Bonnieux was a fortified village as early as 972 AD. Built on a plateau above the valley, this is one of the prettiest villages in the area with a stunning view. The houses spread out on the hillside form a striking set of earth-toned colours and shapes. No matter what route you take to Bonnieux, you will see the church tower well before you arrive. At a height of 425m, the tower dominates the countryside and the surroundings of this magnificent village. It also has a number of pretty shops and cafes where you can happily while away a few hours before a chilled rose!
