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.

Happiness in the Luberon

This bastidon is wonderfully decorated and set in a calm residence, with a lovely pool alongside. A real moment of relaxation.

Beautiful holiday in beautiful surroundings

We spent 4 nights in the apartment and we felt very comfortable there. Everything is very tasteful and practical, and definitely very clean. Due to the cold weather we could not enjoy the beautiful terrace and the swimming pool, but enjoyed all the more the excellent heating! The apartment is quietly located opposite the old town and is ideally suited to explore the very beautiful area. Within an hour's drive, there are plenty of places to visit: Luberon, Vaucluse, Colorado de Rustrel, Roussillon and many other medieval towns. We can recommend this accommodation without hesitation.

Perfect Stay

Everything was perfect, we knew it was difficult to park in these small old villages but Le Mirabeau, in Les Bastion was perfect for us. We were three women and the two bedrooms are prefect size for three of us. Even in June the weather is very hot there. We left the house early in the morning each day and hit the villages which Philippe recommended us to visit and it was all beautiful markets. So easy to drive each day, 30-40 mins to everywhere. We had lunch in the villages and come back around 4pm jump into the share swimming pool and we start cooking and relaxing at the terrace sitting outside, looking at the lovely mountain view. Enjoying the wine, cheese and fresh vegetables and fruits. Philippe was very friendly and helpful, his taste of decoration made us very comfortable and feel like home. the little garden with Provence flower lavender, rosemarie and roses add too. Even it is a small attached house, it is very quite. You need to take mosquitos spray and sun screen. Enjoy it, it is out of the world beauty :) And we will be back soon. Merci Philippe
