Updated: 28-Sep-2016
Provence Villa With Swimming Pool, Terraces And Panoramic Views

A luxury villa situated on over 2.2 ha land between Grimaud and La Garde Freinet enjoys fabulous views to the hills near St Tropez. Easy access via the private gate and ample car parking.

The villa is light, airy, spacious with pool and patio area on the south side, new built 2006 in Provencal style. All bedrooms are en-suite with own terraces that enjoys views over the beautiful countryside. The view goes as far as the Chateau and the lighthouse on Cap Camerat at distance. The lounge and dining area opens onto the terrace, pool and patio. Two of the bedrooms have also direct access from terrace onto the pool area. A local English and French speaking guardian welcomes you on your arrival (if during the day or otherwise arrange access for you).

The villa is well equipped with large lounge and dining room with fire place and terrace, a fully fitted kitchen and four comfortable bedrooms, each with own bath/shower room and terrace overlooking garden and countryside. All furniture and beds are acquired new in 2012.

There is a large garden with palm and olive trees, and views over the Medieval Castle of Grimaud. A large covered terrace with outside dining table, leads onto the 5x10 m pool and its comfortable pool side sitting group for relaxing. The house is surrounded with cork oak forest and pine trees, in a quiet rural area, yet easy access from the busy St Tropez bay area.

About the Owner

We have visited this part of France for about 10 years on holidays and have enjoyed being here so much that we in 2012 bought this villa. We also have an apartment in Grimaud that we now intend to sell. We are a Norwegian/British married couple with two grown up children living in Norway. The villa has everything needed for a wonderful holiday, great weather, unspoilt countryside, cosmopolitan St Tropez and wonderful beaches. We love to walk, and there are endless trails with incredible views direct from the villa. In the villa you are away from the crowds, but only ten minutes drive away you are in the hustle and bustle of the Riviera. The hill top village Grimaud has good restaurants, as well as the villages La Garde Freinet, Cogolin, St Maxime, Gassin, Ramatuelle and St Tropez. Several good beaches may be reached in 10 minutes drive.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Jane,

I just want to thank you for your kind messages (from all of you) and the lovely gifts you left. Please pass on our thanks to everyone. It was a pleasure to have such a lovely group of people in the house for the last fortnight. I hope you have a good trip back to the UK. We'd love to see you again next year.

Many thanks Lizzy. It''s not been in for a service yet, but I guess the problem may be more of an electrical one, so an electrical engineer? Failing that, a mechanic. There are fairly simple compared to a car, so maybe a mechanic can spot something. My husband bought a socket set yesterday, so he can now take a look under the cover to see if there is a simple poor connection somewhere. Failing that, I think I could rent one or maybe a wheelchair from the chemist. Anyway, speak soon, let''s make it 4pm, and thanks for your efforts, kind regards, Jane

Marvellous stay at wonderful, peaceful villa

  • 5 of 5

We staid at La Licorne in the week of our wedding in La Garde Freinet. The house and the views are spectaculare. Fully equiped and well kept. WIFI wasn't working too well during our stay. To get to La Garde Freinet you will need a car, but this is nothing new for this region so we didn't experience this as a problem.

Communications with the owners went smoothly. We would fully recommend La Licorne.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the good review of villa La Licorne. We have now invested in a new Sat2way parabol system which gives a much better and stable broadband connection. Orange France provided our internet services and it appeared to be unstable at this location.The signals are distributed throughout the house by power lines and Wii-Fi units. We are now streaming international TV programs through Blade and Apple TV. All French programs are being transmitted on a seperate parabol.

From the Owner

Grimaud is a charmimg medieval village crowned by its Feudal castle , which was considered the guardian of the Gulf of St Tropez. The village invites to take a walk through the centuries; strolling along shady little lanes at the discovery of remarkable sites provides calm and serenity, even at the height of the season. The village has a dozen of good restaurants at choice. Both the village and the yacht harbour Port Grimaud deserves attention. In the canals of Port Grimaud you will find Venice like restaurants. Further up the valley from the villa, La Garde Freinet is one of Provence best preserved villages. The actress Jeanne Moreau formerly lived in the village, as did Anna Karina. Many artist still reside here. La Garde Freinet winds its way through dense and proud chestnut groves, where you can admire cork oaks and maritime pine trees.
