Extremely private, the house has no immediate neighbors. The gardens create an oasis of green surrounding the house where you'll find numerous terraces to escape for shaded relaxation.
Inside, all bedrooms are air-conditioned and the entire house has an underfloor cooling system as well. The top floor Master bedroom boasts a private terrace with perhaps the best view in the house, while three bedrooms on second level also offer lovely terraces with views. The kitchen is well equipped with two ovens, two dishwashers, large fridge, freezer and microwave. The main living room and secondary television nook each offer great space to unwind after a day of touring.
There are ample dining spaces both indoors and out - providing beautiful ambiances to enjoy the scenic views and long meals together. The large swimming pool is surrounded by sun loungers, as well as a shaded deck with comfortable seating for those wishing to escape the heat. An additional sunbathing deck above the pool area includes a double sunbed.

The whole booking process was easy and very transparent, no hassles there. The house was exactly as we expected, if anything it exceeded expectations.
Areas for improvement:
Taxis and babysitters were not simple, I guess this could be a product of the location. If it can be improved then great, of not a realistic preview of this sort of thing would make planning for families a whole lot easier.
Towards the end of the week the garden was a bit overgrown and the pool needed filling. Minor stuff, but the difference between excellent and perfect.
I would highly recommend Le Mas de la Pinede, Only Provence and Chef Damien.

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.

"Boite a Sel" belfry. Romanesque church St. Andre.
Listed temple. Villa Medicis de Provence Castle (16thc,).
Provençal bastides (16th, 18thc.).

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.
