Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Lorgues

5 Bedroom house, sleeps 11 maximum or 2 bedroom garden apartment sleeps 5 max

Stunning olive mill, built in 1764, sensitively restored & converted recently by the architect owner into a well appointed, spacious & comfortable house. Sleeps 11 people, perfect for 2 families, as there are 2 kitchens! Also possible to rent one wing as a garden apartment for 5 people. The large 12x6m. heated salt water pool is set within a delightful walled courtyard garden, with a selection of terraces & lawns for al-fresco eating, sunbathing, games & relaxing. Electric gates give access to the house, secure parking & the secluded half acre garden which includes a wildflower meadow. A peaceful location to get away from it all, yet only a couple of minutes' stroll into the centre of Lorgues with its famous market, shops & range of restaurants. The mill enjoys wonderful views over the village to the Maures mountains. This beautiful area is set between the mountains & the Mediterranean sea - perfect for touring. There are many historic villages & famous Provencal vineyards close by.

Access to the house: The main auto route, the A8, is just 20 minutes away so Nice, Cannes, Aix en Provence, are all about an hour's drive. Monaco and Italy are an easy day's outing or you could take a trip to Corsica by ferry from Nice. Toulon-Hyeres, also an hour's drive to our house, is a hassle-free provincial airport served by Ryanair, or alternatively fly into Nice with a wide choice of airlines. The SNCF railway station at Les Arcs, which is 15 minutes from the house, provides fast connections to Paris (TGV 5 hours). If you prefer there is an overnight Motor rail service from Calais/Lille to Nice allowing you to bring your own car and let the train take the strain!

Lorgues facts: Lorgues is a town of just under 10,000 inhabitants, built up around a walled medieval core. Built on a south-facing hillside, ‘a village perché’, it is dominated by an enormous and imposing church – la Collégiale St. Martin – very visible, as you get close!

The town dates from the 10th century, and has an intriguing history in relation to the Crusaders. The church was built in the 15th century. The narrow streets of the old village, enclosed by crumbling walls, and some beautiful towers, are worth exploring; especially as there are fountains and interesting old buildings dotted around. The main street, a rather grand tree lined boulevard, Boulevard Georges Clémenceau, is modelled on the Cours Mirabeau in Aix-en-Provence. Plenty of cafés, bars and restaurants there to relax in

Our olive mill was one of 6 on this street, located to use the water from the open culvert(La Canal) which ran down the street.

Shopping and restaurants: Shopping: There are markets at Lorgues (Tues), Aups (Wed & Sat), & Salernes (Sun) and a very large Sunday Provencal market at Le Muy by the auto route (A8). The two nearest Carrefour hypermarkets are at Draguignan & Trans en Provence. Smaller supermarkets (Intermrche and Casino) are open on Sunday mornings in Lorgues, and most of the surrounding villages. Draguignan, the former capital of the Var, with its impressive county hall, provides a rich variety of individual shops, where you can buy clothes, handmade chocolates, pastries, and gifts. There is also a theatre, cinema, ten pin bowling and visiting funfairs. All the surrounding villages have a number of restaurants, serving primarily French cuisine. From the renowned Michelin-starred truffle restaurant Chez Bruno near Lorgues, to family-run French restaurants all offering 'le menu' or a la carte. For a change there are Chinese restaurants and pizza takeaways

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 out of 5
Lorgues is a great little town with plenty of restaurants and a nice market with good but expensive produce. It's well placed for excursions to the mountains and the coast alike.

The owners have gathered together lots of information for days out. We took their advice and headed into the hills on a really hot afternoon to the little hilltop village to the north which is both cool and spectactular.

A car is essential. The entrance from the main road is quite tight but you do get used to it.

The owners proudly showed us the main house which is huge and beautifully re-furbished. We had the apartment which is lovely too and by no means second best. It's really nicely furnished with a mix of simple contemporary pieces and some local market bargains. The open plan living/dining/kitchen space with views in 3 directions makes for convivial, lively atmosphere. There are books to read and lots of games provided for the odd dull day - not that there's many of those.

The kids had lots of space in their twin room and and although the double bedroom isn't that spacious there is a large wardrobe/store opposite the door.

Outside there are several discrete areas of garden and terrace to sit in at diferent times of the day. The pool is lovely, large and clean. It's too deep for our kids to touch the bottom which was a worry at first but by the end of the week they were both swimming without armbands.

We had a truly fantastic holiday and will be back - in fact we've already booked it for 2010

Owner's Response: Lorgues certainly is a great centre for day trips inland and to the coast, but is lively enough itself, particularly on market day, with plenty of bars and restaurants. For a family of 4 or 5, the garden apartment is ideal, but for a bigger party, or 2 families, consider renting the whole house! One big asset is the location, which is very near the centre of the town, but the views out are almost rural. We hope to cultivate more of the 2200 sq.m. garden before next season, in addition to the garden and courtyard which Jon describes above.

Lovely Lorgues

  • 5 out of 5
It was our second visit to this wonderful property in charming Lorgues and I can confirm that the property does live up to the promise provided by the website photos. Our party of five stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment. Our younger family members who are aged 10, 9 & 4 spent plenty of hours in the manicured garden/pool area. The Moulin is superbly appointed within close proximity to the town. The location cannot be underestimated as it is wonderful being able to stroll to the village for bread, coffee, food etc.

Gill, Alan & Luce are delightful to deal with.

Would we return? – Absolutely.

A second visit to the Moulin in pretty Lorgues

  • 5 out of 5
I have never been back to the same place twice but my family and I returned to the Moulin for a second year running and I know we will be back again for a third time. If you love France then look no further. A gorgeous converted Olive Mill awaits you in the heart of beautiful Lorgues. Each morning we'd meander down to the medieval town and grab a coffee, visit the patisserie, boucherie or supermarche to get the provisions we needed for the day. I love a market and every Tuesday Lorgues is the life and soul of Provence with beautiful stalls. Clothes, bags, shoes, crafts, food..... You name it they have it! We have three kids under five and they loved swimming in the large heated pool. We also made it to the seaside which is only an hour away. You have the best of both worlds and if you don't fancy the sea then there are gorgeous towns/villages to visit. Tour Tour is one of our favourite spots. High up on the hill with spectacular views and local craft shops too. If you love your wine then you are spoilt for choice! There so many vineyards for wine tasting. I would recommend the Moulin to anyone. It never disappoints! Look forward to seeing you next year Gill & Alan.

Great place, great location

  • 5 out of 5
Beautiful place in a beautiful region. We went there with our 3 kids in the summer. I know the region quite well as i was born and I grew there (so, it's true I'm not really objective). The location is very convenient (in the village but very quiet place : you feel like in the countryside). The apartment has been recently totally renovated : it is very clean and comfortable. Amazing swimming pool and garden.

Lorgues is a charming and friendly medieval village with many cafes, shops, bars and restaurants, and a vibrant market every Tuesday morning. It is situated in the heart of Provence about one hour's drive from the airports at Nice or Toulon-Hyeres, and is the 2nd most wooded region in France. Set between the mountains and the Mediterranean Sea and superb for touring, there are many historic villages and famous Provencal vineyards close by. An easy drive brings you to the beaches and lively resorts at Sainte Maxime (complete with Aquapark), Saint Raphael, Port Grimaud and Saint Tropez. Inland amidst breathtaking scenery, the Gorges du Verdon - the French Grand Canyon - and Lake St Croix, the largest lake in Provence, offer swimming, walking, sailing, white water rafting, kayaking and windsurfing. All just 45 minutes away. Other local attractions include the Abbaye du Thoronet, the waterfall at Sillans de Cascade, and the village of Chateaudouble set in stunning mountain scenery.
