We visited the Apt Saturday market, the ochre quarries, some of the hillside villages and walked in the hills. The parking just outside the door was very handy, not far to carry the loads of stuff I always seem to travel with. The furniture and fittings were all new, the only things we missed were a couple of small kitchen knives to deal with the produce I bought at the market.Otherwise everything possible was there. We would certainly recommend the apartment as a base to explore the Luberon area.

A plus is that it's just a 15 minute downhill walk to the shops and restaurants in the charming town of Apt (ideally get someone to bring you back up the hill!). The layout of the house is very convenient with 2 ground floor bedrooms (both with en-suite bathrooms but oddly no loo in one). The 2 large decks are ideal for eating outdoors with one shaded by a beautiful oak and the barbecue close by. An ideal place to relax with the convenience of Apt within walking distance (and a massive E Leclerc a few minutes' drive).
