The
Experience

High on the edge of popular Goult, in a colourful garden with panoramic Luberon views, this recently-renovated hillside cottage is cosy, comfy and not at all pretentious. House, garden and pool are well hidden from the road by luxuriant vegetation, even better you can ditch the car and walk to buy your daily bread (and croissants) and stroll to restaurants in the evening. You are greeted by local couple Camille (who speaks fluent English) and Jean-Raphael, and you’ll find a bottle of chilled wine in the fridge: climb up rustic stone stairs to the more secret part of the garden, past the owner’s vines (his pride and joy) to a bench with fine views and feel glad to be here. The big airy living room is bright with its orange and ochre furnishings and the nicely-tiled, green and white, galley kitchen has all a good cook might want. Not large but prettily done, the two double bedrooms face south while the twin room and en suite shower are more compact. There’s masses to visit: medieval hilltop villages, Roman towns, Cistercian abbeys, the ochre mines of Roussillon…

Reviews

The house is easy to live in, with everything we needed, and the outside area is very private, pretty and calm. Being able to walk for fresh croissants to eat at home, looking at gorgeous Luberon views, was a bonus. Even more so being able to walk to a choice of 3 very good restaurants. It is best to book a table in advance. Goult is pretty but less crowded and touristy than the other perched villages we visited. Colin was quick and helpful at every stage and likewise the managers. We enjoyed our stay so much that we have already booked for next year!

Lynne, Prestbury, cheshire

A wonderful holiday in this lovely house with its beautiful garden and pool. What a treat to be able to walk to bakers, butchers, green grocers, grocers, cheese shop, bar and restaurants. Goult is a beautiful and quiet village, perfectly situated for visiting other places of interest in the area. Colin was very helpful and always quick to respond to queries.

Location

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Colin Johnson

  • Enjoy the fabulous view across the valley every morning from the outside table, or sitting in the shade of trees above the house. Watch the light change as you sit by the pool as the sun goes down. The Luberon mountain seems different every time you look!
  • We are 5 minutes walk from the village centre, with cafe, baker, butcher, cheese shop and general store, and several good restaurants. The weekly market has local goat's cheese, and an excellent fish stall, or you can browse the gift and antique shops
  • Goult is the 'hidden village' of the Luberon, tucked in the Golden Triangle of Gordes, Roussillon and Bonnieux, but without the crowds. Visit ochre quarries, vineyards, lavender fields, Roman remains and gardens, or go canoeing, all within 20min by car
  • Play tennis on the village courts 3 min walk from the house. Unlimited access for a weekly subscription. Children can enjoy two playgrounds and an (unsupervised) climbing wall. Walk or cycle through forest or over hills, or relax beside your private pool
  • Explore local vineyards where enthusiastic producers will explain how their wine is different from the next, and talk you through the flavours in your glass.This is Peter Mayle country, and the location of the film 'A Good Year'. See where it was made!
  • Within an hour's drive visit Roman Arles, Nimes, Orange. The Pont du Gard aqueduct soars 49m above the river. Relive the majesty of the medieval Popes in Avignon's Palais des Papes.Drive (or cycle!) up Mont Ventoux, it is unforgettable!.
