St. Saturnin-Lès-Apt is one of the little hidden gems that make Provence
so special. The pace of life here is unhurried, as befits a village with
close to 1,000 years of history. And best of all, it's unspoiled - one of
the reasons we are so happy to call it home.
Spend a few hours strolling around - sample the delights at the
wonderful bakeries - sit at one of the three cafés and do some
people-watching - perhaps a game of pétanque - and definitely not to be
missed, a walk up to the castle ruins above the village for some of the
best views to be found anywhere in the Luberon.
We are lucky to have a number of excellent restaurants, a well-stocked
grocery store, a green grocer, a butcher - in short, all life's essentials.
And the market on Tuesday morning is well worth a visit - small and
quaint - a different experience compared to the huge and boisterous
markets in Apt or Isle-sur-la-Sorgue.
Outdoor enthusiasts will be spoiled by the many miles of hiking and
biking trails in the surrounding hills. Or just take a walk along the
back-country roads through vineyards and orchards and fields of
Come enjoy St. Saturnin-Lès-Apt - an authentic, peaceful and very
beautiful bit of Provence.
