The property was built several hundred years ago and features stone arches, stone walls and wooden beams. It is on four floors including the Rez de Chausee but has fairly steep stairs to upper floors. There is a large terrace on the top floor giving spectacular views particularly south over the village of Clavier and towards the mountains and sea. It has an excess of character and some allowance must be made for the fact that it is a medieval building. From the Rez de Chausee which has a toilet, stairs lead to a ground floor bedroom more suitable for children and the principal two first floor bedrooms with bathroom. Stairs then lead to the second floor with kitchen, toilet/shower room, dining room and sitting room. The final stairs lead to a large day room with sink and grainer bedroom with French windows opening onto a large terrace. A five minute walk from the house takes you to the garden with a large summer kitchen, rest room and bathroom. The house is not suitable for persons who have difficulty with stairs.

About Michael Bloomfield
Retired couple whose main residence is in Speyside in Scotland and who have owned a medieval town house for over 30 years in Bargemon, Provence. With four children, we purchased the house in Bargemon over 35 years ago when based in Brussels and now spend some time there in the Spring and Autumn.
Michael Bloomfield purchased this House in 1970
Why Michael Bloomfield chose Bargemon
We wanted a medieval hill-top village in Provence within an hour's drive of the sea but also close enough to the skiing slopes. The village is easily accessed being an hour's drive from Nice airport. It is a perfect Provencal village with stunning views and a lovely village swimming pool open during the summer months. The village is thriving with weekly markets similar to the surrounding villages. There is a music festival each year with concerts in several of the surrounding towns and villages.
What makes this House unique
The property is situated on the ramparts of the village with stunning views south over Clavier down to the coast. On the top floor there is a large terrace. It is a two minute walk to the central square, cafes, restaurants, shop and boulangerie. The village swimming pool also has stunning views over the valley. The property has a lovely two terraced garden within a five minute walk with a summer kitchen and toilet facilities.
