Gordes Townhouse

Beautifully restored 4 bedroom village house with pool and wonderful views, right in the center of Gordes, one of the most beautiful villages of France.

Provence/France Villa 8

This superbly restored, dry stone, three story village house in Provence is nestled up against the cliff side of Gordes and faces directly out to the Luberon valley. In a landscape boasting every shade of green, guests of Vigne Vierge will be pampered by the luxury comforts and resplendent country style of this villa. In a region made famous by author Peter Mayle, many of the area’s famous hilltop villages are only a short drive away from the site, with countless vineyards and specialty restaurants also close by.

The grounds at Vigne Vierge feature a pristine swimming pool with sun loungers and umbrella. Off the pool deck, you can enjoy some alfresco dining on the covered terrace. The pool house includes a kitchen. In the main house, you will find W-Fi access, a home entertainment system with satellite TV, as well as foosball and ping pong tables. Oenophiles will have a field day in the wine cellar. Your reservation includes housekeeping and an on-call concierge.

This original home has been restored and furnished with immense care to detail. The large, exposed wooden beams in juxtaposition with the stone archways and stairways are magnificent reminders of a bygone era. The plush living room centered around the fireplace is a cozy spot for a good book or to share a cocktail. The formal dining area under the chandelier is a grand spot to share any special announcements or news. Take advantage of the optional personal chef and pre-stocking options for the ultimate in relaxation.

Five elegant bedrooms and seven washrooms comfortably accommodate up to ten guests. All of the bedrooms include private bathrooms and air conditioning. One of the bedrooms provides direct access to the well manicured garden. The decor of each bedroom ranges from modern to antique.

For art lovers, Vigne Vierge is a property you must visit. The two minute walk to the village of Gordes includes a stroll through cobblestone streets and the potential for discovering an outstanding original painting almost wherever you look. For a truly memorable excursion, be sure to charter a boat across the Venice-like canals of nearby Isle Sur La Sorgue. Golf lovers will also be happy to know that they are located only a few minutes from the beautiful eighteen hole course at Provence Country Club.
