Maison de Savornin
… Stunning villa-like house in the heart of Lourmarin …
With a large pool set in a private garden, and air-conditioning inside, this is arguably one of the best village houses to rent in Lourmarin.
We are thrilled to offer this charming old village house, which is surprisingly spacious and can accommodate eight people comfortably. It is set on a quiet road on the outer edge of the village, with free public parking close by. Step out the front door into the narrow cobbled streets of Lourmarin with its excellent restaurants, cafes and boutique shops, as well as the outstanding market on Fridays.
The property has been respectfully restored to retain its original character, but has been finished to a high standard with contemporary comforts like wi-fi throughout (including in the garden!), air conditioning, high-quality beds and luxury bathrooms.
The accommodation is set over three floors, with most of the rooms looking out over the pool and garden. The air-conditioned ground floor is all open-plan and perfect for entertaining and socialising. As you enter the house, you’ll find a modern kitchen equipped with oven, four-ring cooker, dishwasher and fridge-freezer.
From the kitchen this large space extends to the dining area with an eight-seater table alongside a huge picture window that you will want throw open on Summer evenings. For the cooler months, there is a cosy sitting room through an arch, with comfy sofas and a working stone fireplace, or curl up in the small reading nook at the back of the house. Also on the ground floor is a guest WC.
On the next level up, you will find the TV lounge with an L-shaped sofa and smart TV/DVD with Orange TV and Netflix.
Keep going up the curved stone staircase to find the four double bedrooms and two bathrooms, set over two split-level floors. The house sleeps eight adults, and up to 10 if there are young children.
The air-conditioned master bedroom is on the middle floor, with a 1.8m-wide (6ft) bed. A waist-high wall separates the sleeping area from its adjoining bathroom, which has a walk-in shower, twin basins and WC.
Also on the middle floor is the second bedroom, which has a 1.4m-wide (4.6ft) double bed and gorgeous outlook onto the surrounding countryside. The large family bathroom is a half-level up, and features a luxurious bath, walk-in shower, double basins, and separate WC.
The third bedroom can be configured as two singles or the beds can be connected together to form a 1.8m-wide (6ft) double bed. On the top level of the house is a large air-conditioned bedroom with a 1.8m-wide (6ft) double bed. There is also a mezzanine sleeping area here, which has a long mattress and a pillow at each end, giving you the option of accommodating two young children sleeping head-to-toe. This area is accessed via three small steps and has a protective rail.
Heading outside, the pool measures 8.5m x 4.5m (28 x 15ft), and is 1.7m deep, with steps at one end. There is a small area of lawn around the pool, and sunloungers are provided if you want to brave the summer sun. Alternatively, relax under the UVA/B-protected shade of the large pergola that accommodates an outside dining table.
Use the Weber for lovely late evening barbecues and dine al fresco under the stars. Under the main living area of the house there is a summer kitchen with fridge, sink and dishwasher, as well as a WC and clothes washing machine. There is also an outside shower.
Finally, there is a large, secure store-room with a separate entrance off the street, which is perfect for bicycles and prams.
