Lourmarin Loft, Lourmarin, Provence

Loft-style apartment with garden in Lourmarin

 

The sitting room opening out to the garden, and the view of the castle of Lourmarin.

A loft-style apartment for 2-4 people opposite the Renaissance chateau of Lourmarin, just 2 minutes walk into all the wonderful amenities of the village - restaurants, bars, boutiques, market - Lourmarin has it all. The apartment is designed to sleep 1 couple with up to 2 children. It has a little garden with castle view and off-street parking: both are a great bonus for a village apartment.

 

The sitting room opens to the garden, and leads through to the second room.

There are two large rooms and with the high ceilings the feel is of an artist's studio space. Contemporary art hangs on the walls, and the floors are polished cement in one room and terra cotta tiles in the other. The ambience is zen and inspiring. The entrance is a wall of windows, opening out to the gravelled garden. The building has thick stone walls, and this keeps the apartment cool in the middle of summer.

 

Two single beds with the sitting room beyond.

In the first room is the sitting space and two single beds (above). Through the doorway the second room has the master bed, dining table, kitchen and bathroom. The apartment has WiFi internet but no TV.

 

Dining table and kitchen.

The kitchen is small but has what you need: 2-ring stove, microwave, fridge-freezer, washing machine, Nespresso, cafetiere, kettle.

 

The double bed and writing desk are in the same space as the dining table, kitchen, and through to bathroom.

With this set-up, while it is possible to sleep 4 adults, it is ideally suited to a couple in the double bed, and up to 2 children in the single beds. The master bed is a double and at the foot of the bed is a writing desk and closet. The single beds are separated from the sitting room by a screen. The bathroom has shower, basin and WC.

 

 

The outside space is a gravelled patio with table and chairs, 2 deckchairs and a barbecue, and a private parking spot alongside. The castle of Lourmarin is opposite, with a picturesque olive grove in between. It is an idyllic, Provencal, rural setting and yet in the village of Lourmarin.

 

The apartment has a verdant little garden, with parking alongside, and a great view of Lourmarin castle.

The setting is perfect, in a very quiet cul-de-sac, a 2-minute stroll into the centre of Lourmarin, one of the most sought-after villages in Provence.



The Location

 

Lourmarin with its Renaissance chateau and striking outline.

The apartment has an amazing location, on the edge of the beautiful village of Lourmarin, so it takes 2 minutes to walk into the centre with its many restaurants, cafes spilling onto the street, and boutiques. Lourmarin is one of the star villages of the Luberon, and is alive year-round.

Lourmarin is very well situated for both the north and south Luberons. To the north you are 20-30 minutes from other celebrated hill-top villages of the Luberon, like Gordes, Roussillon, Lacoste, Menerbes, Goult, Oppede le vieux, etc. As well as towns like the antiques mecca of Isle sur la Sorgue, and Fontaine de Vaucluse, where the Sorgue river emerges fully formed from deep underground.

And to the south are more idyllic Luberon villages - Cucuron, Cadenet, Ansouis, etc. - less visited but equally picturesque. Market day in Lourmarin is Friday mornings and there are other markets every day of the week in neighbouring villages.

Within 45-90 minutes are the splendid Provence cities of Aix-en-Provence, Avignon, Arles, St Remy, Tarascon, Orange, Nimes, as well as the Camargue, Marseille, and the Rhone wine trail. The French Riviera is 2 hours away and you can be swimming in the sea in less than 90 minutes.

Scenes from the centre of Lourmarin, where cafes and restaurants abound, and market day is Friday.

Romantic escape

We had a great stay in the loft. At the foot of the castle, a few minutes walk from the historic centre of Lourmarin, the loft is ideally located. Tastefully decorated, very clean and spacious. Perfect for a romantic getaway!

A little slice of paradise!

We had the most magnificent stay in the Lourmarin Loft. The loft was just as lovely as described and communication with the owner was excellent, right from the initial booking. The village is just magnificent, so many shops, cafes and streets to explore. The markets were wonderful and everything you could need is just a few minutes walk. We toured the Chateau, which was wonderful and spent many hours just wandering and enjoying village life. I would highly recommend staying in Lourmarin and saying in the beautiful Loft, it is a trip my family and I loved and will never forget. Andrea
