This is one of the prettiest villages of the Luberon. Situated at 420 metres above sea level, the medieval village of Bonnieux dominates the Luberon with spectacular views from the rampart walls of the National Park and the mountain peaks. The village is characterized by its narrow winding streets, ancient fortifications and churches. There are remains of Gallo-Roman villas in and around Bonnieux as well as the magnificent 46 metre Pont Julian built during the Augustan period. The Via Domita, one of the main roads of the Roman Empire linking Spain to Italy, crossed Bonnieux making it an area of major significance. For centuries after the Romans, Bonnieux remained an important settlement. Today it covers about 50 km2 and is the capital of the Vaucluse - a bustling village of restaurants, shops and cafes offering probably the best views over mountains and valleys of the northern Luberon and the vineyards stretching to the south.
