The Luberon is a country full of beauty and history. The village of Lourmarin is one of its main entrances where travelers stopped and stayed during the 12th century. It is good to keep this tradition today, even though we get the risk to never come back, because this place, listed as one of the most beautiful village of France, seems to come from a picture.
The story of this place starts during the Antiquity and has cross the ages to give us today one of this typical image of Provence that Peter Mayle loved so much; across the streets it looks like time stopped, during the summer people are lazy on the terrace of the cafes, enjoying the eternal blue sky.
The castle adds a unique charm thanks to the Renaissance estheticism. Today, according to the local superstitionn, this castle has magic powers... but to believe or not to believe, everybody agrees with this fact: this castle has one of the best panorama from where you will get to see the village with its fields of olive trees, its cypress and vineyards. For each of us, Lourmarin may introduce or conclude many things about the symbolic image of Provence.
