What we love
- Two pools, spa and tennis court
- Set in 60 acres of private land
- A 5-minute walk from Lourmarin
Located in the heart of Luberon, Bastide du Bonheur is an incredibly spacious estate that sleeps up to 34 people over 15 sumptuous bedrooms and suites. A luxurious residence that retains its traditional French features, the villa is a five-minute walk from Lourmarin, one of France's most picturesque villages. The town of Bonnieux is 15 minutes away by car across a tapestry of vineyards and orchards, while Gordes and Aix-en-Provence can both be reached in a 45-minute drive. Surrounded by 60 acres of private land and immaculate landscaped gardens, this is the ideal destination for travellers looking for seclusion and total escapism.
Bastide du Bonheur is the perfect place for conjuring up a spirit of joie de vivre among close friends and family. The historic stone buildings offer ample space and afford a host of exceptional amenities. The main house comprises 12 bedrooms, while the second building on the site contains 2 en-suite queen-size bedrooms and one king, suitable for guests with reduced mobility or those in search of extra privacy. The outdoor space is a haven dedicated to rejuvenation with two pools, a spa, a hammam – or Turkish bath – and a massage table. A tennis court completes the picture, and the al fresco dining layout can host up to 34 guests.
Spend hazy days meandering through the rolling countryside on horseback or mountain bike. Indulge your appetite for culture by immersing yourself in the galleries, boutiques and high-end restaurants of Lourmarin. Head to Aix-en-Provence to sample a taste of authentic local life at Les Deux Garcons, the region's legendary brasserie. Tackle the Route des Vins for a taste of the world’s finest wine, or simply bask in the warmth of the French sun on the poolside loungers. However you choose to unwind and recharge, Bastide du Bonheur will provide the ultimate Provençal getaway.

If you would like to see Paris, fly to Charles de Gaulle Airport then connect directly to the TGV(high speed train) from CDG TGV2 to Avignon TGV(3 hours direct) and rent a car. You would plan to see Paris on the way back, taking the TGV from Avignon TGV to Gare de Lyon, getting a cab to your hotel in the city.
