Guestbook comments from the owner
My girls (17 and 12) and I had a fantastic holiday in the lovely town of Lorgues. They particularly loved the swimming pool and sun bathing; I enjoyed the peace and quiet. The villa has all the comforts of home and is in an idyllic spot, great to come back after our daily excursions. We drove to Frejus/St Raphael/St Tropez/Monaco/Cannes, making this central location unbeatable. Michael and Gail have a wealth of knowledge about the region and have provided guest information to make the best use of the area and days out.
Lorgues itself has a lot to offer with Market day, a great choice of restaurants, and the historic centre, there are also supermarkets, post office, bakeries and much more.
A brilliant, memorable holiday, we all hope to return.
