Le Sautaire , where we will be staying, is a meticulously restored traditional Provencal farmhouse nestled at the foot of Grambois . A one acre, beautiful, lush, mature garden surrounds the home with impressive views of its own twenty acre vineyard in the peaceful valley below. Terraces wrapping the estate offer expansive views of Mt. St. Victoire and the Luberon.

Enjoy the afternoons basking in the sun by the pool or relaxing in a comfortable chair under the shade of the terrace. The house is within walking distance of Grambois, a 'village perche' with a boulangerie, quaint market and cafe-bar. It is situated in the Luberon National Park in the midst of an area of charming chateaux, medieval villages, Provencal markets and many cultural activities. Le Sautaire is close to Aix-en-Provence and Avignon, 45 minutes from Marseille airport, and 35 minutes from Aix TGV station.
