About Walter Geiser
My husband and I live in Anguilla, British West Indies most of the year. We spend several months in the summer on Cape Cod, MA. Ever since we stumbled on the market in Lourmarin in 2000, we have returned to Lourmarin annually. It is a very special town and the area is beautiful. We bought Le Murier in 2012 and have taken the year to update and renovate the spacious villa. It is a quiet retreat in the country but within walking distance to town. After renting in other areas in Provence, we finally settled on Lourmarin because of its central location for day trips, the cultural activities at the Château and for the charming boutiques and casual cafes and restaurants which line the streets with temptations.

Love Villa Murier
If you are thinking of staying at Villa Murier, do not hesitate. If my family and I ever have the opportunity to visit Lourmarin again we would all choose to stay here. This house is well maintained with all the comforts of home. 4 of the 5 bedrooms have its own bathroom. The kitchen is well equipped. We were 6 adults and 1 infant.
We used the outdoor space most of the time since the weather was magnificent. Although there is no air conditioning, it was never a problem since the nights were so cool and you could sleep comfortably with the windows open.
It is within walking distance to the quaint village of Lourmarin.
Our stay at this home helped make our vacation a memorable one. I have stayed in a handful of homes over the years and this is truly a gem, like none other.Thank you for sharing your home.
Our group of three couples had a wonderful stay in this truly lovely house. It is set in a very peaceful location on the outskirts of Lourmarin (a 15 minute walk away along a little track).
The garden is very private, as it is screened around its perimeter with high hedges. There is plentiful outdoor furniture for dining, lounging by the pool side or sitting to read under one of the mature trees. There is also a bocci court available on one side of the house.
The house is generously proportioned, very well maintained and is beautifully presented and furnished. The beds were extremely comfortable, (so much so that we all tended to linger in bed a little too long in the morning).
Lourmarin is a dynamic little village offering a good selection of shops, restaurants and a colourful Friday market.
We also found this property to be very well located for exploring the countless other wonderful attractions on offer in Provence.
The weather was somewhat inclement during our week’s stay, but the property was just so lovely it didn’t matter! It really provided us with that wonderful Provencal atmosphere.
We would also like to acknowledge Walter (the property manager); who provided us with a very warm welcome on our arrival. He provided valuable advice re local attractions, and was responsive to any enquiries we had during our stay.
We treasured our stay at Villa Murier, and would all love to return one day! We would unreservedly recommend it!
