Why the Owner Chose Lourmarin: We chose Lourmarin because it is a very special place, for its varied and exquisite landscapes, for the easy and fast access from anywhere thanks to the TGV at Avignon and Aix-en-Provence or from the international Marseille Airport “Marignane” or Nice international Airport. The property is on the edge of Lourmarin and offers magnificient landscapes onto the valley and the village of La Roque d’Anthéron (festival of piano in summer time), onto the Alpilles or towards the village of Lourmarin and the Luberon's hills. It is wooded with pins, olive trees, cypress, oaks… and has the scent of thym and rosemary. The village offers a lively life and marvelous food and wine in more than fifteen gastronomic restaurants.
