L'ostau Bonnieux

Very well done 4 bedroom villa, within a five minute walk of the charming village of Bonnieux

Provence/France Villa 8

The villa is set on a picturesque hillside within a 20 minute walk of Bonnieux. It offers the quintessential Provençal experience. There’s character and charm to spare here, with original tiled floors and beamed ceilings, sumptuous views, and an atmosphere of sheer tranquility. Immersed in the gorgeous landscape of the Luberon National Park, this impeccably presented villa never fails to leave a big impression on its guests.

Leading off the entrance hall on the ground floor, a modern kitchen seats eight people around the table, and opens onto a vine-shaded terrace with space for eight. A comfortable living area is perfect for getting together in the evenings, and there’s also a large en suite bedroom on this floor that allows magnificent panoramas of the Luberon.

Upstairs, there are three further bedrooms, two en suite. Each room has a king-size bed, while the master suite also has its own private balcony, ideal for sundowners.

Within the peaceful, well-maintained gardens, you can relax around a large swimming pool that enjoys a lot of sun. If you fancy getting out and about, Bonnieux is just a short walk away. There can be few places better to stay than on the scenic doorstep of one of the most famous villages in Provence. A Michelin-starred restaurant and a weekly market await you, so you can dine out perfectly and stock up to dine in as well.

All bedrooms can be made up as doubles or twins, please request at time of booking. Children under 10 years are not allowed at this villa.

There’s a choice of settings: the swish interior (carved straight into the hillside) or the lovely terrace on the square. Either way, the menu’s the same: rich, delicious Mediterranean dishes, making use of the chef’s homemade jus concentrés (concentrated sauces). It also has an ice-cream shop on the same square. Moderate pricing, 2-/3-course menus lunch €24.90-32, dinner €41.50-54.50, dinner mains €26.80

The menu revolves around gourmet ingredients with impeccable local provenance, dashed with spice and surprises.

The food itself is all about authenticity, and the chef places a special emphasis on freshness, flavour and generosity! As aromatic as its name suggests.

Restaurant Edouard Loubet-at La Bastide de Capelongue, RTE DE LOURMARIN, 84480 BONNIEUX Tel +33490758978 www.capelongue.com 20 minute walk from the villa. The French restaurant guide Gault&Milleau considers this restaurant one of the 20 best in France and Michelin has awarded them Two Stars. Chef Loubet is, without a doubt one of the most creative chefs in France at the moment. You will never be bored and always surprised at his table. He seems to take the baest Luberon ingredients and interpret thm in the most interesting ways. The chef or his wife will most likely great you themselves, and the wait staff and atmosphere are top notch in very way. Eating here is not just a meal, but truly an experience. Very expensive, but the set menu for lunch is an excellant value. Menu 58 € (weekday lunch), 140/190 € dinner - Carte 130/160 €.

La Bergerie, also at La Bastide de Capelongue)-RTE DE LOURMARIN, 84480 BONNIEUX Tel +33490758978 www.capelongue.com 20 minute walk from the villa. This restaurant is also, like the above restaurant, run by Chef Loubet. It offers a less formal, less expensive option to try his food. It is a more traditional bistro version of his gastronomic restaurant. Just as the terrace reveals stunning views, so the menu turns the spotlight on produce from the region. Such as tapenade, leg of lamb à la ficelle (roasted on a string) and casseroles, timeless marquises au chocolat and floating islands. There is no question as to the expertise of the kitchen team.
