Looking for Rental Accommodation Near Apt

Make Apt Home Base

Apt is one of the larger centres in the Luberon and a great place from which to explore the hilltop towns, lavender fields, and vineyards of Provence. The weekly Saturday morning market in Apt is popular all year, it’s one of the biggest ones with stalls running throughout the streets. In the height of summer expect this market to be crowded, but don’t let that dissuade you from visiting.  The market stalls here run the gambit from linens and typical Provencal crafts to goat cheese to roast chicken and Morrocan specialties.

Julie and her husband Andy started visiting the Vaucluse area 25 years ago & over the years have increased the amount of time they spend there with their growing family. She has a deep affection for the area, finding it is a great place to visit, where the whole family can relax and enjoy time together.

She longs for the day when she can ‘up-sticks’ from her home on Dartmoor & relocate to the Luberon and spend her days cycling, walking, visiting markets & brocante fairs and of course enjoying the local food and drink.

Her blog VaucluseDreamer gives her a space to highlight some of her favourite things about the area from places to visit to particular activities that she and her family all enjoy.

She hopes one day it will be a place where she can share the process of renovating a house in France, but at the moment that will have to wait.
