The villa is situated down a steep driveway, off a quiet lane, within walking distance from the centre of Lorgues, which has numerous restaurants, 2 supermarkets, many other small shops and a weekly market.
The villa is away from the madding crowds, but within easy reach of the coast. While sitting on the patio of the villa, in a rural setting, you will find it hard to believe how well-located it is! Just 1 km from the market town of Lorgues, only 15 minutes from the A8 motorway, 10 minutes from the mainline SNCF station in Les Arcs, and also conveniently located within 1-1.5 hours from the airports at Nice, Marseille and Toulon/Hyères.
This 4-bedroomed villa (sleeps 8-11) is situated in peaceful terraced gardens, surrounded by mature pines and oak woods.
The villa has a private 4x9m swimming pool, sun terraces, BBQs, loungers and other garden furniture. The owner is not onsite and the renters will have sole use of the villa, gardens and pool.
The house has four bedrooms, a living room with TV and stereo, a dining room, a kitchen with dishwasher and a washing machine, as well as 2 bathrooms and 2 toilets. The bedrooms are furnished with 2 double beds and 4 single beds. There is also a double bed settee in the lounge and a child pull out bed in one of the upstairs bedrooms. So we could accommodate 11 at a pinch, please ask. The spacious ground floor living room has three large French windows, all opening up to an outside patio shaded by an old oak tree. There are also French windows onto the patio in the dining room and the kitchen.
Master Bedroom with en-suite showerroom is downstairs. It features an antique French Oak Double bed, dual side tables & lamps. Step out on to the patio through the double French windows (also found in the living room & Dining Room). The en-suite showerroom features a full-size stand up shower and wash basin. The downstairs toilet is directly to the right, outside the master bedroom.
After a long day of lounging by the pool or shopping in Lorgues or Le Muy markets, unwind in front of our Flat Screen TV (setup to receive UK and French TV) or sip a glass of wine on the Patio. If you prefer to stay indoors, check your email from the comfort of one of our 2 sofas with free Wireless Internet. All ages will stay entertained with a media centre containing hundreds of films and UK TV shows.

Around the side of the house there is parking space for at least 3 or 4 cars.
There are 2 separate stepped pathways up to the pool which is 9m x 4m with a minimum depth of 1.1m and a maximum depth of 2.2m. The pool is on a separate terrace at roughly ‘first floor’ level, which contains another large patio, a traditionally built (stone, wooden roof beams and roof tiles) poolhouse and shaded seating. There are 8 sun loungers, 8 more dining chairs and another table around the pool and poolhouse area.
