As the name suggests this lovely Bastide style house sits amidst a forest of beautiful mature cork trees. It is located in the countryside, on a hill top, which means as a result that one has the most wonderful views of the surrounding vineyards, fields and hills beyond. The pretty medieval village of Grimaud, with its local market, shops, bars and restaurants is just 5 minutes drive away, whilst both the beaches and centre of St Tropez are 15 minutes away.
The property is surrounded by pretty terraces and is set in a large natural garden, which during the summer months is awash with colour. Situated to the back and above the house sits a 12 x 4.5m swimming pool which has a constant depth of 1.4m , whilst close by, there is an attractive ‘’cabanon’’, a perfect spot for afternoon siestas.
In immaculate condition, this relatively new house, with internet access, has been very tastefully decorated and furnished throughout. It has an understated style and charm. Probably the best way of describing it, would be as, comfortable Provencal modern. It is ideal for those, wanting a quiet rural retreat, whilst at the same time, being close enough to enjoy the bright lights of St Tropez.
There is a large welcoming entrance hall with WC and featuring an open staircase leading to the first floor. The hall leads, to a very light and spacious living room, with large bay windows to one side and French windows opening onto the garden and main terrace. The room features two very large comfortable sofas and a working fireplace. The fully equipped modern kitchen comes complete with fridge/freezer, professional gas cooker, dishwasher and large dining area. Whilst just outside there is a covered terrace for dining. There is a separate Laundry room with both washing machine and dryer. The first bedroom, which can also be used as a TV room, is on the ground floor. It has 2 single beds, making it ideal for children or teenagers; it features an en-suite shower room.

The two other bedrooms share a bathroom with bath, shower, basin and separate WC. The first bedroom has a French double bed. The second bedroom has two twin beds.
