Stepping out of a narrow, winding street in the heart of Pernes you find yourself in a scene from the Arabian Nights-or might it be Petarch? An enclosed courtyard holds a spring fed pool, a wide terrace, greenery galore, a wooden pergola, romantic lighting: poetry that on a warm summer's night would melt the heart of the toughest pragmatist. From here into the 21st century: a cool haven of space with an airy feel, a minimilist decor, earth colours, natural fabrics, and plain good taste. Quirky touches too. You'll want to stay a while to experience both world's the ice-cube lamps against old stonework, the Art Deco style and the abstract art.

You'll want to stay a while to experience both world's the ice-cube lamps against old stonework, the Art Deco style and the abstract art. Comfortable bedrooms have quiet style, the excellent kitchen has an extraordinary quantity of of crockery, cutlery, platters and baskets, and the living area's 30's style leather sofas open arms to a superior music system: the owner is a professional trombonist. Just up from the market square: yet quieter than the countryside: no tractors, no roosters. Fine dining, festivals great and small, history, art and winegrowers are all around you. beautifully converted 18th Century stone barn situated in a typically Provencal village in the heart of the Vaucluse. La Saga is a very large converted barn situated in the ancient village of Pernes Les Fontaines. The house is entered through a gate from a typically old narrow street in the village. A stunning courtyard with a swimming pool is overlooked by the 3 storey house. The house has been designed for enjoyment and indulgence. The floors are traditional stone throughout and there is electric central heating as well as three wood-burning stoves. This is an ideal house for you to unwind from the fast pace of your professional lives or indeed for a more mature group of people to spend time enjoying the surroundings of the Vaucluse and Luberon countryside and relaxing around the pool. It is a perfect place from which to explore the surrounding ancient cities and indulge in the cultural events of Provence. Ideally situated within a few minutes walk from all the local amenities, yet once inside the courtyard it could not feel any more private. More

About the neighbourhood
Pernes-les-Fontaines is an ancient walled village whose origins go back to Roman times. It takes its name from the 37 fountains in the town. Pernes-les-Fontaines has a good range of shops and services, including excellent pâtisseries, boucheries, and fromageries, as well as a post office and a tabac. Every Saturday morning, there is an excellent open-air market selling local farm produce. Within the walls of the old village, there is a Michelin recommended restaurant, just a five-minute walk from La Saga. A favourite restaurant is La Camarette about 1km from La Saga. It's a must for anyone who loves good food in a beautiful setting. Every second year in July the Tour de France passes close to the village before the cyclists make the famous uphill climb to Mont Ventoux. Cycling is a great...
