Charming 15th Century Village House with patio

Overview

Property

Updated: 30-Nov-2016
House in Lourmarin, Luberon National Park, Aix-en-Provence - Situated in the Sunshine Provence

L’Oustaloun (pronounced 'loo sta loon') means 'the very little house' in Provencal, the language one would have heard on the streets of Lourmarin back in the 11th century when the watchtower, which now holds the village clock, was being built. Open the window overlooking the oldest street in Lourmarin, rue de la Juiverie. L’Oustaloun was fully renovated in 2007 and freshly furnished in a charming Provencal style, L’Oustaloun is the perfect size for a couple or single person. In the living room a small bistro-style table is perfect for morning coffee and croissants or a dinner prepared from foods purchased at the day’s market. Open the nearby window and in floats the gentle purr of the village and friendly voices of passers-by on the tiny rue de Juiverie. The fireplace which when filled with logs, throws off tremendous warmth and is an invitation to relax on the comfortable couch facing. Lourmarin is officially known as one of the most beautiful villages in France. Come and see.

About the Owner

My name is Nanou and my daughter, Tatiana will manage L'Oustaloun. She was 10 years in communication and fashion in Paris and then, she managed for a few years a guest house and cottages of charm in Burgundy in the heart of the gold coast and its prestigious wines. She discovered a passion for this occupation and beyond a true life style.

On my side, after several years in Home Fashion, we decided to join our experiences to mix both activities, renting cottages fully decorated with our Atelier's items and furnitures. That's how our project is born.

Lourmarin in Provence was just the natural choice.

Lovely little cottage in a very pretty village.

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice 10 day stay. Tatiana was lovely and very helpful.

We enjoyed evenings in the courtyard having the odd night in with local cheese and fresh crusty bread.

The cottage very clean.

Always found car parking in the village.

Location

From the Owner

As we everyday do in Lourmarin, our guests will feel and breathe "the Saint-Tropez of the sixties wind" that blows on our beautiful village. They will have the chance to spend some days as if they were out of time and space. Their senses will be blown away, enhanced by scenery, colors, flavors, food, wine, inebriating perfumes and human make their stay an unforgettable one.

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

The coastal town of Cassis is one hour away on the Côte d' Azur. Two and half hours drive to Nice along the coastal road past towns like Antibes, Cannes - wonderful breathtaking experience. Cassis is a mini St. Tropez.

Travel:

To get to Lourmarin if you come from overseas, the best is to fly direct to Paris Charles de Gaulle airport and take the high speed train called TGV to either Aix-en-Provence TGV station or Avignon TGV station where you can rent a car and drive on lovely back roads. If you live in Europe, is to fly into the Marseille airport or Avignon and rent a car. Both are 1 h from Lourmarin.

Further Details:

A day of hiking in Buoux with a stop at Auberge des Seigneurs for lunch. Theatre Antique in Orange - incredible. Pont de Gard - pictures do not do it justice. At day of hiking in Buoux with a stop at Auberge des Seigneurs for lunch. Spending time in the village of Lourmarin where there are many small excellent restaurants and cafes, pastry and bakery shops, a beautiful castle, the tomb of Albert Camus, and lots of art galleries. Peter Mayle has chosen to live there—so read some of his books before going! Visiting the neighboring villages in and around the Luberon: Bonnieux, Lacoste, Buoux, Roussillon, and Gordes. Visiting the Luberon National Park itself where the mountains are covered with forests and the plains are filled with vineyards, olive trees, and fields of lavender (which is a tremendous color and fabulous aroma). Going to all the outdoor markets, especially the ones in Lourmarin, Aix, and Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, where there is also a famous antique market every Sunday. Visiting Avignon with its ramparts, Palace of the Popes, and Pont d’Avignon. Visiting Arles where van Gogh lived and painted. Visiting Cassis and putting your toe in the Mediterranean Sea. Seeing the Pont du Gard. Visiting Aix-en-Provence where Cezanne lived and painted. Just enjoy all the exceptional wine.

Facilities

From the Owner

My property is at the gateway to the Luberon Nat. Park central to all the old century hilltop villages and within close proximity to Avignon, Aix en Provence and the Côte d'Azur. The Verdon Gorges are close at hand which are spectacular with so much more. A true recommendation is that my guests keep returning and that in itself speaks volumes.
