“The pizza is good but the number one reason to come here is the AMAZING VIEWS at sunset. From atop the village of Bonnieux you'll get an amazing view of the entire valley and Mont Ventoux in the background. Book a table outside with a view.”

“Bonnieux has some interesting places to visit (Le Jardin de la Louve; La Forêt des Cèdres), and is good for provisions: food shopping, clothes shopping (L'Aubergine has good fashion brands such as Aspesi), antique shopping. L'Auberge de Canorgue is one of the best local wines. Good cafés and Le Fournil is a good restaurant.”

“On aime bien cette école là ! Pour les nostalgiques de l'école primaire d'antan, avec d'authentiques cartes de géographie de l'époque en décoration, une carte d'inspiration manuel scolaire et des énigmes logiques à résoudre ; une très belle cour de récréation ou il fait bon dîner en été ; la maîtresse des lieux est vraiment sympathique et la cuisine de grande qualité. Beaucoup de bons points à la clef !”

Locality
“Lacoste is a picturesque village for sightseeing and photos. The traditional local architecture and cobblestone streets give the impression that time has stood still. The origins of the chateau de Lacoste are in the 11th century, but the Chateau de Lacoste is best known for its most notorious resident, Donatien Alphonse Francois Comte de Sade, the Marquis de Sade, who lived in the castle in the 18th century and made extensive renovations including creating a theatre. During the French Revolution, the castle was vandalised and largely destroyed. In 1952, André Bouer, college teacher, became the owner and dedicated himself to the castle's restoration. In the 1990s, the ruins of the castle, along with an attached quarry, were bought by fashion designer Pierre Cardin, and in summer each year, he organises a musical /theâtre festival in the castle, its courtyard and the nearby quarry which he transformed into a large outdoor performance area and stage. festivaldelacoste.com Adding to the town's reputation as an artistic haven, The Lacoste School of the Arts was founded in 1970 by American art professor and painter, Bernard Pfriem. The Savannah College of Art and Design has run the school since 2002 hosting four quarters of classes for art students and professors from all corners of the globe, studying fine arts, writing, architecture, design, fashion, film, photography, sculpture, and theater. The SCAD gift shop is worth a visit and sells some merchandise from former students and professors.”

Point of Interest
“This 3 B.C. Roman bridge over the Calavon river is on the ancien Via Domitia, an important Roman road which linked Italy to the Roman territories in France. Traffic continued to use this bridge up until the new one was built just over a decade ago.”

“si vous visitez le village de Lacoste, monter jusqu'à l'entrée du château de Lacoste , admirer la vue panoramique Bonnieux, Goult , Roussillon, le mont Ventoux et le Luberon. Prenez le temps de vous arrêter en terrasse du café de France pour boire un verre ou un café , la vue est simplement extraordinaire ”
