Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Les Marres sits in the valley below Gordes surrounded by fields of grapes, vegetables, fruit, lavender, and wheat. The yard is large, containing an orchard of 30 fruit trees, a swimming pool and deck, an English garden, and ample parking. A nine foot Cedar hedge surrounds the property providing privacy, but allowing views of nearby Gordes and the foothills of Mount Ventoux.

The house is made of local rock with walls 2-3 feet thick and a red tile roof. It is the end unit of a “mas”, and there are adjoining houses on the West only. Doors on 3 sides of the house lead into a large room that contains a small office space, a dining room area, a central living room area with a fireplace, and a kitchen. Off the kitchen is a pantry/laundry room containing a dishwasher, a washer and dryer, a large refrigerator, and ample room for food storage. The floor is tile. The decoration and furniture are country French style. There is plenty of light from large French windows looking out onto a covered patio on the South side. There is also a half bathroom and a large closet.

On the second floor are 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms all with tile floors. The third floor has 2 single beds and ample storage space. There is plenty of light from 2 skylight/windows.

About The Owner

I am a surgeon who loves the French lifestyle. I have owned the house for nearly 15 years and spent 2 months per year there on the average. I have enjoyed the location for the tranquility, the opportunities for outdoor activities, the charm of the community, the great food and beautiful sights. The cycling in this area is world famous and can be very addictive.

The Owner purchased this house in 1995

Why The Owner chose Gordes

Warm, dry, sunny weather. Quiet, beautiful environment. Good local infrastructure: restaurants, touristic sights, open markets daily, wineries every few kilometers. This area has just enough tourism to support the local services, but not enough to be crowded.

What makes this house unique

Complete isolation and privacy. Beautiful spacious property. Nice pool with deck. Excellent biking, hiking, and close access to charming villages with great bistros, cafes, and restaurants.

We stayed for a week in May 2010 in this home in the countryside central to Goult,Roussillon and Gordes.There were four adults.Plenty of room,nicely furnished with all kitchen needs catered for,great outdoor area.Wonderful property to return to after exploring the region and environs for the day.

Recommend La Terrasse restaurant in Goult.

Roman Menz (Managing Agent) was extremely helpful with any enquiries.

As you can see we enjoyed our stay in Provence aided and abetted by our home away from home lodgings.
