Maison Vaussiere – 6 persons / Lorgues
Maison Vaussiere is located within walking distance of Lorgues, quietly set at the end of a cul-de-sac with only 2 neighbours and no passing traffic.
The spacious garden is fenced with an iron gate making this house safe for small children and dogs.
You can enjoy uninterrupted views over the vineyards from the garden's terraces or swim in the (heated) pool in the privacy of your garden. The house has a 'jeux de boules' court, where you can practice the local sport during your holiday. Balls etc are available in the house.
The garden also has a lawn for children to play and there are olive trees and other mature planting in the charming and very well-maintained garden. The pool (heated on request in spring and autumn) has wide steps into the water, practical for parents with small children or if you want to have a rest from swimming. There are also parasols and large bushes for that most important shade in the midday sun.
On the terraces you find tables and chairs for al-fresco dining both at the front and back of the house. Pots with flowers and other plants make this garden a little haven for it's visitors. If you want warm fresh baguettes and croissants in the morning you can do the 15-20 minute walk (or 2 minute's drive) into the village, where you find a selection of bakeries and small cafés serving freshly brewed coffee and "petit dejeuner". There are several supermarkets in Lorgues, which are open all day all week (in July and August every day) and Sunday until noon (during Spring and Autumn) for all your daily shopping.
On Tuesdays the busy famous Lorgues market is in full swing from early morning until 13.00 – the largest in the region. On Fridays there is a farmer's market with local farmers selling their produce. In high season this market is also combined with a brocante.

Although our vacation was early April, the weather was already very nice and we enjoyed the nice pool.

It was a very comfortable, spacious and well-equipped house . . . put together very thoughtfully, making sure we would have an unforgettable stay.
Convenient location, perfect if you want to explore its surroundings, which are also beautiful.
We had a wonderful stay and especially enjoyed the lovely swimming pool. Would recommend!

We had a great time in this beautiful and well-equipped house. It is clean, comfortable and has a very attractive garden and a nice big swimming pool.
Places to sit at the front and at the back of the house. It has everything you need. The location is perfect for us: near the village but still calm – you feel right at home.
