BEAUTIFUL PRIVATE ESTATE IN GORDES -TENNIS, POOL, VIEWS

Gordes Estate Rental Photos and Description

10 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, 3 half bathrooms, sleeps 22

FontBlanche is an enclosed 10-acre mas (country estate) surrounded by vineyards, olive orchards, cherry trees and spectacular vistas of the Luberon Valley and its hill villages. It is located at the foot of the beautiful village of Gordes, within walking distance of its activity, but resting in its own peaceful space. Because it nestles on a slight plateau, it looks over the expansive and beautiful agricultural plains of the valley.

FontBlanche is a place where you can read the day away in a comfortable chaise, or lounge on one of several sunny patios with an occasional plunge in the pool. Or you can leave the property to seek what it is that makes people love Provence.

Fontblanche, with its complex of buildings, has been newly renovated and can accommodate up to 22 people comfortably with roomy, private bedrooms, private baths and spacious common rooms which are generously sized for large and small gatherings.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • pets considered
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • children welcome
  • wheelchair inaccessible
Guestbook comments from the owner
hi Davis,



I keep meaning to email you about the wonderful time we had at Fontblanche, but I've spent so much time raving about it to everyone I talk to that I forget to send you the same feedback!



We all loved your property; it was even better than described! We all felt that the pictures don't do it justice. We knew we were in for a treat right from that first bend in the road while driving towards the property, where you suddenly see Gordes right in front of you and the valley to your right. We fell in love with Fontblanche from the moment we took our first drive through the wrought-iron gates and saw the views of the valley spread out ahead, and stepped out of our cars to a lavender-scented breeze. It was just perfect.



There were lots of rooms to choose from, my husband and I got the best one (we think), in the Bergerie. There were lots of common spaces for us to hang out as a group, mostly we stayed close to the kitchen on the upper terrace. We also loved the loggia area under the grapevines, where we had many good meals. All the kids had a fantastic time, thanks to the toy room, DVD player, and tennis court, and of course the pool too. Just a couple of incidents with one of the pool metal stairs having a sharp edge (my 4 yr old daughter couldn't get her foot wet for 1 1/2 weeks because her cut was so deep- poor thing), but it didn't stop her from enjoying herself. The men enjoyed the built-in BBQ too.



Florence was very helpful too, and she booked us a chef at short notice to come and cook for us, so many thanks to her for arranging a great meal prepared by Giuseppina! And our housekeeper was great; we managed to have some nice conversations with our limited knowledge of each other's languages - it was good French immersion!



A couple of us followed your advice and went up to Gordes early in the morning a couple of times to buy freshly-baked pastries, still warm from the oven, and they were heavenly.



We found the location to be very central too; we went to Bonnieux (la Flambe) and Roussillon (bistrot de roussillon), and were only an hour away from wine-tasting in Chateauneuf and Gigondas. We also visited Pont du Gard, Avignon and Isle sur la Sorgue/Vaucluse, which were close by.



Overall, an outstanding holiday and we will definitely return someday, if just to hang out at the property for the entire week! Your family is very fortunate to have such a wonderful property.

A STUNNING LOCATION JUST OUTSIDE OF GORDES

What a fantastic property! There were 15 of us for 2 weeks in this lovely estate and everyone enjoyed every minute. The description was accurate regarding all the amenities and even better. It is very well stocked with kitchen items and we were able to use the vast selection of dishes and glasses provided. It is a nice blend of casual with elegant so we felt at home.
The living room and dining room in the main house were perfect for inside dining and evening viewing on the Apple TV of all the pictures we took during the day. We loved the outside tables for our evening meals when nice outside and the views!!!
The pool was used and enjoyed on our lazy days and beach towels were provided. The pool house with the bath was a nice luxury.
Everything was clean and each morning the gal would come and clean every bath,the kitchen and also wash all the floors.
Besides she cleaned up outside. What an extra bonus for all of us.
When we had a problem with the internet connection, the manager, Florence was there to reset it in a jiffy.
I highly recommend this property to anyone that is looking for a great spot in Provence. It is just half way between Avignon and Aix and close to all the small hill towns.
Two of our guys even rode their rented bikes up to Mt Ventoux, just like the Tour d'France! What a thrill for them.
I suggest you rent this for at least 2 weeks so you can enjoy all that the house and Provence have to offer!
