Cap Benat

Bormes les Mimosas, Lavandou area


This exclusive 180 sq. m villa, like a ship made of stone and glass, is perched on the Var region cliff road, facing the Mediterranean and the Iles du Levant. It’s in one of the most beautiful settings of the French Riviera, the Domaine du Gaou Benat on Cap Benat, a private residential complex whose unique architecture fits in perfectly with the nature around it…all the villas on the site are built in Bormes stone. The property benefits from an exceptional natural environment: cork oaks, strawberry trees, pine trees and mimosa, which provide a screen of greenery, ensuring privacy, peace and quiet. The beach is 20 minutes away on foot, and 2 km by road.

The villa has a lovely 1,500 sq. m landscaped garden. In order to take full advantage of the sweeping view of the sea, a 11x5 salt-water swimming pool was installed on the roof, surrounded by a vast terrace solarium.

The villa is set up on two levels, with the lower level reserved for the bedrooms. Another large terrace encircles the upper level, a living area in its own right, bathed in an ocean of greenery.

Upper level:

• Living and dining area prolonged by the terrace

• Fully equipped kitchen opening on to the living area, and also looking onto the terrace

• Laundry room

• Toilets

Lower level:

• Bedroom 1: master suite, queen-size bed, ensuite bathroom (bathtub, shower and toilets)

• Bathroom (shower and bathtub) between bedrooms 2 and 3

Household linen, kitchen and bath towels are provided. The beds will be made up just before you arrive. You’ll also have some surprises in store to welcome you: you’ll find toiletries in the bathrooms and a little gourmet gift basket in the kitchen. Other services are also available on demand when you reserve.

The villa is located 6 km south of Le Lavandou and 4 km from the port of Bormes-les-Mimosas. The closest beach is the one at the Bay of Gaou, 2 km by road and 1 km via the footpath. The Fort de Bregancon is only about 10 km away. You’ll find both stores and restaurants just 2 km from the villa.

At the heart of the Var on the Cote d’Azur, facing the golden islands and at the foot of the Maures Massif, Bormes les Mimosas boasts extraordinary flora, thanks to an optimal climate and plenty of sunshine, plants and flowers grow in abundance.

Said to be one of the most beautiful sites in the Var, the medieval village of Bormes-les-Mimosas is not to be missed by those who love old stone and are passionate about history. One of the charms of Bormes les Mimosas is its coastal area and the sense of wildness it exudes. Creeks and beaches with fine sand stretch for more than 22km, facing the golden islands, from Levant and Port Cros to the fort of Brégançon.
