I am Veronique Jansen, interior designer in the Centre of Holland. I have my own company in decorating houses for my busy customers in Holland, but also for people with second houses in foreign countries. My specialism to furnish houses completely turnkey. My passions are: France, Bargemon, colours, interiors, musique. Werner Wiggers, my husband, is managing consultant/project manager in the energy business. He works also on a freelance basis. His passions: wine and dine, golf, biking. We have 2 lovely children, Jeroen and Lisanne. 8 years ago we bought our house in Bargemon and so we created our second home and life in this beautiful area. Every time when we are in Bargemon, we are completely surprised by its beauty and nature. We feel privileged that we have this place.
Veronique Jansen purchased this villa in 2005
There are several reasons why we bought La Bergerie. This house has a very special atmosphere for us. It is cosy, authentic and has a beautiful naturally big garden. We live there in a quiet area, far away from the crowds, but not isolated en close to nice villages and beautiful cities. The climate is superb with 300 days of sunshine per year. That day, June 2005, we visited the house for the first time, we smelled the broom all over the place and we both fell in love. The house is only 2km away from Bargemon. My opinion, Bargemon is one of the most lovely villages in the Var I know. There is a big central terrace, cosy terraces with platens, good restaurants, galleries, but it is not to commercial. Bargemon is also very easy to reach: by car, TGV (30 min.) and airplane (3 airports).
We had a splendid vacation at Bargemon. Your house is absolutely beautiful in an idyllic setting! We would certainly try to come back, and will recommend it to friends.
We had a very nice holiday at ?La Bergerie?, an old authentic house full of charm. We loved the kitchen, the living room and the outside terrace. The swimming pool was nice but separated by 2 stairs from the house. The lovely village Bargemon where you find some nice restaurants is only 2 km away.
La Bergerie offered us everything we had hoped for on a holiday in Provence: a beautiful, well maintained and tastefully decorated house, a fragrant garden with rosemary, marjoram and lavender, apricot trees and cypresses, a terrace perfect for unhurried breakfasts and dinners and a pool shaded by ancient olive trees. The house is suitable for holidaymakers with different ideas of a fun vacation: while my children splashed away at the pool, my elderly parents spent long, relaxing afternoons in the various lounging areas in the garden. There was quite enough space for an extended family of seven, and the house would comfortably accommodate two families. All the appliances were in great shape and the kitchen as well as the terrace were very well equipped. There is free wi-fi and a nice DVD library for cosy evenings by the fireside.
The scenery is unforgettable. The house is overlooking a green valley, and there is a calming sense of space. Bargemon and Seillans are a short drive or bike ride away, and other medieval villages as well as breathtaking scenery in places like Gorges du Verdon and the lake of Sainte-Croix are within an easy distance.
I should also say that communication with the friendly, reliable owners was easy and seamless. All in all, my family and I were extremely satisfied with our stay at La Bergerie and are happy to recommend the house to families with children or adult groups.
