We do not have a garage, but it is very easy to park in the street. Guests are required to leave € 80 (or € 60 if you bring your own sheets) in the house before you leave for the maid. The spiral staircase inside the house and the stairs to the lower terrace present a certain danger for young children and a problem for people with reduced mobility.

Quirky house with brilliant outdoor space

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 very enjoyable weeks in Bonnieux. The house is a traditional village house, tucked away in the jumble of houses that make up the village. The accommodation is split over 3 levels, with the 2 bedrooms on the first floor, lounge and kitchen on the ground floor with the shower room, loo and washing machine in the basement. As the whole village clings to the side of a hill, each side of the ground and first floors are on a slightly different level.

For us, the best aspect of the house was the outside space. There are 3 terraces, each on slightly different levels. The first, outside the front door, is fully shaded by the house in the morning and the vine growing over the trellis gives dappled shade for the rest of the day - most welcome when the temperature gets into the mid thirties!! It looks roughly west, along the flank of the Luberon, and catches the breeze/wind. The other 2 terraces, accessed via steps, catch more sun and less wind. Although the Mistral wasn't blowing strongly during our visit the lower terrace should be quite sheltered from it.

The house is a little more cluttered than the photos suggest, with a lot of stuff around the house and in the cupboards. This does rather restrict the space, for example in the kitchen there isn't much space to stow away your groceries. However this has the advantage that the house comes with the best equipped kitchen I have ever come across in a holiday rental. Being a tea lover I appreciated the kettle and teapot (quite unusual in a Continental rental), there are a range of pots, pans, kitchen gadgets and ovenproof dishes, and (in my experience exceptional) the kitchen knives were of good quality and sharp.

Bonnieux is a lovely village, and benefits from a weekly market, 2 bakers, a reasonably priced mini supermarket and an excellent butcher. Do visit the local cave co-operative, they have a wide range of excellent wines. Domaine de la Verrière and Chateau Canorgue are also worth a visit. The Flambé does great pizzas, Heure Bleue by Yoha and Le Fournil are both great places to eat.

Do contact Peter, we had a great time and would recommend this rental to friends.

Beautiful house, great lovation

  • 5 of 5

You can park your car below or above this lovely old house, and walk to everywhere with ease. Lots of stairs, but then it's Bonnieux where stairs and steep streets are a fact of life. If stairs are a problem, you may prefer a place in the valley. We found the house clean and well appointed, with everything we needed for comfort and enjoyment.

We enjoyed the nearby bakery, the Friday market, Andre's restaurant on top of the hill, a walk to the bories, visits to mearby towns, and just walking around.

We would definitely recommend this property to friends or relatives.

Schöne Ferien im Luberon

  • 4 of 5

Ein schönes Haus im Herzen des schönen Bonnieux. Das Haus liegt ziemlich zentral, aber dennoch ruhig. Es ist sehr gut eingerichtet, man hat alles was man braucht. Auf der Terrasse unter dem Wein haben wir unsere Mahlzeiten gemacht und dabei einen wunderschönen Ausblick genossen.

Parken könnte man direkt neben dem Haus auf der Strasse, aber es gibt auch genug öffentliche Parkplätze, die gar nicht so weit von dem Haus sind.

Zwei Bäckereien und ein Fleischer, und auch ein kleiner Supermarkt (der auch viele regionale Produkte bietet) sind in 5 Minuten zu Fuß zu erreichen.

Fazit - es war ein sehr schöner Urlaub im gemütlichen Haus im wunderschönen Ort.

Beau logement de caractère dans un cadre délicieux

  • 4 of 5

Parmi les villages perchés du Lubéron, Bonnieux a notre préférence : moins couru que Ménerbes, Oppède ou Lacoste, ce village plein de charme avec ses maisons anciennes, ses ruelles, ses escaliers, ses passages voûtés vit toute l'année (nombreux commerces et restaurants) et a su garder une certaine authenticité. Dans ce cadre adorable, tout près des commerces mais accessible seulement à pied, jouissant ainsi d'une parfaite tranquillité, se trouve la maison de Peter Oliver, accrochée a la colline. La vue sur le Lubéron et la campagne à ses pieds y est superbe. Qu'on se rassure, il est possible de garer une voiture à moins de 50 m.

Dans le jardin fleuri, deux terrasses ont été aménagées, à deux niveaux différents, permettant de profiter du soleil et de la vue en toute discrétion.

L'intérieur, lumineux, présente le charme d'une authentique maison de village avec son escalier tournant débouchant sur différents niveaux. La décoration est faite avec goût. La maison est accueillante et très bien équipée.

Amoureux du pays et amateurs de balades, de lecture, de découvertes culturelles et d'une cuisine basée sur les excellents produits locaux y compris quelques vins remarquables, nous y avons passé une excellente semaine en mai dernier et recommandons chaleureusement cet endroit merveilleux.

Ein besonderer Ort mit grossem Charme

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben 10 Tage Familienferien in diesem wunderbaren Haus in Bonnieux mit unseren drei erwachsenen Kindern verbracht. Das Haus und seine Inneneinrichtung waren in sehr gutem Zustand:

- sehr sauber und ordentlich,

-die Küche ist perfekt ausgestattet, und es bereitet Freude dort zu kochen,

- die Terrasse mit ihrer Weinlaube ist auch an heissen Sommertagen ein wunderbarer Ort, um gemeinsame Mahlzeiten zu geniessen. Der Ausblick ist atemberaubend. Die beiden unteren Terrassen sind im Sommer vor allem morgens und abends zu empfehlen,

- die Einkaufsmöglichkeiten im Dorf sind leicht zu erreichen und von guter lokaler Qualität geprägt.

Bonnieux ist eines der malerischsten Dörfer im Luberon, wenn nicht in der Provence überhaupt.

Da wir unsere Fahrräder mitgebracht hatten, konnten wir die Umgebung mit dem Rad (bzw. e-bike) erkunden. Die vielen kleinen Strassen bieten ausgezeichnete Möglichkeiten für schöne, sichere Radtouren. Die herrliche Landschaft, die Wochenmärkte und die Weingüter konnten so besonders intensiv erlebt werden. Beeindruckend ist auch das vielfältige kulturelle Angebot in der Gegend um Bonnieux:

- Gordes

- Abbaye de Senanque

- Chateau de Lourmarin mit seinem Festival

- Piano Festival von La Roque d'Anthéron, etc.

Umfangreiche Materialien zu Radtouren, Wanderwegen sowie Freizeit- und Kulturangeboten liegen im Haus bereit.

Das Haus ist perfekt für bis zu 4 Erwachsene (oder für 5 Personen inkl. Kinder). Für 5 Erwachsene kann das Haus bei schlechtem Wetter etwas eng werden. Das war aber für uns im August kein Thema.

Ma propre expérience :communication difficile

  • 2 of 5

Maison mignonne et bien située mais la communication avec le propriétaire est assez compliquée (pas de contrat, pas d'adresse mail ) . C'est la première fois que je rencontre autant de difficultés notamment pour le remboursement de la caution.

Dommage !
