Le Lauron has been beautifully restored to create a wonderful family home. The house has 5 twin/double bedrooms plus a bunk bed room adjoining the master bedroom. In addition there is a separate annex with a bedroom, living room/kitchenette and bathroom which can sleep a further 4. The South facing house stands in 4 acres of meadows terraces and gardens enjoying superb views of the valley below and the surrounding mountains. The garden is stocked with hundreds of rose, oleander lavender and rosemary bushes; cherries, figs, plums, apples and almonds all grow near the house. There is a stream running close to the house into the meadow below which also contains a newly re-surfaced tennis court. There's a boule pitch, trampoline, croquet set and table tennis table. The large 14-metre heated swimming pool is on the same level as, but separate from the house. As it is used as a family home it is not just another anonymous holiday villa but a comfortably furnished home full of paintings and antiques. One of the sitting rooms has a log fire and the house has central heating for cooler months. For music lovers, there are plenty of summer concerts (usually chamber music or recitals) in nearby churches: Mass with Gregorian plainsong on Sunday mornings at the Abbey de Thoronet; Opera at Aix-en Provence, Orange and Nice; or jazz at Nice and the nearby villages of Seillans and Montferrat. However, past experience shows that despite the best laid plans to make excursions, most of our guests arrive only to find they prefer to stay put at Le Lauron.
There are plenty of poolside sun loungers, two further separate outside dining areas, and a large parasol also available. There is a boule and croquet set, and the house has some tennis and badminton racquets that could certainly be used in an emergency!
The property is cleaned two times a week. Bed linen and bathroom towels are included and changed once a week.

The views are simply stunning. The house secluded but not too remote. The village is a 12 minute walk. The accommodation is particularly suitable for families.

There is a trampoline with a net on one of the terraces. For the adults there is boule, croquet and an impressive library of books. For the musical there is the piano and for the sporty the tennis court and trampoline.
Leading off the kitchen is a superb vine and wisteria covered pergola which shelters a large granite table which seats 10 comfortably around which meals are usually eaten in fine weather and from which the wonderful scenery can be enjoyed. A beautiful old fig tree outside the house provides further shade and delicious figs in season. Herbs are also grown near the house close to the kitchen....moreless

Bargemon, 500 metres above sea level, is one of the prettiest villages in the area; it is never crowded or as trippery as villages on or near the coast. Life revolves around the ‘Place’ where, if you sit with your coffee or Pastis, you will get a kaleidoscope of life in Provence. Bargemon has shops for all everyday needs; The nearest town is Draguignan where a bustling and attractive market is held.
Fishing and boating at Lac de St. Cassien (28km), riding, windsurfing and hang-gliding are all within easy reach, as is magnificent walking country. For the really energetic, a Grande Randonee along the base of the Gorge du Verdon (Europe's largest) or, for those not so energetic, a drive along its spectacular rim is highly recommended. St Tropez and the Mediterranean, as well as local golf courses including an excellent championship course at La Motte (15km) are all within 1 hour’s drive. In winter, skiing is possible in the Southern Alps, (Isola 2000: 2 hrs drive, or Greolieres:45 m)
