About the Property
Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)
All our 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. Restored with the help of a professional interior designer, it has a welcoming, elegant atmosphere. There is an olive grove, a large 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: "Le Moulin", which belongs to Edouard Loubet, and Reine & Nadia Sammut's 'La Fenière'.
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.
By the way, we try to specialise in stays of at least one week and we feel quite strongly about the advantages of this. You can think of it as quality time - more restful and ore fruitful than moving on too often. Since Lourmarin is well-placed for visiting most of the sights in Provence, our guests often get to see more than they would if they traveled from one town to another, spending time packing and unpacking and driving. And our guests find that Lourmarin itself, although small, has a lot to offer by way of restaurants, shops and art galleries - just five minutes' walk from our apartments. Many of our guests tell us how much they appreciate coming 'home' after a day's touring, and relaxing on their terrace with a glass of wine and a beautiful view, before strolling into the village to have dinner.

About the owner: We've been living in the Luberon for.....sooo many years. Twenty-five 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 21 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, France:
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.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The peace, beauty and timeless charm of the Provençal countryside and a uniquely attractive village. And the welcoming atmosphere at Les Olivettes. It's a place to make friends.
