About the property

5 Bedroom detached villa to sleep 12 near St. Tropez

Le Rayol is situated west of St. Tropez on a beautiful stretch of unspoiled coastline. The four star hotel Bailli de Suffren overlooks the beach and provides excellent beach side dining.

The villa is 200m from the beach along a quiet road and path. It has a large terrace for outside entertaining and a well established private garden, a basement games room and swimming pool.

The villa has two levels the upper level has four double bedrooms each with en suite shower room and private balcony. All rooms are air conditioned and overlook the terraced garden.

The lower level has a living room furnished in 'art Deco' style leading to a large balcony and banquet style table that sits 12 and a stainless steel gas BBQ with rotisserie and single hob. The kitchen is new and modern with all the usual equipment and an espresso machine. On this level there is a bunk room consisting of 4 single beds each with their own beach style locker there is a bathroom adjacent and a TV Room.

For single week stays add two hundred pounds: The villa is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, there are wonderful walks in the surrounding area and hills and dedicated cycling paths along the coast .

The local village is a ten minute walk away with restaurants, post office, boulangerie, newsagent, a grocery shop and other convenience stores. In season the village hosts a market for local traders every Friday.

For the teenager there is evening entertainment at the beach cafe disco, the Tropicana in nearby Canadel. For the nature lovers the villa is a few minutes walk from the Domaine du Rayol Botanical Gardens where summer concerts are held.

In nearby Le Lavandou one can catch a short ferry ride to the beautiful Islands of Port Cros and Porquerolles.

Water sports including skiing, wake boarding, jet skis etc. are available at the nearby village of Cavaliere.

The villa is just a two minute walk to the four star Bailli de Suffren hotel which provides wonderful beachside dining.

Perfect Stay

My family had the most wonderful week at Villa Mimosa. It is well equipped with beautiful views. We enjoyed family meals on the patio and loved the pool. The location is perfect.

My husband and I had a wonderful time staying at this beautiful villa. Excellent location, just 2 mins walk to the lovely white sandy beach and 5 mins drive to the local shops. The accomodation was extrememly clean, all the bedrooms were very spacious with en suits. Downstairs was a large bedroom ideal for children. Beautifully French decorated with a magnificent marble staircase. Great modern kitchen with everything you could need. Fabulous large outdoor area for entertaining and a terraced swimming pool to cool off.

We spent three nights at Villa Mimosa with 6 friends and could have easily stayed a week or more. A car for transport is definitely recommended. There are many great restaurants close by.

Villa Mimosa was the pinnacle of our European holiday, it had a lovely friendly feel and we highly recommend it.

Villa Mimosa is a lovely villa - very convenient for all amenities (shops, market, restaurants, buses, beaches etc), yet on a quiet residential street. Sitting out on the terrace with the kids happy splashing in the pool - it really doesn't get any better. We did spend a lot of time as well on the beach which is only a short walk away.

The villa is newly decorated and appointed. It's very spacious, comfortable, and is described accurately in the listing description. The kids bunk room is lovely, a 'good fun' room. Most of the bedrooms have terraces and there is a lovely dining terrace off the main living room.

The owners couldn't have been more helpful and pointed us in the right direction to the local restaurants and beaches.

The place has a very genteel feel to it. It seems to have avoided the excesses of other places on the French Riviera.

It's not a big place, it's easy to reach anywhere in the town on foot. There is a lovely walk along the old railway track which leads you to several of the beaches along the coast. It's also a good base for exploring further afield..into St.Tropez to the East or Toulon to the West.

I would definitely recommend Rayol as a wonderful, relaxing holiday destination, and Villa Mimosa is the place to stay.
