Our house is a traditional style ‘maison de village’ over three floors. We had it refurbished to update the facilities but maintaining many period features and it is tastefully and comfortably furnished for a relaxing break.
It is in the heart of the village with the shops, restaurants and leisure activities within easy walking distance and yet it is a very peaceful place for those who just wish to chill on the terrace and cook in the well equipped kitchen.
I live in Scotland with my husband and our two young children. I studied French at uni and fell in love with France as a student.

Our property search took us to many lovely places but Lourmarin took our breath away. It is stunning to look at if you just want to while the day away but there's always lots going on. It's easy to reach and a great base for day trips.
Our property is in the middle of the village so we can walk to the bakers or the market or to take the kids to the park. It is away from the main drag so it is still nice and quiet. You can really get a taste of what it is like to live in a Provencal village - sitting on our terrace watching the world go by.
"We found the accommodation to be everything we hoped it would be and more, and would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone" Neil Boys, New Zealand
"Thank you for everything. Your house is so lovely and comfortable!...we loved all of it. Thanks to your house, our holiday in Lourmarin has been really nice, with many trips around the region but also with some quiet days, during which we cooked some special dishes and read.
We hope that we'll come back to Lourmarin in the future ... " Luigia Camapagna, Italy
"Just writing to say "thank you" for letting us stay at your lovely French home.
We had the most fabulous time, and your place felt like "home" for us. Hope to be back someday!" - Chrissy Sun, New Zealand
We had a wonderful stay at this lovely townhouse. It was so nice being able to walk out the door and enjoy all the restaurants, shops, and the Friday market in the beautiful village of Lourmarin. Fiona was excellent to work with on the booking and Greta was so nice in showing us into the place. By the way, Greta spoke very good English so there was no language barrier. I worried that there weren't any bathroom pictures and that it wouldn't be nice, but it was very nice. The modern toilet was in it's own room, and the shower and vanity/sink combo were in a room next to the toilet room. The bathroom was clean and modern and the shower had a rain shower head and a handheld shower head. I highly recommend this home and I highly recommend staying in the village.
