“Exceptional property, beautiful location and great service. We cannot fault this villa or our hosts.
Everything we could need was already thought of and the cleaning service every second day made our experience more like a five star hotel rather than taking care ourselves for the week.
Our hosts organised a physiotherapists appointment for us and even accompanied us to translate.
The gardens are immaculate and the villa spotlessly clean.
Our hosts had provided many basics for us and a tray of champagne and delicacies to welcome us.
Great location and easy walk to the town.
Everything was perfect.”
We spent an exceptional time in Gordes and were thrilled with these accommodations. The pictures really do not do justice to the property. Jean and Eric were most welcoming and helpful. They provided a short list of good restaurants, local sites, local events and preferred places to shop that removed all of the guesswork associated with arrival at an unfamiliar location.
This was a perfect spot for us; just what we had been looking for; we were not disappointed; it was fabulous - actually more than we had expected. The decor/furnishings/appointments were stunning. It was a most comfortable home as well with all the amenities - even an ice-maker! The owners were very pleasant and helpful - when called upon, but not in the least bit intrusive. It is very peaceful with ever so many spots for relaxing...by the pool or in a cozy nook to read a book, take snooze - just perfect. We actually looked forward to the days we stayed "at home" in order to do just that. The house was immaculate as were the gorgeous grounds - with stunning views all around. It is also in a good location from which to take day trips. You definitely do need a car to do this. We would definiely recommend this to family or friends; in fact we already have done just that. A winner to be sure!!
Great life in Provence ! Wonderful paradise !
The Stone House in Gordes is an ideal place to stay when visiting the Luberon.
We have returned for 6 years and next year we will come back again.
It is unusual in our experience to come back in the same place !
The huge decoration with excellent taste, the light in the house, the confort, and it is so clean with the great housekeeper coming 3 times a week to take very good care of the House.
But the Stone House is so unique and so close to Gordes, just 5 minutes walk and yet you are secluded with your own pool with pool house and a magical garden and small olive grove for just for yourself to enjoy.
After a morning stroll up to Gordes to pick up a baguette and croissants we an return and enjoy your breakfast on the terrace with the wonderful view of the Luberon.
Equally it is a peaceful and relaxing place to sit and watch the stars at night before retiring.
On every Sunday morning there is an excellent Farmers Market in nearby Coustellet, a short drive down the hill from The House.
There is also a very good restaurant, la Coquillade, not far from Gordes.
The sunday farmer market in Coustellet, where we can get a very good, inexpensive, set your lunch menu.
There are endless walks from the House up through a remote valley to Senanque Abbey.
History lovers can go down the valley to see the Bories and caves, all of the footpaths are clear and well marked.
Historic Avignon is only 35 minute drive away. If we wish to go further a visit to Aix is a must, as is Cassis.
Here are some practical considerations.
The place is spotless and Eric and Jean, the owners, are kind and generous hosts, nothing is too much trouble.
Every year we have returned, there has been something added or improved.
Over the years we have stayed at many houses all over France, but the Stone House is unique.
It is the only place where the owners have asked at the end of our stay whether there were any improvements we should like to see for the next year.
They are really listenning to their guest, but the confort is perfect already, nothing to add really !
This year we are staying in the Stone House for three weeks which says it all.
We can recommend highly, but please keep 3 weeks for us !
A Bientot et merci beaucoup !
We had a really lovely week in Gordes,
and it is so depressiing to return home and this awful weather in London !
The "STONE HOUSE" was so lovely and so convenient to explore the entire region.
The House itself is just special, the garden, the pool,
the furniture, the "Charm".
Romantic ! You feel good there !
The information, hints and tips you gave us were all spot on,
and we found the House so easily.
Eric and Jean were fab - they welcome us so nicely as we arrived !
We explored the whole region - such pretty places.
We used the car but did a lot of nice walks around, and every morning to Gordes centre !
Gordes is and ideal base with such a lovely rental, shopping centre, the private pool
and of course the House itself.
Our week went too quickly and I am sure we will return in the future!
Many thanks once again for your help and advice and of course for the lovely touches
in the House that made it so comfortable.

This house and its surrounding property is so beautiful,
we were thrilled when we arrived for our first visit.
We have since returned two more times and each time,
we had a wonderful time.
The pool and outdoor patio are wonderful and very relaxing.
The second building with its upstairs sitting room was new for us last year
and we really enjoyed sitting up there,
reading, playing cards and listening to music.
The kitchen is fully equipped and very modern.
Everything about the property is wonderful,
but best of all are the owners, Eric and Jean,
who welcomed us into their home and did everything they could,
each time, to make our vacation the best.
The decor of course, with the beautiful antiques and art work,
just made everything better!
We cannot wait to return!
C'est Magnifique !

When we rented the house for the first time last year we were
greeted by Eric and Jean- the nicest landlords we have met
and we have rented often.
They welcomed us with some nicely arranged products from Provence;
during the time of our stay the front door name tag had our names on it;
you cant feel more at home during your vacations!
The house is wonderfully located with stunning views on the area of Gordes,
meticulously kept and tastefully furnished and has every comfort you need.
The garden offers different relaxing seating opportunities with views
- one more beautiful than the next
( and even better than the pictures):
a winter garden with a small pond in front of it,
where you can sit protected when it is chilly or windy ;
a terrace for long leisurely breakfast and dinners, the pool area,
different benches for reading, dreaming and enjoying the soothing, wonderful garden….
The two weeks were a real pleasure!
