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.

A beautiful apartment with large french windows opening on the terrace, the garden and the swimming pool. Fully renovated in 2008, the cozy apartment is perfect for a couple. This place is all about space, and light. The wide french windows in the kitchen and bedroom flood the rooms with the Provence sunshine.
The equally spacious kitchen can accommodate an extra sofa bed if the need arises. This lovely apartment is perfect for a couple who appreciates brightly lit and spacious rooms.
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.
A lovely spacious apartment (we had the upstairs apartment) with a friendly owner. The large pool is as shown on the photograph. The property was clean and well maintained.
It is very convenient for the centre of the village with a range of bars and restaurants, located on a quiet side street. There is plenty to see within easy driving distance including Avignon, Mont Ventoux and several stunning Roman structures.
The description of the apartment was extremely accurate regarding location, layout and facilities. This spacious apartment forms part of a beautifully converted former barn located in a charming French village (with a train station & good bus service) about 20 minutes from the centre of Avignon by car. The apartment is spacious, with a very large and comfortable bedroom, a large bathroom with a powerful shower & plenty of hot water and a spacious living area/kitchen. Unlike many holiday apartments, the kitchen is extremely well equipped with pots, pans and utensils for those people who like a quiet meal in. The apartment is spotless.
The outside area consists of a beautiful seating area with umbrella for the hot Provence sun and a fabulous swimming pool for cooling off. The grounds are beautifully kept and extremely peaceful.
The village itself has everything you need - a couple of bakeries for your morning baguette, a small supermarket, a butchers, banks, and a couple of pharmacies. There are a couple of quiet bars and restaurants which are of a good standard. Large supermarkets are situated a few kilometres away.
The area itself is well placed for exploring everything that beautiful Provence has to offer. We drove every day for 10 days and barely scratched the surface.
The owner, Alice, gives an excellent service. She is very knowledgeable about the area and is always on hand to answer any questions or give recommendations. Although she does live on site, it is separate from the holiday lets and so still maintains that sense of privacy.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to friends and in fact, I am about to start organizing my return trip in 2016!
The listing was an accurate description of what was there. Our apartment had a small but functional kitchen / living area and very spacious bedroom. The semi-private outdoor area was a big plus. Perfect proportions for a couple.
The pool area was spotless and great to hang out in, with all the necessary loungers etc. The village is very cute, two bakeries, a butcher and a couple of little shops mean you can make your own French feast, or try one of a handful of walk-able restaurants. Avignon is ~ 20 minutes away and very accessible by car.
Alice is a lovely host, it was a pleasure to meet her
We stayed in no 1 for 2 weeks and could have no complaints.
The flat is spacious , bright and provided adequate amenity to our likng.
The flat is well maintained and spotless
The large pool is terrific
The real star is however Alice
Friendly and helpful without being in the slightest intrusive
We hope to return and would recommend 111 to everyone
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.

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.
The area around Le 111 and St Saturnin les Avignon is a favorite one for cyclists. If this is your passion, do check out this blog
