Overview

About the property

A quiet duplex in the heart of Lourmarin

AJOUCADOU means “The Perch” in Provencal. The name is well suited to this house, located in the heart of the beautiful village of Lourmarin.

We completely renovated the two storeys of the building, above the art “Galerie du Temple”.
We split it into three independent apartments with a common entrance “rue Juiverie”.


Our choice was to use noble materials such as, marble and granite, oak and teak for the joy of the eyes as well as for comfort.

All the rooms have air conditioning and heating and we thought of little enjoyable details such as: a wine cellar, an espresso machine, a dishwasher, and bathrobes, for you to spend an even nicer stay.

Le Nid 2 bedroom apartment is fully equipped, the first level is a living-dining room and kitchen and climbing a superb spiral staircase made by the iron craftsman “Claude”, you reach the bedroom and its attractive bathroom.

From here through the floor to ceiling high window, you can admire the steeple, and see the hours passing by on the village clock dial.

Why Jamie Ivey chose Lourmarin

The village of Lourmarin is situated at the entrance to the valley cut into the Luberon by the Aigue Brun river. It is surrounded by fields of vines and olive trees. It’s narrow cobbled streets, are lined with fountains. Classed one of the most beautiful villages in France it is home to a Roman church, a Protestant temple and a magnificent chateau.

Lourmarin has a lively but authentic atmosphere. Restaurants and cafes are plentiful. Charming boutiques line the main street. Artists can be seen at work in their studios. The writer Henri Bosco described Lourmarin as “the most charming village in the Luberon.” Throughout it’s history it has attracted writers, from Albert Camus to Peter Mayle, with its special atmosphere.

You will not find traffic lights or paid parking spaces in Lourmarin. Everybody is able to park and then explore its pedestrian old streets. Rue de La Juiverie where the Ajoucadou apartments are located is the oldest street in the village. It is now lined by antique shops, book shops, artist studios and stylish boutiques.

The weekend in Lourmarin begins every Friday morning with one of the largest and most colourful markets in the Luberon. Almost everything is on sale from wonderful food to poterie, Provencal linen, clothes, hats and baskets. From April to the end of September either on Saturday or Sunday, or on both days, Lourmarin also hosts either an antique market or an artisan market. These markets are great opportunities to pick up unique items for the home. Most weekend evenings there is also a musical recital at the Chateau.

Lourmarin is also the perfect base from which to tour the region. Aix en Provence, Arles, Saint Remy de Provence, Les Baux de Provence and Avignon are all within easy reach. As is the seaside. Resorts such as Cassis, Bandol, and Sanary Sur Mer, are all an hour away. Closer to home the picturesque villages of the Luberon await: Grambois, Gordes, Ménerbes, Roussillon, Bonnieux, Goult, Ansouis, Cucuron, Vaugines

Charming, perfectly situated

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is nicely decorated, modern in an old Provençal village structure, with all of the necessary amenities to feel at home while visiting the region. The owners are lovely people! My stay here was excellent. I will definitely return.
