THE PROPERTY

Le Mas du Real Laugier rests on a small promontory — an easy 1.2 km walk (0.75 miles) to the village center. During the 19th Century, our home was part of the “Train des Pignes” railway system. The street address is still the “Chemin du Train des Pignes Ouest,” indicating these fascinating origins.

”Mas” means Provençal farmhouse or country house, and that suits this gracious and generous 2,400-sq. ft. stone house on three levels.

The rez-de-jardin (garden floor) features a bedroom with double bed, bath with walk-in shower and separate toilet, along with the laundry room and a wine cave.

The rez-de-chaussée (ground floor) includes the kitchen, living area, fireplace and a dining area. Also on this floor is the spacious, high-ceilinged master bedroom with king bed, traditional stone walls and en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower and separate toilet. French doors open to the front garden from the bedroom and the dining area.

The premier étage (2nd floor) offers two bedrooms and a roomy landing, which holds a small office and an antique iron daybed — ideal sleeping for one. The first bright-and-airy bedroom has two twin beds and a view of the gardens and pool area below. In the second bedroom, a sleeper sofa unfolds into a cozy double bed. The large full bath, with toilet, tub and shower wand, features hand-made ceramic tile from the village of Salaries.

Two large outdoor tables each seat 8-10. There's a BBQ, plus outdoor buffet. A short stone walkway leads to the glorious heated pool and pool house.

By car, we are about an hour from St. Tropez, an hour and 15 minutes from Nice and 90 minutes from Marseilles. It is only a 20-minute drive from Lorgues to the Gare Les Arcs-Draguignan, where you can catch the TGV express train to Paris.

ABOUT LORGUES

Welcome to the perfect jumping-off point for your adventures in Provence. "This is the Provençal heartland of old villages in summer dress, of huge blue skies, herb aromas and old chaps playing boules late into the evening," said an admiring travel writer of Lorgues.

Colorful houses line its narrow, winding streets, where you'll encounter ancient stairways, stone carvings and 12th-century towers, along with centuries-old plane trees. You'll also find lively cafes, bars and shops and a bustling farmer's market.

Vineyards and olive groves surround the village. The area affords many opportunities for horse riding, hiking, bicycling, canoeing and sampling local wines. You'll find a few of our favorite day trips in our guest guide.

About Linda Warren-Greco

Linda and Gianluca had a dream — to someday own a special property in the South of France, a place that could embody the enchantment and beauty of the Provence region they love. And then to share that home with others.

Linda is a talented graphic designer and artist who brings her fine eye to the graceful interiors of Le Mas du Real Laugier. An avid reader and musician (piano and French horn), she has made sure there are plenty of spaces in the home to lounge, to read, to dream. And, as a former student of pâtisserie at l’École Ritz Escoffier in Paris, she maintains her love of French pastry.

Gianluca, who works in corporate and entertainment law, is a tech enthusiast. Born in Rome, Italy, he spent his childhood in Italy, France, Quebec and Guadalupe. He's an expert home brewer of craft beers and a history buff. He's always building something (a boat, a bike) or learning something new. He watches over Le Mas du Real Laugier's technology needs, among other tasks.

Between them, Linda and Gianluca speak English, French, Spanish and Italian. They love to talk about their Provence home, the quartier (neighborhood) and region.

Gorgeous & peaceful, it will restore your spirit

  • 5 of 5

Le Mas du Real Laugier is so beautiful -- it looks just like its photos! --from its shimmering pool and towering trees to its thoughtfully furnished interiors. I loved that the house gave us so many ways to either gather together or to be alone. There are multiple outdoor dining possibilities, for many of us or just a few. Mornings I had my first café au lait at the charming table for two on the front porch. Then I'd retire to the swing chair for some serious contemplation.

The property is beautifully maintained -- the owners clearly care about the details. And it's so quiet! You feel away from it all, but you're really only a few minutes from Lorgues. We loved Old Town and the Tuesday Market, then going back the next day to sample all the shops and restaurants. (Be sure to try Chez Flo and Le Chris Sandier.) Lorgues is a perfect jumping off point to explore other villages and local wineries. For us, a highlight was the sculpture park at Commanderie de Peyarossol. But, really, you may not want to leave home base. Grab a ping-pong paddle and hang out by the pool. Thank you, Linda and Gianluca, for being such wonderful, responsive hosts. À la prochaine. Until next time!

A little bit of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our party consisted of family members, 8 of us in all, from my 91 year old mum to my 1 year old grandson. My daughter was to be a bridesmaid for a friend at the local chateau and as none of us visited the south of France before, it seemed an ideal opportunity to have a family holiday.

I chose La Mas because it looked so beautiful, was the right size for us, has a swimming pool and is near the wedding venue. It was a well considered decision and I got it very right. The house is perfect. It is well furnished, comfortable and has everything you need for an easy and welcoming stay. Everyone was happy with their room and I loved the kitchen, it was so french. The gardens are lovely and there are many areas to sit and while the time away in the sun. I love to swim and the pool was there invitingly every day. The pool house is a real bonus as there is useful shelter there for babies and grandmas so that they can stay with the action but be protected from the very hot sun. In the evenings we sat on the porch, drank wine, played cards or just talked into the night. The dining table is huge and accommodated all of us. My teenage grandson appreciated the wi-fi.

We didn't spend much time visiting local attractions and I would love to return to this area to do just that some time in the future. Our week flew by and we are back in rainy England now, but the real treat of staying in such a lovely place will stay with me for a long time.

The area is lovely, the house and grounds are lovely and my correspondence with the owner has been a real pleasure. There is a lovely manager in France who is on call in case she is needed and there is a real element of care and attention to detail with this property. I would recommend it to anyone who would appreciate it and take good care of it.

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful

  • 5 of 5

One can hardly ask for more than Le Mas du Real Logier offers. If you are looking for a serene spot as a personal retreat; if you are looking for a lively spot for a family reunion or an office gathering; if you are looking for a charming spot for a destination wedding - inside & out, this property is perfect! It is flexible enough to accommodate all of these adventures & more! If you fancy an easy walk or bicycle ride, the handsome ancient town of Lorgues is just over a kilometer away. It offers amazing sights around every corner. Lorgues hosts fabulous street markets that will fulfill all your shopping dreams! While in the village, I suggest trying any/all of the local Var Rose wines the region is famous for. Lorgues is centrally located in Provence, therefore day trips to Nice, Cannes, St Tropez, Draguignan, Aix-en-Provence, Marseille (to name a few) are easily achieved by car or train. Le Mas du Real Logier is tailor-made for your next sojourn to France - I can't recommend it enough!!!

A magical week in Provence

  • 5 of 5

A stay at Le Mas du Real Logier conjures visions of storybook Provence. This was my first visit to the south of France and the experience surpassed my imagination. The buildings and businesses in the town of Lorgues are untouched by time, yet the shopping, street market, cafes and amenities are plentiful and unique. One gets the impression that the villagers love their community and readily welcome visitors to share their world.

The location of this vacation home is perfect; close to town for that all important purchase of fresh morning pastry yet secluded and quiet enough in it’s country setting to relax and decompress. There are easy and plentiful excursions by car or train to the coast, wineries or diverse nearby communities. At Le Mas itself, the grounds are gorgeous! Unlike many surrounding villas, there is old growth landscaping that has been perfectly maintained with so many nooks to discover. Families can enjoy gathering at two large outdoor dining areas or the lovely pool with shaded pool house. The charming patio, outdoor fire pit or time in the perfectly placed hammock enhance a carefree solitary mood. Beautiful, quality linens and interior touches throughout the home are authentic French cottage and augment the overall fantasy of the perfect Provence holiday. Thank you so much Linda and Gianluca; your attention to detail made my stay absolutely magical.

Le Mas du Real Logier exceeded our expectations

The property is very well equipped and comfortable. It was an ideal base to attend a family wedding in Lorgues. The local property manager was friendly, helpful and efficient. The booking process and contacts with the owner were effective, welcoming and expedient.

The Epitome of Living in Provence

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the first vacations that I have had in a long time where I truly felt "on vacation". This 100 year old "Mas" is a beauty in herself; exactly as I would picture the perfect Provencal house. There is such a sense of owner pride and special touches everywhere. So thoughtfully appointed and comfort galore! Mornings were spent sipping espresso and eating perfect "pain au chocolat"; lunch might be sitting in the pool house with cheese, baguette, charcuterie and the lovely Rose wine of the region. Evenings were spent in the village of Lorgues in one of the great cafes or at the Bistro at Chateau Berne, a vineyard 10 minutes away. The Tuesday "marche" in Lorgues was fantastic. Visiting other picturesque villages, very close by, is a must. Just over an hour's drive from the Nice Airport, the location could not have been better. I have barely been back but can't wait to go again. Everything about this home and the area is outstanding. Thank you Linda and Gianluca!!!
