Arrival and Departures

At the start of your stay, check-in is from 2.00 pm onwards. Just leave your luggage, relax and start to unwind by the pool, and feel the stresses of your journey just melting away!

If you are due to arrive after 7.00 pm, please let us know beforehand, so that we can make any necessary arrangements. It would be nice to arrive not later than 9.00 pm.

L'Asphodèle is not on a main road, but in the "garrigue" at the end of its own lane. Private parking is available.

At the end of your stay, check-out is at 12.00 midday.



Breakfast is served from 8.30 to 10.00 am, either in our dining room or on our large terrace overlooking the valley, depending on your preference.

A hearty buffet, different each day to add a touch of variety, includes Christophe's delicious homemade jams and fresh fruit juices.


The grounds and swimming pool

Just below the rooms, in the middle of the grounds, our large infinity pond pool (heated pool - 15x7) takes pride of place, set between the gardens and the "garrigue".

One side of the pool is surrounded by various secluded seating areas where guests can relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.

It's a great place to sit at night and gaze at the stars.

The pool is heated by solar energy.


To help you enjoy your stay

Although we no longer offer lunch or dinner at L'Asphodèle, we have carefully selected various restaurants for you, in Gordes and the surrounding villages, which we feel offer the best in quality and atmosphere.

To help you get the most out of your time here we have put together a catalogue of walks or bicycle rides, such as the one to the abbaye de Sénanque or the watermills of la Véroncle.
Bicycles are available for your use.

Guests are welcome to use our free WI-FI in the main house.

Rooms are cleaned every day. All linens and towels are provided, and extra towels are provided for pool use, if required.


For the comfort of all our guests

The main house and all guest rooms are smoke-free zones, as is the terrace during breakfast.

In order to maintain the peace and tranquillity for all guests, and especially given the property's layout (not enclosed and on the edge of a valley in the middle of the "garrigue"), we regret that we are unable to accommodate young children.
We thank your in advance for your understanding.

We do not accept pets, as they would not mix well with our cat.



"Make yourself at home, without forgetting that it's our home"
