Very charming house, stunningly beautiful region, authentic Provence
"This was the third time I stayed in this lovely house: I fell in love with it and the village of Saignon several years ago, because it still feels and looks like an authentic French Provence village, not a luxury touristic estate.
The good surprise this year was the new top floor terrace, second kitchen and extra bedroom & very modern second bathroom at the top of the house, which means in summer you breakfast on the terrace looking out over the roman-tiled roofs of the entire village. This is in addition to: a downstairs hallway & utility room, a kitchen and large drawing room , all on the first floor; then a master bedroom and a large guest bedroom plus a bathroom and a small sewing room.
The house wa stone-built to last centuries ago, so even at midday in August, the rooms inside are cool and restful. The décor is shabby elegant in the way decorators strive for; but here it is authentic. There's a combination of old family furniture, comfortable sofas you sink in, antique tiled floors, garden chairs in the kitchen, books that have been read and re-read in the bookcases; but good firm beds. It's got oodles of charm and enough modern conveniences to spend a great summer en famille.
You need a car because the local buses are slow and come every hour or so only; the one going from Apt (the market town a couple of miles down the hill from Saignon), all the way to the TGV station at Avignon takes nearly two hours. The area is stunningly beautiful; you can walk across picture-book lavender fields; visit the region's chateaux and monasteries; attend the Avignon theatre festival in season (summer) as well as many summer classical music festivals; there's a municipal swimming pool for your teenagers at Apt. Further out is Aix en Provence with the greatest French opera festival in summer. Avignon had monuments and museums from the time it was the Pope's residence; it also has goos restaurants; and of course the entire countryside was where Cézanne, Picasso, Renoir, and many more painted.
In short, I wish I wre back there now!...."

"My wife and I spent three weeks at Vignes Folles. While the update to the baths & kitchen were a number of years ago now, all work very well, and the house has tons of charm - not to mention the best location in the Luberon. The house was very clean (not something you always get), and feels like an authentic French mas - which it is! The kitchen works well for a demanding chef, and the shower in the master is very good on pressure and loads of hot water. The pool area and grounds are fantastic. Peaceful and quiet location. Good wifi and Internet phone. We'll be back!!!!"

Très bon accueil de la propriétaire et localisation de la maison parfaite pour découvrir le Lubéron.
Un grand merci."
