Mas de Bonnieux - Location

The Location

 

Bonnieux, one of the most beautiful villages in France, and its weekly market.

The house is midway between the stunning Luberon villages of Bonnieux and Roussillon, 5 minutes from both.

Bonnieux is not only beautiful to look at on approaching, perched above the vineyards of the Luberon valley, but also a perfect Provencal village on the inside, with architecture and winding streets dating to the middle ages. The village has fantastic views to Lacoste to the west, Mont Ventoux to the north, and the Luberon mountain to the south.

Market day in Bonnieux is Friday morning, and there is a market in a neighbouring village every day of the week.

Roussillon is also a medieval hill-top village, known and loved for its amazing palette of ochre colours. It has all the amenities you need: restaurants and cafes, grocery, bakery, butcher, doctor, pharmacy, small specialist stores, galleries and a weekly market.

Roussillon and Bonnieux are two of perched, hilltop villages that make the Luberon region of Provence such a fascinating place to visit. Other nearby hilltop villages include MenerbesGordesLacosteOppede-le-vieux, and Goult, all within 15 minutes.

From this base you can explore the Luberon, its villages and markets, and close by you will find AvignonFontaine de VaucluseIsle sur la Sorgue, Les Baux de Provence, St Remy, Aix en Provence, Orange, Arles, Nimes, Marseille, the Camargue, Gorges du Verdon, to name just some of the great days out an easy drive away. The fishing village of Cassis on the Mediterranean is 90 minutes away, and the French Riviera 2-3 hours.

Rousillon has an extraordinary palette of colours, testament to its past as a major ochre producer.
