About Karen Pfrunder-Vanderwoude

I'm a Canadian who fell in love with this region. I live with my family between Toronto and Paris.

Karen Pfrunder-Vanderwoude purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Karen Pfrunder-Vanderwoude chose Apt

I chose Apt because it is an active town all year round. When I first visited this building I understood it's potential with it's 12 foot high ceilings, the full lenth windows, original 17th century fronton paintings incorporated in the wall and original fresques. We treated the restoration of this apartment with an architect who chose to keep the 17th century feeling but in a luxurious way. It is situated in the old part of the city next to the famous Saint Anne Cathedrale of Apt. We are surrounded by pre-historic ruins. Apt and the whole region is filled with Roman ruins. Within very close distances of villages like Bonnieux, Isle sur la Sorge, Gordes, Rousillon, Goult, Saignon, Saint Remy de Provence, Lourmarin, etc.....just to mention a few. A region rich in the arts with the festivals of Avignon, Aix en Provence, the piano festival at the la Roque-d'Anthéron. A region rich in arts, theatre, music, food, nature and light!

What makes this apartment unique

If you are spending some time in the area this luxurious apartment with it's extremely high ceilings is the perfect place to come home to after a day of driving, and walking the region. We have made sure that your comfort comes before everything.

Even better than the photos !! SUPERB !!

  • 5 of 5
Si estas pensando en unas vacaciones en La Provenza y buscas un lugar donde poder descansar tras las excursiones diarias, no encontrarás ninguno mejor. Imaginate encontrarte un viejo palacio del s.XVII con todas y cada una de las comodidades del s. XXI, con muebles y calidades de superlujo... y lo puedes alquilar...

Eso es lo que te vas a encontrar en casa de Karen... Lujo, paz, amplitud, comodidad, sentirte como en casa...

La casa es incluso mejor de lo que reflejan las fotografías. Es, sencillamente, soberbia !!

Gracias Karen por dejarnos disfrutar una semana en tu maravillosa casa provenzal. Si alguna vez volvemos a esta parte de Francia, no lo dudaré ni un segundo y nos quedaremos de nuevo allí.

If you are considering a holiday in Provence and looking for a place to unwind after your daily excursions, you will not find any better. Imagine to find an old XVII century palace with every one of the comforts of s. XXI. Luxury furniture and top high-end qualities ... and you can rent it ¡¡

That's what you'll find at Karen´s house ... Luxury, peace, space, comfort, feel at home ...

The house is even better than the photographs show. It is simply SUPERB !!

Thanks Karen for letting us enjoy a week at your wonderful Provencal house. If we are ever in this part of France, I did not hesitate a second and we'll stay there again.

Best Vacation rental ever

  • 5 of 5
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.

Absolutely Gorgeous Apartment

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay in your apartment tremendously. It's absolutely beautiful, and by far the nicest apartment we've ever rented. It was immaculate, the beds were very comfortable, and everything worked properly (you'd be surprised how many times those three needs are not met). We'd love to return someday, hopefully we will.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
I want to thank Karen for providing such a nice apartment for us. We stayed in Apt for 4 days(too short). We stayed in 6 different towns. I decided this year to not cut corners in our place of sejour. My wife compliment me that each place we gone to was better than the last. That I out did myself this year. But Karen's apartment was the best. It was not extravagantly decorated, but extremely good taste in its composition. From the elegant lighting, the well stock kitchen(we cooked the first night we arrived and we found everything needed). The cleaniness of the apartment. I don't usually walk barefoot, I didn't, but I won't think twice about doing it. Most places you goto, you have to adopt. But Karen's apartment is like you are home. I won't think twice referring this place to anyone.

Apt is a very good base to visit Province. Nice little hill to drive to Louriman, Corcouron, Saignon. Gordes, Ils sur la Sourges, and Avignon the other direction. I been to Province the last 16 years. Karen's apartment is my favorite.

I wish I could be more discriptive. But this is the best.

A wonderful experience.

  • 5 of 5
We spent three weeks in this lovely apartment in Apt and enjoyed every minute of it. It's large, bright, clean,well equipped, very nicely furnished and quiet. It was a treat. I have no hesitation recommending it.
Apt's central location made it a perfect home base for exploring the region. It was an easy day trip to the Pont du Gard, Sénanque, Silvacane, or any of the dozen mediaeval hilltop villages in the area. And Apt itself was fun to explore. It's a lively, pleasant town with a terrific Saturday market.

Une éxperience éxceptionelle

  • 5 of 5
Chère Karen,

we don't need to tell you how gorgeous your apartment is - you know.
However we want to share how much we enjoyed it.
The bright sun-light through the window-shutters, the natural touch of the wooden floor and the doors and all the art-work - awesome.
The most tantalizing experience however is your generosity of sharing your personal setup - outmost appreciated.
