About the property

Villa between Grimaud and Plan de la Tour - Private And Peaceful 3 Miles From The Coast

Situated in an acre of mature gardens at the top of a shady green valley, this spacious and airy Provencal villa has wonderful views over the Gulf of St Tropez. It has been recently renovated with a new kitchen, modern appliances, new furniture and updated bathrooms. The villa has a private pool and a games area in the garden and although not isolated is very private, a car is essential to enjoy the surrounding area. It is equidistant from Plan de la Tour, Ste Maxime and Grimaud where you will find a wide selection of supermarkets and restaurants. It is a short drive from the beaches of Port Grimaud and the local golf courses at St Maxime and Beauvallon and within easy reach of St Tropez. Nice airport is about an hour away by autoroute.

The spacious living foom has four sets of double doors leading to the garden and there is always a breeze coming up the valley - welcome in the heat of the summer. The large and well equipped kitchen/diner is a pleasure to cook in with a wonderful old solid oak table seating 12 people although we tend to eat on the covered terrace with those views of the sea. The bedroom wing has two doubles and two twins and each bedroom has its own bathroom or shower room. Each one is furnished to designer standards and the beds made up with crisp white Egyptian linen.

Outside there is a large gas BBQ so there is no need to visit those wonderful French restaurants, unless you enjoy eating that wonderful French food! The pool area has been decked to provide a lovely rustic setting and the matching pavilion provides shade for those who find the sun a little warm at times. It's also a splendid place to drink that cold rose wine that is grown around here and watch the sun go down over the hill.

There is a large gravelled entrance where several cars can be parked. This year we have just finished building a self contained one-bedroomed villa that sleeps 2-4 people (sofabed in the living room) so if you have more friends or family that you would like to invite, please let me know.

The countryside surrounding the villa is a wonderful place for walking or even running if that is your choice of exercise and you can walk over the hills to Ste Maxime or La Garde-Freinet in a matter of hours. Peter and his daughter, accompanied by Sam-dog have done both walks and there are detailed maps on the shelf in the living room. I stood by with the car in case they needed rescuing!

If sitting on the beach is more your thing then you are spoilt for choice with several wonderful beaches nearby including two at Port Grimaud and of course the famous Pampelone Beach where you can look for stars by night and by day. You can hire a boat locally, with or without a "permis" and bicycles and also available for hire. But in my view, the very best pastime is lying by the pool with a glass of something cold in reach.

There are many wonderful places to visit - Port Grimaud in two minutes or San Remo in Italy in two hours. Last year we visited the Les Gorges du Verdon which is 25 kms long and the deepest canyon in Europe where the views are absolutely breathtaking.

The unique characteristic of the locality is that you can do you as much or little as you feel like, enjoy the bling of those fabulous yachts moored in St Tropez or enjoy the splendid peace and quiet of the valley - or even both.

About The Owner

We purchased this little piece of heaven 8 years' ago and have renovated and improved the property with love and care. We have refurbished the kitchen and all the bathrooms but still have Grand Designs to make it even more stunning. There is an acre of land and having started at the pool area, we are now replanting the garden bed by bed so I think it will keep us happily busy for a long time to come. If we can't be there all the time, we are happy to share our coin de paradis with you and are sure you will love it as much as we do.

Why The Owner chose St Tropez region

There are many wonderful and beautiful properties to rent in the South of France but our visitors tell us that our villa has a special ambience or "je ne sais quoi"! It is simply "very special space" and we can never wait to get back to paradise.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Nice at 100 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Port Grimaud at 4 Kilometres Car: necessary


The nearby traditional resort of Sainte Maxime has numerous sandy beaches with showers and beach cafes, ideal for young children. Across the bay, St.Tropez village with the super yachts in the port and it's famous Pampellone beach is a must! For the sailors amongst us, Port Grimaud is at the bottom of the hill, Port Cogolin is a little further down the road and the entrance to both harbours can be seen from our terrace.


DRIVING--About 1100 kms. from Calais by road. Easy access from the A8 autoroute at Le Muy junction 36. then 20 mins. to the villa. We regularly make this journey with two of us driving in less than 12 hours.

FLYING --- Nice airport 80 kms/75 mins drive with flights by Easyjet/Ryan Air/British Airways/British Midland etc. Marseille airport is 110 kms/90 mins drive with flights by Easyjet/British Airways. Toulon airport (Hyeres) 50 kms/50 minutes.


Plan de La Tour, Port Grimaud, and St Maxime are all within 5 kms of the villa. It’s less than 14kms to St. Tropez.

Further Details:

The pretty unspoilt village of Plan de la Tour has many superb restaurants along with small grocery stores, bar, bakeries, tourist office, post office, bank and pharmacy. The local wine cave has a regular Sunday morning wine tasting and there are numerous fetes and village events in the summer. The village has market day on a Thursday and other local markets include Le Muy, St Tropez and Cogolin. My favourite is St Tropez on Tuesday and Saturday – but be there early! The 'Arbre Adventure' and 'Aqualand' are 10 minutes away in St Maxime.
