Why Beatrice Herman and Gabrielle de Montmollin chose Gordes
La Garance is a family home. Our mother fell in love with Provence when she came here with friends so she bought a parcel of land and built her dream house in 1979. She named it after a plant which grows wild in the garden.`

PERFECT BASE FOR EXPLORING PROVENCE
My family and I spent 2 nights at this wonderful house and loved it! Having rented in excess of 40 houses/apartments over the years, we recognize a great place when we find it. We were very sorry to not have found La Garance earlier, as we spent 2 weeks in the area in May, and regret not having stayed in this property. It is a lovely home, perfectly decorated and stocked with everything one needs to make your stay perfect. As holiday rentals go, this one will stand out as one of the best, and we hope to return next year for a much longer stay. It is perfectly situated to allow exploration of Provence, and perfectly appointed for just enjoying the pool and the house itself.
Beautiful region - Excellent stay
Long overdue review..I am so sorry...
We (family of 5) spent 2 weeks in this beautiful and very comfortable house. Excellent location, close to many places/ villages to visit. Lovely home, 3 bedrooms included a big parental suite with a bathroom. Big kitchen with dining room and huge living room. Each room is very well decorated.
Very nice pool and shaded terrace with a big table for at least 6 people.
Kids enjoyed the pool and the garden.
Simone who takes care of the house is wonderful. If you have any issue, just call her and she will do her best to solve it quickly, she is very nice!!!
It was very easy to communicate with the owner.
Everything was perfect, we hope to return soon.
Excellent Stay - Wonderful Home
We have been renting properties in the Provence region for over 20 years and our stay at La Garance was one of the very best. The house is well situated in the beautiful Luberon Valley; private, pastoral and yet close to nieghboring villages and interesting sites. The house itself is immaculately maintained, and has every possible amenity needed for an enjoyable stay. The owner and caretakers are the best I have encountered; with excellent communication and follow up. We had an absolutley wonderful stay, and we intend to visit again.
Perfect home for a Provence holiday
We had a wonderful time at La Garance this September and agree with the comments made by the prior authors. The house is in an central location for exploring the area, close to many of the famous hilltop villages and the town of Coustellet for provisions. It felt very much like a home as soon as we arrived and is well equipped with everything you might need, especially in the kitchen. Having UK Freeview TV channels in the spacious living room was a nice bonus.
We made full use of the excellent sized pool every day. The garden is not overlooked and very peaceful with only the sound of the cicadas and the odd pigeon for company. We really didn’t want to leave and would highly recommend.
Lovely to Come Home To
Every day of our 9 days in Provence it was lovely to come home to La Garance. This home is truly a home - pretty, comfortably elegant and organized. Everything is in working order and there are good books to read and an excellent selection of music to listen to. It lived up to our expectations in every way.
La Garance is close to amenities and the beautiful village of Gordes where we ate many a meal. When we cooked our dinner at home we bought our food at local markets and shops.
We have recommended La Garance to friends and plan to return there ourselves.
We (two couples) stayed at La Garance for two weeks in late April, 2012. We loved it. The house was charming and beautifully appointed - - comfortable furnishings, lots of books (many in English) and interesting works of art on the walls. The bedrooms are at opposite ends of the house affording maximum privacy. The kitchen had everything we needed. Relaxing (and eating!) on the patio was a joy.
La Garance is in a perfect location for making day trips to numerous and varied sights. The area abounds in Roman ruins, medieval hill towns, secluded monasteries, vast agricultural valleys (with numerous wineries), wild hills and deep river gorges. Towns, large and small, in the area have wonderful markets and excellent restaurants.
We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at La Garance and would not hesitate to go back another time.
