Hiking the Perreal

The Perreal hill is on the west side of Saint Saturnin Les Apt and the walk gives spectacular views in all directions.

From our house, we walk the 800 metres to the village and then continue straight across opposite the bar du Platane.

At the end of the road, turn right and traverse across towards the Perreal passing Domaine des Andeols. A short way along from here it’s a left turn and the climb begins. …Continue reading here for the original article.

Saint Saturnin Les Apt is in the Luberon. This perched village is much less touristy in peak season than its Luberon neighbours Bonnieux, Gordes, Lacoste and Menerbes.

It took just one holiday in the Luberon in 2003 for David and Karen Taylor to fall in love with Provence. This lead to owning a village house in Saint Saturnin les Apt - a holiday home. However, after just a few visits they took the radical step of leaving home and work in Surrey, England.

The plan was to take a year off to explore Provence and learn French. However, after just a few months a challenge of a different sort presented itself - property. It was a piece of land in a wonderful authentic Provencal village in the Luberon and they set about planning and building two houses and gites over a two year period.

Today David and Karen have a three bedroom villa with private pool, two gites and a chambre d'hôte room with a shared pool. Now (2015) they are approaching their 7th season with 50% repeat guests, for a season that starts at Easter and runs to mid-October.

Details on the different accommodation options can be found here.

When not carrying out work duties the couple continues to explore the endless beautiful Provencal villages and towns. Recording their visits in photographs and sampling great food & scenery.

Their blog began in 2006 as a way for friends and family to follow our adventures it is now a great resource for anyone interested in Provence.
