Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Le Lavandou
3 Bedrooms in charming bastide, sea view, short walk to beach, beautiful garden
180 degrees stunning view of the sea and the islands – les îles d'or, “the golden isles'... l'ile du Levant, Port Cros, Bagaud, Porquerolles. The eyes are dragged to the sea from every room of what is said to be the most romantic villa in Aiguebelle and Le Lavandou... romantic with its 'rotonde' flanking the main part of the house, romantic with ancient majestic umbrella pine trees shading the terrace from the generous Mediterranean sun, romantic also for the soothing colour of the lawn and shutters.
The house is a simple and elegant bastide, tastefully refurbished. It opens to the sea through large curved double doors. Between the bedrooms at the West-end square tower, and the kitchen at the East-end 'rotonde', a spacious living room and a sitting room with fireplace, both with wooden beams, open on the terrace and lawn overlooking the sea. The tiled pool on the side also overlooks the sea from a large terrace in part shade of the trees.

We knew this part of the coast for its gorgeous beaches ('Aiguebelle' means 'beautiful water'), wilderness and fragrant vegetation, and were looking for a house with a view, within walking distance of the sea.
We simply fell under the charm...
The view is breathtaking when you open the gate and walk in the garden, when you walk in the master bedroom ... Falling asleep to the faint sound of waves and singing nightingales, waking up to the song of birds and the glittering sea, enjoying every meal in the shade of majestic pine trees or on the lawn in front of the sea... Walking through exhuberant nature to more cute beaches than you care to visit, coming home to rinse sea salt in the pool, stepping on cool old tiles in the spacious and luxurious rooms... Totally irresistible!!
Beyond the beautiful property, the 'Lavandourains' and 'Bormeens' are so welcoming that we felt at home from day one. A bunch of 'bons vivants' enjoying their tasty and healthy mediterranean cuisine and refreshing 'rose' wine.
Beyond the property and the people, every direction takes you to beauty; North to the wild and rolling hills of the Var backcountry, East to the bay of St Tropez, West to the domains and wineries of Cotes de Provence, and South to the sea and prestine Islands, of course! I cannot think of a place that offers a more preserved and voluptuous environment.
5' walk to the cutest beach...
Elegant bastide with lots of charm...
