This luxury villa close to St Tropez is perfectly positioned at the edge of the village of La Croix Valmer, only a short walk to a few pavement cafes, restaurants and small shops. Dating from 1896, careful restoration and respect and regard for authenticity have created a villa which is a delightful blend of modern and traditional.
The villa is furnished with both antique and contemporary furniture, which alongside warm Mediterranean colours and natural fabrics create a charming home. The wisteria-covered terrace is delightful for an evening aperitif, or you can dine in the more formal 'winter kitchen'.
The coast is under 2 miles away. A 25-minute walk leads to the golden sands and a choice of beach cafes along the bay at La Croix Valmer. Watersports, golf and polo are all within reach. There are numerous places to visit, from the delights of St Tropez, several popular beaches including Pampelonne with its chic Club 55 or the quieter pace of life at many medieval hilltop villages.
What I especially love about this house is its large reception room, which is decorated with great flair. I also like the fact that the house sits in its own secluded walled garden. It's within walking distance of the centre of the village of La Croix Valmer, which is a great advantage for going out in the evenings for a drink or dinner at one of the restaurants, and you won't have the hassle of parking when visiting the very popular Sunday market. For a visit to the beach Gigaro Plage is a five-minute drive away: here you have several restaurants such as the Heraclee, La Salamander and Le Refuge to name but a few. Remember to book your table in the morning if you want to have lunch as they fill up quickly.
