About the local area
The local village of Bonnieux is well serviced with bakers, butchers, grocers, bank and a post office. There are also a number of restaurants, one or two of which have very good reputations and are well known in the area.
The village itself is well worth exploring. It is one of the famous perched villages and is set on the side of a hillside. The village has many different levels as it climbs the hill, with different squares, cobbled streets and passages all waiting to be explored.
It's also a great location for touring and leisure; there are a number of the Grand Randonnée hiking routes that pass by the village and the Cavaillon to Apt Cycling route also runs by the village.
The view from Bonnieux is out over the plain of the Luberon, with vineyards, fields and cherry orchards. Further in the distance you can see other tiny medieval villages, also perched on hills but on the other side of the valley.
There is a weekly market on a Friday and as well as the usual small village shops, there are cafes, bars and restaurants, all of which are within walking distance of this house, only a stroll away from the centre of the village. Markets can also be found at a host of other local towns; Cavaillon, Roussillon, Coustellet and Apt to mention just a few.
The closest Supermarkets are either in Cavaillon or in Apt.
We had a magnificent time in Provence at at the Villa! It was perfect for our needs. We enjoyed dining outdoors and the wonderful views. The most pressing question of the day was where to dine!!
The Villa was as the pictures indicated and spotlessly clean. I look forward to renting with Joie de Vivre again soon!

Overall Excellent! Spacious, cool, great views of the countryside and phenomenal sunsets. Well located to walk into town. Shower rooms upstairs were perfect. Air-conditioning upstairs was excellent. We loved the view from the veranda out to Mont Ventoux and La Coste. A smashing place to sit throughout the day with some local cheese and wine, but especially as the sun goes down. Actually this is what finally sold it to me on the web site originally.
