Maison Olive – 6 persons / Lorgues
Maison Olive is a lovely single-storage villa, which has a rustic and at the same time modern charm both inside and outside with a well-maintained garden and a lovely private salt water pool just on the edge of the vineyards set back about 200 m from a very quiet country road. So if you want a piece of the real Provençale countryside and opportunity to relax in quiet and peaceful surroundings, this is it!
The house is situated about 5 minutes drive from the centre of Lorgues with all the amenities you would expect on a 3600 sq m plot set in a valley with vineyards, olive trees and cypresses on all sides with no immediate neighbours.
Lovely hideaway : We were four people and had a good time in the quiet house with large area forest and vinyard. Amazing view over the salt water pool and garden.
Good beds and a great bathroom in the new part of the house. Tip: canoe and swimming in the nearby "Argens"
Maison Olive, July 2019
A very nice house in beautiful and quiet surroundings. Three good bedrooms, two of those spacious. A nice living room and a well equipped kitchen. A fine pool. Everything nice and clean. If something needed to be fixed, Malene and Phil took care of it very quickly. Very friendly people 🙂

A well-maintained private track lined with old olive trees on each side leads to this three bedroom house with the living space centrally placed and the bedrooms situated in each end of the house.
From the terrace spanning the whole width of the house, you have direct access to the kitchen, living room and two of the bedrooms. The lounge is open plan with the kitchen and dining area and the master bedroom with en-suite shower/wet-room and toilet is situated to one side of the living room. The living room and master bedroom was newly added 7 years ago and are tastefully and sympathetically decorated with the same simple rustic flavour.
The lounge has a tranquil but modern feel with a bright colour scheme and travertine floors throughout. There is a cosy seating area with a sofa and further chairs and a wood burner central in the room. From here you have an open plan dining area with a 6-person dining table and an office space tucked away in the corner.
From this area you have access to the outdoor terrace via a glass door and to the kitchen, which – with two further bedrooms and a shower room – is part of the original house with all the charm that offers.
The kitchen is simple but sufficiently equipped with a 4-ring gas cooker/oven, dishwasher, Nespresso coffee machine, electric kettle, food processor, storage cupboard with cutlery and crockery more than enough for 6 persons. There is also a wooden centre island and an accommodating fridge freezer.
On the other side of the kitchen there is a bedroom wing, where you have another two bedrooms accessed via a hallway. You also find the family shower room with shower, toilet and basin in this part of the house.
Bedroom 1 (master bedroom) has a double bed (2 single mattresses 80 x 200 cm), a wardrobe/shelf unit for clothes, a table with a chair and travertine floor. There is access to the spacious en-suite shower room with toilet, basin and wet-room shower, all tastefully decorated with the same travertine tiles on the floor and walls as in the bedroom and lounge.
Bedroom 2 has a double bed (2 single mattresses 90 x 200 cm) and direct access to the front terrace with an awning for shade.
Bedroom 3 also has a double bed (1 mattress 140 x 200 cm) and a fold-out single bed (70 x 200 cm). In this room you have a private sink unit and wardrobe space and access to the awning covered part of the terrace. Here you find a cupboard with hoover, iron and ironing board and other utensils as well as the washing machine. There is also a small table with a chair.
There are mosquito screens for the windows in the bedrooms.
From the terrace at the front of the house you have lovely views over the pool, garden, the vineyards and the terraced forest-clad valley beyond. The garden has many exotic plants like cypresses, palm trees, flowers and other plants in pots and the stonewalls surrounding the pool area and the dining terrace add to the country feel.
There is a WiFi internet connection. The house has no TV but with a fast connection you can stream movies and other entertainment easily. Please see our General terms and Conditions for use of the internet and other useful information on our website www.gites-provence.eu.com.
The 8 x 4 m gated salt water pool has a spacious surrounding terrace with plenty of sun loungers and parasols to help you enjoy the sun and also provide shade when needed.
The garden is well maintained and blends seamlessly into the Provençale surroundings beyond. There is a dining area with a charcoal barbecue placed on a raised gravelled part of the garden between the pool and the house with views to the pool and the surrounding area with the all-important shade provided by a big tree. On the terrace in front of the house you find comfortable seating with tables, chairs and a sofa.
This house provides the perfect setting for a family to enjoy peaceful local surroundings combined with the convenience of being not too far away from the village for shopping, dining and the famous local market on Tuesday – a must when visiting Lorgues. There is also a farmer's market every Friday.
The house is ideally situated for the fashionable resorts of the Cote d Azur to visit Nice, Cannes, Antibes, Monaco and St. Tropez. In the inlands you will find a wide range of activities such as cycling/mountain biking, swimming, horseback riding, tennis and hiking through the nearby vineyards.
You can play golf (3 golf courses nearby). The natural beauty of the Gorges du Verdon as about an hour away, ideal for mountain climbing, mountain biking, canoeing and pedalos. We also recommend the waterfall of Sillans la Cascade, where you can enjoy hiking and swimming. Beach and sea from St. Maxime are reached within 45 min.
Bicycles can be rented in Vidauban, where you can choose for all ages and purposes. They will deliver and collect for a small fee - please ask for details. Riding and fishing are near by. Water sports and paragliding etc are activities, you can enjoy nearer the coast.
