“This is a beautiful, old Chateau in the village of Lourmarin. A great time to visit is on the Friday market days. There's also a soccer/futbol field next door that my kids have played in many times.”

Restaurant
“This is a casual Italian restaurant located in what was once a stable; the area on the wall that once held the feed for the animals is still there. In the winter months, the ambience is cosy and inviting, especially in the back room around the fireplace; in the summer months, the outdoor tables, lined along the sidewalk and scattered around the Fontaine la Cordière, are filled quickly. Pizzas are baked on wood fire oven, and are excellent. The rest of the menu is also good. Reservations suggested.”

“Cafe Gaby is an institution; a typical French cafe, where locals and tourists alike can enjoy a cold or hot drink, some food and the favorite local pass time: People Watching. Great place!”

“Sunday brunch served on the terrace on a sunny day is the perfect way to start the day. Although, if the weather doesn't cooperate, the ambience inside is warm and welcoming, especially around the fireplace. The menu is extensive from very light omelettes and salads to braised meat dishes. The cuisine is traditional Provençal with an emphasis on regional and organic products. The portions are generous and the price very reasonable. Tea is served in the afternoon as well as ice cream. Reservations suggested. ”
