Provence Dream is REAL !!!!!
You sit on your private terrace, comfortable in a chaise lounge, glass of rose at hand. Hawks soar overhead above the ancient vines of Grenache. The sun dips behind a stand of cypress trees planted as a “philosopher's walk” . This is the Provence dream many of us have , but while staying at Domaine de Casteuse it is reality.
We had a wonderful one week stay in the Les Oliviers unit in mid September. It was well appointed for a couple, and provided an excellent base for our touring. Respecting the history of the building and the area, the unit mixes modern renovations, with beautiful antique furniture. The bedroom with high ceilings and lovely eastward view featured a solid King bed and an impressive oak headboard. The estate is so quiet we had the best sleeps of our trip here. The fully renovated bathroom featured a rainfall shower with fixtures that allowed for accurate control of temperature. The living area contained a fully equipped kitchen. All we did was make coffee, slice bread and cheese, but I would not have hesitated to use the 3 burner stove or combi oven. It was lovely to have a dishwasher for our assortment of wine glasses and coffee cups. We had a chance to peek in the other unit available, and it was equally appointed. The two units are separate and do not share any common walls, making for a very quiet and private experience.
We spent many lovely late afternoons on the terrace after exploring many venues within an easy 1.5 hour drive from Villa. The pleasant village of Lourmarin is just a 5 minute walk. The Friday market was amazing, and enjoying coffee in the morning on the main plaza provided for fascinating people watching.
Our host Natallie was a gem. Totally fluent in English , She gave us many recommendations of interesting things to do - The village of Coucorn with a huge fountain in the town Square, the jaw dropping Sculpture garden at Chateau La Coste, and encouraged us to go south to the Mediterranean village of Cassis, She also provided us with fascinating stories of the history of Provence, Lourmarin , and of Domaine de Casteuse..
We look forward to returning !!!!!
Dear John and Laurie,
Thank you so much for your kind appreciation.
it was such a pleasure to welcome both of you, to share the Provencal slow lifestyle, drinking some delicious wine rose with some Lourmarin and Cucuron market products, watching quietly the sun set. from the terrasse. of your flat.
I also enjoyed our conversation and really hope you come back soon as there are still many ,hikes, experiences and cultural visits to do.
From now, i've just harvest the grapes of the vineyards and by the end of november will harvest the olives to make the oil of the domain ,hopinge to share both whenever you come back !
Sunset Terrace on a 6 acre estate with Pool and short walk to town!!
We had a wonderful stay at this quaint 6 Acre Estate! Totally updated apt with access to a beautiful pool and a terrace to enjoy a Sunset Cocktail! Nathalie could not have been more gracious and we will be back! A short 10 minute walk to town that is something out of a fairytale! Don’t miss the Friday market!!
Dear Curt ,
Thanks a lot for your kind message.and the so nice time we share all to gather wih your wife.
Wishing you soon return.
Natalie and the apartment are great.
Ville de Castenuse, Lourmarin. We spent about a week at Ville de Castenuse. First, Natalie is a lovely and charming hostess, there to assist with information, recommendations and a broad smile. Second, the property is ideally located, next to Chateau Lourmarin, a 5-10 minute walk to the village centre. We shared adjacent apartments with our traveling companions and the spaces couldn't have worked out better. Our terrasse had morning sun, their's afternoon shade for appetifs and wine. The "Yeah" Festival was ongoing during our time there. The good news? We could sit in Charisse lounges and watch and listen to the music. The bad news? As older folks, the music went on longer than we did. Ville de Castenuse would be ideal for anyone attending an event at the Chateau or in downtown Lourmarin. The apartments are comfortable, airy, and have a clothes washer and swimming pool for use. We had a wi-if issue and Natalie fixed it right away. Natalie recommended we walk Chateau de La Coste about 12 miles away. We'd never heard of it. The art and walk and restaurant were terrific surprises and additions to our vacation. I love Lourmarin. It is quaint, friendly, and filled with good shops and restaurants. Being able to look over the Chateau and village from Ville de Castenuse adds even more to the Luberon experience. Thanks Natalie!

Beautiful Villa and Town
My partner and I rented the villa in June 2015. We had a fantastic experience. The location was perfect as it was walking distance to Lourmarin (where we were able to pick up our daily fresh croissants from the boulangerie) and enjoy the numerous amazing restaurants in town where we were able to enjoy traditional and local cuisine. The apartment was separate and very private from the main home on the property. We especially enjoyed the private terrace that overlooked the vineyard where we had our breakfast each morning. The building was very historical but came with all the modern conveniences including the kitchen. Nathalie was very hospitable. She made us feel very welcome and was very helpful giving us advice and suggestions. She left us with a sampling of her olive oil that was grown on the property – which was very delicious. We went on numerous wine tours in the area and toured neighbouring charming towns. The highlight for us was renting bicycles from Bonnieux (they delivered the bikes to the villa) and visiting Cucuron (on market day). There is so much more to do in this area and will be back to enjoy it soon. We highly recommend this area and especially staying in this villa. Thank you to Nathalie for making our experience so special.

Many thanks for your kind appreciation; It was really a pleasure to have such guests.
Wishing you could come back soon..
