The highly gentrified village of Lourmarin lies low-slung in the hollow of the Luberon’s south face, a sprawl of manicured green. Albert Camus loved this place from the moment he discovered it in the 1930s. After he won his Nobel Prize in 1957 he bought a house here and lived in it until his death in 1960 (he is buried in the village cemetery).
