Peter Mayle's House is for Sale


Best-selling author Peter Mayle, who wrote A Year in Provence and 12 other books, is selling his 18th-century house on the outskirts of Lourmarin in the Luberon region of Provence. And as you can imagine, it's magnificent. Read all about it here, then see the listing and photos here.

  2. Magnificent!

    I always imagined a much simpler abode - maybe good so that the price is not openly advertised! ;-)

  3. Oh it is lovelier than I imagined! I wonder if we would be allowed to paint on the grounds when I take my group there in May?

  4. When he wrote A Year In Provence, his first house in Menerbes was very simple compared to this one.

  6. Thanks for posting this beautiful house Julie - I viewed the other Peter Mayle house outside Menerbes but this one is plus grand !!
    What a delightful area to live and the swimming pool is just gorgeous.

  7. The house in Lourmarin is gorgeous nothing like the simple house he renovated in Menerbes and chronicled in A Year in Provence. So is he leaving Provence again?

  8. Gorgeous house. Is he upping sticks from Provence again? Or maybe the present house is besieged by fans like the one in Ménerbes.

  11. Other wonderful properties for sale now in Provence include the legendary gardens and house of the great designer Nicole de Vésian, in Bonnieux. Check out Amazon if you don' t know this name for books on her.
