“Beautiful apartment in gorgeous setting”
Reviewed 21 January 2018 for a stay in October 2017

The Old Gendarmerie 2 in the gorgeous village of Bonnieux was one of the highlights of our 7 weeks in Europe. Organising our stay from the other side of the world was so easy with Helen's wonderful assistance and the apartment had everything we needed. The setting was beautiful with gorgeous views from our bedroom windows. Christian the property manager was so helpful and we enjoyed our chats with him learning all about our new surroundings. Highly recommended!

“Authentic French Property in a Fabulous Location”
Reviewed 27 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The views from this apartment are stunning. If you are looking for peace and quiet but within walking distance of restaurants and shops then this place is ideal. We loved it. The apartments have all the usual things that you would expect from a modern holiday home but it has been very tastefully done in keeping with the lovely old building that it is. There was a lovely pool with lots of sunbeds, tables and chairs and other great facilities like laundry, dishwasher, coffee machine. We would love to return!

“This is a great place to stay in Bonnieux - definitely would return.”
Reviewed 2 July 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We had a wonderful week at the Old Gendarmerie. The Lieutenant apartment was perfect for our needs, two decent sized bedrooms, comfortable beds, small well-equipped kitchen and laundry in the basement. The kitchen and bedroom windows had wonderful views across the valley, nice balcony off the spacious living room overlooking the pool. It was nicely located in easy walking distance to everything and having private parking was a huge advantage in Bonnieux. The village itself was an ideal location for road and bike trips through the gorgeous Luberon countryside. Bonnieux was large enough to allow us to eat somewhere different every night (including two very good restaurants) but still retained a village feel and such nice walks through the lanes and alleys, including the steep passages up the hill towards the church. Christian the concierge was a delight to get to know and so helpful. The pool was a nice feature, but one very small gripe - the pool was a little too "fresh" for my liking, so could have done with heating (or heated more if it was being heated). Even though it was in the high 20's centigrade during the day the cool evenings meant the pool would not heat up enough on its own. Overall this was an excellent rental experience and Helen Bowles of JDV Holidays was great in responsiveness and information in the booking and pre-arrival process.

“Bonnieux was lovely.....”
Reviewed 1 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We spent a lovely week in the gorgeous village of Bonnieux (my second visit personally) in mid August. We thoroughly enjoyed the village and exploring the immediate neighbourhood. We went to Roussillon, Lourmarin, ccyeld to Apt and back with SunBikes electric bikes. We travelled to Aix for a day trip and even made one rather crazy afternoon trip to the coast (on the Camargue). We had a pretty full on week and the area is great.

JDV and the concierge for the Gendarmerie did all they could to help with a number of unfortunate issues that we had with our accommodation: cleaning was not brilliant when we arrived, our fridge did not work and the shower was very inadequate (mainly water pressure issues), the dishwasher often did not rinse well as well. We reported all issues immediately and to the credit of JDV and the concierge they immediately brought us a replacement fridge and attempted a repair on the shower but in reality the issue was the woeful water pressure on the top floor.

Having the private secure parking close by is a real help in a town like Bonnieux, the pool was nice (if a little cool) and enough room on the loungers for all guests. The communal laundry worked well and we were made to feel very welcome but as you will infer from this review we would be hesitant to return to this particular property.

Many thanks for your positive and helpful review. This kind of information is so helpful and valuable to us. It was a great help that you quickly reported the issues you found at the apartment as this gave us the opportunity to improve things, with local help. We would love to help you with accommodation again, perhaps in one of our other villas or apartments, if you visit Provence in the future.

“Our favorite spot during our European vacation”
Reviewed 28 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We very much enjoyed this lovely apartment - comfortable, quiet, well-furnished, and a great lay-out - with a nice deck for breakfasts and relaxing in the evening. The pool was just as pictured. Bonnieux is charming, very walkable hill town - with a variety of restaurants, bakeries, small grocery store, ATM, local artists, Friday morning market, and two ice cream shops

“We loved the apartment and the locale”
Reviewed 8 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Our concierge met us as agreed and showed us the secured parking spot which was such a bonus in a tiny town with very narrow streets. Bonnieux had much to offer in terms of food and it was so close to many other towns and markets. The driving was easy and the roads are in excellent repair. We loved the morning markets and hit all of them. The entire holiday exceeded our expectations. Provence is amazing! The apartment was roomy and right in the center of town and served us (2 couples) perfectly. Plenty of hot water as well!
