Overview

Some of the most beautiful villages of France are within easy reach of Villa Bellevue, including Ménerbes, Lacoste, Goult, Bonnieux, and Roussillon. The closest villages, Beaumettes and Coustellet, are less than five minutes away, with a variety of shops and services. Aix-en-Provence is to the south, and the Côtes-du-Rhône wine-producing villages are to the north. L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, famous for its antiques dealers and open-air market, is a 20-minute drive. Guests can arrive by fast train (TGV) from Paris to Avignon, rent at car at the TGV station and drive just 30 minutes to the villa.

A country road winds through a grove of oak and pine trees and leads to Villa Bellevue, situated in a small hamlet of farmhouses near the beautiful village of Gordes. There are 3 acres of grounds including woods suitable for hiking. This classic Provençal villa has thick stone walls and a terracotta roof. In spite of its tranquil countryside atmosphere, Villa Bellevue is within an easy 10-minute drive on rural roads to several restaurants and food shops.

This top villa was decorated by a professional interior designer and has been furnished to high standards by its American owner. Cool, pale colors contrast with natural wood tones. The house is filled with light, which is somewhat unusual in a villa with such thick stone walls. The house faces south to take advantage of the sunlight, and offers beautiful views over the Luberon Valley.

On the ground floor is a spacious living room, decorated with earth tones and an occasional burst of color. Two sofas and several leather armchairs are arranged in front of a large fireplace, and a huge 18th-century armoire reaches to the ceiling. There is satellite TV with CNN and BBC reception. An archway separates the living room from the dining area, with a long farm table and leather chairs. French doors open from the living and dining room onto a terrace with a long stone table, a lovely setting for dining beneath the stars. Stone stairs descend from the terrace to the garden and pool (that can be heated at additional cost). The well-outfitted kitchen has top-quality appliances, including dishwasher, microwave, icemaker, and six-burner Lacanche stove (gas burners, electric oven), as well as a coffee bean grinder, food processor, and juicer. A laundry room with a large American-style washer and dryer is located just off the kitchen.

Villa Bellevue has five charming bedrooms, each with its own en suite bathroom. All of the bedrooms are air-conditioned and each has its own private sitting area. The bedrooms are quite equal, making Villa Bellevue ideal for a family or for up to five couples traveling together.

The master bedroom is one of two bedrooms on the ground floor. It has a fireplace, access to the terrace, and a bathroom that has a tub and separate stall shower. The other ground-floor bedroom has twin beds and a bathroom with shower. Although this room is somewhat smaller than the others, it is equally charming.

A winding stone staircase leads to the second floor, where the remaining three bedrooms are located, each with a fine view of the countryside. One has a king-size bed and en suite bathroom with tub and shower. The second has twin beds and bath with shower over tub. The third bedroom has a queen bed and bathroom with shower. There is a second, more casual sitting area on this level, with satellite TV and a stereo with CD player.
