Property description

Le Chemin des Rêves is a wonderful Provençal property located just outside the magnificent perched village of Gordes, officially designated as one of the 'Most Beautiful Villages in France'. The very private house and garden sit on one hectare (2 1/2 acres) in the countryside and are perfectly positioned for easy access to all that Provence has to offer. The house is built of stone from the region and has a southwestern exposure with a stunning view of the Calavon Valley and of the Luberon and Les Alpilles mountains.

Le Chemin des Rêves now has four beautiful and tastefully decorated bedrooms, each with en suite bathroom. All bedrooms were designed with comfort and privacy in mind. Each room is fully equipped with radio/alarm clock, linens, plush towels, body wash, hair dryer and tissues. The master bedroom suite also has a bathtub.
The kitchen is well equipped with a five burner gas cooktop, oven with rotisserie, dishwasher, refrigerator with freezer and microwave. You will find all the pots, pans, food processor, blender, toaster, coffee pot and all utensils required to prepare delicious meals using the products you will find in the local village markets. Market day in Gordes is Tuesday morning and the definitely not-to-be-missed farmer's market in Coustellet is on Sunday morning. The adjacent utility room has a washer, dryer and second refrigerator with freezer.

The dining room is furnished with beautiful oak furniture and the table can be expanded to seat 8-10 people comfortably. You will find all necessary linens available for your use.

The living room, with it's massive stone fireplace and high ceilings with Provençal beams, is furnished with beautiful leather couches and chair. It also offers a truly beautiful view of the mountains and the valley.

The den/library is equipped with HDTV with SkyTV service, DVD player, CD player/radio, I-Pod player, WiFi service and copier/fax/printer. There is a vast collection of CD's and DVD's for your entertainment. In addition, the library is stocked with many books and magazines for your enjoyment.

Our very private swimming pool is 11 x 5 meters and is a wonderful place for family fun or swimming laps. There are 8 comfortable pool loungers where you can relax after a dip in the pool and read or just enjoy a nap.

In the pool house you will discover a BBQ with rotisserie (wood is provided), a small refrigerator, sink and comfortable furniture for relaxing. This is a wonderful place to enjoy a meal cooked on the BBQ and watch a beautiful Provençal sunset.

At the rear of the house you will find the herb garden and a stone picnic table where you can enjoy leisurely meals in the shade of the oak trees.

Relaxing on the terrace is a great place to put your feet up and enjoy a glass of local rosé after a day of exploring the many villages, markets, restaurants, wineries, historical sites and all that Provence has to offer.

Planted in the garden are 70+ olive trees, 300+ lavender plants, many varieties of flowers, bushes and native trees which add a lovely dimension of color to the landscape. As you walk around the garden you will enjoy the aromas of Provence...wild thyme,rosemary and savory. While on your way through the gardens you will also discover an ancient stone borie, which is a fine example of the bories that dot the landscape in this area. If you like, you can visit the Village of the Bories which is just up the road from Le Chemin des Rêves.

We invite you to experience Le Chemin des Rêves and discover the perfect location for your dream vacation. The walled city of Avignon is just a 30 minute drive; the beautiful village of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, which is surrounded by the vines of some of the premier wine makers in the world, is only a 40 minute drive from the property. In an hour or less you can be in the Camargue or in Arles, visit the Pont-du-Gard or the Roman theater in Orange, go to Aix-en-Provence or visit the ancient city of Marseille. Your choices are unlimited! Let your curiosity lead you toward wonderful discoveries: Roman ruins, historic perched villages, village markets, outdoor concerts, fabulous restaurants, castles, wineries and much, much more. Just choose a road to follow and discover something new everyday.
