House rental in Gordes.
Beautifulcut stone house, in a complex of 7 houses, at the entrance of the gorgeous village of Gordes, a few minutes away from the village centre: you will be able to discover its castle, market and shops. By car, you will be able to visit Sénanque Abbey, the village des Bories and the many small villages that are so particular to Luberon.
The 'Domaine de la Bastide de Léa' has a heated swimming pool (7x4 metres) for the 7 houses.
Completely closed complex.
2 free and secured underground parking lots.
Overall, we had a good time in Gordes. The house has everything you need and is located in a quiet place.
The only reason we chose this house at the time of booking is because it was mentioned that it is located within 10 min of walking distance from the center of town. I'm not sure how it is possible, but, in my opinion, it's not a walking distance. Especially, after taking into account that there are almost no sidewalks and the streets are very narrow with quite intensive traffic going both directions. The town itself is located in the mountains and the streets get very steep sometimes. It is simply dangerous to walk like that, though I've seen some people walking. And it is definitely not a 10 min walk.
In regards to our stay, I would only mention a few drawbacks that were disappointing to us and if we would know them in advance, we wouldn't have rented this place.
First, the owner of the property is not located nearby. He lives within 3 hours of driving distance from Gordes. There is no one to ask a question or report a problem (I don't like to call or email and bother people with little things). For example, the light blew up in the toilet room on the second floor and, since there is no window in that small space, it made it impossible to use it. After I emailed the landlord about this problem, he responded and called an electrician, who came when we weren't home. Such a small thing could've not be an issue if the owner would live nearby with his keys.
Second, the description says that there is a heated pool. Well, unfortunately, we didn't have a heated pool. After our stay the owner said that it is heated only for the summer months (June-August). We stayed there in the end of May and no one said that the pool will not be heated. There is no mentioning of the specific timeframe when the pool is heated on the website.
Last thing, which is not that important, but still it would be nice to know in advance about these things. There are two TV sets in the house and neither of them worked. We tried several times, but nothing worked.
One very last thing, which is kind of our fault since we didn't review carefully the listing and the description. There is absolutely no view from this house. The terrace is nice, but it is absolutely enclosed and all you see is the walls. The house shares a wall with a Bed & Breakfast, which has a nice view. But this house has no view whatsoever.
We are a family of 5 staying for a week in this very well functioning house. Less than 10 min walk to the main square in Gordes. Well equipped house, cosy court yard and very nice pool area. Perfect location for enjoying Gordes and exploring the area.
Our family had an excellent stay at this delightful rental in Gordes. Only a 10 min walk to the town square, it was very convenient for us. Lovely terrace with a large dining table and lounge chairs to enjoy the sunshine. Nice size kitchen that we used almost every evening for dinner. Secure, underground parking, and the owners keep the place very clean and tidy. We really enjoyed ourselves. The owners were fantastic to deal with and we had no problems making our arrangements with them. The pool was right next to our unit and easily accessible. Clean and refreshing on a hot day. Never heard a sound from anywhere else in the complex but we were lucky that no one was in the unit beside us while we were there.
The town of Gordes itself can't be beat for anyone looking to stay in an old town in Provence. Lots of wonderful walking/running/mountain biking trails nearby and very central to other towns in Western Provence, as well as the larger city of Avignon.
Really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to other families or groups of 2 couples.
We enjoyed our week at this property. It is in a good, quiet location within 10 minutes walk of the centre of Gordes. There is a pleasant outside terrace with shade, a daybed, dining table and sun-loungers The maisonette is well equipped and very clean. It has secure parking in an underground area. The complex was very quiet so probably most suits groups of adults (although we went with our two children and they enjoyed it - despite us telling them to play quietly in the pool and garden!)
La casa era forse più bella di come sembrava nelle foto. Molto bello il complesso dei sette appartamenti e molto carina la piscina,a tratti in po' sovraffollata. Decisamente comodo al centro ( 5 min a piedi). I proprietari molto gentili e disponibili
Une maison idéale pour des vacances en famille.
Joliment décorée, avec tout le confort ..." comme à la maison".
Pour les amoureux de la pierre.
NB : Propriétaires sympathiques
