PROVENCE VILLA RENTAL

Gordes Villa Rental Photos and Description

This unique 17th century Provence villa rental is the perfect icing on the cake for your holiday in the Luberon: it may have some quirks, but if you have no problems with stairs you'll love the outdoor areas. Relax by the private swimming pool at this vacation villa in France, protected by a walled courtyard, or explore terraces built right into the cliff, with magnificent views over the Luberon and Gordes. Of course you'll want to explore the magnificent villages and cities that dot the landscape, but at the end of the day you'll look forward to returning to your own villa in Provence!

(1,500 m2) This villa is a 17th century restored stone house built on a steep cliff on the outskirts of Gordes. It is surrounded by 1,500 m2 of enclosed grounds on several levels with trees, flowers, and a beautiful view of Gordes and the Luberon.

The pool is surrounded by a 200 m2 walled terrace. There is also a pool house with a shower, garden furniture, and sun lounges. A summer kitchen has a cook-top, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, and small freezer. There is also a garden summerhouse and covered parking for one car above the cliff, accessed via a small road. Parking in front of the house is available on the private drive.

Map

This villa is located just 1 km from the center of Gordes, a hilltop village that was a stronghold of resistance during WWII. Though much of the village was destroyed, its inhabitants have carefully restored each item to its former glory. Today, it is one of the most popular villages in Provence, with a wonderful castle, arcaded streets, museums, and musical concerts. Of course there are also all the necessary shops, as well as some delicious restaurants! South of the village you can visit the Village des Bories, a curious collection of Neolithic stone huts. Don't miss the Abbey of Senanque, a 12th century monastery where monks still live. Market day in Gordes is Tuesday morning. Venturing out from Gordes, you will find yourself surrounded by picturesque villages, stunning countryside, and finally the central hub of Avignon. The entire region is one of the most well-preserved areas in France, and Avignon is easy to reach by train. Other notable villages include Cabrieres d'Avignon, featured in A Year in Provence; Cote d'Rhone with its amazing wine; and Fontaine de Vaucluse, where you can see cold springs bubbling up out of the ground. Try the olives, truffles, lamb, and creme brulee, all specialties of the area. This is the true Provence experience, one of the most authentic areas in France.
