An Absolutely Perfect Home in Gordes!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a special week in this wonderful home in early June. Everything about our experience was perfect. The home is located within walking distance of the beautiful and historic center of Gordes. The home is quite private, and sits behind a gated entry on a charming rural lane. The stone home with a soft red tiled roof is just what one congers up when thinking of an ideal Provencal residence. It is furnished with antiques and art that has carefully been collected by the owners. It looks out onto the beautiful Luberon valley. The owners, Eric and Jean, were the best! They truly went out of their way to make us feel welcome, and they were available during our entire stay to give advice on touring nearby towns, finding excellent restaurants, and suggesting places to visit in the Provencal countryside that we otherwise would not have found on our own. So, on the bottom line, I can recommend this home for your next visit to Provence without reservation!

Excellent !

Magic !

The Stone House in Gordes is a great place to stay

and from which to explore all the places around the Luberon and Provence.

It is in the center of a very superbe area, so you can all the time drive around

and discover every village or countrysides.

This means great views across the valley, but also means it is a very authentic experience.

You are amongst homes typical of the region, friendly locals and great food.

The all House is well furnished and comfortable. It offers the magic view to the Luberon

On the terrass, we where lying down and looking at the extraordinary views

on the other side is both captivating and relaxing.

Eric and Jean have done an outstanding job in creating a welcoming and homey place. And their hospitality is exceptional.

The day we arrived we had one of those travel experiences that included no sleep for over 20 hours.

Fatigued and 'not with it', we rang Eric for some help.

He rushed over and did everything ... welcomed us, moved us in!

On the table we found lots of present with fresh fruits, champagne, wine, cakes,

and a card with our names, telling us how welcome we were !

That makes it all !

He left shortly after promising to come back the next day and explain all that one can do and visit in the region.

The next day that is exactly what he did.

You just cannot say enough about such service and hospitality.

Gordes is a wonderful place to visit, the Stone House is a lovely home and

your hosts will ensure you feel welcome and get the most out of your holiday.

C'est la belle vie à Gordes !

  • 5 of 5

La vie est belle !

The Stone House is a wonderful property in the most beautiful location

within walking distance of the village of Gordes.

Amazing views from the house and gardens and the

highest standard of comfort and decor in the house.

The owners Jean and Eric were great hosts, quietly in the backround

but always helpful and charming when we needed information or help.

It was so easy to walk into the center of Gordes in the morning !

The pool area is very nice !

We just want to come back as soon as possible !

So Beautiful ! We loved it !

  • 5 of 5

Pat (Charlestown, RI Usa)

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 havd 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 !

Very Happy

  • 5 of 5

Claudia et Uli.. (Dortmund, Germany )

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!

So so Special "Tour des Beaumes" .....

  • 5 of 5

We had a really lovely week in Gordes,

and it is so depressiing to return home and this awful weather in London !

The "Tour des Beaumes" was so lovely and so convenient to explore the entire region.

The Tower 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 Tower 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 old tower 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 Tower that made it so comfortable.
