Ideally located in the center of the village, you will be able to enjoy everything Lourmarin has to offer. The rooms are spacious and you will find everything you need! The terrace is a key element, with an outstanding scenery to enjoy!
The house is so authentic, the rooms generous, the ceilings high, thick walls and quirky as such old houses can be.
100sqm + 10sqm terrasse
please note that the house is on several levels and half levels as is typical in the village and region.
The house is our holiday home, we put everything in there that we would need during holidays. Simply come with your luggage, you will find the rest on site!
Included are towels and bed linen - organically cleaned.
Items such as coffee, tea, soap, washing pods and so on are not provided. (To ease the arrival though, there is a bottle of water in the fridge, a laundry pod, a dishwasher pod and one roll of toilet paper in each WC)
Interakcija s gostima
We are working with a professional company that will get in touch with you prior your arrival, welcome you, show you around the house and leave you to enjoy it! Robin will organise the check out as well.
The house is on several stories, so expect there to be many stairs. Nothing unmanageable of course but worth being aware of! I had family and friends from 3 months up to 70 years old staying there without any difficulties.
There is baby and toddler stuff on site (bed, toys, ...)
As specified there is NO air conditioning, TV or wifi. It is our wish for it to be so. It is an old house with thick walls, temperature stays reasonable. There is no TV as there are books, games and many activities to be done. As for wifi... we try to have a break from our hectic careers while on holiday so no wifi in the house. If needed, there are many places in the village where there is free wifi access.
Please note that the church bell rings every hour - even at night. While surprised at first, it becomes a daily companion. No guests have ever complained but it should be mentioned.
To ease the guests' arrival are left in the house a laundry pod, a dishwasher pod, a bottle of water in the fridge and a toilet paper roll in each WC.
The house is non smoking.
Rental is from saturday to saturday (could potentially be negotiated) and the minimum stay is 6 nights.
While there are 3 chimneys, it is forbidden to use them. the rental cost does not include wood and the extra cleaning cost.
I expect guests to respect our neighbours - as anyone would do in their own home. No unreasonable noise past certain hours....
As for pets, please let us discuss that case by case.
We require to meet the guests. It is our beloved home, it means a lot to us. Additionally, it enables us to properly introduce you to the house.
We require the guests to respect the check in (from 4pm to 7pm) and check out times (from 9am to 11am). Special arrangements can be made but they need to be agreed before hand.
We require the guests to narrow down their arrival time to an one hour slot. The house manager is indeed looking after other properties.
We will always try to accommodate our guests as we all know about traffic and flight delays but we reserve the right to add an extra charge of €10 per hour after the slot has ended. A claim will be made through Airbnb, who will collect.
We require the guests to leave the house clean and in order. It is a pity to have to write that but we had some bitter experiences in the past.
A few examples: dishwasher empty, dishes washed, garbage put in the bin outside the house, furniture in its initial place,... the non respect of these rules will lead to an extra cleaning fee of €10 per hour work that will be collected by Airbnb following a claim. Pictures are now systematically taken after check out.
Hi, i am married to the best husband, have a little toddler and a baby and live in London. The first time we went together in Lourmarin, we felt so strongly about everything there that we decided to get married there the year after. One thing lead to the other and we found after years of search the perfect house for us. Lourmarin is our paradise from our hectic London life. For us it means no phone, no internet, no computer, no tv. It is all about living and enjoying the nature, the weather, the food and most importantly the people!
