Absolutely the best!
We just returned from a multi-week trip to France and stayed in a number of HomeAway flats. This apartment in Lourmarin is really an incredible spot and by far our most favorite accommodation. The hosts really go above and beyond to make their guests feel welcome. The small touches were really appreciated. You can feel the pride of ownership. The apartment is well equipped, clean, cozy and super beautiful. The town is charming and fun to explore. We went to the Friday market which was one of the highlights. It was hard to leave such a beautiful place. Thanks for making our stay so wonderful! If I could give 10 stars I would - great job.
comfortable, cozy, sunlit apartment just steps from restaurants, shops, and Friday market.
Good base for exploring Provence. GReat beds.
Perfect place in Lourmarin
This is a perfect apartment for a couple staying in Lourmarin. It is in a wonderful old building, but has been updated to be fully modern. It is very spacious, with 2 large bedrooms, a super-large bathroom, and living area and full kitchen. All appliances are new and of the best quality. WiFi and flat screen TV. It is very light and airy. It is also within yards of the main plaza with all the restaurants and cafes. It has free parking just steps from the apartment and there are always spaces. The owner, Gilberte, is so friendly and welcoming, and we felt she became a friend during our stay. I recommend this apartment very highly, and we hope to return in years to come!
Very charming, thoughtfully presented apartment.
A delightful stay in Lourmarin. Great location for visiting other small villages and local walks. Large interesting market twice a week.
Apartment warm and comfortable despite the Mistral which blew for about 3 days in April. Nice views of rooftops nearby. Plenty of light.
Lots of thoughtful extras such as welcoming wine and spreads. Local calissons. Locally made china and pottery in the cupboards.
The two flights of stairs may be a challenge for some.
Gilberte was very helpful and a pleasure to meet.
Lovely, clean, typically old French building with abundant natural light.
It was a pleasure to stay in Gilberte's charming apartment in Lourmarin. Very comfortable with more space than we imagined, we are certain that we will return soon! This apartment is in the center of a beautiful Provençale town with excellent restaurants, interesting shops and easy parking. I enjoyed a rosé with Gilberte at Café Gaby, très agréable! We are already looking forward to the next visit.
Lovely, comfortable apartment in sweet village
We stayed at La Toupine in late October. It was just as advertised: charming, comfortable, convenient, and immaculate. We even had a welcome basket and bottle of wine waiting for us, so thoughtful. Communication with Alice and Gilberte was quick and excellent. The village, Lourmarin, has cafes and shops and is a great location for exploring Provence. This property is highly recommended!
