Villa in Bormes-les-Mimosas, Nr. Le Lavandou, Var, Provence-Alpes Cote DAzur, France - 100m From The Beach
Santa Maria is a beautiful four bedroom French 1950s villa with a new 11 meter outdoor swimming pool. The villa is set in three quarters of an acre of landscaped and terraced garden, 100 metres from a quiet private sandy beach, surrounded by forest, sea and mountains in the South of France. The villa is located in what is known in French as a "domaine", a gated community that can only be entered by residents. It is five minutes drive from five other beautiful sandy or pebble private beaches, only accessible to residents of the domaine. This is one of the villa's greatest attractions as the domaine comprises of between three and four miles of private coast, backing on to 1000 acres of forested headland. Santa Maria shares the domaine with less than 200 other substantial properties and benefits from 24-hour security at the gate house that also operate regular patrols. This is one of France’s most famous Domaine’s, Domaine du Cap Benat, 2 miles from the President of France’s Summer residence, Chateau de Bregancon.
