Based at the edge of Bonnieux, a quaint Provençal village with views over the Luberon Valley and framed by stunning countryside, Les Rochers Gris offers an authentic stay in one of France’s most vibrant regions.

Stretching from the Mediterranean to the French Alps, the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region is a popular holiday destination, best known for its Roman architecture, breathtaking nature and sunny coastline framed by beaches and cliffs. The area also offers ample hiking and cycling opportunities, while wine lovers will appreciate the Luberon AOC vineyards and wineries.

Climb a couple of steps, and you’ll find yourself above street level inside this charming, one-of-a-kind villa with stunning views. On the ground floor, there is an elegant kitchen drenched in sage green hues, with exposed wooden beams on the ceiling adding to the place’s cosy farmhouse charm. Doors that open to the private garden allow plenty of natural light to flood in, great for those who love to bask in the morning sunshine.

Just around the corner, divided by an entrance through the stone architecture, you can find a cosy living area with a log burner. If you need to do some work while on holiday, the small study area will come in handy too, and it’s equipped with a desk for all your needs. Both bedrooms and bathrooms are located on the first floor, accessible by a set of stairs.

Although we can’t blame you for wanting to spend plenty of time inside, the outdoor area offers many possibilities for channelling the true Provençal lifestyle. Whether you want to soak up sun rays, cool down in the pool or host an al-fresco dinner on the decked-out terrace, the Mediterranean garden gives a wonderful view into the valley below and will have you hooked in seconds.

The cosy villa is conveniently located on the edge of Bonnieux, a picture-perfect village with a well-preserved historic centre full of shops, cafés and restaurants serving traditional French cuisine. Some other nearby villages worth visiting include Lacoste, Lourmarin, Goult and Ménerbes.

If you fancy some hustle and bustle, head to Avignon for a fun and culture-filled day trip. Located 50km away, it’s full of ancient architecture and romantic alleyways ideal for exploring.

Les Rochers Gris is fantastically positioned only a kilometre away from the charismatic village of Bonnieux. From the villa, there is a clear view of half of the Luberon – an area composed of three mountain ranges covered with spectacular vineyards and lavender landscapes. Sip on exquisite French wine produced only a stone’s throw away from where you’re sitting, wander around the village’s cobbled streets dating back to Middle Ages or visit the Friday market to stock up on fig jams, olive oil, artisanal produce and fresh groceries. If you wish to recreate some traditional dishes you’ve tasted during your stay in France, you’ll be happy to find out that the local supermarket is located in the heart of the village.

From Bonnieux, it’s only a 20-minute drive to another quaint village, Ménerbes. This village has a well-preserved historic past visible through its architecture. Another must-see is Lacoste, with its ruined medieval castle, now a thriving cultural venue, that once belonged to the infamous Marquis de Sade – then bought and rescued by Pierre Cardin in 2001. You could also visit Lourmarin and its fairy-tale-like, restored Renaissance château. Full of typical Provençal boutiques, antique stores and galleries.

The UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Avignon can be reached in only 50 minutes by car and include the city’s historic centre, Papal Palace, Episcopal Ensemble and Avignon Bridge. Once you’re done admiring these centuries-old buildings, you can also visit some of the small museums, take a cruise along the river Rhone or tantalise your tastebuds at the Les Halles Market, where you can sample local produce and buy yummy souvenirs for your family and friends back home.

Provence has a beautifully varied landscape, and so on hot sunny days, you can cool down in the Mediterranean Sea by visiting one of the nearby seaside towns. Notably, Marseille is just 80km away. Stroll around the port during the day to see fishmongers selling their daily catch along a boat-lined quay or head to town to savour fresh seafood in one of the many restaurants. When you drive further down south, you can reach the Parc national des Calanques – ideal for taking in fascinating nature and enjoying views over a mountainous coastline and its adjacent marine area.

Region

The Provençal way of life is one that’s deeply tempting for anyone who’s been feeling the need to get away from it all. This is a place where the Mediterranean weather turns fields of corn and lavender into picture-perfect backdrops, where you can sip your locally bought wine and enjoy the landscapes before heading out and tackling them head-on with a range of great activities for families, groups of friends and adventurous foodies. Better yet, our range of villas in Provence and chateaux and holiday homes in the Côte d’Azur make the perfect base to explore this enchanting region!

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

There are plenty of activities for families with children, such as exploring the rolling hills and rural backcountry surrounding small medieval villages. Put on your walking boots and head down to the Parc Naturel Regional des Alpilles – a small natural park with a territory of abundant biodiversity. Here you can set off on relaxing and scenic trails that take you through olive groves, orchards and scrubland scattered with old chapels and farmhouses. Many villages offer bike rentals and guided tours if you wish to take your holiday to another level.

Visiting one of the nearby lavender fields is a must if you want to bring home beautiful holiday photographs. The area of Aix-en-Provence is bathed in sunlight and therefore has perfect conditions for growing lavender. Children can roam free through the sea of purple hues, while parents are encouraged to buy lavender soaps and other aromatic souvenirs from the on-site shops. You can also pack a light lunch for a sunny picnic near the fields.

When the Mediterranean sunshine gets too much for walking around villages and discovering market towns, you can always opt for some water-based activities. These include canoeing along the Sorgue river or splashing around in the Wave Island near Carpentras. Located only 47km away, the popular water park hosts an array of rides, wave pools, and slides, as well as a surf wave stimulator and Europe’s largest lazy river.
