Summer : The time to relax…
Gordes gets peaceful and most of the hordes of tourists are now gone
Yes, there are quite different times to enjoy : Now, days are getting shorter, the heat becomes liveable.
The air gets fresh from §:00 PmM and the sunset is back in the axis of the living area. So it gets incredibly beautiful.
The scenic Tour is for a bit more than 4 hours, depending on your interests. We have ten essential spots and ten “secret one”. As we are on the south side of the valley, here you enjoy the sun all day until unbelievable sunsets viewed from the pool area. So you first go down from Gordes to Roussillon, then Bonnieux, Menerbes and Oppede-Le-Vieux. All of these hilltop villages have superb features, mostly different. You can have lunch in Café de la Poste in Goult ( The one mentionned in Peter’s Mayle famed book ” A Year in Provence”) or in “Le Petit Café” in Oppède ( We make the bookings for you if you wish). And finish the day maybe in L’Isle-sur-la- Sorgue at our best restaurant “Café Fleurs”.
Or you come back “at home”, have a shower, a nice “evening aperitif” in our Summer Dining Room on the edge of the pool. And lavishly enjoy the sunset befare walking to Restaraunt “L’Estellan ” on the other side of the street.
