Incredible house, lovely grounds & picturesque French village

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this property was excellent. The view, the classy french rustic interior of the house, the well kept gardens, the pool and the picturesque village of Bargemon just up the road.

Joanna the property manager was also the most helpful people we came across during our stay in Provence.

All-round a fantastic house which I'd thoroughly recommend.

Thanks to all.

We had a great time - comfy beds, good baths/showers, lovely pool and all beautifully clean.

  • 4 of 5

Perfect for a family holiday - not smart but comfortable and nicely decorated. The pool was lovely and there was lots of outside space (a little on the scruffy side but fine). Perfectly situated outside Bargemon and very quiet - the walk up to the town was short but steep so good for working up an appetite. There were a few minor niggles eg. light bulbs needed changing and the outside light for the top terrace was broken. I would also expect more in the way of essentials such as silver foil,washing up brush/pads,washing powder,loo roll in all the bathrooms,a few extra bin bags etc. Generally in other villas, the rule is to replace anything that runs out. These are minor quibbles but annoying and so easy to remedy. Overall however, I would recommend this villa.

Owner's Response: The house is furnished as a family home and we hope that guests find it comfortable and inviting. Unfortunately as the season progresses, things can break and light bulbs inside and out may need replacing. These should be checked by the cleaning team, who will be reminded about the need to ensure that all are working prior to guests arrival. Guests are encouraged to call the house manager in the case of any such problems. I am unsure what is meant by scruffy terraces - not a comment we have received before. Although due to the high temperatures experienced this year, there was a ban on watering systems and I suspect the terraces and surrounding flower beds did not look their best. As the house is self-catering we do not supply tin foil etc. All bathrooms have a toilet roll on arrival, and a welcome pack is provided. Joyce Hibell Owner

Beautiful House in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week at LMB. Three families were able to stay comfortably with all the bedrooms and washrooms. The pool was used extensively as was the ping pong table. We loved walking up the path to Bargemon each morning to get our fresh baguettes and fruit. The people in Bargemon were all very friendly, made us feel welcome and even enjoyed helping us with our French. LMB was an oasis of style and comfort and we enjoyed every minute of it. Sad to leave!

Owner's Response: We have stayed at the house many times over the years with our own family and have many happy memories. We have furnished and equipped the house as a family home, not just a rental property and it is great to hear that other families have enjoyed it as much as we have. Joyce Hibell Owner

a small family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed outstanding grounds and a setting providing a true sense of privacy and beautiful outside dining on terrace that could accommodate 9 people comfortably. There was a well-appointed kitchen with attractive cookware, dishes, and glassware. Five comfortable bedrooms and a large swimming pool. In addition, there were outdoor games and equipment such as a ping pong table and boule as well as indoor games for all ages including a collection of dvds. We enjoyed reliable internet service. There is a short but uphill walk to the village to pick up morning croissants! The location is superb for traveling to important sites throughout Var and beyond.

Owner's Response: We have tried to anticipate the things that most people would like to find in a holiday home, but are always happy if people are able to suggest any additions which may increase their enjoyment of their holiday. We are lucky that the grounds are extensive and relatively flat - ideal for children. Joyce Hibell Owner

A great family holiday enjoyed by all.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely property in a brilliant location with spectacular views. Swimming pool was really good and enjoyed by all. The village offers a range of good restaurants and you can walk to the village even though it is a little steep. We did it several times and coming back is easy, downhill all the way. Good shops in the village and the small supermarket is very well stocked.

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Very rare that the pictures and descriptions match reality. In this case reality exceeded expectations. The house and grounds were beautifully presented. The property is well located in a peaceful valley only a few minutes drive from the lovely village of Bargemon. Perfect spot for a relaxing family vacation. We will definitely be back next year!
