Lorgues townhome description

Everyone loves Lorgues. This is a small, hill village dating from 1100's with an outstanding Provencal market and great restaurants. The main street is shaded by Plane trees with small shops and local cafes that invite one to linger over wine and coffee and croissants watching the world go by.

The house is at the top of the village on a quiet cul de sac that is less than a 3 minute walk from the main street. It is called 'La Grange'. Somewhere in its 900 year old history it was a barn, but before that recent research indicates it was the residence of local monks associated with Saint Martins Parish. Its medieval lineage shows in the stone fleur de lys carving indicating it is one of the town's oldest dwellings.

Today it is a lovely 1500 sq. foot house on two floors. The remodeling was done 5 years ago by a local designer and the house has both a cozy and spacious feel. It has the most beautiful kitchen. If you want to try your hand at cooking some of the delicacies from the local markets, this is the house for you. WE hardly ever really cook, but often enjoy eating dinner at home after a day exploring the hill towns or at the coast or the golf course, and it's wonderful to prepare our purchases in such an ambiance... or on hot days take a simple dinner to the patio and contemplate the 1000 year old town wall adjacent to the courtyard.

The ground floor of the house has a living room with seating for 6, a fireplace, English and French language TV, stereo. The kitchen includes an excellent new 5 burner stove, frig, freezer, dishwasher, micro, coffee maker and all pots, pans, plates and glasses necessary. The dining room table seats 6 to 8, and gives onto a courtyard through large glass doors.

On the second floor the master bedroom is very large and light with tall ceilings, a skylight, and windows that open onto the courtyard. The air conditioner in the master bedroom keeps things comfortable in hot weather, but the house is stone and keeps cool itself as it is shaded during the hottest part of the day. There is a large bath with tadlakt finishes like those used on the palaces of Morocco. There is a large tub and shower wand, heated towel rack and a closet with washer, dryer, iron, etc. Hair dryers are included. This bedroom has its own study with desk, lounge chair and internet and computer hooked to the internet. Just turn it on and get your email.

The second bedroom is of good size with comfortable bed, closet and separate bath with sink and walk in shower. There is a separate toilet room.

The stairway leading to the 2nd floor is modern with an unguarded open side making it dangerous for small children. For this reason and the high quality of some of the furniture,the house is not suitable for small children.

There is parking, when available, in the courtyard next door. If not, in one of 2 town lots a block away.

                      Lorgues has a fabulous Provencal market weekly and is in the heart of the wine country, surrounded by vineyards, local farmers markets and olive groves. It is half way between Nice and Aix en Provence and a half hours drive to the coastal towns of the St. Martine and the ferry to St. Tropez.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: Bill and I live in northern California on 25 acres with our 5 sheep, 4 chickens, a small vineyard and our beloved Jack Russell Terrier, Buck. Bill was a banker and I was a French teacher at a local high school. 5 years ago, after retirement, we bought an apartment in Paris. But, marvelous as Paris is, we missed small town life. Last year we found the house of our dreams on the internet and sold Paris and bought this dreamy house in Lorgues. We spend 3 months a year in France, mostly in the spring and fall. We have furnished it with the wonderful things we bought for the Paris apartment. We hope those who rent it will love and treasure our things as we do. In France we love to shop, go to wineries, explore the hill towns, go to Aix shopping for antiques, go the Nice or Antibes for lunch or photograph the uniqueness of the area. And we love the people in Lorgues, their warmth and welcoming ways.

                      Why the Owner Chose Lorgues:
                      These colorful hill villages like Lorgues are a thousand years old. They are south facing, warm in the winter and cooler in the summer than the coast. They are much less crowded in July and August than the coastal beaches, but still are in close proximity to the glories of the Cote D'Azur. We can have the easy access and warmth of a small village with the glamour of the great colorful towns of Provence an easy hours drive. Lorgues is a 15 minute drive from the train station at Les Arc that serves the TGV from Paris and Nice. It is also very close to theA 8 auto route to Nice and Italy to the East and Aix, Marseille and Lyon to the West. The Gorge of the Verdun is 45 minutes north.
