Pride of the Var

Situated just to the West of the military and highly commercial town of Draguignan you will come across a small village called Lorgues. This charming town is decorated with mainly 18th Century architecture. A long tree-lined boulevard, one of the longest and most beautiful in Provence, leads you into the town. Inside you will discover old, beautifully preserved olive oil mills as well as charming religious buildings. A number of ruins are also well worth a visit. The very centre of the town is marked by the impressively large St-Martin's church. It was built in the 18th Century and is one of the largest in the Var.

Culinary delights

The town has a longstanding tradition of winemaking. Today, the wine from the area is exported all over the world. The restaurants that fill the town are highly alluring and use local produce. It is possible to take cooking lessons.

Keeping active

A trip out of the town will reveal more delights. Beyond the two rivers, which surround the town there are a number of tiny hamlets and remote chapels. Hiking and mountain biking are very popular activities, while within the town you will find swimming and horse riding on offer.

Discovering the past

Lorgues is a fortified town with much of its defences still intact. You can follow the wall around the town and see the 'portes' by which the town controlled who came in and out. Or you may choose to wander into the old town and follow the numbered plaques around the 20 historical sites of interest. The tourist information centre will give you a colourful map of the town.
