Beautiful Villa with Private Pool and Tennis Court



Updated: 26-Sep-2016
Villa in Le Plan du Castellet, Var, Provence, France - Set Amongst Vineyards, 10 Minutes to the Beach

The villa is set within large, enclosed and well–maintained grounds which allows a peaceful and relaxing break. It is fully air-conditioned throughout.

It is ideal for families and is well equipped with 2 travel cots and 2 high chairs. The large swimming pool is fitted with underwater lighting and swimming pool alarm system for peace of mind with small children around. There are 2 large terraces, one which looks out onto the tennis court and garden and the other with a stone-built barbecue, to seat up to 15 people. We have also recently added a boule/petanque area. The villa also has wi-fi. Beautiful sandy beaches are situated 10 minutes away by car at St Cyr sur Mer, Bandol and Sanary sur Mer. The well-known beach resort of St Tropez only 100km away. The surrounding area offers an abundance of leisure activities for example horse riding, sailing, wind surfing, water skiing, paragliding and trekking. The nearby golf course at Le Frégate is regarded as one of the top 10 in France.

About the Owner

We are a family of 6, with 4 young children aged 0-7. The villa has been in our family for over 20 years and is much loved by us all, from babies to grandparents and friends.

We use the villa as much as possible, but in the weeks we are not lucky enough to be there, we rent the property out for other families to enjoy.

Superb family holiday

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at Villa Grace Dieu for many a summer holiday with my four children. It is the perfect place to see the Cote d’Zur. The villa has everything you could dream of; a pool close to the house where we can easily oversee the children, a great tennis court, and fantastic outside dining facilities that can comfortably seat everyone staying and guests. There are terraces both at the front of the house and to the rear, always providing sun and shade depending on your mood. The sleeping accommodation is very comfortable and the kitchen is well provisioned. It is an ideal place to relax and comfortably houses 12 people.

The villa’s situation is ideally suited for many of the local attractions. Just 10 minutes in either direction you can find great beaches at either Bandol or St Cyr sur Mer which offer all the usual water sports for the children to enjoy. But the beaches are only a fraction of what the beautiful south coast has to offer with wonderful towns of Bandol, Le Castellet, Sanary, and Cassis. The food markets are amazing and feature prominently in Raymond Blanc’s top places to source French ingredients. The restaurants and nightlife are excellent too with wonderful romantic dining opportunities available just minutes in the car from the villa.

We just love Grace Dieu and all it has to offer. That’s why we return year after year.

Fantastic family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Rob & Sally Mercer based in Staffordshire, UK – 5 January 2015

We have stayed at Villa Grace Dieu on three occasions now and each time we have had a fantastic family holiday. The villa is superb, set in large grounds with a great pool and tennis court to keep the kids entertained. The house and grounds are also safe for young children, and sitting on the villa balcony whilst the sun goes down, enjoying a BBQ and local red is perfect! We also loved the traditional Provence feel of the villa and felt very at home. The local area is tremendous with beautiful villages like Le Castellet and larger sea-side towns such as Bandol, Sanary and Cassis which offer lots of quality restaurants, beaches and daytime activities. All in all I couldn’t recommend Villa Grace Dieu enough and we are booking to return in 2015!

From the Owner

Our family is a mixture of both French and English. The French side of our family have always had holiday homes in the Bandol/Le Castellet region, and we have a strong connection to the area. As a holiday destination it is second to none, providing lovely beaches, port towns, medieval villages and vineyards on the doorstep. There is a huge amount to do whatever your age in the surrounding area. Similarly, the villa has everything you need for a family holiday and it is very tempting to stay put for as long as possible. The villa is near to the airport for access, and once there, has all you need within a short distance - supermarkets, traditional Provençal markets, lovely beaches, wine tasting, golf courses etc. etc.!
