Château de Lourmarin

This charming château, located in fabulous surroundings facing the village of Lourmarin and open throughout the year, was the very first Renaissance castle built in Provence. The old wing, built in the late 15th century by Foulques d’Agoult, is one of the two sections which comprises the castle.

Lovely Italian-style loggia which lends the Château a certain "grand elegance". Fully furnished 16th century Renaisssance wing which houses 15th to 19th century art collections.
Open to visitors all year round. In summer, it becomes an artists' residence (painters, sculptors, musicians etc.), earning it the nickname "The Villa Medicis of Provence." The castle also serves as a cultural centre, hosting extravagant artistic events in summer including jazz and classical music concerts as well as plays, on the castle terraces.


The Amis de Lourmarin Association organises conferences on various themes throughout the year. There are also numerous other celebrations including a Renaissance festival, a Spring pop and rock festival and a classical music festival in the summer as well as a variety of exhibitions.
