All the villas in the estate have been built using dry stones from Bormes-les-Mimosas quarries, and they all blend into the landscape.
The villa is ideally located just below a former semaphore tower. Its dominant position offers a unique panoramic view over one of the most beautiful coasts of the Riviera.
The beautiful Provencal village of Bormes-les-Mimosas is at short distance from the house and Le Lavandou, a larger town with shops and nice restaurants, is a 15 minutes' drive. There is also a small hamlet called La Faviere that is at short walk down (30 minutes) from the villa that has a sandy beach, small shops and a cafe.

The villa offers total privacy within its private gardens, 4,000 sqm of private lush greenery, while benefiting from lots of facilities of the domain on which it sits (e.g. security guards, tennis courts, private beach, small harbour, heliport, etc.).
The entire property has been built on various levels ensuring privacy for guests and has plenty of open spaces thus offering bright interiors which have been furnished and decorated to a very high standard.

The open-plan sitting room, with white leather sofas and armchairs, and a dining area to seat up to 14 guests, has floor to ceiling sliding doors opening onto a large partly covered terrace overlooking the swimming pool.
