About Catrin Thomas

I live in Sydney with my husband and family. I am originally from Wales, in the UK. I came to Australia in 2002 to travel, and never left !

Catrin Thomas purchased this chateau / country house in 2009

Why Catrin Thomas chose Bonnieux

I have always loved France, and speak fluent French. We were on holiday in the Luberon 4 years ago and had been thinking about buying a house. On one rather impulsive Sunday afternoon, we bought 'La Bastide'. We fell in love with the house, the Luberon, and it reconnects us to Provence and to France even when we live so far away.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

We authentically restored La Bastide, working with local tradesman who know how to keep the enchanting charm of this beautiful house, whilst adding modern luxuries. I bought every piece of furniture in the house, some from the antique markets in Paris and some in the local region. The house makes a wonderful place to explore or it can be the place you never leave and just relax completely. Our guests, our friends and our family fall in love with the house, and many local friends say that it is perhaps the best house in the whole region.

The house is run by a house manager and house keeper who both live locally and both speak fluent English and French. The house will of course be prepared for your arrival and for each week of your stay 6 hours of cleaning is also included. The gardener also comes once a week.

Our house manager is able to organise most things that you would make your stay perfect including a chef at home, nanny's and babysitting, spa treatments, horse riding, golf, booking restaurants and advising on local activities such as visiting markets.

Beauty and relaxation in the hills

  • 5 of 5
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in this lovely house set in the hills of the Luberon Valley. Settle in for the week. Wake up each morning, venture to Bonnieux for pastries then enjoy them out by the pool while you watch the valley wake up beneath you. Drive to the market at L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue to buy food for the week and treasures for your loved ones back home. As the evening descends, watch for the lights of nearby Lacoste to appear--you'll hike there from Bonnieux the next morning and delight in getting lost. Make sure to enjoy a catered meal in the house--Brigitt makes a mean Soup Pistou. And if you don't know what to do, Sally knows--just ask.
