Gordes and surroundings

Gordes has been recognised as one of the prettiest villages in France. The town is located in the Vaucluse region and is famous for its attractive setting. The Vaucluse is known for its golden triangle, Gordes – Ménerbes – Bonnieux, surrounded by the Regional Natural Park of the Luberon and recognised since 1997 as world heritage by Unesco. Lacoste with the castle of Markies de Sade, which is now owned by Pierre Cardin, and Roussillon with its ochre yellow rocks and red and orange coloured cottages are two other exquisite villages. They all have a splendid view across the valley and are quite appropriately called the "perched villages".

 

Only 15 minutes away from the guesthouse, you can visit L’Isle sur la Sorgue, with the most famous antiques and bric-a-brac market of France. It is also called Little Venice because the river Sorgue meanders through the town.

 

  • Excellent bistros and restaurants can also be found nearby, which explains why a trip through the Provence can be a delicious culinary adventure.
  • You can visit a different local market every day and experience the fragrances, colours and flavours that combine to make to a very special feast.
  • The region has endless vineyards with wine estates with excellent reputations where you can taste and buy the local vintages.
  • Golf arrangements are available at any of the five splendid golf courses in the region, including the Provence Country Club in Saumane.
  • All kinds of sports activities are possible. From private horse riding tours to guided cycling trips.
