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

Beautiful Villa in Lourmarin

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly recommend this beautiful villa in Lourmarin in the Luberon Valley. We were a party of 4 couples from New Zealand and had been traveling for 5 weeks before arriving at the villa so the pool and private gardens were very welcome. Everything was as had been stated and more. Good instructions given by the owner and prompt assistance, when required, made out stay most enjoyable. The Villa had all mod cons and we had to admire the owner who is quite happy to rent this peace of paradise to complete strangers. We enjoyed visiting the surrounding villages with their quaint streets and alley ways and found everyone to be very friendly. One of the highlights was the Lourmarin market which is very extensive. Loved the red squirrels in the trees.

A beautiful spacious home

  • 5 of 5

We had a superb week in this lovely well equipped and very spacious home. It is set in the most beautiful gardens and all so peaceful, yet just a short drive to the village, where parking is plentiful and free! It is great for all ages and my elderly parents particularly enjoyed having their usual UK TV channels to watch in the evening. It is definitely a home away from home. The booking process was very easy and the owner more than helpful. We hope to return again!!

A fantastic week in a gorgeous house

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in July in this beautiful house and it really was everything we hoped for. The pool and grounds are simply stunning and very well kept, I must mention the floating pool mattresses as they are fantastic and so much fun.

The house itself is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need for your stay. In particular I loved the wonderful collection of books and the DVD selection, there really is something for everyone.

We were a group of ten and there was plenty of room for everyone. Also with a large group it worked out as excellent value and we saved a fortune in comparison to what we would have spent on a hotel.

We would definitely return as the village itself is lovely and the house is a perfect base for exploring the Provence region.

The owner is incredibly helpful and the booking process was very easy. We would highly recommend this villa.

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.

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.

Map

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.
