Having rented many times in various countries over the last 5 years, I can honestly say this home is one of the best ever. The spaces are very large and the high ceilings add a sense of grandeur. The furnishings are very comfortable and art and decor are unmatched. The finishes are very high quality and the kitchen and bathrooms are complete with superior fixtures.
Apt was such a great town from which to base our exploration of Provence. It's close to many delightful villages but it seems very local and not at all overrun with tourists. We always felt good coming back to our luxury retreat in Apt after a day in Avignon, Arles, San Remy and many others. (I recommend climbing the hill across the river for a lovely view of Apt from the Chapel.) We also found that the shops and the Saturday market had the best prices around. (The Saturday market folds up at 13:00, so don't hesitate too much!)
Karen provided invaluable suggestions for towns and restaurants we would have otherwise missed. Her support and kindness really made our week complete. Thank you, Karen! We hope to return to this Provençal gem again soon.
