Outside relaxation areas and barbecue.

In the garden are a table tennis table in the shade, and a boules/petanque court.

 

Table tennis/ping pong in the shade by the pool.

There is a gated entrance and off-street parking.



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, bread 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, 10 minutes away. 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.

Villa Saignon

Myself and family of 7 stayed at Villa Saignon for 2 weeks in July 2014 – it is one of the best holidays we have ever had. The house and gardens are very well cared for by the owners, a lovely French couple who live not too far away. The pool area has nice comfortable sun loungers (not those cheap white plastic ones), is surrounded by a pretty garden along with a boules area and shaded table tennis table. The house has a large sheltered dining table and a separate comfortable seating area that we sat in every night to chat, play cards etc. There is also an immaculate large gas barbeque we used several times. The upstairs rooms are bright and comfortable with a shared large bathroom, the downstairs bedroom having an en-suite shower. The village tops a hill, so there was a breeze most nights which kept us cool and also the insects away. The charming village is just wonderful, a fine bakery/salon de the, a few places to eat out and lots of stairways and alleys to explore up to the viewpoint around which the village is built. Villa Saignon is a fabulous place to unwind, sunbathe and is superbly placed for short drives to many picturesque village of Provence – Gordes, Bonnieux, the spectacular Fort de Boux. We can't recommend it highly enough.

A great stay.

M. and Mme Allard the owners are the friendliest people you hope to rent from. The house is absolutely fantastic : loads of provencal charm and every amenity you can think of was provided. The indoors are great; the oudoors are fabulous. The photos don't do the house total justice!! Barely back in the States but we are already thinking of returning. Not a single complaint and lots of praise.
