In the heart of one of France’s most beautiful villages

Overlookingone of France’s most beautiful villages, Gordes, this palace owned by Airelles Collection is surrounded by a beautiful historic heritage. La Bastide is built on the original 16th-century ramparts. This residence retains its authenticity, notably through the use of chic furnishings in the style of yesteryear. It was renovated in 2015 to reproduce the atmosphere of an 18th-century seigneurial château. Even the staff are dressed in traditional local garb. It’s hard not to succumb to the nobility of the place and the sweetness of Provence.
