“Marvellous place in central Bonnieux”

We have visited The Old Gendarmerie twice (in 2012 and 2015, both times in Le Lieutenant, booked through Joie de Vivre). It's the ONLY place that we have come back to on a holiday. It's because both the appartement and Bonnieux are plain marvellous. It's so convinient and nice to be in the appartment. It so close to the butcher, bakery and many of the good restaurants. The appartment does not have A/C, but it has not been a problem for us at all (during last visit it was 35+ degrees centrigrade). We just close the shades during the day and open the windows at night. No mosquitos at all. It's a great place to be in order to experience the charme of Bonnieux and to visit the many small other lovely villages in the proximity. It can also be highly recommended to rent bikes for a day-trip from Sun-E-Bike, situated just around the corner. We did enjoy our second stay just as much as our first and we already contemplate on going back. We can highly recommend The Old Gendarmerie.

“I have never stayed in a better Police Station”

The accommodation was excellent, we stayed on the top floor and it was charming. There is no air conditioning but at this level there is an health flow of air. The apartment is extremely well equipped and has an excellent shower and kitchen area. Thanks to very attentive cleaners it was spotless.
The entire apartment block is well managed, even to the extent of personalised parking spaces, very useful in a small village.
If you have ever seen the film 'A Good Year' then Bonnieux is a perfect place to stop if you would like to follow the film trail.

“Wonderful place to stay - fabulous views and lovely apartment”

people found this review helpful

We enjoyed a wonderful week in the Old Gendarmarie. Our spacious apartment was very well equipped and had a fabulous view from the balcony. The building is full of character and yet has all the modern amenities. It's in a perfect position with all the local shops in very easy walking distance. We didn't use the pool area as we were there at the end of October but it would be a lovely place to relax in the summer. Highly recommended.

The apartment was spacious, bright, comfortable & well equipped. For most of our stay there were 4 of us and it worked just fine. Wish it had been warm enough for the pool which looked very inviting.

“Excellent Apartment”
Reviewed 30 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed for a week in August (family of 4, kids 6 & 4 yrs). The apartment exceeded our expectations. It was large and beautifully decorated. It had a balcony overlooking the pool and good wifi access. There is a communal laundry room which is very handy. Also a small gym and pool. The location is very central and generally quiet - though we did hear bars/music until 1am on the Saturday night. There is a private parking space for each apartment - essential in peak season. We found it difficult to find from the rather vague directions provided by the agents. Overall a great apartment in a great location.

very nice appt on the top floor .. fantastic views ... nice pool to wind down after a day of visiting this lovely region....appt was in the center of the village which has plenty of restaurants to choose from we went to a different one most nights which saves on the driving and enables you to enjoy a glass of wine or two...only fault was lack of A/C but not a big problem we did have a couple of storms at night so weather got muggy but still slept well in comfy beds.

“Wonderful Family Stay In Provence”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We recently had a week for our family of four in the beautiful village of Bonnieux staying at The Old Gendarmerie, we couldn't have asked for more.
The apartment was great, a good size for us, wonderful views across the valley to Lacoste, easy to access, close to the shops, restaurants, nice walks around the village and best of all , it had a pool for the afternoon swim in the nice hot Provincial weather.
Bonnieux was a good base for visiting the sights of the Luberon area, vineyards and other villages, staying in apartments like this that really make the holiday a pleasant experience.
