Apartment Gordes - Garden

Garden & Pool

The apartment is part of a larger property over 2.8 ha of land (7 acres) so space is plentiful. The large pool is shared with the other two rental units on the property, Suite Bonnieux and Apartment Lacoste (if they are occupied), and the apartment has its own private terraces facing away from any other. The pool area is set away from the apartment, ensuring peace and privacy.

The apartment looks over another lavender field (bottom right) towards the village of Gordes, hence its name.

 

Beyond the lavender field on the south side of the property are the two hill-top villages of Bonnieux and Lacoste, and the Luberon mountain.These medieval villages (below) have been facing each other across the valley for well over 1000 years.
