Ulysse is an amazing, completely restored farmhouse in Provence that—much like its namesake Ulysses or Odysseus—provides marvelous surprises at every turn. In the case of this villa, however, these sources of wonderment fortunately take the form of an almost endless series of luxury perks. Relax and rejuvenate yourself at this diamond villa located in the lush area of Gordes.
A long majestic fountain leads through the manicured gardens to an alfresco lounge. The gardens were designed by Jean Mus with Italian flower beds, waterfalls, sculptures, orchards, garden pavilions, kiosks and Indonesian chalets. The grounds also feature a soc...cer playground and track (also a heliport), a child friendly swimming pool, outdoor furniture for alfresco dining, deck chairs, umbrellas and a pool house equipped with a bar. You will also find a fitness room, a hammam (Turkish steam bath), ping pong and foosball tables and two basketball hoops. The synthetic clay tennis court is located below the garden, sheltered from the mistral wind. The interiors include an office equipped with Internet access, computer, telephones, fax and video conference screen.
As you enter the ground floor through the inner courtyard, you walk into a large salon with a fireplace, plush and tasteful furnishings, a black grand piano, numerous works of art, curios and antiques. The organically shaped coffee table is a pièce de résistance. The formal dining area with its resplendent decor sets an impeccable backdrop for fine dining and sharing special news with your loved ones or entourage. The kitchen comes fully equipped with a stainless steel center island bar.
Six lovely bedrooms accommodate up to twelve guests at Ulysse. All of the bedrooms include en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning and TVs. Fine linens and accoutrements provide a cozy night of rest.
Located in Gordes, Ulysse villa is within easy driving distance of the magnificent cultural and historical areas of Avignon, Isle Sur La Sorgue and Carpentras. Golfers will be happy to be in proximity of several excellent courses including Golf de Servanes, Golf de Pont Royal and the Provence Country Club. During your stay at “Ulysses,” the only sirens singing on this trip to France will be the tender chirping of crickets as you fall into sweet lavender dreams.
