Romantic hideaway in the heart of Lourmarin

If you like originality and modern comfort amid an 18th century village house set in a unique village like Lourmarin, then choose La Maison des Oiseaux. Its small roof terrace overlooking the cheerful shops and bars below is the perfect place to enjoy a morning coffee and croissant, or an evening tipple. It might even be where you feel inspired to sit and write a novel about life in Provence …

This little village house, which is set over three levels, is right in the centre of Lourmarin, on rue du Temple with its boutiques and art galleries. It’s ideal for a couple, but can sleep up to four people.

Plenty of features

On the first floor of La Maison des Oiseaux is the large bedroom, which is airy and light, and has a king-sized bed set on 18th century floor tiles. There is a functional bathroom that features natural stone, a walk-in shower and a basin, and is equipped with hair dryer and washing machine. Towels are provided. There is a separate toilet.

On the second floor is the open-plan living area, with its cozy, colourful, modern kitchen, very well equipped for a top chef. Be inspired by the joy of discovering our wonderful local rosé wines and nibble tapenade on the counter. There is also a separate washroom on this floor.

Hidden gem

On the top floor of La Maison des Oiseaux is where you’ll find the “nest” (le nid in French). This cosy corner is perfect for watching TV or reading, or just to have a nap on the colourful and comfortable futon sofa. Push open the glass door to sit on the roof terrace and of course enjoy your morning expresso or evening pastis outside in the sunshine.

The change-over day for this property is Friday in high season, when bookings will be taken for a week (7 nights) at a time. Between mid-September and mid-June we will also accept bookings of 4-6 nights for this property; a surcharge of €50 will apply.

    Wonderful modern and arty flat

    I very much enjoyed my stay in this beautiful flat. At first you think it is going to be a small place but with its three levels and lovely balcony right at the top overlooking the rooftops you soon realise you have more space than you need. The bathroom was a delight with all the modern fittings, in fact the whole flat has been renovated and has a wonderful modern and arty feel to the place. As much as i enjoyed the sites and sound of Lourmarin it was always a joy to come back to this perfect flat. Thanks again Walter for taking such good care of me.

    Plenty of space

    It’s really rare, that I write comments at all! But in this case I have to tell something about this nice flat, which feels more as a house. I enjoyed my stay in this beautiful house so much and I will return very soon. The house offers plenty of space and it is optimally equipped. I love the modern and luminous design, the cosy private terasse on top and for me, as a person, who loves to cook as well as enjoy good wines is really a plus the equipment in the kitchen, which has a very good standard. And if you go out of the flat or house, you can feel to live in clover. And of course, Walter is a real connoisseur de la region and fortunately the greatest connoisseur of the restaurants in region. So, I have to say many thanks to Walter and I’ll be back very soon.

    Superbe appartement

    Superbe appartement, confortable, bien équipé, avec une agréable terasse ensoleillée. La rue est très sympa, quasiment piétonne et pleine de jolies petites boutiques. Le propriétaire a été très sympathique et nous a fourni pleins de choses que nous n’avions pas pour notre bébé. Nous avons passé une excellente semaine !

    Hope to return

    We stayed here for a week (May 14-May 21, 2016) and really enjoyed the home. It is in the village; close to restaurants and shops. The home is very nicely furnished, the kitchen is well equipped and the roof top terrace is lovely. Walter was exceptionally helpful and answered many questions about the area and restaurants. We recommend this rental and hope to return in the future.

    A great memory!

    This apartment is a great place for anyone who likes to stay in Provence. Thanks to superb management of Walter who made us feel home at first moment. Walter was so responsible that guests could not possibly ask more! Walter’s hospitality and this apartment all made our stay in Provence a great memory!

    We have no hesitation in recommending

    We stayed in this beautiful apartment for three weeks in September and enjoyed every minute of it. We used Lourmarin as a base to explore the towns of Provence and feel that we made the right choice. As other guests have said, Walter was the perfect host, lending us walking maps and books on the area. We took his recommendations on a number of restaurants in the area and certainly were not disappointed. We have no hesitation in recommending this apartment or “Rent our home in Provence”.

    A wonderful and unique house

    A wonderful and unique house in the center of Lourmarin. My wife and I loved the kitchen, the floors, the terrace, location etc of your wonderful home … really a great and unique place ! Also, parking was easy. In town, Cafe Gaby is a great place for an omelette for lunch, I had a wonderful dinner at Cafe l’Ormeau which my wife wishes she’d also ordered (the thin cut of steak with potatoes au gratin as a side), La Calade is terrific for a quiche with salad for lunch, and drinks at Maison Cafe are special … all a four minute walk or less from your home !!
