don't believe the guide book

Poor old Apt gets a bit of a slating in the Lonely Planet guide. OK, maybe it hasn't got extensive roman ruins, a stretch of coastline, or been linked to famous artists - but Apt is a nice place.

We spent a couple of days here and really enjoyed it for what it is - a sizeable and relaxed market town, that is distinctly French with Arab influences.

The Saturday market was excellant, and there are plenty of shops, cafes and restaraunts to explore, with people-watching being high on the list. It doesn't have glamour, but it's Real.

We had a hire car with us, and took the opportunity to drive up to some of the surrounding hill top villages. They are Beautiful (see the linked sections).
