An ideal, authentic villa
We spent one week in this charming house and couldn't have been more delighted with everything. The house is very comfortable and appropriate to the area with a spectacular view from the house and pool. The location is absolutely ideal as you are just at the edge of the village's end, so in a quiet, peaceful part of Gordes, with an easy and magnificent walk to this stunning village and all its' amenities. We drove to all the surrounding villages, park, and there is much to see - we were ideally situated. The owner, Alban, and his sweet family, live next door and he could not have been more gracious, doing everything possible to insure a lovely stay for us. I speak French, so language wasn't an issue for me, but my husband doesn't, and was able to communicate well in english with him. We feel so lucky to have happened upon this property on VRBO, an official Gite of France, and found it to be quite reasonably priced for such a situation. We hope to return and spend even more time touring, eating, swimming, exploring and walking in the region. I haven't the slightest complaint and would recommend this property to families as well, as it is an ideal spot for children to enjoy also. A more warmhearted and gracious landlord would be hard to find.
Beautiful outdoor spaces and view; interior space has a few drawbacks
This place is great for the location and the lovely outdoor spaces. Nice pool and spectacular view from the pool. 5 stars for the outdoor spaces and view. The interior is a bit dark and the upstairs decor didn't match the look and feel of such a beautiful locale. Would've been nice to have air conditioning and a bathroom upstairs. The second bedroom is in a different building, with a toilet but no sink and no key to lock this building. 2.5 stars for the interior. English was not spoken upon arrival, so if you don't speak french I advise you confirm check out time and any logistics via email, as alban is very responsive. I'd like to give this place overall 3.5.
Charming Country Cottage
We very much enjoyed our stay in Alban Gollier's stone gite in Gordes. He was a delightful host and if we needed anything he was right next door. The vista from the patio and pool are magnificent. Unfortunately the weather was not nice enough for us to use the beautiful pool. We loved the proximity to Gordes. The only drawback was the bedroom was upstairs and the bathroom was downstairs but we got used to it so it was really no problem. We would certainly recommend this charming stone gite in the country for your stay in Provence.
Beautiful French cottage in a wonderful location
The cottage was lovely, the surroundings just gorgeous even in the middle of winter ...lovely gentle walk into the village. Almost everything you need. Our French was not existent but we were met in the village and driven to the cottage... Instructions in hand language were great.. One small negative that didn't over shadow was the bath towels needed to be washed before use and not enough for the 6 of us .. So we had to ask for more and fresh towels other than that small issue we so loved our stay there..
hello Ngaire.....We are glad you appreciated your stay in the cottage and hope to welcome you during your next vacation
Nonetheless we regret the error in the cleaning lady who did not know the number of people al arrival: happily living next we could quickly provide you missing towels
hope to see you and welcome back in Australia
alban Grollier.....Nous sommes ravis que vous ayez apprecié votre sejour dans le gite et espérons vous acceuillir lors de vos prochaines vacances
Neammoins nous regrettons l erreur de la femme de menage qui ne connaissait pas le nombre de personnes a l arrivée :heureusement habitant a coté nous avons pu vous fournir rapidement les serviettes manquantes
au plaisir de vous revoir et bon retour en Australie
Great place in a beautiful location.
We really enjoyed our stay at that place. It is very charming house that has everything you may need. Kitchen was fully equipped and there was outdoor grill so it was easy to make some delicious food. the location is perfect it's right next to Gordes, 10 minutes walk from the town, right on top of the hill in a very peaceful location. The owner was very nice and helpful, he met us by the castle in Gordes and showed us the way to the place. Unforgettable experience, definitely recommend that place.
We are very pleased with this latest assessment of the 2015 season hoping to see you again the next year for your complete satisfaction
Séjour à la hauteur de nos attentes
Nous avons passé 15 jours délicieux, ce mois d'Août, chez Alban.
Son accueil tout sympathique, ses petites attentions...
La vue depuis la location est fabuleuse. Il ne nous a rien manqué.
Cela fera partie de mes bonnes adresses.
