Why Judy Stacey chose Bargemon
Bargemon has all the elements we were looking for: style, food, restaurants, views, friendly people, arts and culture, outdoor living and easily accessible from Nice airport.
What makes this Apartment unique
Living in South Africa where we are used to space, the high ceilings and “airiness” of this apartment were particularly appealing. Direct access to a sizeable outdoor terrace and garden were also non-negotiable, a feature so often missing in most typical village houses. A two minute walk from fresh bread and croissants was also a key decision factor. This house is a comfortable home from home, with many special touches.

Excellent property for two adults or family of 4.
Lovely terraces for eating and relaxing.well equipped kitchen . Sun in all the right places!
Perfect location; very well equipped and comfortable.
A very enjoyable and relaxing two weeks in Bargemon. Location of Gite is perfect for walking to local restaurants and shops. Parking available right outside the front door (had to park a bit further away on one occasion - evening before market day).
Excellent accommodation and well equipped. Special mention to be made of Kitchen which offers very good cooking facilities and good quality equipment. The house and furnishings is very comfortable, so that cooking a nice meal and staying in to relax offered an occasional alternative to visiting the local restaurants.
Bargemon is well situated for exploring the surrounding countryside or the coast and there is some spectacular scenery to be seen within the distance of a day trip (information provided by Gite owner).
The apartment was perfect
The apartment was perfect - spacious and comfortable and we were particularly impressed with how well equipped the kitchen was. Joanna the manager couldn't have been more helpful. And we thought Bargemon was great with a lovely atmosphere - we made a lot of use of the excellent supermarket, bar/café and restaurants.
So glad you enjoyed our kitchen! Being foodies, we like to be able to make coffee and cook as though we were at home, even when on holiday! The supermarket has since been extended, so has a wider selection now and I noticed there is also an Epicerie in the village, along with the two Boulangeries.
Charming in every way
What a charming apartment in a beautiful quaint historical village. The inside area of the apartment is very spacious and despite being on the 2nd level there is also a significant sized multi level outside area. It is close to restaurants, a proxi and boulangeries; and many other places of interest such museums and and art studios aplenty.
We enjoyed many walks within and surrounding the village itself and there were frequent activities held in various locations around the village though primarily in the town square - a place where locals and visitors mingle. The atmosphere in the village is wonderful and we were very quickly welcomed as locals.
This lovely old (in the nicest sense of the word) apartment has many personal touches which made it very homely and we thoroughly enjoyed our month long stay with the intention of returning in the future.

Just a short note to say that we loved the apartment in Bargemon and we had a super holiday there. Your property was ideal, very well appointed, clean and it was so nice not to have to buy the little things too, like washing up liquid, salt and so on. The beds were really comfortable and so, yes, we had a super time. Joanna was very helpful and a pleasure to deal with also.
Bargemon was a lovely place, just the right size with enough of a variety of very good restaurants and a couple of bars and a good boulangerie and also charcuterie.
We shared the upper terrace with probably the smallest tortoise I have ever seen! It seemed to live under the shed and came out to munch on the plant life. My wife has some pictures on her I-Pad so I will get her to e-mail me them and pass them on to you if you like. It was very cute! So thank you for everything.
Da muss man hin!!!
