Property description

In a newly restored and subdivided 17th century grand home in the historic center of the town of Apt, we have a two bedroom, two bath, two story, sun filled, bright, south facing apartment designed to respect the architectural spirit of the ancient house in which it is located. Our private courtyard garden, which you overlook, is yours to use and enjoy.

The apartment was designed, renovated and decorated by the owners. The design is a blend of a respect for the historic structure and contemporary sensibility. The furnishings are antiques found in southern France, bed linens are the finest linens and cottons. The apartment has a wood burning fireplace, and each bath has a shower.

Spend time in the old town where everything; shops, markets, restaurants, museums, the cinema etc. is accessible on foot. The original large Saturday market in the town center is incredible. The spread and mixture of fresh, local, seasonal foods is an inspiration to every cook or beginner. The colors of Provence are evident everywhere with the stands of beautiful fresh flowers, in the clothing worn and offered for sale, as well as the items and variety in the art and crafts available from each vendor with every culture seeming to be represented and sold here.
The world suddenly becomes a smaller place where we all can come together to appreciate one another and our differences.

This is a also a perfect landscape for bicycling with easy to challenging trails, roadways and hills. The old railway bed has been made accessible for miles of incredible biking. The hills of the neighboring villages add to the challenge. The countryside is beautiful dotted with chateaus and early farms, open and lush with vineyards, olive and fruit tree orchards, fields of lavender and sunflowers.

Apt is an ancient historic town dating back to the Romans. In fact this entire area dates back to the Roman Empire and this history is noted with pride in each village, town and city so you, the traveler, are more aware of this ancient, important history.. You can spend days tracing the historic trails and visiting the ancient roman sites.. We love taking picnics and hiking or biking to these sites, spending most of our days out.
