Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Located on the first floor of an old village house, with immediate access from the street, this spacious, light apartment has been furnished with heirlooms from the old family home in England, keeping traditions and family memories alive. Both sitting room and main bedroom look out over the valley to the south and so benefit from the early- to mid-morning sun, which streams through the tall, old fashioned-windows. On these kinds of mornings, it is lovely to fling open the windows and lean out and admire the views and street below. A decent-sized terrace, shaded in Summer by an overhead vine, is directly accessible from the large, country-style kitchen at the back of the building. For the Winter months and for those wanting full-afternoon sun, an upper garden-terrace is available, up a few, fairly steep steps. This apartment sleeps 4 comfortably, with an option of accommodating an extra two people on the sofa-bed in the sitting room. Bargemon is a small, friendly village with its share of art galleries, ramparts, fountains and museums. Fetching the fresh baguette, croissants and pain au chocolats first thing in the morning, takes minutes. And for later in the day, there is a selection of restaurants (some of which close in the Winter months) including one or two owner-chef establishments serving excellent, innovative food. There is plenty to see and do in the surrounding area and is particularly well placed for those loving outdoor sports and lifestyle.

About this location
The Provence region
We chose to buy a home in the Var, not only because it is one of the sunniest, hottest regions in France but because it has so much to offer in terms of activities and interests – from skiing at places such as Greolieres, Isola and Valberg to coastal towns and beaches such as St. Tropez, St. Raphael, Antibes and St. Maxime. Not all the beaches are sandy; some are formed from the red rocks of the Esterel mountain range – and beautiful in their own right.
In the north lies the Gorge du Verdon, (often referred to as France's Grand Canyon) and is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts and those who just want to admire from the seat of a car. The rural heartland is home to many historic cathedrals and abbeys, as well as the Cotes de Provence vineyards and many olive farms. Worth mentioning are the pretty medieval villages such as Tourtour, Cotignac & Villecroze as well as Grasse, which is the perfume centre of the World. Many of the villages and towns also have weekly markets, selling a host of different local delicacies and specialties.
The region is easily accessible by air (Toulon and Nice airports), road and Eurostar railway (stopping at Les Arcs and Draguignan).
Surrounded by mountainous forests, Bargemon forms a perfect, quiet getaway in a historic hilltop village, yet still within easy driving distance of the Cote d'Azur attractions. Most of the roads leading to the village cut through these forests and twist and turn providing amazing views and the occasional heart-stopping moment! Neighbouring villages such as Callas, Clavier, Seillans and Fayence each has its unique characteristic such as markets, music, art, history and outdoor activities. There are many attractions for the outdoor enthusiasts such as hiking and trail-running through the forests, para-gliding off Bargemon's Col du Belhomme, horse-riding, tennis, golf, swimming in the public pool and much more. In late summer the hedgerows are full of figs, blackberries and walnuts, which make walking the local lanes and pathways a culinary delight! The closest large town is Draguignan, a drive of approximately 30 minutes, but most basic groceries and services you will require, can be sourced in Bargemon itself. Market day is Thursday and if you miss that, there is no need to worry, as Callas, just down the road has its market on a Saturday. A little further afield but more extensive, are the markets of Fayence and Le Muy. The latter has a market every Thursday and Sunday morning where you can buy such things as boar and fig sausage, cheese, pissaladiere, wine, fudge, peaches, forest mushrooms and the list goes on.
