A great opportunity to enjoy peace and quiet up in the hills close to the bustling coast. The house has a stunning contemporary interior.
This truly stunning modern villa commands wonderful views of the Gulf of St-Tropez and enjoys a quiet, privileged position. It is located 6km from the medieval village of Grimaud and 4km from car-free Port-Grimaud (built in the 60s) with its canals and bridges; both villages have all shops and services, and many restaurants. There is a large commercial centre 6km away at La Foux. Lively Ste-Maxime is 9.5km away and the charming and ever-fashionable village of St-Tropez (12km) with its old quarter and Citadelle full of lively cafés and restaurants offers all services; there are markets on Tuesday and Saturday mornings. There is a particularly good market at Ramatuelle (14km) on Thursday and Sunday mornings; Ramatuelle is a picturesque medieval village in a beautiful quiet setting which contrasts nicely with the trendy coastal villages.
The beautiful Abbaye du Thoronet, a Cistercian abbey founded in the 12th century, is 46km away; it formed part of the "Three Provençal Sisters", the other two being L'Abbaye de Sénanque and the Abbaye de Silvacane. The monastery of Chartreuse de la Verne (31km) is well worth visiting for its gorgeous location and views.
Horse riding is possible in Grimaud, and bike and boat hire in Port-Grimaud. The closest sandy beaches are at Beauvallon where there is also a sailing school, and an 18 hole golf course which also houses a tennis club.
