My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights during our honeymoon, using it as a base to explore the Luberon hilltop towns. There are many beautiful properties in this part of France and we did a lot of research. In the end, we were so happy we chose Le Clos les Eydins and it was a perfect place to relax.
The location is great. It is in Bonnieux but not way up on the hill, serviced by well paved/lit roads. Lots of parking and felt very secure. Totally quiet at night. Beautiful olive trees and gardens all around, plus lots to keep you entertained even if you don't leave the property (e.g. petanque, table tennis, pool, large living room with books).
The hosts, Marie-Line and Nicholas were both so warm and helpful. They were great sources for information on what to do and see and offered to help with any details, such as recommending or booking restaurants. They were always around and accessible. They really make you feel taken care of and pampered with all the little details and touches (e.g. remembering your tea orders at breakfast the next day!). Speaking of breakfast, it was such a filling and delicious spread -- local cheese and charcuterie, fresh baked bread, pastries, eggs/bacon, fresh fruit plate...
The room was very comfortable and clean with L'Occitane bath products and very comfortable beds. There is also tea/coffee in your room. Upon arrival, you are given a small vial of lavender essential oil from their lavender field. We made use of their shared kitchen a couple times and it was a nice way to take a break from eating heavy restaurant meals, and also a great way to meet fellow travellers. We met some lovely people from all over the world.
Compared to staying at a large hotel, we loved the personalized and friendly vibe of this place and can not recommend it enough.
It is very difficult to add to all of the excellent reviews!
For us, the highlights were the location, the comfortable room, the pool area and the garden kitchen and the list could go on.
However the icing on the cake is the love and attention that has gone into every detail, that makes this a very comfortable and stylish place to be, and the care and attention given by the hosts, Marie-Line and Nicolas, making each guest feel so special and welcome. Nothing is a problem.
A hard job which they make seem effortless!
We would totally recommend this as a base for a break in the Luberon.
We both loved staying here . From the friendly warm welcome , to the sad farewell , our hosts Mary-line and Nicholas , were fantastic. Nothing was too much ,and their local knowledge was invaluable to planning our days out . Each room is so thoughtfully and tastefully decorated , with such an eye for detail . The gardens and pool are gorgeous. How often do you sit in an olive orchard next to a huge field of lavender , and eat dinner . Breakfasts were amazing . Couldn’t praise this spot highly enough . Thank you
We stayed at Les Eydins, along with 6 other travelers, for a week through a tour arranged by Your Private Provence. Marie-Line and Nicolas learned everyone's names on the first day. By the second morning, they knew our coffee/ tea preferences and how each person wanted their eggs cooked. The table settings were lovely, and different, each morning. The room we stayed in was fully stocked with everything we needed, including a complimentary bottle of wine from a nearby vineyard. The pool area was delightful and the honor bar/ kitchen was convenient. I cannot recommend Le Clos Les Eydins highly enough. It is a beautiful property, which provided a comfortable and convenient home-base for our tour throughout the region. The hosts are absolutely incredible at what they do. We definitely hope to return!
We've recently returned from our second wonderful visit to this beautiful guest house, home to two of the most warm and welcoming hosts you could ever wish to meet! Le Clos les Eydins is a place of pure tranquility, positioned close to Bonnieux in the rolling, open countryside, lavender and poppy fields of the Luberon valley. Rooms are beautifully chic with thoughtful, Provençal decor, set in the shade to one side of a courtyard garden filled with flowers and fresh herbs, in the shade of leafy trees. The property has a beautiful pool, with plenty of comfortable loungers on which to relax, and a well conceived Summer kitchen with all mod cons, perfect for rustling up a romantic evening meal to enjoy by the pool at the end of a day exploring the wonderful markets in nearby villages.
Breakfasts are a sheer delight and reflect the time and thought given to every small and perfect detail - from the pretty table setting to the fresh fruit salad waiting for you as you step out of your room in the morning..
This guest house really is a little piece of heaven on earth - we recommend you add it to your 'must visit' list today!
