Overview

About the property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms, 2.25 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Lorgues, quiet, intimate, yet close to wineries and so many sites in Provence. This is a small, hill village dating from 1100's with an outstanding Provencal market and great restaurants. The main street is shaded by Plane trees with small shops and local cafes that invite one to linger over wine and coffee and croissants watching the world go by.

The house is at the top of the village on a cul de sac that is less than a 3 minute walk from the main street. Somewhere in its 900 year old history it was a barn, but before that recent research indicates it was the residence of local monks associated with Saint Martins Parish. Its medieval lineage shows in the stone fleur de lys carving indicating it is one of the town's oldest dwellings.

Today it is a lovely 1500 sq. foot house on two floors. The remodeling was done 5 years ago by a local designer and the house has both a cozy and spacious feel. It has the most beautiful kitchen. If you want to try your hand at cooking some of the delicacies from the local markets, this is the house for you. WE hardly ever really cook, but often enjoy eating dinner at home after a day exploring the hill towns or at the coast or the golf course, and it's wonderful to prepare our purchases in such an ambiance... or on hot days take a simple dinner to the patio and contemplate the 1000 year old town wall adjacent to the courtyard.

The ground floor of the house has a living room with seating for 6, a fireplace, English and French language TV, stereo. The kitchen includes an excellent new 5 burner stove, frig, freezer, dishwasher, micro, coffee maker and all pots, pans, plates and glasses necessary. The dining room table seats 6 to 8, and gives onto a courtyard through large glass doors.

On the second floor the master bedroom is very large and light with tall ceilings, a skylight, and windows that open onto the courtyard. The air conditioner in the master bedroom keeps things comfortable in hot weather, but the house is stone and keeps cool itself as it is shaded during the hottest part of the day. There is a large bath with tadlakt finishes like those used on the palaces of Morocco. There is a large tub and shower wand, heated towel rack and a closet with washer, dryer, iron, etc. Hair dryers are included. This bedroom has its own study with desk, lounge chair and internet and computer hooked to the internet. Just turn it on and get your email.

The second bedroom is of good size with comfortable bed, closet and separate bath with sink and walk in shower. There is a separate toilet room.

The stairway leading to the 2nd floor is modern with an unguarded open side making it dangerous for small children. For this reason and the high quality of some of the furniture,the house is not suitable for small children.

There is parking, when available, in the courtyard next door. If not, in one of 2 town lots a block away.
