LA SALLE DE GARDE, UNIQUE APARTMENT WITH BREATHTAKING VIEW

Bonnieux Castle Rental Photos and Description

Castle, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Newly refurbished apartment in the Stronghold of Bonnieux (at the time of Avignon popes) situated in the remparts of Bonnieux. This is a unique place with 12th century vaults and walls made with old Provence stones. The whole place has been restored with ancient materials and has retained its original features including exposed beams and tiled floors. The whole apartment has an astonishing view on the Luberon.

Temperature is ideal any time of year thanks to 2 meter-thick walls.

Car parking is very easy, just in front of the entrance.

Large Terrace with chairs and table to enjoy summer late sunset and breathtaking landscape.

Very calm place, ideal to enjoy pleasures of the Luberon, getting some rest, sightseeing of the several perched villages of the Luberon (Lacoste, Roussillon, Gordes, Menerbes... are all at maximum 15 minutes by car).

The apartment is within a 5-minute walk to a bakery, butcher, grocery as well as typical quaint Provençal stores and antique shops.

There are lots of classical music concerts you can enjoy in Bonnieux and the other villages.

Bonnieux also offers casual and top-of-the-line restaurants which are also within a walking distance of 5 minutes.

There is no such rental in the Luberon : what we offer here is a very unique way of living in an historic, authentic and preserved place.

And we will love to share it with you, since we welcome you personally on your arrival.

Historical Apartment

I am a French student in medicine, and my mother a former doctor too, passioned by the restoration of our house, history, art, music, nature and by the joy of making people discover the place we love, welcoming and sharing our experience and passion with people who have made the effort to come and discover our country.

Historical Apartment purchased this castle in 1970

My mother and I have a strong passion of the place, discovered by our parents and grand parents 40 years ago who have bought it as ruins and have put all their strengths in its restoration. This is a very special place of memory for us, a part of our history. Do not hesitate to ask us more about this history, this is a part of ourselves.

We like decorating, imagining, restorate the place. Enjoying the terrace and its calm. Seeing all our welcoming friends. We like music very much and go very often to lots of the concerts that this place offer in summer (Orange, piano international festival in La Roque D'antheron, Opera Festival in Aix en Provence...). We particularly love the calm of the place and all what it stands for in terms of remembrance and love of our family. This is a kind of shelter for us, since we live the major part of the year in Marseille, a one-million-inhabitant city on the Mediterranean shores.

AMAZING! The highlight of our French holiday.

My mother and I spent a wonderful week in this apartment in Bonnieux. As we did not have a car, we relied on trains and the local bus service to reach Bonnieux from Paris - a little complicated but not impossible. Upon arrival, it didn't take long for us to realise that our efforts were certainly well worth it. We were very warmly welcomed by the owner (with a huge bucket of fresh cherries from a friend's farm) and shown through the beautiful apartment. The history of the place is amazing (a 12th century stronghold built on top of cellars dating from the 6th century!) The antique furniture and vaulted ceilings are also beautiful. This is not to mention the view - hours can be spent on the deck or at the windows admiring the view across the valley. We also found the apartment to be very well-equipped, comfortable and spacious.

Prior to arrival, I was worried that there may not be enough to do to spend a week in Bonnieux, but it actually turned out to be a perfect length of stay. We hired electric bikes in the town and cycled (effortlessly) around the countryside. The village itself has a lovely welcoming but authentic feel. The surrounding regions offered a fantastic variety of hilltop villages, ancient ruins, farmer's markets and cedar forests.

The week we spent here was certainly the highlight of our French travels - a wonderful way to relax and have a holiday whilst also experiencing a different way of life. We would highly recommend this apartment.
