Maison Rouville is a splendid village house in the picturesque centre of Bonnieux, overlooking the central valley of the Luberon with views on Lacoste, Goult, Gordes and Roussillon, with the majestic Mt Ventoux as a backdrop.
Maison Rouville offers 110m² of living space and has recently been completely renovated and transformed into a spacious loft-style house. The decoration has been done by a interior designer, in a mix of design and locally sourced antiques. Maison Rouville offers magnificent views of the surroundings, which can be enjoyed from the upstairs sitting room and roof terrace.
Entrance to the house is from a charming small courtyard into the spacious living area (60 m²) with fully equipped open plan kitchen, a large fireplace, a sitting area and a dining area. During the recent renovation lots of the original Provencal charm of the house has been preserved: the flooring is handmade terracotta tiling and the living area retains its original beamed ceiling.
On the same level, two steps up, you will find the bathroom and the bedroom. The bathroom has a large walk-in shower, a black marble washbasin and a WC. The spacious bedroom offers a queen size bed and a romantic clawfoot bathtub. The bedroom and the living area both benefit from air conditioning.
From the living area wooden stairs lead up to the upper floor where you'll find a sitting room with large bay windows opening up onto the roof terrace, giving the room an 'inside out' feel. In summer, with the bay windows open, the room functions as the shady part of the terrace, whereas on chilly days, with closed windows, the room offers cosy comfort with an outside feel. The views from the terrace and the salon are amazing, with spectacular sunsets to be enjoyed every night.
Maison Rouville is located in the centre of the famous Provencal village of Bonnieux, where you'll find ample restaurants, bars and shops, all within easy walking distance. Friday morning's there is a very nice open-air market with local products and souvenirs. From the village hiking trails start out in all directions, and Bonnieux is also a great starting point for bicycle trips; (electric) bikes are for rent in the village.
The major sights in Provence and the villages of Gordes, Menerbes, Roussillon, Lourmarin and Goult are all within striking distance. It is 55 minutes driving from Marseille-Marignane airport, 35 minutes from Avignon, 1 hour from the sea and 50 minutes from Aix-en-Provence. You'll find a 18-hole golf course near Saumane, at 27 km.

This is a very pleasant village house! My wife and I stayed here 2 weeks last summer and had a lovely time. The house itself is spacious, very comfortable, with a well-appointed kitchen, a lovely bathroom and a very spacious bedroom with a bath on heels! On top of that air-conditioning and bug screens all around.Lots of charm and very tastefully decorated. We had our breakfast every day on the wonderful roof terrace, and every evening a magical sunset. And of course it’s location is unbeatable with restaurants and shops just around the corner and in the middle of a charming bustling village live. We’ll be back soon!

Great holiday, couldn’t have wished for more!

Last September we stayed here for a week. We wanted to do a lot of cycling and hiking and this house turned out to be a perfect basis to explore the Luberon region in this way. We took our own bikes, which we could park in the little courtyard, but it turned out there were plenty of bikes for rent in the village. At night we just walked around the corner to have a lovely meal in one of the numerous restaurants the village has on offer. We absolutely would recommend this house.
