The Owner purchased this mas in 2005
We fell in love with this house because of its location in an exceptional nature site
Also note the quietness, the fact that it is not overlooked and the majestic beauty of the farmhouse itself.
The history of this farmhouse is interesting. This huge 7-acre estate sheltered an 18th century farmhouse and 2 15th century dry stone huts that the former Mayor of Bonnieux, general practitioner of the village, majestically renovated while preserving the typical character of the Provencal building.
Just like him we added our own touch while renovating this farmhouse in a functional, harmonious and uncluttered way. The colours change during the day and with the seasons. The indoor colours are warm and relaxing and the site has a magic cachet that all the people who came to the farmhouse for an hour, a day or a week immediately felt in a significant and intense way. We also have been seduced by this cachet that is ideal for daydream and relaxation which take us away from our daily life.
Farmhouse with character in the nature park of the cedar forest in an exceptional protected site at the foot of the Luberon on 7 acres of garden and forest. It is an ideal place to recharge your battery in the middle of nature
Reflecting on our amazing time at this perfect property is just like a dream. Anyone who gets the chance to stay here will never regret it. Every aspect of this house delivered, the rooms were spacious and had their own bathroom, the living areas were optimal for hanging out and connecting, the outside area for eating was bug free and ideal for large parties. Everything was clean and functional. The pool was especially perfect for our kids. The seating area near the pool offered great night time wine and stars. Rose the owner was prompt if I needed anything and response within the same day. We highly recommend this place especially for large groups. We were a group of 18 and it was extremely comfortable. We hope to return over and over to this paradise.
Our group of 18 were celebrating a 50th birthday. Our total surprise when we arrived at this magical place and all the incredible details and comforts that Rose suppled were like a fairytale. The property was well kept, the rooms all comfortable and having own bathrooms for large group was exceptional. We received 5 star service from all the staff and were delighted by all the nooks and crannies of places to just be together, near pool, in the garden, dinners outside, kids loved the place as well. We would highly recommend this to anyone who wants top notch location and superb comfortable and gorgeous setting as well as divine spacious home.. Thank you Rose you have a wonderful property, it is with sincere gratitude to you and your home that we had such a wonderful stay.
Our American family of 16, ages 20-62, rented this fabulous villa for a week in early summer. The villa was well-equipped, a lovely mix of traditional Provencal with modern comforts, and spacious. But the grounds were the really special aspect. Situated in this beautiful nature preserve, the grounds featured beautiful gardens, hiking trails, large swimming pool, hot tub, petanque court, ping-pong table, outside barbeque, inside and outside eating areas, old stone ruins, and wonderful views of the villages of Bonnieux and Lacoste from some of the villa rooms. It was easy driving distance to nearby villages (walking distance from Bonnieux) as well as to Aix-en-Provence, Avignon, and Chateau-neuf-de-Pape. We also took a hot air balloon ride in nearby Roussillon.
I highly recommend this property as either a base from exploring Provence or a place to relax amid the quaint villages of the Luberon mountains. I only wish we had booked for two weeks so we could do both more fully! Rose was very helpful in connecting us to the hot air balloon pilot and to Edith, a local chef who prepared our first night dinner and did a cooking class mid-week for us at the villa.
I've just returned from a week's stay with a group of 14, and without exception, we were delighted. The public areas are comfortable and ooze charm. The bedrooms and bathrooms are lovely and comfortable, particularly those on the main level that open onto the portico. The kitchen is well stocked for any type of cooking. The grounds are endlessly magical with space for dreaming, wandering, sports, or just watching the moon over the mountains. Rose and Eric met us upon arrival and could not have been more delightful or accommodating. The property was an ideal base for walking into Bonnieux or exploring the neighboring villages, and we did quite a bit of both. I will definitely be back. In fact, I can't wait! I LOVE this area of the Luberon and am thrilled to have a home base.
I stayed with a group of 17 friends for a weekend at the house and I cannot fault Rose and Eric. Nothing was too much trouble and they helped make our stay so enjoyable. Any questions I had regarding the stay Rose promptly responded and provided many suggestions. She and her husband went out of their way to accommodate some of our requests. Without their help our stay would not have been half as what it was. Every single person from my group commented on how accommodating they had been. The house is absolutely stunning and the photos do not do it justice, we are already discussing when we can come back for a second visit. Thank you Rose and Eric for everything you did before, during and after our stay. Katie
This house is located close but far enough away from town so that we could enjoy total privacy and enjoyment for our family vacation. This is indeed a five star facility. There is nothing that has not been considered and provided. If anyone that stays here is not satisfied then they would not be pleased anywhere. The house, grounds, gardens, pool and spa areas are all very well maintained. Our family of 12--ages 7-83 all considered that this made for an absolutely wonderful vacation stay.
In Bonnieux in the Luberon, you are in the heart of Provence
You have a wide choice of excursions and good deals
First of all, visit the most beautiful villages of France starting with Bonnieux and its unique views of Mont Ventoux but also Lacoste which is famous for its Château du Marquis de Sade, Gordes which is a famous medieval village, Roussillon which is the small Colorado, Saignon and its rock, Oppède-le-Vieux, Cucuron, Lourmarin and many others like Isle-sur-la-Sorgue which is famous for its second-hand shops and its antiques.
Around 20 km away, you can discover natural sites such as Fontaine-de-Vaucluse, the Rustrel Ochre, the Dentelles de Montmirail but also mythical towns such as Avignon and its Cité des Papes, Orange and Vaison-la-Romaine for their antique theatre.
Hidden in the Vaucluse Gorge, you will discover the Sénanque Abbey
Further South, in the Alpilles: Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, birthplace of Nostradamus, Eygalières and its site and the Château des Baux-de-Provence.
On the other shore of the Rhône, you can also discover the Pont du Gard, perfectly preserved Roman viaduct.
Further South: the town of Arles and its Colosseum arena, our beautiful Mediterranean Sea with Marseille and the Calanques (rocky inlets) of Cassis at less than 50 miles (1 hour drive)
The many beaches of the Var and the Côte d’Azur are ideal for relaxation and for their landscape
Some good addresses where you can enjoy great food:
l'Arôme in Bonnieux
Le Fournil in Bonnieux
La Coquillade in Apt
La Terrasse in Goult
Le petit café in Oppède-le-Vieux
Restaurant de l'Horloge in Cucuron
Le Saint André à Bonnieux
Tennis, soccer, horse riding and biking in Bonnieux
Nearby golf course in Saumane
Bike rides on the roads of the Tour de France, Mont Ventoux, canoeing in Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, hikes in the cedar forest surrounding the house and climbing in the mountains of the Vaucluse and the Luberon.
The region is famous for its Côte du Rhône, Gigondas, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Ventoux and Luberon wines. We recommend you certain vineyards and wine cellars such as La Citadelle which is one of the most famous cellars in Ménerbes and Aureto in Roussillon.
The region is mythical for the Tour de France lovers because you can see the Mont Ventoux, famous mountain stop-over of this circuit. As for the Luberon, it delights young and old hikers and climbers.
The Luberon is appreciated for its perched villages, its exceptional sunshine, its Mediterranean scents and the song of birds and cicadas at night.
Its Provencal gastronomy attracts the experts and hedonists (truffles, lavender honey, tapenade, olive oil, wine, alcohol, etc.)
The region is also famous for its art and antique markets that attracts tourists from all over the world (Isle-sur-la-Sorgue).
We cannot talk about the Luberon without talking about its local markets in the villages whose origin dates back to Middle Ages.
The Vaucluse, and particularly the Luberon, is a land to discover because it was difficult to access for a long time. It is only since the 70’s, thanks to the development of infrastructures, that the region opened itself to tourists and artists without losing its nature character and the secret that make it an exceptional place.
The places that we appreciate the most are the following:
Perched villages including Bonnieux, Gordes, Lacoste, Ménerbes, Lourmarin and Roussillon
The Rustrel Ochre
The small Colorado
Avignon and the Cité des Papes
Cassis and its calanques (rocky inlets)
Aix-en-Provence and Marseille
Arles and Orange
Bike rides, hikes in the cedar forest and on the marked paths as well as climbing in the mountains of the Luberon and the Vaucluse are also very pleasant.
It is very interesting and pleasant to visit the cellars and vineyards whether it is the offered tastings or the original explanations of the passionate and outgoing guides.
If you are interested in the fauna and flora, it is an interesting region that will delight the fishermen and hunters.
The noble and wild Mediterranean Sea along the coasts of the Var is very romantic
You can also go canoeing in Isle-sur-la-Sorgue
Note that Isle-sur-la-Sorgue has also many antique shops offering items that are interesting for their history but also for their beauty and rarity. All budgets will be satisfied because, even if the quality is present, you will find some items for very affordable prices while strolling from shops to shops or from boutiques to stands.
Finally, the Provencal markets are a pleasure for the eye and the palate and have been preserved as such since Middle Ages, when we used to sell things in the street and not in aseptic standard shopping centres.
