17th century ‘maison de village’ with private terrace

This charming village house is in a peaceful part of central Lourmarin while having all the village’s facilities and social life on the doorstep.

La Chouette is a comfortable family home that has all the ‘mod cons’ while retaining interesting and charming features. Situated in a quiet location it is just seconds from the buzz and facilities of one of France’s most beautiful villages.

The house is on three levels. There is an entrance hall at street level where outdoor shoes and jackets can be stored. Stairs then lead up to the three living areas of the house; the staircases on each level have handrails.

On the first floor you’ll find the kitchen, dining room and reading nook. Through this pretty little reading area, which is curtained off from the dining room, you can access a cute mezzanine platform with sleeping accommodation (bed 200x125cm) that could prove useful for an overnight guest.

There’s a rear bedroom on this floor, and while it has no view it’s well ventilated via a window, making it the coolest one in summer! Two other bedrooms and a bathroom with large shower are located on the third floor.

The owner prefers to limit the number of guests to four, and as a result is offering this property at very reasonable rates. The accommodation will feel very spacious for a small group – during the day you’ll be able to spread out across the reading nook, living room, kitchen and private patio. Since there are effectively four separate bedrooms (including the mezzanine), this house is perfect for four single friends.

There’s a full bathroom on the first floor, which houses a utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer.

The kitchen is well equipped for you to experiment with some Provençal cooking or you can BBQ on the sun terrace, using herbs from our pots.

You’ll find a comfy lounge on the second level, which leads on to the terrace. This private, pot-planted area is equipped with table and chairs for outside eating. There is also a charcoal fired BBQ unit. (Guests are respectfully asked not to smoke within the confines of the house but may feel free to do so on the terrace.)

As for car parking, you can use one of several free parking areas just minutes from the apartment.


The change-over day for this property is Saturday. Bookings will be taken for a week (7 nights) at a time. Submit your booking enquiry to receive a summary by email. We will get back to you as soon as possible to confirm your request.

    Beyond our highest hopes!

    We spend a week at this lovely spot in Lourmarin. What a treat. The accommodations were perfect for the 3 of us as single adults, and yet I plan to return with my whole family in the future. The O’Neills have equipped this property with everything one needs, including scads of information on the surrounding area, the town itself, and special activities. We loved going to nearby markets, returning to the patio for lunch, and often opted to cook our evening meals and then meander through the village to local cafes for a nightcap. Although we spent another week further east in another rental we found Lourmarin and our accommodations at the O’Neills’ far superior, more user-friendly, and so easily accessible to everything in the little town and all sorts of daily excursions. The property was extremely clean and easy to keep clean; the neighbors were friendly and quiet, the shopkeepers were particularly nice and willing to answer any questions we might have and the Friday market was the very best!!!!! As a matter of fact, we returned to it a week later, despite a 2-hour drive. We loved our the other local markets, the day we spent in Roussillon, going to the Caleches in Cassis, and the well stocked U. Initially we were a little daunted by not being to park right in front of the property – however, we very quickly found that we could park extremely close and found it a treat to walk to and from the car through the little alleys. We absolutely loved taking mystery rides through the lavender and vineyards, checking out other little villages, and just walking around the corner for a beer or glass of wine in the cafes. This property comes with my very highest recommendation. I certainly plan to return as soon as I can and am very willing to speak with anyone who might have questions.

    A most wonderful holiday

    I spent many hours earlier this year searching the internet for the perfect holiday house for our extended family with ages ranging from 21 to 83. Our criteria being a town house in a pretty village with direct access to restaurants and shops. After much research I found the perfect house in what looked like an idyllic village, Loumarin. I contacted Jim & Linda who understandably thought the house would be unsuitable for my 83 year old father due to the stairs and accommodation arranged over three levels. However, despite his years, my father is very able and after numerous witty e-mails back and forth with Jim and Linda we went ahead and booked. Thank goodness we did, we had the most wonderful holiday in a lovely home. The house was as expected beautifully furnished, well equipped and in a perfect location tucked away in a side street and yet minutes from the shops, patisserie and restaurants. The village is so pretty with a fantastic weekly market and the locals were extremely friendly and accommodating. Virginie, who was our contact in Loumarin, was a star. We had to contact a doctor whilst we were there and despite the language barrier, she was extremely helpful. The surrounding hilltop villages and countryside are well worth a visit, Gordes in particular (get there early if you are going on market day). However, we decided we did extremely well to have chosen the prettiest village by far in the area and we spent most of our time sitting in the cafes watching the world go by and enjoying evening strolls exploring the side streets after a delicious and relaxing meal in one of the many local restaurants. We would highly recommend Jim & Linda’s charming house and are very much looking forward to a return trip although we would like to keep Loumarin our little secret!!

    This property ticked all of our boxes

    We were two couples sharing this property in Lourmarin for two weeks. It was the perfect base for exploring the towns and villages in the area but also the perfect place for exploring the lovely village of Lourmarin. Quiet accommodation just steps from the center of the village, its cafes and wonderful Boulangerie. There are steps to challenge you, so not handicapped friendly. The kitchen is well equipped, there are laundry facilities on site and comfortable beds for sleeping. The sitting room, two floors above grade, offers comfortable seating, fireplace, TV, library with reference books for the area and french doors to a private roof terrace over the dining area. Lots of free parking in the village less than a 5 minute walk from the property. Each couple had a car so that was a welcome find. After exploring several villages in the area, we could not envision staying anywhere else. You could easily walk to restaurants, shopping the weekly market, bank, small super market, local attractions and a number of small boutiques.

    Our best decision

    Having now explored many of the beautiful villages in the Luberon area, Lourmarin would definitely still be my choice of where to stay and base myself. Jim & Linda’s 4 bedroom home is in a quiet little street right in the heart of the village. Beautifully presented on 3 levels with a private terrace on which to enjoy the remains of the day. It was well equipped with all you need and personal touches made it a delightful home rather than just a place to stay. To be able to wander the quiet little streets at night after a fabulous meal at one of the many restaurants and never be far from the front door of home was bliss. We were grateful every day that we chose to stay in the heart of the village and could just open the front door or look out the window to be part of the village life. Jim & Linda were fantastic to liaise with. Quick to respond, informative, helpful and trusting that we would love and care for their home as much as they do. The organisational part of booking, getting keys on the day etc was very easy. We just loved Lourmarin. Our choice of home for 9 nights ? – the best decision we’ve ever made! Thanks again Jim & Linda

    Excellent stay in Lourmarin!

    My Husband, I and my parents hired the house for a week in May.The house was very clean and bright and had everything you could wish for. Brilliant location, we really enjoyed being able to walk to the restaurants in the evening for dinner and little glass of wine. The local people made us feel really welcome. Great all round will be back and the weather was outstanding.

    Merveilleux séjour à Lourmarin

    Trois semaine de bonheur à Lourmarin dans la superbe maison de Jim et Linda. Située en plein centre de ce si joli village, elle peut accueillir une grande famille. Les différents espaces sont chaleureux et permettent à chacun de trouver calme et tranquilité si nécessaire. Sans oublier la terrasse, équipée d’un barbecue, que nous avons appréciée chaque jour de soleil (c’est à dire tous les jours !)

    Perfect house in the heart of the southern Luberon!

    My husband and I have rented houses in various parts of France for the past 16 years in August. This particular area, the Southern Luberon, is our favorite. Jim and Linda’s “Maison de Village” provided the best experience up until now, and we have been very pleased with every house we’ve rented. The house is spacious (could easily accomodate 2 couples or people with children), has all the amenities, beautifully decorated. It lacked nothing. Being in the heart of Lourmarin was so convenient and pleasureful. The village is both quiet and lively– art galleries, great restaurants, shops, markets. And the owners are a pleasure to deal with. Very accessible by email and warm, kind folks. I feel like I’ve gotten to know them without every having spoken directly. We loved the house and our stay so much that, for the first time, we decided to rent the house again next summer. You can’t go wrong with this rental.
