We are also on hand to assist whether it be a restaurant reservation, which market is on where and the best place to park, cycle hire, routes for hiking or even source cooking ingredients (pigeons & courgette flowers amongst those already found). 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 mighty 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.
An end of stay clean is included, a daily or mid stay clean can be arranged at an extra cost. Champagne breakfast and/or evening meal on arrival can also be served by arrangement for a supplementary charge.
If you prefer to avoid travelling at weekends, why not book an extra couple of nights in the Bed & Breakfast room? Or if you have friends who would like to join you, they can reserve the Chambre du Platane, as the gites are equipped to cater for four people.

Our gites are an easy 750m walk from the heart of the unspoilt village of St Saturnin Lès Apt. Full of Provencal 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 newsagent. 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.

The gite is one of a pair and just 10 minutes walk from the lovely unspoilt village of St Saturnin, where there is all you need. Two boulangeries, a good butchers, and a variety of good places to eat – including one that is a particular favourite of ours.
The gite owners, David and Karen, live in the adjoining house, and are the perfect hosts. Always on hand to give advice on where to go, and ready to recommend or book a restaurant for their guests, but never intrusive. We particular enjoy the opportunity for an aperitif by the pool with them and our fellow guests before dinner. You can judge how fond we are of this place by the fact that we have now been there 5 times, and have already booked for 2019!
We chose to stay here for our honeymoon. There were another couple and a lady staying who had been multiple times before. This made for a lovely mix of both private relaxation and social company.
David and Karen have created a wonderful garden of Eden with beautifully maintained gardens with shrubs in full bloom. With the cicadas , honey bees and dragonflies and a view across the ecological salt pool and the incredible view across the Luberon countryside, this made for a truly unforgettable experience.
The gite is located in Saint Saturnin which was in our opinion the best of all the local villages. Less touristy with wonderful French character. David and Karen were ideal hosts. Incredibly helpful and friendly. We cannot recommend this place enough!
We have lost count of the times we have visited this wonderful gite but we think it is eight times! We will return as it is such an idyllic spot only a few minutes walk into St Saturnin les Apt with its shops and eating establishments.
The gite has everything you could need for your comfort including a heated pool and the area around is quiet countryside with excellent views suitable for walking or cycling. The nearest large town is Apt which is only about 15 minutes away by car.
The owners live adjacent to the gites and are extremely helpful and welcoming and knowledgeable about the local area. We shall be booking next year’s stay shortly!
Fantastic place to stay – beautiful stylish well-equipped apartment, stunning views, easy stroll or cycle into the attractive village for bread and croissant in the morning, amazing places to visit, ideal location for cycling and walking, and wonderfully friendly and helpful hosts. We can see why people come back year after year!
We first stayed here in summer 2011, for a week. We went back in 2012 for a week, we had enjoyed it so much. We tried booking it for two weeks this summer but they couldn’t take us: becoming too popular as a result of people rebooking for the next year before they leave and, possibly, because of rave (but honest) reviews like this one!
The gite is very comfortable. And clean! It is a very easy place to feel relaxed and at home. Eating outside on the shaded terrace, gaily surfing the net via the splendid wifi, lazing in the shade by the pool, swimming in the deliciously cool, but not cold, salt water pool, having someone other than ourselves to chat to for half an hour or so over aperitifs, sleeping like a log in the peace and quiet: these are all things we really enjoy.
David and Karen are very welcoming and friendly. If your gite needs something that’s not provided just ask and they’ll do their best to supply it- though quite what you might be having to ask for I’m not sure as they have the place very well equipped. It’s great also to have the facility for washing/drying/ironing clothes.
St. Saturnin is a lovely wee village in its own right and is also well situated for visiting any number of other villages in the Luberon. We wholeheartedly recommend this gite as a great place to stay.
We stayed in Les Cerisiers again this year. Situated in a beautiful private & peaceful location, with splendid views of the Luberon hills, it is only a 10 minute scenic walk to the lovely village of St Saturnin.
Both gites are spotlessly clean, comfortable, well equipped & having everything you need. Many charming villages & towns are only a short driving distance, where you can find some very good restaurants. The infinity pool with pool house is the perfect spot in the evenings for aperos & chat with the other gite guests & David & Karen, who are always amazing hosts. Our holiday here is always a delight. Look forward to seeing you next year D & K !!
