The entire village is classified by the French government as a protected site, and visited by many people every year, particularly during the months of the mimosas bloom in February.

This beautiful apartment is in an 18th century building which made up the later ramparts of the village. The apartment has the advantage of being off the beaten tourist path and has drive-up possibility with limited parking. There is an unobstructed view of the ocean and coast line of Cap Benat and the islands of Levant and Porquerolles, and is three kilometers from the most beautiful beaches on the coast in the Var district. Saint Tropez is 30 minutes by car. The Bay of Breganson, where President HOLLAND has his summer residence, is the local beach with parking. Bormes is four hours from Paris by TGV fast train via Marseille.

The apartment has three spacious rooms, is 60 square meters (646 square feet) and is very charmingly furnished with some antiques and and is fully-equipped. There is a new queen-size bed in the bedroom. The new couch in the living room converts to a double bed.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2003

                          About the owner: I am from Los Angeles, California. I've lived in France for 24 years and married a frenchman. I am an artist, painter and amateur musician. The apartment has a good small collection of contemporary paintings.

                          Why the Owner Chose Bormes-les-Mimosas:
                          Bormes is one of the only villages on the Cote d'Azur that is populated even during the winter and Fall. Most of the other pictoresque villages are vacation only and are totally vacant during the off season months. This is a place where there is a stable local population, not just second home people, and this was important to me.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
                          The spectacular view is always an inspriation. The apartment is well laid out and very comfortable. I go there to 'get away from it all'.
