With a private walking path leading to the shops and restaurants of Gordes - only 700 meters - and the peace and tranquility of a quiet countryside locale, this house has it all.

Enjoy the day touring the highlights of Provence, then return to Gordes for a glass of wine by the pool. Soak in the fantastic view before heading off to dinner on foot.

The interiors here have recently been renovated to a high standard in quality - The ground floor offers open living space in harmony with the outdoor terraces, for a fluid alignment between living indoors and out.

Le Repaire de Gordes was fantastic. No complaints at all. Truly a special place. We loved the privacy combined with the easy walk into Gordes.
The house, especially the kitchen was great. We were at the market and the poissoneire in Coustelet and were amazed at the quality of the produce, fruit, fish, etc.
We were surprised at the amount of tourists (like us!) in Gordes during all parts of the day. Some of the other mountain towns like Bonnieux and Lourmarin were less crowded, therefore more enjoyable.

Le Repaire receives five stars from us… More if it was possible!

I would, and have already recommended “Only Provence” to several people.

One additional thing: We had trouble finding the correct sizes of garbage bags for the different containers in the house when were were at the marche in Coustelet. We did not know what size to buy.

We will be back to you for our next trip to the Luberon valley.

House location is excellent – quiet yet close to centre. Quality of the villa was very high

Areas for improvement:
The pool is only waist deep – we were surprised and disappointed by this.. you cant actually swim in it!
Note from Only Provence: The pool depth is 1m, which allows for safe play for children, and easy swimming for young ones as well. It does cause less room for adult guests to swim laps.

Would you recommend Le Repaire de Gordes and Only Provence?
yes, absolutely, The villa is lovely, the only provence team are excellent, and the portfolio of villas top quality

What star rating would you give Le Repaire de Gordes? 4
What star rating would you give Only Provence? 5

The path to the village centre is rough and stony – you could perhaps point that out.. flat shoes and a torch needed
Gordes has an excellent choice of bars and restaurants but the shops mean you can also stay in and cook too – its ideal

What did you like about your experience?
Almost everything. Booking the house was easy and convenient. People at Only Provence gave valuable information and were pretty fast to reply.
The house was even better than described. It was perfectly clean, in a very good condition and only 5 min walk to the village.
