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 ).
