Property description

DESCRIPTION OF THE HOUSE . This charming home is a typical 19th century village home on three floor levels with a narrow, winding stairway inside. It is 90 square meters. The house is furnished with antique furniture. (if you are looking for a “three star lodging” our house is not for you!).

If you are looking to live like the French live in a small provencal village, then it is the right place. Five persons can stay comfortably in the house. It has four bedrooms (one bedroom is locked for our private storage), a living room , a kitchen and two bathrooms. It has also electricity, hot and cold water, shuttered windows and a red earthen tile floor.

Bormes as well as our home are not a place for person with limited mobility. The home has three floors connected with a typical village tile winding stairway. Bormes is a hill village.

Bakery: the bakery is two minutes from the house and has hot fresh bread and croissants everyday starting at 7:00 a.m.

Food and local wines: are all excellent!

Art: Rene Terras and his wife Vivette Terras are good friends of ours. Rene makes beautiful pottery, say “bonjour” from us if you go visit their shop in Pierrefeu.

There is a lot more to do: swim in the Mediterranean sea in the summer, only 15 minutes away by car, play golf at Valcros, hike the hills above Bormes, visit the islands and so on. You will find more information in our ACTIVITIES IN AND AROUND BORMES-LES-MIMOSAS that we leave in the living-room.

Finally, a housekeeper will stop by the day of your arrival to check if everything is fine. She will be your local contact and clean the house at the end of your stay.

Owner info

About the owner: I am French, married to an American. I live half in France and in Washington DC. I am now retired. I love to read, travel, spend time with family and friends.

Why the Owner Chose Bormes-les-Mimosas:
This is a village home where I spend vacation with my family as a child. I love the beautiful village of Bormes.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Bormes is an unique historic hill village, known for its beauty, its flowers, its proximity to the sea.It is a 10 minutes drive from the beautiful sandy beaches of Estagnol and Pellegrin ornate with pine trees for shade. It is a 10 minutes drive from the quaint Le Lavandou with its port, its shops and gorgeous sandy beaches. The beaches are beautiful and in the summer the water is very warm. In the winter, the village is very quiet, it is a good time to walk around and read.
