Provence holiday gitè to let in Lourmarin in the Luberon mountains

If this is what you have been searching for let us tell you a little about our Provence holiday flat, something about us, Lourmarin and the Luberon mountains.

The beautiful Luberon mountains of Provence in one of France's accredited "plus beaux villages de France". Bomb down the autoroutes, let the Eurostar take the strain, or fly from Gatwick to Marseille and from there in your nippy little hire car you will reach your destination in under an hour, admiring Cézanne's Mont Sainte-Victoire and breathing in the scent of the pines en route.

Lourmarin, with its twisting little streets, mossy fountains, and cascading flowers awaits you. This is not just a picture-postcard village; here you can play tennis, swim, sip coffee in one of the four pavement cafés, or browse in the art galleries and niche boutiques. For the culture vultures there is the C15 chateau to explore, and music festivals at La Roc d'Antheron, at Aix-en-Provence, Avignon and Orange - all within easy access.

Nature lovers will revel in the abundant walks and all the treasures of the Luberon National Park with its scented countryside of juniper and wild herbs, cherry and almond orchards, vineyards and lavender fields. The Camargue and Nîmes are also within easy reach as is the Cote D'Azure for sun lovers and people watchers. There is even an active football team with state of the art pitch in the centre of the village!

For self caterers, the three mini stores and delicatessens will provide everything you need, and who will be able to resist the offerings of the boulanger / pâtissier artisanal with his home-made croissants, bread and exquisite pastries? And for the gourmet? Would two Michelin starred restaurants and a choice of 12 other bistros suffice? All within walking distance of your apartment.

The local Co-Operative offers wines for all tastes from local plonk to gold medal winners; other excellent vintages are obtainable from nearby viticulteurs. Local colour abounds with the weekly market on a Friday, providing you with opportunities to experience the splendours of the local culture and horticulture.

In the heart of this vibrant and captivating community, is the newly-built, vine clad apartment block, Le Clos de la Treille; painted in soft umber, ochre and terracotta and shaded by plane trees, it complements the medieval local architecture.


We are delighted to offer you a top-quality one bedroom first floor flat in pristine condition. The building has a lift, so it is accessible for anyone not able to manage the stairs.

Your apartment has a logia overlooking the mountains, a lounge / diner, fully fitted kitchen including automatic washing machine, bedroom with king sized double bed, and bathroom with shower.

Furnished in ultra modern style, but with pretty Provencal fabrics, this central, comfortable and convenient flat is ideal for the young executive wanting to get away from it all for a while, or the more relaxed grey power couple wanting to bask in the Mediterranean atmosphere and brush up their French.
