|Minimum Stay||7 - 14 nights|
In this beautiful provencal countryside, at the foot of the Luberon mountain, this old farm is situated on a 12 acres land, at the front of a little wooded hill.
This will be an ideal base for exploration of famous little villages, local markets and trekking on the many tracks.
All rooms have been renovated trying to keep the atmosphere of an ancient family home. However, all equipment is according to modern standards your may expect.
This authenticity is such that some of our regular visitor have declared this place their "family home" where they gather for special occasions.
We just loved this place! The house was spacious, clean, light - 4 full bedrooms and 2 full baths with great showers. The kitchen was a dream - we prepared several meals there with food we bought in town and at the local markets. As another reviewer mentioned, everything was very high quality, from the appliances down to the cutlery...I wanted to stay forever! It is so peaceful - I have never seen that many stars at night! We did not meet the owner Didier, but we communicated by text and telephone with no problem. Roger, who I believe lives on the premises, was there to welcome us and show us around the home. We found it with no problem using Google Maps (not sure that we would have otherwise...). We wanted a remote spot to get away, but somewhere that would be a good start for day trips around the area. Perfect! Except that we loved the town of Bonnieux so much that we didn't want to go anywhere else! All the local people were friendly and helpful, and there are great restaurants there. We especially loved l'Arome. We did make several day trips, to L'Isle sur la Sorgue (a nice town but it was pouring rain so we didn't really get to do much), Lourmarin, Menerbes and Lacoste....all very close and all charming. We loved the Friday market in Bonnieux - a great spot to pick up last-minute souvenirs and gifts, like handmade soaps, lavender sachets, gorgeous olive wood spoons, cutting boards, etc., delicious food items, and of course local cheese, bread and vegetables. We visited several wineries and tasting rooms in the area....All of us are wine lovers, and we were amazed at the value of the local wine...so delicious and so inexpensive! So yes, we loved it all! Next time we will definitely stay longer...five days in heaven was not nearly enough!
Cette ferme qui a appartenue a la meme famille pour six generations a une ame. On se sent tout de suite chez soi. La propriete a gardee tout son carcatere tout en repondant aux besoins de notre vie moderne. La grande cuisine est tres bien amenagee ainsi que la salle de sejour avec sa grande cheminee qui nous rechauffe quand le soirees sont fraiches.
Ce mas est situe au milieu des vignobles, des champs de coquelicots et des champs de lavande qui l'on voit bleuir un peu plus de jour en jour.
Bonnieux est a 5 kilometres et on peut voir le soir les lumieres qui s'allument une par une sur la colline. Tout autour les montagnes du Luberon nous offrent un spectacle qui change du matin avec la brume et le soir avec le soleil couchant qui enflame les collines.
De nombreux petits villages pittoresques sont a decouvrir anisi que les marches provencaux.
Ce mas est spacieux. C'est un paradis pour ceux qui cherchent la serenite.
Les proprietaires sont extremement acueillants et font tout ce qui est necessaire pour rendre votre sejour memorable.
J'espere bien y revenir.
After arriving in France we spent five nights in Paris before training to Avignon, picking up a car and driving towards Bonnieux. We had made our selection long before coming to France. This property was nicely situated in the countryside but still in walking distance to Bonnieux. We were not disappointed. As we drove up to this magnificent house we were greeted by a smiling and generous host. Not only was there a welcoming basket including bread, fruit, wine and beer, but the property far exceeded our expectations. We even had our first evening meal prepared for us. It was spotlessly clean and roomy with a modern kitchen, laundry etc. Great attention to detail has been made, with high quality furnishing, linen,crockery and cutlery. The kitchen was a dream to work in, with a brand new stove and oven.
Our stay from mid-spring to early summer allowed us to see this amazing area transform. We watched lavender fields burst into flower, vineyards go from budding to full growth and cherries ripen for the picking. Walking up the lane in the evenings to pick cherries and look at the lavender was a highlight. We walked all around Bonnieux, visited all the surrounding hill top villages and local markets. There were two quality vineyards within a few kilometres of the house. Coustellet's market each Sunday was a highlight. This property is so special that we soon felt at home and really did begin to feel that it was our very own. All four bedrooms are large with outstanding views up to Bonnieux. It was truly a stay of a lifetime, something very special to us and something we will never forget and cherish forever. While there we welcomed four groups of friends who stayed from two days to two weeks. They too loved this property, it's tranquility and it's open surroundings. We really can't speak too highly of this great house and it's owners.
Mas de caractère idéalement situé à proximité de très jolis villages. Belle vue panoramique sur le Lubéron, Bonieux et le château de Lacoste. Senteurs de lavande, calme, soleil, bref une région exceptionnelle à découvrir. Accueil chaleureux (presque familial) des propriétaires qui mettent tout leur coeur pour vous faire passer un séjour inoubliable dans ce gîte très bien équipé. Que du bonheur...
Un départ difficile mais nous ne manquerons pas de revenir.
Encore merci aux propriétaires pour leur grande sympathie.
Un endroit ou le temps s'arrête, la Paix et la sérénité sont au rendez vous... Pour des vacances en famille ou entre amis devant un champs et une vue sur Bonnieux.. Le repos, les balades,le marché. Le soir le Château du Marquis de Sade à Lacoste nous regarde tout illuminé, que du bonheur.... La propriétaire est une femme adorable nous avons l'impression d'être chez nous.
