Overview

Bonnieux Apartment Rental Photos and Description

An amazing conversion of an old Police building into a luxury apartment

From the outside this is an imposing building with a rich history of accommodating officers of French law, but as you step into the beautiful reception area, be prepared for a surprise.

This two bedroom apartment is very spacious with king, queen or twin beds, well-equipped kitchen and large bathroom. Outside there's a large private terrace and shared used of the pool garden and gym.

No expense has been spared and as you'll see from the photos, the result is extremely successful. The style throughout the building is comfortable, modern and uncluttered. There is incredible attention to detail and where possible, the original features of the building have been retained and incorporated in the new design.

One of the biggest surprises is to find such a large pool, garden and private gym, hidden from view of the village. Again take a look at the photos to get an idea of the great views and privacy of this property.

The Region: The winding roads of the Luberon, with spectacular views, are great to explore and you'll find loads of picturesque villages (Gordes, Menerbes, Maubec) on the doorstep.

Just a short drive away there's a great Sunday morning market at Coustellet and the larger town of Apt is only 15 minutes away.

There's loads to do and see in the area; St Remy-de-Provence, famous for its Roman architecture, Les Baux with its ruined castle and unique rock formations, L'Isle sur la Sorgue, famous as an antique centre and market. Also within easy reach are Pont du Gard, Avignon with the Palace of the Popes, Marseille with its famous waterfront, the Amphitheatre at Nimes and the cultured avenues of Aix-en-Provence.

If activity is your thing, this area is perfect for climbing, cycling, mountain biking, trekking, golf, tennis and swimming.

The Village: The village of Bonnieux has a rich and varied history and is considered to be one of the most beautiful in the Luberon.

In summer the village is really popular and therefore has some great restaurants and cafés. Although not very big, it has some useful and interesting shops, including bakers, butchers, grocery, pharmacy, post office and tourist information centre. There's also a local market on a Friday.

To get there:

By Car - The village of Bonnieux lies just 10 minutes off the N99, 10 minutes east of Cavaillon.

By Air - Marseille and Nimes Airports are the nearest - approximately 50 minutes drive away

By Train - The high speed TGV service runs directly from London or Paris to Avignon, approximately 25 minutes away

Full directions, etc will be sent once you make a booking.

Most enjoyable

The fact that we were returning after staying here two years ago is probably recommendation enough. The apartment is fresh, clean, quiet, comfortable and close to the centre of the village. The owners were very helpful in arranging a taxi to bring us (non-drivers) from the closest bus stop at Le Pont Julien into Bonnieux – they were also very prompt with answering any email enquiries or bookings. We were pleased we made use of the (electric) bikes available for hire immediately below the apartment – certainly a different way to see the area surrounding the village. The supermarket, although small, had everything we needed, and is only minutes from the apartment. Ice creams, cakes and baguettes were all up to top French standards. We'd certainly be strongly tempted to go again.

A comfortable & historical apartment

Things I loved-
The position in beautiful Bonnieux, the historical links, such as the worn stone steps & the front door with its peephole etc. The pool was lovely in the warn weather. The excellent customer service from Claude on check in.
Things that would make the apartment even more comfortable.
Some better signage, no where could I find a sign with the Old Gendarmerie, we struggled to find the building.
Some instructions in English for cable TV & the coffee machine with many buttons &'the washing machines. The toilet down by the pool could be cleaned & supplied with toilet paper. Some more cutlery would be useful& some decent wine glasses are always nice. We did find the bedrooms very small but that is not uncommon in Europe. The floors looked they could do with a good scrub. However all that aside it was a comfortable apartment in a gorgeous town. I would stay here again

Cobblestoned Village...Picture Perfect Setting

  • 4 of 5
This was our first stay in an apartment abroad. We were enchanted by the space and the at-home feel. A comfortable apartment after a glorious day of sightseeing welcomed us. We loved whipping up breakfasts, snacks, picnic lunches, and suppers from our well-stocked, clean kitchen, ready-made supplies available at the local marché, épicerie, boulangerie, and pâtisserie. The views from each window graced us morning and evening. We spent our days exploring charming, neighboring villages, having extensively visited Provence's tourist highlights on previous trips. Our stay was the most enchanting and relaxing part of our month-long trip. We will travel again with Joie de Vivre!

Charming apartment in beautiful village

  • 5 of 5
Very comfortable, well decorated apartment with views over Luberon hills and sunny balcony in historic building. Everything we wanted in apartment - clean and in good working order. Even better than listing! In centre of Bonnieux and well located for day trips. Many good restaurants - our favourite was the Station restaurant just outside of town - full of locals. (Hard to find - ask at tourist office close to The Old Gendarmerie). Booking process very easy, all questions answered promptly and deposit return quickly. Very reasonable price for quality accommodation. Definitely looking forward to returning soon. Would highly recommend.
