Locale

Listed as "one of the most beautiful villages in France", Lourmarin nestles in the middle of vinyards, olive groves and almond trees.

A very animated village in the summer due to its numerous cafe terraces, restaurants and boutiques, Lourmarin attracts many visitors.

There is a 15th and 16thc, castle that has peculiar stairs to see and magnificent apartments to admire (only the Renaissance part of the castle is open to the public).

In the village you will notice the typical Mediterranean architecture in its winding narrow streets, lovely old restored houses, and well shaded public squares where you can immerse youself in the gentil Provençal ambience.

The inhabitants will want to remind you that Albert Camus, winner of the Nobel Literature Prize, lived and wrote here.

In fact he was buried in the Lourmarin cemetary.

In such esthetic surroundings and so lively an atmosphere, it is really the place to be in the Luberon in the summer months.

What to see:

"Boite a Sel" belfry. Romanesque church St. Andre.

Listed temple. Villa Medicis de Provence Castle (16thc,).

Provençal bastides (16th, 18thc.).

Activities:

Friday morning market. Hiking.

Horseback riding. Mountain biking.

Swimming pool. Tennis. Archery.

Minigolf. Fishing in the Durance (4km.).

Summer events: Theater, concerts, conferences, exhibitions, local fairs.

Getting here:
The easiest way to get to Inland Provence from the US is to fly to Marseilles International Airport (MRS). If you would like to see Paris, fly to Charles de Gaulle Airport then connect directly to the TGV(high speed train) from CDG TGV2 to Avignon TGV(3 hours direct) and rent a car. You would plan to see Paris on the way back, taking the TGV from Avignon TGV to Gare de Lyon, getting a cab to your hotel in the city.
