The Location

Gordes is one of the most beautiful villages in France.

The beautiful perched village of Gordes is 500 metres away, or 5 minutes walk. Gordes has a great choice of restaurants, specialist shops, cultural events, and is alive all year round. It has the best amenities of any Luberon village. This location allows you to be by the village but in a calm setting.

The Luberon is known for the beauty of its perched villages, in addition to Gordes, close by are Menerbes, Bonnieux, Lacoste, Oppede-le-vieux, Roussillon, Goult and many others. Each is a short drive away. The towns of Isle sur la Sorgue and Fontaine de Vaucluse, 15 minutes away, are also must-sees.

You'll find a market every day at a different village, including the colourful Gordes market on Tuesday mornings.

Away from the Luberon, the rest of Provence is at most a day-trip away: the cities of Avignon, Aix, Arles, Nimes, Marseille are about an hour's drive or less; the natural wonders of the Les Baux de Provence, Gorges du Verdon, the Alps and the Rhone wine trail; the French Riviera (Cote d'Azur) from Monte Carlo to St Tropez. Even Italy and Spain are in striking distance.

Amazing stay!

We had a wonderful time (2 adults and 2 children aged 6 and 8) staying at this property. From start to finish, Didier and Philippe made sure that communication was seamless and we had everything we needed. The property has everything you could ask for and more (very well equipped) and the garden is just gorgeous. The communal pool was also lovely (if not a little cold) and we had a great time exploring this beautiful area. We will be back!

A wonderful little retreat. Quiet, Clean, equipped. Super nice patio overlooking the Luberon Valley. Close enough to downtown for a little exercise. The pool is very very nice. We will come back.
