                                                              Even better than the photos! Very quiet, clean, plenty of seating inside and out, well equipped kitchen and a helpful owner. Vincent was available to help when needed but not intrusive. Great situation as able to walk to the bakers each morning. Many restaurants nearby with excellent food plus supermarkets & farmers markets for self catering. Just to remind people that they do need to take towels & bedding - quite heavy if you are flying! We would certainly recommend this to friends & family.

                                                              Stunning Home Tucked Away in the Heart of Gordes

                                                              We stayed here with our small family and 2 other couples a total of 8 adults and 2 infants and it was absolutely wonderful. The home is located just off the main road with views over looking the valley and vistas of Bonneiux. The location is sublime. The city centre of Gordes is a mere 8-10 minutes away and we were a stone throw away from the gorgeous sunflower fields and lavender! We loved dining here in the cool evenings with the outdoor fire pit on. It was a wonderful experience with the open concept of the kitchen and living room leading to the terrace outside. Breakfast was also a delight with the morning rays hitting the sun and pool. The rooms were perfect for our family and the beds new and comfortable. We also really enjoyed all the Italian loungers and tables. Quality products and were very impressed. The inside of the home was also tastefully done! We were thoroughly impressed! Thank you for the use of the bicycles we really appreciated it. We hope to be back again. Thank you for helping create wonderful memories of our time in Provence. PS. We did the hike behind the house and it was as you said, the ENTIRE view of the valley! What a beautiful secret hidden spot to see the entire beauty of Provence.

                                                              Excellent place - location and hospitality

                                                              Our first visit to this part of France. Ideal location for sightseeing this area. The gites were of a very high standard and very clean. We were given a warm welcome by Sandrine and Philippe . The pool area was superb and an early evening drink shared with the occupants of the other gite made for an entertaining evening with our lack of French and their lack of English!! Anglo French relations were bonded that evening - the children also enjoyed the rugby! ! Would highly recommend this property to a couple or a family. The location has been made even easier to reach by the Eurostar going to Avignon.
