Classic Provencal hilltop church with quite breathtaking views. Whilst the church itself is smaller and plainer than others in the dept. it has character but put on your sturdy shoes for the upward climb. In late July and August, be rewarded by a breeze laden...More

Bonnieux is one of those perfect Luberon hilltop villages with beautiful views of the valley. Very authentic and well-lived; not spruced up or touristy. The old church is located at the summit of the hill, but is no longer in use. If dinner in Bonnieux...More
