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.

Location description from owner

The Luberon region

The winding roads of the Luberon, with spectacular views, are great to explore and you'll find loads of picturesque villages (Gordes, Menerbes, Maubec) on the doorstep.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. Also within easy reach are Pont du Gard, Avignon with the Palace of the Popes, Marseille with its famous waterfront, the Amphitheatre at Nimes and the cultured avenues of Aix-en-Provence.If activity is your thing, this area is perfect for climbing, cycling, mountain biking, trekking, golf, tennis and swimming.

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 apartment in a delightful location”

Reviewed 30 Jul 2015

Our second stay in the Old Gendarmerie, and we enjoyed it every bit as much as the first. It's so convenient to be able to walk to the bakery, butcher and mini-supermarket in a couple of minutes, no need to use the car. The kitchenette is quite basic, but adequate for breakfast and lunch (which we usually had on the balcony), and Bonnieux has loads of places to eat out. The pool is a decent size, and there are plenty of chairs and loungers, and shade if you need it (we did!).

“Great place with pool in the centre of town”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2013

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.
