Bastide de Bonnieux - Garden

Garden & Pool

The garden is a beautifully tended 3000 sq.m. and everywhere is the magnificent view down the length of the Luberon valley, the Luberon mountain on one side, and the Monts de Vaucluse and Mont Ventoux on the other. The village of Lacoste is opposite and beautiful at night when it is lit up, while the villages of Gordes, Menerbes and Roussillon are also visible.

 

The pool with sunloungers and poolhouse.

The pool is 12m x 3m (40 x 10ft) and has a pool alarm for security. The poolhouse has a small summer kitchen, with sink and fridge, barbecue, as well as shower and WC.

 

Dining table with view on the top terrace.

The top terrace along the front of the house takes in the full view, with an outdoor dining table by the kitchen.

 

The garden is planted with the best colours and scents of Provence and the Mediterranean - olive trees, lavender, santolina, rosemary, wisteria, cypress, fig and fruit trees.

 

Beneath the pool level is the lawn.

Beneath the pool level the garden is lawned and enclosed with a stone wall.

 

 

The house faces west, to give not just the amazing view but every night the the long, spectacular sunset.


Up timeworn steps, the front door. The house in its verdant setting.

The bastide has a gated entrance and parking for several cars. It is on a very quiet country road used only by residents, and is a haven of calm. The point of contact for any advice or problems is a bi-lingual English couple.
