  • Imposing Castle, seen from the outside, overlooking the village of Lourmarin. It is the first "renaissance" Castle built in Provence. Inside, furnished is interresting with multiple brass cooking in the fireplace, tiles yellow brilliant in parts, at the great Hall of music. For Halloween, the décor was suited (nice if you have children). Stroll in the garden before you leave: there are plenty of places where to make beautiful pictures with a pretty light. As for the price of admission, dear friends TA, challenge it when you know what represents the maintenance of our museums and ancient monuments?

  • 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.
