In fabulous surroundings facing the village of Lourmarin, this castle was the very first Renaissance castle built in Provence and is composed of two parts. The old wing of the castle was built in the late 15th century by Foulques d'Agoult. The Italian-style loggia adds a touch of grand elegance, whereas the 16th century Renaisssance wing is completely furnished and houses 15th to 19th century art collections. The castle can be visited all year round. It hosts artists in summer (painters, sculpters, musicians...), and has therefore been dubbed the Villa Medicis of Provence. The castle also serves as the Cultural Centre and gives sumptuous concerts in summer on the castle terraces (jazz, classical and theatre shows). The Amis de Lourmarin association organises conferences on various different themes (truffles, lavender, Einstein...) the rest of the year. Children's activities, scavenger hunt games.
