Description of the Lorgues vacation home rental
between Lorgues and Les Arcs, LES CIGOGNES is part of an ancient family compound ("hameau").

The house
is situated at an altitude of 120 meters above sea level.This former bergerie was renovated for human habitation about 20 years ago, and over the past years was renovated to a more modern standard.

The peaceful, forested location is scented with herbs and pine, and has free views of nearby hills as well as distant mountains, and has a feeling of ancient, traditional Provence. Here, one is close to nature.

Several buildings of the hameau, which are next to the house on the eastern side are ruins, many of which are overgrown with fig and vine, and make an impression of a painting of the Romantic Period. Continuing on the other side of these are two ancient farm houses which are seldom occupied, the owners of which also possess some of the ruins.
