Pure Villa Bonnieux is a late 18th century traditional stone farmhouse located in the heart of the Provence’s Lubéron region.
The property was acquired by its current owners in 2011 and underwent three years of extensive renovation and restoration under the leadership of the famed French architect Hugues Bosc and the celebrated landscape artist Michel Sémini. The guiding principles of the restoration were authenticity, functionality, flow and comfort.
Set amongst nearly 20 hectares of its own lavender fields, this beautiful property has been restored to offer all the comforts of a modern luxury holiday home with the famous perched villages of Bonnieux and Lacoste and views of the Mont Ventoux as its backdrop. The house is surrounded by a landscaped garden of one hectare (two acres), which includes a heated pool (18x6 meter) and its surrounding deck area. This place also offers numerous terraces and courtyards as well as several outdoor seating areas including an open fire pit, a built in BBQ area, and two fountains. Due to the lavender fields, the villa provides full privacy.
For children wishing to run around, there is a large lawn area designed for play. Available on site are two football (soccer) goals, a basketball hoop, table tennis table, six bicycles, and boules for “pétanque”, the traditional game played by locals. The outdoor is equipped with a Sonos sound system.
The original exterior sandstone walls and traditional shuttered windows were restored while, indoors, guests will discover a combination of traditional architecture, regional old stone and antique timber beams with fresh, contemporary spaces punctuated by metal lintels, large glass framed windows and cement floors. Inside, the property boasts beautiful high-end finishes and decoration throughout.
The house comfortably sleeps 13+ adults in six bedrooms plus a family room, with a living space totalling approximately 500 square meters.
The property is divided into three main living areas: the Northern Wing, the Southern Wing, and the Dining Hall.

The Northern Wing comprises the main entrance, a living room and a library separated by a two-way chimney, and a double bedroom suite on the ground floor with ensuite bathroom (tub, double sink, shower and a toilet).
