Very well-kept and equipped house
This was one of the better-equipped and maintained houses we have rented. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and cooking gear, well beyond what we needed for a short stay. The house is charmingly decorated - it feels like a real home rather than a generically-furnished rental. Given the so-so weather, we didn’t use the pool but did enjoy sitting in the yard a couple early evenings.
Location is central for the Luberon as well as the Southern Rhône wine towns. The house is on a fairly busy road but traffic noise did not bother. There are a lot of walking trails easily accessible.
I will note that although the listing said English was one of the languages spoken, this turned out to not be the case. We got by ok with phone translation when the caretaker showed us around, but it did make everything a little more difficult. Not a complaint, as we were the ones out of step with the language of the country, but as a comment for other French-challenged renters. I also might suggest that the house provide a page or two of written instructions as a leave-behind, as we particularly struggled with how to operate a couple of the older appliances (e.g. oven).
Overall, we were very pleased with the location, spaciousness and comfort of the house and would consider renting it again if we come back to the area.
We were 2 families with 3 kids between us and we really enjoyed the house. It had plenty of room, the house was clean and comfortable, and the pool area was great. Mrs Rivaud was super helpful when our friends needed help tracking down lost luggage and was always very quick to reply with emails.
Gordes is an amazing little gem... and a great place to jet off from to see other villages. Wish we'd booked 2 weeks! Next time we will.
We loved this villa so much we came back for the second year in a row. Very comfortable, clean. It is in a great location for traveling around Provence. It is in a quiet area, gated. It is stocked with everything you need to cook and has some toys and games if you have kids. It has a nice washer and dryer. I would recommend to my friends and family.
Wonderful house, lovely garden, great position!
A perfect spot to stay for our five days in Provence, very central to the region and only a couple of minutes drive to beautiful Gordes. The house is gorgeous and has everything you could need, linen, soap, hairdryer, full kitchen with all utensils etc. We loved our stay, merci beaucoup Marie-Odile!
Lovely house and garden fully equipped with everything you could need.
We had 6 nights at the house with our 12yr old son and his friend. Marie-Odile is a gracious host and nothing was too much trouble. She provided a large amount of information on the markets, restaurants and activities in the area which helped us plan out our time. The house and garden are beautiful, clean and equipped with everything you could need during your stay. The pool is not large but more than enough to cool down on the very hot Provence days. The location is excellent close to Gordes and other equally picturesque villages. We all had an excellent time and will be back - Highly Recommended.
Beautiful Villa in Gordes!!
We stayed in this Villa for 9 nights. It was perfect for our family of 5. The location is wonderful as a home base for many Provence villages. The villa is well stocked. The kitchen has everything you would need to cook and we enjoyed dinner on the terrace many nights. It is immaculate on the inside and out. My daughters enjoyed the pool and playing in the yard. There are games, books, movies, travel information. Beds were very comfortable. Marie was the perfect host. We loved Provence and can't wait to come back and would stay here again.
