The large 12 x 6 metre pool is the centrepiece of outdoor living here at Villa Azur. Relax in a peaceful, natural setting - just what you want in Provence. There is an outdoor table for apéritifs and a large barbecue that can even double up as a pizza oven. The pool is fitted with colour-changing lights, so the atmosphere stays vibrant all night.
These two photos (above and below) show the house from opposite angles, set in its delightful 4,000 sq metre Mediterranean garden with olive trees, cypress trees, lavender and cacti, to name only a few. There are two parking places in a sheltered (but not locked) garage at the back of the above picture, as well as ample parking space for another couple of cars on the gravel, in or out of sight - whichever you prefer.
The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you might need and has a nice traditional yet modern feel to it - you'll love cooking in this atmosphere, looking out over the pool. We can also arrange for a chef to come and cook for you or to teach you all about the subtleties of Provençal cuisine.
The dining room is bright and spacious, inviting you to relax inside when it gets too hot around the pool. There is an upright piano just out of sight to the right of this photo for those who enjoy playing. Like most luxury holiday homes nowadays, Villa Azur has a secure broadband wireless network covering most of the property.
The living room, located in the same area as the dining room, is cosy and relaxing - just perfect if you're unlucky enough to experience a rainy day during your stay in Lourmarin. Out of sight, to the left of this photo, is a large fireplace to stay cosy all year round.
Upstairs is a movie projection room with two comfy sofas that can also unfold into 140 cm beds if necessary to accomodate kids, who probably won't require a safe and a coffee machine in their bedroom! This is also a good place to get some work done during your stay, if you really need to.
Situated on the ground floor level (which is a level lower than the communal rooms of the property) this independant apartment is ideal for a couple who require a little bit more privacy during their stay at Villa Azur.
Formerly Just Provence, Emotional Escapes presents Villa Azur, a modern luxury vacation rental in Lourmarin, Luberon.
Less than 5 minutes' walk from the beautiful village of Lourmarin, this luxury rental villa sits in a peaceful valley near this well-known village's Château. Furnished and decorated to a very high standard in a tasteful modern style, Villa Azur is an idyllic retreat in the heart of the Luberon National Park.
Probably most well-known from the books by Peter Mayle, Lourmarin enjoys a strong reputation, yet has managed to preserve all the charm and authenticity of real Provençal life and has successfully avoided becoming a major tourist attraction, unlike so many other towns in the south of France...
The recently restored property is air-conditioned throughout for your comfort, while each of the 6 bedrooms is equipped with an individual safe, mini fridge, and Nespresso coffee machine. Numerous paintings and works of art from the owner's private collection adorn the house - however, as a result of this, please be aware that the security deposit required to stay at Villa Azur is more substantial than at most properties.

Situated in the heart of the Luberon National Park, Lourmarin's numerous outdoor cafes, boutiques, art galleries and fine restaurants sets it apart from many other villages in the region. Lourmarin is renowned as one of the "Most Beautiful Villages in France"...
