This Provencal farmhouse with character has been renovated in 2013. It is on an elevated position and overlooking the heights of the village of Gordes (within 8 minutes on foot) with unique exceptional views. There are beautiful pieces of furniture, a beautiful recent and antique tableware, a library, many beautiful books, big bedrooms, 3 separate toilets, a separate laundry room and recent high quality bedding.

There are L’Occitane welcome products in the bathroom, a Wi-Fi Internet connection, a large 1600 m² terraced garden planted with olive trees, evergreen oaks, big pines, cypresses, lavender and wild rosemary. There is a quality Weber barbecue and a lovely terrace that is sunny all day long. The house is very quiet and overlooks the Vallon de Gordes and the Luberon with stunning views. There are beautiful sunsets. The house, bath and pool linen is provided, 4 h of cleaning are included per week and the pool man comes daily.
Family house, owners from the artistic community, great respect for nature and authenticity and hospitality.
Unforgettable stay, wonderful region, true chic and authentic atmosphere, located in the village of Gordes, nice walks to go down the market of Gordes (8 minutes) via the road of the chemin de la crête. Overlooking position with views of the Luberon, on the heights of Gordes, it is an old, happy and welcoming house full of charm where it is pleasant to relax by the pool or read on the shaded terraced garden decorated with lavender and beautiful trees and a true old “borie”. The house is very clean. Beds regularly receive an anti-dust mite treatment.
True haven of peace and nature, relaxing views, lovely sunsets, beautiful pool and recent and comfortable bedding.
This beautiful Provençal villa, overlooking a stunning view in Gordes, was clean, comfortable, and very well equipped. Our girl's trip was to soak up and explore the beauty of Provence, but the ambience didn't end when we got "home." Tile floors, stone walls, large windows, balcony, porches, and the grounds were an extension of everything we loved about being in France. The owners were most helpful before we even arrived, responding quickly to our many questions, and Brigitte, our on-site hostess, made reservations, suggested markets, and filled in the gaps you don't get from a Rick Steves travel book! These 5 ladies from Georgia are looking forward to another stay at Mas Odaline.
We were met by the property manager Brigitte, who was clear in communication, welcoming, and helpful but not intrusive. The house is a short walk from the center of the village, with wonderful sunrises and sunsets from its position atop the ridge. We were just 2 people but could have comfortably had 6 or even 8. The pool is great, modern amenities like fast wifi and a gas grill make living easy. Great location from which to explore Provence. Highly recommend for your Provence vacation!
We had the most beautiful time in one the most beautiful villages in France. Our stay at Mas Odaline was perfect in every way. The villa was tastefully decorated,clean and well appointed with all you could ask for. We were two families meeting up from different parts of the world that consisted of 4 adults and 3 teenage girls for a total of two weeks. The Villa is situated just 800m from the the centre of Gordes so every morning we walked into town for our fresh bread and pastries to have with our fresh fruit & hot coffee. We explored many other villages close by and as beautiful as they were Gordes was definitely the right choice. There is a market held in town every weekend where we bought fresh cheeses, meats and breads.
Being such a large group we cooked mostly every night and dined outside under the stars, but there were more than enough restaurants close by if you wanted to dine out. Caroline and Regis the owners kept us up to date right up until to the time of our arrival where we were met by Brigitte who showed us around the villa.
We highly recommend Villa Mas Odaline to families or groups of friends as there are ample bathrooms and toilets as well 4 bedrooms and various seating/lounging areas around the house in and out. There is good wifi internet throughout the house and a great pool to chill in. All in all we had a great time.
Le mas Odaline is a beautiful house, located on the outskirts of the historic and popular Gordes. Location up the hill and within walking distance to Gordes. The town is full of tourists at daytime and you may have a hard time finding a place to park your car. However, the house is practically situated in peace and quiet uphill.
We were very kindly received by the sweet and welcoming Brigitte who gave us a good introduction to the house, and who brought us delicious cherries, melon and two nice bottles of wine as welcoming gift.
The house is basically fine, built in yellow stones, which are the hallmark of the area. It has a lovely view of the hills and there is a lot of outdoor areas in different levels. The pool area is great and seems newly built. The pool is great and has a perfect size and depth for swimming. As a children's pool, it may be less suitable, since it is deep at both ends. A guy discreetly passes by once a week in the morning to maintain the pool and garden.
The house is spacious with 4 bedrooms. Two of these share a balcony with beautiful views. There are two bathrooms - both with a bath tub - and three toilets that after French tradition are in separate room from the bathrooms. There is a nice and cozy living room and a dining room from where you have access to a small porch and the garden (not to the pool, unfortunately). There is of course a kitchen – a small one though – and a utility room.
All in all we were happy with our choice of house! However, a few minor things could be pointed out: Especially the bathrooms are kind of worned out… To be honest the house could do with some maintenance and some “refreshing” finish here and there… This would raise the standard quite a bit! :-)
A last thing (and we cannot blame anyone for this – except maybe the weather Gods!;-)) Staying in Provence is some kind of a lottery because of the Mistral. Even to us “Northerners” it became a challenge. We only had a single weeks vacation, and for four days we were paralyzed because of heavy, noisy and freezing storms… Everything outside had to be fixed, all shutters, windows and doors firmly closed, we could not swim, sunbathe, eat outside etc. during this period :-( Well, we were just unlucky, and we are only stating this because people not familiar with the Mistral should be aware of this risk; Besides that – le Lubron et la Provence are just fabulous! :-)
Nous avons passé un séjour merveilleux dans la maison de Caroline et Regis. Très agréable à vivre, la maison et son environnement sont magiques. Chacun d'entre nous adore cet endroit. C'est un paradis pour les vacances. Proche de tous les lieux à visiter, plein de départs en promenade à pied, beaucoup de plaisirs à vivre aussi dans la maison et dans le merveilleux jardin en restanques, et bien sûr la piscine et sa plage immense. Nous avons apprécié les deux salles de bains, les balcons avec vue imprenable sur le Luberon, le salon et la salle à manger très spacieux, et en plus le voisinage très sympathique. Proche du village mais assez en retrait pour bien se reposer. Et les propriétaires sont formidables.
My husband and I would thoroughly recommend this beautiful villa and would certainly like to come back in the future. The villa has a lovely terrace with pool overlooking the valley and garden with BBQ. The breathtaking village of Gordes is a quick stroll down the road with a number of great restaurants, bakers and bars. The location is perfect for walking and we set off in a different direction every day including to other hilltop villages, Les Village des Bories and Abbaye Notre-Dame de Senanque, returning to relax in our fully equipped villa with everything we needed.
It is 800 m from the market and the village centre of Gordes (8 minutes on foot), 40 km from the high-speed train station of Avignon and 30 minutes from exit Avignon Sud on the motorway. Cultural highlights (Arles, Avignon, Aix, etc.) 50 minutes from Aix-en-Provence and its music festivals and opera, 45 minutes from Avignon, the Cité des Papes, the festival (July) and 15 minutes from Isle-sur-la-Sorgue and its second-hand goods. There are very nice hikes, exhibitions, shows and many festivals, restaurants and markets. Must-see: the Tuesday market on the place de Gordes within 7 minutes on foot. It is typically Provencal under its colourful parasols, its artistic stalls of fruits and vegetables, its wines, its nougat, its local oils, its printed cotton fabrics, its sundials, its glazed stoneware, its jams, etc. Apt (Saturday morning), fruits in June, July and August and very good “crus” from the Luberon and Ventoux.
