Interaction with guests
I live in London but I have someone who manages the property and is at hand if anything goes wrong. He also maintains the garden and pool. I also have a cleaner who cleans the house throughly after each stay. I am always at the end of my mobile and any problems are immediately attended to. I have been renting for several years and I am happy to say, 99.9% of guests have a wonderful time and a few return year after year. I would say, I am far away but I easily build up a warm rapport with guest through emails and phone.

This is the perfect spot for a perfect holiday. It always feels like home. It is a few minutes down the hill from Gordes. There are a few houses around, but you can't see them through all the trees and bushes, so it feels, and...More

Wonderful house, grounds and pool, with some mysterious spots at the boundaries. Get your bread and patisserie at Mamie Jeanne in Gordes - simply the best. Sunday lunch outside at the old post office in Goult is great. Bristrot des Roques in St Pantaleon is...More

About the neighbourhood
Gordes is a popular destination in the Luberon. The 17th C village built on a hillside is one of the most beautiful places in the whole region with a spectacular wide range of things to do and see. The villa is beautifully secluded and tranquil just a five minute drive to the village centre with all its restaurants, galleries, bars, market and cultural events. It takes 25 minutes to walk. This walk takes you through one of the most stunning views in the world. The villa is also close to the famous Isle Sur Sorgue and Avignon ( described as mini Barcelona and the most beautiful town in France. The villa is a charming authentic 17th Century stone house. Attention to interior and outdoor decor gives this villa a fresh, modern look.
