|Minimum Stay||4 - 7 nights|
Ideally located in Lubéron parc of Provence, 5km away from Gordes village, this property is south-oriented and located in a quiet area, though not isolated. It was fully refurbished with luxury materials. The decoration is extremely refined, most furniture are antiques from l’Isle-Sur-Sorgue. The villa is very cosy and easy to live-in (the kitchen opens onto an terrace to eat outside, complete gourmet cooking fittings, TV lounge and library upstairs….). The house is fully air-conditioned, and is especially fitted for large families or several couples with children/babies. The three bedrooms on the ground floor have each their own en suite bathrooms (walk-in in polished concrete for two bedrooms, and bathtub for the other one). The two additional bedrooms upstairs share a bathroom with a walk-in shower decorated with pebbles. A landscape gardener designed the garden, that enjoys beautiful views. The garden benefits from a swimming pool (protected by an automatic safety cover) surrounded by a sunbathing teck terrace, and a pétanque playground. Additionnally the swimming-pool is heated from end of April to September.
Baby-sitting and maid service can be arranged on demand.

Short stay (min. 3 days) is possible, subject to period and availability.
This is a very spacious and well-equipped villa, close to Gordes and with easy access to the many beautiful villages of Provence. As the pool is heated it is useable every day, even early in the morning, and it's a joy to swim in. The kitchen, sleeping and sitting areas are all very comfortable with everything supplied - and the wifi works!! Although there was an issue early on the owner did everything possible to resolve it as quickly as she could. The bathrooms are small, one doesn't have a shower, only a bath tub but that might not be a problem for some. The gardens are beautiful, very well taken care of and nearby walks (or early morning runs) through vines aren't to be missed. The air-conditioning was very effective when needed, though that wasn't often. We found the stove hopelessly slow, so if you're planning a banquet, be warned!! All in all though you should really enjoy a stay here as it's very well presented, fantastically located and at a very good price.
"Our family just got back from a week at this beautiful house in Gordes. The house was thoughtfully furnished and included everything that we needed: fully equipped kitchen, linens, children''s toys, travel guides, basic household supplies, etc. The house is convenient to Gordes and the surrounding towns of the Luberon.
We have rented numerous houses in Europe and the US in the past few years. We have never received a welcome as helpful and kind as we did here. Prior to our arrival, the owner contacted a local bicycle shop and arranged for bikes to be delivered to us at the house (in correct sizes for our 4 children). She also arranged for the caretaker to make dinner for us the first night. Dinner was delicious! It was wonderful not to have to rush out the store and plan a meal the first night. The owner also left a kind welcoming gift of bread, wine, sausage, milk , juice, coffee, etc. to get us through breakfast the next morning. It was nice gesture which made us feel welcome and a bit less hurried on our first day in the house.
The house is set in a very quiet residential neighborhood just outside of Gordes. The surrounding roads have very little traffic, which makes them nice for walking or biking. The visitors'' book has helpful (and accurate) recommendations for restaurants, bakeries, butchers, etc. in the area.
Our children had a delightful time swimming in the pool, playing boules and riding bicycles on the country roads surrounding the house. This house is perfect for a family vacation in Provence!
"Our families had a dream come true holiday. Everything was as it was advertised. We truly enjoyed every moment. We rate this home as an amazing place that we can recommend to anyone who wishes to fall in love with France all over again. The owners were amazing and very helpful with all of our needs and wishes. In the end we felt like we were leaving our home. We look forward to returning soon!"
Ein wundervolles Haus in der schönen Landschaft des Luberon. Geräumig, vor allem die Küche großartig ausgestattet. Der Garten ist ebenfalls wunderbar, gut gepflegt und sehr ruhig. Der Pool liegt schön und ist sehr gut beheizt.
Hervorzuheben ist die großartige Organisation und die liebevolle Vorbereitung durch die Gastgeberin Lisa!
maison et jardin très agréables, équipement extraordinaire pour toute la famille
