About Isabelle Regent/Parmentier
This is our family home in Bormes...we are 3 sisters; I am the oldest and work as a stylist, and marketing head in textiles and I am 48 years old. The second is 45 years old and is in charge of a health centre up north, and the last is 43 years old and is an experimental pharmacology researcher in Philadelphia in the United States. We gather with our husbands and children in Bormes every year for lots of fun. The house is spacious and has 3 levels, which allows for a certain amount of privacy. The pool is lovely, protected from the wind, and is perfectly situated with a breathtaking view! The house was built in the 1920s like a gazebo overlooking the valley just 2 steps from the village. It was built on a vegetable garden of a 15th century monastery, which is why we can still find in the garden benches and stone staircases from the monks as well as many old olive trees. The garden has about 15 terraces linked together by staircases that descend to a walkway and a river...
My husband sails; the islands of Port Croc, Porquroles and Levant are easily accessible (by shuttles from Le Lavandou or by motorboat rental in 15 minutes). We arrive in an hour and twenty minutes with our trimaran sailboat 'Astus' and it is a pleasant change of scenery. The scuba-diving club of Bormes is renowned because of the nature reserves on the islands. There is also a tennis club in Bormes and Le Lavandou. The area is perfect for bicycle riding: the Babaou pass behind the house and the stunning road of ridges is rarely used and overlooks the entire coast at 300 metres of altitude...from there we can see the Hyère peninsula and the entire Saint-Tropez bay—it's splendid! It starts just 400 metres from the house. There are also great hiking trails that are set up by the office of tourism in Bormes.
Isabelle Regent/Parmentier purchased this villa in 1980
Why Isabelle Regent/Parmentier chose Bormes-les-Mimosas
The area is ideal: it is just 30 minutes from Saint-Tropez by Cogolin (no traffic!) and 5 minutes from the beaches of Lavandou or Bormes, such as the famous beach of Brégançon (fort of the president of France)...all of the beaches to the west are rugged and unconstructable...l'Estagnol Beach, Tahiti beach, Plage du duc de Luxembourg. The sand is white and very fine with crystal clear water, and the beach faces the southernmost French islands.
What makes this villa unique
a view, and nature
Close to the village, the Lavandou beaches, and the Saint-Tropez beaches
The location faces the Golden Islands
