About the Owner
The property is owned by David and Debra. We have spent many wonderful family holidays in Lorgues and decided to buy our own home there in 2007.
The house is 200 years old and when we bought it was in need of renovation but we saw that it had fantastic potential and have worked with local professionals to restore it, retaining its original charm and many of the original features.
We are sure that you will love the house and the surrounding area as much as we do. Please get in touch with us by email if you need any further information.
Regards David and Debbie

Summer 2016 Lorgues
Wow! What a stunning find this was. The pictures do not do this beautiful villa justice. We have just returned from 2 of the most relaxing weeks. The villa is finished to the highest of standards, with plenty of furniture inside and out. The pool was a very welcome escape from the glorious sunshine. We loved Lorgues, the Tuesday market was excellent, the choice of restaurants wonderful and all good. We were lucky to be there in festival season so also benefited from live evening entertainment at the weekends as well as a night market. We visited Monte Carlo, Tourtour (the village in the sky), Aix en Provence, Grand Canyon Du Verdon as well as a couple of Vineyards....Chateau De Berne a must! A perfect family holiday destination for all. Thank you Debbie & David for sharing your home and making everything so easy.
Fabulous property in a superb location!
We had a wonderful 2 week holiday and the farmhouse was perfect. The house has been renovated in a real rustic French style to a very high standard which we loved. The views from the outdoor dining area are fabulous which we enjoyed every breakfast, lunch and evening. The pool was great and much needed to cool from the beautiful Provence weather, though there was excellent protection from the sun using the many sunbeds and parasols - just relax and read a book or listen to music whilst enjoying a beer!
Finally, the property is located perfectly for excursions to Nice, Cannes, St Tropez or the Provence National Park.
Would absolutely recommend if you want to simply relax or explore Provence.
Wonderful Week in Provence
This is a really great property that has been tastefully renovated and updated by the current owners. My children are 8 and 4 so sightseeing is mostly a drag for them and so the property and especially the pool have got to be good as we will be spending a lot of time there. Both ticked all the boxes. We lazily whiled away the long, hot, Provence summer days by the side of the lovely pool. We lunched on the terrace with beautiful views over the valley and ate dinner in nearby restaurants. We didn't see any vineyards and only went to Lorgues for dinner. It was absolute bliss.
Beautifully Reatored Farmhouse
This farmhouse has been beautifully renovated and very tastefully furnished by the owners, the photo album with the before and during renovation photos were very interesting. It has everything anyone requires for a relaxing holiday. Property description is spot on, lovely pool and plenty of outdoor furniture and places to sit and relax. Very clean and well maintained. We travelled as two couples and the bedroom / bathroom facilities and layout were ideal for us. All our dining was done al fresco on the large terrace. Apart from a couple of days we didn't leave the farmhouse and made good use of the pool which was a godsend as temperatures were in the mid thirties most days. The whole process from booking to our departure was handled in a very friendly and professional manner, excellent customer service. I would definitely recommend this property to others and would stay here again. Gorges du Verdon and lac de Sainte Croix are well worth a visit as well as Lorgues market on Tuesdays.
This villa ticks every box and then some. It's located in a lovely, peaceful spot with plenty of well laid out outdoor space to enjoy but only a short drive into town. It has been decorated and equipped to a very high standard throughout and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay. This one is a gem.
What a wonderful old, yet beautifully renovated property to base yourself whilst visiting en Provence. I felt really quite privileged that the owners opened up their home to guests. It has all those homely luxuries, including little thoughtful gifts from the owners. Spotlessly clean, modern provincial decor/furnishing, very comfortable, everything you need. Some days we just 'stayed home' enjoying the pool, sunshine, garden and el fresco dining on the terrace.
A perfect base for visiting many of the small historic and beautiful villages/towns in the area. Lorgues itself has great dining, markets, bars, cafes, oh and not forgetting the artisan patisserie - way too many calories bought there! And only an hour to the coastal French Riviera. Perfect house, perfect location! Gets 7 stars for me - I will definately use this property for my next visit.
