Suite Bonnieux - Garden

Garden & Pool

The property is in 2.8 ha of land (7 acres), with a big lavender field and pool at the front. Beyond the lavender are the two hill-top villages of Bonnieux and Lacoste and the Luberon mountain.

Suite Bonnieux is the right hand part of the farmhouse. Beyond the lawn and pool is the lavender field.

The pool is 13m x 7m (42 x 23ft) and has a heat pump to add some degrees in the shoulder season. The pool is shared with two small rental units on the same property, Apartment Lacoste and Apartment Gordes (if those are occupied). By the pool, the poolhouse has barbecue and lounging furniture.

Beyond the garden is a large courtyard with fountain and the shade of plane trees - the perfect boules/petanque court. For lazing there is an outside sofa and on the lawn a hammock.
