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.

The apartment was very spacious and has been furnished in impeccable taste by the owners, who are extremely helpful but also unobtrusive: if you need them, they are available quickly, but they do not hover! This apartment has the bright colors of Provence - reds and golds - giving it a very luxurious feeling, but at the same time, the ambiance is casual, perfect for a vacation apartment. A gift bottle of wine awaited us upon our arrival, a nice touch which made us feel instantly at home. Le 111 is on a quiet street in the middle of a village and is a five-minute walk to a delicious bakery to buy the best croissants and brioches I've ever eaten. Everything is within an easy drive from the village – in less than an hour in any direction heading out from St. Saturnin took us to more different places than we could visit in one day. The very large pool right outside our apartment door made us debate each day whether we wanted to go out sight-seeing or lounge by the pool! Usually we solved this dilemma by doing both: sightseeing early in the day, followed by lunch and a dip in the pool. The weather is warm enough in June to eat outside, and we did that often, using the little table and chairs so thoughtfully provided by our hosts. The week passed by far too quickly, and we are looking forward to returning at the earliest possible moment, as we felt we only scratched the surface of this wonderful corner of France.
This is our second visit to this property and again we've enjoyed such a wonderful holiday here. The property is perfect for us - clean and well-equipped and so nice to have our own little terrace, where we ate all our meals, even on windy days! There is plenty to see and do in this area, we visited Avignon and Nimes, went to the markets in Uzes, Isle sur la Sorgues and Gordes, and it's always nice to come back to the pool to cool off. The owner is the perfect hostess, very welcoming, always there if you need anything, but also discreet. We very much hope to return to this property next year and would recommend it to friends and family.
The location, ambience, aesthetics and amenities of this wonderful place ensured that our whole family had a wonderful time. Our collective and separate interests meant that we could relax together on the balcony over supper, find vintage pieces in nearby villages, play sports, walk, drive and lounge in really special places. The host and fellow residents meant privacy and friendliness in perfect balance.
I recently spent a week at Le111 as part of a family/friends group of women who wanted to explore Provence. The apartment I stayed in was immaculate and kitchen well equipped. The WiFi worked well and I was surprised to see a TV which came in handy to watch the World Cup highlights at night. Situated within a few minutes walk of the small village of St. Saturnin we were never without fresh croissants, brioche, fruit for breakfast or bottles of Rose wine,sausages,cheese, olives for lunch/dinner. The picnic table in front of the apartments was ideal for camaraderie and sharing the day's experiences and the gorgeous sparkling large pool a real treat after a long day of touring. The owner, Alice was most welcoming and very knowledgeable about the area. I hope to return to Provence to explore further and will definitely stay at Le111 again.
Le III is beautiful, quiet, clean and spacious, and perfectly located for exploring the area around Avignon. My friends and I took day trips to Fontaine de Vaucluse, St. Remy, Les Baux, and Pont du Gard, among other fascinating destinations within about an hour or less of St. Saturnin.
St. Saturnin is a typical French village with wonderful bakeries, butcher shops, and a weekly fresh market--everything you need to cook and eat on your patio at Le III. There are also a couple of good restaurants in the village, and of course many more in the vicinity.
The owner Alice is a font of knowledge and recommendations about the area.
We spent the first two weeks of August 2013 at Le 111(3) and have had the best holiday. It is the perfect base for exploring this part of Provence, with so many wonderful places of interest to visit, all within an hour's drive: Pont du Gard, Avignon, Les Baux, Aix and beautiful markets at Gordes, L'Isle sur la Sorgues, Uzes and St. Remy.
We tended to go out visiting in the morning so that we could come back and relax by the welcoming and superbly clean pool in the afternoon.
We also enjoyed the facilities in the little town of St. Saturnin - its 4 boulangeries, the local Bar and wonderful pizzas from the takeaway pizza restautrant!
The apartment at Le 111(3) suited us perfectly, with everything we needed and it was great to have our own terrace upstairs, where we ate all our meals. The description and photos were very accurate and Alice was the perfect host - very helpful and there if you needed to ask her anything, but unobtrusive. We definitely want to return to Le 111, hopefully next year!
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.

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.
