Les Rossignols is a tranquil haven situated in beautiful surroundings near the historic hilltop villages of Gordes, Roussillon, Bonnieux, Lacoste and Menerbes in the very heart of Provence. The famous medieval city of Avignon is only 50 km away. Charming design and lovely far-reaching views across the valley, characterise these two , fully-equipped apartments built in an artist's home. Both have their own sitting areas near the house and more secluded areas in the cool and shady grounds. As the apartments are alongside each other they are also perfect as one unit (together totalling approx.120 sqm with 3 bath/showerrooms)
An attraction of Les Rossignols is its natural park covering 5 hectares, with a path around the grounds ideal for a nice leisurely walk. A real rarity is the 35 metre square swimming pond which after many years of planting and care has developed into a little oasis - something special for people who enjoy swimming in an natural enviroment. Even without adding any chemical products, the water is always crystal clear. There is easy access to the water via a stone stairs or a wooden diving pier. Or you can simply relax by the water under the covered pergola on our comfortable loungers. We also have a big outdoor table for our guests to meet for an aperitif or invite their own guests. From here you can admire the spectacular sunsets over the ancient village of Gordes. An historic water bassin from the 17th centruy has been renovated to offer a refreshing bath in the shade. Also ideal for Non-Swimmers.
The area offers a great variety of excursions: "Le Parc Naturel du Luberon" and its picturesque villages, the impressive Palais des Papes in Avignon, the famous antique market in L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, where you can pick up a few bargains, the unique nature reserve of the Camargue, and Aix-en-Provence with its beautiful buildings, wonderfully restored Roman baths and fine shopping area. The nearby hilltop village of Roussillon is characterised by the wonderful variety of deep ochre colours used in it's construction. Elsewhere in the region, major international cultural events take place, including the Avignon Theatre Festival, the Opera Festivals in Aix-en-Provence and Orange, and the Piano Festival in Roque d'Antheron. Golf, riding, climbing, hiking, or even flying in a hot air balloon are all accessible within 20 minutes.

The bed-sittingroom is very large with a beautiful wooden floor, kingsize bed (1,50m), dining area with large round dining table, and sitting area with an antique wooden sofabed, armchair, TV and VCR/DVD.
