Anchored to its past as an elegant Provencal farmhouse in the Luberon, Les Olivettes includes four (4) spacious rental apartments. This property is private yet only a 4-minute walk from the centre of Lourmarin, a lively village with cafés, galleries, and a notable market on Friday mornings. The apartments have all the necessary amenities for a self-catered holiday base for two (2) guests.

The Apartments:

Les Olivettes is a Provencal paradise in Lourmarin, and the suites are decorated in traditional Provencal style with modern touches. Le Pastis and Le Voltaire have been fully renovated this spring, and all four apartments have the necessary amenities for a self-catered holiday base.

Accommodating two (2) guests, the four (4) self-catered apartments have terraces, large living/dining rooms, and well-equipped kitchens. The kitchenettes include Nespresso coffee machines, fruit juicers, toasters, kettles, ovens/microwaves, and refrigerators with small freezer compartments. In addition, each apartment has a colour TV, and Les Olivettes has fibre optic cable and free WiFi.

Decorated in shades of cream, Le Pastis is one of the apartments at Les Olivettes on the ground floor. The air-conditioned apartment has a well-equipped kitchenette, a bathroom with a walk-in shower and a separate toilet, and a living and bedroom area with a queen-size bed (1.60×2.00m). The private terrace with a magnificent view of Lourmarin and its castle is ideal for breakfast or maybe a glass of Pastis.

Le Voltaire is up one level from Le Pastis. This apartment has a king-size bed (1.80 x 2.00) that can convert into two (2) single beds. The bathroom has a large shower stall. Additional space outside the suite on a private mezzanine gives onto a furnished south-facing balcony.

Le Genêt is French for the Spanish broom, a flowering bush. The apartment, decorated in Provencal ocres, has a king-size bed (1.80 x 2.00) that can be made as one or two single beds. In addition, there are magnificent views of the Château de Lourmarin and beyond. The bathroom has an oversized shower stall.

Le Zidane, named after a local French football hero, is decorated in warm cream tones. The apartment has a small double bedroom (1.40m x 2.00m) and a good-sized bathroom with a shower. Le Zidane has a kitchen and dining area with views of the village, the pool and the garden. There is a covered terrace to take advantage of the southern climate.

The Property:

Mature olive trees line the entry to Les Olivettes – a classic welcome to Provence. The property includes several seating areas for enjoying the Mediterranean garden with lavender, roses, jasmine, and other native plants. During the hotter months, the large heated swimming pool surrounded by sunbeds is a tempting way to spend part of the day.

The pool house has a summer kitchen with two BBQs, and it’s a terrific spot for casual al fresco dining. In addition, there is a pétanque pitch, table football, mini billiard, a ping pong table, and badminton sets for a little friendly sporting competition.

The main building comprises a spacious communal lounge with breathtaking views of Lourmarin village and the Chateau of Lourmarin and a fully equipped kitchen with views of the garden and pool.

What their guests say:

Many things will catch your eyes, but only a few will catch your heart… pursue those.” We will definitely come back. Thank you for an amazing and so charming Provence Experience. Everything was there to enjoy. ~ Teresa, Muriel, Fritz and Richard.

Thank you so much, Christel, for an amazing week in Lourmarin. We were so grateful to have spent some time in this part of the world, and you certainly made us feel at home – if only it was actually our home! Congratulations as well on 13 years here and a successful fete. Wishing you all the best and looking forward to visiting again in the near future. ~ Rachel, Sam and Wiggle

This is our third stay at Les Olivettes, and once again, we have enjoyed every moment here. We enjoyed the improvements to the home and garden, and Christel has been an excellent host. We look forward to returning. ~ Dimi and Paul

Christel, what can I say? Such lovely company in the most beautiful and comfortable accommodation. Thank you so much for your generous hospitality. ~ Wendy

Even as a professional copywriter, it is hard to put our experience and feelings about this place into words. Our stay at Les Olivettes and the beautiful village of Lourmarin was everything we expected and then some more. We loved every second of our week here, and Christel has been the perfect hostess. Next time – and we hope there’ll be one – we will definitely stay longer. Thank you for everything. ~ Anni, Orkun and Puck.

LLiebe Christel, Immer wenn ich in Les Olivettes bin, fühle ich much wie einst zu Hause und geborgen. Dass mag teilweise daran liegen, dass es hier um einen Platz mit Geschichten handelt, die ich sehr liebe. Ausserdem liegt es aber an dir, liebe Christel. Deinen Herzlichkeit, Toleranz und Freundschaft. Bis zum nächsten Mal, habe tausende Dank und beste Wünsche, das gilt auch für Charly. ~ Deine Karin.

Quelle joli sejour Nous avons passé une fois de plus aux Olivettes! Toujours trop court mais toujours aussi ressourçant! Merci Christel pour votre accueil, gentilles et présence et san aucun doute vous apportez à ce lieu la vie, la chaleur qui nous donne inévitablement le désir de revenir. A bientôt ! Donc. ~ Nathalie et Nicolas.
