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.
