The Location


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

If you want to spend a week or more immersed in the life of a beautiful Provence village, the location could not be better. Within two minute's walk are the bakeries, stores, cafes and excellent restaurants of the village, from simple to Michelin-starred.

Bonnieux is stunning 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. Bonnieux 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.

Close by are other beautiful, perched, hilltop villages: Gordes, Roussillon, Lacoste, Oppede le vieux, Menerbes, Goult, etc. all within 15 minutes.

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.

Highly recommended!

Bonnieux is one of these picturesque old villages on the top of hills that characterize the Provencal landscape. I would not be surprised to hear that this house is 250 years old or even more. However, it is beautifully modernized inside, yet keeping the original structure and using appropriate materials faithful to the past. It now offers all facilities you could desire. On top there is a lovely terrace overlooking the valley and the hills beyond. Within few miles you find many similar villages, each with its own history and monuments from the past, and the old township of Apt with many specialized shops, several supermarkets and a large weekly market. And do not forget the nearby ceder forest where the Wind carries a scent of Provencal herbs. Highly recommended!

Tranquility in Bonnieux

We loved every minute we stayed here, sadly not as much time spent at home as we should as so much to explore and see despite this being my 5th trip to the Luberon. THE HIGHLIGHTS: Waking at dawn to the bird chorus coming up out of the forested valley below our ever open window, especially the robins. The quirky house, all the steps and four floors. Stunning vistas from every loo with a view. The water pressure in the lower shower (never tried the top one) Pipping hot water! THE BALCONY, which was the reason I booked the house. The generous table up there, the colourful umbrella and the comfortable loungers. The aerial display by the swifts. The ease of parking, we always found close parking on the road below. The village of Bonnieux, its central location to everywhere in the Luberon. The friendliness of everyone we encountered in the village. The joy of walking through the door each time we returned from somewhere, even if only to buy croissants. Everything in the house operated perfectly. The speedy internet. We would definitely stay there again.

A Charming House In Bonnieux

We spent a delightful week in this charming cottage in the lovely old village of Bonnieux. The property was just as described, furnished very tastefully in keeping with its old cottage character and had everything we needed. Its position on the hillside gave wonderful views over the wooded valleys of the Luberon and, at the time we were there, an opportunity to watch bee-eaters gliding around just in front of the windows and roof terrace. The village itself was was a delightful example of Luberon hilltop communities with many small roads and alleyways to explore, (inevitably there is limited parking but it's a small price to pay for the old charm atmosphere!). There was a good selection of restaurants and small shops, including a small supermarket where we could get everything we needed. Christine, the owner, was most helpful both during the booking process and while we were at the property, responding very promptly to any queries we had. This was an ideal property for us to explore the Luberon from on our first visit to the area. It rates as one of the very best among many cottages we have stayed in and we would certainly recommend it to any friends and relatives thinking of visiting this part of France. Thanks again for a memorable holiday.
