I told you last time about Lourmarin, but why should you go there too?
Quite simply, because it’s beautiful.
Twisting cobbled streets, limestone buildings the colour of honey,
faded shutters and clay tiled roof tops.
Chic boutiques, galleries, vibrant cafés and restaurants.
A fabulous Friday market,
linens, baskets, treasures from Provence.
A mystical 15th century château, lavish music concerts and soirées.
Local wineries, fairy tale perched villages of the surrounding Luberon.
The enchanting cities of Avignon and Aix-en-Provence less than an hour away.
The dazzling Mediterranean coast hardly any further.
But there’s another reason to visit Lourmarin….
to listen to the clock chime every hour just as it has done for centuries.
which, as they creak seem to whisper the secrets of the past to you.
and olive groves, passing heart stopping views.
and if you have, don’t you agree?
