“The benefits of a recently opened B&B near St Saturnin les Apts....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

It's always nice to come across a chambre d'hôtes that has recently opened for business, as the owners are fresh and ready to really cater to their clients' needs. And this is the case with the Domaine Saint Jean (opened at the end of June 2012).

The other advantage is that the rooms in this lovely refurbished farmhouse are recently renovated and have been decorated with a great deal of taste, yet without coming across as snobby chic. This is not surprising since Eric, the owner, is an antiques dealer at L'lsle sur la Sorgue, one of the major sites in France for finding loads of antiques. Here then is another advantage : Eric can give you advice on where to look for antiques!

Back to the rooms: we were 3 in "la chambre Burlat" which was huge and looks out over a very nice courtyard. All the rooms in this B&B look really nicely done, but if I had had my choice, I would have gone for one of the "gîtes" or independant apartments. Really, for this posh area, I don't think you'll find a better deal. (For example, a very stylish apartment for 4 people at only 700€ per week in high season.)

Both the chambre d'hôtes and the gîtes have everything you need. The pool in particuliar is very modern and overlooks the valley and hills. (Do see their website for pictures of all this!).

Thea, the other owner, is British, but speaks perfect French as well. Her husband is French. I especially appreciated their down-to-earth friendliness. (Again, this is Peter Mayle territory and can be a bit on the snobby side - See the village of Gordes for example!) Although I wasn't able to do this, I imagine that it would be an interesting evening to do the table d'hôtes with them. Thea also gives great advice about places to visit off the beaten track.

Another advantage for this chambre d'hôtes is that it is located outside of Saint Saturnin les Apt, one of the less touristy villages. Finding le Domaine Saint Jean is not easy, and it could benefit from at least a sign on the road to indicate where it's at. (Thea came to meet us and led us to the house.) However, from what I understand, the lack of signage is because the owners want to preserve the natural charm of the area.

Overall, this is a great choice for the region....
