Le 111 is a traditional 18th century village house with lots of history and character. Lying in the heart of Provence, nestled between Avignon, and the Mont Ventoux, Le 111 provides quiet and authentic south of France village life while being a few minutes away from a vibrant city.
The 3 south facing apartments which bask in the glow of the Provencal sunlight are set within the grounds of the owner's estate, dating back to the eighteenth century. The large swimming pool (which is the largest in the area) is shared by the guests at le 111.
Each apartment also features a private terraced area with outdoor dining and lounging furniture. The apartments have recently undergone extensive renovation.
The apartments are walking distance from the centre of the village which has excellent bakeries, bars, restaurants, and a supermarket. There is a traditional market every Sunday morning in the centre of the village where you can buy local delicacies and souvenirs.
Le 111's location is excellent for discovering Provence. Our guests love how easy it is to get to the main sites within 30 minutes and still have time to relax by the pool.

Saint-Paul is still a working hospital and they still do art therapy. You can see a collection of the patients work in the gift shop (they are also available for purchase).
We had a fantastic week in our one bedroom unit at Le 111. The pictures provided were up to date and the space was bigger than expected. The units have been renovated in the past year so everything is up to date.
Everything was spotless and we were well looked after with lots of attention to detail including wooden hangers and extra towels for the pool.
The wooden shutters provide excellent cooling and the french doors opening from the bedroom and kitchen/living area let in a pleasant breeze at night.
The olympic-type pool was a big plus after a day of sightseeing. We ate outside every day on our patio and overlooked the view of the pool, olive and fig trees as well as beautiful landscaping.The cicadas serenade you through the heat of the day. The local bakery has great croissants and baguettes that we picked up each morning...what a treat! Favourite local restaurant La Margarelle is within easy walking distance.
There was so much to see and do so we barely scratched the surface. We went to vineyards, toured ruins (favourite Les Ancestrales at Glanum), visited famous sites such as Pont D'avignon and our favourite Pont du Gard, had wonderful lunches by selecting the plats du jour (favourite La Reine Jeanne in St. Remy en Provence). The sun and light are an artist's inspiration and we visited the aslyum at St. Paul de Marisole where Van Gogh stayed and saw an exhibit of his worked projected on huge rock faces of a quarry at Cathedrale des Images. Les Ventoux mountains provide hiking opportunities.
Located about 20 minutes from Avignon, this gite combined the best of charming country living with easy access. We have recommended it whole heartedly to family and friends.
This a great little apartment. Ideal for a two people, yet having the facilities usually only found in bigger rentals, with the pool and outdoor area. Everything was immaculately clean and exactly as described in the web site. The rooms are spacious and full of character.
All the facilities needed can be found within 5 minutes walking in the village, which felt very secure and full of local character.
The owner, Alice, achieved just the right blend of availability and helpfulness without being intrusive. Living on the site and being there to greet us on arrival was reassuring.
The pool is large and well maintained and very clean.
The locality is full of places to visit. We did some adventurous hill walks and would advise getting some detailed maps and guide books before you venture out, if this is your interest, as French signage can be a bit hit and miss.
We hope to go back again in the future.

Our stay was just perfect. The property is immaculate with great facilities, just like the photographs. The kitchen is really well equipped, and everything in the apartment is in pristine condition. It's beautifully decorated and we loved having access to our own little terrace too. The property is really well maintained, there are gorgeous petunias and olive trees within the terrace and around the large pool and plenty of attention to detail throughout. Alice lives next door and was on hand for any questions. There was a lovely bottle of wine for us on arrival and a very comprehensive booklet of information about the property and the local area - we found this very useful. We ambled into the centre of the village every morning for coffee and croissants, everyone was very friendly. The village is ideally located, it really is a great base for exploring Provence. You will have a fantastic stay here!
St Saturnin is a typical small french village with the villa a 3 minute walk from the cafes and conveniences. The property has been accurately described and the owner, Alice is extremely helpful but still gives one independence and privacy.
The pool at the shallowest end is approx., 4' deep and children would need supervision. There is a self locking gate surrounding the pool for safety
sake and all is very clean and attractive. Everything has safety in mind and we felt very secure whilst visiting. A peaceful haven at the end of exciting days since so many places to see within a 50 mile radius. Avignon being the closet.
We shall be back and will certainly have no hesitation in recommending to friends.
this was one of the nicest places I have ever stayed! Anything you could think of was available including a lovely village where bread and pastries are available freshly baked every morning!!!
Site seeing in the area was fun and some of the nearby villages have amazing historical sites. I would return to 111 anytime I am in the area!!!
We had a super time in our apartment. There was all the equipment we needed. Comfortable bed, little sitting area, big drawers for our clothes plus use of the pool. Best of all was the host Alice. She was most helpful and fun to be around. The village was close, walk to everything. The village folk were helpful and friendly.
Bienvenue to the Comtat Venaissin, this southern French enclave where the Popes once lived for more than 100 years. The area is world renowned for its spectacular scenery, award winning wines and rich cultural life. The Popes didn't choose this place by mistake. With mild winters and the 3000 hours of sunshine a year, Provence will satisfy any one's lust for sunshine and warm weather.
A base near Avignon also means you are a stone's throw away from the French riviera, the southern Alps and in the middle of Peter Mayle country.
Other Activities: Theatre and Music Festivals, Historic Sites, Vineyards, Museums, Markets
Golf: The nearest 18 holes is the Golf of Chateaublanc (6km away)
15min drive from the apartment is the fancier Provence Country Club with its 18 holes and beautiful club house.
Finally another very nice 18 hole Golf Du Grand Avignon is 5min away.
Ski: The summer-winter ski resort of Le Mont Serein , on the northern face of the Mont Ventoux , offers 9 ski lifts and 12km of ski slopes in winter. In summer, ski on grass and hiking are popular activities on the slopes of the 1912m Giant of Provence.
