About the Property

Farmhouse, 6 Bedrooms, 6 Baths, (Sleeps 12-14)

A stone's throw from the centre of Lourmarin, widely recognised as one of France's loveliest villages, this traditional Provencal farmhouse has a uniquely welcoming and elegant atmosphere. Many of our guests return year after year with family and friends to enjoy this amazing experience.

Les Olivettes offers six large, luxurious suites, each with private bathroom and four with private galley kitchens. All are grouped around a sumptuous living room with cathedral ceiling and picture window. There is also a spacious central kitchen, three pool-side barbecues and special banquet tables. The unique layout of 'Les Olivettes' makes this home ideal for family reunions, seminars and retreats.

(Please note: for smaller groups, individual apartments can be rented separately. See links below)

The large swimming pool, set in an olive grove, and the Mediterranean gardens with their four decorative stone fountains are special features of this property. The house and grounds offer panoramic views and a peaceful rural setting.

For more information visit our website: www.olivettes.com

A five-minute walk takes you to the many restaurants, galleries, shops and cafes that make Lourmarin such a sought-after holiday destination. Michelin recommended restaurants in Lourmarin include 'Le Moulin', 'La Feniere' and 'Numero 9'

There is a Renaissance chateau to visit, and great opportunities for hiking, biking, and other outdoor activites. Centrally located in the Luberon Natural Park, Lourmarin is within easy reach of Aix, Avignon, and Arles. There are also many other tourist attractions nearby such as the hilltop villages of Gordes and Roussillon, and the active Cistercian Abbey of Senanque.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: Joseph is American, Elizabeth is British, and we have lived in Lourmarin for over twenty years. Our children Claire & Pierre were born here - French is their first language, and our second language.

Why the Owner Chose Lourmarin, France:
Because we were lucky! We'd been looking for a property that would work for a number of years, and all of a sudden Les Olivettes fell into our lap. It's a lovely house, set in an olive grove, with spectacular views of Lourmarin, the Chateau & the Luberon hills, yet it's only five minutes walk from the village centre.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Views & proximity (on foot) to 'one of the most beautiful villages in France'. 15 restaurants, several cafés, lots of boutiques & galleries, one of the best markets in Provence.
