Absolute tranquillity, stunning panoramic view onto the village and the Luberon Valley.

The grounds cover one hectare of enclosed gardens with shaded terraces, local vegetation, grassy patches, a 12x6 fenced swimming-pool and a playground area for young children. The house is 250m2, with large bright rooms and simple but stylish furniture.

There is also an outdoor shaded summer kitchen with BBQ facilities and a long table to sit you all.

Gordes is part of "The Most Beautiful Villages" association. In the village, you'll find local food shops and many cafes and restaurants. Tuesdays are market days,with local grocers and tipical provencal goods. Supermarkets and commercial centres are a short drive away.
From Gordes, you can easily access all other villages and points of interest of the Provence region, starting from the magnificent Abbaye de Senanque accessible even by foot from the house.

Gordes is located 20 minutes away from the A6 motorway, 45 min from Avignon train station, 1h from Marseille International Airport.

Guest access

How to find the property: The property is called "Les Truffiers" located on Chemin Les Dilais. Some Satnav don't show the lane so you might have to follow our directions:
When approaching the village, after climbing the hill, you pass the look-out of the village and keep going towards the village. Soon after, turn on the left road "Venasque-Abbaye de Senanque" (the right turn will get you to the village centre). After 500m or so, you will officially exit the village (a sign with Gordes crossed in red). A few meters later, there is a dead-end lane on your left with "Les Dilais" mentioned. Take that lane, you will soon be driving between narrow stone walls. Les Truffiers is located on the right (just after the property called Le Grenier), with a blue wooden gate.

Interaction with guests

Our house in Gordes is a holiday place so we won't be able to meet you there, but our housekeeper, Guillaume, lives nearby and comes and checks on the house all year long. He's the one who will show you around, answer any question and be available any time to help you in case of problem. You can contact him on +(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). In case of major problem, please contact us via airbnb.

Other things to note

In the house at your arrival, you will find a guidebook with all the information you need to find your way around the house. Also, there will be information about our favourite places, activities, shopping places, and every address you might need during your stay. You might want to add your favourite places too for guests coming after you!

House Rules
Not suitable for pets

Of course we expect you to behave like you would like other people to behave in your own house! We've set up the house in a simple and easy way to maintain as we have small children and we want them to enjoy their holiday time as much as we do. But we have raised our children with the concept of taking care of things, so it's not all "Ikea style" and it is decorated to suit adults taste. So please no wet swimming costumes on sofas, cigarettes buts in the swimming-pool or chocolate biscuits in the bedrooms...

We loved our stay in Gordes. The house is very spacious and has everything you need. It is the perfect location for families as it had lots of room, and a fabulous swimming pool. The location is very quiet and private and it is only a short walk into the town of Gordes. We loved the kitchen, it has a big centre bench with stools - a very social setting. A choice of great outdoor areas depending on the weather/sun. We would totally recommend this house.

Ultimate relaxing holiday villa in Provence. We so enjoyed our time at Jeanne's beautiful property, and the room configurations really suited a group with lots of children at different ages. And of course the fenced pool is fantastic! It's under 10 minutes walk into Gordes (once you find the cut through lane) but the tranquility of the property is wonderful.

If you're looking for a rustic, quiet retreat in an area with lots of day trips, then we would highly recommend this home. It's great for 2-3 families and could make for a good vacation. Jeanne is very nice, as well.

We had a great time in this beautiful, large villa. Gordes is very picturesque but slightly small, however there are nearby towns that offer plenty too! Jeanne the host was so helpful and accommodating, would highly recommend!

We have just returned from an absolutely wonderful week in Jeanne's villa in Gordes, sadly a week wasn't long enough. The villa and pool are amazing and Gordes is beautiful. The added bonus of great cycling made the holiday even better ... fingers crossed we will return for 2 weeks next year!

Fantastic location and the house was even better than we imagined. The views are wonderful throughout the day -- from sunrise hitting the hills to sunset views. Going to Gordes is an easy walk and the Tueaday market a highlight. There are several bakeries and small markets that will have most everything you need. The house is a good layout for families with plenty of room to spread out and a clean pool to play or float in. The house stays cool on hot days. Well-equipped kitchen. We enjoyed the hiking trails taking daily trips to the end of the road or hiking to the abbey. The caretaker was helpful and easy to get in touch with.

I'm a French woman in my thirties, married with an Italian, living in England with our 4 young children. We like sun, good food, time with our friends and travels. This is why a few years ago we have decided to buy our house in Gordes. Gordes is our little piece of paradise, our ever shining resting place, where children can play all day outside blessed by the sun, the sound of birds and the smell of rosemary. In a word, our reward to us all ! We even decided to have a break from our hectic city lives last year and spent 6 months living in Gordes, time to give birth to our younger daughter (thus my profile photo!).
