Lorsque le soleil brûle, se baigner face au grand paysage...Hmm!Devant la carrière, tout l'espace pour se garer.

We stayed three days at this amazing hidden gem. Found it randomly and i could not be happier:) Philipe has turned the cave into a dream environment to get away from everything. The room was lovely, the veiw spectacular, and it is such a beautiful merge of architecture and nature. The breakfast offered was lovely and the silence in the area made it a great place to be. The nature around is just gorgeous to explore. Great experience. Thank you Philipe and Lien

Philippe's place was very charming and unique. My wife and I stayed here for several days during our honeymoon, and we'll remember this part of the trip for its character. The surrounding Luberon is stunning, and nearby Bonnieux is an adorable Provencal town. Phillippe and his wife were exceptional hosts, deftly accommodating our changing schedule, preparing delicious breakfasts, yet also always respecting our privacy. They also provided us with recommendations for the area and even arranged dinner reservations at a local restaurant during our stay. The room itself is, as accurately described, a cave carved into limestone as part of an abandoned mine. This gives it a totally unique aesthetic. It does also mean that it is cool, humid, a bit dark, and lacking in cellular reception. Set expectations accordingly; we had to adjust a little after coming from the sunny and dry Cote d'Azur. Otherwise the property is very open and scenic, with a lovely infinity pool overlooking the valley, and plenty of wooded area for wandering.

Beautiful "apartment" in such a unique location. Philippe and Lien are great hosts. Philippe provided a great background to the area and some history which really contributed to our understanding of the area. The location is very unique and something quite special.

An incredible, one-off experience that is somewhat indescribable. The space is unlike anything we've encountered and a must-see. Great walks and lots of local history to explore as well as many nearby towns/places of interest. Philippe and Lien were both so lovely and informative and the breakfast every morning was delicious. The pool area had stunning views and a real sun trap. Definitely visit!

Me and my partner had a lovely stay at what can only be described as a truly unique air b&b (and we have stayed in many). Philippe and Lien were always only a message away prior to and during our stay. The main thing to note is that you need your own car, we rented one which allowed us to see the quaint and unspoilt villages in the area. There are no taxis so when we wanted to have a drink Philippe organised his friend to take us to and from the village of Bonnieux. He was great and reliable but it did cost €20 each way. Breakfast was provided and we had the pool, with exceptional views, all to ourselves. Thank you Philippe and Lien for a memorable stay in Bonnieux
