Garden

Courtyard. Pool with Bonnieux in the background.

Outside the property is substantial, with 3.5 ha (8.6 acres) of land, going from the shelter of the courtyard, to the pool area, to lawn and meadow, vineyard, and even the wooded, terraced hill behind with its own private country walks. It's a microcosm of Provence countryside.

The pool's sliding cover disappears completely. Courtyard at night.

The courtyard offers shelter from wind, and maximises the view with an opening by the outdoor dining table, which is shaded by a pergola with climbing rose and wisteria.

The pool area also has great views over the surrounding countryside, the pool is 12m x 4m (39 x 13 ft) and has a motorised hard cover for security.

The Location

 
<

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

The house is 1 km (0.6 mile) from one of the best villages in Provence - Bonnieux, with its bakeries, stores, cafés and excellent restaurants, 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.

Stunning Stay / Impeccable service!

We booked this fantastic house for our entire family this summer for two weeks and our stay has been a truly incredible holiday. The house has an incredible charm and we immediately felt at home. All the rooms are very comfortable, and everything is practical. The service provided by the agency was impeccable and they were extremely helpful and reactive whenever we had a request. The location of the house was absolutely perfect, close enough to the wonderful village of Bonnieux ut very protected in a shrine of nature, with one of the most incredible views over the Provence, especially in the evening, when we would all enjoy the sunset. We definitely are looking forward to coming again next year!
