Gordes house description
This beautiful and luxurious home awaits you in the Luberon valley just below Gordes in the charming village of Joucas. The views over the lavender fields towards Roussillon are incredible and the Chateau of Joucas stands slightly to one side proudly basked in the sunshine.

Only 5 minutes from the famous village of Gordes and on the edge of the pretty little village of Joucas this stunning home is the perfect holiday place for two families or a big group in July and August. A romantic get away for two couples or a small family the rest of the year. Joucas is a delightful village set on the hillside with many little lanes and old houses. You will find a restaurant/café, baker shop, Mairie, tennis courts in the village and two Relais Chateaux michelin starred restaurants nearby. Hot air ballooning takes place in the fields just below the village so you will be able to admire the colorful balloon as it rises into the sky.

The sunny lounge opens out onto the garden and fabulous wooden terrace where you will find a long teak table and chairs under the mulberry tree for outdoor meals and comfortable armchairs for relaxing in the shade.

The 'Pool House' has two lovely bedrooms with queen-size beds and en suite bathrooms that have washbasins, WC and walk in showers. The spacious sunny lounge and kitchen open out onto a large shady terrace and garden where the pool glistens in the sun. The open plan kitchen is extremely well equipped with even an indoor barbecue. Huge glass doors open completely so that you have a superb view from inside the lounge and kitchen over the gardens and valley. Both bedrooms have TV installed and there are CD's and DVD's.
Teak table and chairs, lounge chairs and coffee table await you on the shaded terrace, the 12 x 6m pool has a jet stream and is heated to 28° all year round. There are many sun loungers to relax in around the pool and gardens and you will find a ping-pong table and hammock in the shadier part of the garden.
This amazing property has been superbly decorated with taste and style and is very private and secluded. You can stroll down into the village of Joucas through the fields below the chateau to buy fresh bread and croissants in the morning. Both houses have separate entrances and the entire property is a haven of tranquility. Twice weekly cleaning, pool and garden maintenance are included in the rental cost.

Perfect holidayGuest comment entered by manager
Hi, Beverly: Just back from London and wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at Mas de la Vallette. It was perfect for the 9 of us. Tebby and I so much enjoyed the privacy of the pool house accommodation--- our little oasis away from the little ones. All of us loved the pool and and various patio areas. And Cossette was a marvelous chef. Thanks so much for finding her for us and for the many other arrangements that you made for us in advance of our arrival. I have given your contact information to a neighbor of Tebby's in London who is interested in a family outing in Provence next summer. I told her that this was the ideal villa. All The Best, Alan

Beautiful house and a wonderful stay
Beautiful house and a wonderful stay
We stayed at the Mas de la Valette for 1 week at the end of May and had our intimate wedding here. When we arrived, I couldn't believe how charming and gorgeous the property was! The photos just do not do it justice! Especially the view to the surrounding countryside towards the other Luberon villages. Both the Grand Maison and Petite Maison were clean, well maintained and decorated with quintessential Provencal decor. The garden was beautiful and bigger than what you can see in the photos. The house also had all the essentials that we needed for our stay, and the little touches like hair dryer in the washrooms made our stay that much better. Our most heartfelt thank-you to Beverly for making us feel so welcome and for all her help before, during and after our stay - answering numerous emails and questions (there were a lot!) about the property, the area, suggestions for things we needed, etc. We couldn't have planned our wedding from another country without her generous help. Cosette cooked for our party of 20, and the food was just delicious! Exactly how we wanted our meal to be. The house was the perfect place for our wedding and we are so glad that we chose to come here. We would not hesitate to recommend the property and Beverly to anyone looking for a holiday home in Provence!

Wonderful spot for a family vacation
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Mas de la Vallette. It is a wonderful spot for a family vacation and all 9 of us had a great time. Your help and support before we arrived and during our visit were really appreciated – you have spoiled me for dealing with anyone else! …and thanks again to Sabri for the lovely wine. I do hope we get back to Provence again, and rest assured, if so, I’ll be in touch with you. In the meantime, I will recommend your site to my friends. Take care. Elizabeth

Perfect Home and holiday
The home was perfect. Even though the property was more house than we had to have, we managed to spread out quite nicely! We were very pleased with the furnishings in the home and it contained everything we needed. Also the grounds are lovely and well maintained. And the view from the back is wonderful. We also liked the location—near enough to groceries, gas, and wine, but still in the country. I can understand why the owners like to spend time there. As good as the home is, you and Cosette were even better. Beverly, I can’t thank you enough for all the time you allocated to us both before and during our stay. Your fine assistance before and during our stay is really what made the trip to Provence special. And Cosette--what a jewel. Her meals were fantastic and a perfect reflection of the region. I’m very pleased we decided to “dine in” more than originally planned. If any of our friends are planning a trip to your area of Provence in the future and ask for recommendations, we will have only one—contact Beverly! Hope to see you again. Please stay in touch.

Great vacation and gorgeous views.
Hi, Beverly, Thanks again for all your help! We had a great vacation and the house was great. As you know, we loved the house. It is well laid out and beautifully situated, and the views toward Rousillon (and Bonnieux) are gorgeous. Even in the hottest weather, the stone walls and floors and the pool (and the fans) helped keep things cool. The kitchens are well-equipped and the bedroom configurations are very flexible, etc. We would recommend that property (and you!!) wholeheartedly to anyone. It's just a lovely place, and we'll have fond memories for many, many years. Many, many thanks again, to you (and to Samantha) for helping make our vacation so much fun.

Perfect setting for a holiday
The pictures do not do it justice. The recommendation from friends was, amazingly, undersold. Mas de la Valette was the perfect setting for a holiday, for a launching pad to the countless wonders of the Luberon and Provence. Waking up in the morning to the sight of a castle next door, or to the red rock of Rousillon across the valley, was magnificent. The grounds are perfect. The amenities first-class. Mas de la Valette was sensational, the neighbouring village of Joucas a treat. We'll go again in a heartbeat.

Lovely, quaint Provence home located outside Joucas. The view from the pool is breathtaking. The area is quiet, peaceful and relaxing. Easy to get to the local markets and wine tasting. Homeowners are lovely people who made us feel exceptionally welcomed. We rented the pool house which is perfect for two people. There is an additional unattached bedroom with full bath which we did not need to use. The pool house is comfortable, nicely appointed and the kitchen has very good appliances for cooking. We appreciated having access to the laundry. We had a wonderful time and would return again.

La petite maison was the perfect place to stay! The house was well stocked, tastefully decorated and offered one of the most fantastic views of the Luberon I have seen. I enjoyed the quiet and charm of Joucas and also the ease of traveling from one village to the next. Evelyne and Sabri are wonderful hosts. The are very kind and helpful and will go out of their way to be sure you are comfortable. Lisa
