Designed for a small family or couple, the serene and beautiful Lorette Cottage is a gem in the heart of Provence, just minutes away from the picturesque town centre of Brignoles. This one-bedroom, delightful home is set within the same grounds as Villa Lorette, you can choose to rent both properties as a large group, or the cottage on its own for a more intimate gathering of up to four guests. If choosing to rent the cottage alone, please be aware that you will be sharing the park with other guests of the villa. 

The property faces the shared swimming pool, with an ambience of Mediterranean warmth that shrouds the entire cottage. With light reflecting elegantly off the water, soft green hues through the vines and plants that are overflowing around the terrace, and the traditional architecture of the cottage that speaks to its history filled with family memories from times gone by. There is not one corner of this beautifully renovated cottage that is not a delight, we cannot recommend it enough!

The atmosphere as you walk in is bohemian, with a large dining area on the ground floor that opens out to the communal garden. Whilst there are modern touches to the design, the furnishings have been collected, found and made over the years, adding a warmth and charm to every living space. There is also a large bathroom on the ground floor. 

Stepping upstairs, the cottage boasts a sublime bedroom with a natural rattan headboard on the bed and views over the garden. A second room can be used as either a cosy living room or a second bedroom, with a day bed for extra guests. 

As you wonder across the terrace, it is hard to choose the best spot from which to enjoy the stunning views and natural surroundings. You can take a dip in the exquisite pool whilst gazing out to large multi-hundred-year-old trees and extracts of Provençal scrubland. Lorette Cottage offers the romance and charm you have been waiting for - the ultimate Provence retreat!

This beautiful cottage is located in the historic centre of Brignoles, with all day-to-day amenities you could need within a short walk. Whether you want to go out for a meal, a drink, head to the cinema or pick up some fresh food from the market, everything is on your doorstep.  Brignoles is a bigger town with a wider range of shops and restaurants. The former ruling Counts used to live here in a palace which now houses a regional museum with exhibitions on everything from day-to-day life to the period in the 18th century when the town was chosen as a temporary home for the Parliament because of the plague. If you are in town on a Wednesday or a Saturday, then make time to peruse the bustling market stalls where you can purchase locally produced items such as olives, honey and peaches. 

La Celle is another beautiful village to visit, around 2.5km away by car. This typical Provencal village is centred around agricultural life and the river Caramy which flows through it and is a peaceful place to visit. The main attraction is the imposing Abbey which was home to Benedictine nuns for 500 years; today, visitors can look around the recently restored buildings and the exhibitions. As well as archaeological artefacts and items from the Abbey, there is also a modern exhibition on display here. Next door to the Abbey, there is a Michelin-star restaurant, the Hostellerie de l'Abbaye, perfect for a celebratory meal.

Although the cottage is inland, it takes under an hour to get to the breath-taking coastline, which is dotted with plenty of beaches. One of the closest beaches is Plage de la Garonne which is 42km away and is a long sandy beach. If you do not mind travelling just a little further for a day trip, why not drive the extra 18km down to Port de la Tour Fondue and take a relaxing boat ride to the Golden Islands. There are three islands to visit, the largest being Porquerolles, a beautiful, protected island. Spend the day enjoying the unspoilt beaches and snorkelling in the clear water or make the most of the brilliant hiking and cycling routes to explore more of the island. There are even restaurants on the islands, so you do not need to rush back for dinner.

Provence gets more and more popular for family holidays each passing year! The area has always been a much-loved holiday location for those with children, offering plenty of wide-open space for running and playing around, as well as having the coast and charming villages nearby, it is easy to see why.  

8km from the villa, Gorges du Caramy offers a wonderful spot for a walk with the kids. There is a scenic route through woodland, past an old roman bridge and out onto the river Caramy with a beautiful series of small waterfalls and rapids. Children can bring nets or rods to try fishing or take a dip in the clear pools, perfect for cooling off on hot summer days. 

For the young thrill-seekers among you, why not drive down to the seaside town of Fréjus, which is under an hour away (70km). The town has a waterpark with a range of slides and pools to suit all ages as well beaches and a fun fair open late in the evening.
