About Thomas McIntosh
I live in Sussex with my wife and our Springer Spaniel. We are both professional people. We always took our family holidays in Provence in rented accommodation. We rented a house in Bargemon for six years before deciding to buy a house in the village. Bargemon is full of charm and character with a square where one can sit and watch the world go by. Well served with restaurants, grocer, greengrocer, chemist and vineyard. We have made many friends over the years. We bought our house in 2007 and visit 4-5 times a year. We fell in love with the house as soon as we saw it. Built in the 1940s it is a three minute walk from the village. All the rooms some with balconies face South looking down the valley towards Clavier and the Mediterranean in the distance.

What makes this House unique
The townhouse was built in the 1940s. A two minute walk brings you into the centre of the village. We fell in love with the house with the ease of whether it is collecting the fresh croissants and bread in the morning, collecting that much need additional bottle of rose at lunchtime, or whether an afternoon stroll to proxy or tabac is needed. It provides great charm and period features. The appeal of Bargemon is you can do as much or as little as you like and provides the base for a perfect holiday.Split over multi-levels provides a practical and expansive living space. A rare feature of this property is its close vicinity to the Village Centre but also has an outdoor space and more importantly a swimming pool. This has a number of restaurants ranging from bistro to fine diners.

Bargemon is a Provencal village parts of which pre date Medieval times. although its most famous inhabitants are Posh and David Beckham Bargemon is more likely to attract artists and writers with its winsome charm, old stone houses, ramparts, narrow streets and shady squares with geraniums and sparkling crystal fountains. It is not for nothing that for many, Bargemon is the prettiest village in Provence -an accolade not easily earned, as there is some stiff competition in the region! There is a real sense of history in Bargemon, and it is worth paying a little time with some of the ancient buildings that grace this lovely village. There are remains of the old ramparts that once fortified Bargemon against attackers, and it is still possible to see the sites of the old prison, the Sarrasin tower and various ancient gateways to the village. There's a museum and an interesting old church to visit, and the village also has olive mills where the olive oil is squeezed from the ripe, locally grown olives. Bargemon is really just a good sized village, but it is extremely well equipped with shops and services to make life as comfortable and easy as possible for its residents and visitors. You will find a supermarket as well as local shops such as boulangeries, a bank, a pharmacy, art galleries and a good selection of excellent little restaurants. Bargemon is in a great location for sports fans and the wonderful Provencal countryside is superb for anyone who loves an active, outdoor way of life. The village has tennis courts, a swimming pool, and more swimming can be had locally in lakes and, a short distance away - the Med! Nearby there is fishing, golf, horse-riding, paragliding, cycling and wonderful walking. Don't forget Bargemon's own vineyard where grapes are cultivated for delicious local Rose, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir wines.
