We were in France during a wicked heatwave and were looking for things to do with our pre-teen and teenage children. GPS recognizes the name Forêt des Cèdres, but be prepared for no cell service once you leave Bonnieux. GPS sent us through the village...More

We had been having a lovely jaunt through the Provence countryside and went out of our way to go to the Forest of Cedars based on TripAdvisor’s ratings. I would NOT recommend going out of your way to see this IF you have only a...More

Forêt de Cedres is easy to miss, being accessed by a small road off the Bonnieux to Lourmarin road. Whilst the turn-off is at the high point of the Bonnieux to Lourmarin pass, the forêt road climbs steeply from here, offering near birds-eye views back...More

Very nice excursion, especially if you have children (or dogs); there are three marked routes which are shown at the entrance (the red and yellow one not much different really) The blue one is for wheelchair access and very short. I recommend either the red...More

At the top of the mountain above Bonnieux is a cedar forest. If you have never been in a cedar forest, you need to experience this once. The commune has set up a number of lovely walks of varying lengths and difficulty thru the woods...More

There are beautiful sweeping views over the valley from the top and it is really rewarding to climb. Very well maintained with lots of benches.

We hiked up from Bonnieux, it took about two hours on well marked paths. We took the decent in the direction of Lacoste. It was challenging, but doable. Make sure you wear good shoes.

The forest is up in the Luberon mountains some 5 min drive from Bonnieux direction Lauris. The signalisation is quite limited but you recognise the crossing due to several parking places on the opposite side of the road. Do not leave your car there but...More

Just out of Bonnieux is a Cedar Forest, which is easy to get to and I would suggest that any opportunity to stop for a view as you climb the hill, is worth taking in the view. Its not often that you can look down...More
