Why Stay with us?: Having holidayed in Provence we have stayed in a variety of gites and houses. These experiences, some good some less so, inspired us to create something special for our guests. Enticed by the beauty of this region and French way of life we settled in St Saturnin Les Apt in 2005.
We offer our two one bedroom gites and also have two 3 bedroom houses including Le Chene, contact us for details.
St Saturnin Les Apt is one of the few unspoilt hillside villages in the Luberon, Provence, just 7 kilometres from Apt and close to Bonnieux and Gordes. The historic towns of Avignon and Aix en Provence are about 45 minutes away by road.
Saint 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.
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 Local Wine.

David & Karen Taylor purchased this cottage in 2008
Why David & Karen Taylor chose Saint-Saturnin-les-Apt
When we first walked onto our land in 2005 we knew from that minute we had to have it! Little did we know of the challenges ahead let alone our appalling language skills!
For us it has three big selling points
Location - walking distance of the village
Location - Facing South with views of the Luberon
Location - peace, quiet & privacy.
What makes this cottage unique
The infinity pool, and our evening drinks by the pool seem very popular where our clients can meet each other and swap stories and enjoy a glass of wine as the sun sets.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Attention to detail, the friendly atmosphere and ideal location make this holiday villa hard to beat. There was plenty of room for 3 generations to holiday happily together and the pleasant outdoor space meant that it was not always easy to drag ourselves away to enjoy the beauty of the Luberon. David and Karen have created something very special which will have visitors returning time and again.
