About the property

Villa in Lorgues, Var, Provence-Alpes-Cote DAzur, France - Peaceful Location, 5 Minutes To Lorgues, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, brand new kitchen

Mas Dinina is a charming Provencal house set in grounds of over 12 acres – beautiful gardens, restored terraced olive groves, vines and extensive woodland.

It is peacefully secluded, but has the benefit of being only 5 minutes from the popular medieval town of Lorgues with its numerous boulangeries, supermarkets, restaurants and markets. Beautiful shading mulberry trees and plants adorn the tiered terracing outside the house, along with a wonderfully large covered area with an al fresco modular seating area and dining tables that can cater for twenty. On the other side of the house, you can relax in the shade of the large pool house which overlooks the unusually shaped beautiful pool . The house itself has four main bedrooms and an extra walk through children’s bedroom, as well as four bathrooms and a separate loo - making Mas Dinina the perfect place to holiday with family or friends.

***NEW for 2015*** Extended brand new kitchen/dining area, new large beautiful sitting room.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to say what a wonderful holiday we had at Mas Dinina. The house worked so well, it was lovely to stay in a villa that is a real home rather than just a rental. We loved the area too! – Rowena

Thank you for a fabulous time in your lovely home! – David

Charming Provencal House With Private Pool Near Lorgues
average rating of 5.0 based on 4 reviews

Maison de Lorgues is simply fantastic! A beautiful home, in tranquil private grounds.

  • 5 of 5

We are so delighted that we have found this charming French family property, surrounded by olive trees and in a very peaceful location. The house was perfect for our family ranging from 12 - 71 years! We celebrated a 70th birthday whilst staying and it couldn't have been a better house for such an occasion. The outside dining area, patio's and seating areas are just brilliant spaces for relaxing, eating, reading or enjoying a glass of local rosé. The pool is lovely with plenty of space to sit in the sun or cool off in the shade of the open pool house. The house is extremely well equipped and in particular the kitchen, it has everything you would ever need for entertaining. The bedrooms and bathrooms are really lovely, the beds are very comfortable. We loved our time at Maison de Lorgues and can't wait to return. We would recommend a day out at Sainte-Croix du Verdon or Antibes and an evening in Mougins.

A perfect peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

This property works well for either 2 families or a single extended family.

With 4 bathrooms there are no more morning lines and the modernised and very well equipped kitchen makes life easy for the meal preparers.

Lorgues is easy walking distance for those who want to burn off a few calories after enjoying meals at the local restaurants. It is a pretty, small town that has all the amenities one could need including 3 boulangeries and an excellent traiteur in the main street.

The surrounding towns and villages all have their own special feel; we particularly liked Carces with its' amazing trompe l'oeil decorations on the buildings and the way new buildings - maison de retraite and a parking station - have been integrated into the local architecture. There are a lot of towns in the world that could benefit from seeing how it should be done.

Overall this a great property, clean and well managed and with all the facilities you could want.

Wonderful, peaceful villa

  • 5 of 5

It is rare for a holiday rental to live up to, and in most instances, exceed expectations. This villa does!

The bedrooms are perfect for a large group with three rooms en-suite and the other two sharing a large shower room. All needs were comfortable and the rooms well decorated.

The living space is perfect for a large group as there are several seating areas, a large kitchen and plenty of storage. The kitchen is extremely well equipped.

Outside the grounds are extensive. The pool is lovely and large. The seating areas are well spread out so that people can have peace and quiet if needed.

The villa is 1.2 miles from Lorgues and so getting bread etc in the morning is easy on foot or by car. It is equally easy to walk into town for a drink.

The local restaurants are great too.

Lorgues is stunning. We'd never been before but fell for the simplicity of the town whilst the history of the medieval centre is fascinating.

We hope to return!
