Pin this Villa
This fully newly renovated old farm has all the charm one can dream of..

Numerous terraces with different exposures, either shaded, or sunny; a very large pool surrounded by a fragrant lavender field; a clay tennis court in perfect condition. Enjoy fantastic views of 2 of the most dramatic villages in Provence Bonnieux and Lacoste. Cherry trees, and vineyards surround the house...

There is an air conditioned gym located on the ground floor to keep you fit between delicious meals.

The 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom house has all the comfort and amenities, with vast, open interior space. In addition to the oversize sitting room, there is a separate TV room with all English channels. A 6th bedroom / office with shower room is possible and best suited a nanny or a teen. This room has a “click-clack” couch (similar to a futon) that folds down to form a comfortable double bed.

The feeling of space, liberty, and authenticity in and out of the house make the property a great choice for families or groups of friends.

Reviews

Average rating:
5 out of 5 based on 4 ratings. 4 user reviews.

The house was fantastic and the location was perfect

Areas for improvement:
The tennis court - the lines are pieces of metal which you can trip over - not ideal
The cleaners turned up at 8.30am on the day we were leaving which we felt was not very appropriate as we did not have to leave before 10am

We would definitely recommend the house

What star rating would you give Mas du Fournil?4
What star rating would you give Only Provence? 4

'Great flow of house, well-suited to extended family.
Could be together in large living room, then spread out
separately at different times.

First experience of salt-water pool - softer and kinder
than chlorine. But a frivolous detail - yet much taken by
gentle colour of pool.

Lovely open and quiet outlook onto lavender fields and beyond.
Tennis court used mornings and evenings.
Bicycles in house great for spontaneous galavants.

Chef Gerald's meal of a high standard / absolutely delicious.
Made for highly successful evening.

Only Provence's most efficient set-up and level of communication
before and throughout stay, feels like a trusted friend one returns to.
Many thanks for our wonderful holiday.'

I already gave some very minor suggestions, but other than those the house and our vacation were pretty much a perfect 10. Thanks so much for your help!

“John and the Only Provence team – thanks for yet another incredible trip to Provence. This is our fourth property rental with your company and, as anticipated, it was a remarkable experience. We arrived with a fantastically stocked fridge after a late Saturday arrival in Marseiile. The home was beautiful, as per usual, and the grounds (where we spent so much time) rewarded the eyes with views of lavender in early bloom, cherry trees with ripe fruit, olive groves, plane trees, a small vineyard and the castle of Lacoste (illuminated at night !).
It’s not just the particular property that one rents, it’s the experience and knowing that one is going to be looked after, time and again. We will be back with you and your team.”

Locale

No matter what route you take to Bonnieux, you will see the church tower well before you arrive. At a height of 425m, the tower dominates the countryside and the surroundings of this magnificent village, situated in the Luberon.

Bonnieux - Church

Built on a plateau above the valley, Bonnieux is one of the finest villages in the area. The houses spread out on the hill-side form a striking harmony of earth-toned colours and shapes.

Bonnieux - Calade

Some superb residences dating back to the 16th, 17th, and 18th century serve as a reminder that Bonnieux was a wealthy village when this region, the Comtat Venaissin, belonged to the Popes.

Bonnieux - Vaulted door

Several bishops also chose to live here and as you wander through the village streets you will no doubt marvel at the architecture and history on display.

Bonnieux - Cedars

After having climbed 86 stone steps to the "Vieille Eglise" and the old cedar trees,you will discover a beautiful view of the Monts du Vaucluse, and the villages of Gordes and Roussillon. You can also admire the vast plains planted with grape vines (Cotes du Luberon), lavender, cereals and fruit trees - just as the impressionists painted them!

Bonnieux - Restaurant

Don't leave Bonnieux without visiting the Boulangerie Musueum where you will see a collection of bread and learn plenty about its history and manufacture.

All this will certainly whet your appetite - but don't worry, Bonnieux has some excellent restaurants, complete with charming terraces.

Getting here:
The easiest way to get to Inland Provence from the US is to fly to Marseilles International Airport (MRS). If you would like to see Paris, fly to Charles de Gaulle Airport then connect directly to the TGV(high speed train) from CDG TGV2 to Avignon TGV(3 hours direct) and rent a car. You would plan to see Paris on the way back, taking the TGV from Avignon TGV to Gare de Lyon, getting a cab to your hotel in the city.
