Quite two native of Provence, genevieve grew in a farm in Bonnieux country-side and Jean Pierre in Salon de Provence. Maried since 1980 we live at Lioux 11kms away from le Grand Tilleul. We work together to maintain and take care of holiday homes and we are very demanding on the quality of the supplied prestattions
Genevieve purchased this Farmhouse in 1986
Why Genevieve chose Gordes
Before to be a holiday house we have built Le grand Tilleul by ourselves; with old materials. In 1986, we purchased the land to build our family home; it was then that a ruin, we have completely re-built and expanded in order to be a pleasant and comfortable place to live with family. Today, we are pleased to share this place to our visitors. During the rental season, we live in Lioux, a small village 11kms away and we will entrust the entire property.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
The house is ideally located for visiting Provence, with towns like Gordes, Menerbes, Roussillon, Avignon, Saint Remy de Provence or the Mediterranean sea : Cassis .Not too secluded , just enough close to the village ; very private, offering a view on the chateau of goult We can organize a private bicycle tour in the surrounding villages or Le Mont Ventoux with a professional coach /guide for an half or a full day tour either for tourism or for a sporting cycling tour with the possibility on renting a bike with electric assistance.

Very beautiful house & pool. Genevieve was v helpful & the villa was homely, stylish, spacious & v comfortable. We had a wonderful week exploring the area & lazing around the pool. Thank you so much Genevieve.
beautiful house and touring base for the Luberon just outside Goult
We spent two wonderful weeks in the Luberon based in the this beautifully-kept and well-appointed house just outside of the village of Goult. The house is lovely, the garden even lovelier. The location is great, near many other beautiful villages: Bonnieux, Gordes, Roussillon all within 8 km. Genevieve is a wonderful host: knowledgeable, helpful, and happy to take time to make suggestions. Having two very nice bikes was a great addition. We will be back.
I just can't say enough about this property and its wonderful owners. The house is perfectly located in the Luberon to visit everything you might want to see and the short walk into the village means you have all amenities within easy reach, including its fabulous restaurants! Genevieve is so helpful and couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome, despite turning up early! I absolutely promise, like me, you will not want to leave. Please form an orderly queue! Thank you again Genevieve!
Paradise in Provence
This property is simply amazing. We recently enjoyed a family vacation with friends (4 adults and 2 kids) and we could not have chosen a more picturesque or perfect location for our week long stay. The house is equipped with everything you could possibly need including very comfortable beds. The outdoor space is stunning. Our kids (ages 3 and 4.5) loved the pool, my husband mastered the charcoal bbq and we ate out on the terrace many nights. Le Grand Tilleul is located near several of the historic and quaint Provencal towns and wineries and is the perfect distance for stunning countryside drives or day trips to some of the Luberon valley's best markets. One of the highlights of our time in Goult was taking a cooking class at Venice en Provence. Not to miss if you are foodies like ourselves.
We highly recommend this beautiful home and it's lovely owners who were very friendly and provided us with tons of information about the surrounding area. This was certainly a bucket list trip for us and an experience we will never forget. We hope to venture back to Le Grand Tilleul for another incredible family adventure and live the beautiful Provence life once again.
A great holiday house
Le Grand Tilleul is a beautiful stone house surrounded by vineyards, beautifully restored and well equipped. It was very clean and well maintained. Better than the photos suggest. There is a very pretty covered terrace with views up to the Chateau Goult and great sunsets too. It was excellent for our party of 4 adults and twin 6 year old grand daughters. The girls loved exploring the gardens and the fenced off swimming pool is lovely and warm. Goult is very close by and has a weekly market, a few little shops and restaurants.
It is well placed for visiting the surrounding hill villages, with a castle atop most of them, it was interesting for the girls too. The area has plenty to interest children, kayaking on the river Sorgue and the equivalent of "Go Ape" nearby were great hits with them.
There are many good restaurants close by, our favourites being La Ferme de la Huppe just up the road and Cafe Veranda in Menerbes. A visit to Chateau Canorgue near Bonnieux for some good wine is recommended too.
Jean-Pierre and Genevieve are excellent owners, very welcomming and nothing is too much trouble. While we were out on our our middle Sarurday the house was completely cleaned and the bedding changed.
We have had several holidays in this area and this is the nicest place we have stayed, lovely house, lovely pool and well kept gardens in a wonderful area.
Thank you Genevieve and Jean-Pierre.
Thanks a lot Jane and George for your lovely review.
It was really a pleasure meeting you and your family ; we are really pleased you had such a great time.
We hope to see you again.

Goult is a fine example of a typical Provençal hilltop village, with an old restored windmill and stone houses leading up to an imposing castle. There is a good variety of shops to take care of any day-to-day needs, including a post office, a pharmacy, and a medical center. There are many good restaurants and a traditional French cafe. The staff at the local tourist office - La Maison du Village - are very helpful, and can offer plenty of advice concerning events to see and places to visit. Goult is situated 8 kilometers from Gordes, 25 minutes from Cavaillon and the A 7 motorway or lsle-sur-la-Sorgue with its antic market and just 5 km from the village of Coustellet, with its wonderful Sunday morning market where fresh regional produce is sold. The surrounding countryside is full of vineyards and cherry orchards, rising to the foothills of the Luberon.
