Villa St SaturninBack to Provence
The Villa St-Saturnin Provence luxury rental is an elegant and spacious six-bedroom vacation home situated in the heart of the Luberon National Park, only forty-five minutes from Avignon and one hour from historic Aix-en-Provence. Once an important 13th century Templar site, this historic property is set in an enclosed courtyard where a traditional basin and old fountain form an unusual and exquisite swimming pool. Mature fruit trees, rows of lavender and rosemary, and other typical Provencal plants and flowers populate the interior and exterior gardens, a dream-like backdrop for your luxurious Provençal holiday
Decorated by its architect/designer owners, this convent was converted into an elegant home offering the perfect combination of modern comfort and historic architectural details. The furniture is a delightful collection of French and English antiques, all of which have been chosen with great care and create an environment enjoying every moment of your French experience. The living areas are spread over three floors: on the ground floor you will find a classic reception parlor, a formal dining room, a large and professionally equipped French country kitchen, and a casual and comfortable lounging room with a large sofa and a flat screen television. The six bedrooms occupy the top two floors, including a studio with private kitchen available for additional visitors. Each bedroom and bathroom is decorated in its own unique style, with charming canopies, luxurious sleigh beds, claw foot bathtubs and sinks set in wrought iron powder tables.
The outdoor spaces surrounding the villa offer endless charm. Enjoy dinner under the stars at the twelve seat dining area or lounge around the pool and admire the scenery, which includes two magnificent Cedars of Lebanon, said to be the oldest and tallest in all of Provence. This property is truly unique and will offer you an unforgettable stay.
St-Saturnin-les- Apt and Apt
Provence is famous for its wines, antique shopping, hiking, biking and dining, all of which are within reach of the St-Saturnin villa.

With two excellent bakers, good general store, butcher, pharmacy and several wonderful restaurants and bars, you will find everything you need here.
Another easy destination is the nearby village of Apt, only a seven minute drive from your holiday villa.
