“La Garance” is an idylic stone villa set in the Provencal countryside, 6 kilometers from the village of Gordes.

The interior of the house is spacious, comfortable and bright. It is furnished with a mix of antiques and contemporary furniture and artwork. There is an ample living room with stone fireplace; a fully equipped kitchen; a dining area adjoining the kitchen; 3 bedrooms, 2 ½ bathrooms and a utility room. The terrace and outdoor pool feature lovely views of the Luberon.

The space

"La Garance" is named after a plant which grows wild in the garden amongst olive and almond trees, lavender, rosemary, roses and oleanders.

We are new to AirBnB (January 2017) but have rented this wonderful house successfully on other platforms and through word of mouth for nearly 20 years! We guarantee that you will fall in love with this special place, just as we have and just as dozens of visitors have over the years.

Discounts are available for longer stays and off-season dates. Please ask!

About the House:

The main areas of the house are all built on one level and have an open plan ideal for family holidays and for entertaining. There is a fully equipped kitchen and dining area with a bar (stools for 4 people), dining room table (can seat up to 8), and French doors that open onto the shaded terrace, which is built on the south side of the house and sheltered from the famous Mistral wind. The large living room is connected to the entrance vestibule and kitchen and also has French doors leading out to the terrace. There is a functioning, wood-burning stone fireplace that serves as the focal point of the main seating area.

The master bedroom adjoins the living room and is at the far end of the house. It has a queen size bed, an en-suite bathroom (bath with shower, bidet), a walk-in closet/dressing room and an antique stove and desk. It also has French doors that open onto the terrace. At the other end of the house there is a full bathroom (bath with shower), a powder room, and two more bedrooms. The larger of these has two twin beds, a desk, and a dresser, and French doors with steps leading to the garden and pool. The smaller bedroom has one twin bed and a comfortable trundle bed. There is also a well-equipped utility room with washer and drier. The house comfortably sleeps six people.

As mentioned above, the living room, dining room, and master bedroom each have French doors that open onto a lovely flagstone terrace which is one of the delights of the house. The terrace is shaded by a mature Mulberry tree and is the perfect place to relax and enjoy meals in hot summer weather (or even on warm days during the winter!). There are many local markets nearby and our kitchen is fully equipped for people who love to cook. Lots of cookbooks in English and French too!

Of course, during the hotter months guests can relax while enjoying the private swimming pool in the garden and its spectacular view of the valley and the Luberon mountain.

This is a family home and throughout the house there are many bookcases filled with English and French language art books, novels, children’s books, cookbooks, and a wide selection of guidebooks. We know the area intimately and we are happy to give advice of all kinds for things to see and do.

Practical details:

The appliances include a mixed electric/gas burner stove-top; built in oven; dishwasher; refrigerator with separate freezer compartment; microwave oven; washing machine and dryer; two hot water tanks; hair dryers; a CD player; Satellite TV with DVD player; DSL and WiFi. Bed linens and towels, including pool towels, are provided. Most of the windows have screens.

Our "gardienne," who we adore, will prepare the house for your arrival and comes once a week to clean. There is a renter’s manual with all the information you might need about the house and a guestbook in which previous tenants have left information and recommendations for restaurants and activities in the area.

The entire house and 3-acre garden, with 17 olive trees, is exclusively accessible to guests. Privacy guaranteed.

There are two steps up from the parking area at the entrance to the main door, but otherwise the house is wheelchair accessible.

Truly wonderful place. The house is spacious, very clean, lots of artwork and tons of books. The garden and terrace are amazing, with olive trees and lavander. We had a great stay and hope to come back some time...

We've been to Gordes before, but staying in this very comfortable house with the swiming pool, surrounded by olive trees can not be compared with anything before. Every day was worth every penny! We hope to be back to this villa.

La Garrance is located in a wonderful part of the Luberon Valley near so many beautiful spots. It is also wonderful to stay in the beautiful ambiance of the lovely, well appointed home and the sparkling pool surrounded by olive trees and lavender. It is the perfect place if one wants to have an authentic and immersive trip to Provence.
