About Bonnieux

A small Provençal village tumbling along the side of a hill, Bonnieux is appealingly unpolished and authentic. Defined by its maze of winding alleyways lined with independent shops and cafés, this is a superb spot for relaxed strolls and lazy days of savouring regional cuisine. Accommodation options range from simple B&Bs to swish luxury hotels, fit for a whole array of tastes and budgets. Small and sun-dappled, the best places to stay in Bonnieux feature cream-coloured stone walls and lush gardens; many also have inviting swimming pools.

Climb towards the top of the hill to peer into the 13th-century Eglise Haute, surrounded by dazzling views of the fields of the Luberon. Further down the slope, the Eglise Neuve, is bedecked with 16th-century oil paintings, whilst the ancient stone Pont Julien, just outside of town, was built for Julius Caesar. Stroll back towards the centre of town to stock up on local produce at the Friday market, amble along the 12th-century ramparts or delve into the secrets of bread-making at the Boulangerie Museum. Immerse yourself in nature by following marked botanical trails through the cedar forest on foot or bicycle or visiting a lavender distillery.

Charming and historic, the best places to stay in Bonnieux promise a southern French escape to remember!

  • Provence is wonderful for a road trip! Contact our online partner Rentalcars if you would like to hire a car.
  • With an average of 300 days of sunshine a year, Provence is blessed with a near-Mediterranean climate. Expect hot summers — with temperatures of 26-30°C — and mild winters.
