Overview

Bonnieux Apartment Rental Photos and Description

4 Sleeping 1 Bathroom, 1 Bedroom Apartment Close To Everything

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 walls made with old Provence stones. The whole place has been restored with ancient and new materials.

It is close to every activities in Bonnieux (restaurants, markets....)

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

There are 2 levels leading one to another by little stairs.

One bathroom (washbasin and shower with hand held shower) and WC.

On top floor there is the bedroom (queen size bed) with large laundry cupboard and the bathroom.

Downstairs is the living room/kitchen with everything to cook and enjoy a meal.

There is a sofa (you can convert in a 2 sleep-bed) to enjoy evening reading.

There is an optionnal garden (for €50 or €100/week depending on when you are coming), in which you can enjoy breakfast or an evening glass of wine/dinner, nested in the ancient stones.

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

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.

About 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 apartment in 1970

Why Historical Apartment chose Bonnieux

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

If you want comfort it's not here. No wifi, no hairdryer, no washer.. Two thin towels to last a week isn't enough for me especially if you can't wash them. The apartment could use a good cleaning as there were many cobwebs and floor was not clean. Bring EVERYTHING you need. It's a place to sleep but not much more.

Owner's Response: Dear guests What can we say except this a pretty unfair review. It seems to me that I'm pretty available on email (even by phone, my mother or myself) to get informed about anything wrong. If people lacked towels, why shouldn't I've been contacted for this issue? If we don't know what's wrong, we can't help... Guests should know that we always have a friend of we personnally on site to help in case of any need. Regarding "dirt", this is not "dirt", this is dust which falls from 12th century stones and which, unfortunately, can't be prevented. We always leave the apartment perfectly clean and some thin quantities of dust may fall during the period of you stay along the walls, without being really bothering or dirty. Anyway, if this was a major issue we would have made some cleaning for free...but once again we weren't aware of this because guest did not contact us during their stay... There is no washing machine and no wifi, yes...but this is written on the description and we feel sorry not being responsible for the whole organization of our guests' stay. There is free wifi at a café at ONE minute walking... If this was so important, why didn't they choose another house? I should also remember that our appartment is only 65€ per day, with a private courtyard. The apartment is 50 square meeters. What our guest suggest in fact is that they needed an hotel. This is an apartment rental. There is quite a difference regarding services offerred. An hotel would have been at least 100€ with no exterior for a 15meters bedroom... However, I should once again remind our guests that were are always fully available to make them comfortable and we would have done anything in this way if we had been aware of troubles. Bonnieux remains in countryside, there is a garden next to the apartment and it is quite impossible to prevent bugs coming in and out, especially in a 12th century house. However this remains quite a rare event and we cannot say this is a real animal invasion... If it lacked some ustensils, towels, cooking tools or anything, my mother would have brought them with pleasure. Our guests always underline her kindness and hospitality and she is willing to help anytime of day (she took some guests in the middle of the night to the hospital last year). Really, pretty unfair comment which make us feel really sad compared to the energy we always put in making your stay a great moment.
