The Gordes Cottage, Gordes, Provence

2-bed cottage with pool near Gordes


Set in a rustic hamlet 5 minutes from the stunning hill-top village of Gordes, the cottage is a 2-bedroom Provence rental gite with pool that is close enough to the hill-top villages to get your baguette in the morning but not give up the peace and tranquillity of the countryside. The house is not suitable for children aged under 14.

Living Rooms

The house is laid out over two floors. On the top floor are the bedrooms, one bathroom, and kitchen. The air-conditioned kitchen is equipped with oven, 4-ring cooker, fridge-freezer, microwave, dishwasher, Nespresso and cafetiere. The clothes washing machine is in the upstairs bathroom.


Stairs to the lower level take you to a very cosy living room with ancient flagstones on the floor and an impressive fireplace taking up one wall. There is also a TV with satellite and Engish channels, HiFi, and WiFi internet throughout.


There are two bedrooms, the master bedroom has either a 1.8m-wide (6ft) bed or two singles, and the second bedroom has a 1.4m-wide (4.6ft) double.

Garden & Pool


Arriving at the house, and the pool.

The cottage is next to, but private from, the owners' house, and has use of their pool. The pool measures 10m x 5m (33 x 16ft) and is shared with the owners, but they do not use the pool much.


Outside the cottage there is an off-street parking spot, and then a gravel terrace with dining table and sunloungers under the shade of the pergola, with gas barbecue alongside.

The Location

Gordes is one of the most beautiful villages in France.

The beautiful perched village of Gordes is 5km (3 miles) away. 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.

Wonderful location for provencal holidays

We had a very nice week in this beautiful holiday home. From the very first moment we felt very comfortable. The house has been restored with great care and attention to detail, yet is practical and functional. The pool with its stately size invites you to swim at any time. The very pleasant neighbours are very friendly and open. We will be happy to come back! Many greetings from Dresden, E. B

The perfect vacation

I spent a week in this beautiful, perfect cottage in the prettiest part of Provence in the middle of June with my two best friends. We couldn’t have picked a better location or a finer place. The cottage is so cosy you just wish you could stay there. You simply do not want to go home. We had the best time, enjoying the beautiful surroundings, the Luberon, the sun, swimming in the pool, sun bathing, visiting all the pretty villages and markets. Enjoying the great food and wine etc. We recommend the house to everyone wanting to experience the best of Provence and enjoying the comfort of a cosy home away from home. We simply loved it and would love to go back. We couldn’t have had better hosts than Dorothée and Didier.
