Le Grand Escape, Provence, France Vacation Rental
Imagine yourself sitting alfresco on the terrace of a beautiful stone villa sipping a cool drink. The view over the swimming pool is of the Luberon mountains in the distance. A 17th century farm house lies off to the side. This could only be Provence, land of artists, wine, sun, and history.
With its south-facing terrace overlooking an infinity-view swimming pool, newly landscaped grounds and five spacious en-suite bedrooms, all of them air-conditioned, Le Grande Escape is the ideal headquarters for a group of couples who desire a residence of great comfort and character from which to explore Provence and its many culinary and historic treasures. Situated on a one-hectare (2.5-acre) slightly elevated terrain in a small hamlet of farmhouses near Gordes, the property has a quiet countryside ambience that is completely untroubled by traffic noise. A long row of olive trees stretches across the property. From the terrace and most rooms views stretch over the Lubéron Valley to the horizon. Even with its bucolic setting, there is a wide variety of quality restaurants and food shops within a 10-minute drive of the property.
Le Grand Escape is also within easy reach of the villages of the Lubéron so adored by travel writers, among them Ménerbes, Lacoste, Goult, Bonnieux and Roussillon. Beaumettes and Coustellet, small villages with a variety of shops, are less than five minutes by car. The property is likewise well located for excursions beyond the Lubéron. Aix-en-Provence lies to the south, the Côtes-du-Rhône wine-producing region to the north, and the villages and restaurants (among them the famed Oustaù de Baumanière at Les Baux-de-Provence) of the Alpilles region to the southwest. The historic town of L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, once a center of the Provençal silk trade and now home to more than 200 antiques dealers and Provence's best-known open-air market, is a drive of less than 15 minutes.
