Brilliant base in the Luberon

I've stayed at Gordes Vista before, this time was a short break around the new year. The house is well laid out for family life and or entertaining. In the summer the terrace is the focus for meals and meeting with it's fantastic views across the Luberon and oversight of the pool. This time we sat around the large open fire in the evenings taking dinner at the extendable dining table in the drawing room and breakfast and lunch at the smaller table in the living room. Its a good place for a crowd because there are plenty of places to be with others in smaller or larger groups or just to find a corner to quietly read. The kitchen is well equipped and has direct access to the terrace and living room which makes it easy if you are cooking for yourself and very practical if you have staff. The pool is heavenly with it's separate pool house. Being on a lower terrace, it is very private whilst still having extensive views over the expanse of open land before it. You could spend the entire holiday without leaving the house but there's lots of good things to see and do around. Gordes is brilliant of course but there are many other villages a perfect distance to drive for lunch or an aperitif or the obligatory market days.
