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.

Things to do on holiday to Gordes, France

This area is famous for its dry stone bories, and there are some stunning examples in and around Gordes. People travel to Gordes from miles around to explore the Village de Bories which lies just outside the village. 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. The Pol Para Museum is open all year, displaying some of the finest works by the Flemish artist.

There are some fantastic walking and mountain biking trails emanating in every direction from Gordes. Travelling by foot is one of best ways to get to know the area, and there are well marked trails through the forests and hills that surround Gordes. One of the best is the 8km loop trail into the valley below Gordes, where the Abbey de Senanque hides. The Abbey is almost an un-missable attraction when you travel to Gordes, and the honey, liqueurs and lavender products produced by the resident monks are extraordinarily good.

Places to visit on holiday to Gordes, France

The nearby village of Menerbes is a fantastic destination for anyone with an interest in history. The two ancient dolmen sites around the village are mystical and exceedingly worth visiting. There are also a huge variety of mountain biking trails in the Menerbes countryside.

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.

                                                            A lovely secluded getaway with fantastic views.

                                                            We had two wonderful weeks staying in La Sariette. It is a superbly equipped property with everything you could possibly need provided. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners Sally-Ann and Scott and we were warmly welcomed. We spent lovely evenings on the patio watching the sun go down over the hills and all we could hear were the bees buzzing in the lavender and song birds singing in the trees. In order to achieve this tranquility, it is necessary to negotiate the unsurfaced road up to the property, but it didn't prove to be a problem. The property is ideally situated so that all the sights of the Luberon are within easy reach and we found the village of Murs to be charming. Our favourite visit was to Simiane La Rotonde which is a beautiful perched village surrounded by lavender fields and hardly any tourists to be seen! Thank you Sally-Ann, Scott and your lovely family and we hope to visit you all again.

                                                            This was our second stay - this time in La Farigoule as we had family with us. The gites are beautifully prepared and very comfortable. We hope to return next year and in many years to come. Thank you Scott and Sally for giving us such a lovely holiday again.

                                                            There were 16 of us all ages arriving from Wisconsin and Minnesota..none of us knew what to expect only hoped that our stay could be half as good as other reviews! We played tennis--even at night,rode bikes through the country side of lavender, poppies and rolled bales of hay. Ate on patios, cooked fabulous meals,went to markets, sang, laughed, enjoyed all kinds of beverages, and played Marco Polo in the refreshing pool. Our welcome by Herve was delightful and he was always available to assist in some minor problems. It was perfect!!!! Thank you
