Within one hour of Nice and Toulon Airports, Villa Jones is set in the hills above the village of Bargemon in the Haut Var. The surrounding landscape of olive groves and woodland has spectacular views south towards the Mediterranean and north to the Col du Bel Homme. Excursions to the sea, the Gorges du Verdon, lakes, Thoronet Abbey and skiing are all within an hour’s drive.
The villa was designed and built by Edward & Margot Jones as a holiday house for their family. South facing, it is long in plan and narrow in section, giving all rooms the benefit of the view and generous cross ventilation. With its thick walls (and radiators for winter) the house is comfortably insulated in both summer and winter. Because the lemon tress are brought inside to the dining room for the winter there are no rentals from Dec 1st to April 1st.
Living areas inside and out are spacious: large dining, living, kitchen and double height loggia (with BBQ), 60 metre long pergola, and a 14 metre salt system pool with shower. The pool can be enclosed with 'afnor' approved fencing which is easily removed and stowed away. Pets welcome. The villa offers total privacy.
