Why Bourgeteau Lejars Gaëlle chose Lauris
Lauris is a perched village in the South of the Luberon. Because of its special location, overlooking the Durance valley and preceding the typical mounts of the Luberon, its atmosphere and environment are absolutely unique. My husband and I fell in love with this place 10 years ago. One year ago, I had the desire, and the opportunity, to restore this house, which is a part of the village's old priory. I wanted to give it a new life, and to make it an informal and inviting place. If, like me, you are a lover of Provence villages and their typical stone houses. If you care about nature, if you like arts exhibitions and artistic atmospheres, and if you wish to discover the region in a more authentic way, then this house is for you! This year is its first season. I will open its doors from the 7th of June until the 26th of September, 2014. After that, I will keep it lively through my Creation Workshop. And, as I want to make people discover some of the talents in our beautiful region, I will organise themed parties and exhibitions in the house. This house is a rebirth for me and I hope it will be the perfect holiday place for you.
What makes this House unique
Situated under the Church's stunning wrought-iron campanile, this house doesn't have a pool, nor a garden, but it will welcome you with all the simplicity and warmth of houses of the old times. With its large vaulting, its fireplace in the centre of the living room, its stone staircase directly carved into the rock and its secret nooks, this house is a true haven of peace and inspiration. Located in the heart of the historical area of Lauris, where there is almost no traffic, this house is peaceful yet close to all the shops and the village's hustle and bustle. Its 120 sq. m, its 3 floors and its 9 sleeping arrangements make it the perfect place for family gatherings or for holiday with friends. You can park your car for free either on the place of the church or in the parking spots nearby.

Charming house in the heart of the vieux village
A lovely, unique, warmly welcoming space created by the host along with her generous hospitality made this a perfect base for our adventures in Provence. We got to know Lauris a bit during our short stay, and the house was perfectly situated steps away from the main street of the village, yet was very peaceful, right next to the church and it’s beautiful ironwork Provençal belltower.
We only wish we could have stayed longer!
We stayed at Gaelle's place for 1 week and found it all fantastic. The house, surroundings, the whole area and Gaelle herself. She was very kind and attentive. Just a perfect vacation!
The village of Lauris is very quaint, with picturesque scenes and a lovely view of the valley from the Chateau.
Our host, Gaëlle was very helpful and kind. She gave wonderful recommendations and had a stash of toys for our 2 year old to play during our stay. We felt at home in her simply, very chic decorated place.
Beautiful house in Lauris
My family and I spent two wonderful weeks in this beautiful house in Lauris. The house is within walking distance of stores and near the Lauris Chateau.
The owner is a terrific host. She is very responsive and attends to her clients with great care.
If you are looking for an experience of living in a village in the Luberon, I would highly recommend renting this house.
splendido appartamento su 3 piani
La casa di Gaëlle è meravigliosa e - grazie a una particolare modularità - può essere sfruttata in diverse combinazioni. Noi eravamo 4 adulti e 4 bambini e ci siamo stati benissimo. La casa è pulita ed è curata in ogni dettaglio, con molto gusto. C'è tutto l'indispensabile e niente di superfluo.
Gaëlle è stata super gentile e la sua accoglienza impeccabile.
Il paese dove si trova è piccolo, ma molto caratteristico. La posizione è nella parte più bella del paese, di fianco alla chiesa.
Se dovessimo tornare in quella zona per un'altra vacanza, torneremmo sicuramente in questo appartamento.
Lauris is a perched village typical of the Luberon natural regional park. At the foot of the village, you can easily enjoy hiking, cycling, and horse or donkey riding.
The river La Durance passes 500 meters away from the bottom of the village. It is the perfect place to enjoy really refreshing moments or to watch the surrounding fauna and flora. You can also go for beautiful canoe rides. There are several lakes less than 10 minutes away from the village.
Thanks to its shops, bars and restaurants, and its cultural and artistic activities, Lauris is a lively village all year round. Exhibitions and creative workshops are often arranged, and, during summer, the castle's gardens are animated with themed concert parties called 'Les Nocturnes de Lauris'. These famous gardens were being restored during the last few years. Thanks to this long-term process, they have now become real conservatory gardens for dye plants, unique in Europe (Don't miss it!)
Furthermore, Lauris has the advantage to be situated at the intersection of some of the major roads of the PACA region. This will make your visit of the surroundings and of the region a lot easier.
You are 30 minutes away from Aix-en-Provence (Monet's town), from Avignon (famous for its festival in July), from Fontaine-de-Vaucluse, and from the La Barben's zoo.
You are 1 hour away from Marseille and from the calanques of Cassis, from Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer (beautiful beaches of Camargue), from Arles and its amphitheatre, from Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, and from Fontaine-de-Vaucluse; You are 10 minutes away from La Roque-d'Anthéron (music festival in July), 5 minutes away from Lourmarin, a listed village (“In the footsteps of Albert Camus”)
