“Sun-drenched, well appointed home away from home”
Reviewed 20 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

The description on the rental site fits perfectly. This apartment became our pied à terre for two wonderful weeks in Lourmarin and the surrounding region. The kitchen and bathroom are well appointed, and the high ceilings throughout add to the spaciousness of the apartment. The character and charm of the building, street and town are exceptional. Well done Alice and Gilberte for wonderful hospitality too (baguette, wine and a fresh basil plant were a lovely welcome touch).

“A hidden treasure”
Reviewed 14 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

La Toupine exceeded our expectations. It was a great home base to discover the wonders of Lourmarin and the Luberon area. The apartment was well equipped and charming.

“Exceeded all expectations!”
Reviewed 31 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had the most wonderful time in Lourmarin and it will be a trip we will cherish for years to come. We cannot speak highly enough of the beautiful, clean, typically Provencal apartment that had everything we could possibly need - from baskets for picking up the baguette in the morning to spare sun hats, card games, extra blankets and pillows, fully equipped kitchen and bathroom (extra cotton wool balls, washing power, you name it!) and books/brochures to leaf through.

Both bedrooms are beautifully laid out and comfortable and we loved getting up in the morning and throwing open the old wooden shutters to hear the buzz of the street below. The kitchen and lounge area were perfect for relaxing after long days sightseeing. There is a TV, speakers, plenty of plugs etc and just a charming feel of really living like a local in France.

The village itself is typical of the Luberon region, it is a perfect size for a peaceful stay but also has a nice buzz in the centre with several cafes where you can sit and watch the world go by, a stunning chateau with summer concerts, and a little patch where the locals play boules. Bars and restaurants are open quite late for an after dinner digestif and there are some nice boutiques, shops and art galleries. On fridays the town comes alive for a fantastic weekly market that stretches the length of several lanes. It is a great place from which to explore other Luberon villages like Roussillon and half an hour's drive to Aix en Provence.

We had no problems with checking in, we followed the detailed instructions and maps provided. A good tip would be to put the parking lot into the satnav rather than just the village, to avoid ending up in the centre. Marco had the keys ready for us and we arrived to find a basket of fruit, baguette and a bottle of wine. Simply lovely, we hope to return one day. Thank you so much Alice and her mother!

“Pretty apartment, but hard to locate.”
Reviewed 14 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Finding this apartment was horrendous. The instructions were hard to follow, eg park in the cherry tree parking area. None of us had ever seen a cherry tree so had no idea what to look for, plus this particular parking area is hidden behind a stone wall and can't be seen from the road. Then when we arrived on a Sunday afternoon a craft market was in progress, meaning there was no parking anywhere. It took us almost 2 hours circling the village trying to find a place to leave the car before we eventually met up with the kindly Gilberte, who showed us where the cherry tree park was and how to find the apartment, by which time we were nearly ready to give up. If a mud map showing the car park and the location of the apartment and location of the cafe where the keys were to be collected had been provided, it would have saved us a lot of frustration. Once we had dragged our luggage up 2 flights of stairs, we found a charmingly decorated apartment, spotlessly clean and light and airy. There were no views to speak of, but it is right in the village centre in a great spot. It was well appointed, the beds were comfortable and it felt very homely. Only real issue, other than the check in process, was the wooden box enclosing the hot water cylinder, which was at head height for those over 180cm, resulting in the men both banging their heads multiple times till they tied a cushion to the protruding edge. Lourmarin is well placed for day trips to a number of lovely villages, but beware, as the roads are very narrow.

“just a great experience”

My wife and I rented this property the last week in Oct. 2015. What a wonderful experience. From the first contact with the owners till the last day, everything was really well done.The apartment is decorated in country french chic, and it has a really home like feel! More importantly than the charm was the fact that the apartment was very, very clean and fresh. The kitchen was well stocked and the bath newly appointed with a great washer and dryer. Steps away from the front door were three restaurants and fun shopping. The village of Lourmarin is quaint and just lovely. Location is terrific . With a car, day trips all over provence, are within an easy and scenic drive. Did I say the owners are great,
including many recommendations for restaurants. Would I come back? Can't wait!!
