Experience village life in our Bonnieux apartment!

apartment trio
Enjoy your personal Luberon Experience in our newly-renovated apartment in the center of Bonnieux, one of the most beautiful, authentic, and livable year-round villages in Provence.  Our apartment will be available for weekly rentals beginning in April 2013.

Our family first visited Provence, the Luberon and the village of Bonnieux in 2003, and we’ve been spending several months a year in Bonnieux ever since. This special village has truly captured our hearts. We lived in Bonnieux for 6-1/2 months in 2004-2005 and base our Luberon Experience groups here. Now we finally have our own home in Bonnieux, a wonderful apartment in the best location in the village. We can’t be here year-round, so we’re offering our apartment to other travelers who want to experience the good life in the Luberon.

We’ve named our apartment “Bonheur en Bonnieux” (Happiness in Bonnieux), because that’s how we feel when we’re here. We hope you’ll feel that same sense of “bonheur” when you live for a week or more in our comfortable and well-equipped apartment and enjoy village life in this beautiful part of Provence.

Our 1000 square-foot apartment has two bedrooms and one bathroom and is ideal for solo travelers, couples, small groups of friends, and small families with older children. You’ll especially enjoy our large, well-equipped kitchen and the adjoining covered terrace where you can eat, relax, and observe life in Bonnieux.

This is a brand new rental, so there aren’t any reviews on the internet yet. But we’re well known for the tours we’ve been leading in Provence and other parts of Europe since 2006, and we’re committed to providing the same high quality of accommodation and service for our apartment.

The location

We think this is the very best location in the village!  Our apartment is located in the heart of Bonnieux on a tiny pedestrian street just below the main square. In less than five minutes you can easily walk to two boulangeries, the well-stocked village grocery store, the excellent butcher shop, the pharmacy, the post office and ATM, several artist galleries, and a variety of cafes and restaurants. On Friday mornings you’re just a few steps from Bonnieux’s welcoming weekly market, where you can shop for fresh fruits and vegetables, flowers, fish, honey, cheese, fabrics, clothes, arts and crafts, and more.

The apartment

Our apartment is mostly on one level, up a flight of steps from the front door. The apartment extends across two adjoining buildings and there are a few stairs on the main living level. The buildings are 200+ years old, but our apartment was completely renovated and decorated in 2012.

The apartment includes a living room, two bedrooms, a bathroom, a large kitchen, and a covered terrace. We have about 1000 square feet.

We’ve decorated our apartment in style that is comfortable and authentic. We’ve used our experience staying in more than 40 vacation rentals all over Europe to provide everything we think will enhance your stay in Provence. We love Provence and this is our part-time home, so you’ll find many special touches that aren’t typical in a vacation rental.

You’ll find much more about Bonnieux and the Luberon on our website.

We’d love to hear from you if you have questions or would like to book our apartment. The best way to reach us year-round is by email.
