"We just loved this place! The house was spacious, clean, light - 4 full bedrooms and 2 full baths with great showers. The kitchen was a dream - we prepared several meals there with food we bought in town and at the local markets. As another reviewer mentioned, everything was very high quality, from the appliances down to the cutlery...I wanted to stay forever! It is so peaceful - I have never seen that many stars at night! We did not meet the owner Didier, but we communicated by text and telephone with no problem. Roger, who I believe lives on the premises, was there to welcome us and show us around the home. We found it with no problem using Google Maps (not sure that we would have otherwise...). We wanted a remote spot to get away, but somewhere that would be a good start for day trips around the area. Perfect! Except that we loved the town of Bonnieux so much that we didn't want to go anywhere else! All the local people were friendly and helpful, and there are great restaurants there. We especially loved l'Arome. We did make several day trips, to L'Isle sur la Sorgue (a nice town but it was pouring rain so we didn't really get to do much), Lourmarin, Menerbes and Lacoste....all very close and all charming. We loved the Friday market in Bonnieux - a great spot to pick up last-minute souvenirs and gifts, like handmade soaps, lavender sachets, gorgeous olive wood spoons, cutting boards, etc., delicious food items, and of course local cheese, bread and vegetables. We visited several wineries and tasting rooms in the area....All of us are wine lovers, and we were amazed at the value of the local wine...so delicious and so inexpensive! So yes, we loved it all! Next time we will definitely stay longer...five days in heaven was not nearly enough!"
