About an hour from Marseille, the 5 star, La Bastide de Gordes is an ancestral castle built overlooking a rocky abyss, with a domineering vista over one of the most beautiful villages in France. Now a recently refurbished 40-room hotel, the property suspends time in the face of the majestic views over the Luberon.
Take a stroll on the traditionally paved streets of the medieval village of Gordres and you will discover architecture from the Louis XV era to 19th century manor-houses.
The hotel boasts “an authentic Provencal experience” and it does not disappoint. Savor local flavors and imaginative cuisine that pays sincere tribute to traditional Provencal cuisine.
Enjoy a relaxing lunch overlooking dreamlike views, sheltered by fragrant orange trees at the terrace of L’Orangerie. Indulge in gourmet cuisine at the Micheline-starred Pèir or dine by moonlight at La Citadelle.
Hotel Tip: The hotel is just a few miles from Village des Bories, an open-air museum of dry stone huts. The hamlet provides fascinating insight into 18th-century Provence.
