Find Luxury Property For Sale in Lorgues
Lorgues is situated in the centre of the beautiful Var department, in the South of Provence along the Mediterranean coast. Unlike its fast-paced neighbours on the French Riviera, Lorgues and the Var generally is more traditionally Provencal and tranquil – which is exactly why buyers search for homes here. The fortified city has its roots in the 11th century, and you can clearly see its history in the area’s ancient and religious architecture, carvings, cobbled streets and vaulted passageways.
The main street in Lorgues, which is lined with plane trees, has a market every Tuesday, selling produce, kitchenware, clothing, jewellery and home goods. The rest of the week, a stroll along the main street will take you by cafes, restaurants and shops. Then, during Christmastime, you’ll be treated to festive seasonal markets. Shop for Christmas gifts and marvel at the costumed performers on stilts.
Many of the properties in Lorgues are villas and farmhouses, often with landscaped gardens and sparkling pools, which are ideal for anyone seeking a classic Mediterranean way of life. Villas in Lorgues tend to have modern builds and features, though they’ve retained the classic style you’d want to find in Provence, farmhouses tend to be more traditional properties, built in stone. There are also bastides for sale in the area, which have symmetrical builds and often include outbuildings on the property. And if you’re after an even larger piece of land, you can certainly find grand countryside estates.
Lorgues is surrounded by rivers and countryside, with olive trees, wineries and medieval villages practically everywhere. One of them is Tourtour, which has been listed as a Plus Beaux Village de France, or one of The Most Beautiful Villages in France – and it’s worth a visit, if only for the stunning views of Provence. You’re also about 20 minutes from Cotignac, another Provencal village with 16th and 17th-century houses and an old quarter with plenty of personality. If you’re ready for a trip to the sea and vibrant Saint Tropez, it’s just one hour south of Lorgues. Or, travel in the other direction for an hour and a half to visit Les Gorges du Verdon, a breathtakingly beautiful river canyon.
Lorgues is as practical as it is desirable. Homes here have strong rental opportunities, making it a prime place to purchase an investment property or a managed property that you’ll use for holidays. You may also find a home that’s already serving as a B&B or one that has the potential to be turned into one. Some of the homes in Lorgues are so expansive that you could convert into a hotel with 15 rooms or so to host guests. Access to Lorgues is available via the Toulon-Hyères Airport or the Nice Cote d’Azur Airport, which are within approximately 75 kilometres (46 miles) and 90 kilometres (56 miles), respectively.
