About the property

Villa in Plan de la Tour, St Tropez, Provence Alpes / Cote D'Azur, France - Peaceful Location, 2 Minutes From Pl

A haven of luxury and tranquillity within easy reach of the Gulf of St Tropez, Villa Joya is an idyllic Provencal villa furnished to a very high standard, which successfully blends the charm of the Mediterranean with all the requirements of contemporary living.

About Andrew & Emma

The villa is privately owned and offered to discerning clients who wish to sample the beauty and charm of the area from the luxury of this delightful residence.

Andrew & Emma purchased this villa in 2010

Why Andrew & Emma chose St Tropez region

We are well acquainted with the surrounding area, and after much searching were delighted to first discover, then purchase our dream villa in our favourite location. Plan de la Tour is a delightful unspoilt French village, a picturesque haven to the North West part of the Gulf of St Tropez. The village is well resourced with shops, restaurants and wine co-operatives. Villa Joya is set amidst vineyards in a small hamlet above the village, with quiet, secluded and enclosed grounds, yet within easy reach of the Gulf of St Tropez, through either Ste Maxime or the picturesque village of Grimaud. The area has something for everyone, from the glitz and glamour of Monaco and St Tropez, the quiet tranquil French village life and everything in between.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is our second home, and as such benefits from all 'our' home comforts. You will find the property well equipped both internally and externally with all the ingredients for a great family holiday, or a simple pad from which to 'chill'. We hope you share our love of food and make use of the outdoor kitchen with Italian wood fired pizza oven, French plancher as well as the more traditional Australian BBQ!

Best ever!

Best ever!

We have been renting villas for a number of years now as it suits our style of holiday. We have never actually gone back to a villa for a second visit, not because they were particularly bad, but because we always fancied trying a new experience. That all changed with Villa Joya!

After some detailed and patient emails with the owners (who couldn't do enough to help) we booked our two weeks along with another family and our five (collective!) children.

There is something for everybody at the villa, a fabulous kitchen inside, and an even better one outside with pizza oven and creperie, as well as the obligatory BBQ. In fact the outside kitchen and bar were the focus of much activity into the evening and night, maybe helped by the massive beer/wine fridge?!

If you don’t fancy dining on stools at the pool bar, there is a shaded dining area under the vines outside, a covered terrace with rattan seating to relax in, a table for dining inside and a centre island in the kitchen that also seats ten people!!!

The pool is large, heated and a mecca for children of all ages, surrounded by beautiful gardens that are well maintained and private.

We had a fabulous time and can’t wait to go back next year…. I hope this review doesn’t make that difficult… hmmm…..

Brilliant !!

Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable week at the villa - the website pictures are accurate and the facilities are excellent. The outdoor area is great to relax in (ample sun loungers and a covered dining area) while being able to keep an eye on small kids running around (property is completely fenced and gated) - the cooking facilities (BBQ and wood pizza oven) are high quality and have ample room to sit having a cold beer while someone cooks! Andrew & Emma were very responsive to emails and requests throughout the booking process and stay (also many thanks for the rosé!).

Villa Joya, Plan De La Tour, Provence

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the villa for 8 days in mid September. Eight in the party including an under 2-year old. Weather for the week was very good. The facilities are excellent and could certainly sleep 10 easily with two additional put up beds in the largest double bedroom. Arrival instructions were good, including how to get to the villa. Villa was clean overall, though despite the housekeeping before we arrived, it was evident that the previous party had left a few problems, including dog mess on one of the greased areas.

Kitchen is very well equipped in all regards as is the pool bar and pizza oven. We had great fun with the latter! We did a daily early morning run to one of the two excellent bakers in PLT and one big shop on the Monday at the Geant supermarket in Ste Maxime. We ate outside for all breakfast and dinner meals under the vine-covered trellis on all but one evening when the temperature did a nose-dive.

Beds were comfortable and the showers excellent. We found the cots after some searching. Needs a note in the instructions to say these are put you ups and located in bedroom cupboards.

We played boules on the strip next to the house and made great use of the pool. Word of warning here: the pool has no shallow end and is generally at least 2 metres deep. Pool maintenance man came round twice in the week..

Couple of niggles: sun umbrellas would be a bonus; even in September we had 27 degrees C for most of the week. Access to a broom to sweep up leaves and olives would be useful.

Otherwise, a good venue. Easy drives into Ste Maxime and Ste Tropez and there wis an excellent local vineyard about five minutes away where one can walk the estate and then visit the winery to taste the products.

Highly recommended.

Wonderful Villa!

  • 5 of 5

All the previous reviews were 100% accurate. A marvellous villa with plenty of room for two families.

The pool was fantastic and you very quickly slip into 'pool' life.

I would recommend the boat trip from St Maxime to St Tropez and then spend time in St Tropez.

Everything you need you can get from the local village with 2 great bakeries

The pizza restaurant across the road is brilliant- but best to book.

We all had a fantastic week, thanks

The perfect family retreat

  • 5 of 5

A stunning villa with plenty of space for a large group of family or friends. Beautifully appointed throughout and well laid out pool and patio area. Fantastic outdoor cooking and dining facilities, making it possible to make the most of the weather and spend your days and evenings outdoors. Stunning area, friendly people, quiet location, well situated for exploring but within easy reach of regional attractions. Our whole family thought it was perfect and would highly recommend
