The Luberon region
Ideally situated for exploring the many beautiful well-known villages of the area including Bonnieux, Lacoste, Roussillon, Gordes, Menerbes, Rustrel, Saignon and Fontaine de Vaucluse. Visit a different market every day in the area including the famous Apt market or Isle sur le Sorgue, renowned for it's antiques. Travel a little further to the historic city of Avignon with it's magnificent Papal palace and bridge. 90 minutes wil get you to the Pont du Gard, Uzes, the Camargue or to the coast and Marseilles. The immediate area is also renowned for it's walking and cycle routes
The village of St Saturnin-les-Apt 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 with lots of character. The skyline is dominated by a medieval ruined chateau and the 17th Century Windmill. Narrow streets, old stone houses, water fountains and a central square. There are bars, two hotels and restaurants. 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 newsagent. The local co-operative Cave can be found in nearby Apt where you can buy your wine and associated gifts.
