As you enter Lourmarin, your muscles ease and your mind starts wandering. The plane trees make an arch over the avenue as you walk to the heart of the village. Shaded streets and fountains are welcome when the heat reaches its peak during summer time. Life is peaceful in the narrow Provençal streets. People take the time to live, to talk and to relax. Nested in vineyards and olive trees fields, Lourmarin is named one of the most beautiful villages in France, and is certainly a must see during your visit in the Luberon area. It is a village of artists. As you stroll in the tiny paved streets, among ancient houses, you will notice the many artists’ boutiques. Lourmarin is a haven for painters, sculptors, fashion designers and writers. No wonder it attracted novelist Henri Bosco and Nobel prize writer and philosopher Albert Camus. The quietness, the amber light splashing sunflowers fields, the elegant castle and church make the perfect ground for fertile creative minds. Let go of your stress as you sit back at a terrace and relax. Have a drink an start dreaming of your entrapment in this beautiful place.
