Villa Gordes - Garden

Garden & Pool

The garden is 3.7 acres and is on different levels in front of and behind the house, with lovely old olive trees, cherry trees and oak. At the front of the house is the south-facing terrace and pool with a fantastic Luberon view.

 

The pool is heated has the high view over the Luberon valley to the mountain, including Bonnieux and Roussillon. The pool is 9m x 4m, with steps at the shallow end. There is a sliding electric cover for security.

 

Next to the pool are sunloungers with mattresses, and a dining table and chairs under the shade of a tree.

 

There are great views from the garden and the pool area of the Luberon plain all around, with its patchwork of vineyards and orchards, and some of the famed hill-top villages of the region - Roussillon, Bonnieux, and Gordes itself.

Arriving at the house. Wide and far-reaching view from the pool and terrace.

The garden is not suitable for letting toddlers play in unattended because there are places where there is a 10ft drop to the next level. With this and the proximity of the pool to the house, any children in your party must be old enough to swim.

View from the garden behind the house. The superb village of Gordes is just 600 metres away.

To the back of the house is a terraced garden with olive and cherry trees (pictured below).

 

 

The land to the back of the house has its own olive grove.

There are two bories, which are the dry stone huts built by shepherds long ago, so typical of the region - they are very picturesque and also fun for children.

 

In the garden there is an authentic 'borie' - a dry stone hut built by shepherds long ago.

The owners of the Villa Gordes live next door. They are available in the evening if you need help with anything, from language difficulties to restaurant recommendations.

There is parking by the house for two cars. The house is 200 metres away from the road, which is itself a quiet road as it is for residents only, so this is a very peaceful location a short walk from the village of Gordes.
