About the Owner

I live in the North of England and fell in love with the Var the very first time I visited. The area enjoys a wonderful climate and I love having such a varied choice of markets, restaurants and beaches to choose from all within easy reach of the house. I have always wants to spend as much time as possible in France since studying French at university. Having a good knowledge of French has been a great help with managing the house in France. I visited many other parts of France before finally having the opportunity to visit the Var in 2001 and never looked back! Having gone back to school to study interior design this time, I have found this area very inspiring as it has several good brocantes/flea markets within easy reach of the house, the problem is always working out how to get it all home! I have very much enjoyed making the house feel like a real home that has had much thought and love put into it. I have 4 boys, all now grown up and they love the outdoor lifestyle in the South of France and it is so nice to spend time together at the house, enjoying the pool, the beaches and of course being able to head into St Tropez at a moment's notice!

Unbelievably perfect

  • 5 of 5

We have just had a week in this lovely home near Gassin. The villa is stylish and comfortable. The pool and garden are idyliic. Everything is as described and even better than we had imagined.

The local agents were very helpful and really lovely.

We enjoyed every minute: croissants and pain au chocolat from nearby bakers, every meal outside with fresh produce from local markets and day and evening swims in the gorgeous pool. We cannot fault anything [except an ice bucket would have been nice to keep the champagne cold!!] Best holiday we've had in along time. can't wait to go back!

Location

From the Owner

The Var is a beautiful region with an amazing coast. This house appealed immediately as it is situated just away from the main traffic route in and out of St Tropez, but yet close enough to be able to go there easily. It felt like a home straight away although there were things we wanted to do to make the place our own. St Tropez is a fantastic place to get to know, especially out of season, it is always fascinating. I find there is so much more to it than just the glitz and glamour. Our house is situated in a quiet domaine just off the road to La Croix Valmer and we love especially love going to the beaches of Gigaro, Heraclee Plage and Debarquement. Heraclee Plage has a wonderful relaxed beach restaurant with sun loungers that I can really recommend. The house has great walks into the surrounding woodland including my favourite 'get fit' morning walk to the top of the hill through woodland at the rear of the house. The views over to the Gulf of St Tropez and down to Cogolin and across to Grimaud are worth heading up there for. There is a great choice of wonderful towns, villages and beaches around the area - all of these are within easy reach, You really are spoilt for choice. For those who love polo, or who are simply curious to experience a match, try dropping in informally on a match during the tournament season as this is only 5 minutes away. I would strongly recommend trying a visit to the house in May, early June or September as the area usually enjoys beautiful weather, in spring the flowers and blossom are all around and in September the days are hot and it is so relaxing.

There is a huge brocante near Port Grimaud - Le Jas de Robert, about 10 mins from the house. This is on a Sunday morning and is well worth a visit if you like flea markets.

Facilities

From the Owner

The house enjoys a corner site in the domaine so it has a spacious feel and is cleverly situated so that it feels private although we do have neighbours. It is very green all around as it is on the edge of the woods and there is a view of the beautiful hill-top village of Gassin from our terrace. In summer it feels like a real haven in the heat. Gassin is really beautiful and is great for its amazing terrace of restaurants overlooking the Gulf of St Tropez and is well under 10 minutes drive away. It really is a treat to experience this. We also love spending days with friends by the pool, and the open plan south facing indoor living space works well and has a light and airy feel. The 4 bedrooms are situated 2 either side of this space. The open plan kitchen is conveniently situated for the outdoor dining terrace.
