The house had no name when we bought it. Eagle owls live in the cliffs behind the house calling most evenings and occasionally swoop over the house and garden. Hibou is french for owl!
We fell in love with the views and the location. The house was renovated to be a real home from home where we could all relax and enjoy the warmth and sunshine of southern France. Eagle owls can be heard calling most evenings along the cliffs above the house. These hugh majestic birds have even been seen flying over head in the garden, hence the name Hibou (owl) Heights.
The Balcony in front of the house gives a fantastic open feel... you become at one with the views. We eat all meals on it using one area for breakfast (sunny) and a different one for lunch (Shady) still leaving ample room for sunbathing or snoozing!
The medieval hillside village of Bargemon is a gastronomic centre with seven delightful restaurants: my personal favourites are La Campana, where the lamb is cooked on an open fire, La Pescalune, where Virgine cooks a fusion of international flavours and L'Arlequin which does a great value menu du jour. At The Cafe du Commerce one can sit in the open air and watch the world go by. There are a number of shops: a mini-supermarket, butcher, baker, wine shop, pharmacy, DIY/garden, garage. There are also museums and art galleries. The weekly market has good fruit/vegetables, bread and olives. There are many nearby vineyards which encourage tasting and offer a selection of different wines. The surrounding area is ideal for walking, cycling and horse-riding. There are golf courses locally. The spectacular Verdon Gorges are a short drive away and the seaside towns of St. Tropez and Cannes are an hour's drive.
