The Location

Gordes, 4 miles away, is one of the most beautiful villages in France.

The house is in quiet and beautiful countryside of vineyards and orchards, right in the Golden Triangle of the Luberon, with the closest villages Gordes, 4 miles away, and Goult, 2.5miles away.

Gordes and Goult are two of the most striking villages of Provence. Gordes is the most majestic of the Luberon hill-top villages, with plenty of restaurants, cafes, shops and cultural events, while Goult is a relatively unknown treasure, with good eateries and a beautifully preserved old neighbourhood with bakery, butcher, grocery store.

Close by are all the other notable hill-top villages like Menerbes, Bonnieux, Lacoste, Goult, Oppede le vieux, and Roussillon. Each is 10-15 minutes away, and Lourmarin is 30 minutes.

Fontaine de Vaucluse and the antiques capital of Isle-sur-la-Sorgue are 15 minutes away, the medieval city of Avignon is 40 minutes, and within an hour or so are Aix-en-Provence, St Remy, Arles, Mont Ventoux, Les Baux de Provence, Orange, and the start of the Rhone wine trail.

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

Beautiful Bellvue

This is our second stay in Bellvue and both times our stay has been absolutely magical. The house is beautifully positioned with stunning views over the vineyards and within easy access of all the beautiful nearby villages including Goult, Gordes and Menerbes offering a fantastic variety of cafes and restaurants. The house itself is well equipped and very spacious and comfortable. Customer service was excellent and the property was well maintained. We were delighted with our stay and would recommend lovely Bellvue whole heartedly.

What a fantastic house, yard, pool and village!

My wife and I were lucky enough to stay at Bellvue for four fantastic months over summer with our 2 year old. It was magical. The house is stunning, living spaces are large and beautifully decorated, the kitchen is exceptionally well equipped, bedrooms spacious and comfortable, the outdoor patio is great and catches the morning sun, the perfect place for a coffee. In the heat of summer the house stays nice and cool. The yard and adjoining vineyard gave us the perfect place to relax and enjoy the views, and for our son to play all day. We all enjoyed watching the muscat grapes grow in July and August, and then eating them in September! The pool is everything you could ask for, well positioned with terrific views over the village and to the mountains, a pool house, and plenty of options for seating on the terrace, in the garden and down near the pool. The village is small yet very lovely, we enjoyed lots of long walks through it, Bistrot des Roques is excellent for a coffee and croissant in the morning, a delicious 3 course lunch, beer or apéritif in the afternoon or dinner of course. Bellvue's location is great. Short drives to Goult, Gordes, Roussilon and Menerbes, we couldn't have asked for a better position in the marvellous Luberon. The house staff are also excellent, Dominique, Yves and Olivier who keep the property clean and looking brilliant should be commended! Thank you Bellvue... and thank you Saint Pantaléon. We will return!

Magnifique Bellvue!

What a perfect place! We were a family of 4 adults and 2 children and loved every bit of the house. We spent the entire week eating outside on the very spacious terrace and the large garden was perfect for lounging and playing with the kids. The kitchen was very well equipped, we didn't miss anything. What really made us feel at home was the attention to detail; beautiful tableware, plenty of stuff to play with in the swimming pool, a petanque set etc. Dominique was very kind and helpful and the house was spotless clean. We went for delicious croissants and gateaux at Goult's bakery every morning, and enjoyed our trips to the lovely villages of the Luberon, all very close. A truly wonderful holiday, we hope to return one day. Would highly recommend staying at Bellvue!
