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.

This was my third trip to Le 111, each June with different friends and relatives, so clearly I love this place! Each summer, I notice improvements made to the already lovely property: one year, it was thermopane windows; the next year, it was a washing machine in each apartment (we take over all three apartments here for a week to 10 days). The pool is a wonderful feature of the property after a day of touring out and about, and the apartments are well-equipped with the basics for cooking and very comfortable beds. We often have dinner together on the patio outside of this apartment and its next-door neighbor, the smaller one. The town itself is delightful, not very touristy, and so our presence is noted, and seemingly appreciated. Even my friends who don't speak a word of French are welcomed at the local bakery and mini-mart. The owner/manager is a delightful woman who is quick to deal with any small problems and is an excellent resource for recommendations of wineries, restaurants, and so forth during our day trips. I would never consider staying anywhere else while in Provence!
We stayed here for what was our first family holiday abroad with our 17 month old daughter and the accommodation or the hospitality could not have been better. Alice was there when we arrived and was around just the right amount to ensure that all our needs were catered for. The apartment was spacious with all the facilities we required and above all we felt very secure. The pool area is wonderful and the apartment is in a fantastic location for exploring the areas around Avignon with so much to see within an hours drive. All in all we had a very memorable family break.
This is a great base to explore the area and historic towns around Avignon. A lovely, well maintained property which offered everything we could need. A real bonus was the good sized covered swimming pool which was lovely to return to at the end of a long day's sight seeing. Alice, the owner, lives next door and is on hand to offer friendly advice. Although wary at first about hiring a property in a town my fears were quickly dispelled by the convenience of being able to walk to great restaurants and the friendly welcome from all the locals we spoke to. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a convenient base in this area of Provence.
We have just returned from 2 wonderful weeks at le 111 with our 2 children. The apartments are in a perfect location, central to many places of interest. We really enjoyed staying in the village - the apartments are in a quiet and peaceful street but only a 2 minute walk away from the village centre where the shops, bars and restaurants provide all you need without having to get in the car. Without exception the local people are friendly and happy to welcome you - we had many enjoyable evenings improving our French and left feeling like we had made friends. The apartments and pool area are all clean and very well maintained and Alice who owns the property is extremely kind and helpful and goes out of her way to ensure you have a good stay but without intruding. We have every intention of returning next year!
Just a wonderful Provence home to come back to after sightseeing and bargain hunting in the brocantes. Hostess looked after us beautifully and gave us loads
of ideas and tips on where to go. The pool is very well looked after and the flat
itself has everything you can possibly need. Modern and spacious. Advance information before arriving was clear and useful. Shops and bars are within 5 minutes walk to the village centre. We hope to go back again next year. Thank you Alice!
I traveled by myself to this region and stayed in this apartment for a month. It was incredible. I am recommending this apartment to all of my friends and hope to go back again. My sisters came to visit for a couple weeks and comfortably stayed in the second bedroom as well. Alice, who runs the apartment, is a wonderful woman who, as someone else so aptly described in their review, is extraordinarily helpful if you need her (she gave me invaluable advice on some occasions) but not at all intrusive. The apartment itself looks as lovely, if not better, than the pictures. It's a gorgeous, spacious place, with beautiful foliage and a terrace that I already miss, and situated in a quaint village. From the apartment, it's just a short walk to the center of the village where there is a grocery store, incredible bakeries for fresh pastries and baguettes every day, a butcher, restaurants, cafes, etc. With the mountains in the background and the peacefulness of the village which I loved, it was the perfect base for exploring the region. If you have a car, you'll be able to very easily explore the entire geographical area. I did not have a car, and yet I was also still able to use the bus and train system, albeit less efficiently of course, but impressive considering the region and the fact that almost everyone who visits the area rents a car. Although frankly, with how lovely the village was and how comfortable the apartment was, I didn't even explore other cities for half the time I was there, nor did I feel the need to. I loved just relaxing in the apartment and on the gorgeous terrace with some delicious food and wine from the village. The apartment is more than well-equipped and the wifi was perfect. Being a female traveling alone, I also felt very safe in this area. Everyone in the village was so kind. I can't thank Alice and the village enough for an unforgettable month. I'm sure I'm forgetting to highlight some aspect of this amazing apartment and village, but suffice it to say, you should absolutely stay here! I will definitely be returning!
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
