SPACIOUS VILLA IN SUPERB GARDENS IN ONE OF FRANCE'S PRETTIEST VILLAGES

Lourmarin Villa Rental Photos and Description

Oasis of calm with fabulous pool and extensive terraces - sleeps 12

Only ten minutes walk from the centre of Lourmarin, this lovely vine-covered villa offers total tranquility in its one and a half acres of beautiful garden, kept permanently green by its own artesian well. In winter, you may choose to relax in the spacious sitting room in front of the huge romantic log fire, but summer will probably find you eating, reading, or just soaking up the sun around the 12m pool or on the sweeping stone terraces that surround the house. Completely refurbished four years ago, it can accommodate up to 12 people in six bedrooms: two are on the ground floor with French window access into the terraces making them perfect for older people or those with mobility problems and two are in a self-contained lower ground floor, ideal for teenagers or those who want to get away from their fellow guests. There is a large fully-equipped summer house complete with American fridge and ice-making machine, BBQ and its own shower and toilet. All towels and linen are provided.

Suitability:
  • pets considered
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • wheelchair accessible
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • children welcome

House was wonderful

  • 5 of 5
The house was wonderful and extremely well equipped with everything that we needed and it really met the description. The house was in a fabulous part of France with lots to do locally. We would highly recommend it as a holiday to anyone.

A wonderful house and garden

  • 5 of 5
This was a most attractive house which was comfortable,clean,,quiet and well-equipped.
The garden was beautifully planted and private with a wonderful pool..The house
is on the edge of the lovely village of Lourmarin,in the beautiful region of the
Luberon.We loved the shopping,the restaurants and the wonderful Friday market..There is so much to see in the area.
I will certainly recommend it to my friends and would love to return. .

A lovely house, but not perfect

  • 4 of 5
The gardens of this house are beautiful, but we found some of the facilities and hospitality lacking a little. A welcome was completely missing...even airbnb hosts offer a bottle of wine. It'd be nice if the wobbly pool rail was fixed, and nonslip strips were put on the steps rather than cut up bath mats, and there were slightly too many bossy rules...given we are driving our garbage to the dump must we really pull out then stack all the pool furniture back in the garage too? The kitchen is adequate...but not great for cooks keen to whip up the market's bounty...and we never managed to find a safe, non highway ten minute walk into town...if there really is an alternative to the five minute drive, please let renters know the route. You can hear the road from the pool, which is big, private and lovely, .didn't really bother us. On a sunny afternoon after a morning's touring and a lazy lunch, lying by the pool, any concerns did melt away. Don't miss dinner at Auberge la Feniere. Still a lovely house and highlight of our six week vacation...but could easily be more welcoming.

Owner's Response: I am disappointed by this review which certainly does not reflect the exchange of e-mails that I had with the guest concerned, in which he had nothing but praise for the house. I would also wish to correct an inaccuracy: our guidelines to guests do not ask them to stack the garden furniture in the garage. We simply ask people not to leave rugs and cushions on the lawns overnight to avoid their getting soaked by the sprinkler system. I note his comments about "welcome packs" but we are not, nor do we claim to be, professional hoteliers, we are simply a family letting out our lovely house when we are not using it.

An absolutely wonderful house in a perfect locate

  • 5 of 5
We had an absolutely fantastic holiday - 2 families with children (including one wheelchair). The pictures don't do the house and garden justice - it is beautiful and equipped with everything you could need. Lourmarin is a lovely place with many other charming villages an easy drive away as well as the spectacular drive up into the Luberon. Thank you. We hope we can come back.

Another wonderful holiday at this lovely house.

  • 5 of 5
We had another fantastic holiday at this beautiful house. It is so well equipped and maintained that we cannot fault it. We again attended a most enjoyable concert at the Chateau in Lourmarin. We will definitely recommend this to friends and family.

La Laure in Lourmarin

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a super week at La Laure and our first visit to Provence. There were eleven adults and one baby in our party and this lovely house suited our needs perfectly. It was very well equipped and we had all our meals in the summer house overlooking the garden. The lovely weather ensured we all made good use of the pool and BBQ. Lourmarin was a charming village with lots of bars, cafes, restaurants and interesting art shops. We visited the castle and enjoyed the views. We visited Avignon, as well as some vineyards and beautiful villages. The younger members of our group hired bicycles, a great way to see the countryside. We would love to return in the future.

Car: recommended

Lourmarin, acclaimed as one of the prettiest villages in France, is a unique mixture of sophistication and unspoiled Provencal charm. The art galleries, craft shops and the famous Friday market attract visitors from miles around as does the celebrated 16thc chateau where concerts and other cultural events are held regularly through the summer months. The area is famous for the number and variety of its restaurants which range from simple bistros, ideal for family meals, to some of the most renowned exponents of gastronomy in the South of France. More energetic visitors will enjoy cycling trips or walks throughout the Luberon hills and some of the other villages in the area – Merindol, Gordes, Bonnieux, to name but a few, are bound to be on your must-visit list because of their historical connections or breathtaking natural beauty. One thing is for certain: you will not be bored.
