There are beautiful views from the top onto the valley so be sure to stop if en route to Sault. Not a must if only touring Luberon.

An absolute must should you be in the area. This market is enormous. 100s of stalls, music, food and drink. Arrive @ 10.30 ish. Packing up is @ 1.30 pm. Park where you can and enjoy.

Beautiful village with a lovely walk up through the ruins to the chateau at the top. It was great to try and imagine what the place was like when it was originally built. Would be great if some information boards could be provided.

great hike to what's left of this chateau. Go beyond the ancient dam and climb up the hill. Nice smell of wild plants and beautiful views. Worth a visit.

We started our day exploring the village of saint saturin les apts, which was very nice, then headed up the steps to where the chateau lies. There is a chapel up the top, plus a small garden, before you explore the stone ruins of the...More
