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.
