The panoramas afforded by La Bastide de Gordes’ rocky perch in the Luberon’s picturesque hills are peerless, as is the sheer rural beauty of the hotel itself, part of Gordes’ 12th-century fortifications. Perfectly kempt gardens and lawns surround its dramatic pool on the cliff edge, overlooking the gorge below – a breathtaking view shared by terraces that make every sunset seem positively dreamlike. Its suites brim with 18th-century art and history, timeless and incredibly handsome wood panelling, ornate gold fixtures and decorative fabrics.
Punctuated with the choice of four restaurants (including one that has gained a Michelin star for its regional fare), a day might begin with a visit to the hotel’s Sisley spa, pause for a moment in the pool and end with a glass of wine strolling the ramparts. A sublime refuge in a beguiling setting.
