About Judy Bird
No. 21 is owned by Judy and Trevor, an English couple living in South Africa along with 5 long haired dachshunds and 2 rescue dogs. Both have a love of the outdoors, running, cycling, healthy living and particularly culinary experiences! The property was purchased in January 2011 fulfilling Judy’s lifelong dream to have a home in a small, intimate, picturesque village in the South of France, with access to good food, fresh produce, culture and breath-taking scenery. No. 21 is furnished with antiques and memories of Judy’s family life in the UK.
Judy Bird purchased this Apartment in 2011
Why Judy Bird 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.

Really lovely base for a relaxing holiday in Provence
This was a lovely apartment in the heart of a lovely village. The accommodation was full of personal touches that made it a perfect and felt like a home from home. Very easy to have a perfect start to the day by walking to the boulangerie for bread, croissants and other treats and stopping for a coffee and to watch the world go by in Bargemon's charming square and then home for breakfast in the sun on the terrace.
We had some great meals out in the village - La Campana and Maitre Blanc are both recommended - but the flat was also a good place to cook and use some of the lovely local ingredients.
Bargemon itself is a gem and although quite small there seemed to be plenty going on. We had good fun exploring the area, Fayence was a favourite as was swimming and rafting in the Gorge de Verdon.
Everyone was really friendly and we'd really recommend both this flat and the area.
Perfect Provancial stay
It was a romantic, perfect stay in a underful, well equiped appartment, could not wish for more
A pretty apartment in a fantastic location
This is the second time we have stayed in this apartment. It is decorated in a charming, homely style. The kitchen has excellent appliances and opens into a delightful outside space with 2 terraces, each having garden furniture.
The location of the apartment is fantastic. It is a couple of minutes walk from the village centre which has several restaurants and a square with a cafe where you can sit and watch village life. Bargemon is also handy for the riviera and Judy recommended a trip to St. Maxine and ferry across across to St Tropez which is a great day out.
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.
