Description

La Maraichère is a beautifully refurbished and stylishly decorated four bedroom Provencal home, set in a large garden with swimming pool and secure parking area for three cars, located right in the centre of picturesque Lourmarin.

With extensive outdoor spaces for relaxing and entertaining, and offering beautiful views of both the village and the surrounding Luberon hills (All the photographs featured in this listing are taken from the house and garden), La Maraichère provides the perfect country hideaway for up to eight people – only one minute’s walk from the bustling village centre.

After an extensive renovation – just completed – the house has been furnished with a carefully chosen blend of chic French antiques and fresh modern comforts. La Maraichère is Provence style – at its best.

Downstairs a spacious entry hall leads though to the fully equipped kitchen with island bench, range cooker, dishwasher and marble benchtops. A stable door leads onto the spacious rear terrace overlooking the village, while an enclosed pantry and separate modern laundry also lead off the kitchen.

A fully equipped study (WIFI throughout the house and garden) is on the left and then a wide arch leads through to an outstanding sitting and dining room with antique beams, open stone fireplace and reverse cycle air-conditioning – to provide a cool haven on even the hottest of days. There are two sets of double doors, one leading to the main garden and pool and the other to the rear terrace and view – perfect for evening cocktails while watching the sun setting over the terracotta rooftops of the village.

Also downstairs, the third and fourth bedrooms, each with a 160cm bed (the fourth bedroom can be separated into twin beds if required) share a modern tadelakt finish bathroom with both walk in shower and bath, as well as a separate WC.

Upstairs there are two huge bedrooms, which have the most spectacular 180 degree views over the village and Luberon hills. Both bedrooms have reverse cycle air conditioning, 180 cm beds (one can be separated into twin beds if required) and each has its own ensuite bathroom with rainfall shower with takelakt finish, vanity and WC.

The large garden has a second outdoor entertaining and BBQ area, perfect for lunch under the shade of the mature tilleul trees and overlooking the heated swimming pool (9 metres x 4 metres with ‘beach’ at one end and electric security cover), olive and fig trees and ‘jeu de boules’ or petanque area.

 

Our opinion

La Maraichere, which is available for rental on a weekly basis from Saturday to Saturday, or for longer lease, combines the space and privacy of a luxury country holiday home, with the convenience and atmosphere of being right in the centre of one of the most beautiful villages in Provence.
