Nestled into spacious gardens just a 5-minute walk from the centre of Gordes, this charming, stone-built house delivers the perfect combination of a prime location and outstanding views across the green and gold countryside of the Luberon valley.

Maison de Gordes is built into the olive-growing terraces that have defined the local landscape for centuries, thereby allowing for a larger-than- average garden area with space for a good-sized pool and several seating areas providing sun and shade throughout the day. Inside, the décor is timeless country house style, tastefully in keeping with the area and wonderfully comfortable whether you visit in the height of summer or the milder days of spring and autumn. With two bedrooms and two bathrooms, the house works well for a smaller family or two couples, with enough wow factor to make it a great honeymoon option or special occasion splurge.

With Gordes on the doorstep, dinner out is easy to reach and hard to resist. If you’ve had a long day exploring however, it might be just as tempting to cook up something simple in the outdoor kitchen, and savour the glorious Luberon views along with your favourite ice cold tipple as the first stars of the evening appear.

The local area

Gordes is chock-full of excellent places to eat, from pavement cafes to fine-dining restaurants, many with a view as impressive as the menu. Try the Tuesday market for little take-home gifts such as lavender or linens as well as local honey, sausage and jam; just add bread and wine and you’ve got instant lunch! Gordes will be your first and regular port of call for shopping and eating, but there are many other stunning villages within a 20 to 30-minute drive, including Bonnieux, Ménerbes, Roussillon and Lacoste. The countryside is crossed by multiple hiking paths and bike routes, some gentle, some seriously challenging and all well covered by the local tourist information maps. If you visit in lavender season, from late June to mid-August, the purple fields are an unforgettable sight; fans of this magical plant should visit the Musée de la Lavande at nearby Coustellet, which also has an excellent deli for picnic supplies. And if you’ve got the luxury of time on your side for exploration, the celebrated cities of Arles, Nîmes and Orange are all reachable within 60 – 90 minutes.

Our choice of French properties is diverse, ranging from simple charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal.

To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.

There’s no better way to while away leisurely holiday hours than by visiting the boutiques, chic cafés and flower markets of elegant Aix-en-Provence or wandering the cobbled streets of the beautiful hilltop village of Gordes. And in Provence the past is ever-present in Tarascon’s Medieval, Romanesque and Gothic influences and the Roman amphitheatre in Arles.

Introduce fragrant fields of lavender, rolling hills and the red salt lagoons of the nearby Camargue National Park and before you lies a holiday destination to rival any other, complemented by our selection of handpicked luxury villas to help you make the most of your luxury holiday in Provence.
