One of the most distinctive towns in the Luberon, south-east France, Saignon stands on a rocky spur, which you can see high above the town of Apt. This little town, once used as a look-out for danger, gave it prestige, and three castles sprung up as a result, and these are now ruins, but still evident. The town itself is a pleasure to walk around Ė winding narrow streets, fountains, shady squares, stone houses, a lovely bakery and restaurants can all be found within its confines. And just outside the village walls, youíll find the pretty 12th-century Romanesque church The view from behind the rock is quite astounding, but donít be afraid to climb to the top of it to gain fantastic panoramic views across the plains of Luberon and Provence. Saignon is still very unspoilt and relatively unknown, so make the most of it and explore the gorgeous walking and cycling trails through the countryside. And, be sure to try the local honey and goats cheese when you can Ė itís delicious.
