 Un Jardin Secret

… A magical, romantic secluded hideaway …

This little "cabanon" cottage – with its comfortable and authentic Provençal decor and idyllic rural setting among fig, cherry and olive trees and an abundance of wild flowers – will simply steal your heart. 


If you love nature, peace and quiet, and country-style authenticity, then this truly privileged place is for you. 

Just a 10-minute walk to the bustling village of Lourmarin and its iconic chateau, this gorgeous little country cottage is surrounded by fields in the heart of the Luberon Regional Park on 4,200m2 of land planted with fig, cherry and olive trees. Breathe in the rarefied air of Provence, relax and recharge in isolation while being just a few minutes from the restaurants, shops and famous Friday market in Lourmarin, officially one of the Most Beautiful Villages in France.

It offers all the comforts you may need, including a fitted kitchenette with dining table, coffee machine, stovetop, oven, electric kettle and a washing machine. In the main room there is a small fireplace. The bedroom has a comfortable 160x200 bed boasting linen covers, and there is a shower room.

There is also a mezzanine loft (ceiling height of 1.6m) with views of the garden that makes for a good reading nook or the perfect sleeping area for a child, although it is accessed via spiral staircase so may need a little bit of supervision. 

Outside there is a portable barbeque and plenty of garden furniture, including sun loungers and dining table and chairs. When you're in this "secret garden" its silence is in huge contrast with the busy heart of the village.

By car, it's 3 minutes from the Chateau de Lourmarin along a small road, and then 500m of rougher path in "La basse prairie". Note that if your car has a particularly low chassis, the last bit of road must be used with caution. There is free private parking available on-site.

You can play tennis at the property, and guests can enjoy a variety of other popular activities in the surrounding area, such as swimming, cycling and hiking.

Lourmarin is 13km from Apt, 45km from Les Baux-de-Provence, 42km from Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, and 49km from Avignon. It is 40 minutes to Aix en Provence and the TGV train station, and about an hour to Marseille airport.

“Un séjour de rêve”
 - Nous avons passé 4 jours idylliques, le cabanon offre tous les charmes de la Provence au milieu des champs et néanmoins très proche du village. Parfait pour rayonner dans le Lubéron. Un jardin secret est aussi la promesse d'une décoration authentique et pensée dans les moindres détails. Le confort est aussi privilégié avec une litterie exceptionnelle !!!
Un nid où il fait bon poser l'amour...
Pour conclure un accueil chaleureux et à l'écoute, bref une adresse à partager.

“Idyllisches Ferienhäuschen in den Wiesen von Lourmarin”
 - Wir haben wunderbare Tage im romantisch in den Wiesen von Lourmarin gelegenen Ferienhäuschen verbracht. Die Einrichtung ist besonders gelungen rustikal und dennoch sehr provencalisch. Es gibt einen Wohnbereich mit offener Küche, ein Schlafzimmer und ein kleines Bad, sowie auf der Empore eine weitere Schlafmöglichkeit. Das Haus ist sehr tierfreundlich mit einem großem Terrain ringsherum. Ein Olivenhain und und Kirschbäume machen das Relaxen im Garten perfekt. Barbeque steht zur Verfügung und in den Ort sind es nur wenige Minuten.
 Die Vermieter sind besonders charmant. Ein rundherum gelungener Aufenthalt - wir kommen bestimmt wieder.

To start, Christine is an amazing host. She smoked with a big smile, fresh fruit and a bottle of pink. Lourmarin is a 10-minute walk to town, 2-minute drive away. The cottage itself is extremely charming. The space, while small, is definitely more spacious than what is depicted in the photos. There is even a small loft for a good book or a siesta. I would definitely recommend staying here if you're looking for a bit of rustic charm on your holidays - just be sure to rent a car!

Perfect getaway in Provence - a lovely secluded Provencal cabin nestled in the Luberon countryside, yet just within walking distance from Lourmarin. The delightful host Christine went out of her way to make our stay comfortable. Perfect for a romantic getaway.
