A little bit over 100 years

Saphira was born shortly before the Fall of the Dragon Riders

Was Saphira's egg laid immediately before/during the Fall, or did it happen a significant amount of time before that?

Christopher Paolini: It was laid fairly close to the Fall.

The Fall of the Dragon Riders ended one hundred years before Eragon found Saphira's egg.

So Saphira spent a bit over 100 years in the egg. Perhaps something like 105 years.
