Located in the tiny hamlet of Les Gros, just 5km drive outside Gordes, this spacious, three-bedroomed Luberon house offers you a traditional Provençal welcome, complete with plenty of terrific spots to relax and admire the striking panorama of the Vaucluse hills.

A beautiful retreat that embraces its rich architectural history, while delivering comfort inside and out, the exquisitely furnished Maison Baroque stylishly delivers the quintessential Provence countryside experience. As you arrive, passing Les Gros’ ancient chapel, this authentic Luberon home immediately begins to enchant, with its superbly maintained stone walls and painted window shutters so typical of this magical region.

As you enter, into the spacious open-plan dining room, the attention to detail paid to the décor becomes immediately apparent. The thoughtful furniture choices suit the character of the property perfectly, along with bright walls and curtains at the large patio doors, conducive to maximising natural light, giving a homely feel before you’ve unpacked.

The dining table seats up to six guests, while a large comfortable sofa sits in front of the television and fireplace, along with two stylish chairs. A broad, marble-topped breakfast bar forms the partition between the lounge area and this house’s well-equipped kitchen. The bright and airy kitchen lends itself to uncorking a bottle of local wine, putting some of the area’s tastiest food together and heading out for a relaxing dinner on the terrace, just outside the lounge’s patio doors. A cosy conservatory area at the end of the kitchen offers just one of Maison Baroque’s many delightful spaces to relax in, while the separate office space with a bureau and sofa is ideal if you need to bring out your laptop during your stay.

The three double bedrooms are all tastefully furnished, with large, comfortable beds. A blissful night’s sleep is aided by this home’s thick, stone walls, keeping the interior from becoming too hot. The master bedroom, with en-suite bathroom, opens to a balcony with spectacular Luberon views that will put you in a state of bliss as soon as you wake. The second bedroom has an equally stunning view from its window, with the stylish third bedroom and main bathroom completing the well-configured first floor.

Exiting the lounge takes you directly onto the upper terrace, with a dining table seating six, along with two deckchairs from which to absorb the picturesque hillside vista. Head down the stone steps to discover the beautifully planted garden, where you will find extra dining space in the shade of a mulberry tree. The ten-metre long pool, with large steps for easy access into the water, has two comfortable sun loungers at its side and is bordered on two sides by the garden’s fabulous stone wall.

Maison Baroque is ideally situated for exploring the many wonders of the Luberon, with a wealth of stunning villages close by, most notably the outstanding Gordes, just a ten-minute drive away. The phenomenal panoramas of the Vaucluse region, along with its magical, tranquil ambience, will not only enchant you throughout your days out, but also when you return home to this exceptional getaway.

The villages of the Vaucluse département are famed for many reasons. Grandiose hillside vistas that are as beautiful looking in as out, boutique shops, artisanal markets full of the most incredible Provençal produce, innovative and traditional restaurants alike, not to mention the wine and weather! If you’ve never visited the region, but vaguely recollect seeing a breathtakingly stunning village in the area, perhaps on a travel programme on television, or in a magazine – the chances are you are thinking of Gordes.

Take your best walking shoes to Gordes, then explore its labyrinthine pathways through streets of stunning limestone buildings that forge a glorious synergy with the natural landscape, punctuated with astonishing viewpoints at every turn. As well as the famous terraces at L’Orangerie and La Trinquette, many of Gordes’ restaurants offer tables with views as incredible as the cuisine. Booking ahead is strongly advised, particularly during high season. In keeping with Gordes’ rich artistic heritage, you will discover many independent shops with work from local artists, along with terrific boutiques, including one belonging to the world-famous Provence cosmetics house, L’Occitane.

Tuesday is market day in Gordes, with its glorious explosion of colour and flavour beginning in the castle square. If you plan to visit, we recommend you make sure to withdraw some cash on the Monday, as the inevitable queues at the cash machines will eat into your browsing time! The sight of so much exquisite Provençal produce, crafts, fabrics, hats and much more is quite the experience, with no true gastronome leaving empty-handed! Local olive oils, lavender honeys and artisanal breads abound, along with Tricolore-inspired displays of tomatoes, basil and rosemary.

Once lunchtime comes around, you will have a basket full of treasures from the market, so how about a picnic? We recommend heading another ten minutes northeast from Gordes to the equally stunning village of Murs, where you will find countless spots to lay out a blanket, breathe in the freshest of hillside air, then savour some of your culinary haul, surrounded by a quite extraordinary Vaucluse panorama.

Two terrific museums are located close to Maison Baroque, with the Museum of Olive Oil and Lavender Museum both within a 10-minute drive. These superb attractions provide visitors with fascinating insights into both the past and present of two of the region’s most famous products. As the name of La Musée de l’Huile d’Olive suggests, you are taken on a fascinating journey from the old oil press methods, to twenty-first century production techniques of this flagship Provençal export. These days, the estate’s expansion encompasses more than just olive oil production, with La Royère’s magnificent range of wines and spirits, all crafted from local ingredients, showcasing another layer of the area’s impressive agronomic industries. With the museum and shop open all year round, you can also partake in a guided tour with oil and wine tasting for a small fee, should you need a little help deciding which bottles to take home!

Based within Le Château du Bois Provence and open from approximately April to December, La Musée de la Lavande offers an experience as gentle and pleasing as the flower itself. With gloriously aromatic guided tours and interactive workshops available, you can enjoy a unique, hands-on experience with this world-famous and versatile flower. Provençal lavender is of course the star of the on-site boutique, whose products proudly bear the estate’s name, where you will discover olfactory delights such as face and body care cosmetics, lavender teas, exclusive perfumes and more.

For those keen to explore this region’s rich agrarian heritage, under a quarter of an hour’s drive from Maison Baroque and popular with many visiting families, is the open-air interactive museum Village des Bories, featuring a preserved network of eighteenth century stone huts. These huts, or bories, used for a multitude of agricultural purposes, were built by Gordien agricultural workers, using cutting-edge masonry techniques.

Cycling in the Luberon region is a wonderful experience that plenty of family groups return to the area for each year. If you’re not taking your own bikes, there is no need to miss out – the Luberon region has several bike rental companies, leasing trekking bikes, mountain bikes, E-bikes and E-MTB bikes, with some providing a free delivery and pick-up service to your holiday base. Personalised guided rides are also available, with specially designed routes tailored to your preference.

A thirty-minute drive from Maison Baroque, outdoor adventure park Colorado Aventures, is open from approximately April to November. This popular day out with many families visiting the area has plenty of fun activities, including outdoor laser tag, bungee jumping and even a family accrobranche course.
