Wonderful house in peaceful setting
The villa is immaculate and the description and photos are very accurate. It is in a lovely domaine of a few other houses but very private and feels secure behind the electric gate. It was spacious and airy and we ate all our meals outside where there is shade at all times if you want it.
We swam in the beautiful pool, we played tennis on the domaine court as well as boules and we sat and read books in the well maintained garden.
The nearby village of Lorgues is a short drive away and definetly worth a visit especially on market day (Tuesday) - lots of bars and restaurants there. Another village nearby worth a visit was Cotignac - picture perfect village with loads of restaurants plus locally numerous vineyards serving exquisite rose wine!
The area is pure provence verte with olives and vineyards and lavender. We had to visit both Nice and Marseilles airport during our stay and both about an hour away so very well connected too.
I would thoroughly recommend this property - we are fussy travellers and like firm beds and clean houses and this villa ticked all of the boxes and more.
We would definetly return to the house.
Fantastic villa, great location, helpful owner
A fantastic property that is exactly as it appears in the photos. The villa is lovely, with a high standard of furnishing and decoration and the grounds are excellent - well maintained and with a wonderful view, particularly from the double doors in the master bedroom. The surrounding area is abound with pretty vineyards (we recommend a trip to Chateaux Berne just a short car journey away) and is within easy reach of the coast, as well as the beautiful Provencal countryside (Gorge du Verdon and Tourtour are also well worth a visit). The nearby village of Lorgues is very nice and has a large market on Tuesdays that should certainly be explored. The house is well equipped for families, with a large pool (alarmed), boule and communal tennis court. There are only three properties in the small close, all with their own private space and they are behind electronic gates, so very peaceful and secure. The owner was very helpful, accommodating and supportive throughout the process, from booking and arrival, to questions during our stay - even to the extent of providing much appreciated reassurance when we had to visit the local doctor for our 1yr old son, who fell ill during the first week. Illness and some unfortunate weather aside, we had a great couple of weeks and would certainly recommend this property to friends and family - hopefully we will be fortunate enough to visit again ourselves in the future.
