About Evan McGregor

I came to stay in Plan de la Tour for 3 months via a friend. I loved the area and immediately went searching for a villa. We stumbled upon Mas Casaou and bought it. We have never looked back. Its our French dream. We go to the beach in the morning and then go home for lunch and sit by the pool in the afternoons. Its such a huge pool! Its a dreamy villa, great for romance and great for families. We love sitting on the terrace drinking Rose and watching the sunset - the view. It's incredible.

Evan McGregor purchased this villa in 2004

Why Evan McGregor chose St Tropez region

This is a dreamy, romantic, beautiful decorated rustic farmhouse. It has the most amazing views and wonderful feel. Its a large, spacious house with beautiful garden and huge pool. It is perfectly located for day trips or just lazing about.

What makes this villa unique

You will relax, that is for sure. It is really a family or group holiday house and for those wanting to have a real holiday.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our party of five loved the property ...the weather for our mid September trip was above normal temperatures and the solar cover helped warm the pool for swimming every afternoon after touring all of the convenient cities and sights within an easy drive. The views set the whole tone...peaceful and relaxing. The photos from the listing were very accurate....the house was clean and comfortable...and we dined every morning and evening on the outdoor veranda. The reservation was easy and communication was excellent with the owner Lisa..and our local onsite contact Hayley filled us in on local options. St. Maxime is a very short drive and has an excellent grocery store...making cooking and soaking up the ambiance of the house and grounds easy. I look at my pictures now that I am home and I still get a "wave" of relaxtion wash over me as I smile... remembering this very special setting.

Relaximg villa with wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 6 plus dog and this villa suited our needs perfectly. The villa itself was clean, well equipped and very comfortable. The pool was perfect and breakfast on the terrace with wonderful views was something to look forward to each morning. Sarah, the caretaker, was very helpful and just 5 minutes away if we needed anything. We enjoyed going down to the local village and eating at the restaurants there in the evenings and when we wanted bit of sand and sea Sainte Maxime was just 15 minutes away. Overall, thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will definitely recommend this villa to friends and family and hope to return ourselves in near future.

Fabulous Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for hosting a fabulous holiday.

We had the most wonderful time at Villa La Casaou, if possible we would be back tomorrow.

Safe secure private surroundings for our all of our family and pet dog. Beautifully laid out gardens, plenty of sun and shade areas with fantastic views. Great walks up the mountain for any dog lovers, our pet dog was able to run free which was brilliant. Hard work for the humans…….but great exercise

Amenities fairly close, Plan De La Tour has everything you need without venturing to far (markets, restaurants, shopping). St Maxime 10 min drive away and St Tropez 15 min ferry ride form St Maxime, so beautiful………..

We visited Grimaud , St Tropez, Cannes and St Maxime during our stay, all easy to get to and so great to see.

Lots of room within the house with everything you need for daily life, country style with all the mod cons you need. If we had any queries or issues we had on hand access to a Service Manger (who was brilliant by the way)

We are hoping to come back as soon as we can 

Thank you for letting us share your home

What a View

  • 5 of 5

"Hi Lisa!! Just wanted to tell you how much we LOVED staying at your home in the darling town of Plan de la Tour! We had the best vacation - enjoying Paris, St. Tropez, a drive to Monaco, wonderful dinners in the village, running( dying) up

The mountain, shopping , played tennis at the club, and finally our last stop and drop our son off in Barcelona! It was a trip to remember and we hope to get back someday. Your house is so charming-and what a view!!!!

Thx for all your info ahead of time!

Take care!!

Gloria xo"
