Did the villa meet your expectation?
About what I expected?
Please detail the reasons why:
Only issues were not enough umbrellas at pool for guests. Full Sun and for six people only one umbrella for shade that worked. Also advertised a grill which we have used numerous times in past st other villas. No grill for outdoors was available so had to cook all meals indoors which makes it hotter in the summer.
Were you able to find the property easily?
Yes, but with some issues?

Needed guide first time up which they provided otherwise no problems afterwards finding it on our own.

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.
