Holiday Rental House
La Roc' Bruyere is an independent two-storey stone house built in the Provencal style and set in a 1900 sq meter garden planted with olive, cherry, apricot trees, lavender and luxuriant pink laurel bushes. The 9x4 m pool has a padded lounge-in-the-water area at the entrance, sunbeds at the poolside, and a pool house with a lounging area, and full shower room with sink and toilet. It is also protected from the mistral winds by a wall. The terrace (also looking onto the pool) is shaded with foliage and has outdoor tables and a barbecue, making it ideal for meals out by the pool. The well-kept garden has plenty of shady spots under the trees. All of this, a mere few hundred yards from the lovely, unspoiled (because, for some lucky, unfathomable reason, it remains relatively unknown) medieval ...La Roc' Bruyere is an independent two-storey stone house built in the Provencal style and set in a 1900 sq meter garden planted with olive, cherry, apricot trees, lavender and luxuriant pink laurel bushes.

The well-kept garden has plenty of shady spots under the trees. All of this, a mere few hundred yards from the lovely, unspoiled (because, for some lucky, unfathomable reason, it remains relatively unknown) medieval village of St Saturnin-les-Apt. La Roc' Bruyère is an independent property, and unlike some rentals that started springing out in the area recently, is not part of a large development and therefore completely private, and very quiet. Our neighbors are locals, and our houses are not on top of each other. You'll barely ever hear or see them. Staying at our house, you will be able to enjoy privacy, a lot of peace and quiet, and yet, you'll be a short stroll away from the heart of our village, which boasts some nice restaurants, a small supermarket, butcher, and two boulangeries/pâtisseries. Saint Sat (as we call it) is located in the heart of the Luberon and a bit of driving (or cycling) will get you to the most beautiful villages in the area: Roussillon, Gordes, Apt, Lacoste, Bonnieux, Isle sur la Sorgue, Saignon, and many more... Finally, La Roc' Bruyere is the house we bought for our expatriate family to keep some roots in France (and for our children to experience their French heritage), and also, eventually, to spend our retirement years. We take great pride in making it as pretty, warm and welcoming as we can.More

About the neighbourhood
The authentic village of Saint Saturnin les Apt, in the heart of the Parc Naturel Regional du Luberon, is nestled along the base of a long, low cliff, with two 17th century windmills and the ruins of a medieval château keeping watch. Walking through the central streets, you'll discover beautiful old houses adorned with sculptured porches and intricately decorated doors and window frames. Excellent pastries and breads are available at the local patisserie, and other provisions can be picked up at the grocery stores. There are several restaurants, cafes, and bars in the village. A visit to the open market is essential, where local produce, cheeses, meats, and flowers are available. There is a lovely lake, nearby, and wonderful walks or cycling promenades in the surrounding hills. The whole a...
