In Biggles Foreign Legionnaire, the Villa Mimosa was the residence of lawyer Jules Raban in the town of Zebrit. It served as the local headquarters of the war mongering syndicate and the base for the recruitment of deserters from the French Foreign Legion, which had a training centre in the same town. Biggles and Ginger were brought to the Villa Mimosa when they were talent-spotted by Sergeant Voudron as potential recruits for the syndicate. Later, Marcel Brissac was kidnapped and held captive in the villa. Towards the end of the book, the villa was raided by the French police led by Captain Joudrier. Marcel was freed and the syndicate members in the villa, including Raban himself, were arrested.
