Gordes chateau / country house description

'Les Plaines'. A beautifully decorated and spacious country family home ideally situated on the outskirts of the medieval village of Murs (500 metres altitude) with breathtaking views and a fabulous secluded Heated Pool. Only eight kilometers from the famous perched village of Gordes and 30 kilometers from Sault 'lavender country' in the heart of the Luberon National Park.

The South facing terrace dominates the valley with an unique view over the Grand and Petit Luberon Hills as well as the Falaise de Lioux and the red ochre hills of Roussillon. This incredible view will allow you many memorable relaxing moments especially as the sun sets in the evening. This property is a haven of peace for those who wish to relax, paint, read or go for long walks through the beautiful unspoilt countryside (in particular around the Moulins de la Véroncle). A 5 minute stroll into the village to admire the view on the other side of the valley and buy fresh bread and croissants for breakfast

A mere hour drive away and you can visit: the Palais des Papes, le Pont d'Avignon or be fascinated by the festival of Avignon in July with its clowns and actors. Explore the Port of Marseille and its calanques, go horseriding in the Camargue and admire the bulls and pink flamingos.

The famous perched villages of Gordes, Roussillon 'the red ochre', Lacoste and the Marquis de Sade's Chateau, Bonnieux and Oppede le Vieux are all nearby and St Remy and Les Baux are within 30 minutes drive. The fountain of Vaucluse and its seven sorgues and the Abbaye de Senanque are within 10 minutes' drive and Le Mont Ventoux (1912 metres altitude) is within 45 minutes' drive.

Every day of the week there is a provencal market to visit where one can taste the olives and buy fresh fruit and vegetables. Not forgetting the excellent restaurants and local wine cellars, in an afternoon you can sample wines varying from Gigondas, Chateauneuf de Pape and Vacqueras to Cotes de Ventoux and Provence.

This light and airy 250 square-meter property, recently renovated and tastefully decorated, a mixture of antique and modern styles, is situated in 7000 square-meters of woodland and large stone terraces. The main south facing terrace is accessible from the lounge, dining room and two bedrooms by double French doors. Have lunch or dinner under the shady tonnelle on the large teak table whilst contemplating the view.

Stone steps lead to a lower terrace cut in the rock where the protected and secluded ten-by-five-meter heated swimming pool is nestled. The swimming pool has a salt water system and the surrounds are equipped with sun loungers,parasols and another shady tonnelle.

Step out from the fully equipped kitchen into a pretty flowered shady kitchen garden for breakfast or coffee or simply relax in the 60 square-meter sunny, comfortable lounge with its high ceilings by the impressive old stone fireplace near the television and library corner.

The fully equipped modern kitchen has a six-burner cook-top and oven with rotisserie, microwave, dishwasher, fridge and freezer. There are numerous pretty dishes, pots and pans and glass ware to use. There is a washing machine and dryer next to the kitchen.

The adjacent sunny dining room area has a long dining table and chairs to seat 10 persons. Two French doors open out onto the southern terrace and view.

The master bedroom has French doors and windows opening out onto the terrace there is a queen size bed, armoire and little armchairs and an ensuite bathroom with bath, shower, double basins and WC.

Further along you will find a twin-bedded (90-centimeter) room suitable for children and a light airy queen-bedded room with access, via French doors, to the terrace. Adjacent to these bedrooms is a second bathroom with double basins, bath and shower and water closet.

On the northern side of the house there are two very pretty twin-bedded (90-centimeter) rooms, between these rooms is a third bathroom with bath, shower, water closet and hand basins. All the bedrooms have cupboards, bedside tables and lamps. There is also a separate water closet.

There is also a wifi installation for those who still like to keep in contact with the rest of the world even on holiday.
