A very welcoming 'little' house

  • 5 of 5

Although it may be 'little', the house is really comfortable and has a very homely feel. It provided everything we (family of four) needed. We made particular use of the back garden and BBQ in the evening - the garden is not directly overlooked and is shaded in the afternoon/evening which is a bonus in the summer. There are a number of nice sandy beaches and coves within about 15 mins drive - most of which provide free car parking. The swimming pool is great for children and is only a couple on minutes on foot from the house. Bormes les Mimosas is a nearby and worth a visit and provides splendid views of the coastline. The house provides a great base for people who like to explore their surrounding area as it is minutes from the coast but also at the foot of the Maures Mountains. If you don't mind a car journey ( and have nerves of steel) the Gorge du Verdon, is spectacular and well worth a day trip. All in all we're happy to recommend this property to other visitors to the area. We are looking forward to returning to the house soon.

Owner's Response: Many thanks indeed to Sue and family for a very thoughtful review. we have had the little house for 20 years and it is very much our second home. The House Notes which we send to anyone who is interested suggest a day trip (a very long day trip) to the Verdun Gorge and we are delighted that you were able to make the trip; the Gorge is certainly spectacular. Nearer home a visit to the Abbee Thoronet is recommended; over the Autoroute Provencal (A.8) at gate 13 to the village of Thoronet and 2 miles further on. The Abbee is in a delightful setting and very peaceful. The beaches at La Faviere, Le Lavandou, St. Clair, Fossette Plage and Cavaliere all have parking gratuit but not I'm afraid at Cabasson and l'Essangnol beaches; parking at these beaches under the trees £6.50 (approx) for the day. Like you we think Le Lavandou and its surrounds has much to offer and we do hope you will be renting the Little House again; we have pencilled in your provisional booking! Jeremy and Anna.

Lovely little house

  • 5 of 5

It is the 5th time we have stayed here. It is convenient for many of the facilities we enjoy and well placed to visit further away.

Owner's Response: Many thanks Michael and Helena for giving us 5 Stars. We can't believe that you have stayed in the Little House on 5 occasions but 'tis true. We hope there might be more; you must ask for a discount! Jeremy and Anna.

Great little villa in a wonderful area of France

  • 5 of 5

Lovely little house with absolutely everything we needed. The children loved the swimming pool and tennis court. Close to Pins de Bormes, perfect for breakfast (and a great little market on Tuesdays). Le Faviere, Le Lavandou and Bormes village less than 5 minutes away. All three were great for evening strolls and well worth a visit.

We had a perfect two weeks and we will definitely be back.

Owner's Response: Many thanks Barnaby for taking the trouble to write a review. I think I should point out that Barnaby is our son so please disregard the 5 Stars he gives the Little House but what he says is probably fair comment. We certainly have the use of a swimming-pool and tennis court. 5 minutes to Pin de Bormes and Le Faviere yes; perhaps a little longer to the Le Lavandou sea-front and Bormes Village. Bormes les Mimosas is a hill village with magnificent views over the Med; it is considered one of the prettiest villages on the Cote d'Azur and the floral displays in every nook and cranny are magnificent. Your Mother and Father.

Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

We (four persons) felt at home immediately in this charming little house. It is well equipped and we had anything we needed. In the garden there are chairs and tables both in the front and the back of the house so we had all meals outside. Furthermore there are sun loungers on the balcony.

A reserved parking place is located in front of the house.

After returning from our excursions we used to take a bath in the big pool just a few minutes away from the house.

The owners are very friendly. We didn't meet them but we've got a large documentation by e-mail. They also got in touch with us during our stay.

The wonderful old town of Bormes-Les-Mimosas in the hills and the lively La Faviére at the harbour are reachable in a few minutes by car to play boule or enjoy ice cream. Nearby there are lots of gorgeous sandy beaches. We didn't have enough time to try them all - neither the beaches nor the ice creams.

We enjoyed our holidays very much and would like to come back to the "little house".

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Maya and Jens for your splendid and much appreciated review. Your English is well nigh perfect. I wish I could speak and write in German as you do in English. Our English friends will smile and know that you and the family bathed in the pool and didn't take a bath! We understand that your daughter particularly enjoyed the pool; it is certainly used by the residents but big enough for all. Like all large pools it is shallow at one end but deep at the other. Just right for children. If you ever wish to stay in the Le Lavandou area again we would love to have you back. Anna and Jeremy.

95 Les Mimosanes - This is a lovely property known as the Little House.

  • 5 of 5

One cannot fail to like this property, it has everything you need to make your stay memorable.

It is well equipped. There are two bedrooms and shower room on the upper level.

A well equipped kitchen and comfortable lounge.

We had the offer of 2 bikes. As we had no other transport (we travelled by plane, train and bus)

These proved very useful for shopping and for exploring the local area which had many safe cycle ways.

Walking to Le Lavandou and La Faviere was easy enough.

There are lots of pretty places to visit in the area. Obviously a car is better to go further afield but there

is a bus service to places like St Tropez, Toulon etc.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for this splendid review. Anna and I were very much concerned that you didn't intend to hire a car but you assured us that this wouldn't be a problem and so it has proved; you have clearly thoroughly enjoyed the holiday. We make no charge for the use of the bikes but must point out that they are not exactly Tour de France models! Anna and I cycle into Le Lavandou (flat all the way), enjoy a meal in one of the many restaurants and cycle back without the worry of being over the limit! We are pleased you found the kitchen well equipped; it is of course part of the Sejour and not a separate room but the layout is compact and seems to work well. Again many thanks; we are thrilled with the 5 stars! Anna and Jeremy.

Pretty 'little house' in the South of France!

  • 5 of 5

The owner, Jeremy, was very attentive from the start in ensuring we had all the information we required and our stay was comfortable.

The 'little house' is very sweet and has everything you need and more.

The property is well maintained and boasts the benefits of having a tennis court and swimming pool on site.

It's perfectly located for beautiful bike rides and sight seeing. My husband and I particularly liked to stroll along the beach at Le Lavandou and have our aperitif sat outside a lovely little fish restaurant in the port area looking out on all the amazing boats and ... people watching! (There is a very nice ice cream parlour there too).

We visited Ramatuelle, St Tropez and Grimaud which are just beautiful. Two really pretty little churches in Grimaud.

We also went to the large shopping Mall between Hyeres and Toulon as we wanted to get some new clothes for Spring; which was just about on it's way whilst we were there.

The weather was very good considering the time of year and we did have a few really sunny days with bright blue skies and sunshine.

I forgot to mention being able to lie outside the bedroom on the two loungers on the balcony with your morning coffee ... that really was a lovely treat.

I would highly recommend staying at the 'little house' to fellow travellers. The South of France is just amazing and this is a perfect place to stay and explore.

Owner's Response: Thank you Caroline and Adrian for your delightful and generous review. You did and saw so much that there is little we can add. Grimaud and Ramatuelle are splendid hill villages but so too is Bormes les Mimosas; the hill village just above the Little House about 3 miles away. The village is very attractive and renowned for its countless floral displays and Mimosa! We are so pleased that you clearly enjoyed yourselves and very much hope that you might re-visit sometime. Anna and Jeremy.

Le Lavandou is some 20 miles West of St. Tropez and a recent Sunday Times travel article suggests that the resorts to the West are more enjoyable than those to the East. The Le Lavandou beaches ( St. Clair, Fossette Plage, Cavaliere, Faviere,Cabasson and Estagnol) are particularly recommended. They are superb. A trip to the Isles d'Hyeres and especially Isle de Port Cros is a must. The backdrop to Le Lavandou is the range of Des Maures hills; these provide splendid walking opportunities and the roads/lanes by car are quite exciting!
