Super! Calm, beautiful, with the owner who cares. Beautifully located with very good vineyards nearby.
I would give 100/100
We had driven for two days to get to the house so we approached with some trepidation but once we pulled into the driveway we were immediately reassured that we had booked somewhere very special to stay. The house is very striking and has a commanding position at the top of the hill giving it the most amazing views for miles and miles. It is also very peaceful and calm as it is at the end of a dead end road with only a couple of other houses, it is also not over looked by others. The house is very comfortably furnished and charming. It is always cool but having air con in the living and kitchen areas when needed is a bonus. Most importantly when you are on holiday - the beds are comfortable!! The house is equipped as a home rather than a rental and we had everything we needed. wifi was good and did not keep dropping out but once we settled in I don't think we used it much as the house has such a great garden and pool we mainly lived outside. There is a wonderful covered terrace which was shady and allowed you to enjoy those views. Likewise there is some shade offered by the tree down by the pool. We spent many a calm hour listening to the Mistral winds rush through the majestic pines - bliss! I can honestly say that the garden and pool area are possibly the best kept and well attended to gardens of any house we have rented in France and we have been renting for over 15 years. Usually by August most Provence rental gardens are burnt to a crisp but La Passiflore was still fresh and green due to the irrigation system installed, massive and unexpected bonus! The pool too was spotless. We did have a bit of a problem with the fridge freezer failing on our first day, just after we had filled it to the brim! However, after contacting Jacqueline she moved very swiftly and efficiently to resolve the matter offering a very convenient temporary solution and then replacing the fridge within two days. These things happen but the matter was resolved very well, Jacqueline had somebody to look at the fridge within an hour - and on a Sunday! Prior to our visit Jacqueline had also been very helpful in answering all our questions very promptly too. Lorgues itself is a very nice place. It is possible to walk to town but might be tricky for anyone unsteady on their feet as the initial part of the path is a little steep and on rough ground but that is only for a very short stretch. We managed to walk down on several evenings with the children as there was lots to do in Lorgues at night including a night market and the first ever Nuit du Rose which was great fun. The morning market is pretty huge too and definitely worth visiting. We walked to Chateau de Bearne from the house for lunch which was excellent although it was a bit of hike back in the hot sun!! You can also kayak in the area and there is a challenging ariel treking circuit at Chateau L'Arnaude. Lots to do...or you could just do nothing and relax at La Passiflore! I would definitely recommend this house, La Passiflore is beautiful and it would be impossible to tire of those views.
Lovely house with a beautiful view of the village and the mountains. The house is nicely furnished, well equipped and have a very well kept garden. There is everything you need for having a wonderful holiday in France. I stayed in the house for a week with my son (10 years), my sister, brother in law and my mother. We found the house location perfect - very private, about 15 min walk to the center of the villages, friendly neighbors and a good base for exploring south France as for example Nice and Grand Canyon du Verdon. The pool perfect both for adults and children and is like the rest of the property in high quality. Last but not least - the owner is incredibly friendly and helpful, if there is the slightest doubt about anything and we look forward to hopefully being able to come back to this beautiful spot in France.
