About the Property
3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, sleeps 6, with gorgeous roof terrace in Saignon
a dining table, and the kitchen is fully-equipped with an oven, dishwasher, hob and a fridge. Thick walls ensure that the house is cool in the summer, and the central heating is efficient in the winter. The staircase is original and fairly steep! This is very much a home, with the owners coming as often as possible with children from 20 to five years old.
Saignon is beautiful and unspoilt, and children can play around the fountain on the square in front of the house, and explore the village with its ruins and 12th century church, there is an excellent bakery next to the house, and a couple of good restaurants,. Approximately one hour's drive to Marseille (with its creeks and beaches). the Camargue (Arles), Aix en Provence, and Avignon.
The other Luberon hilltop villages (Gordes, Lacoste, and Menerbes) are 20 minutes away, and Apt, a bustling market town is five minutes away with a fabulous , large and CLEAN municipal pool,in our experience relatively empty even during the holidays, and two small children/toddlers pools, and lots of life guards ! and a picnic area and a famous Saturday morning market.
the house itself begins on the first floor, with a big reception room (dining and sitting areas) and the family kitchen, with a wrought iron balcony running round it . Upstairs to a large room with a double bed and its own basin, and a large twin room ( the beds can be pushed together to make a double) . These rooms share a fully equipped bathroom, with a bath/shower, loo and basin. Up again to a small twin room, a shower room and basin, and a separate loo. Out onto the terrace, a large dining table and chairs, some sun chairs, and an outside kitchen- oven, fridge and sink. The terrace is half covered, so there is no need to be in the sun all day ! Although there is no TV , there is wifi access throughout the house and mobile phone access !

bliss for children because the village is tiny, and the square and the fountain is in front of the house- there are always children running around. cars do not go through the village in the season. My children grew up running round the square, splashing themselves and everyone else, and exploring the village on foot . ...moreless

the Luberon is famous for its hill walking, and bicycling. There is fun kayaking on the River Sorgue, and a wonderful outdoor pool in Apt. The beaches of Marseille and the Camargue are a dytrip.The whole area is also steeped in history with many fascinating places and cities to visit; the historic city of Avignon with the Pope's Palace, the Old Port in Marseille, the ruins of St remy de Provence.. and all the little villages dotted round, all mediaeval and perced on hillsides each with its own story. The Summer Festivals all around embrace formal theatre, street theatre, opera, music of all sorts ..there are things going on for all ages. and lots of sun ! even in the winter, it gets extremely cold but with beautiful piercing light and sunshine ...
