Updated 10th May 2020 Owing to the Covid-19 virus we are no longer taking reservations for this year as we do not wish to expose our clients to risk nor ourselves.

Please stay safe .

Cleaning each property and trying to guarantee we have eradicated the virus and then operating a social distance policy poolside simply does not work. We are though taking bookings for 2021 and 2022. Please stay safe . LES CERISIERS - As a couple we found it hard to find quality accommodation with a nice pool near a village, where there may be other adults to chat with over a glass of wine, at the same time not paying for rooms we did not use. So we decided to design and build it ourselves! You can walk in less than 10 minutes to St Saturnin Les Apt, one of the few unspoilt hillside villages in the Luberon, Provence, just 7 kilometres from Apt and close to Bonnieux and Gordes. The historic towns of Avignon and Aix en Provence are under 60 minutes away by road. Adjoining our own home and set in a former olive grove and fruit orchard, our two, one bedroom gites, each sleeping two, enjoy wonderful views over the surrounding countryside and Luberon hills. We are on hand to welcome you and offer any information you require to enhance your holiday. The gites with their ancient Provencal roof tiles, traditional wooden windows and shutters and beamed vaulted ceilings offer all home comforts. Each gite has a comfortable living room with sofa, table and chairs and is open plan to the kitchen, which is fitted with electric oven, a gas hob, fridge, dishwasher and microwave. Naturally for breakfast we provide a coffee maker, kettle and toaster. If you really want to relax we can offer,for a small supplement, a traditional French breakfast served on your terrace with champagne. The bedrooms have built in wardrobe, double bed with luxurious en suite shower room with wc and wash hand basin. (All linen, towels including pool towels are provided). Each gite has a flat screen TV, receiving English channels, and there is an I-pod dock and COMPLIMENTARY WiFi. French doors open onto a private covered terrace equipped with furniture and a barbeque for outdoor dining, and access to the garden areas and swimming pool. For your added comfort, in high summer,the gites are cooled by an under floor refresher system which also provides heating in the winter. A washing machine is provided for the use of both gites, and each also has a covered parking space. Our home and gites are quietly tucked away, yet within a short walk of the village. Approached by a driveway lined with olive and cypress trees we have just over an acre of grounds with fruit trees, a boules court, plenty of seating areas to relax and a superb heated infinity swimming pool (10 x 5m) with spacious sun bathing area, pool house and a view of the chateau. An end of stay clean is included, a daily or mid stay clean can be arranged at an extra cost. Breakfast and/or evening meal can also be served by arrangement, for a supplementary charge. Our arrival supper has proved particularly popular! More

The village has a market on Tuesday where you can buy fresh local produce as well as Provencal gifts, wine and clothing.
