Air-conditioned villa with heated pool in an exceptional location with stunning views across the sweeping bay of Le Lavandou towards the headland of Cap Benat and the Grandes Calanques. Built in 2014 into the hillside just 700m above the beach, and spread over 3 spacious levels, every room faces the sea and offers the highest standard of modern comfort and convenience. A heated infinity pool is set on the lower terrace overlooking the bay with a large sunbathing area and covered terrace to escape from the mid-day heat. At mid-level, large glass doors join the indoor and outdoor living spaces and a fantastic partly enclosed au -vent provides shade for comfortable outdoor dining. Built using soft pink bricks to reflect the colour of the coastal rocks and with large open panels to frame the view, what better place to sit back and allow the lovely sea breeze to cool you as you dine! A 10 minute walk downhill brings you to Aiguebelle beach, and a cycle path runs between here and nearby Cavaliere, putting an endless array of watersports and beach facilities within easy reach. The heady atmosphere of St Tropez is known all over the world; dazzling yachts, designer shops and pavement cafes buzz with life as people watch people going by! As you travel west of St Tropez the landscape becomes noticeably less populated and feels increasingly relaxed, making this the ideal choice for your holiday base. With 12km of beautiful coastline, Le Lavandou is known for its ‘12 beaches’ ranging from hidden coves to family beaches with great facilities and watersports, but they all have one thing in common; golden sands and award winning, clear blue waters. It feels like a whole world away from St Tropez, and yet is only 20 miles along the coast. 20 miles in the opposite direction, the Giens peninsula offers fantastic windsurfing in a protected bay, and a 10 minute boat trip takes you to the Ile de Porquerolles, a magical unspoilt island with fabulous seafood restaurants, white sands and turquoise waters, often likened to the Caribbean!
It is all about the sea at this villa! Fabulous sea views across the bay of Le Lavandou from every room, large terraces all with the same southerly sea views. Each morning you can enjoy watching the paragliders as you take breakfast in the lovely au-vent. Then stroll down to the beach - no need to return for lunch as there are lots of bars and restaurants to choose from. After a long lunch, perhaps return to the villa for a siesta in your air-conditioned bedroom. Then there is just time for a dip in the heated pool before cocktails on the terrace as the sun sets, then off to a seaside restaurant for dinner. We recommend you book well in advance (before your holiday) for the seafood restaurants as people come from far and wide to enjoy the fabulous fresh produce - ask us for details.

A lovely relaxing two weeks. A lovely spot and a nicely appointed villa. Lots to do in the area, although we mainly found ourselves sitting in the shade enjoying the pool and the view. Great holiday!
Review from villa house book
We like the atmosphere and pace,
"Wow! What a villa! We've really enjoyed the villa! Very functional and tasteful. The pool is fantastic and beautiful. It's a very nice area with lots of possibilities. We have enjoyed tennis in Cavalière. Dinner at 'Smash'. Visiting the island of Porquerolles, Bormes-Les-Mimosas to mention a few. We like the atmosphere and pace, people are friendly. Long dinners on the patio - just taking in the surroundings will be remembered for a long time. All service from the local team has as well been top notch.

Would definitely return!
Wonderful spacious villa with everything we needed for a lovely 2 week holiday. Recommend Le Smash restaurant and Club 55 near St Tropez. Enjoyed several barbecues on the terrace and the whole family loved the pool. Would definitely return!

Had a fabulous week in a wonderful villa. Really well-equipped with everything we needed. The weather was was gorgeous all week hence we spent a lot of time at the villa with just a few trips to the surrounding towns. Highly recommended!

Rive Bleue is by far the best - 2 week stay
We have just got home and wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time. We have stayed at many villas along the coast between Nice and St.Tropez but Rive Bleue is by far the best. It is a really well designed villa and has been finished to a really high standard. The view is amazing, and the location great for the beach and restaurants etc.
What a wonderful time we had
we stayed in your stunning villa last week with our daughters and just wanted to say what a wonderful time we had and what a wonderful place it is.
We usually sail around the area so it was a treat to have so much space and the views are just outstanding.
Never had a utility room with such an outlook! And Miele appliances too.
We will be back I am sure!
