Newly renovated maison in historic Lourmarin
This family house is located in the village of Lourmarin, officially one of “the most beautiful villages of France”. Stepping out of the front door, you will discover narrow streets, typical Provencal architectures, monuments and all the lively social places that give the village its soul.
Accessed from a central but quiet street, La Maison du Village will charm you from the minute you step inside the front door. It is a property of contrasts: while it’s close to entertainment, it’s also away from the crowds. It’s bathed in sun but with plenty of shade. Authentically Provencal but with modern conveniences. Enjoy central social spaces and other more intimate areas. Open-plan living combines with security, the property is enclosed but not overlooked.
From the street to the gardens, you will feel like you’ve stepped into another world. On the ground floor of La Maison du Village, the owners have designed the large terrace at the heart of the property. With a marvellous view overlooking the swimming pool and gardens below, it is this link between the inside and the outside which makes for a convivial atmosphere.

Signed “Jacques Brens”, you benefit from the quality of finish and the fineness of the pool’s marble powder-coating. There is also a large submerged bench facing the sun, with a whirlpool system.
