Inspiring!

My partner and I have visited Bonnieux on previous occasions, but always during the summer period. We love the authentic and friendly village and beautiful surroundings and were interested to visit it during the winter period. We could not have chosen a better place than the apartment of Sharon and Paul. It is spacious, quiet, has a wonderfully warm and cozy kitchen, a simple, yet rich interior with natural colours and a gorgeous view from the big window. We loved the atmosphere! After short or long strolls in and around the village, it was lovely to return to our 'home away from home'. We did not meet Sharon and Paul, but through the various and easy email exchanges they made us feel warmly welcome. Thank you!

Magnificent Holiday

Our family spent a week in this delightful apartment. The apartment was exactly as advertised, and everything was in working order (dishwasher, stove, washing machine), making our holiday trouble free. The location is wonderful: in the heart of the village, walking distance to all the important destinations in Bonnieux. Some highlights include: an evening Baroque music concert at the old church (walk up a beautiful set of stone steps to the top of the village for a panoramic view of the Luberon valley), daily breakfast and newspaper at the bakery (fresh baguette, pastries, and coffee), trips to nearby villages and market days, visits to vineyards offering degustations. But what we enjoyed the most was returning 'home' to the apartment for dinner inspired by local produce and menus! The kitchen is well equipped to cook just about anything. This wonderful kitchen for cooks is also equipped with simple and rustic tabletop collection that amplified the beauty of every meal. You'll rest well at this quiet apartment too because all you hear are occasional dogs barking and the sound of the gentle breeze... If you like self catering holidays, you won't find anything better. Please take good care of everything because we plan to return!

A place full of wonder

Bonnieux dazzled from the moment we saw it, high on its mountain, across the great valley floor. We were astounded that this could be it, ancient, high above the orchards and fields. We found numero vingt-six at once, I remembered the raspberry stained wall of your neighbor. We came into your home and it felt like home. Sean walked thru first, carrying our bags and I saw him stiffen as he saw the view, and then laugh, the disbelief and wonder.The window was filled to overflowing with the mountain in the haze of the afternoon heat's light. Below us the world fell away in deep green fields and trees, vines running along rusty trellises, clinging to white, chalky stonewalls. It is a lovely place, thank you for letting us feel so welcome.

We're in heaven!

Yes, we are here in your amazing apartment having arrived yesterday afternoon. Actually the entrance was like a scene from Chocolat . Bundled in cape and coat, heads against a cold wind. We were awed by town, door, and most especially your apartment. In our minds it is a VILLA. We had dinner at the little hotel down the street and today went to our first market in St. Remy. Beautiful and what an abundant market. We cooked an incredible dinner and are in absolute heaven in your kitchen. Sunny today and definitely warmer. You are right that November has its own charm. We loved our time in Paris, but here we are in heaven. Thank you, will enjoy every minute here

Even better than the photos

We had a wonderful time in Provence and found the apartment to be a warm, relaxing and beautiful home during our stay. It was even more inviting than the great photos. The wealth of books and music, the fantastic antiques, and the lovely glasses and dinnerware enriched our stay and comforted us. There is never enough time to do all that we hoped but we had fantastic experiences in Bonnieux - great food for two birthdays, a Handel concert at the church, fireworks in the distance the evening before the fete nationale, market day, the bakery, and more.

Magical time in Bonnieux

There are no sufficient words to convey the depth of our amazement and gratitude for the opportunity to explore the Luberon from this home base in Bonnieux. The house was prefect for for our family! We are completely exchanted with Bonnieux and the surrounding towns and landscape. Thank you for your gracious and magical hospitality!
