The Region

The geographical location is really the heart of the Provence.In the center of the Lubéron Valley and at walking distance of the centre of APT, the property is situated 50 km East from AVIGNON, and about 60 km North from AIX-EN –PROVENCE.The situation is ideal to visit a number of picturesque and worldfamous villages such as Gordes, Roussillon, Bonnieux, Lacoste, Ménerbes, Isle-sur-la -Sorgue … and to enjoy the unique scenery of the valley of the Lubéron.
It is really worth the journey to visit the abbey of Sénanque, the Village of Bories, the castle of the Marquis de Sade, the okermines of Roussillon, the Fountain of Vaucluse…not to forget the typical Provencal Market in APT every Saturday-morning.
On top of that, the region offers the possibility for outdoor activities such as, mountain bike, cycling, rock-climbing (BUOUX), parapente, watersurf(APT), tennis, kayak (Isle-sur-la-Sorgue).
The region is well-known for the Parc Régional du Lubéron, and a must for people who like to walk or hike and enjoy pure nature (Bois des cèdres and numerous walking-routes).
The region is also a heaven for connoisseurs and people who have a delicate palate and enjoy Provencal cuisine and who will appreciate the great number of typical restaurants all over the region.

APT is easy to reach by car, train ( TGVAVIGNON ) and airplane ( Marseille or even Nice ).

    « En France, faites commes les français ! » – alors j’essaie d’écrire en français.

    La première semaine nous quatres sont allées chaque matin visiter un des beaux villages abondants dans le Luberon, et nous passons les après-midis ici sur la belle terrasse et dans la belle piscine. La seconde semaine nous deux restons le plus souvent ici et les environs nous trouvent /découvrent.

    Nous avons vu les corbeaux qui chassent les faucons qui essaient saisir leur bébés ; un martinet à ventre blanc ; un chavue-souris (qui a fait petite visite dans la maison) ; deux lièvres qui font le combat comme match de boxe et beaucoup d’ hirondelles partant, surtout sur la piscine ou elles essaient de boire. Et toujours l’air doux et chaud, la brise légère et les sons de la terre ancienne.

    Thank you for renovating with such care; thought and attention such a beautiful setting for our vacation !
