Gargas Holiday Homes

Make a holiday rental home or villa in Gargas, France your home away from home.

Gargas, France

Not to be confused with Gargas in the Haute-Garonne department of France, Gargas in the Vaucluse department is a comune that has expanded rapidly in recent years, and is now a relatively popular option for those seeking a holiday rental base in the heart of the Provence. Many buildings in the area date back to the Middle Ages, and the village certainly has an ‘old world’ feel about it – though it is the earth-coloured pigment ochre for which Gargas is most famous, and visitors can even visit the old quarries during their stay.

Things to do in Gargas, France

Gargas has grown in size over the last 10-15 years, and now encompasses a number of smaller hamlets in the area. The village is best known for its still-operational ochre quarries – making it the only village of this type in the Vaucluse department. Some of the these quarries can be visited by the general public, though it is advised to consult the local tourist information office beforehand to check exactly which ones offer this facility. Remember not to wear white clothes during your tour – the reddish-brown pigment can get everywhere!

Gargas has several old buildings and historical sites around its picturesque centre, the highlight of which is the 17th century church. The comune also has a respectable selection of amenities, and a pleasant full day can be spent wandering the narrow streets and shopping in the local stores. After a day or two you will likely want to get out into the surrounding countryside, and this unspoilt part of the Luberon offers many days of hiking, walking, horse riding, fishing and cycling opportunities.

Further afield, Cavaillon (33km) is famous for its markets, and the best place to visit to pick up fresh local produce. The local speciality is melon, which will almost certainly be the freshest and juiciest you have ever tried!

Truly exceeds the description & photographs, as not only is the exterior of the house (the pool, the seating area & the terrace) gorgeous, the interior is so well designed with superb taste & fantastic modern fixtures & fittings. We have never visited the Luberon region before, but I think this has now become my new favourite part of Southern France; amazing views, wonderful hillside towns - simply beautiful. If you're looking for the definition of peace & quiet and need somewhere to relax & recharge - Villa Les Fauquieres is the perfect property for you! Thanks to Faiza & Pierre for their hospitality & their ease of communication! We will be back!!

From the moment we were in touch with the owner, Isabelle, we knew that we were in for a great stay. All details were arranged with minimum fuss and we had the privilege of being the very first guests, with a warm Provençal welcome. La Farigoule is a beautiful home, with a great pool and outside eating spaces - very comfortable . The location is terrific, with lots of places to see and villages to visit. The town of Apt is a 5 minute drive away and has a terrific market on Saturday mornings - great atmosphere! Bonnieux, Saignon, Lourmarin and lots of other villages are just a short drive away. Isabelle is friendly and discreet, and as she was doing some work on the property's garden over the weekend, we had the opportunity to meet her to get some local tips and suggestions! Fantastic holiday, highly recommended and we can't wait to return! Thanks Isabelle!
