About Onze Maison Lorgues ...
From the same owners as Onze Chalet in the Alps http://www.onzechaletmanigod.com Onze Maison in Lorgues is your picture-perfect Provencale villa - soft pink walls, terracotta tiles, shady terraces and an azure pool.
But there is so much more to this hill-top home than you can even dream of - the accent is very much on outdoor living, and the 100m terrace has a fully-fitted summer kitchen complete with a brick-built barbecue.
There's another terrace on other side of the villa which catches the morning sun, making it perfect for a leisurely breakfast, and if you fancy an evening cocktail, why not relax on one of the sun loungers or the four-poster pool-side bed.
The villa is just a five-minute (4.5km) drive from the pretty town of Lorgues, where you'll find a good selection of bars, restaurants and shops around a traditional square, and there's a bustling market packed with tempting local produce on Tuesdays and Fridays.
The property ...
The Dutch owners of Onze Maison Lorgues chose the name because the word onze means "our" in Dutch, and it's very apparent that this is a much-loved home.
Sleeping 11, there are two double bedrooms on the ground floor, both of which are en suite and overlook the pool - one of the bedrooms also has a single bed. The other ground floor bedroom at the other end of the house has a single bed with a further pull-out single bed beneath.
Upstairs there are two more double bedrooms, both with tvs and dvd players, and a bathroom, as well as a large but cosy galleried sitting area with satellite TV, dvd player etc.
Looking at the elegant living room with its huge fireplace and wrought-iron sweeping staircase, it's hard to believe the villa is less than 30 years old. Warm earthy colours combined with wood, iron and ceramic tiles mean Onze Maison Lorgues sits comfortably in its beautiful surroundings.
The large kitchen has everything you need to cook for a crowd and then as soon as the weather turns warmer, the well-equipped summer kitchen and barbecue on the terrace come into their own, with a huge fridge perfect for keeping the drinks cold!
You'll want to be outside by the pool most of the time, You'll also find an unusal open air shower room out here. It's enclosed on three sides and screened from the garden with plants - perfect for rinsing off after a dip in the saltwater pool.
About the area ...
The hustle and bustle of St Tropez and the French Riviera are just an hour from Onze Maison Lorgues, but we're sure you'll love the quieter pace of life that you'll find in the villages around this beautiful villa.
If you ever get bored of sitting around the pool or exploring the beautiful gardens, a short drive will take you into the heart of wine country. The surrounding area is dotted with wine chateaux - just follow the signs on the side of the roads for a tasting.
The village of Villecroze (15 min drive) in the foothills of the Alps is home to some impressive caves which were fortified in the 19th century, and medieval Tourtour, just a little further on, is said to be one of France's most beautiful villages.
Children of all ages will enjoy the treetop rope trail at L'Arnaude Aventures in Lorgues and adults looking for a little peace and quiet can find it at the Abbaye du Thoronet, a partly restored Cistercian monastery.
There are plenty of restaurants within a short drive of Onze Maison Lorgues, but for a special occasion head for the Michelin-starred Chez Bruno, just 10 minutes away, which specialises in truffles.
For dramatic scenery head to the Verdon Gorge - France's very own grand canyon! It's about an hour's drive to this stunning river canyon, which is about 25km long and about 700m deep. For great views, lunch at the Hotel Grand Canyon du Verdon.
Aix-en-Provence, the birthplace of Cezanne, is an hour west of Onze Maison Lorgues - visit his studio, stroll down the Cours Mirabeau or take a guided tour of the historic city. In Toulon enjoy lunch at the harbour, take the telepherique to the top of Mont Faron for the best views (there's a zoo at the top too), or discover the open-air market at Cours Lafayette.
We are sure you are already picturing your holiday around the pool at Onze Maison Lorgues, so why not check our availability calendar and choose a date? We can hold it for you for 24 hours if you like, so that you can finalise your plans. But don't wait too long - we'd hate you to miss out on that dream holiday!

The OVO Network Review
“A stunning haven within 50 minutes of St Tropez!”
If you close your eyes and imagine the perfect place to spend a holiday in the south of France you imagine Onze Maison; do you imagine a pool surrounded by loungers, parasols and an outdoor sleeping space? Check! A beautifully landscaped garden with lots of different seating areas and views beyond the pool and cyprus trees over a quiet valley and olive groves? Check! An outdoor shower screened from view by plants and the outdoor kitchen with one end open to the garden leading directly to the outside dining space? Check! Over 100m2 of terrace between house and garden with more terracing on the opposite side of the house to catch the morning sun? Check! The table tennis table set up to benefit from the shade in the afternoon and evening? Check! The two spacious bedrooms overlooking the pool are ensuite, there are 3 more bedrooms, one more bathroom and two more wc's indoors. If the weather turns a little chill there is another indoor kitchen, a dining room, lounge, and a separate tv lounge.
We love this well set up, well equipped property just outside the town of Lorgues, a 50 minute drive from the beach at St Tropez, 15 minutes from the TGV station and in between the airports of Nice, Toulon and Marseille. However you plan to arrive this property is beautifully decorated, and has space for all indoors and out. It's perfect for friends, families or a mixture of both and with bedrooms and other amenities on the ground floor it's also suitable for those with restricted mobility. The same owners also own a beautiful property in the Alps Onze Chalet : www.onzechaletmanigod.com

From the Owner
The shape and location of the house immediately gives you the feeling of being embraced - the setting is magnificent.
Hello, we are Ellen and Gijs from the Netherlands owners of this dream of a house in Lorgues, Provence. It is a beautiful villa located on the south side of a hill, between cypress trees, olive trees, oleanders and vineyards.
The shape and location of the house immediately gives you the feeling of being embraced - the setting is magnificent. The saltwater pool is of course the centre of the garden where everyone can enjoy swimming or a cool down in the summer. There are plenty of different shady spots, created by the large covered terrace, or the pergola, one of many sunshades or the thatched Eastern-style outdoor bedroom. We love spending time here in Provence with our four daughters and friends.
The rooms are spacious and the high ceilings mean the house remains cool in summer. However, life mainly takes place outdoors in the open covered kitchen, around the pool, relaxing in the outdoor lounge, or round the large dining table next to the barbecue/ open fire. From breakfast through the long summer evenings until late into the night, there is plenty of space for everyone.
The charming village of Lorgues is 5 minutes away by car, home to shops, a large weekly market, and numerous restaurants, all of which are open throughout the year. The best known restaurant is "Bruno" where menus revolve around truffles. Travellers make a detour especially to eat there, the Michelin star makes sense!
The location of Lorgues in the triangle formed by Marseille, Nice and Toulon ensures that the villa is easily accessible by plane. It's a one hour drive to the coast with towns like St Tropez, St Maxime and the beautiful village of Ramatuelle all within easy reach.
We love sharing this breathtaking place with others, and wish all of our future guests visiting "Onze Maison" a lovely time.
Gijjs and Ellen
We had a great time in this wonderful villa.
The kids and parents enjoyed the pool a lot !
The house is fully equipped; we never encountered something missing or out of operation.
The view from the house is great and we enjoyed the many different possibilities and locations to sit and chat in the garden.
We would definitely recommend it to others !

“Very suitable for two families.”
A fantastic holiday home with every single amenity you can imagine ! Very tastefully decorated, and nice and helpful host.

“Excellent design and elegant deco”
My stay at Onze Maison was one of the best I experienced recently. Too bad I couldn't enjoy all its amenities because of my frequent trips to surrounding attractions! I particularly liked the house design and the elegant deco touches everywhere around the house. My favorite feature was definitely the pool.

“A lovely house”
Onze Maison Lorgues is a beautiful house. You will find everything you need here. The towns in the neighbourhood, the monastery and the Gorges du Verdon are worth visiting.
The house is very complete and beautifully decorated.
We liked the old village.
Mirjam B. - 23/09/2017
We had an amazing holiday in Lorges at Onze Maison. The villa was a great location, lovely pool and very well equiped.
We found the place comfortable for our big family, ideal for children and a great place to go back to in the future !

“Perfectly arranged for two families”
We had a marvellous holiday in this beautiful house in Lorgues. Everything had been thought of to make sure we were comfortable. Our children, aged from eight to 11, enjoyed themselves in the pool and the garden, and made good use of the ping pong table. We particularly enjoyed the outside kitchen, where we spent some unforgettable evenings. The house is very comfortable and perfectly arranged for two families. We would definitely come back!

We had a fantastic week in this gorgeous villa with a great pool for adults and children to enjoy.

“Time flies at Onze Maison !”
Dear Ellen en Gijs, when you master the road uphill and pass through the gate, then your holiday begins! Lovely surroundings, beautiful gardens and swimming pool, luxury rooms and bathrooms, and let's not forget the outdoor kitchen for lunches and dinners. Everything is there to welcome you and invite you to enjoy life at Onze Maison. Also to recommend: coffee in Lorgues, pizza at Hotel Central, biking and walking to the little villages around Lorgues, checking the local markets, rafting in the Gorges du Verdon, etc. Time flies over there! Thank you for a wonderful stay at your "palace".
Bianca H. - 11/06/2016
“Felt rejuvenated after this week !”
I had the pleasure of staying in this wonderful house in Lorgues, with 7 friends to write music. Can't describe how peaceful and beautiful the view is when you get up in the morning and walk towards the pool. We've enjoyed great days and long nights in and around the house, all you need is right there. Check out the Tunisian butcher in town who does amazing meat! Same goes for the wine shop around the corner and the many chateaux in the area.
I would encourage anyone in doubt to do yourself a favour and spend a week in this stunning villa too.

“The house exactly matched our needs”
This year we wanted to rent a villa in an area in which our whole family could have a good time: both of us, our 3 kids aged 17, 23 and 29, their loved ones and our first grandchild aged 7 months. We found this house pretty easy and it exactly matched our needs. A very quiet area, beautiful gardens including a very clean pool (non-chlorine), a nice "cuisine d'été" (summer kitchen) outside but not out in the open, including a large barbecue, a very nice interior and good quality king sized beds in the five different bedrooms.
We had a wonderful stay and enjoyed every minute of it! So in our view a place we would highly recommend to others which was also very good value for money.
Next year, we will definitely come back and stay a little longer, because there is still so much to explore in and around Lorgues and the rest of the Var province!
