Your partially covered terrace and steps lead to the 10m x 5m infinity swimming pool, which has ample sunbathing area with sun loungers, parasols and pool house with lounge furniture and views towards the village and chateau. It is the perfect place for our guests to get together to exchange stories and tips over an early evening aperitif and watch the sun set behind the chateau.
We are also on hand to assist with restaurant reservations, which market is on where and the best place to park, organise cycle hire or help with hiking routes. You name it and we will try and help. As David is now a regular cyclist he can advise on a range of tried and tested routes and has been known to accompany many guests including several making their first attempt at climbing the might Mont Ventoux. Since we started in 2009 we have welcomed guests from all over the world and over 56% return each year, many of whom have now been coming back for as many as ten years.
We that regret we do not allow children under 18 to stay in the Chambre du Platane or gites, or allow more than two people to share.
The chambre du Platane is an easy 750m walk from the heart of the unspoilt village of St Saturnin Lès Apt. Full of Provençal character, it is dominated by a medieval ruined castle with its ramparts and towers (which can be seen from all our properties) and the 17th Century Windmill. Narrow streets, old stone houses with their original doors, water fountains and a central square, which is shaded by plane trees, all create a peaceful ambience.
Less than 10 minutes walk from our properties there are three bars, two hotels and five restaurants providing casual and more formal dining. A butchers, two boulangeries and a ‘Spar’ supermarket, gift shop, epicerie, chemist, post office, cash machine and newsagents. The village has a market on Tuesday, where you can buy fresh local produce as well as Provencal gifts, wine and clothing.
The area, has been noted for its Olive Oil and the local Moulin, which has a small gift shop, is just outside the village as you approach from Apt.

La vue panoramique exceptionnelle! La piscine à débordement que nous avions du mal à quitter pour visiter la région. Le beau jardin. La proximité du village (10 mn à pied sur un très beau chemin). L’accueil, la disponibilité et la gentillesse de Karen et David. Nous reviendrons!
The exceptional panoramic view! The infinity pool that we struggled to leave to visit the area. The beautiful garden. The proximity of the village (10 minutes walk on a beautiful path). The welcome, the availability and the kindness of Karen and David. We will come back!
Excellent view of the beautiful garden and mountains – beautiful room, they thought of everything: coffee / tea in room, even a torch for when you walk back in the evening!
This is our third visit, although this time we stayed at the Chambre du Platane which is a B&B room next to the 2 gites. I knew what to expect as the other 2 gites Les Oliviers and Les Cerisiers were perfect. We were spoilt really!
Delicious and copious breakfast of croissants, fresh bread, home-made jam, fruit and yogurt. We wanted to have a complete break from cooking so chose b&b this year. But there is a fridge in the room, so if you’ve had a big lunch, and you only need a little snack in the evening, this is perfect.
Beautiful views from the terrace, locally made olive oil shower gel, there is nothing missing. Just another few more weeks or holidays. I recommend you book early as they get booked up in advance. Karen and David and always helpful with tips for the area and discover new places to eat every year. We will be back I’m sure.
Everything is simple: home location, the room, breakfast…everything is perfect!
Amazing accommodation in a beautiful village; lovely breakfast in the room terrace, very professional owners.Luigi, Italy
