Perfection in Provence
Jean and Eric are the perfect hosts...from the welcoming smile, the bottle of wine and chocolates to the cooled drinks in the fridge and the delicious homemade chocolate cake. They are friendly and always on hand, but aren't invasive. The property is gorgeous and the land around the tower is large and beautiful. It is close enough to walk into town but far enough away to avoid the tourists. It's close to drive to other towns and local markets. The kitchen is well-equipped and there are condiments on hand. The pool area is lovely and private, complete with sun beds, lilos and noodles to float around on. If you need to wash clothes, you have access to Jean and Eric's washing machine. The balcony is a great place for breakfast.
Things to consider...the bathroom is as it is on the webpage - bath/shower no curtain or a hook on which to hang the shower rose. I found this a bit awkward. The bedroom is only accessible from outside. There is an upstairs toilet from the bedroom, but it is only accessible via a precarious spiral staircase (although my husband didn't share my difficulty with it). This, I also found awkward. Despite the awkwardness of these two aspects, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. If you're looking for a place where you can leave the car, spend a day floating around the pool in the sun and eating out, this is it. Equally, if you want a base for exploring Provence, this is the perfect place to stay.
Eric and Jean were wonderful owners who created a seamless experience. Property was spotlessly clean and very private. We hope to go back some day!
Dear Ashley and Adam,

See you again soon !
Eric et Jean
Just divine in all aspects
Perfect peace & quiet
Gorgeous place for a Provence holiday
Tour des Beaumes provides beautiful accommodation that's a great balance of peaceful and lively. The tower itself provides a tranquil base but is close enough to Gordes to give you lots to see and do (and eat).
Eric and Jean are wonderful hosts, friendly and helpful but never intrusive. The accommodation is kept immaculately clean and we would recommend a stay to anyone visiting the area.
Dear Angela and Steve,
Thank you so much for your nice comment !
We really enjoy welcoming you and knowing you left happy with nice memories og Gordes
is the best thing for us !
We hope to have the great pleasure to welcome you again at the Tour des Beaumes !
All the best from Provence
Eric and Jean
Romantic, Special, Unic, Clean, Superb !
Everything about the holiday exceeded our expectations.
We received a very warm greeting from Eric and Jean which extended throughout our stay.
They really have mastered the art of being helpful without being intrusive.
The tower is tastefully decorated and a lot of thought has gone in to the finishing touches which helped to make the holiday so special.
"La Tour des Beaumes" is in such a beautiful and relaxing environment and surrounded by small villages, however we became so comfortable that some days it was incredibly difficult to muster up enough enthusiasm to leave the pool area!!
Gordes is a beautiful town with lots of character but we did find eating out very expensive.
We have had a few holidays in the South of France but nothing has come close to the holiday in the tower, we would love to go back but are never organised enough to book that far in advance!
We will now make the reservation earlier to be sure to get this place.
It is really a dream for us !
See you next year
