Best for views: the Lubéron

Country Life Every Week - - Property Comment -

When it comes to post­card-per­fect Provence, you can’t do much bet­ter than the Lubéron. Prob­a­bly the most pho­tographed lavender fields in the whole of France are in front of the abbey at Sé­nanque, near Gordes, but each and ev­ery hill­side vil­lage along the val­ley of­fers dra­matic and far-reach­ing views that are punc­tu­ated by beau­ti­fully man­aged vine­yards and stone farm­houses.

‘Some of the spe­cial houses in the Lubéron vil­lages have lit­tle gar­dens or out­side spa­ces, so here you can have the best of both worlds—in the ac­tion, with views to die for, but with pri­vate out­door space,’ says Je­lena Cv­jetkovic of Sav­ills In­ter­na­tional.

This four-bed­room house is in the heart of Bon­nieux, a pop­u­lar vil­lage that was once home to John Malkovich. The south-west fac­ing prop­erty of­fers un­in­ter­rupted views onto the Lubéron, the vil­lage of La­coste and the val­ley be­low. €820,000. Sav­ills (020–7016 3740)
