Saint-Saturnin-lès-Apt Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Studio with terrace, sleeps 2-3, air-conditioning and wifi

A restored 45m2 studio (an old hayloft) with terrace, situated on the second floor of an ancient stable. There is a mezzanine with a double bed and downstairs a comfortable sofa bed that can accommodate one more person. The kitchen area is equipped with a four burner stove, oven, fridge, dining table and chairs and there are plenty of china and cooking utensils. The lounge area has a sofa, armchairs and a radio/CD player. There is a shower room with a toilet and sink. The small terrace is equipped with a table, chairs and an electric BBQ. Free WiFi. The glass terrace doors, the three skylights and the five meter high ceiling give the place a light and spacious feel. A mix of ancient stones, iron and wood...Air conditioning.

I also have two other, similar, properties advertised on this site, property n°15378 and property n°1437837 in Goult.

About Les Redons: Here in the hamlet "Les Redons" we are 35 year-round residents. That number swells to a stunning, maybe, 50 persons in the summer time, including the holidaymakers. 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, Saint 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 is 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 that your heart desires: fruit and veggies, olives and olive oil, cheese, wine, cured hams and sausages, clothes, jewelery, pottery, 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 Saint 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!

About Eva Parmelee

Hello, I'm Eva!

I'm a Swedish woman who ended up in the Luberon, Provence, France, nearly thirty years ago now. Time flies! I spent eleven years in the East Village, NYC in the seventies and eighties when it was nice an rough.

I'm the mother of two grown boys and I've been working with a bit of everything from dance and theater and restaurant management in the Big Apple, to selling and distributing olive oil in Provence.

Vacation rentals is my main activity (since 2004).

I have two more properties advertised on this site, "La Pitchounette" (property n° 1437837) in Goult and "La Joliette" (property n° 15378), also in Goult.

I hope to see you soon in the Luberon!

Lovely hideaway

  • 4 of 5

Perfect studio to come home to after a day in the countryside or the famous Luberon towns. Quiet, clean and modern finishes in a converted barn, it was perfect for the two of us. Eva is a wonderful host who is always helpful. We have stayed in another of her apartments and would do so again.

wonderful apartment in the beautiful luberon count

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 wonderful date at Last Remise in the sleepy hamlet of le Redons just a few short minutes away from St saturnin les apt. The location is perfect for exploring the lumbering valley and all of the delights it has to offer. The beautiful villages or gordes and roussillon are approximately 20 minutes away on a picturesque drive through the provencal countryside. In fact the whole area is filled with beauty at every turn.

The apartment itself complimented the area perfectly with its cleverly thought out layout and artistic design. Everything about our stay was perfect and equally as lovely was our host Eva who made it a most pleasurable stay even greeting us with a delicious bottle of rose from a local vineyard. It was lovely chatting with her and getting to know the area through her recommendations. Perfect host. Perfect house. Perfect area. We would recommend it without hesitation.

Gemütliche Ferien

  • 5 of 5

Man muss schon sagen, es hat uns beeindruckt, mit wie viel Geschmack und Überlegung, was eine sinnvolle Platznutzung betrifft, Eva dieses Appartements ausgebaut und eingerichtet hat. Es war alles vorhanden, sauber und im tadellosen Zustand. Wir wurden herzlich begrüßt und mit vielen Tipps für die Umgebung versorgt. In einem Mischmasch aus Englisch, Französisch, Deutsch haben wir viel über Land und Leute erfahren. Der Luberon im Frühjahr ist wunderschön und die Wohnlage des Appartements in dem kleinen Hameau ist urig. Wenn wir wieder nur zu zweit unterwegs sind, werden wir auf jeden Fall wiederkommen. Andrea und Bernhard

A very pleasant stay in a cozy studio

  • 4 of 5

The studio is bright, clean, and exceptionally well maintained. The cooking utensils provided are in good condition, including the electric bbq in the terrace, which we have used to prepare our meals. The size is perfect for a couple.

I liked the fact that the studio is located in a quiet hamlet, yet, within a short drive to the more touristy villages.

I do want to make a note that the studio has 2 set of steep staircases, one to access the first level living area and the second to access the bedroom in the attic. This could present a problem to anyone with mobility issues.

Finally, I like to thank the hospitality extended by Eva and Patrick. Eva is always prompt in responding to my queries and very accomodating. They are a pair of gracious hosts who made their guests feel very welcomed.

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.

The tranquil hamlet Les Redons (population 35) is situated 2,5 kilometers east of the perched medieval village St. Saturnin-lès-Apt, in the Luberon. 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 (population about 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 morning market in the village and there are lots of festivities and fairs during the warm season. We even have our own "piscine municipale" (pool) which is open during the school holidays in July and August.
