A wonderful, big Provence home with pool and tennis court, that can sleep up to 20 people in great comfort, under a mile from the stunning village of Gordes. There are great views down the Luberon valley and over the lavender field to Gordes, and the house combines the charm of an old Provence house with all modern comforts. The layout of the house is spread out and allows big groups to find their own privacy, but also for everyone to get together. An English-speaking caretaker is on hand to quickly deal with any problems during a rental.

At the front of the house is the pool area with sunloungers, two dining tables in the shade, and an outdoor grill as well as a Weber bbq.

Off the dining room at the upper level of the house is another terrace, which is a great spot for an evening aperitif.

The annex house also has its own terrace by the lavender field, so there are many different spots to make one’s own.

Out of sight of the house is the tennis court, which has an artificial grass surface – this is a great surface, especially for those with knee and joint issues.

Access is through a gated entrance, up a tree-lined avenue, and there is plenty of secure parking. The house is set back from the nearest road which in any case is a very quiet country road.

What we like


  • Space:  This is the house where we would want to celebrate a special birthday with friends and family, up to 20 people can live in great comfort.
  • Independence:  With two wings and an annex, large groups can find their own privacy when needed.
  • Furnishings:  It’s beautifully furnished and decorated, every bedroom different but harmonious.
  • Outdoor:  Even when the house is full there are enough outdoor eating options, plus the grill and Weber bbq.
  • Views:  The elevation of the house gives beautiful views of countryside and perched villages.
  • Lavender:  It’s rare to have your own lavender field, and this one frames the perfect view of Gordes.

Things to note


  • Pool security:  The pool area is gated but care and supervision are still needed for children.
  • Toddlers:  The property is generally less suitable for toddlers, and there is a small stream that runs just beyond the garden, and is not fenced off.

Location – Gordes


Avalon is in a quiet setting 2km from the village of Gordes.

Gordes is perhaps the most picturesque village in Provence, if not France. Honey-coloured houses spiral down from the medieval castle at the top, to form the perfect hill-top village. Views from the village are far and wide over the vineyards and orchards to the Luberon mountain.

Gordes has many restaurants and a lovely Tuesday morning market, as well as basic food stores. In summer it is lively with cultural events, in the off-season it is calmer and more relaxed. Just outside Gordes is ‘the’ lavender photo opportunity – Senanque Abbey.

Getting there

  • The nearest international airports to Gordes are Marseille (70km/41 miles), Nice (240km/149 miles), Nimes (91km/56 miles), Montpellier (131km/81 miles).
  • The nearest TGV high-speed stations to Gordes are Avignon TGV (41km/25 miles) and Aix-en-Provence TGV (78km/26 miles).
