The Location

Saint-Saturnin-les-Apt, a strikingly beautiful village 10 minutes walk away.

The house is in quiet countryside just 700 metres (10-15 minutes walk) from the stores and restaurants of the beautiful medieval perched village of Saint-Saturnin-les-Apt. This is one of the Luberon's famed hill-top villages, with spectacular view from the castle ruins and chapel above. It has everything you need from a village, including ATM and post office. There is no need to get in the car for a morning baguette or hearty dinner.

All the other picture-perfect 'perched' hill-top villages of the Luberon are within 20 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.

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.

There is a market every day in one of the surrounding villages.

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.
