The Experience

An 18th-century townhouse with 2nd-century Roman foundations: when the current owners were clearing the vaulted basement they found an intact mosaic floor which is shortly to be restored by experts from Avignon. You enter from the busy street into a hushed open-air courtyard with ochre walls, jasmine climbers and several small tables and chairs. You’d never know you were in the middle of town.

Both apartments (one on the first floor, the other on the second) have bedrooms away from the road, smart bathrooms with robes and lovely big living rooms. There’s also an additional double off the second floor landing for an extra couple. Kitchens have all the kit you need and you’ll find basics (coffee, tea, oil) plus a bottle of wine waiting for you. It’s a short hop to the shops for stocking up, and there are many restaurants to choose from if you can’t be bothered to cook.

In the basement there’s a small pool table, table-top football and a darts board, but mainly you’ll be exploring this lovely part of the Luberon.

Accommodation

Reviews

How wonderful to find this haven of peace and tranquillity in the middle of the busy market town of Apt. Be it a short or long stay Jen and Chris will be sure to make it memorable with their enthusiasm for their historic house and the area which surrounds them. Every comfort has been provided. Old features blend with new, and how often can you stay in a house with its own Roman mosaic floor?

Location

The neighbourhood

You're surrounded by shops (a bakery for your morning croissant) or three doors down a café. Apt was founded by the Romans in 45 BC and many ruins remain, such as the Pont Julien crossing the river Coulon a few kilometres from town. Nowadays it's best known for its authentic Saturday market which takes over the whole centre. Nearby are vineyards, cycle trails, museums and ochre mines to visit.

Local points of interest from Jen & Chris Mallon

  • Apt has a great selection of restaurants, cafes and bars, all within a few minutes walk of Cent Cinq. No need to book a taxi, or decide who is driving!
  • The apartment kitchens are fully equipped - whether you want to leave a pot of tea infusing while you grab a croissant or you want to cook up a feast with the delicious local produce. You'll find everything to make yourselves at home.
  • Within a few minutes of Apt, in every direction, there are vineyards where you can taste and buy the wonderful local wines. Check out our guest guide for our favourites!
  • There are great walks and cycle routes through the countryside. We have maps and guides, secure bike storage and a selection of tools.
  • Going out for the day? Borrow a cool bag and ice blocks, take a picnic blanket or chairs and some swimming towels. Don't forget your own suncream though!
  • If you like markets, you'll love Apt - the biggest and brightest market on a Saturday and a choice of other local markets every day of the week. Retail therapy anyone?

Introducing

Jen & Chris Mallon

Jen is from Derbyshire, Chris is from the North East, but they're both Francophiles now having holidayed here for many years. One year, flying back to Luton after another lovely French holiday, they decided to jack it all in and move out here. They bought Cent Cinq as a project and a part of their new life - they're around if you need them and are happy to chat if you want.
