Why Kristine and Thierry chose Luberon

We bought this property so we could have a typical village quality of life 'a la provencale'..without using a car. The house is located in the heart of Lourmarin and was remodeled with the finest quality materials. Furnished as a personal residence rather than as a rental unit as we try to spend as much time there as we can!!...we love it there, we hope you will too!!!

NOTE: To avoid VRBO's new traveler high booking fees, please contact us directly by email or telephone for pricing quote. FYI, clicking on the site's "Instant Quote" button will add these unnecessary fees to the quote.

What makes this cottage unique

Delightful apartment in the heart of Lourmarin

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I recently had occasion to spend a few days of our vacation in lovely Lourmarin, located approximately an hour south and east of Avignon in southern France. While there we stayed in this lovely property owned and operated by Kristine Marc. The property itself was perfect for us with kitchen facilities, laundry, a comfortable sitting area, and large master bedroom along with an intimate, relaxing private courtyard for morning coffee or afternoon wine . Lourmarin, although a small village has plenty to offer, including good restaurants, coffee shops, fresh pastries, interesting food and artisan markets, as well as art studios and shops. The other appealing feature of the village was its close proximity to a number of other small towns in the region, all of which were quite interesting to visit and explore. Looking forward to going back soon !

We found our perfect getaway GEM in Lourmarin!!!

  • 5 of 5

We found our perfect getaway Gem in our favorite village of Provence! Maison Amelie, is a charming house with a beautiful, manicured sunny private garden...and yes, IN THE CENTER OF VILLAGE!!!!! The House is immaculate, with an accent of Eclectic style and attention to detail!! Owners, Kristine and Thierry could not have been more helpful!!

The bedroom is quite spacious with a very comfortable king size bed. Parking was easy( a small parking lot steps away from the house). Kristine 's book of recommendations for restaurants and sightseeing was most helpful to concentrate of the MUST SEE places!!(We enjoyed lunching and dining at the locals ' favorites places in different villages of the region).

Walking distance from the cottage, you will find restaurants, shops, and cafés. Chez Gaby, was our favorite...where locals hang out for conversations while sharing a pastis!! Do not miss out on the Friday market in Lourmarin, we highly recommend it!!

The help and suggestions offered by Kristine made our stay memorable!! it was hard to leave this perfect Gem! We highly recommend this lovely home !! We cannot wait to be back!! Thank you!!

A perfect hidden cottage in the heart of Lourmarin

  • 5 of 5

Amelie is all that the prospectus promises and more. Behind a flaking blue wooden door at the end of the main street in Lourmarin is a lovely little courtyard, hidden from the world outside, but just in touch with the sounds and life of this lovely Luberon town. The cottage is perfect for two people – it is a bit like the Tardis; it seems small, but all you need is cunningly tucked away and there is a big welcoming bed and many stylistic touches. There is an excellent restaurant literally on the doorstep and many more within five minute's walk, along with a boulangerie and two small supermarkets, not to mention the magnificent Friday market that almost overwhelms you with its cornucopia of produce. Half day drives will take you through the wonders of the Grand and Petit Luberon villages. Do not miss Oppede le Vieux. Meanwhile Kristine will be a most charming multilingual landlady with a wealth of local information, especially about the best places to eat. There is plenty of parking in the vicinity, but although you are almost in the heart of the town it is a haven of peace.

A Lourmarin Jewel

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our five night stay in la Maison Amelie. Our communication with Kristine was always timely and friendly and her English is excellent. For those of you concerned about parking a rental car away from the house, there is no need to worry as parking in the town center is safe and a very short walk away.

The cottage has a very sensible layout and we had everything we needed. For those of you wishing to spend a pleasant holiday in Provence, I highly recommend a stay in this delightful village. We would gladly book again at la Maison Amelie. Merci beaucoup!

Two wonderful weeks in La Maison Amelie

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent two glorious weeks in La Maison Amelie, a gorgeous little Provençal cottage. The house was ideally located in the centre of Lourmarin, a magical bustling medieval village.

The house was spotlessly clean and well equipped; it was like a home from home. We enjoyed relaxing in the private, shady courtyard; a welcome treat after a day's sight seeing.

The weather was very hot, but the air conditioning helped keep us cool. The kitchen, living area and bathroom are on one level. The large spacious bedroom is downstairs, in the basement of the house, accessed via a little stone staircase. Sometimes it got very hot in the bedroom at night.

Lourmarin is "the prettiest" French village we have ever stayed in. We loved people watching in Cafe Gabby's, strolling along the cobbled streets, exploring all the little shops and eating out. There were so many restaurants to chose from. Our favourite, Nonni's was literally on our doorstep.

We didn't get the chance to meet Kristine and Thierry but Kristine constantly kept in touch with us via email and telephone, checking we had everything we needed. A very attentive hostess who speaks excellent English!

Exquisite Cottage in Lourmarin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Maison d'Amelie for two weeks in July 2015 and loved it. Everything the other reviewers have said is true. The cottage itself is very well equipped and beautifully presented. The attention to detail is extraordinary. It is as if it has been lifted from the pages of a magazine but it is real and it is a joy to stay there. The courtyard garden is exquisite and very private, and we ate breakfast there every day and dinner when we were home. There weather was extremely hot during our stay but the house remained cool (with the help of the air-conditioning) and the downstairs bedroom was always lovely and cool, so we always slept well.

Kristine and Thierry were very easy to deal with and nothing was too much trouble for them. Kristine was also very helpful with restaurant suggestions, both in Lourmarin and in neighbouring villages, that took us to places we would never have found on our own and we had some memorable meals as a result, and this was our 3rd holiday in Lourmarin. It is such a beautiful village we keep coming back and the Friday markets are probably the best we have experienced anywhere in France - a big call - but they really are very good.

Maison d'Amelie is perfect for couples, and we will happily stay there again when next we return to Lourmarin.
