La Vigne, Gordes, Provence

Sleeps 8

€7,500 - €10,000 per week

Gordes is perhaps the most famous of the Luberon’s medieval hilltop villages, towering over the valley as you drive along. La Vigne can be seen as you approach the village from below as it is an original village house built into the side of the cliff. A no through road leads up to the house with an open parking area in front and double doors facing you. You enter into the large, beamed sitting room which has a really good sized terrace running along the side. The separate dining room also opens onto this terrace. The kitchen is accessed through an arch off these rooms and is well equipped with a small bar area where you can perch and have a glass of wine while chatting away to the cook.

The bedrooms are on the two floors below and are accessed by a large circular stone staircase. These are all surprisingly spacious as are the bathrooms. The bottom bedroom has separate access out onto the little lane that runs alongside the house at ground level. The decoration throughout is neutral, complimenting the beautiful paintings and artwork which have been chosen by the London-based art gallery owners.

The pool and summer terrace with its extremely well equipped summer kitchen (fridge, all plates, cutlery, glasses etc – no need to run backwards and forwards to the house) and barbecue is accessed across a little bridge from the sitting room.  Here there is an open-fronted dining area with dining table, sitting area and table football plus WC and an outside shower.  Further shade is provided by an ancient olive tree beside the heated pool and an astro-turfed area for sunbathing below.

What Sarah thinks:

“I have visited this house several times. The views are amazing – you simply can’t imagine the skill that was employed to build this large and spacious house into the side of the cliff and a pool as well! Not one for anyone who finds stairs a challenge, or wanting to kick a football, but a fantastic base from which to explore this area”.
