Villa paradise in center region Var, Le Thoronet
Review Submitted: 06 August 2009
Date of Stay: July 2009
We had a wonderfull time in the villa, 14 days, using the beautiful river a lot in the hot midday, and the pool at all other times.
your house were perfect for the size of our company of 9, and it is truly a paradise spot you found there.
the kithcen is perfect size, and yes we used it every second day.
We had a super experience with the bigger children,
+5 yrs, renting kayaks, at the road between Carces and Lorgue, 4 hours and 8 km of fun in beautiful surroundings, ending up at a landingplace near Le Thoronet, where you could swim and cool of, untill being collected and returned together with the kayaks, to starting point collecting our
we can highly recommend the local restaurants, as we found "le vallon" and the little one by the square in center of "le thoronet" having a standard we didn't expect to find, and at cheap prises as well. 170 euros all in for, 9 people.
We sadly never found the time to try the creperie in center town, we only thought of it as making deserts, untill 3 days before leaving.
we also visited your local domaine l'abbey, visiting the cave, winecellar, original from 1250, small but exciting and wonderful, and the very french guide sold us but to much, wine and oil.
Their "grand reserve" was very well worth the price,
giving a little hint, buy it in town, by the butcher or by caeur du var shop, as they are much cheaper than buying it on the "chateau"
we visited the sorrounding villages, and found the market at Lorgue, being the best, but with expensive restaurants.
The evening markets at frejus/st. raphael were a treat for the whole family, as the little ones could try the "tivoli" things. We dined at a brasserie by the harbour, wonderful meal, and cheap as well, 60 euros less than in Lorgue.
again very much thank you for having us, we will be back, travelling otherwise, 26 hrs from denmark, without a sleepover is to much, but will be back for sure.
