Apartment Gordes - Location

The Location

 
<

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

The property is 3 miles from 3 wonderful villages of the Luberon: Bonnieux, Lacoste and Goult.

Bonnieux
has all the amenities you need: bakeries, stores, cafes and excellent restaurants as well as the very picturesque Friday morning market.

Goult
is also very well served by restaurants and its Cafe de la Poste, and is one of the hidden gems of the Luberon. Lacosteis a perfectly preserved medieval village, home to the notorious Marquis de Sade's castle, with few amenities but plenty of atmosphere.

Close by are other beautiful, perched, hilltop villages: Gordes, Roussillon, Oppede le vieux, Menerbes, etc. all within 15 minutes. There is a market in a neighbouring village every day of the week.

From Bonnieux you are by the cleft in the Luberon mountain that gives you access to the south side: more gorgeous villages like Lourmarin, Cucuron, Ansouis and Cadenet to explore, 20 minutes away, and beyond these, the fine city of Aix en Provence. The Cote d'Azur is 2 hours away.

To the west, within an hour or so are Avignon, St Remy, Mont Ventoux, Les Baux de Provence, Orange, Arles, and the Rhone wine trail.
