About The Owner
We first discovered Bormes Les Mimosa in the late 1990s when we rented the Old Chateau for a family holiday. We kept coming back, renting the same place until finally, when offered the opportunity to purchase what some people have described as the most beautiful villa and the most exquisite garden in Bormes, we bought a home here. The Villa was built around 1900 by the same person who went on to build the Grand Hotel which literally next door. Our extensive gardens which had originally belonged to the Old Chateau, now became a botanical paradise for the hotel guests in the early 20th century. When the hotel was sold by the then proprietor of L' Orangerie, he retained the gardens for private use. We have been restoring the gardenssince 2007, reconstructing the paths, the stone walls and escaliers, clearing and replenishing the flower beds. hard work but a labour of love.

Why The Owner chose Bormes-les-Mimosas
We chose Bormes because it is a beautiful village and, and as for our house, we literally we literally fell in love with it. It is a handsome period structure with spacious grounds which are tranquill & private and yet only minutes walk to the heart of the old village which has great restaurants, interesting shops, galleries and incredibly beautiful little streets and gardens. It is a place to enjoy not just in the summer season but all through the year and we wanted to live in the heart of the old village where we could walk to everything, get to know people and not have to use a car all the time.
