The LUBERON and Alpes de Haute Provence: The Luberon region of Provence lies between the Alps to the north and the plains of Vaucluse to the south. Brought to life for many in the books of Peter Mayle, the 'Petit Luberon' , to the west is separated from the 'Grand Luberon' to the east by the beautiful Combe de Loumarin, between Bonnieux and Loumarin. The village of Saint Saturnin d'Apt is very close to the picturesque Luberon 'coup de coeur' villages of Menerbes and Lacoste, the spectacular village of Gordes and the 'ochre' village of Roussillon. The attractions of the Alpes de Haute Provence department to the north including Banon, Manosque, Forcalquier, the Gorges de Verdon and the 'sub-alpes' offer a more rugged contrast to the Luberon. Whether your perfect holiday is relaxing by the pool, dining out in amazing restaurants, exploring the excellent wines of the Luberon or Cotes du Rhone regions, walking, hiking, or a host of other activities, villa La Musardiere and Saint Saturnin les Apt will not disappoint.
WIDER PROVENCE: For the more restless holidaymaker, the cities of AVIGNON (Palais des Papes, Pont St, Benezet, great restuarants), and AIX EN PROVENCE (historical city of art and culture) and ORANGE (Roman amphitheatre) are all charming historical gems well worthy of discovery, as are other towns including VAISON LA ROMAINE (Dentelles of Montmirail), SAULT (lavender) and St. REMY de PROVENCE (the Alpilles). More strenuous trips can be planned to visit MARSEILLES, the famous and ever popular Mediterranean coast including ST. TROPEZ , CANNES, ANTIBES and NICE.
