About Palmyra Kownack

London based owners with a local manager and an on site caretaker.

Palmyra Kownack purchased this villa in 2007

Why Palmyra Kownack chose Ramatuelle

As soon as we walked through the gates into the garden we knew we had to buy this villa. It was perfectly peaceful and beautiful.

What makes this villa unique

We love the relaxed holiday feel of the villa. The location immediately puts you into relaxed holiday mode. It's close to the beach, the port and the hill towns. Even in the height of the busy summer months it's a haven. It's location also means it has excellent access into town unlike other properties located along the St Maxime- St Tropez route.

The gardens are stunning and are a tribute to our hard working 'guardian' gardener who is out in all weathers.

It's wonderful to be able to walk to the beach even during winter when the air is so clear and you can just see the foothills of the Alps in the distance.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I would call my vacation (also in the name of my friends) as absolutely perfect. It has been 10 years I come to St. Tropez, I have many friends there who also come every year by the mid to end of July and we simply love the region, the village, the places (voile rouge, Nikki beach, villa Romana, le yacca restaurant, club 55 to name a few), etc. -->> your amazing house just adds to this pleasure and I would like to take this opportunity to express again my thanks to you and your wife for letting us the villa - a nicely renovated house in good condition and perfect location, being just minutes away from the good beach restaurants, being quiet and having the great pool.

Great location close to the beach. Lovely villa. We appreciated the air conditioning in all the rooms as it was pretty hot. We are hoping to come back next year!

Perfect Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Grande Vigne Villa 2 weeks ago and I and my family had the most wonderful time. The Villa is in a great location which is so peaceful, the garden is stunning and it's just a short stroll to the beach if we want to go there, it's also easy and quick to get into the centre of St Tropez.

There is a wonderful general store (The Spa) near by where we picked up fresh bread and croissants for breakfast every morning.

Everything we need is in the house and it’s a pleasure to have a holiday rental property where clearly the owner has thought about their guests comfort, the games and puzzles kept us all entertained and the CD collection is awesome!

The rooms are all of a good size, the beds incredibly comfortable and are comfortably furnished, the Pool house is brilliant for dining and cooking in the sunshine.

The house is spotlessly clean and with all linen provided, I would have no hesitation in recommending La Grande Vigne and look forward to hopefully booking again next year.
