About the property

Villa in Cavalaire sur Mer, Nr. St Tropez, Cote D Azur, France - Ideally placed, just 1km from the sea

Ideally placed, just 1km from the sea, La Carrade is an ancient Provençal farmhouse set in its own extensive grounds. One of the last remaining substantial properties on the Côte d'Azur, the villa is set in more than 35 hectares of typical Mediterranean 'maquis' woodland, among parasol pines, cypresses, cork and green oaks, and briar. The house was completely transformed by architect Francois Spoerry into a modern villa, with his particular sympathy for preserving its ambiance and original charm, a vernacular he later used when building Port Grimaud, nearby. The large swimming pool (16x7m), has a shady pool house. You are only 20km from St Tropez and there are many places to see in the back-country too. Just minutes away, aside from the many beaches, you can explore local hill villages and their markets, visit Gassin golf course, or the new luxury Spa at Ramatuelle. And then opportunities abound to sample the wines in some of the most celebrated vineyards on the Côtes de Provence.
