'La Farigoule' and Le Sarriette are two gites situated on a secluded, wooded hillside amidst ancient oaks and pines in the Luberon National Park between Murs and Gordes. It is an ideal place for nature lovers and those who want to “get away from it all” but is just minutes from the spectacular hilltop village of Gordes, and with easy access to all major Provençal tourist attractions.
La Farigoule (sleeps up to 6) and its adjoining sister gite, 'Le Sarriette' (sleeps 2), form part of the small estate, Au Temps Jadis (In Times Past). Both properties are private from each other and situated at the end of a private driveway, which itself leads from a quiet country lane. There is unrestricted access to surrounding forest and exceptional walks, including a classic ramble down the Veroncle Gorge, with its ruined water mills. Here the forest shades you from the hot Provençal sun and the air is scented with wild thyme, lavender and savory.
Both La Farigoule and Le Sarriette have private terrace areas with an outdoor dining table, plus a parasol to provide relief from the often hot afternoon sun. Escape the pressures of modern life; sit back and unwind, perhaps with a glass of one of many fine local wines. Let your eyes feast on the spectacular scenery and far reaching views of the National Luberon Park.
All of our guests have access to the 'Au Temps Jadis' Large above ground swimming pool (9.1m x 4.6m), shared with the owners (when in residence). Lie back in one of our sun loungers and listen to the song of the cicadas wafting on the hot, herb-scented air.
Au Temps Jadis is a great place for those who enjoy the outdoor life. There’s hiking, mountain biking, climbing, horse riding and – not far away – golf and fishing.
The owners are available to help and advise. Home grown seasonal vegetables are often available from their organic garden, along with free range eggs from their own hens.
