A newly restored 45m2 studio with terrace, situated on the second floor of an ancient stable. Mezzanine with a double bed and downstairs a comfortable sofa bed that can accommodate one more person.

The glass terrace doors, the three skylights and the five meter high ceilings give the place a light and spacious feel. A mix of ancient stones, iron and wood...Air conditioning.

I also have another, similar, property advertised on this site, property n° 15378.

About Les Redons: Here in the hamlet 'Les Redons' we are 23 year-round residents. That number swells to a stunning, maybe, 50 in the summer time. It's one of the few truly unspoilt places left in the Luberon. What attracted me to this place is that it seems a bit frozen in time as well as it's great friendly feel. The houses are all hundreds of years old and made of stone. The countryside surrounding the hamlet is stunning, with vineyards, olive groves and lavender fields. There are lots of small hiking trails leading through the fields, up into the mountains behind, right on the doorstep. We are located 2,5 km from a great perched, medieval village, St. Saturnin, where you can spend days exploring the local history, discovering it's winding streets and admiring the great views... Less than a 10 minute drive will take you to the famous villages Roussillon, Gordes, Bonnieux, Menerbes and Lacoste...

More about the area: St. Saturnin-lès-Apt has a population of about 2.500 souls and there you can find almost everything you need; a grocery store, a butcher, bakeries, restaurants and cafés as well as a tourist information. The pool in the village is open during the school holidays in July and August and it's very nicely kept.

The biggest town nearby is Apt, 10 kilometers from here, where there is a fantastic market, one of the biggest, on Saturday mornings. There you can find everything: fruit and veggies, olives and olive oil, cheese, wine, clothes, jewellery, plants, baskets... All the goodies of Provence!

And even more: The village and the surrounding area, rich in history, invite to unlimited discoveries. There are all kinds of cultural events and festivals during the high season, in St. Saturnin and in the neighbouring towns and villages. There are concerts of all sorts, for all tastes, as well as theatre, art exhibitions and cinema... The theatre festival in Avignon is enormous and so is the piano festival in La Roque d'Antheron, the opera festivals in Aix-en-Provence and in Orange, all internationally acclaimed. Then of course there are the wine tours and the wine tasting... But I'll stop now. If you need any further information, please don't hesitate to contact me!

COZY RETREAT FOR 2 IN THE CHERRY ORCHARDS

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed staying at the cozy and bright apartment in Les Redons for a week in April 2013. There's enough room for a couple, but you probably won't linger too long in the apartment. Outside in April the sloping orchards surrounding the small hamlet are ablaze with white cherry blossoms and buzzing with industrious bees. Small hill towns with walking paths, gorges with valleys full of roman ruins, red rock canyons and lively town markets all beacon. Lots of photographic opportunities.

The apartment is imaginatively converted from an old stone farm building: there is a convoluted entrance hall and then a steep staircase up. Another ladder stair leads to a loft (watch your head on the beam as you step onto the loft platform!) where there's a comfortable bed under a low roof. The bathroom is on the main level which also has the only non-skylight window -- the door out to the small balcony. On the balcony you'll find a couple of chairs, a view down to the quiet street and a small electric BBQ -- great for our lamb chops! The kitchen is along one wall, is small and basic. There's no dishwasher and curtains cover the plumbing. Just a couple of nits: the (Ikea) knives were a bit dull and there wasn't a kettle. According to our host Eva, the recent road work had stirred up the local ant population so there was powder on the floor to combat them -- they didn't bother us much. The apartment has a good WiFi Internet connection, a radio, and no TV. It was clean and very well maintained.

It is a good walk into St Saturnin-les-Apt, but a very short drive -- you'll want to have a car if you stay. Basic groceries, bread, cheese and good weekly market in St Saturnin, but we did more major shopping in Apt -- not far by car.

Our hosts Eve and Patrick were very friendly and approachable. On arrival Eva welcomed us with a tour of the apartment and left us with a bottle of wine. Eva has an excellent and inexpensive mechanism for payment by North Americans where bank transfers are a big expense. Her English is excellent having lived in NYC in a previous life! We enjoyed aperitifs with Eva and Patrick one evening and learned of their life path to this corner of France.

La Remise is a comfortable and affordable place from which to tour this corner of Provence that we would recommend to anyone.

FOR THOSE WHO LOVE TO REST IN PIECE :-)

  • 5 of 5
Actually there is nothing to criticize with this appartment - if you want to spend your hollidays outside the big tourist centers and cities to calm down from the pace of normal life. Since this was absolutely what we wanted to, we were very happy with this appartment.

When we arrived (it was already a bit late due to some traffic jams) we had a very warm welcome there. In the fridge there were a bottle of wine as well as some olive dips.

We felt just like at home from the very first moment. Even if the appartment is not very big, there is nearly everything you need to have a nice life. In the kitchen there are very enough dishes and cutlery, for the longer stay there is a washing machine and to prepare a romantic dinner you have a small barbecue on the balcony. Everything is clean, functional and nicely arranged. I am not sure, but maybe there was no TV - we don't use it anyway, but for some people this maybe important. For us more important was the good internet connection.

We can not only recommend the appartment, but also the landlord :-). If you want to chat or need some advice, Eva helps you very much and you can feel that she is loving to deal with her guests. But on the other hand you don't feel unfree in the sense that she is all the time around you. This makes the good feeling complete! Just take this appartment if you could take it ;-) ...

Just one addition which didn't apply to us: For older people who are not used to climb steep stairs this appartment would maybe not the right one as there are 2 of (one to come into the appartment and one to go to bed). If you are uncertain you maybe should contact Eva.

RUNDUM HERRLICH - IT WAS GREAT !!!

  • 5 of 5
Wir waren zu zweit im Juli 2012 für eine Woche in der Ferienwohnung. Sie ist sehr liebevoll und modern eingerichtet, sehr sauber und entspricht genau den schönen Fotos auf dieser Seite. Die Umgebung ist einfach wunderschön und äußerst ruhig. Die Vermieter sehr symphatisch, freundlich und zurückhaltend - bei Problemen oder Fragen jedoch jederzeit nebenan erreichbar. Wir verlebten einen perfekten Urlaub und werden auf jeden Fall wiederkommen. Vielen Dank Eva and Patrick!

We stayed in July 2012 for one week in the apartment. It is very nicely furnished and modern, very clean and complies exactly with the photos on this page. The surrounding area is just beautiful and extremely quiet. The landlady is very likable and friendly. If you have problems or questions she is reachable any time next door. We spent a perfect holiday and will be back for sure. Thank you Eva and Patrick!

BEAUTIFUL HOLIDAYS IN AN IDYLLIC HAMLET!

  • 5 of 5
The appartment ist new renovated and lovingly furnished with a sense for nice details. You find everything there that you need - even towels and bedclothes.
The environment of the house is perfect. The pictorial hamlet, the neigbours, the owners, the nature.
You have many possibilities for freetime activities and excursions.
The appartment lies at a perfect initial point for trips all over the provence. By bike you can reach Rousillion, St Saturnin les Apt or even Gordes, Rustrel or Apt. By car you can reach all "important" touristic attractions within 1-2 hours (Gorges du Verdon, the sea, Avignon, Orange, even the Gorges de'lArdèche, ...). But we would advise you to take your bike and hiking-shoes with you! You can go hiking and (mountain-) biking right in front of the house.
Holidays in "Les Redons" are a gorgeous experience and we are still stoked from the hospitality and friendlyness of Eva et Patrick!!!

MAGICAL SPOT, DON'T GO PAST THIS ONE!

Magical spot, don't go past this one!
  • 5 of 5
This was indeed the highlight of our 5 weeks in France and Italy...what a wonderful spot!...the scenary is absolutely breathtaking. Our little apartment was just perfect for 2 people...beautifully detailed and very comfortable. The hospitality was second to none, thanks to Eva and Phillipe. Our little apartment was in a little hamlet, about 5 km to the nearest town, St Saturnin which is just beautiful, and has great restaurants. The apartment was well equipped with cooking and laundry appliances if you wished to just purchase food from the local markets. We truly loved our stay here and would thoroughly recommend this to anyone.

Owner's Response: Thanks Barbara!
Just a small correction... The hamlet, Les Redons, is situated 2,5 kilometers from the village of St.Saturnin-lès-Apt, so if you like walking it's within walking distance.

The tranquil hamlet Les Redons (pop: 23) is situated 2,5 kilometers east of the perched medieval village St. Saturnin-lès-Apt, in the Luberon National Park. The famous villages Gordes, Roussillon, Bonnieux and Menerbes are all within easy reach, a five to ten minute drive away. Avignon, Aix-en-Provence or Marseille can be reached in about one hour. You can be in Barcelona or Italy in 4-5 hours...

The apartment with it's small terrace has been created on the second floor of an old stable, in the heart of the hamlet. The hamlet is nestling in the midst of the vineyards, olive groves and lavender fields. It's a perfect place to wind down and take long walks... We are a couple of minutes drive away from the very beautiful and un-spoilt village St. Saturnin-lès-Apt (pop:2500), with it's shops, cafés, restaurants, pharmacy,'La Poste' and bakeries. No need to go any further, everything is there. There is a Tuesday market in the village and lots of festivities and fairs during the warm season and we even have our own 'piscine municipale'(pool) which is open during the school holidays.
