About the property

Contemporary villa that oozes comfort in Lourmarin

"La Bastide Etoile-Lourmarin" - Outstanding villa with modern comfort that can sleep up to 10 people. Located amongst Holm oaks on a private and secure property, it offers a heated pool and is located 10 minutes walk away from the medieval village of Lourmarin.

Made of top-quality furniture and equipment, the elegant decoration creates a zen atmosphere very appropriate to amazingly relaxing holidays. The green surroundings makes it an oasis of tranquillity.

The villa, equipped with air-conditioning throughout since 2016, boasts 5 bedrooms, 2 of which being en-suite bedrooms. One is located on the ground floor and the other one is on the first floor, and boasts a bathtub and a walk-in shower. There are also 4 toilets, 2 of which are separated (the one on the ground floor is a guest bathroom and includes a washbasin). At this level, you will also find: a large living room with a chimney, an adjoining kitchen and a laundry room, everything being on a surface of 190 m².

Two terraces, one of which is covered and the other one benefits from some partial shade, have a view of a landscaped park that boasts several relaxing areas. A 12x4m pool is heated and secured with an electric cover. It is surrounded by deckchairs and sunshades. An area with gravel can be used as a solarium and there is also a garage.

You will find the summer kitchen on the terrace that opens on the garden. It has been equipped with the traditional stone washbasin as well as a gas plancha.

The Luberon area, and more particularly the village of Lourmarin, is part of a landscape made of vineyards and olive trees. The region offers many activities like hiking, organizing picnics in the lavender fields when there are in bloom, discovering the gastronomy of the area by visiting truffle market or Christmas markets during winter, and finally, discovering the wines and the typical food of the region.

Cooking classes can be arranged as well as catering. Upon booking, you can even have a private chef right at home!

Reiki, regular and Tui-Na massages can also be booked at the Bastide, as well as Chi-Gong sessions.

We are asking for a 1.500€ security deposit which has to be paid upon arrival.

About Christel van Malsen

I am deeply in love with this magnificent region. After having visited many places in the world, and after many stays in the area, I decided to settle down here. It is without question the most beautiful part of France with perched villages, vineyards as far as one can see, charming colourful markets, and the warmth of the inhabitants. And of course, the climate!

Christel van Malsen purchased this villa in 2014

Why Christel van Malsen chose Luberon

This house that I am offering is my dream house. I pride myself on offering an outstanding service right from the moment of the booking and until the moment you will leave, regreatfully I am sure, La Bastide L'Etoile. Please don't forget that I am available for you at any time.

What makes this villa unique

* Close to the village - 10 min walk, peaceful surroundings not overlooked.

* The house boasts large south-oriented openings leading to the garden and the pool area.

* It is a true haven of peace in the heart of the Provence.

Excellent villa

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful villa in a beautiful area; the website pictures do not do it justice; the villa is very well appointed and well equipped. The outside space is beautiful and comfortable. We were a party of 10 and there was plenty of space for us all. An earlier review gave us concerns about lack of air conditioning, but Christel reassured us that the cooling system worked, and as long as shutters are kept closed in the daytime heat, as is the local practice, the villa remained cool. Christel was very responsive to any concerns/queries, and very attentive. We would certainly not hesitate to recommend this villa.

Wonderful home away from home!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed in Bastide Etoile Lourmarin for one week and truly enjoyed our stay. Booking online vacations can sometimes be scary, as the pictures are usually nicer than the property. In this case however, the property far exceeded the pictures. From the moment we walked in the door we knew we had chosen well! The house is very spacious, much more room than we needed. We could have easily traveled with friends or another family. The house is only 18 months old, beautifully, yet simply decorated, with very unique touches we really appreciated. The outdoor pool and grounds are beautiful. Lourmarin is about a 15 minute walk from the home. Some of which does not have a sidewalk, and the cars do speed down pretty fast. We decided to go to the "Marche's" in the local towns each day and buy food to cook at home. The kitchen is well equipped to do so. The only reason I did not rate the home a 5 star is due to the lack of air conditioning (which the owners are putting in for next year). As most the rooms have doors that open up, not windows, it was not as easy keeping it cool at night. Being americans as well, we are used to our air conditioning, and that was a challenge at night. But this however, is a personal preference. Others may not mind. Knowing that their will be air conditioning next year, I would, without hesitation return, as well as recommend this home to our friends. Christel, as well, was very attentive and helpful, and responded very quickly any time we had a question. Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home! We hope to be back again!

Superbes vacances en famille dans le Lubéron

  • 4 of 5

Une quinzaine de jours de soleil dans un cadre magnifique à quelques minutes d'un village typique. Une bastide moderne, équipée de tout le confort moderne, où nous avons passé de superbes vacances en famille.

Balades à pied ou à vélo, golfs à proximité, gastronomie à tous les coins de rue, marché hebdomadaire, et surtout farniente autour de la piscine.

De quoi trouver le bonheur pour chacun!

Fantastic week in a great villa

  • 5 of 5

We, a party of 4 adults and 4 small children, spent a lovely week in May in this beautiful spacious villa. It really was everything we hoped for. The house itself is well equipped and has nice cool rooms and bathrooms (it seemed brand new!). There was everything you could possibly need for your stay (big dvd collection, TV, music, big kitchen, nice spacious living room, beautiful garden, good terras and very nice pool). We had such lovely weather that we didn't use the indoor spaces much, because we stayed at the heated pool all day and we could even spend our evenings outside!

The village of Lourmarin, which was only a short drive, is very picturesque. We loved the Luberon area and especially the Bonnieux brocante market. We would highly recommend this villa. Thank you Christel for your warm welcome, the bottle of wine, great care and good tips!
