Make A Holiday Rental Apartment in Saumane-de-Vaucluse, France, Your Home Away From Home

As the name suggests, Saumane-de-Vaucluse is a small French village, to be found within the Vaucluse department, to the far south-east of the country, within the Provence Cote d’Azur region. With a population of less than 1,000 inhabitants, this tiny village offers a limited choice of self catering holiday rental accommodation. Visitors looking to spend their holidays in the Saumane-de-Vaucluse area will however find that the nearby larger towns of Avignon and Orange boast a much broader choice of holiday cottages, apartments and townhouses.

Things to Do on Holiday in Saumane-de-Vaucluse, France

Many visitors looking to spend their holidays in Saumane-de-Vaucluse choose the village as a base for exploring the many delights of this especially scenic region of France. They will find that the village’s quiet, tranquil atmosphere is the ideal retreat after a busy day exploring the historic attractions to be found in the nearby bustling towns of Avignon and Orange. Visitors who are more interested in the region’s natural beauty may alternatively put on a good pair of walking boots to explore the nearby Luberon National Park, or, slightly further afield to the south, the famous marshlands of the Camargue National Park.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Saumane-de-Vaucluse, France

In complete contrast, those visitors who are looking to spend time topping up their tan in the warm Mediterranean sun may wish to head for the popular beach resorts of the French Riviera, just a short drive to the south of Saumane-de-Vaucluse.

The owners - Veronique and Philippe are charming attentive but not intrusive hosts. We were privileged to be told their “Grand Design” story (from ruin to a dream home). I found them inspirational and great conversationalists. Pre-arrival communication was very effective. On all occasions I got prompt helpful respond and excellent advice on our stay. Accommodation is clean, comfortable and well maintained. The patio on one side and terrace overlooking the pool on another were excellent places to enjoy a glass (or two or three …) of wine. The pool area provides an idyllic place to sit and read or to have a dip in the cooling waters while gazing up at the mountains. The location of the gite is a dream - quiet, great views and a fabulous infinity pool. You can walk, run or cycle for miles straight from the property (traffic free!). A lovely village of Fontaine de Vaucluse is 10 min walk down a steep hill. The village’s Sorgue river has plenty to offer, whether you prefer a slow-paced stroll, or you're more inclined towards action and adventure. There are plenty of enjoyable scenic restaurants and cultural landmarks along the river that deserve to be on your 'to-do' list: a mysterious spring, remains of the fourteenth century castle, the Petrarch Museum Library, the “Vallis Clausa” Paper Mill etc. In their own simple ways they all have stories to tell. You can take a canoe/kayak down the Sorgue river or go for a hike/walk (free hiking trail maps are available at the Fontaine de Vaucluse Tourist Office). A charming town of L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue known as the capital of antiques, with many shops and galleries, and a large Provencal market every Sunday, is 15 min drive away. We loved fascinating "perched" hill-top villages (Gordes, Bonnieux, Menerbes etc), spectacular vineyards and orchards of Luberon (all within 30-45 min drive). We visited and loved the Abbaye Notre Dame de Sénanque, Pont du Gard, Salon-de-Provence, Avignon (all famous sites + the light show at the Palais des Papes), Marseille and my most favourite Aix-en-Provence. Merci beaucoup, Véronique and Philippe, for sharing your dream place, yummy olive oil, fig jam and red wine (of course!) with us. We absolutely loved this place. We will definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone.

Whilst not in the town centre, it is a simple five minute drive to Isle Sur La Sorgue with it's great choice of restaurants and other amenities (sunday market is well worth a visit !). Easy access to Avignon by train and we were lucky enough to have direct flights to Avignon so simple airport transfers as well. Great base for touring the beautiful Vaucluse countryside. The owners were easy to deal with and local management was efficient yet unobtrusive. We stayed for 2 weeks with a mix of family and friends (aged 17 to 70) and everyone was very happy. Thoroughly recommended !

The house is beautiful with lovely décor, it certainly felt like home, shame we had to give it back!, the photos do not do justice to the house or location. Being a large house there was plenty of space both in and outside, so that , even though there were 10 of us peace could always be found. Apart from the necessities there were many extras which further enhanced our stay, from all the maps and books left for our use to the advice folder in which Cathy had detailed all that we should see and do as well as information on shops and restaurants. Everything else is as described on the website and I have no hesitation in giving this place 10/10. Be aware though that the access road is narrow although fine for normal cars.
