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 Apt.
We had a fabulous time (in spite of the weather). Villa La Paulane was perfect for our home base. My daughter and her Australian boyfriend loved their first introduction to Provence. I believe we will be looking to book again for next year!
Christian was a wonderful host … we met up easily. The Villa has very comfortable beds and overall is very comfortable. We were able to use the beautiful pool only once but it was lovely.
I look forward to being in touch with you upon my return to plan and reserve my May 2024 week!

Very pretty, very relaxing, great views of Bonnieux, beautiful location. The pool was lovely to have. We really enjoyed ourselves.
Mr B, London, July 2018
We had a lovely time at Villa St Paulane. The location (and the view) was perfect and the villa and pool was exactly “as advertised” and everything was clean and comfortable and everything worked well.
Christian (Housekeeper) was extremely helpful. He was there when we arrived and popped in several other times and gave us some really great sightseeing and places to eat advice.
We thought Bonnieux was a fabulous little village and being able to walk up into the village was just brilliant
We would definitely recommend the villa to anyone we new coming to the area and would come back ourselves without hesitation.

I just wanted to say that we had a really lovely week at the villa which was very beautiful, and in a fantastic location as you said. Christian the local rep was very helpful, and everything went smoothly, he even kindly let us check out late on the Saturday as it was extremely hot and we had several hours to wait for our train.
