Description

ONZE MAISON LORGUES - Lorgues - 230 m2, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms - Sleeps 11 (max 2 babies) - Village 3 km - Detached villa, private pool - Shady terraces, sunny garden - Air conditioning in bedrooms - Summer kitchen, poolside bed Onze Maison in Lorgues is your picture-perfect Provencale villa - soft pink walls, terracotta tiles, shady terraces and an azure pool. But there is so much more to this hill-top home than you can even dream of - the accent is very much on outdoor living, and the 100m terrace has a fully-fitted summer kitchen complete with a brick-built barbecue. There's another terrace on other side of the villa which catches the morning sun, making it perfect for a leisurely breakfast, and if you fancy an evening cocktail, why not relax on one of the sun loungers or the four-poster pool-side bed. The villa is just a five-minute (4. 5km) drive from the pretty town of Lorgues, where you'll find a good selection of bars, restaurants and shops around a traditional square, and there's a bustling market packed with tempting local produce on Tuesdays and Fridays. The Dutch owners of Onze Maison Lorgues chose the name because the word onze means "our" in Dutch, and it's very apparent that this is a much-loved home. Sleeping 11, there are two double bedrooms on the ground floor, both of which are en suite and overlook the pool - one of the bedrooms also has a single bed. The other ground floor bedroom at the other end of the house has a single bed with a further pull-out single bed beneath. Upstairs there are two more double bedrooms, both with tvs and dvd players, and a bathroom, as well as a large but cosy galleried sitting area with satellite TV, dvd player etc. Looking at the elegant living room with its huge fireplace and wrought-iron sweeping staircase, it's hard to believe the villa is less than 30 years old. Warm earthy colours combined with wood, iron and ceramic tiles mean Onze Maison Lorgues sits comfortably in its beautiful surroundings. The large kitchen has everything you need to cook for a crowd and then as soon as the weather turns warmer, the well-equipped summer kitchen and barbecue on the terrace come into their own, with a huge fridge perfect for keeping the drinks cold! You'll want to be outside by the pool most of the time, You'll also find an unusal open air shower room out here. It's enclosed on three sides and screened from the garden with plants - perfect for rinsing off after a dip in the saltwater pool. ABOUT THE AREA The hustle and bustle of St Tropez and the French Riviera are just an hour from Onze Maison Lorgues, but we're sure you'll love the quieter pace of life that you'll find in the villages around this beautiful villa. If you ever get bored of sitting around the pool or exploring the beautiful gardens, a short drive will take you into the heart of wine country. The surrounding area is dotted with wine chateaux - just follow the signs on the side of the roads for a tasting. The village of Villecroze (15 min drive) in the foothills of the Alps is home to some impressive caves which were fortified in the 19th century, and medieval Tourtour, just a little further on, is said to be one of France's most beautiful villages. Children of all ages will enjoy the treetop rope trail at L'Arnaude Aventures in Lorgues and adults looking for a little peace and quiet can find it at the Abbaye du Thoronet, a partly restored Cistercian monastery. There are plenty of restaurants within a short drive of Onze Maison Lorgues, but for a special occasion head for the Michelin-starred Chez Bruno, just 10 minutes away, which specialises in truffles. For dramatic scenery head to the Verdon Gorge - France's very own grand canyon! It's about an hour's drive to this stunning river canyon, which is about 25km long and about 700m deep. For great views, lunch at the Hotel Grand Canyon du Verdon. Aix-en-Provence, the birthplace of Cezanne, is an hour west of Onze Maison Lorgues - visit his studio, stroll down the Cours Mirabeau or take a guided tour of the historic city. In Toulon enjoy lunch at the harbour, take the telepherique to the top of Mont Faron for the best views (there's a zoo at the top too), or discover the open-air market at Cours Lafayette. Information about the swimming pool: our pool is salted water. It is not heated so only available from early April to late October. In summer, depending on the weather, water temperature can rise up to 29°C. A floating alarm device has been installed for safety. Each guest is provided with a pool/bath towel and a hand towel. The 10th and 11th beds: Please note one of the ground floor bedrooms is accessible from the garden terrace or from the garage, and is slightly apart from the other bedrooms. If you prefer to be nearer to the other guests you can instead ask the manager to set up the bed settee in the TV room. We have a new good quality mattress (160cm x 200cm) and bedding, there is storage space for clothing, suitcases etc next to the TV room, and also you will be close to an independent wc and a bathroom which also serve the other two double bedrooms in that part of the house).
