Bastide de la Poesie is a sympathetically renovated 16th century Plan de la Tour Farmhouse rental on the outskirts of the village. Set in 95 acres of beautiful countryside with forest, vines, olive groves and a stream, the country surrounds make it hard to believe you are just 25 minutes from the hustle and bustle of St Tropez. This is a rustic French farmhouse with pool, furnished in a traditional style and the impressive double height living room with a huge stone pillar, open fireplace and wooden mezzanine adds real character.
Plan de la Tour has many shops, cafes, restaurants and a colourful weekly market. St Tropez is just 25 minutes away with its choice of sophisticated cafes and restaurants. The chic Club 55 on Pampelonne beach, a 4 km stretch of golden sand, is only 16 miles from the Bastide. There are many delightful medieval villages waiting to be explored inland from this French farmhouse with pool.
The perfect house for a group of friends or a family get-together, with lots of space inside and out. The villa sits in the middle of a wonderful private wine-growing country estate. A traditional family house, it has an old-fashioned charm and a rustic country kitchen: if you want a modern and trendy kitchen this villa is not for you. The nearest village, Plan de La Tour, is just 3 miles down the road. The village boasts a handful of restaurants /bistros and cafes, and a weekly street market ... why not join the locals for a game of boules in the late afternoon?
The delight about this area is that you can be on the beach within a 15-20 minute drive. To go to St Tropez avoiding the traffic jams you can take the local ferry across the gulf from St Maxime, which leaves every half hour.
