Absolutely perfect! A magical Christmas, fabulous house in a village with soul.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an incredible stay. The owner Beatrice is warm, attentive, knowledgable and caring. She prepared the house for us at Christmas with so many special touches.The 3 story manor village house has been renovated with such care and inspiration. It functions really well and was a joy to live in for a month. Parking is on the street out front and always was available. Walk to the left around the corner and you reach the village Petanque courts then the bakery, hairdresser and Post office. Walk around the corner to the right and you reach the little friendly epicerie, cheese shop , butcher, the cafe, church and town square where the little farmers market happens each week. Within a 10 minute drive there are many other charming villages to visit. We had so many great adventures in this lovely area of vineyards, orchards and caves!

Thank you Beatrice for having us, what a wonderful memory. We 100% recommend this loved for house!

Spacious and graceful house located in a hidden gem of a village in the Luberon

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Beatrice's lovely home in Goult was a dream come true. The home is spacious, very comfortable for a family. We had another couple come to visit and there was more than enough room to accomodate everyone. This is truly a special home, with everything you would need to have a comfortable stay. Our trip was very special as it was a celebration of my mother's 85th birthday. Beatrice went over and above, helping secure a chef to prepare a special birthday meal, staging the house to have decorations ready, as we arrived on my mother's birthday, arranging to make sure the kitchen was stocked, as we didn't have time to shop, and checking on us to make sure our every need was met. She made us feel like family. As for Goult itself, this is a truly charming village, with everything one would need, a local shop, boucherie, fromagerie, boulangerie, all within a few blocks of the house. Lovely restaurants in the town, with the Cafe de Poste being the central meeting place for your morning expresso or a delicious lunch. All of Beatrice's tips on good places to eat and places to visit were so helpful. We traveled almost exclusively around the Luberon area and didn't even get to see it all during our two weeks, but know that must see places like Gordes and Rousillion are only 15 minutes away. There aren't dozens of tourists in the town of Goult, so you avoid the crowds from the more crowded tourist spots, while being able to get to them within a short drive. The countryside abounds with vineyards, local produce from markets held every day in different villages, and it is easy to sink into the laid back Provencal style of living. After touring around during the day, the house pool offered a lovely respite and is well maintained by Beatrice's pool man, who pays regular visits to clean and maintain it. Look through the photos on the site and you can see the incredible view from the terrace off of the master bedroom. We couldn't get enough of that breathtaking view, and at night, the stars are glorious. We felt truly lucky getting to stay here. We have stayed at many places, and we can truly say that we have never stayed at a place with a more gracious, generous and kind host as Beatrice. How we got so lucky, I don't know. But I do know we are very grateful.

Perfect location to explore the Luberon

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Maison Elia for a week in mid May, using it as a base to explore the area. The house was ideal: well appointed with plenty of space and providing both privacy on the lower terrace and also an incredible view from the top terrace. Goult itself suited my elderly parents perfectly, offering everything we needed while being more tranquil, less steep to explore and less visited than most of the other villages. Beatrice, the owner made the effort to speak to us by phone on arrival and departure and was keen to ensure our stay was a success.

A beautiful house in the heart of the village

  • 5 of 5

We had a really wonderful week at Elia House - it's a beautiful old house, with lovely period features but a modern living space and kitchen that fits in really well. The bedrooms are all huge, as is the lounge area and the kitchen is very well equipped. The garden is an oasis with a big pool (albeit too chilly for us in April!). The village itself is known as the "secret" village of the Luberon - hidden from the main roads but an authentic and beautiful village, full of history but lived in all year round with its own boulangerie, fromagerie, boucherie and epicerie, as well as several excellent restaurants and homewares shops. It was fantastic walking just a few minutes to get a pastry and bread every morning. It's also a great base to explore the Luberon's charms. We arrived expecting to visit Arles, Nimes and Avignon but we found so much beauty and fascination in the local villages (loved Menerbes, Bonnieux, Roussillon at sunset, and Gordes) without needing to spend hours in the car. You will not regret choosing this house or the area! A special word for the owner, Beatrice, who was truly wonderful with her thoughtful suggestions, help and her responsiveness. An absolute pleasure to deal with and she ensured our holiday was entirely stress-free. We really hope to be back one day...

Amazing house in an amazing village!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent two incredible weeks at Beatrice's house in Goult. The first week we had a family reunion and the second a reunion with friends and their children. The house is large and beautifully decorated. Every bedroom as everything you need. There is a huge kitchen/dining area perfect for large gatherings and we spent many evenings sitting on the terrace overlooking the pool. The pool area is perfect with an adjoining area for BBQs and ping pong which provided much great entertainment. Danielle who manages the property lives across the street and couldn't have been more delightful and helpful - tears were shed when we had to say goodbye!

The house is situated on a quiet street in the heart of the beautiful village of Goult - walking distance to everything you need in the village. We made several trips to neighboring villages to explore the markets, however, Goult was by far our favorite village! It was a truly magical vacation and we hope very much to return one day.

Definitely giving this property and it's management team 5 stars!

Great place for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here in Goult. Beatrice was a wonderful host and met us at the property and could not do enough to help us with any query or challenge we had. The whole house is great - typical French character and each bedroom is unique and cosy. The roof terrace is where we spent most of our evenings and such an added bonus to any holiday property. The kitchen and outdoor space is wonderful and we really felt like it was a home away from home. We would highly recommend to anyone!
