Property description

This property is unique for a village house as it has it's own alfresco dining terrace and garden with views of the Luberon. Sleeping arrangements are, 1 double & 1 single bedroom & a double sofa bed located in a separate reading room, comfortably accommodating 4-5 adults,however, there is also an additional sofa bed in the lounge for extra guests and the house can sleep up to 7 max with two (2) bathrooms, separate mezzanine / TV area from the open plan dining / lounge.

Saignon is a charming, unspoilt medieval village in the Lubéron Valley, a region in Provence, France, of outstanding natural beauty, and sits amongst acres of Lavender fields and fruit groves. It is also much famed for its excellent gastronomy, with several restaurants operating in the centre of the village generally in summer time. Situated on the edge of the village, Solièra has unmatched views down the Grand Lubéron Valley, while the charm of village life is less than a minutes stroll away.

Although there are a number of shops in Saignon including an excellent bakery which also sells some provisions, post office, three gift and handicraft shops, two cafés and eight restaurants, the lively market town of Apt with all amenities is just 4 kilometres down the valley which is easily accessible by Car, bus or foot.

Saignon and Apt are centrally located in the Luberon and many ancient villages and tourist destinations are very close and easily accessible and Marseilles and the Mediterranean are only about an hours drive away.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I am a self confessed Francophile in love with everything French. I even started a business selling French homewares. We want to share our home with you and we hope you will love it as much as others do.

Why the Owner Chose Saignon:
On first inspection we LOVED IT !. We had rented and stayed at a lot of different properties around France, but Soliera,our little gem, beat them all. And our clients think so too.. read more.... From Kate: Dear Janelle Thank you so much for making the lovely Soliera available to us. We've had the most marvellous time. Of course two weeks was never going to be enough! We discovered new sites and revisited a few old favourites. Joanna's welcome was wonderful - she even walked us around the village, after 'showing us the ropes' in the house and she left us some yummy provisions to indulge in. I'm sending this email from Tourettes sur Loup, our abode for the next week. It's a small villa with a spectacular view, but I'm afraid it pales by comparison with Soliera as it lacks many of the creature comforts and the delightful decor. We were confirmed Francophiles before spending the last fortnight in the Luberon but now we are seriously considering returning for more than a year. Kate.S From Meg: Janelle I'm now back home. I thoroughly enjoyed your house and being in Saignon. The lavender was spectacular and weather kind. We had a couple of excellent dinners at Andrews La Petite Cave. Thank you for sharing Soliera. I'm sure I'd like to rent it again. Meg.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
In the heart of Provence and central to all the major tourist towns and attractions. It blends quaint Village living with all the modern services required to make for a perfect holiday. Janelle
