About Fiona and Jamie Reith
Having fallen in love with France as a student I had always dreamed of living there. Before our family came along we bought and renovated this property. We live in Scotland and try to visit Lourmarin as often as we can.
Fiona and Jamie Reith purchased this Townhome in 2005
Why Fiona and Jamie Reith chose Lourmarin
We bought our house because of its classic proportions and central village location. The quiet setting is within walking distance of all that Lourmarin has to offer.
What makes this Townhome unique
We bought the property because of the top floor terrace although we do all enjoy sitting on the doorstep watching the world go by.

Delightful Provençal town house in Lourmarin
Our party of four old friends needed a place to stay near Rognes to visit family living there. This delightful Provençal town house fitted the bill perfectly. It has great character, typically French, with three good size bedrooms and a lovely terrace where we enjoyed pre-dinner drinks before going down into the town for dinner. Lourmarin is arguably the prettiest village in France, like Padstow but without the port. The Friday market was easily the best market I have ever seen, full of delicious local produce and lovely stalls of well priced scarves, etc. We were within easy driving reach of the well known towns of Avignon, Arles and Aix en Provence, and we discovered delightful gems in Isle sur la Sorgue and Bonnieux.I had received very friendly instructions from Jamie and Fiona, the owners of this charming house, and we got eventually used to the hourly chiming of the adjacent clock tower. Lourmarin's restaurants and cafés are plentiful and great value. The boulangerie in the square sells the most amazing almond croissants and the chilled delicate rosé from the region can be enjoyed in every bar. The colours of Provence are amazing. Blue cloudless skies, blue purple lavender fields, silver olive trees and endless rows of vine trees. It was wonderful to leave Bristol Airport in the wind and rain, 17 degrees, then arrive in lovely Marseille where the sun was shining and already the temperature was 33 degrees. It got hotter every day and we were lucky to be able to cool off in our friend's pool some afternoons. One week was no where near long enough in this wonderful region of France - we will have to come back! And I can't think of anywhere better to stay than at the house of Famille Reith in Place Horlorge.
The Perfect Place for Our Family
This townhouse is so special to my family. My mother had just broken her ankle a few weeks earlier on our long planned trip across the South of France and we arrived into Lourmarin for recouperation. I knew as soon as we saw this house we knew that we'd made the right choice. It was so very pretty, at the highest point in the village, with all the great boutiques, galleries and restaurants just a minute away. Although Mum's ankle meant that we didn't get to spend enough time on the top floor terrace, we loved eating food from the Saturday market in the dining room with the doors thrown open. We only intended to stay for 10 days but ended up staying another week. There was a fantastic festival called 'Yeah' on while we were there, the restaurants were brilliant and the locals couldn't have been more accommodating, particularly the village GP Dr Pascale Leurent-Baschin whose care for my Mum was outstanding and continued long after we left the village. There are so many beautiful villages to see in the area. Lourmarin is a must and this house is a great place to experience it.
Delightful village, delightful house
We stayed for a week and had a lovely lovely time. Comfortable, pretty, fully equipped house with everything you could think of that you might need. Comfortable beds and sheets. Check in and out was very easy, making the arrangements was very easy, I would recommend it to anyone heading that way, and came upon it myself via word of mouth from a trusted source. Lots of space for us with our 2 children, could have fitted the third if he had come too. The village is charming (but watch the parking notices on market day) and so is the surrounding area. Great base for a visit to the South of France.
Thank you for the use of your lovely home. We had a great vacation and particularly enjoyed staying in Lourmarin. The location of the house was great and our children particularly loved walking to the bakery in the morning to order their pain au chocolat. My favorite thing was eating dinner out on the 3rd floor terrace! The only thing that I think could be improved on would be to have Internet access. It would've been nice to be able to get online to check directions and when certain places we wanted to visit would be open. Thanks again!
Thank you for your comments. We are glad you enjoyed your stay in our house. It is perfectly located for the bakery and we love eating on the terrace, too!
We have taken note of your feedback and for the 2015 season the house now has wifi.
Bright,clean, well appointed and ideally located.
This property is a gem. The location is excellent and the property is spacious and has all that is needed for a great holiday. The owners are most helpful with great advice on where to eat and what to see. Lourmarin is a wonderful village with plenty to do and see.
This is one of the best holiday accommodations we have ever stayed in. Lots of space, nice decoration, well equipped and very comfortable. Great location (town centre). I would like to recommend this house to anyone. It's like a being home far from home :)
Lourmarin is in the heart of the Luberon, perfect for visiting the chateaux or vinyards of Provence, shopping the local markets for fresh produce and antiques or just sitting in the cafes and watching the world go by. In Lourmarin itself, there is an impressive Renaissance chateau and lots of galleries to visit. Drive through the 'Comb de Lourmarin' to discover Peter Mayle country - Gordes, Lacoste and Menerbes. On to the market at Coustellet for a real farmers' market and Isle Sur Sorgue for antiques. The main cities of Avignon, Aix en Provence and Marseille are all well worth a day trip. Head for Cassis for a pretty port with boat trips around the coast. Lourmarin is perfect for families - mini-golf, tennis and a play park for children. For the adults, cycling and rock-climbing are popular. The village boasts a great selection of restaurants as well as small grocery stores and the Friday market.
