[style]: Gordes Villa


I've shared a beautiful find in Luberon that made me dream of traveling to Provence again. While not cheap, that house was not on the expensive side either so I wanted to see just how good the more expensive rentals would be. Quick sort from high to low stars with some $12,000/night.. yes, per night but except the gardens I cannot say I was mesmerized by most of these more expensive places as I was with that Luberon country house.

After going down the list I found a nice house - more expensive at $2,400 per night but with amazing views.

From the site:
This superbly restored, dry stone, three story village house in Provence is nestled up against the cliff side of Gordes and faces directly out to the Luberon valley. In a landscape boasting every shade of green, guests of Vigne Vierge will be pampered by the luxury comforts and resplendent country style of this villa. In a region made famous by author Peter Mayle, many of the areas famous hilltop villages are only a short drive away from the site, with countless vineyards and specialty restaurants also close by.

This original home has been restored and furnished with immense care to detail. The large, exposed wooden beams in juxtaposition with the stone archways and stairways are magnificent reminders of a bygone era. The plush living room centered around the fireplace is a cozy spot for a good book or to share a cocktail. The formal dining area under the chandelier is a grand spot to share any special announcements or news. Take advantage of the optional personal chef and pre-stocking options for the ultimate in relaxation.

Five elegant bedrooms and seven washrooms comfortably accommodate up to ten guests at Vigne Vierge. All of the bedrooms include private bathrooms and air conditioning. One of the bedrooms provides direct access to the well manicured garden. The decor of each bedroom ranges from modern to antique.

The grounds at Vigne Vierge feature a pristine swimming pool with sun loungers and umbrella. Off the pool deck, you can enjoy some alfresco dining on the covered terrace. The pool house includes a kitchen.
