Gordes farmhouse description
The ultimate provincial farmhouse, modern amenities but loads of character.
Located in the middle of the apple orchards at the foot of the National Park of the Luberon, on two private acres behind a large electronically controlled gate, this house originates in the early 1800's, but has been completely brought to 21st century modern standards. Tastefully decorator finished in provence blue and cream colors
Two master suites with two shower bathrooms in one, and a separate bath shower in the other. Two other large bedrooms, each with shower/toilet en suite.
Beds are 200 and 220 cm much larger (and more comfortable)than standard 180cm french beds. Loads of hot water and pressure for showers.
There is a large fully equipped laundry area with hot air dryer not commonly found here.
Ultra modern german kitchen with all appliance and fully equipped for gourmet cooking.
Three salons, two with fireplaces, the third glassed onto the garden and outdoor dining.
Live outdoors in a huge covered Au Vent exterior room with fireplace, Weber gas barbecue, dishwasher, sink, seating for 6-10, and dining table. Second dining table under the wisteria, and third shaded area for up to 10, under a massive 80 year old plane tree, overlooking the pool.
10 by 5 meter heated grey/blue pool with lounges and parasols.
At the front there is an enormous flat 2000 meter lawn, equipped for croquet and with adirondack seating for sunsets.
All windows have fitted fly screens, an unusual feature in Provence.
This is the house to enjoy total western style comfort while exploring the wonders and delights of Provence. Private and away from main roads, yet 5 minutes to the perched villages of the Luberon including Gordes, Menerbes, Roussilion and Bonnieux. Moments from the regionally produced foods in the local provencal markets in each town, a different day of the week. Five minutes from antique hunting in Isle sur la Sorgue, 20 minutes to the Palais des Papes in Avignon, and 30 minutes to Chateauneuf de Pape.
The area is ideal for hiking, biking and touring, wine tasting, and excellent provencal dining.
Warning: in August , Air Conditioning is French country style. (You open the windows and shutters at night to catch the cool air, and close them in the day to keep the house comfortable).
The pricing is firm,and not negotiable.
This house is one of the top few quality restorations in the Luberon Valley, and will please the most demanding of visitors. It has been our private home for the last 5 years, as we have lived the dream in Provence.
It is now available so that others can share a bit of the experience.

Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: We retired to Provence to escape the hustle of US business. Here we have learned French, learned how to cook, and learned how to find great local wines and wineries. We decorated our house with local furniture and art works to give it the real provencal feel.
