Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Gordes, France your home away from home

The village of Gordes is a stunningly attractive stone village perched high on the southern end of the Plateau de Vaucluse. The whole village, built from local stone, glows golden in the morning sun, which is a view only matched by the views over the forests of Luberon afforded by a Gordes villa rental. It is immediately obvious upon arrival why Gordes is a member of the 141 villages rated as the Most Beautiful Villages in France.

The village is an ancient settlement, whose dry stone houses, barns and walls have stood the test of time magnificently. There are also a great variety of Gallo-Roman artefacts in and around Gordes, from columns to baths, and even tombs carved into the bare rock of the Plateau de Vaucluse.

There is plenty of culture to enjoy when you travel to Gordes too. The weekly market which arrives in Gordes every Tuesday, is an excellent place in which to buy the best of local delicacies, and the wines of the Cotes de Ventoux should defiantly not be ignored. The Fete de Vin in July is the finest time to discover local wines, and during July and August, there are numerous jazz, theatres and classical music events.

Weather in Gordes, France

Due to its enchanting appearance, Gordes does attract large tourist crowds during the summer. However, these have largely dispersed by evening, leaving you to enjoy the village to yourself. During July and August, daily temperatures routinely peak in the mid-30’s (˚C), with the warm weather lasting long into the evening, perfect for evening strolls or eating your evening meal overlooking the countryside. Spring and Autumn are some of the best times to take a self catering Gordes holiday rental villa, as the crowds have gone, yet you can still expect daily temperatures around 30˚C. Even in the depths of winter, temperatures usually peak at around 15˚C.

Travel to Gordes, France

The tiny Avignon Airport (AVN) is just 40 minutes from a holiday rental property in Gordes. However, there are only two scheduled routes from Southampton (SOU) and Exeter (EXE) airports, (both provided by Flybe), so a more realistic option for many will be to get a flight to Marseille (MRS), which can be reached within an hour.

The first week we had a family reunion and the second a reunion with friends and their children. The house is large and beautifully decorated. Every bedroom as everything you need. There is a huge kitchen/dining area perfect for large gatherings and we spent many evenings sitting on the terrace overlooking the pool. The pool area is perfect with an adjoining area for BBQs and ping pong which provided much great entertainment. Danielle who manages the property lives across the street and couldn't have been more delightful and helpful - tears were shed when we had to say goodbye! The house is situated on a quiet street in the heart of the beautiful village of Goult - walking distance to everything you need in the village. We made several trips to neighboring villages to explore the markets, however, Goult was by far our favorite village! It was a truly magical vacation and we hope very much to return one day. Definitely giving this property and it's management team 5 stars!

                                                                                                      We stayed in 'la maison du four' for the whole of November. We often spend a month in the autumn in the south of France and this was the best property we have rented. The house is full of character and beautifully furnished, in a way which is appropriate to the environment, but also very comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need, even for a long stay like ours. The terrace enjoyed several hours of sun even at this time of year and the view over the Luberon landscape was lovely. The views from the house windows down over the roofs towards the château were also charming. We enjoyed some lovely evenings in front of a roaring fire in the lounge as well. The location is ideal - a short walk to the village centre which has everything you need, especially the friendly Café de la Poste, which really is the hub of village life. Another short walk takes you up to the windmill, from where there are spectacular views over the surrounding countryside and many footpaths leading off through the forested hills. The village of Goult is perfect for an autumn stay. It is a real village, rather than a tourist trap, but is still one of the most beautiful in the area. The house is also perfectly situated for visiting the area which is absolutely spectacular, particularly with the wonderful autumn colours everywhere. There are many restaurants in the area which are still open at this time of year, including the Carillon in the village, as well as a couple down in the valley at nearby Lumières. You really could not imagine a better place for an autumn stay in the south of France!
