Maison + Loft Les Martins, Gordes, Provence

Designer Provence living for 4

 

A designer 2-bedroom rental merging two adjoining 1-bedroom properties, in a small hamlet near Gordes, dating back to 1850 and beautifully decorated in a blend of contemporary and Provencal. Each bedroom is independent, and there is a courtyard garden and outdoor jacuzzi/hot tub.

Living Rooms

 

Dining room with fireplace built into the wall.

On the ground floor are the living room, dining room and kitchen. With its fireplace and armchairs the dining room acts as a second living room in the winter. The ceiling retains its original beams, while the floor is polished cement.

From dining room through to living room. Well-equipped kitchen.

The kitchen is fully equipped for people who love to cook, with a large fridge-freezer, dishwasher, large oven, 5-ring stove, washing machine, Nespresso, and microwave. Laundry with washer and dryer in separate building.

 

Living room with DVD video projector.

Like the dining room the living room faces south and is a light and very elegant room, but also very comfortable. A video projector plays DVDs onto the wall opposite the bookcase. There is no TV but the house has WiFi internet throughout.



Bedrooms

There are two double bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. The master bedroom is in the main house, and across the courtyard upstairs is the second bedroom, which offers complete privacy for a second couple.

Upstairs are the master bedroom and en suite bathroom, both facing south over the courtyard garden, and with the same 'footprint' as the living and dining rooms below.

The bathroom is down and up three steps, and has a walk-in shower, pedestal bath, double basins and WC.

Accessed by an outside staircase in the courtyard, the second bedroom accommodation comprises the 1.6m/5.25ft-wide bed and en suite shower, basin and WC, as well as sitting room with TV/DVD and even a small kitchen.

The Location

Gordes is one of the most beautiful villages in France.

Les Martins is in a quiet country hamlet 4 miles from the stunning village of Gordes, which is the biggest of the Luberon hill-top villages, with plenty of restaurants, cafes, shops and cultural events, so it is an ideal base from which to explore the Luberon and Provence.

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.

You'll find a market every day at a different village, including the one in Gordes 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; 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.
