Nestled on the side of a hill with stunning views looking out over toward Bonnieux lies a small, secluded studio for two. This little rental is a dream. Though small, it is fitted to such a high standard.
But that view! I could stand there all day washing dishes at the kitchen sink with a view that makes you just want to pinch yourself. It could not be captured in photos. Many evenings, we just parked ourselves in the chairs facing the window and stared out at the view.
The rental has three outdoor areas for relaxing as well. And with Café de la Poste just a two-minute stroll away, it is the perfect location.
As mentioned before, the village of Goult itself is a secret little gem of the Luberon. With charm for days, it also has some excellent restaurants, two boulangeries, a cheese shop, and the most adorable grocery store.
For those looking for an economical yet high standard rental, the studio in Goult is fantastic. It can be viewed more closely here on the Luberon.com.
While most tourists visiting the Luberon head right for the spectacular villages of Gordes and Roussillon, there lies tucked away in a world all its own the quiet, refined, and classy village of Goult.
Classy is the word to describe this quaint little village with its photogenic little square of plane trees, ancient buildings, and the lively Café de la Poste.
As you make your way up from the village square, you will pass a beautiful boutique, an antique shop, a fromagerie, and the most adorable épicerie with a separate fruit and vegetable room across the street.
From here you can continue to wander the charming streets and narrow passageways filled with elegant intricacies as you find your way to the windmill at the top.
There are at least three popular restaurants in the village, which are usually fully booked by locals. So reservations are a must. La Bartavelle, on a narrow street above the main square, seems to be the most popular with locals and foodies alike. In addition, there are le Carillon and la Terrasse, which are always booked. Another casual yet enjoyable option is to order a pizza from the pizzeria directly across from the Café de la Poste and take it to the café to eat while ordering drinks.
Yes, Goult is still a bit of a secret from the mass crowds. In fact, one gite rental binder recommends Goult with a big “Shh!” Meaning, don’t let the secret out.
