If you want to lie about all day, go and stay by the beach, but, if you want to explore this fascinating part of France, there is no more pleasant a base than Villa Bagatelle.
It has all the facilities that you could want and your charming hosts will help with ideas of places to visit and where to eat out (our Lorgues favourite is Le Gourmet - simple, family-run with delicious food).
There is so much to see in the area. Within easy driving distance are dramatic mountains, azure lakes, river gorges, ancient hilltop villages, lively markets and, in spring, masses of
wild flowers. Then, back to base, across the terrace outside your room and into the sparkling pool to cool off. Perfect!
