Peaceful and private, the two-story house, ca. 1,300 sq. ft., is surrounded by a charming country garden with a shallow pool perfect for children and also enjoyed by adults. Two patios open to both the living room and kitchen, each with a different orientation giving one a choice of sun or shade according to the time of day. Picturesque lanes leading to the center of Lourmarin are perfect for a pleasant, short walk.

Located at the foot of the Lubéron hills, the home is a half hour drive to Aix-en-Provence. The village of Lourmarin bears the official title "Un des Plus Beaux Villages de France"; it is indeed one of the most beautiful small towns in the country, bathed in soft golden light. A pleasant half-mile walk brings you to the village’s old houses, shops, galleries, restaurants, excellent boulangerie and outdoor market.
This southern part of the Lubéron is easy to reach from Aix and the freeway.

We enjoyed having the pool to enjoy the last days of summer. Proximity to the village and the hilltop villages near by was great. The onwer surprised us with a lovely melon and figs she'd picked from her sister's tree. We loved our candlelight dinners in the summer kitchen! Perfect setting for anyone who wants to dive into French cooking. Great for hikers/bikers too. Our son rode every day and was thrilled by his 105 mi. trek to the top of Le Mont Ventoux and back. Our family will share these memories forever. Julie S. Victoria, MN. Aug 2014

We had a wonderful trip and our home in Lourmarin was spectacular.  Everything we had hope for and even more...including fresh strawberries each day from our landlady!
