This peaceful, fully refurbished Gite is located close to the Luberon National Park, in the countryside, a few km out of the the town of Cavaillon. It sits in the garden of the main (owners) house and can accommodate 2 people.
The owners have tastefully developed the property, making this a really comfortable but stylish one bedroom gite. It is ideal for a couple - apologies, children are not permitted in this accommodation.
The garden area is a winner! There are extensive grounds in which a parkland style of garden has been developed - well stocked with great plants, trees and shrubs.
There is also a beautiful swimming pool, built in a style to complement the rest of the grounds, created using natural local stone.
Kitchen: The open plan kitchen is equipped with gas hobs, a microwave oven and a coffee maker.
Bedrooms: The bedroom is a mezzanine level and has a large double bed (180 x 200cm) which can be separated to 2 singles. It’s reached by an open staircase.
Bathrooms: The single, modern bathroom is on the ground floor and contains a shower, toilet and sink.
Outside: The outside is a treat! The owners have created a beautifully landscaped garden, with plenty of space to relax and enjoy the beautiful Provencal sunshine. French doors open from the Gite onto a cute private terrace, with chairs for relaxing in the sun or shade.
Swimming pool: The freeform swimming pool blends in superbly with the surrounding garden, and is ideal for taking a quick dip, or doing a few lengths to burn off that hearty Provencal lunch!
Internet: Wifi internet connection is provided at this property
Baby facilities: These are not available and I'm afraid that children are not accepted.
Winter heating and summer air-conditioning are included:
Gas, electric, & water: These are all included in the rental cost.
End-of-stay cleaning: The owner arranges end-of-stay cleaning, and requests a fee of 60 Euros to cover this, payable locally.

In France it is necessary to pay a taxe de sejour (tourist stay tax) and this is calculated based on the number of people (adults) in your group and the time of year you stay. Under 18's are exempt. We will advise you of the tax due at the time you make your reservation.
Damage deposit: The owner requests a damage deposit of 200 Euros on arrival and this will be refunded to you at the end of your stay, less the replacement cost of any breakages.

This was our third visit to Gite St Eleonor. A simple but lovely gite in a wonderful setting. The new owners are absolutely delightful - the sort of people who we would really enjoy to have as neighbours and friends.
Over these last three years we have been very impressed with Joie de Vivre who have made the whole booking experience very easy, friendly and stress free.
Mr E, Oxon, UK July 2016
