“Great place for visiting the Luberon”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

We stayed here for two nights in mid May, introducing two first time visitors to the charms of Southern France and the Luberon. The location of La Victorine was superb for visits to all the nearby attractive sights and towns, great walks etc. The old place has been lovingly restored; the rooms are nicely decorated, large and comfortable and the breakfast was good.

The owners, Helene and Patrick were very engaging and friendly once they determined we were pretty gregarious ourselves; yet they were also discrete when that was appropriate. It is obvious the restoration and operation of La Victorine is a labor of love for the two of them.

The only potential negative for some people may be the totally rural location, and a car is a necessity. For us, however, the peace and quiet amongst the fields and vines was yet another positive.

We stayed in La Victorine for 5 nights in September and had a really lovely time there. Helene and Patrick were so helpful and kind to us, especially my 2 year old daughter. Our room was spacious and opened onto our own private terrace. The breakfast was delicious with homemade jams and the pool was delightful. The location is excellent for touring the Luberon, and Helene had great suggestions for villages off the beaten track to visit. Overall can't recommend La Victorine highly enough!

Our 3-night stay at La Victorine could not have been more pleasant. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and stayed nice and cool in the late spring heat. The hotel -- a beautifully converted barn -- is lovely and the grounds are perfect for relaxing, either by the pool or in the shade on the patio. The breakfast consisted of bread, croissants, local honey, home-made jam, yogurt, and even freshly picked strawberries from the garden. What won us over more than anything else, though, were the hosts, Patrick and Helene. They are extremely generous with their time, their knowledge of the area, even with their rose wine. They were interested in getting to know us, but they also knew when we wanted to be on our own. It was truly like staying with friends, but without any of the potential complications. The only tip I will give is to arrive during the day, as it is a little difficult to find and the roads are not well lit. We highly recommend La Victorine!

We were lucky enough to stumble upon this delightful Chambre d'hotes in a desperate late afternoon search for accomodation while driving towards Bonnieux. We knew we wanted to stay in the Luberon, and the photos looked gorgeous ....

Initially we were were a little concerned that it was not located in Bonnieux itself, but very quickly came to realise that its position, less than 5 minutes drive from the Village was one of its many advantages. (and about 5 minutes from Apt, Roussillon and many others)

To put it simply, there is something very special about La Victorine.
We came for one night, at the end of our 6 week 'European Vacation', and ended up staying for 3 nights (next time we will stay for a week!).

Patrick and Helene are delightful hosts - very welcoming and very friendly - and have the very unique knack of making all their guests welcome and encouraging conversation between the guests, but still allowing you privacy and time to enjoy the tranquility of the beautiful courtyard and pool area.

Our room on the first floor was spacious (as a family of 2 adults of a 11 year old daughter it was the biggest room we had enjoyed in 6 weeks) and the separate modern bathroom was almost a room of its own!

Breakfast each morning was a real treat, fresh bread, croissants, a selection of homemade jams, and homemade fruit compote each morning to accompany the yoghurt. One morning Helene even made the most delicious pear clafoutis from the pears that had fallen from the trees in the garden overnight.

Again, Patrick and Helene are wonderful hosts, and are a great source of inspiration for the many different ways to spend your days in the Luberon, and full of suggestions for lovely dinners in nearby restaurants - most of our highlights in the Luberon were from their recommendations ...

If you are planning on a longer stay at La Victorine - one of the unique advantages is a beautiful lounge and dining room with a spectacular outlook over the vines, and a full kitchen solely for the use of the guests ... this is something we have not come across in our many stays in Chambre D'hotes in France. You can chose to 'eat in' and feel totally at home in this wonderful place, or enjoy a pre-dinner drink before heading out to one of the many fantastic restarants located minutes away.

Our daughter loved it (and Patrick & Helene) so much she really did not want to leave.

We cannot recommend this wonderful place highly enough - superbly located, wonderful warm hosts, and simply the best way to approach any stay in the Luberon ....

Was in Bonnieux for my friend's wedding and we stayed at La Victorine for 4 days. A charming bed and breakfast with two wonderful caretakers - Helene and Patrick. They made our stay very enjoyable and comfortable. They serve a lovely breakfast and the rooms are clean and spacious. The yard consists of a pool and a grassy area to nap or read. Beautiful, serene surroundings. I would definitely stay here again!
