Cocteau - Garden

Garden

When you stay on this property you follow in the footsteps of some notable figures from history - Albert Camus, Winston Churchill, Jean Cocteau for example - as this was the home of a well-known French writer. The sense of being in nature but 3 minutes' walk from Lourmarin has not changed since their time.

 

The cottage is one of three 1-bedroom rental units for couples only on a wonderful 6-hectare (14-acre) estate next to Lourmarin castle. Each has its own private patio with outdoor dining and sunloungers.

The cottage is to the front of the building with the red sunloungers. Table and chairs and sunloungers at front of cottage.

The pool is shared and is circular with a diameter of 8 metres. It is open from June to September.

The grounds of the property are a distillation of the Provence countryside, with a vineyard, olive groves, pine woods, cypress alley, lavender and fruit trees. The grounds are so expansive that you can take a walk or jog without leaving the property.

Poppy meadow and olive grove on the estate. The building sits in the middle of the 14 acres, with Lourmarin beyond.

This is ideal for a couple who want a very calm countryside setting, walkable into one of the best villages in Provence.
