From the outside this is an imposing building with a rich history of accommodating officers of French law, but as you step into the beautiful reception area, be prepared for a surprise!

Of the 7 apartments in total, 6 have 2 bedrooms, one has 1 bedroom and the other has 3 bedrooms. Each is very spacious with King and Queen size beds, well-equipped kitchens and large bathrooms. Outside there's a large private terraces and shared used of the pool garden and gym.

The style throughout the building is comfortable, modern and uncluttered. There is incredible attention to detail and where possible, the original features of the building have been retained and incorporated in the new design.

One of the biggest surprises is to find such a large pool, garden and private gym, hidden from view of the village. Again take a look at the photos to get an idea of the great views and privacy of this area.

The Gendarmerie is the perfect location if you want to be in the heart of the Luberon and able to explore all the picture-postcard hilltop villages, great restaurant and surrounding spectacular scenery. It has the advantage of a village centre location, but the luxury and tranquillity often only found when you stay at a remote, expensive villa.

Just a short drive away there's a great Sunday morning market at Coustellet and the larger town of Apt is only 15 minutes away.

There's loads to do and see in the area; St Remy-de-Provence, famous for its Roman architecture, Les Baux with its ruined castle and unique rock formations, L'Isle sur la Sorgue, famous as an antique centre and market.

Bonnieux

The village of Bonnieux has a rich and varied history and is considered to be one of the most beautiful in the Luberon.

In summer the village is really popular and therefore has some great restaurants and cafés. Although not very big, it has some useful and interesting shops, including bakers, butchers, grocery, pharmacy, post office and tourist information centre. There's also a local market on a Friday.

"Great place with pool in the centre of town"

Great apartment (le lieutenant ) with views across the luberon to Lacoste. Great to have such a big pool in the centre of everything. The apartments are finished to a high standard and very comfortable. A private parking spot is provided which is invaluable during the summer.
