The Area

Golf de Saumane is surrounded by some of the most beautiful and unspoilt countryside in France. L'Isle sur la Sorgue the nearest town is a ten minute drive away. Its picturesque canals, streams, waterwheels and alleyways have resulted in it being known as "Little Venice". 

Restaurants line the waterways and numerous antique shops, galleries and shops make a visit to L'Isle sur la Sorgue a delight. Market days are Thursdays and Sundays when the streets are crowded with antique stalls. Fontaine de Vaucluse with its unique geographical feature and its association with Petrach is well worth a visit. Explore the magnificent hilltop villages of Mènerbes, Gordes, Lacoste and Bonnieux all of which are within easy reach. The historic and cultural cities of Avignon, Aix en Provence and Saint Remy provide an exciting day out. 

Energetic visitors can hike in the mountains, kayak down the river from Fontaine de Vaucluse or go horse riding and cycling. Those of a more laid back disposition can stroll along the canal, meander through the forests or fish in the Sorgue river.
