Self Catering Lorgues Holiday Homes, Villas and Gites to Rent 

Lorgues is a small fortified provençal town in the Var department of the Provence-Alpes-Cote D’Azur region of South Eastern France. When you rent a holiday home in Lorgues you’ll discover it has the ambiance and age of a large medieval village, yet enjoys the advantages of shops and services of that of a town.

When you visit Lorgues you’ll discover that its old town still survives today. Much of the ancient wall, defensive gates and other old buildings remain impressively intact and consist of the maze of medieval streets rising along the upper side of the main drag: the Boulevard Georges Clemenceau and Cours de la République. The narrow streets have vaulted passages, ancient stairs, numerous buildings and doorways also contain lovely stone carvings. Many of the old "portes" allowing entrance into the walled central village, such as the 11th-century Porte Sarrasin and the 12th-century Porte Trébarry, still have the look of antiquity with their weathered grey stones.

When you stay in self catering accommodation in Lorgues be sure to spend time in the village’s centre. The main street is one-way and offers a calm, relaxed atmosphere for the many terrace cafés. Some of the plane trees in the upper village are centuries old and truly impressive. The 18th-century collegial St-Martin church, in the centre of town, is one of the largest in the Var. Viewed from outside the village, the massive Saint-Martin church is the most prevalent feature of Lorgues. The village’s other noted building is the 12th-century clock and bell tower, topped with the 1623 wrought-iron. The campanile bell-tower is in the old village, and was once at the corner of the defensive walls. 

You’ll note when you stay in a Lorgues Holiday Villa that many of its buildings are joined in long, continuous facades and painted in a multitude of Provencal colours with contrasting shutters. Ranging from pastels to bright colours, these give a certain theme to the village, with the lively mix of colours brightening up the long main street and shady squares, such as the Place Neuve.

To get to you Lorgues Holiday Home: The closet airport is at Toulon – which welcomes flights via Ryanair, there are also Marseille and Nice airports in the area – both of which welcome most of the low cost and schedule operators from the UK.  It’s a 10 ½ drive (without breaks) form the Eurotunnel and France’s northern ferry ports. Draguignan is the nearest train station with services to Paris.

The Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur region is renowned for its hot temperatures and pleasant climate throughout the year and especially for its sunny and dry weather during the summer months. The region benefits from 2835.5 sunshine hours a year and is the hottest place of France.
