Design by Edward and Margot Jones – Location de vacances
Within one hour of Nice and Toulon Airports, Villa Jones is set in the hills above the village of Bargemon in the Haut Var. The surrounding landscape of olive groves and woodland has spectacular views south towards the Mediterranean and north to the Col du Bel Homme. The villa offers total privacy.
The south facing villa was designed and built by Edward & Margot Jones as a holiday house for their family. The design responds directly to the man-made topography of stepped terraces formed by dry stonewalls used for the cultivation of olives. The house is long in plan and narrow in section, open to the south and closed to the north, giving all rooms the benefit of the view and generous cross ventilation. The monopitched pantile roof and stuccoed block walls reflect the vernacular tradition. With thick walls (and radiators for winter) the house is comfortably insulated in both summer and winter. Living areas inside and out are spacious: large dining, living, kitchen and double height loggia (with barbeque), 60 metre long pergola and 14 metre salt system pool with shower. The length of the house is accentuated by the positioning of the swimming pool (enclosed as a court) and annexe building to the east. House pool and annexe are then drawn together into a linear composition by the imposition the long pergola on the south side. The design of the house anticipates the development of the garden as its natural corollary.
Accommodation: In plan the villa is arranged over two levels with 4 double bedrooms upstairs sleeping 8 people – one large bedroom with bathroom en suite and three smaller rooms with showers en suite. Two of the bedrooms have king sized beds and the other two have twin beds which can be converted into doubles. Baby items include: Cot, Moses basket (both with linen), highchairs, playpen and swings. Table tennis, croquet and boules courts, Amp/DVD and projector and Wifi are all provided.
