Pin this Villa
Bastide des Millefleurs is a true haven of peaceful comfort, and a wonder within the Luberon.

Situated on a hillside among vineyards, Bastide de Millefleurs boasts fantastic views of the Luberon hills and famous Bonnieux village.

The property encompasses vast manicured gardens, a beautiful and large swimming pool and a private tennis court from where one can admire the fabulous landscape. Outdoor sitting areas are abundant and comfortable.

This estate is absolutely perfect for extended families and is a real treat for children. The main house has a very large master bedroom with office on the first floor, two bedrooms on a different level with separate entrance and a unique fantastic dormitory for children on the second floor. An apartment made in an historic small stone house known as a Borie is also set near the pool and tennis court area.

The house is fully air conditioned, the living area is vast, light and airy, and the decoration is refined, a lovely mix of provençal and modern.

Our guests become entranced while resting or dining on the covered terrace with open views in all directions.

The most famous hilltop villages in the Luberon – with lively cafés and chic restaurants - can all be reached within a 10 minutes’ drive.

June 2022

If it were possible to give a 10 star rating to Only Provence, I would happily do so. It is unusual to find, with such ease, a vacation rental that was a perfect fit in every way for a family of 3 generations. Ingrid Smith worked with us for 2.5 years ( Covid delays) and patiently and efficiently directed the process of finding a beautiful villa, recommending French on site staff who did a multitude of services from making restaurant reservations, recommending chefs to come to the villa, having bikes delivered and suggesting places not to be missed, always ending with the reminder that they were available to help in any way.

Bastide Millefleurs is a beautiful property surrounded by acres of vineyards and olive trees all well maintained by the owners and staff. The grounds are spectacular with ornamental gardens and fountains, shaded grassy areas perfect for late afternoon games, a large pool with diving board, tennis courts, large dining area for many, and an additional seating area bordered by hundreds of colorful blooming flowers; a perfect setting for breakfast, lunch or cocktails.

Attention to detail was evident throughout the house which was decorated in a timeless French style. Large quantities of tasteful china, cutlery, glassware, linen napkins with cherry orchard monogram, beautiful French stove, multiple small kitchen appliances, extra refrigerator and freezer nearby helped to make the vacation a cooking and dining delight.

The children’s dormitory was a wonderfully designed large room that had our grandchildren enthusiastically talking about the fun they had in this unique space.

After visits to nearby villages and summer markets, it was a joy to return to Bastide Millefleurs for tennis, swimming and diving practice for the kids, races on the grassy allee or relaxing in one of the gardens watching the sun set on Bonnieux, a picturesque hilltop village. Pictures shared with friends of scenic vistas at Bastide Millefleurs and so many fun things happening often got the same response.. “How DID you find that property?"

Thank you Only Provence, Ingrid and Stanley Smith, your wonderful French staff, Sally Anne house manager, and, of course, the owners of Bastide Millefleurs . With your help we made incredible memories in a beautiful setting that will be cherished as one of the best trips ever!

his property was like something out of a dream fairytale. Picturesque castle towns in the a distance. Perfectly set amongst vineyards and cherry orchards. A spacious clean well appointed house with everything you could possibly need while on vacation. We found out the property is for sale and I’m hoping I win the lottery so that I can buy it! I highly recommend this to anyone looking to spend a magical week in Provence.
