Overview

Pool Modern Ideal for Kids Laptop Friendly Workspace

A gorgeous retreat in Bormes-les-Mimosas, Cote d'Azur, Villa Compassio offers the perfect holiday escape with beautiful, stylish interiors and sublime gardens and terraces for you to enjoy. This one-of-a-kind villa is located in a hilly residential area, with six bedrooms and four bathrooms, offering plenty of space for a group of twelve guests. 

Designed with the South African philosophy of Ubuntu in mind, the entire villa has been carefully curated to provide a harmonious environment for groups and families, with an atmosphere of togetherness that weaves through every corner of the living spaces. 

As you step inside, natural stonework, glass, concrete and wood all work in delicate harmony to enhance the simple, timeless architecture. Built over two levels, the main living, daytime spaces are on the ground floor, with the bedrooms downstairs. 

A large revolving front door guides you into the villa’s bright and airy living space. Open plan, you can meander between each area, enjoying the proximity of your friends and family, yet still embracing moments of privacy when you need. There is a fully equipped kitchen, pantry and bar, leading onto a social dining room and fantastic living room. The whole room boasts a backdrop of vast sliding windows that open up to the terrace and create a constant connection to the outdoors. With a hanging fireplace and furniture that looks like it has been pulled from a design magazine, Villa Compassio will give you plenty of inspiration for interior design changes back home! 

Downstairs, each of the bedrooms is a good size, with two en-suites and two-family bathrooms between them. With a backdrop of pine trees and the blue azure of Gaou Bay, out each window, you can wake up everyday and immerse yourself in this beautiful setting, with a covered terrace outside the rooms that leads out to the garden and pool.

Outside, the large terrace stretches the entire length of the house, with a lounge corner and plenty of space to barbecue and dine al-fresco. East-facing, the views perfectly frame the sunrise each morning, so you can settle down with a cup of coffee and get ready for the day. The garden boasts a heated swimming pool, wooden bar and pétanque court, all overlooking the endless lawn and sheltered by palm trees.

The beautiful Villa Compassio is located in the beautiful hilly residential area of Bormes-les-Mimosas in the Cote d'Azur. It’s a steep drive up to the villa but it is well worth it, with gorgeous views of the surrounding landscapes and a backdrop of pine trees and the blue azure of Gaou Bay.

The bakery, tennis courts and a private beach with a restaurant are literally a five-minute walk from the villa, so you can all come and go as you please. You will be able to pick up groceries in either Bormes-les-Mimosas or in the supermarkets close to Le Lavandou.

Bormes-les-Mimosas is best known for its pretty bougainvillea decorated stone houses, after all it is said to be one of the most flower-filled villages of France. It’s a beautiful old village and it has everything you need here from craft market and tourist office to restaurants, shops and a bank.

The coastal area of Le Lavandou lies at the foot of the Massif des Maures and used to be a small fishing port in a bay which extends over 12km along the Mediterranean. Destroyed in 1944 and rebuilt after the war, it has become a popular tourist destination with a huge marina lined with fishing boats and international yachts. The fishermen sell their catch in the market every morning and the Thursday farmers market has plenty of fresh local produce. There is a lively summer nightlife here with bars, night clubs and casinos as well as quieter restaurants and cafes.

Le Lavandou has twelve beautifully maintained and individually named fine sanded beaches with crystal clear waters where you can swim, paddle board and kayak. Indeed, the quality of the seabed, water and beaches has attracted many awards making the area a paradise for divers and lovers of water sports. A popular choice for visitors is the many boat trips from Lavandou up the coastline towards Brégançon or Saint-Tropez and daily twenty-minute shuttles to the enchanting Iles D’Or, each island heavenly but with a distinct personality.

Region

The Provençal way of life is one that’s deeply tempting for anyone who’s been feeling the need to get away from it all. This is a place where the Mediterranean weather turns fields of corn and lavender into picture-perfect backdrops, where you can sip your locally bought wine and enjoy the landscapes before heading out and tackling them head-on with a range of great activities for families, groups of friends and adventurous foodies. Better yet, our range of villas in Provence and chateaux and holiday homes in the Côte d’Azur make the perfect base to explore this enchanting region!

Villa Compassio is a brilliant choice for a family holiday in the South of France, from long days on the beach, to boat trips and family barbecues at the villa, you can rest assured this will be a family trip you will remember for years to come.

The local areas of Bormes-les-Mimosas and Le Lavandou offer a full range of activities for kids with most activities centring on the beach and water sports interspersed with cycling, horse riding and hiking.

Le Lavandou boasts twelve beautifully maintained and individually named fine sanded beaches. La Grande Plage de Lavandou is the central beach of the coastal town, gently sloping into the sea, making it safe and fun for kids to enjoy! For a break from the sea, try Mini Golf Exotique du Lavandou.

At the southern end of Bormes-les-Mimosa, Plage de Cabasson is another lovely family friendly beach with crystal clear calm water, coves to explore, a small summer pizzeria, picnic tables under the trees, shower, playground and toilets. From the shore kids will love the views of the Brégançon fort, dreaming up stories and adventures of the goings on at the fort!

A firm family favourite are the fabulous boat trips along the coast from Le Lavandou and to the golden islands. Kids will love the ten-minute ferry trip from Hyères to the storybook magic of the island of Porquerolles where they can hire bikes, windsurf, paddle board, or take a sailing lesson.
