Les Fuseaux is a characterful Provence property, built of local stone and set in beautiful grounds in the heart of the Luberon National Park. With an eclectic mix of styles, it has a relaxed, bohemian feel, ideal for lazy summer days. The pool's unusual green colour has been carefully chosen to reflect the colours of the surrounding countryside.
A traditional Provencal country kitchen, classic antique pieces and Moroccan wall finishes, using chalk tinted with local Rousillon ocres, have been blended with flair and an eye for detail. Saignon is one of the many beautiful, unspoilt villages of the Luberon and has the all-important bakers, grocers and restaurant. Apt is a bustling town. On Saturdays it hosts one of the largest and most colourful markets in the region.
For a real taste of the Luberon, tour the surrounding villages of Bonnieux, Lacoste, Menerbes, Gordes and Roussillon. The beautiful university town of Aix-en-Provence is only 38 miles away. The Papal city of Avignon is just 50 minutes, a UNESCO World Heritage site with a magnificent gothic palace.

Wow - is this a colourful house! In a very Provencal style, of course. I love the green pool and the atmosphere of this villa. Lovely surroundings. You are very well placed to explore the Luberon region here. A short ten-minute drive brings you into the pretty town of Apt which holds a weekly market on Saturdays - why not try the Bistrot de France for lunch? The lovely hilltop village of Saignon is between 5 and 10 minutes from the villa. It is well worth making the extra effort and climbing the the rock of Saignon to enjoy a fantastic panoramic view of the landscape. After your sightseeing, one local restaurant you might like to try is Le Baladin in Place Eglise.
