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.
