  • Nice site. The castle is well maintained with its small park next... The visit turns out to be very nice and the information and evidence of an era of our history are floods! Special attention is given to children with a small treasure hunt... even if he can be a bit complicated and tedious depending on age. A good essential time spent in this beautiful village of Lourmarin

  • Worth visiting to tour and/or buy some local wine in the cave at the base of the chateau. Also offers concerts and such from time to time.  more »
  • The oak was more on their way. People who live in Lourmarin and see more. Watching a cute shop Street is among the many uphill here is flat and easy to explore. Fine restaurants and cafes.

  • Simple, pretty setting. You really want it to me more historical. That's the feeling you get. It is historical and if you knew more about the salt trade and the importance of the pass his town guarded it would help. We visited this place quite a bit and walked and ran through the the gardens.
  • Really interesting place and history, the view is amazing and the visit is worth it! If you are around, definitely a place to visit!
  • Very simple but beautiful. Worth visit to the town.
  • Beautiful surrounding. A nice and relaxing place to take a walk
  • Be carefull. At parking near the chateau theft from car is usual. 18 september 2014 somebody has stollen all luggage, passports, macbook from car.
