Local Activities: This is an excellent place for walking with panoramic views in abundance. Local markets can be experienced each day of the week in different towns and there are plenty of delightful villages to explore. Lorgues, one of the oldest and most typical Provençale villages – 10 000 inhabitants – has a rich historic and cultural heritage and goes back to the Middle Ages. Visit the 12h century fortified walls and the medieval atmosphere comes alive. Lorgues offers a variety of artistic and sports activities as well as the local market, AOC wines and honey, which all offer a taste of regional tradition.
Local Food and Wine: A restaurant is right on the “doorstep” in St. Antonin and several good, inexpensive restaurants can of course be found in Lorgues, just 10 minutes’ drive away.
All Year Round Holiday Place: With the locals boasting “300 days of sun a year” this location is a special place to come any time of the year.
Please note that low season and Christmas/New Year prices do not include the cost of electricity. This will be charged to the client separately.
The cottage was our perfect holiday! It was well equipped, with a lovely open plan interior which helped keep it cool inside.....very important, as it was blistering outside!
The cottage provided ample shade under the terrace to enjoy alfresco dining. Large table outside wit lots of seating. We are a family of 6 and were very comfortable, not cramped at all.
Gorgeous pool with a really useful shower and toilet next to the pool.
The village has everything you need...shop, bakery, restaurant/bar, tennis courts, playground and local wine growers!!! Port Grimaud was a very scenic hour long drive. The coast is great, but it's so lovely to come back to rural and peaceful surroundings.
The children, ages 14, 12, 10 and 8, all enjoyed their holiday and have begged to return next year. Bob and Christine, the owners, are very welcoming and helpful, and not intrusive at all.
We will be booking next year!!!
A really lovely cottage with everything you need for a relaxing stay. The lounge is beautifuuly furnished, the kitchen is very well equiped, the bedrooms are all a good size with very comfy beds and always plenty of hot water. The pool is brilliant and very well maintained.
The owner is lovely. Friendly and helpful without being intrusive.
This was just the perfect place to relax and unwind but also within easy driving distance of loads of places if you want to get out and about.
