Why Clotilde Crozier chose Lauris

We have a part of our family whose origins are in the South of France. We love picturesque villages but it also needs to be lively whatever the season. We are Lucky to be only 5 minutes away by car from the most picturesque village of the South Luberon, and Lauris has a lovely old hidden village, has a weekly market, 2 butchers, 2 bakers.....

This area is magical

Special home and really beautiful

The home is as beautiful as the pictures. The owner was very nice and helpful. We loved being able to walk to the village of Lauris and being so close to Lourmarin. The house was well equipped and very clean. The property is special.

We had a privilege of staying in this beautiful place recently and absolutely fell in love with it. The garden is truly breathtaking and the house is very elegant yet cozy and comfortable. Relaxing in its magical garden; smelling the lavenders; looking at the beautiful and colorful flowers; manicured lawn and tall trees; listening to birds and swimming in the pool make this place a heavenly vacation destination. Although it’s located in a charming village and close to many more beautiful ones to explore; we felt like enjoying the house and its garden totally made our vacation, “paradise“!
