Les Trois Sources is a 5 room B&B located a few minutes off the D36, just below the village of Bonnieux, a three minute drive away. The B&B was actually a large farmhouse with courtyard, part of it dating back to the 13th C when it was used as a church—you can still see the vaulted ceiling. It then became a hospital, a “magnanerie” (silk worm farm,) then a farm in around the 18th C. The current owners have been there for about 16 years; they took a dilapidated structure, saved the best parts (layout, ancient curving huge stone staircase, and fabulous old wooden doors) and have re-created an ancient “mas” (farmhouse) with modern conveniences. They added a 15 meter (about 45 foot) pool. This place is a rare find.

The rooms are very large and comfortable, all with bath tub and shower, and separate toilet. There is a suite with a large room connected to a smaller one with twin beds. Rooms are well heated; the thick walls obviate the need for air conditioning. The style of the rooms is in keeping with an old farmhouse—simple, large but well done. This is a classy, redone farm. Don’t expect overdone rooms filled with colorful Provencal fabrics and cutesy little touches. Views from the rooms show the surrounding countryside and villages. WIFI is available in the common areas; DSL can be added in the rooms. The Breakfast is included and is served outside under the trees in the old courtyard in nice weather, or else inside. It includes freshly squeezed orange juice, yogurt, croissants, several types of breads, 4 kinds of yummy preserves and honey, and of course excellent coffee and tea. Of course it would be nice if some fresh, seasonal fruit and meat or egg dishes were included.

Paul and Caroline are the very charming and professional French owners. They are flexible and very helpful with touring ideas in the area. Paul speaks fairly good English but it doesn’t seem that Caroline does. (I spoke to them in French.) Some advice for travelers wherever they are in France: if you have a request (e.g. coffee before the “appointed time,” teapot in the room if you arrive jet lagged and don’t know if you will make breakfast) be sure to talk to the owners; most are willing to help. Since B&Bs are not hotels, there is no room service. But the owners run these places and know that it is important to help with guest requests.

what a marvelous place!

the rooms (we rented three) are spacious and beautifully renovated with modern amenities but with old times charm.

We and the kids enjoyed the rich breakfast (not typically french) and the blooming yard as well.

the owner spent a great deal of time with us to recommend place and routes to visit.

Room Tip: If nights become chilly you can use the heating,

The peaceful setting for this fabulous old Mas is just breathtaking. The views over vineyards span right up to Mont Ventoux and the rest of the hills. The sounds of the cicadas in the trees and the smells of lavender and rosemary from the gardens are the essence of the Luberon. The building itself and the courtyard were stylishly decorated in keeping with the old style. Our room on the first floor was lovely and spacious with chic furnishings and a lovely powerful shower with a fabulous view!
Paul and Caroline were perfect hosts. The breakfasts were fresh and delicious and Caroline was perfectly friendly but her English is not 100% so she prefers to speak in French. Paul on the other hand speaks fluent English and was brilliant at giving us tips for things to see and do in the area. We were even invited to their daughter's birthday party one evening that we stayed which was so wonderful. We were very touched at being involved in such an important family event. The hospitality was brilliant.
The pool was set in amongst the surrounding vineyards and was nice and big and very clean! It was always very calm and quiet by the pool as there were only couples staying whilst we were there but that suited us just fine! All in all, we had a fantastic stay at Les Trois Sources and highly recommend it. The only thing that would be a nice addition would perhaps be some fresh fruit with breakfast.

This is our 4th trip to France. We always stay in Bed and Breakfasts because of the opportunity to talk with the hosts about the area. If all we wanted was nice facilities, we would stay in a hotel, but we enjoy the interaction with our hosts and possibly the other guests. Les Trois Sources has so many positives - I certainly want to point out the nice things: close to Bonnieux (a 5 minute drive), lovely building, spacious room on the top floor with an extra seating area, windows to the west and north providing nice views, walk-in shower, and they provided a hair dryer, Kleenex and bottled water - nice touches. There was also a place to store our wine and a refrigerator was close by to store food. Now for the not-so-positive: The building is fairly close to the main road to Bonnieux, so traffic noise is an issue. We turned on our fan (which was nice to have in the room) to drown out the sound of traffic at night, but it also drowned out the sound of birds. Our room was on the top floor - 3rd floor in US standards, 2nd floor to the French, since they do not count the ground floor as the 1st floor. In any case, you will need to bring luggage up two full flights of stairs to get to the top floor. Breakfasts are OK - bread and crossiants, butter and preserves, OJ, coffee or tea and yogurt. It would have been nice to have some fresh fruit, especially since the parking area was past their cherry trees which were full of fruit. We helped ourselves everyday. We've stayed in many bed and breakfasts and even though the French style is to have baguettes, butter and jam, other hosts have provided fresh fruit, cereals and milk, eggs cooked to order, cheese and ham, freshly baked fruit tarts - or a combination of the above. I think for the price of 142 euro per night, our breakfasts could have been more substantial. But I think what turned us off the most was the demeanor of Caroline, the female host. She does all she can to NOT interact with the guests, even though she spoke English. Upon our arrival, after dealing with car trouble, we were exhausted and looking forward to a nice stay in Bonnieux. Even though I made reservations in December and paid a deposit in January, we were greeted with a very cold, "Do you have reservations?" Upon checking to see that we did indeed have reservations, she took us up to our room, showed us the views and proceeded to give us the rules: " Breakfast is between 9:00 and 10:30; Keep windows and shutters closed during the day; No glass at the pool." She never gave us an alternative to use other than glass, and also never bothered showing us where the pool was. She was in her swimwear and told us she was headed to the pool. After staying there for 4 nights, we never did find the pool - never saw it from our windows, and we did not want to walk through doors that we were not welcome to open. It was a very chilly welcome, indeed. We tried to engage her in conversation - about wine, restaurants, but she was obviously in a hurry to get to the pool. We were able to find a map to Bonnieux the next day and get some leads about restaurants. After being there a couple of days, we discovered that the cellar had a bookcase full of maps, guides, etc. It would have been nice to know that these things existed for our use when we arrived, not when we were about to leave. Breakfast is served by Caroline, and even at that point, there was notconversation - just "coffee or tea?" She really appears to not like what she is doing. Paul, the male host is more welcoming and when we asked him questions, he was great at continuing the conversation and helping with ideas about places to see. If you stay here, talk to Paul.

Room Tip: The rooms on the top floor are up two full flights of stairs and close to the road - so there is traffic noise.

We cannot say enough good things about Les Trois Sources. First, it is located in a beautiful setting among vineyards & between two ancient stone towns, Locoste & Bonnieux, which can be viewed from your room. All rooms have good views. It's location is perfect for taking easy day trips to towns in the Luberon. Rooms are appointed beautifully while still maintaining the charm of the original stone structure. Caroline serves delightful breakfasts with everything fresh, including fresh squeezed orange juice.

What makes this place EXTRA SPECIAL is the kindness & generosity of the owners, Paul & Caroline. We arrived after just having a purse stolen on the TGV train. The purse contained credit cards, a drivers license, a passport & cell phone. Paul & Caroline not only allowed us to use their phone whenever we needed it but also their laptop. Our replacement credit cards were supposed to be arrive overnight from Citibank, but never arrived during the six days we stayed there. Paul offered us so much help during this time & even followed up by e-mail to us once the cards finally arrived (in nine days). He refused the delivery but actually took a photo of the UPS package so we could see the actual date it arrived & followup with the information!

You will do yourself a wonderful favor if you stay at Les Trois Sources. They will give you great advice on day trips, special things to see & will even loan you a map. Beautiful, relaxing & quiet...but make sure you listen to the night sounds...a symphony of birds & frogs in the background....ahhh.

Another source for reliable information is Karen Brown's website. We're relied on her picks for years & she did not miss on this one either.

Room Tip: Our room was exactly as shown on their website. It is the photo on the far left. It is upstairs & has two windows. Price-wise, it is in the middle...not the least or most expensive. Great value. Very truthful website.
