Gorgeous place for a Provence holiday

  • 5 of 5

Tour des Beaumes provides beautiful accommodation that's a great balance of peaceful and lively. The tower itself provides a tranquil base but is close enough to Gordes to give you lots to see and do (and eat).

Eric and Jean are wonderful hosts, friendly and helpful but never intrusive. The accommodation is kept immaculately clean and we would recommend a stay to anyone visiting the area.

Romantic, Special, Unic, Clean, Superb !

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the holiday exceeded our expectations.

We received a very warm greeting from Eric and Jean which extended throughout our stay.

They really have mastered the art of being helpful without being intrusive.

The tower is tastefully decorated and a lot of thought has gone in to the finishing touches which helped to make the holiday so special.

"La Tour des Beaumes" is in such a beautiful and relaxing environment and surrounded by small villages, however we became so comfortable that some days it was incredibly difficult to muster up enough enthusiasm to leave the pool area!!

Gordes is a beautiful town with lots of character but we did find eating out very expensive.

We have had a few holidays in the South of France but nothing has come close to the holiday in the tower, we would love to go back but are never organised enough to book that far in advance!

We will now make the reservation earlier to be sure to get this place.

It is really a dream for us !

See you next year
