Overview

Saint-Saturnin-les-Apt House Rental Photos and Description

6 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

**Note that during winter months, the house is rented as a 4 bedrooms-2 bathrooms only, as the downstairs space is used for outdoor furniture storage.**

Our design vacation home is tucked on the side of a quiet little hamlet, nearby the village of St-Saturnin-lès-Apt. Once a shepherd's stone house and barn renovated with love into a contemporary and authentic family home.

6 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, 2 half bathrooms 3 stories, private heated pool, ideal for 2 to 3 families, up to 12 guests. Note that the house is on 3 floors, with steep staircases and very little railing.

THE HOUSE

The house main living space is on the second floor. You enter into a voluminous space of 650 sq ft featuring the living room with wood burning fireplace, a dining area opening to the private terrace and an open floor kitchen. The kitchen has a central island, a large 6 burners range, dishwasher, fridge-freezer and microwave.

On this same floor is an entertainment room with TV and sofa, a guest bathroom and a large master bedroom (king bed) with a claw foot tub and a private bathroom.

Upstairs are 3 bedrooms (one with a queen bed and two with double twins) that share a bathroom with shower.

Downstairs, you will find a family suite consisting of 2 bedrooms (one queen bed, two twins) and 2 separate bathrooms, with its own 'salon' and fireplace that opens directly to the garden.

Wifi is available in the entire house. In addition, you will find a Bluetooth 'jambox' speaker in every adult bedroom to play your favorite music.

During winter season, the house is available as a 4 bedrooms-2.5 bathrooms only, as the ground floor is used to store our garden furniture.

THE GARDEN

The garden (13000 sq ft) opens up to vineyards and truffle oak trees rolling hills. A lawn and centennial olive tree greet you by the pool, where you can sunbathe or play ball. When lunch time approaches, harvest a hand full of aromatic herbs from the Provencal quaint squared garden.

The pool is heated (from mid-May to mid-October) and measures 30 x 12ft, with a side children's wading pool on one end.

A fully equipped summer kitchen with gas BBQ awaits your endless dinners with friends and family under the shade of the pergola.

Of course, the alley is perfect for pétanque, and a full set is stored for your pleasure by the summer kitchen.

Parking on the property for 3-4 cars is available and secured by an automated gate.

Beautiful stay at La Grande Bergerie!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 10 day stay at La Grande Bergerie! The pictures and descriptions given were accurate and as advertised. In addition the place was clean and very well maintained. This old farmhouse has been redesigned very tastefully.

We were a group of 8 adults and 4 children. It was very spacious with many living rooms and ample outdoor space. The kitchen was well stocked, many plates and glasses, and all the necessary cooking utensils and pots and pans. We could have used some proper wine glasses but that's me just being picky.

The owner was very helpful throughout the whole booking process and gave some excellent suggestions on their website about things to do in the area, including lunch at L'Estrade, an excellent restaurant in the nearby town of Saint Saturnin-Les-Apts. It was about a 20 minute walk to town. Saint Saturnin Les Apts is a small, quiet town, with less tourists, which was ok with us. There is a good butcher shop, a decent bakery, a good restaurant (L'Estrade), and the old ruins above town are worth walking to.

I would highly recommend La Grande Bergerie!

Owner's Response: Thank you! You are right about the wine glasses... I thought I'd choose an unusual shape but (as my husband already told me) wine purists will always prefer the classic "ballon". I will make sure to equip La Bergerie with those from now on!

A perfect vacation in Provence!

  • 5 of 5

This is an ideal vacation spot. The location is great, a short walk to town passed cherry orchards for croissants in the morning. Easy day trips to visit the many beautiful towns and open air markets. We also went on several great hikes so when you don't want to spend time in the car there are plenty of alternatives.

We had dinner most nights at the outside kitchen with a view of the rolling hills, truffle oak tree grove and watched the sunset. During the day the kids loved the pool and garden and the adults loved all the reading nooks. There are plenty of cozy communal places or the bedrooms are spacious, well appointed and quiet when you want to get away.

I highly recommend this place. The owners were attentive, the house was charming, spotless and the location can't be beat. We were two families sharing the house and we felt like we could have easily fit another family.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

La Grande Bergerie is the quintessential Provence experience. I had such a wonderful and comfortable time there! The location is great: private and secluded, but not too far from a small town where you can get the essentials like baguettes and pastries.

The place is tastefully designed, with plenty of room to lounge and chill out. The kitchen with the harvest dining table and authentic designer furniture were simply beautiful. The pool is a wonderful addition, as well as the lounge chairs nearby. There are even bikes for you to take out and roam around the neighborhood.

I highly recommend your visit to this heaven on earth!

Belle propriété dans une très belle région

  • 4 of 5

Belle propriété spacieuse, dans une magnifique région non loin des principaux villages à découvrir (Gordes, Roussillon)... Décoration soignée et chambres spacieuses. Très bonne réactivité en cas de problème de la part de Sandrine (pb de serrure réglé dans la journée). Environnement très calme. Attention à la proximité des maisons avoisinantes (en mitoyenneté d'un coté) et voisins vraiment très proches.

Owner's Response: Effectivement, La Bergerie se situe dans un petit hameau calme; donc non isolée et mitoyenne sur un coté, tout en restant sans visibilité directe.
