Thank you so much for letting us stay in your lovely apartment. We really enjoyed ourselves, and Bargemon was just as beautiful as you said! Although the weather wasn't as good as it is supposed to be at this time of year, we still managed to get some sunshine (so we could sit on the upper terrace and enjoy some sun!) and explore the area as well. Everyone in Bargemon was also very friendly, and the kids had lots of fun practising their French in the bakery! We loved the apartment. The view out of the windows in the main bedroom and from the lounge is It had everything we needed. The terrace is great to sit on for a morning coffee or to have a glass of wine in the evening. The views are also out of this world.

Just a short note to say that we loved the apartment in Bargemon and we had a super holiday there. Your property was ideal, very well appointed, clean and it was so nice not to have to buy the little things too, like washing up liquid, salt and so on. The beds were really comfortable and so, yes, we had a super time. Joanna was very helpful and a pleasure to deal with also. Bargemon was a lovely place, just the right size with enough of a variety of very good restaurants and a couple of bars and a good boulangerie and also charcuterie. We shared the upper terrace with probably the smallest tortoise I have ever seen! It seemed to live under the shed and came out to munch on the plant life. It was very cute! So thank you for everything. Well appointed apartment. Clean. Comfortable beds. Having the terrace and wonderful views. Bargemon is a delightful place.
