Overview

About the property

Cottage in Le Plan de la Tour, Var, Provence-Alpes-Cote DAzur, France - An Oasis Of Tranquillity, 3 Minute Drive To The Village And 10 Minutes Drive To The Beaches

Chic self contained Guest Cottage designed with flair for the comfort and relaxation of guests. The bedroom has a queen sized four poster bed with super comfortable mattress, feather pillows and crisp white bedlinen and adjoins the marble tiled shower room. There is a discreet kitchen at one end of the well furnished sitting room which has fully retractable windows and shutters opening on to a private terrace with a table and chairs for outside dining or simply relaxing with a book in the sun. Set amidst beautiful countryside, the property has grounds of 6.5 acres, much of which is woodland. Pins parasols and cork oaks abound and provide much needed shade during the hot summer months. The air is heady with the scent of mimosa, jasmine, rosemary and lavender, all of which grow wild. Pine martens, hares and rabbits leap around the land in the coolness of early morning whilst Skops Owls and Hoopoes hoot into life at twilight, followed by the chorus of nightingales. Our neighbours, French and English alike, describe it as 'un vrai Paradis'. The peace is extraordinary, disturbed only by birdsong and cicadas. The property is surrounded by nature trails which makes the area popular with walkers and cyclists enjoying a little gentle exercise. For those who are interested in ancient stones, there are many Dolmens within walking distance of the property, which can be traced from local Ordnance Survey Maps.The swimming pool is set apart from the buildings, nestled in an oasis of its' own and surrounded by chairs and loungers. A covered wooden pavilion with cushioned seating sits at one end of the pool. Wide steps lead you easily into the water which maintains a steady 28 degrees from mid May to September. Having its own entrance, separate from the main house, provides guests with independence and the ability to come and go as they please. The property is hidden amongst woodland and vineyards just above the plain of Plan de la Tour and is very private with no neighbouring houses visible. A fairly steep hill climb, just beyond the house, will lead you to a breathtaking view at the summit of the Gulf of St. Tropez.

Location

Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

The coastal resort of Sainte Maxime is a 10 minute drive away. Cobbled streets, lined with shops, restaurants and cafes ascend from the harbour and its' wide promenades. A string of sandy beaches, easy for swimming, stretch from St. Tropez in one direction to Les Issambres in the other. The Ferry service runs every 15 minutes and transports visitors across the bay to and from the centre of St. Tropez. It continues until 1 a.m. leaving plenty of time to enjoy the nightlife the town is famed for

Travel:

Nice, Toulon (Hyeres) and Marseille airports are all within 1 hour to 1 hour 15 mins drive away. We can organise an airport pick up service if required although a car is essential to explore all the area has to offer.

Distances:

Plan de la Tour is a 1 km. drive away and the dramatic hilltop town of Grimaud is 15 minutes by car from our property. Sainte Maxime and its' beaches are a 10 minute drive away. A 25 - 30 min drive across the Presqu'il will take you to the exquisite towns of Gassin and Ramatuelle or Pampelonne Beach famed for its' star studded clubs, such as 55. The route is lined with vineyards where you can stop for lunch or a wine tasting.

Further Details:

Plan de la Tour radiates outwards from its' central square where you can dine outside under the trees at a selection of restaurants. During summer there are many musical events in the square where local people and visitors mingle to enjoy the entertainment.

The town is surrounded by vineyards and is well served by 3 Boulangeries, 2 butchers, 2 general stores, pharmacy, post office, bank, florist, art gallery and garage. Les Vignerons du Plan de la Tour is on the road to town as is Caves des Maures which has regular wine tastings throughout summer.

The Office du Tourisme will provide you with information on all local events and is located in the Town Hall, adjacent to the square. You can walk to just about everywhere in Plan de la Tour from the 2 large car parks, which are free, and situated at either end of the town.

Large supermarkets, such as Carrefour, are 5 minutes drive from the village, on the road to Sainte Maxime. It has a 24 hour garage which can be useful as the local garage keeps more limited opening hours.

In addition to the Ferry to St. Tropez, Bateaux Verts has a wide selection of Excursions from Ste. Maxime to Cannes, the Porquerolles Islands, Ile du Levant and Port Cros which run regularly during the summer months and are a perfect way to see the coast without having to sit in traffic. Having said that, the coastal roads in this region are incredibly beautiful and a joy to drive for most of the year.

Beautiful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay in this beautiful part of France. The accommodation was clean, comfortable and to a high standard throughout. The owners were welcoming and very helpful.

The pool was of a high standard, clean and just lovely for a swim and relaxation. The pool area is lovely, in beautiful surroundings.

The accommodation is in a peaceful location, ideal to relax and recuperate. We split our time between visiting places of interest and relaxing by the pool with lunch on the terrace.

There is plenty to see in the area of La Plan-de-la-Tour, including pretty hill-top villages (e.g. Grimaud and Gassin), and coastal hot-spots, including the beaches of Saint Tropez and Rayol-Canadel-sur-Mer. Sainte Maxime is about a 15 minute drive, from where there is a short (15min) foot passenger ferry to Saint Tropez.

Cannes and Nice are easily accessible.

The village of La Plan-de-la-Tour is possibly less of a tourist spot, but still pretty with plenty of restaurants, amenities and events.

We had a perfect holiday and would certainly like to stay there again!
