The wide gravel drive sweeps up to the house, flanked by stunning gardens. There is a large covered terrace outside the lounge with a summer kitchen, additional shade is provided by a large fig tree. The pool terrace adjoining the house is south facing and has a pergola covered by jasmine, vines and the Rose de Provence. The pool measures 9.50x4.30m and is heated from April to late October. The pool terrace has a selection of teak layout chairs with mattresses, dining table, occasional tables, chairs and deck chairs. Several large parasols provide shade when needed. The pool area is completely enclosed with wrought iron fences and gates with child proof locks to ensure that small children are safe at all times.

Wonder house

  • 5 of 5

Stunning house with everything we needed. Perfect for families and a very safe and considerate environment provided for small children. The pool was amazing, the beds were very comfortable as was the sitting room. A wonderful week.

Owner's Response: We have tried to furnish and equip the house as a family home and not just a holiday rental. We have stayed at the house ourselves with young grandchildren so safety, particularly around the pool was paramount. Joyce Hibell Owner

Perfect location for families

  • 5 of 5

We visited this villa with two families of four and our trip was incredible. There was ample room in the house for our busy group, the kitchen was well equipped and there were more than enough pool towels! All of the children were under the age of 4 and we really appreciated the children's cutlery, toys, high chairs, infant beds and of course the security of the pool area. Joanna - the property manager - was very helpful and happily answered a number of questions throughout the week.

The village of Bargemon was very close by and we enjoyed trips there at 7:00 am for the first batch of croissants at the boulangerie. We also visited during the day to wander the picturesque village.

I would highly recommend this property to any family or group looking for a sun- and pool-filled getaway in the Var. Note that travelling to Bargemon from Nice and Marseille was relatively pain free.

Owner's Response: Good to hear that the house provided ample room and facilities for a family group.We have spent many happy holidays there with our own family and grandchildren when they were small and therefore have catered for small children as well as adults. Joyce Hibell Owner

Owner's Response: Bargemon is one of the perched villages of the Var and therefore the area is very hilly in parts. Pavements are few and far between in the countryside. Many guests walk into the village,but it is a steep walk in parts and guests are warned if they ask about this. Fans are provided for the top bedroom in hot weather, but it has been particularly hot this June. I will look to provide an air-con unit in this room, if possible. Unfortunately this is a self-catering property and cleaning materials are not provided.

Rural sanctuary

  • 4 of 5

This was our third visit to this wonderful rural retreat in Bargemon. The house is comfortable with everything you need but it is the pool area that brings us back. The kids can play all day and the views are stunning. The village is a slice of rural French life. Collect you fresh bread at the patisserie and buy quality meat at the boucherie. There is a Proxi store selling everything else you will need! And if you can't face cooking there are three excellent restaurants in the village.

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

This villa is absolutely beautiful and the views are completely breathtaking.

It was the perfect place for a family holiday, we throughly enjoyed Bargemon and the surrounding areas, we really got to know the area well and would absolutely love to return.

Joanna (who looks after the villa) is an absolute star, so friendly and kind – she gave us lots of help and advice on places to visit.

We went away with 1 baby and 1 toddler - its totally geared up for kids - a great feature is the pool being gated. they also have great facilities like high chairs, cot beds, childrens cutlery and even a few books and DVDs.

The Villa is beautifully decorated, you can tell the owners have put a lot of time and effort into it. Very spacious and plently of room for parking.

Bargemon is only a couple of minutes drive away, more breath taking views. there is bakery, little supermarket, butchers etc and a few shops and restaurants. very quaint and the people were all really lovely, we were felt very welcomed.

all in all a fantastic stay! would absolutely recommend!

Absolutely Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautifully presented in a glorious location and in immaculate condition, lovely furniture and facilities, very spacious, great pool, very private and very close to the local amenities of Bargemon. Absolutely adored our stay there, very 'French', unspoilt and great place to go and visit some other stunning French villages and towns. I could not recommend this place any more, absolutely fabulous.
