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.
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.
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.
Many activities are available. Please feel free to ask us about Luberon secrets...
