About the property

Enjoy the privacy of your own gite and private pool, surrounded by vineyards.

Gite St Sophie is perfect if you’re looking for calm, tranquillity, open space and ‘real Provence’ It sits in a lovely location, at the end of a farm track, surrounded by 7 hectares of vineyards. Throughout the year the landscape and colours change and the in summer the vines come right up to the terrace of your gite.

The traditional gite is well furnished and includes a few interesting and antique artefacts. The living area has French doors leading onto the terrace and is comfortably furnished with a leather sofa bed, coffee table and TV, as well as a welcoming open fireplace for the Wintertime and air-conditioning for the Summer months.

The kitchen/dining area is well equipped with all the appliances you’re likely to need, in including a fridge, freezer, oven, washing machine and dishwasher. There’s also a large solid wood dining table and chairs for up to six people.

The double bedroom is located up a set of ‘millers’ stairs in the attic. The stairs may take a little getting used to, but the view once you’re up there is great.

There's a sofabed in the lounge, ideal for one adult, or 2 small children.

There’s a shower room with separate WC.

During the summer, you’ll probably spend most of your time outside, enjoying the beautiful Provencal sunshine. To allow you to do this, the property has a shaded terrace, as well as a private garden and BBQ. Garden furniture is supplied to allow you to sit back during those long lazy days and enjoy the view. There’s also loads of car parking space.

There is your own private swimming pool, (8m x 4m), ideal for taking a quick dip to cool off.

Peace and quiet lovely pool

  • 5 of 5

Very restful stay. Everything we needed. Wonderful private pool. Cosy house. Owner very helpful if you asked but left alone otherwise. Good central location with lots to see and do in Provence. You need a car because of the location but we liked being out of town. Didn't want to leave which says it all.

A rustic Gite in the middle of vineyards

  • 4 of 5

Lovely location amidst vineyards

Extremely helpful host who gave us tips on places to visit

We enjoyed the white wine made by our host

Private pool is a bonus

It would be useful to have a file with information on local walks, markets etc but our host helped us with these queries.

Stairs to the bedroom are quite steep and would not be suitable for everyone

Gîte formidable

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé d'excellentes vacances dans ce gîte très agréable, calme et bien isolé sans aucun vis à vis, au milieu des vignes et avec une superbe piscine.

S'y ajoute un accueil chaleureux des propriétaires, discrets et soucieux de notre bien être, et un gîte joliment décoré !

Nous recommandons vivement et gardons l'adresse pour revenir certainement !

Notre séjour c'est très bien déroulé, nous avons passé d'excellentes vacances.

Le gite St Sophie correspond bien à la description, mais avec des plus, ce qui est une agréable surprise.

Je peux préciser :

• Climatisation dans les 3 pièces : chambre, salon et cuisine, c'est vraiment un gros plus.

• la piscine parfaite, pas de vis à vis, on a l'impression d'être seul au monde.

• l'environnement idyllique, vue sur les vignes et les montagnes, super tranquille.

• La chambre, literie excellente et ultra propre et saine.

Les propriétaires sont très discrets, l'accueil chaleureux et Jean-Louis répond rapidement si besoin est.

A recommander. Eve & Marc

Despite its quiet location, your gite is only a short (3km) drive or cycle (bikes for rental) from the town of Pertuis where you'll find shops, bars, cafés and supermarkets.

If you fancy a more rural approach to shopping, there are some great local Paysan Markets. Every day of the week, in a host of villages nearby, local growers gather to sell their produce; Springtime brings fresh strawberries, green and white asparagus, cherries in May and June, with tomatoes olives garlic and courgettes all grown locally and available practically all year round.

The winding roads of the Luberon, with spectacular views, are great to explore and you'll find lots of charming villages (Gordes, Menerbes, Maubec, and Bonnieux) on the doorstep.

If you are feeling energetic, the hills around the gite have some great cycling and walking tracks, there are tennis courts available in Pertuis and this area is perfect for climbing and golf.

If visiting is your thing, you really are spoilt for choice.
