About Julia Horne

The house had no name when we bought it. Eagle owls live in the cliffs behind the house calling most evenings and occasionally swoop over the house and garden. Hibou is french for owl!

Julia Horne purchased this villa in 2004

Why Julia Horne chose Bargemon

We fell in love with the views and the location. The house was renovated to be a real home from home where we could all relax and enjoy the warmth and sunshine of southern France. Eagle owls can be heard calling most evenings along the cliffs above the house. These hugh majestic birds have even been seen flying over head in the garden, hence the name Hibou (owl) Heights.

What makes this villa unique

The Balcony in front of the house gives a fantastic open feel... you become at one with the views. We eat all meals on it using one area for breakfast (sunny) and a different one for lunch (Shady) still leaving ample room for sunbathing or snoozing!

Magical & memorable !

  • 5 of 5

We have had several memorable holidays at this impressive home from home and have always found the property to be very well equipped, spotlessly clean and having excellent facilities. The location is hard to beat being quiet and peaceful yet within close range of lovely bars and restaurants. To have lunch on the balcony followed by relaxing by the pool is one of life's ultimate pleasures.

Delightful property in stunning location.

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with Hibou Heights. Very clean and tidy and fully equipped. Comfortable beds with good quality bedding. The view from the deck was fantastic and the setting was beautiful and peaceful. A short walk took us into Bargemon which is a very quaint, small Provençal town with bars, restaurants and bakeries and a very well stocked small supermarket.

We would highly recommend the property and hope to return again soon.

Beautiful villa with fantastic views.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful villa in a fantastic location. We stayed one week in June 2014. Family of 6 plus one grandparent who was able to avail of the single bedroom which gave her some privacy. The pool was a huge hit with our gang of 4 kids aged 9 to 20. Obviously the weather in June was beautiful but not overpowering. Having a car meant we were able to explore the beautiful villages and countryside. You could walk to Bargemon in about 15/20 mins but we tended to drive. With a little searching we found a great place where the teenagers could pony-trek.

The property itself really suited us and Julia was extremely helpful in helping us complete the booking. Overall, a great experience and a great holiday.

Brian, Dublin.

Stunning property in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Hibou Heights with my father, sister and 7 month old baby and we all had a fantastic break. The property is exceptional - perfectly maintained, lovely furnishings, great kitchen and the grounds and swimming pool area are wonderful. The solar heated pool was bracing, but beautifully landscaped and we spent whole days just relaxing beside it. The house is also wonderfully secluded at the top of a steep driveway, so it does feel like your own private little slice of paradise!

One of the best features is the stunning panorama out over woodland and the local villages. We spent the evenings sat out on the balcony, watching the sun set, then enjoying the lights from the villages twinkling at night as we sat eating bread and cheese bought from the nearby village of Bargemon, which is a short drive or within walking distance.

What a lovely village - beautiful cobbled streets, art galleries, good restaurants and shops with all the basics you will need. We also found plenty to do in the local area. The owner provides a handy book detailing recommendations for where to eat, local markets and attractions etc.

I'd love to come back here - the perfect place for good food and wine, rest and relaxation.

Having holidayed in France for a number of years now, this I can say is one of the best property’s we have stayed.

Beautiful quiet position with stunning views for alfresco dining both morning and night.

The property is both well-equipped and comfortable.

Visited local villages and Verdon Canyon; all a must. Returning each day to a cool relaxing swim and drinks on the decking.

Would recommend to our family and friends.

Beautiful villa with supoerb views

  • 5 of 5

We returned home last night after a wonderful 2 weeks in France.

Although the whole trip was exciting and memorable, for us the highlight was spending a week at Hibou Heights with our 3 adult children and 2 of their partners.

When we first made contact we were advised about the steep drive, I am so pleased that I was not put off. Once we had made it up the drive the reward from Hibou Heights was always worth the effort.

You have a lovely home in a stunning setting.

Ch***** made us very welcome and explained all the main functions etc.

Your home has every amenity one could ask for. My wife loves cooking and all your utensils were put to good use.

We had arrived in Bargemon on Saturday morning and had a good explore around before having a light lunch at L’Estanco where the waiter, Armand, made us feel very welcome straight away.We ate out in La Campana on the Monday and L’Estanco 3 times.

The little supermarket was well stocked and we made daily visits to the patisserie for pain au chocolats and croissants! We enjoyed the market on Thursday morning.

Our only big trip out was to the Gorges du Verdun on Wednesday which was spectacular. We stopped for coffee in Rougon and lunch in Moustierres. We were so pleased to see the famous Griffon vultures!

Four of us also made a trip to Mons which was delightful.

By the Friday night there was a full moon which only added to our sense of awe.

We had 2 close viewings of young sanglier(wild pig), firstly as we walked in to Bargemon and secondly as we heard some rummaging near our cars parked close to the gate at Hibou Heights. They were only a few feet away from the electric fence so it is worth stressing to all your guests the importance of keeping the gates closed.

We would love to return to Hibou Heights. Perhaps with a group of friends

We have returned home to leaden skies but have great memories and photos to sustain us for many months.

The medieval hillside village of Bargemon is a gastronomic centre with several delightful restaurants: my personal favourites are La Campana, where the lamb is cooked on an open fire. The Cafe du Commerce is situated on the vilage square, one can sit in the open air and watch the world go by. There are a number of shops: a supermarket, butcher, baker, wine shop, pharmacy, DIY/garden, garage. There are also museums and art galleries. The weekly market has good fruit/vegetables, bread and olives. There are many nearby vineyards which encourage tasting and offer a selection of different wines. The surrounding area is ideal for walking, cycling and horse-riding. There are golf courses locally. The spectacular Verdon Gorges are a short drive away and the seaside towns of St. Tropez and Cannes are an hour's drive.
