Château - Lourmarin

In an exceptional setting facing the village, the Château de Lourmarin, the first Renaissance Château in Provence, consists of two parts: The old castle built at the end of the 15th century by Foulques d'Agoult. Its "great elegance" is noticeable thanks to its Italian-style loggia. The 16th century Renaissance wing is fully furnished and contains collections from the 15th to the 19th century.

The oldest part of Lourmarin castle was built in the 15th century by Foulques d'Agoult. From 1526 onwards, Louis d'Agoult-Montaubaun and his wife, Blanche de Lévis-Ventadour, had the Renaissance wing built with a remarkable unity and purity of style.

After the revolution, the castle had several owners who lost interest in it. It narrowly escaped complete destruction thanks to Laurent-Vibert. Visiting Lourmarin in 1920, this academic, heir of the company, was seduced by the charm of the castle, bought it and restored it.

When he died in 1925, Robert Laurent-Vibert bequeathed the castle to the Academy of Sciences, Agriculture, Arts and Belles Lettres of Aix, so that it could become a residence for artists.
