Belle Lumiere - Location

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.
