LOFT-LIKE LIVING ATOP LUBERON VILLAGE: EXQUISITE VIEWS FROM EVERY WINDOW

Bonnieux House Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 4-6, 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, terrace and garden

'Wow' is the reaction we most often get from visitors to our newly-renovated several hundred year-old stone house perched at the very top of the medieval village of Bonnieux. The geographic location itself is unparallelled. We are in the village within walking distance to everything and yet at the same time, you feel like you're in the open countryside with 360 degree exquisite aerial views. Nine windows, as well as a large glass sliding door which disappears into the wall when open, face south over and out on the charming terracotta tiled roofs below, the green/blue hues of the Luberon mountains directly opposite and its beautiful, tranquil valley expanding into the distance all around us. Light and airy all the day long, the house is treated to spectacular sunsets at twilight and later on, we have the stars, the moon and the twinkling lights of the Luberon.

Our home has all the charm of the old, and all the function of the new. It's aesthetically pleasing both inside and out - contemporary yet classic. We are also sheltered from the infamous Mistral wind, so we get the deep blue skies it blows in but not the incessant gusts which drive some mad! The house has an attached one-car garage as well as parking on the cobblestoned- street in front.

The entry-level hallway has its original stone floor as does separate WC with toilet with sink and the beautiful airy glass bathroom across the hall with incredible views, great overhead shower and tub as well as washer/dryer. Bedroom 1 with wood floor and kingsize bed and Bedroom 2 with a twin-bed mezzanine are also on this floor.

A beautiful hanging stone staircase with glass bannisters (baby gate on request) opens onto the main floor - an open rectangular loft-like airy Living Area with wood floor and beams, finished stone wall and large L-shaped couch, fireplace, stereo, etc. At the top of the stairs is a small hallway leading to a third bedroom with a mezzannine queen-size loft bed and its own bathroom (Italian shower, sink+toilet)

At the other end of the spacious Living Area, down 3 small steps is the large open kitchen with polished-cement floor, induction stove-top, combined vapor oven, dishwasher, Fridge/freezer and eating area with table and chairs. The kitchen allows for indoor/outdoor living as it opens onto a shaded terrace through a large sliding glass door which disappears into the wall when fully open.

Up another 5 steps from the terrace is grassy garden with a stone shed built into the natural rock-face which stretches up to reveal the 12th-century church with it's beautifully sculpted limestone Madonna protectively gazing down.

You enter the house through a lovely stone arch with a gate leading to a shared passageway and courtyard.The back of the house( 5 more windows!) also looks out on this charming sunny courtyard.

This is a truly a magical place. We know, because we've lived and raised our kids here for more than ten years. We highly recommend it!

The property is wonderful. This is our 2nd stay.

  • 5 of 5
The views and location of this property are fabulous. If anything, the photos of the house understate how great it is. The use of the garage is a very big plus in this small village where parking can be a challenge. The kitchen is well equipped and great for preparing meals. Eating on the patio is a delight. Overall, we thing the house is the best and hope to stay there again in the future. Several very good restaurants in the village.

Nestled at 1400 feet above the Luberon's National Park, Bonnieux is truly one of the most impressive, beautiful and alive villages of the Luberon.

From the 12th century church and the exquisite, wind-sculpted cedar trees which protect it, are 360 degrees of breathtaking views of the Luberon Mountain range including Provence's highest peak, the Mont Ventoux. Also on offer, are the Chateaux of the Marquis de Sade perched atop the village of Lacoste just opposite, and the beautiful surrounding valley - filled with cherry trees, vineyards, poppies and lavender. Topping it off, a gorgeous 600 acre cedar forest which runs along the summit, a welcome source of cool air in the summer months.

With a year-round population, this fortified village which was once a Templar stronghold and also belonged at one time to the Pope, is one of the most thriving in the area. With two churches, two bakeries and a bakery museum, a butcher, a grocery, a tabac, a pharmacy, a cultural center&library, tennis and boule courts, and a variety of restaurants, cafes, art galleries and shops you don't need any more.

But If you want it, the villages of Lacoste, Menerbes (yes, made more famous by Peter Mayle) Goult, Roussilon, Gordes, Oppede le Vieux and Saignon and the towns of Apt, Cavaillon and Coustellet are all within ten square miles. So too is the Pont Julien (a roman bridge built in the 3rd century BC and crossed by Julius Casear himself), the town of Buoux (a rock-climbing mecca dominated by its old fort which was once a refuge in the Middle Ages), The Abbaye of Senanque ( a 12th century Cistercian abbey framed in lavender just under the village of Gordes), the famous rust-colored Ocre of Roussillon. And dotting the landscape evrywhere are Bories, the left-over stone dwellings of the the Gauls .

Further afield is the antique-lovers paradise of Isle-sur-la Sorgue. And Marseille, Aix-en-Provence, St. Remy, Arles and Avignon are a little less or a little more than an hour away.

The area is nothing short of marvelous. Chill out and do nothing or bike and hike, enjoy nature, eat, drink and be merry, visit museums specializing in everything from corkscrews, bread and truffles, take in the best of the local artisanery, or a trip back in time. The history here is incredibly rich, stretching back to the Neolithic and encompassing everything there on in from the Ancient Romans (the Appian way comes right through Bonnieux) through to the Medieval right up Resistance movement of WWII and beyond.

There is something for everyone. Enjoy!
