Cassis and the calanques, Arles, Nimes, the Camargue, the Alps, the Gorges du Verdon, and the Rhone wine trail all the way to Lyon.

Home away from home

We had a great time staying at Belle Lumiére in the beautiful village of Saignon. The house was spotlessly clean and very well maintained. It was fully equipped with BBQ, wash machine, fridge. The spacious kitchen was very well outfitted. All the rooms were beautifully furnished and both terraces had great views. The location was perfect for touring Provence and it was a pleasure after a long day to return to the house and enjoy the evening on the terrace. The owners of the house were very accommodating and easy to deal with. The house manager was friendly and gave us a very warm welcome. She provided us with lots of information on what to see and do and was a great help to us. We would highly recommend Belle Lumiére to anyone.

Beautiful home and location

Our recent stay at Belle Lumiere was fantastic. The home is wonderful, with its stone features, great kitchen and lovely balconies. We received detailed instructions about how to get to Saignon, and were greeted by Joanna, who helped us get settled in and gave us tips on the local markets and places to go. Saignon is situated in the centre of the Luberon and it was easy to travel to other villages from that location. We would love to have extended our stay!

Stunning Belle Lumiere with ever changing light

A beautiful property with everything to make your stay comfortable . The house is extremely well equipped, very spacious and beautifully kept. Everything has been thought out so well. Lovely log fire for cooler evenings. The view from the terrace is quite wonderful and in any weather it is a delight. Amazing sunsets, and at this time of year the autumn colours are stunning. Even in a storm the view is exciting. I have stayed here in two contrasting seasons and enjoyed both equally. Being in the delightful village is a great bonus and nearby Apt is a delight with its weekly Saturday market. We always leave here wanting to return as soon as possible.
