Stylish & comfortable apartment a delight
We spent three wonderful summer weeks in this stylish apartment. It is perfectly located overlooking the market square - close to day-to-day village life, but away from the touristy cafe precinct. And, the underground car park and lift are a rare bonus.
The apartment is even lovelier than the photos depict, roomy and very comfortable. Plentiful storage space allowed us to unpack and settle in for our stay with our bags out of out of sight - and out of mind.
We love preparing meals from local produce and the well-equipped kitchen made that very easy. We had a glass of rosé and dinner on the balcony most evenings.
The local market is as vibrant and colourful as everyone has said. But our absolute favourite was the small Producers’ Market and cooking demonstrations held on Tuesday evenings from May – October at the former fruit co-operative just across the road from the rear of the apartment building. In the few minutes it took for one of us to return to the apartment with our produce, the other would buy a couple of very reasonably-priced glasses of wine and grab a table. Then we'd relax in the late-afternoon sunshine, with our wine and a pre-dinner snack conjured up from our market purchases while watching a local chef make simple 'Street Food' for tasting. Bliss!
Lourmarin proved an ideal base for exploring; we made good use of the Provence Byways guide provided in the apartment,and even purchased a downloadable copy of our own.
We were welcomed warmly at our favourite café just below – La Reserve - where our coffees were often delivered without us even having to order.
We would love to return to Lourmarin and the apartment in the future.
We brought my sister to Lourmarin to celebrate her 70th birthday. This charming apartment was our staging ground. It was perfect for enjoying all of Lourmarin by foot so we often did not have to take the car out of the garage. It was central to traveling to the other villages near Lourmarin. We loved discovering all the nearby treasures, going to evening concerts awakening to the market sounds in the plaza, enjoying the comforts of the apartment. Our hostess was charming and assured our comfort throughout. Thank you!
This is truly a gem of a place in a magical part of the world. Not only is the location incredible but the apartment has a tranquil feel to it, so that even though you are overlooking a square, you feel so calm and relaxed inside. Thank you for sharing this special place with us. We ate incredible food, drank great rose, spent our days wondering around, and on Friday we could not get enough of the superb local market. The village is also perfectly located for day trips to surrounding villages or for a drive to the coast for a swim in the sea. Just perfect.
Wonderful apartment in the most beautiful village in the Provence area.
What a great apartment in the centre of the village. The apartment overlooks the square which is filled with a huge local market on Fridays. The apartment is a great size, 2 large bedrooms, large modern bathroom, second separate toilet with another separate shower and laundry. The kitchen is very well equipped with bosch stove, separate oven, microwave, large fridge and dishwasher. Everything you would need to cook is there. We enjoyed several home cooked meals while staying at the apartment. Lourmarin is a beautiful village, one of the nicest in Provence and centrally located so our travels each day took us on many adventures. There is a resturant right below the apartment along with a wine store and a small grocery store very close. The bakery is right up the street. What more could you ask for. We loved the apartment and would highly recommend it to fellow travellers. The covered underground parking was a big plus. It was perfect for a relaxing stay in beautiful Lourmarin.

We loved the apt and perfect for a home base for travel. The apt has all the needed items and then some. The pictures are as true as the experience. Grete was the perfect hostess. She did such a great job orientating us to the town and apt we did not have to contact her at all during our stay. On one day we had breakfast in Provence, lunch in Monte Carlo, dinner in Italy and back "home" in 12 hours. Vincent your apt and your communication with us was seamless. We hope to return and stay longer and will refer our friends. Please use us as a reference. Mark and Kathi Mansfield Atlanta Georgia USA
We had the privilege to share this lovely apartment with another couple for 2 weeks and what a wonderful apartment it turned out to be. We have travelled to France for 10 years now and this is by far the best apartment we have ever found. The rooms are spacious with very large cupboards, the kitchen has all the appliances, cutlery, utensils, glasses and crockery that one needs to make food and enjoy it at the dining table which can seat 6 or even 8. This was very useful when other friends came for dinner. The outside terrace is lovely to sit and read and enjoy drinks overlooking the big open square. It also overlooks the Friday Market which is the best Market we have ever been to. The basement parking proved to be a blessing as the street parking gets taken up very quickly. The elevator was particularly welcome when we returned laden with packets and parcels and our arrival and departure with the luggage too !!! The extra shower and extra toilet made sharing with another couple so much more usable and convenient - all our previous places had one bathroom and mostly the toilet was in it aswell. The friendly lady who welcomed us named Greta was a pleasure to deal with. We will use this apartment again and can recommend this apartment without hesitation. The village of Lourmarin must just be the prettiest village in the whole of France !!!
Thank you very much for the lovely review. I just am so happy when people enjoy staying at our apartment as much as we do ourselves. The village of Lourmarin is very very special and this helps make the stay there so enjoyable. The markets on Fridays are such fun and are always a highlight - we try to arrange our trips to be able to spend 2 Fridays there. It would be a pleasure to welcome you and your friends back in the future.
