Property description

'Les Olivettes', a spacious Provençal farmhouse converted into luxury apartments, is located just 700 yards from the centre of Lourmarin, widely considered one of France's loveliest villages. These elegant accommodations offer a peaceful,rural base for touring Provence.

All apartments have spectacular village and mountain views, and yet are only a five minute walk from the many shops, restaurants,
galleries, and cafés that help make Lourmarin one of the most sought-after destinations in Provence.

For many years this house belonged to a wealthy Parisian surgeon who used it as his country retreat. Recently restored with the help of a professional interior designer, it has a welcoming, elegant atmosphere. There is an olive grove, a large heated swimming pool and ample gated parking.

Each private apartment has a queen-size bed (some canopied or four-poster) along with a mixture of antiques and contemporary furnishings. The pool, the olive grove, the Mediterranean herb and flower gardens and sculpted fountains all combine to create a harmonious and restful atmosphere.

A center for fine dining, Lourmarin has fifteen restaurants, including two of which are recommended in the Michelin Guide: Reine Sammut's 'La Fenière', and 'L'Antiquaire'

In Lourmarin there is a remarkable Renaissance château to visit, and great opportunities for hiking, biking, and other outdoor activites. The village is ideally located in the Luberon Natural Park, within easy reach of Aix, Avignon, Arles and the world-famous antiques centre of Isle-sur-la-Sorgue.

Other nearby favorite attractions include the hilltop villages of Gordes and Roussillon, and the working Cistercian Abbey of Sénanque with its famous lavender fields.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We've been living in the Luberon for.....sooo many years. Twenty to be exact. In fact, our daughter who is just about that age now was born here. So was our son, Pierre, who is now 6'3' and over 15 years old. Anyway, we love the life we have in Lourmarin. We eat very well, drink good wine almost every day and we've made lots of wonderful friends from all over the world running our rental business here.

Why the Owner Chose Lourmarin:
We were so lucky to be able to buy this house! Les Olivettes has two remarkable advantages - it is within easy walking distance of our favourite Provencal village, Lourmarin, and yet has spectacular views of the village itself (officially classified as one of the most beautiful villages in France), the Luberon hills and the chateau.
