The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur / Vaucluse region
This spectacular range of mountains rises over 1000 metres. At Mourre Nègre reached by foot, there are fine views towards Digne, the Durance valley and Apt basin, whilst in the far distance the L’Etang de Berre (next to Marseille airport!) and Mont Ventoux can also be seen. As well as lavender fields there is a fort at Buoux, where the cliff faces are world famous for rock climbing.
The Luberon is also known for its delightful villages such as Lourmarin, Menerbes, Lacoste and Bonnieux, the latter made famous by Peter Mayle’s ‘A year in Provence’ all have their own individual charm.
Gordes is a stunning perched village (19 kms), where you can visit the Abbey de Senanque, the Chateau de Gordes and the village des bories.
The Colorado Provencal runs from Rustrel to Roussillon where the quarried ochre is used in the colouring of its houses.
Provence is renowned for its markets; there is one to be found almost every day of the week providing an overwhelming choice of mouth watering fresh produce together with Provencal gifts and souvenirs. One of the largest takes place in Apt every Saturday, one of our favourites is at Coustellet on a Sunday, where all the produce sold is grown locally. Others of note include Forcalquier on Mondays and St Remy de Provence on Thursdays.
Further a field
Fontaine de Vaucluse (32kms), is a popular tourist village and also the source of the River Sorgue where you can either kayak or canoe to L’Isle sur La Sorgue, the antiques capital of Provence.
The historic walled city of Avignon (55kms), the gateway to Provence offers a wide selection of attractions including Palais des Papes, occupied by the Popes during the 14th Century, Pont St-Bénézet, the bridge mentioned in the rhyme ‘Sur le pont d’Avignon’ as well as a host of museums, churches and an array of boutiques, shops and restaurants. The world famous Avignon Festival takes place in July.
Les Baux de Provence (64kms) is a very popular tourist attraction with nearly two million visitors a year. This dramatic fortress sits on a spur of the Alpilles with views across to the Camargue, a vast flat wetland famous for its flamingos, black bulls and white horses. Be sure to visit the Cathedrale D'Image whilst there too.
The cosmopolitan town of Aix en Provence (65kms) is a must with its impressive buildings, up market boutiques and café atmosphere. Marseille (93kms), France’s premier port and oldest major city, centred on the Vieux Port, offers an insight into the multi cultural side of France as well as excellent shopping and dining experiences including bouillabaisse, a seafood gastronomy.
The Roman cities of Orange (68kms), Arles (83kms) and Nimes (98kms) are all worth visiting.
For the wine enthusiast the picturesque region of the Rhone Valley is a must with Chateauneuf-Du-Pape (69kms) being one of the most famous along side Vacqueyras, Gigondas and Beaumes de Venise.
The coast also offers delightful villages and beaches, such as Cassis
(114kms) Or you can head further east to the Cote D’Azur including Cannes, Antibes & Nice.
The region has so much to offer including theatre, the Arts and Music that we have not covered.
The St Saturnin les Apt area
St Saturnin Les Apt
This unspoilt village has a population of just over 2000 people, many of whom live here throughout the year, making it more vibrant out of season than some of it’s more touristy neighbours. It is a true Provencal village retaining much character dominated by a medieval ruined castle with its ramparts and towers and the 17th Century Windmill. Narrow streets, old stone houses with their original doors, water fountains and a central square, which is shaded by plane trees, all create a peaceful ambience.
The village has a market on Tuesday where you can buy fresh local produce as well as Provencal gifts, wine and clothing. There are also traditional ‘fetes’ celebrated, when there are displays of art, antiques and flowers in the village as well as the famous ‘Vide Grenier’ (similar to a car boot sale), which takes place annually on Bastille Day. The Fete Votive, three evenings of music and dancing takes place in August.
There are three bars, two hotels and five restaurants providing casual and more formal dining. An excellent Charcuterie, two Boulangeries and a ‘Spar’ supermarket offer a wide variety of products and there is also a chemist, Post Office, cash machine and newsagents.
The area, has been noted for its Olive Oil and the local Moulin, which has a small gift shop, is just outside the village as you approach from Apt. Sylla, the local wine co-operative sells excellent Cote du Luberon and Cote du Ventoux wines. It also has an excellent gift shop and ‘Cheese’ restaurant.
Locally to the village it is possible to indulge in a wide range of leisure pursuits, including tennis, horse riding, paragliding, cycling and hiking.

We had a wonderful stay at Les Cypres. The house was well-appointed, with everything we needed and gorgeous hillside views, and David and Karen were extremely helpful and great sources of information. It was just a short walk to town, where we enjoyed the four very good restaurants and stopped in often at the two boulangeries and little market. Even in the off season, there was plenty to do and see; St. Saturnin-les-Apt was a great location for day trips in all directions. We hope to be able to return again!
