About the Owner

We are Tessa and David Nelson, we met when David was a captain on the boats and I was a chef on a sailing yacht. David is now a carpenter and I am an artist and a chef. We both grew up in England although David has lived here since he was 19 and I have lived abroad for most of my adult life.

We love it here and have a small boat we go out on, and when David's son Jack is with us we go canyoning, kayaking, canoeing and all sorts, there is so much to do here. I am currently teaching water colour classes and painting trips in provence.

If you would like to know more about the Water Colour Trips please visit my site: www.paint-provence.com. Or if you would like cooking or art lessons on your stay here let me know and we can organise something.

Perfect chill out.

  • 4 of 5

This was a perfect place for our little family to relax and absorb the beautiful area around Lorgues.

We had a range of activities at our disposal from excellent local restaurants, gorgeous villages and towns, exploring the Verdun.

It was the hospitality of Tess and David that really set this place a part. Caring and considerate, incredibly relaxing and calming nature of both helped us to enjoy this apartment even more. It is small, with good facilities that are perfect for a small family or couple.

We loved staying there and will go back to see the area, David and Tess next year.

Thank you.

Location

From the Owner

This is an unique independent apartment full of country charm, friendly, our property is unspoiled the original provencal building, I think this is why we love it so much, it is authentic and endearing. The nearby views of endless hills and mountains are breathtaking. We live near to the beautiful river Argens which is delicious to swim in in the heat of the summer or go canoeing for the day on with a picnic. We are only 40 minutes drive from the spectacular Gorges du Verdun, and as I am an artist and painting outside is my favourite thing to do, fields of lavender, poppies and summer promise are my idea of pure bliss, not to mention the fabulous produce you can get in the markets. Fresh costs cheese and plump tomatoes with basil and local olives. Olive groves all around for that matter, delicious local olive oil. Fabulous vineyards and wine tastings. I fell in love with this area in 1985 when I first came to the South of France and here we are still.

Notes:

  • This apartment will be ideal for those of you who are wanting to hike, bike, do sports and explore the area, it is charming and comfortable and away from noise. The village is within walking and biking distance (4kms.) as is the river, the wine Chateaux's are close by. It is well furnished. We like the quiet so also ideal for like minded people.
