Perfection in Bonnieux...

My husband and I stayed in Sharon + Paul's studio for a week in December and we both agreed we will be returning ASAP. The rental itself is fully equipped and beautifully designed and maintained - it is a more than idyllic and peaceful retreat set amongst the stunning mountains and towns of the Luberon region. We made this apartment our home base and spent each day hiking, going to the farmer's and antique markets and visiting towns such as St. Remy, Aix-en-Provence and Avignon. Sharon and Paul are also the most thorough and warm owners - they provided us with all the information we needed on getting to Bonnieux + checking in, and they go above and beyond in filling the apartment with personal touches and creating a lovely home for their guests. We loved our stay and have found our new happy place - we cannot wait to return next year! - L + S

Blissful Retreat

Every good review of the Bonnieux Studio is true. It would be hard to surpass the superlative descriptions written by previous guests because it is truly a wondrous space! The exquisite styling created by Sharon and Paul in this extraordinary medieval building contributes to the feeling that you are living in your own magical time warp, yet with all the conveniences of a modern kitchen and bathroom, superb bed and French linens, cozy armchairs and a view of the Luberon valley that is breathtaking. Its perfect location in the village makes it easy to walk to local patisseries, grocery and restaurants. The weather in October was glorious and warm. Local markets in Bonnieux and Lourmarin are not to be missed. Just go!

Paradise and Practical in Provence

For me it does not get better than this. Like it’s village, Bonnieux, this studio has a quiet, authentic beauty. Even though every detail adds to the charm I felt such serenity in this peaceful place. Backing up this beauty was everything needed to live well here, great towels, great bed linens, great mattress, lovely shower,comfortable chairs with beautiful stools for relaxing, lovely pottery for dining on the long generous table. We never felt crowded in this small space, only cozy and pampered. On a mistral day we we sat and read in the golden light while we watched the cypress quiver outside The thick walls blocking out the sound but the beautiful window letting in the expansive hillside beyond. The pictures do it justice but “living” here could restore your soul. My only hesitation in writing this is a selfish one, I want to return and am so grateful we found it and and had the unexpected pleasure of meeting Sharon and Paul the warm, intelligent, geniuses who created it.

Perfect apartment in Bonnieux!

We loved it here so much we never wanted to leave! I stayed here last summer and my husband and I could not have been happier with our rental. The place is beautiful and possibly even more charming than these pictures show it to be. Located in a very beautiful old building, the studio is clean and comfortable and well-equipped for travelers. The view from the window is stunning looking over the valley, and the location is perfect for wandering around town without having to drive, or as a jumping-off point for exploring the region. I can't believe my luck at having found this place! We loved the farmer's market and the many bakeries and restaurants in town, and we splurged and ate at Le Fournil one night - it did not disappoint. Thank you Sharon and Paul for such nice accommodations.
