Pin this Villa
This newly renovated 4000 square foot property is situated at the foot of the Luberon mountains with stunning views across the countryside. The property lies in the middle of 10 acres of land adorned with a mix of fruit orchards, olives and barley, just 10-minutes from Lourmarin by foot.

The house is the east wing of a substantial Provencal farmhouse and has a private entrance, landscaped gardens and heated swimming pool. A covered terrace with comfortable cushioned seating, sun loungers and a separate outside dining terrace invite you to relax or enjoy meals together.

If you are feeling energetic, there is a Concept 2 rowing machine, weights and bicycles available. The ground floor consists of an open plan room with French windows opening onto a stone terrace. There is a well-equipped kitchen, dining table for 8 and sitting area with television. A double room with bathroom leads from a generously proportioned corridor. This room has a private circular mosaic terrace. The separate laundry room has a washing machine, dryer, iron and ironing board.

The First floor consists of 2 large double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, and finally a twin bed also with en-suite bathroom.

There is Wifi throughout the property.

The stunning and ancient village of Lourmarin is an easy 10-minute stroll away - close enough to hear the charming church bells which ring on the hour. Visitors love to linger at one of the many cafes or fetch a freshly baked croissant and bread each morning. Lourmarin is also a magnet for artists, writers and musicians. Indeed, Albert Camus made it his home. There are many art galleries and boutiques and throughout the summer, the ancient chateau hosts numerous concerts. The lively Friday market is simply joyful and when you tire of the shopping you can slip off to a café to sip a glass of rosé while listening to a gypsy jazz band on the market square.

Mas De l'Ecrivan was excellent and the owner looked after us very well. The house is stunning as is the location. 5 stars. This was our second time with Only Provence and we are very happy with the service. Chef Yvan was a highlight of our visit.

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.
