The Location

Gordes is one of the most beautiful villages in France.

The beautiful perched village of Gordes is 700 metres away, or 8 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.

Beautiful Villa in a Beautiful Town

We vacationed at the Maison de Senanque for a month in April and May and the stay couldn't have been more amazing. The villa is perfect and a quick 10 minute walk to town. Everything in the house was extremely clean and updated, the pool was perfect for relaxing and swimming and the grounds were extremely well kept. This will be an annual trip for us and we will definitely rent this villa in our future stays. Bénédicte was very easy to work with and Agnes, who met us at the beginning of our stay, was so helpful. Thanks for such a wonderful stay!

Enjoyed everything about it

We had a great week in August 2015 in this beautiful villa. The weather was on our side and we thoroughly enjoyed the pleasant and comfortable surroundings of the beautiful and large modern house, tastefully decorated and very well equipped. It is situated in a quiet location whilst being close to Gordes. The pictures are true to life and our one-year-old baby was able to enjoy the heated pool as well as us. Warmly recommended.

A superb home

It was a real privilege to us to stay in this house. The location was perfect for visiting the cities of the Luberon. The house is spacious, bright, clean, well equipped and comfortably accommodated my family of six. The master suite has a beautiful view of the town of Gordes with its castle. The decor is a nice touch . Communication with the owner was great, she even sent us useful tips about the area . We would go back for sure!
