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. Comfortable ...Read more

Additional Location Information

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 way to explore the local countryside, bike hire is available from Monsieur Fettiveau at the top of rue Emile Zola for guests who may want to head into the hills of Les Dentelles de Montmirail.
There's also lots to see and do on foot, such as exploring the many nearby vineyards and villages. Many other leisure activities are available nearby, including tennis, horse-riding, motocross, and kayaking, and at Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, there is an excellent 18-hole golf course with great views.
