This property a couple of villas apart from Villa Bruyere.
We were quite happy with it. Nice location.
Spacious, security is over the top, nice pool, all appliances are modern, extremely clean, contact person is wonderful - she went out of her way for us.
Small hill top village of St Saturnin les Apt - good dining, local atmosphere.
Toured the gorges of Verdun, the wine region of Chateauneuf du Pape, the Lavender mills, the popes palace in Avignon, and ARLES where Van Gogh painted.
Nearby Events or Locales:
St. Saturnin was a walk up the hill - about a mile.
Tips or Restaurants:
Bring usual supplies - we simply stopped at a grocery store for paper products, laundry, dish soap etc.
I brought a GPS with European maps - an absolute must.
It made all the difference in the world.
I would recommend a map of the area to show specifically the property
( when we got close I simply called the contact, Beatrice.)
Check In Out:
With the contact info I was able to call and then the GPS told us how long it would take.
Great house, well equipped, all new and modern appliances and furnishings.
The proximity to the village of Saint Saturnin, a lovely village. Very friendly locals. Really fabulous meals in the village! Also the hike up the hill past the village to the castle ruins was beautiful. We will be going back.
The area is beautiful in June, good weather, and there are many historic villages nearby to enjoy.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Saint Saturnin les Apt--it's a pleasant 10-minute walk.
Tips or Restaurants:
Yes, we have rented with RentVillas before and there was fresh bread, wine, jam, and cheese awaiting us. You do need to bring everything to this house, even hand soap and dishwashing detergent. There is nothing in the house other than a little toilet paper, but you can walk to a shop in the village.
We used our GPS. There is a gate at the house entrance and the housekeeper met us there.
Check In Out:
Just the English to French barrier as the house manager does not speak any English; her friend spoke Spanish and our children do, too, so this helped. We have some French but not enough to get the workings of the house. We figured it out as everything was pretty new. Really was not any problem.
The property is located one kilometer from Saint-Saturnin-les-Apt, a medieval village on the base of a cliff that is marked by a windmill and the ruins of an ancient castle. Saint-Saturnin-les-Apt has restaurants, cafes, and food shops as well as a Sunday market. The main sights are the Eglise St-Etienne, Chapelle Castrale Saint-Saturnin, and several Bories, stone-huts that were once used (and still are!) by shepherds in the hills. A shop in town has maps of many hiking trails nearby. The property is centrally-located for day trips throughout Provence. Apt, less than 10 kilometers away, is a market town with a good selection of restaurants, cafes, and shops.
