"Que sara pas counten, vague a Lorgo" .... if you are not happy go to Lorgues.... an old regional saying
Lorgues is a picturesque medieval village situated in the heart of the wine and olive region of the Maures hillside. Its origin can be traced to Roman times and the Middle Ages with remains of walls, gates, alleyways and old chapels (XVc Chapel Benva "good journey" being one of the best examples). The name Lorgues itself is alleged to date back to 1478.
The imposing three hundred year old Saint Martin Collegiale (church) as well as the large plane trees lined avenues and fountains are the setting for a thriving typical provencal market every tuesday morning.
This lively village with cafes, renowned restaurants (one of them enjoying a Michelin star), shops, banks, to meet all your daily needs is only an hour from Nice, Hyeres, Marseille airports, 45 minutes from Cannes and St Tropez. Therefore you can enjoy the glamorous Cote d'Azur and its famous beaches, the Sarasin hilltop villages, the Verdon Canyon and all the typical Provencal sites in nearby villages and towns.
Situated a stone 's throw from the Collegiale and the heart of the village this charming town cottage with its own drive and wrought iron gate to La Bourgade Square is set in the grounds (1 acre) of the owners' main residence.
It enjoys privacy, calm and, if desired, shares with the owners (from early April to the end of September) a landscaped garden with mature mediterranean trees, shrubs a large tantalizing tiled "infinity" pool and a pool-deck.
It is well secluded by the tall rectory stone wall and from its sunny terrrace and courtyard the view of the Collegiale bell tower can be admired especially at night time.
