Overview

About the property

Comfortable, charming, central apartment that will capture your heart

In the very heart of charming Lourmarin, off a narrow lane just a few doors from the town’s inner social hub, lies Le Nid d’Hirondelles. It’s perfect for anyone who wants a hideaway amidst the bustle of a beautiful and lively tourist town, with its many art galleries, boutique shops and 13 restaurants.

As its name suggests, this “nest of swallows” is nestled at the very top of a 16th century structure that still has many original features. It’s a small but cleverly appointed and comfortable apartment that has been thoughtfully renovated and completely updated. It has an open-concept kitchen/living area that opens onto a terrace which has a commanding 180º view of the rooftops of Lourmarin, with the Luberon mountains in the distance. You’ll also have a first-hand view out onto some of the stalls that are set up for the Friday morning market – great for people-watching!

The bedroom is bright and spacious and features a queen-size bed. The bathroom has a beton ciré Italian shower and a corner cupboard contains a small washing machine. Other amenities include a hair dryer, dishwasher, a wall-mounted air-conditioning unit, iron, wi-fi, iPod dock, television, telephone, small Weber barbecue, and an umbrella and sun lounger. Free parking is conveniently located in a very nearby municipal lot, just a minute’s walk up from the apartment.

About Geiser Walter

Denise and Keith Wool, from Cape Town South Africa. As frequent visitors to the South of France, we had been searching for a small "getaway" where we could relax and I could fulfil my dream of painting the days away. We were always drawn back to the magic of this small village called Lourmarin, and eventually after "blood, sweat and tears", Le Nid d'Hirondelles was born. For us the absolute joy of this apartment is the open terrace, where we spend so much time relaxing and preparing our own special provencal meals. It brings so much immense pleasure each day as we gaze out over the rooftops of the village.

Beautiful apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was really centrally located, beautifully furnished and luxurious. Walter met us with the keys, and even though we arrived much later than planned, he was very welcoming and helpful. The apartment is at the top of a really old building which is very well kept. The apartment has lovely decor everything needed for a very comfortable stay. Lourmarin is a fantastic place and a great base to explore the rest of the Luberon.

Très Bien

  • 5 of 5

Appartement très bien situé, en plein coeur du village, parking public gratuit disponible même en pleine saison à 100m.

Aménagement de l'appartement avec gout et fonctionnel, il ne manque rien (clim, terrasse, barbecue) et tout est neuf.

Propriétaire accueillant et sympathique.

Rien à dire hormis l'accès au 3ème étage sans ascenseur un peu sportif pour les valises et non adapté aux personnes handicapées.

A recommander pour un séjour dans le lubéron.
