Space 2,690 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

This private building is located on a 2-hectare agricultural plot with full view

Nestled on a charming estate with a hectare of PDO Provence vineyards and an olive grove with 100 trees, this dwelling with its three suites, its children's bedroom, and a stone bathroom can sleep 8 adults or 6 adults and 4 children.

The rooms, as much inside with the open plan living room with eat-in kitchen, as outside with the pergola, covered terrace, and grill area with a trampoline, are a peaceful and private haven. There is no way to see into this private property from the street..

For your athletic activities, there is a boules field, a trampoline, badminton rackets, and a basketball net,

You can walk among fig trees, persimmon trees, irises, and rose bushes.

As a welcome gift, we include a taste of our own products: bottles of champagne (we are producers in Damery), PDO Provencal red wine from our cooperative (Cellier des Lorguians), and a bottle of olive oil pressed in the Lorgues mill.

The stone swimming pool is in the style of the Provencal basins, with clear waters and its fountain with a small basin, and its poolside bar.

Its name, Bodhi, a word liked with Buddhism, is a good representation of the place and its Zen ambiance that invites you to relax.

Lorgues is a Provencal village with a rich past, framed by two rivers. It is one of the hidden treasures of Provence. Ideally located, half way between the Verdon Gorge and the Gulf of Saint-Tropez, you will have an ample choice of activities.

Once owners, producers, and wine makers in Champagne, we have fulfilled our dream of purchasing a small estate in Provence. As we had already participated in wine tourism with a guesthouse, wine cellar tours with tastings, and visits to the vineyards and wine cellars, we have experience in how to combine tourism and wine. We hope that you enjoy your stay on this estate and savour some of our own wines as well as our new olive oil products.

What makes this cottage unique

A peaceful view from a stunning and unique construction features a pool matching the surrounding terrace in the style of a Provencal basin. Complementing the relaxing atmosphere, two of our bedrooms are equipped with memory foam mattresses. The satin cotton sheets and our 90 x 200 cm beds in each room will ensure a good night's sleep. This estate, we hope, will allow you to forget the stresses of your busy lives.

Owner's Response: Je vous remercie pour votre sympathie. A cette saison les iris sont en fleurs, c'est agréable de se promener dans le domaine. Nos toiles près de la piscine sont installées, un peu d'ombrage pour des repos bien mérités. La vue et le calme qui règne à Bodhi sont très appréciés par tous.

Séjour à l'ascension avec température estivale

  • 5 of 5

Super séjour dans cette magnifique propriété au calme à quelques minutes de la charmante ville de Lorgues. La maison est très belle, très confortable et très bien équipée à l'extérieur comme à l'intérieur. Seul bémol peut-être compte tenu de la température le manque d'un ou deux parasols aux abords de la piscine en dépit de la présence d'une toile de tente finalement peu satisfaisante. Pour le reste, nous avons eu beaucoup de plaisir tant dans la propriété que lors de balades aux alentours (Lorgues, Tourtour, etc). Dans le désordre ... literie impeccable, piscine chaude, complet matériel enfant pour la maison à disposition (y compris un baby cook), proches des commodités et des sites touristiques, accueil très chaleureux, service de conciergerie professionnel et sympathique et pour couronner le tout absence de moustiques (toutes les chambres ont des moustiquaires). Merci encore à la famille Blaise et à leur concierge.

Owner's Response: Je vous remercie de votre gentillesse, vous êtes des personnes très agréables. La toile près de la piscine est une solution provisoire qui ne tient pas au vent fort du sud et qui doit donc être retirée régulièrement. Vous avez raison, des parasols seraient plus simples. Je vais acheter deux parasols en attendant des travaux plus importants avec le projet de mettre une pergola fixe aux abords de la piscine. Mais je cherche encore la pergola idéale. Nous avons de la chance d'avoir Monsieur Villaverde, La Conciergerie Lorguaise, très professionnel. Merci à vous et peut-être à une prochaine fois sur Lorgues.
