Built in honey coloured local stone and only minutes away from all the local shops restaurants and the imposing castle and church, this attractive house enjoys an idyllic position on the quiet hillside overlooking the valley leading down to the Luberon plain, in the heart of Gordes, one of France's prettiest villages.
Built in the 1600's it has been brought up to date with great style, carefully retaining the stone `cave' with arched roof originally used to collect water into the well.
The accommodation includes a long sunny balcony on the ground floor, covered in wisteria with long reaching views. Outside, there is also a small private swimming pool in the pretty sheltered garden with fig, apple and apricot trees.
This area offers much to visit at all times of the year. Visit in spring when the orchards are a sea of pastel blossoms, or escape in autumn when the days are mild and sunny and the grapes are harvested. Play golf at Saumane de Vaucluse, visit the ancient `Village des Bories' or the graceful abbey at Senanque.
