Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday home in Lorgues

This designers family home comfortably sleeps 12 in 6 double bedrooms.

La Canal is a beautiful large bastide, built in 1760. Its thick walls keep the house cool during the hot summer months. The house has been restored to a high standard, by its designer owner, to give great comfort and space for 12 people. There is a huge terrace in front of the house, shaded by ancient mulberry trees, from which one has splendid views to the distant Maures. You can walk through the mature walled 2 1/2 acre garden and wild flower meadow straight into the village, no driving to all those lovely restaurants! The magnificent 14 metre salt water pool is tucked away in a secluded part of the garden. Ample secure parking is provided with electric gates at the entrance.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only

Wonderful and memorable.

  • 5 out of 5
In June 2014, my family and I enjoyed a wonderful stay in La Canal.
The house is situated within a few minutes walk of Lorgues and yet very private and secluded as it is set back within a large garden and accessed via a gate at the main entrance. The bedrooms are spacious with en suite bathrooms and have been tastefully furnished to a high standard with comfortable beds. The kitchen has everything you could wish, from plenty of utensils to a good selection of crockery. The local shops and weekly market are within walking distance and we enjoyed sitting under the mulberry trees of La Canal enjoying our meals and rose wine. The pool area was delightful with towels provided. Lorgues and nearby villages were delightful with good restaurants.
Nicola, who was at hand nearby, was welcoming, helpful and friendly. During our stay, our son was married in a nearby chateau and what with our stay in La Canal, our holiday was made especially memorable. We hope to return as the rose wine does not taste quite the same in Swansea!

A Magic Place to Stay

  • 5 out of 5
Our group of 12 including family and friends travelled to Lorgue for a week and didn't want to leave. Nicola welcomed us on arrival and we quickly settled into this magnificent old home. The bedrooms were spacious with comfy beds and modern bathrooms. The kitchen was well equipped and there was also a BBQ outdoors. Every morning we had breakfast on the terrace under the mulberry trees. From this peaceful garden surround it was a 5 min walk into the village to enjoy cafes, bakeries, restaurants, bars, specialty shops and on Tuesday a huge market filled the central streets. Our large pool was always popular for a relaxing swim after visiting local wineries or walking in the hills.
I would encourage everyone to find time to enjoy a special holiday here at La Canal

Beautiful La Bastide

  • 5 out of 5
La Bastide is a wonderful house with its own walled grounds and swimming pool. The house is immaculately maintained and Lorgues is within 5-10 minutes walking distance. We have spent several family holidays here and are due to return again next year. The area of the Haut-Var is full of interest - plenty can be accessed by foot or public transport, although a car is probably necessary to explore attractions such as the Gorge de Verdon. I would thoroughly recommend this holiday rental.

A perfect week in La Canal

  • 5 out of 5
We will never forget our first view of La Canal through the beautiful wrought iron gates. The pathway to the house , with its pretty blue shutters and mulberry trees in front. is lined with lavender and the garden is just gorgeous with lavender everywhere -filling the air with its scent when anyone brushes against it. We loved the fact that we had to walk down this path every time we went to the charming town of Lorgues for provisions. What a great find and what a good decision it turned out to be. La Canal was perfect for our needs with six bedrooms and four good bathrooms, a well equipped kitchen, a laundry and even Wi-Fi was available. The kitchen opened onto a very charming area of the garden with plenty of outdoor seating for reading and relaxing. The pool area was very pretty and well maintained, with towels provided by Nicola, lots of recliners, large sun umbrellas and a decent sized salt water pool. No chlorine! It was secluded and separated from the main garden by an attractive stone wall. There was a table tennis for the energetic and an outdoor fridge and BBQ which was very handy.
We had great fun buying the local produce and cooking up a storm in the kitchen and had a marvellous day at the famous Tuesday market in Lorgues where everything from clothes to food was sold. We dined at La Canal every night under the mulberry trees – and could not even tear ourselves away for just one night! The food we prepared each evening was so superb that we even cancelled a booking that we had made at a Michelin starred restaurant in Lorgues!! We knew that nothing could compare to the beautiful setting, ambience and food at La Canal.

The week flew by with lazy hours by the lovely pool area or under the shade of the mulberry trees in one of the comfy garden chairs. There was plenty of space for everyone, inside and out and not once did we feel we ‘needed to get away’ for a bit of peace and quiet! We went for walks to beautiful Chateau de Berne and visits to nearby villages and Thoronet Abbey. Another stand out experience was our superb lunch at Florian’s Restaurant (alias Kiss the Chef) in a quiet little corner of Lorgues – don’t miss it!! Not only is the food excellent but Flores and his father are a pleasure to meet!
If you are looking for a relaxing and beautiful place to stay, in an absolutely gorgeous area of France, don’t hesitate. This is it! We are returning and can’t wait. Thank you Nicola, for a wonderful holiday.

Beautiful house and garden in superb location

  • 5 out of 5
We were six couples in the sixties who had a wonderful week in La Canal in Lorgues. When we arrived we were greeted at the gate of a very nice lady (Nicola) who welcomed us to La Canal.
We had hired two buses, and road into La Canal was just as broad as it had to be. When we had parked the cars and the baggage was in the house, Nicola gave us a full briefing on all facilities in the house. It was according to the description.
The kitchen had all the equipment we could wish for and everything was clean and well maintained.
The bedrooms were large and beds comfort. Everything about the house met or exceeded our expectations.
Outdoor facilities are still the best. Great pool with furniture and cushions, outdoor dining furniture, BBC, garden, mulberry trees with ripe fruit, everything was great.
La Canal is a great place if you want to explore the beautiful Provence or enjoy your time in peaceful surroundings.
We would highly recommend La Canal as a place to stay for a week or more.

Delightful holiday home

  • 5 out of 5
This was a fantastic place to stay for our short holiday. We stayed for four nights and wished we could have stayed longer!

A group of 10 of us stayed at La Canal in September. It is on the doorstep of a charming village. Set in large grounds, you feel you are in the middle of the countryside, yet within 10 minutes you are in the heart of the village.

Nicola was there to make sure everything we needed was provided for and to recommend restaurants and attractions, but for the most part we felt we had the amazing house to ourselves.

The house itself is gorgeous. Inside, it is comfortable, clean and well maintained. The rooms are spacious, the beds are comfy. The kitchen has everything you need to cook up a feast. But the best part of the house is the outdoor facilities... gorgeous pool, BBQ, outdoor dining furniture, poolside loungers + cushions, even table tennis!

We would highly recommend La Canel as a place to stay for a week, a month...or more
