Apart from being an impressive French village based in the Luberon region, itís the views from its hilltop position that deserve as much of the accolade. Looking out across a patchwork of cherry orchards, vineyards and mountains, itís a view you can get lost in for quite some time. But, if you can manage to pull yourself away, there are plenty of restaurants and cafes to revel in, a pretty market selling local produce on a Friday morning, and even a bakery museum. The Musee de la Boulangerie in the rue de la Republique shows how artisan bread is made. At the top of the village is the 12th century Roman, Gothic church 'Vieille Eglise.' Worth visiting, again for the views across the Monts de Vaucluse, Mont Ventoux, and also Lacoste, Gordes and Roussillon, but also, the church is home to some wonderful summer classical concerts. Finally, Bonnieux is home to The Luberon Experience, a tour that takes you to the some of the more unknown places and experiences in the region.
