La maison des rochers

Three bedroom village house partially carved from the cliffs.

Provence/France Villa 5

A restored 17th Century village house seemingly carved from the cliffs of Gordes, beautifully offset by the cream plaster work and French Tavel stone used throughout. With magnificent views of the Luberon Mountains from every window and each of its many terraces, this is an ideal base from which to stroll to the shops and restaurants.

The property sits on three levels with two terraces to the east side of the house, one vaulted with a large wrought iron table and chairs ideal for evening drinks or dinner. There is a third on the west side with teak tables and chairs leading down to a shaded seating area, the 4m x 8m swimming pool and compact private shaded garden. Gordes is a striking hilltop village carved out of the rocks, once a resistance stronghold in the Second World War. Now the village is popular with visitors year round, as it has a charming array of shops, art galleries and restaurants, teamed with spectacular views from the village walls.

This property is not suitable for people with walking difficulties. Due to the nature of the property there are several drops around the property. Young children need to be supervised.
