4 bedrooms, sleeps 8. 2 Doubles, 2 twin bedrooms, 2 bathrooms

The villa is situated down a steep driveway, off a quiet lane, 20 minutes walk from the centre of Lorgues, which has numerous restaurants, 2 supermarkets, many other small shops and a weekly market. This 4-bedroomed villa (sleeps 8) is situated in peaceful terraced gardens, surrounded by mature pines and oak woods.

The villa has a private 4x9m swimming pool, sun terraces, BBQs, loungers and other garden furniture. The owner is not onsite and the hirers will have sole use of the villa, gardens and pool.

The house has four bedrooms, a living room with TV and stereo, a dining room, a kitchen with dishwasher and a washing machine, as well as 2 bathrooms and 2 toilets. The bedrooms are furnished with 2 double beds and 4 single beds. There is also a double bed settee in the lounge. The spacious ground floor living room has three large French windows, all opening up to an outside patio shaded by an old oak tree. There are also French windows onto the patio in the dining room and the kitchen.

Master Bedroom with Ensuite bathroom Downstairs:

The master bedroom features an antique French Oak Double bed, dual side tables & lamps. Step out on to the patio through the double French windows (also found in the living room & Dining Room). The ensuite bathroom features a full-size stand up shower and wash basin. The downstairs toilet is on the landing right outside the master bedroom.

Lounge:

After a long day of lounging by the pool or shopping in Lorgues or Le Muy markets, unwind in front of our Flat Screen TV (setup to receive UK and French TV) or sip a glass of wine on the Patio. If you prefer to stay indoors, check your email from the comfort of one of our 2 sofas with free Wireless Internet. Children will stay entertained with a media centre containing hundred of films and UK TV shows.

Dining Room:

Has a large Oak table with seating for 8.

The kitchen has a modern Glass Ceramic hob, Electric Oven, Dishwasher, 2 fridges (in recognition of the large parties that may be staying) one with a freezer section, a Washing Machine, Toaster, Microwave Oven, Glass 'French Press' Coffee Maker, Electric Kettle, Large Tea pot (you can get English Teabags in the local Intermarche). We have ample plates and cutlery. There is also every other utensil imaginable including Oyster Opening knives, utensils for holding and extracting escargots (try the 12 packs in the freezer section of Intermarche) corkscrews and bottle openers.

All the French Windows (total 6) are south facing and open onto a large patio area outside with wooden table and chairs to seat 8 in the shade of an old oak tree. There is a charcoal Weber barbeque here.

The stairs lead onto a Landing. Off the landing is:-

- another double bedroom with dual side tables and lamps

- a bathroom with a full size bath, shower attachment and a wash basin

- a toilet with a washbasin

- a bedroom with 2 single beds and another pull out bed suitable for a child (so we could actually sleep 9)

- a bedroom with 2 single beds

Outside:

Immediately outside is a large patio area and a lawn. On this patio is a large wooden table and 8 chairs for dining 'al-fresco', which is what you will probably be doing most of the time! This table is in the shade of an oak tree.

Around the side of the house there is parking space for at least 3 or 4 cars.

There are 2 separate stepped pathways up to the pool which is 9m x 4m with a minimim depth of 1.1m and a maximum depth of 2.2m. The pool is on a separate terrace at roughly 'first floor' level, which contains another large patio, a traditionally built (stone, wooden roof beams and roof tiles) poolhouse and shaded seating. There are 8 sun loungers, 8 more dining chairs and another table around the pool and poolhouse area.

The sloping gardens between the 2 main terraces are planted with lavender, rosemary, 'tree echium' and other Mediterranean plants.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My girls (17 and 12) and I had a fantastic holiday in the lovely town of Lorgues. They particularly loved the swimming pool and sun bathing; I enjoyed the peace and quiet. The villa has all the comforts of home and is in an idyllic spot, great to come back after our daily excursions. We drove to Frejus/St Raphael/St Tropez/Monaco/Cannes, making this central location unbeatable. Michael and Gail have a wealth of knowledge about the region and have provided guest information to make the best use of the area and days out.

Lorgues itself has a lot to offer with Market day, a great choice of restaurants, and the historic centre, there are also supermarkets, post office, bakeries and much more.

A brilliant, memorable holiday, we all hope to return.

Fantastic Villa set in a Picture Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at the villa, it was everything we hoped for and more! Set in a peaceful hillside location but within easy access to the coast and less than an hour to Cannes and St Tropez we felt we had the best of both worlds! The local town of Lorgues is picture perfect and only a short walk away, with great restaurants and a fantastic market every Tuesday. The villa, pool and surrounding grounds are more impressive than the pictures can do justice and left us thoroughly relaxed and reluctant to come home after two weeks! Can't thank Mike and Jean-Pierre enough for all their assistance. We'll definitely be returning! Matt, Harriet, Ant, Claire and Sir Sidney.

Lovely peaceful stay in a beautiful part of France

  • 5 of 5

The villa and grounds were lovely and everything was as expected from the advert and photos. Thanks for organising and getting things ready for us at the last minute! We enjoyed some of the local restaurants like Le Table de Pol in Lorgues. Some of the other nearby villages like TourTour are also really nice.

Thanks for a great stay. The villa was well appointed and comfortable, the facilities and kitchen equipment were good. We recommend the Chrissandier Restaurant in Lorgues and La Table in Tourtour. We love this area!

Lovely peaceful week in the South of France

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Lorgues for a week at the end june/early july 2014. We flew into Nice and the villa is about one hours drive fom the airport. Some friends from England joined us so we ended up with 4 adults and 4 children in the party. The villa suited us great! It had all the cooking equipment we needed, the showers were hot and powerful, the beds were fine. The location was good, the pool was nice, long evenings spent barbequing. The kids loved the pool lights after dark (once they'd worked out how to use them!). The kids also found the disused railway (now a cycle path) which is about 400 metres from the top of the driveway and used the bikes.

Fantastic Stay. Thanks

  • 5 of 5

Lovely time in Lorgues. The villa is in a great location in the hills just outside Lorgues. The photos and description are absolutely accurate. The villa is about a 15-20 minute walk from the centre of Lorgues (once you've negotiated the steep 50 odd metre driveway. The coast of Ste Maxime is about 40 minutes away (La Nartelle Plage is great!!), first week of Sept is a great time to come, schools are back, less crowds but the sea is still warm. If you get on the A8 then Nice, Cannes, Antibes are all around an hour away. There were 6 in our party, plenty of room, nice peace and quiet and a great pool with a "proper" deep end. Mike / Jean-Philippe were very helpful in organising this last minute... thanks.

Very disappointing and uncomfortable

  • 1 of 5

This was our 3rd visit to Lorgues as we love the area but the worst house we have rented. No attention was paid to comfort with thin uncomfortable mattresses, uncomfortable seating and no cushions for the sun beds. The photo shows paving around the pool but it is on a higher level and the "patio" around the house is loose pebbles. Worse than that are the steps down from the kitchen and sitting room, one is a cemented-in log on its side, the other 2 large lumps of rock with bits of cement. Both are accidents waiting to happen and I wonder how this could ever pass safety regulations.

Two bikes are provided but one had the tyre off with a puncture and although we asked if it could be repaired, and we were there for 3 weeks, it never was.

The pool is dirty along the join lines on the base, and there are loose slabs around the pool. In all the time we were there I was never aware of anyone cleaning or treating the pool. I did get and eye infection.

Only one bed was made up, although I had said family were arriving the second week and I had to insist on more bedding.

I told the owner of my concerns and he claims not to know what I am talking about. I would not recommend this property to anyone.

There is an incredibly long, steep slope down to the house, not good for a big car and a difficult walk up to the road.

L'Estellan is a delightful restaurant with excellent food and we also enjoyed Chez Vincent.

Owner's Response: This guest booked the house for 2 people, using the "Book Now" feature of the website, with no questions or dialogue before making the booking. It did look a little strange to me that 2 people would want to book a house advertised for 8, for a 3 week stay. The house is quite keenly priced in September. Nothing more was heard from these people, even when we did our usual 8 week before the stay communication with directions and instructions. Before the advent of the "book now" button we would personalise the contract and add the exact number of people staying, numbers of children etc.., before firming up the booking. When these people arrived, and were met by my local property manager, there were indeed two people in the party. However, they said the "the family" were arriving next week and they needed more beds making up. It is quite usual for people to change the size of their party and to tell us before they arrive. We never did find out exactly how many people were staying at the house. We advertise for 8, but it will sleep 11 at a pinch. I think things got a little heated when my local property manager subsequently visited and tried to find out how many people were staying. We suspect it was more than 8. This actually breaks the terms of the contract they had with us. Our photos are very clear, they show the property as it is, you can see the land slopes, you can see the pool is not on the same level as the house and that there is gravel outside the house. These people fell out with my property manager when he tried to find out how many people were staying. My property manager is responsible for cleaning the pool and other maintenance round the grounds, so some of the comments in this review are aimed undermining him and I dispute them 100%. I also refute the claim that the rocks we have used to build steps are unsafe and there is no "cemented in log". As I said earlier, we advertise as sleeping 8 but could sleep 11 at a push. The beds above advertised capacity may not have mattresses as thick as this reviewer would like. This review is NOT a true reflection of what our property is like.

The villa is in the centre of the department of the Var; Provence/Cotes D’Azur region of France. This is a beautiful area set between the Mediterranean Sea and the Gorges du Verdon and is superb for touring.

The villa is a 20 minute walk from the centre of Lorgues, which is a charming medieval village with many cafes, shops, bars and restaurants, and a vibrant weekly street market.

A lot of the ancient walls, defensive gates and other old buildings remain intact. The old narrow streets have vaulted passages, ancient stairs, and many buildings and doorways contain lovely stone carvings.

Lorgues is located in the middle of wineries and fields of olive trees. It can be accessed via the A8 Autoroute (20 km) or the SNCF train station of Les Arcs-Draguignan (12 km), Toulon Airport at 45 mn, Nice Airport at 1 h and Marseiles-Marignane airport 1 h 30 away.

There are many historic villages and famous Provencal vineyards close by. An easy drive brings you to the beaches and lively resorts at Sainte Maxime, Frejus and Saint Raphael, (both these resorts have an aquapark), Port Grimaud and Saint Tropez. There is also a scuba diving school in Saint Maxime and a Golf Course near Le Muy. There are detailed instructions at the villa on our favourite beaches with directions and parking tips/info and info on the best snorkelling beaches, best swimming beaches etc.

About 45 minutes away amidst breathtaking scenery, the Gorges du Verdon - the French Grand Canyon - and Lake St Croix, the largest lake in Provence, offer swimming, walking, sailing, white water rafting, kayaking and windsurfing.

Other local attractions include Les Arcs, Flayosc, the Abbaye du Thoronet, the waterfall at Sillans de Cascade, and the village of Chateaudouble set in stunning mountain scenery.

Cannes with the lovely La Croisette, Antibes with its old town and Aquasplash / Marineland nearby, and the gorgeous seaside village of Theoule-sur-mer are less than an hours drive away.

Nice and Aix en Provence are an hour's drive; Italy and Monaco are an easy day's outing and so are the picturesque islands just off the coast from Le Lavandou or Hyeres.

Again there are detailed directions and instructions (eg places to park) on all these places, at the house; for example, the location of the fantastic public swimming platform in Monaco near the seaward side of the harbour wall, with swimming pool like steps into the sea. Great for cooling off during a hot day walking around the sites in Monte Carlo / Monaco, just remember a towel and swimming gear!

Literally across the road from the villa is the forest leading up the hill to the Saint Ferreol Hermitage site with a 13th-century chapel, ruins of a Ligurian oppidum and Roman castrum, and a lovely forest walk.

The villa is about 500 Metres from the disused railway 'Train de Pignes' that ran over 200Km from Nice to Meyrarges in the Bouches du Rhone. A lot of it is now a fantastic cycle track. There is a project underway to completely open up the track from Barjols to Fayence (the remaining major work required is to complete the section that crosses the town section of Draguignan). There are 2 adult mountain bikes at the house and lots more information on cycle routes.

There are municipal tennis courts in Lorgues less than 1 Km away from the villa.

Lorgues has 2 large supermarkets, Intermarche (nearest petrol) and Casino which are open on Sunday mornings in the summer. In the centre of Lorgues there are all the usual smaller shops (some of which open sunday mornings all year round) and numerous restaurants, cafes and bars. There are markets at Aups (Wed & Sat), Lorgues (Tues) & Salernes (Sun) and a very large Sunday Provencal market at Le Muy. Draguignan (15mins drive), the capital of the Var, has Hypermarkets, a rich variety of individual shops, where you can buy clothes, handmade chocolates, pastries, and gifts. There is also a theatre, cinema, ten pin bowling. All the surrounding villages have a number of restaurants, serving primarily French cuisine. Noteable restaurants very closeby include. The Michelin starred Chez Bruno about 1.5 Km from Lorgues on road to Taradeau. Le Chrissandier and Le Table du Moulin in the centre of Lorgues and Chateau de Berne about 2km north of Lorgues.
