Villa St Augustin has a bit of history. The original part of the building dates back to the 18th Century and although it's now just a short walk to the local village, it use to be surrounded by agricultural land. The farm workers would stop off at the tiny, two storey 'watering hole' for a well deserved drink.

The current owners have recently completely renovated and extended the building to create a unique 2 bedroom private villa. Some of the quirky original features such as the exposed stone walls remain, but all modern comforts have been added.

There's a wonderful, shaded courtyard, as well as a large private garden with an enclosed swimming pool

Please note: although the house looks quite close to the Autoroute (A7) on the google map, you can not see or hear this road from the villa.

When booking this gite, the reviews sounded very good. And it certainly didn't disappoint, we had a great week. It is located in the centre of Orgon with local amenities (boulangeries, supermarket, pizzas, restaurant, pharmacy etc). Although near main roads it is on a good size plot, hidden away and feels very secluded. We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfasts in the... more

A lovely little place hidden away. The property fitted us perfectly - 2 adults and an 8 year old. It was jam packed with character and had every amenity we needed. The upstairs bedroom was like a den for the 8 year old being up an incredibly steep set of steps - no grown ups allowed. The property isn't for... more

Additional amenities & feature info
The owners of Villa St Augustin live in a farmhouse close by and have carefully planned the renovation of this building with holidaymakers in mind.

The central kitchen and living room have been created from the original, 18th Century part of the building and benefit from thick stone walls which keep it lovely and cool in the height of the summer. The kitchen is well equipped with fridge, freezer, oven, dish washer and washing machine.

Inside the villa there's a downstairs double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and an upstairs twin room, both with air-conditioning. There's also a separate ground floor shower room and toilet.

The kitchen and living room are spacious and open plan with french doors leading out into the private courtyard.
