BARGEMON

The mountain village of Bargemon is situated in the Var, Northeast of Draguignan at a height of 500 meters. For centuries this delightful mediaeval village provided inspiration to a host of famous inhabitants. Academics, alchemists, poets and painters all enjoyed the tranquillity and sheer beauty of this luxuriant Provencal hillside village. Surrounded by olive orchards, with narrow little streets, charming squares, sparkling fountains and impressive plan-trees; Bargemon will be an everlasting memory.

With just over 1,200 inhabitants Bargemon might be small but it provides all the comforts of a bigger town. For your daily needs there are a supermarket, a green grocer, baker, butcher, the Presse, and the tobacconist. Pubs, terraces, restaurants, bistro’s and pizzeria’s all add to the ambiance of this Provencal village. Galleries and boutiques are open during the season while the local community provides a varied programme of activities all year round. The doors of the library and museum are open all seasons and the Tourist office has a host of suggestions and things to do in the immediate surroundings.

There is also a local GP and a chemist; so everything is catered for. Also the mineral water spring of the Source Couchoire is worth mentioning. When needed, you will find bigger supermarkets in Fayence, Draguignan or Le Muy. As far as local markets are concerned: you will be able to find one, every day, not too far away!
