We found the house itself welcoming and cool in the heat of July. The pool is lovely and very well maintained. The kitchen is well equipped and we enjoyed BBQs in the garden before a cooling dip. The location of the property is perfect. It really is just on the edge of town and easy walking distance to shops, bars and restaurants. Lorgues is a small town with a great food market and a good selection of restaurants. Hedda was responsive and helpful at all times. We will be back!

                                                                                                      Property is ideal for a secluded and peaceful break. Very thick walls keep it cool in the evenings and has a wood stove we used on several occasions. We intended to use it as a base to explore the region, but due to the beds being too comfortable we did have trouble getting out in the early mornings. You do drive past the owners house on the track leading to the property (unseen from the cottage), and we didn't realise they lived there until the last day, as you are left in total privacy. The description & photographs of the property are spot on and has recently been refurbished, so I do not need to elaborate with further details, it also has a good wifi network, which was surprising given its remoteness. The route from town is along the old railway line, and is a popular cycle highway, a bonus as 2 bikes are supplied as well. You are not more than an hour and a half from the silver beaches & secluded bays, which were empty in the last week of Sept, you come out of the sea looking as if you have been to a glitter party or the Verdon Gorge to the north. Strongly recommend getting the Michelin Tourist Map 1cm=1km, as it gives star ratings to all the local villages worth visiting within 30-40 mins, we were visiting 2-3 a day, and we still didn't get to do everything we wanted to do within the week.
