                      Villa Les Geraniums is located in the heart of the rose wine-growing region of France. Visit the many local wineries and decide which you like best. The Gorges du Verdon, the Grand Canyon of France, lies less than one hour to the north and offers swimming, boating, and hiking. The Mediterranean coast lies 45 minutes to the south. The Italian border is 90 minutes to the east - go to Italy for lunch!

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About the owner: My wife and I live in a beautiful but rainy city in the Pacific Northwest. We are both francophiles, and it seemed natural to want to spend part of our year in Provence. There we thrive on the sunny weather, wonderful friends and soul-satisfying food and wine that await at Villa Les Geraniums in Lorgues. Spend a week or two and you'll understand!

                      Why the Owner Chose Lorgues:
                      Lorgues is located in the Var region of southern France. Lorgues is a beautiful and historic market town, but it is also a real town where people live and work. You will find a full range of restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets as well as bakeries, pastry shops, markets, newsagents, a cinema and a post office. The weekly Tuesday market offers a cornucopia of clothing, decorative items and foods of all descriptions. Lorgues is conveniently accessible by air, rail and road. The Mediterranean coast is 45 minutes to the south, while the rugged Gorges du Verdon (the Grand Canyon of France) is an hour to the north. The Italian border lies ninety minutes to the east. And, of course, there is the wonderful climate of the south of France.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      Villa Les Geraniums combines the convenience of the town with the pleasures of the country. The villa is perched on a hill overlooking Lorgues, a town of 8500 inhabitants which is a 12 minute walk down from the house. Lorgues offers all the amenities a guest could wish, including what is likely the best weekly market in the region. However, once back at the house, you're on top of the world and ready to enjoy the views, the gentle breezes and a glass of rose by the pool!
