5 minutes from one of France’s most beautiful villages
Near to the “perched” village of Gordes, known the world over, where a first castle was constructed as of the 11th century, and whose actual appearance predominantly dates from the Renaissance era. It was in the 17th & 18th centuries, as well as in the first half of the 20th century that Gordes experienced its golden age, with numerous mills, craftsmanship and commerce, and houses built as far as the Veroncle and Sénancole valleys, where the beautiful gem of Cistercian art, Sénanque abbey, takes pride of place. This property stands near to the Sénancole valley. In the midst of a little steep hamlet, the view over the Luberon mountains is unobstructed.
45 minutes from Avignon TGV train station; 1 hour from Marseille international airport; 10 minutes from all shops; 10 minutes from an 18-hole golf course.
In an excellent state of repair, this property is, itself, laid out in three traditionally-built, dry-stone sections like a little hamlet, restored and constructed between 1980 and 2015. The view over the Luberon mountains is omnipresent.
The main and oldest house, is laid out like an old, traditional Mas house, with a vast, central living room, featuring a large picture window, opening on to a terrace, a small television room, a large kitchen, a laundry room and a guest toilet. On one side is a main suite, with a study, a dressing room and a bathroom, on the other, two bedrooms share a full shower room. Each bedroom opens either on to the garden or the terrace.
The second building is now a vast, very bright library-workshop, spanning approx. 60 m², with a mezzanine and a shower room. The inside could be reconverted to suit requirements. It opens on to a terrace which communicates with the kitchen.
And finally, the last section of the property is composed of two independent bedrooms, each with a bath and shower room, opening on to the entrance area and the garden, planted with cypress trees as well as laurel and lavender bushes.
A paved terrace runs alongside the buildings. A covered car parking area is housed under one section of the terrace.
The independent studio flat
The last section of the property is composed of two independent bedrooms, each with a bath and shower room, opening on to the entrance area and the garden, planted with cypress trees as well as laurel and lavender bushes.
This property is the ideal place to live safely, in the peace and quiet, amidst natural surroundings, without being isolated. Contemplation of the landscapes and the sky, the ever-changing colours and light, the fragrances of the pine and cypress trees, the rosemary, lavender and star jasmine bushes as well as the birdsong will delight all those seeking relaxation, whether on holiday or working from home. Here, every season has its own special beauty. The range of cultural activities available, summer and winter alike, is of great interest in Avignon and in nearby villages as well as in Aix-en-Provence. This house would suit not only a family, but also artists and writers, or at the very least lovers of nature and beautiful landscapes.
