Gassin Villa Rental Photos and Description

6 bedrooms,4 bathrooms. 5000sqm. Pool:child wading area.Gym. Village,beach close

Villa Tropez is a true French Riviera experience. Nestled amongst rolling hills of vineyards, olive & oak trees, Villa Tropez’s elevated aspect offers secluded luxury, enjoying panoramic views of the valley of St. Tropez. The property has been used & featured in films / series, & is a celebrity favourite, due to its true Provencal charm, private resort-style facilities & location.

It has recently been awarded for its peaceful holiday and exclusive retreat atmosphere, by being added to the luxury Healing Hotels of the World collection.

The stone-paved sunlounger terraces, & beautifully designed poolhouse with ornate tiled wet bar & shaded pool-side lounge seating, has the atmosphere and space to create your own Cote d'Azur resort & beach club feel during the days.

...'Very Charming house and property in the middle of the vineyards of St Tropez/Gassin. It was a truly amazing experience - relaxing, and a different way to discover my country.'

Greg Galy (French national living in the US), VP of Fig & Olive mediterranean cuisine restaurants. 5th Ave NY, Melrose Place LA etc. Stayed July 2013

...“What can I say, my standards are high in finding the right look and feel of a holiday Villa, due to the nature of my work and Life I guess! I so far have spent 2 glorious weeks, and will be contacting everyone in my little black book about Villa Tropez. Katrina & her team are always a delight to book & stay with.” ...

Meg Mathews, Celebrity Designer, UK; has stayed 3 times.

It easily accommodates up to 14 persons, with 5-6 bedrooms (5 kingsize / twin rooms, 1 single bed alcove & one double sofabed studio). See the Accommodation Page of our own website for details and flexible bedding options.

And with the feel of a private resort, the property provides a large range of facilities, whether it's for pool-side relaxation, family fun, a milestone birthday or anniversary, or a fitness & yoga retreat-style holiday.

There is a retreat chalet for your own use, with gym equipment, yoga mats, a boules pitch for petanque, & ping pong table.

Large level grassed areas with inspirational views are perfect for private fitness sessions or family games, set amongst expansive grounds of one acre (5000sqm).

In a serene location with no traffic noise, the property is convenient to local beaches & only a couple of minutes' drive, or a scenic cycle route, to village supermarkets, boulangeries etc. These roads/lanes are traffic-free, an extremely important aspect when choosing a location for easy access to supermarkets, bakeries etc in the popular yet often-congested Bay of St Tropez.

Villa Tropez is an exquisite example of Provençal living, with spacious open-plan living areas to capture views & fresh sea air.

Enjoy the eat-in kitchen for breakfast, the terraces off each of the bedrooms, the shaded arbor seating 12 by the resort-style pool for lunch; the poolhouse bar; or at night, the grand terrace under starlight, illuminating the vineyards.

Quarter-Olympic size pool (13m x 7m; naturally warm due to sunny position and dark heat-attracting tiles) with in-pool bar seating, child wading platform.

Free Wi-Fi in the Villa, Sky TV channels in living area, Flatscreen TV's in most bedrooms with Freeview, Playstation 2, Game/DVD Library, independent apartment (5th & 6th bedroom).

The location can't be beaten: well situated to avoid coastal traffic on the congested D559/98, & easy access to beaches, shops, St Tropez (times dependant on seasonal traffic):

- 10 minutes drive to bay beaches (5km), on to St. Tropez town & port

- 3 minutes to supermarkets (Cogolin), boulangeries & winery cellar doors

- 20 minutes to the white sandy Mediterranean beaches & clubs of Pampelonne.

The property is not situated anywhere near a busy road; quiet meandering vineyard laneways provide the entry access to the quartier Villa Tropez is located in. The property borders are fully fenced with electronic gates.

With lovely English & French speaking caretakers who live locally, we have a wealth of local advice, & suggestions on how to spend your days:

- hiring bicycles to follow the popular scenic river route, below the vineyards

- a nature trail walk through the ancient oak forest from the Villa gates

- a gentle jog through the vineyards and farmland

- or your destination could be the local winery cellar doors within the neighbouring fields.

Villa Tropez has been running as a popular holiday retreat rental for 8 years now, with many return guests booking year after year. The genuine reviews on HomeAway and our own website reflect what guests think of the setting, amenities & service.

About Katrina Denoux

Photo shows the crew of Villa Tropez on the grand terrace: owners, caretakers, tour hosts, and happy guests!

Villa Tropez started as the complete refurbishment of an old bastide in the vineyards of St Tropez. It was a former game lodge & farm. The Provencal country ambience remains, alongside the Villa's new role: providing luxury accommodation, for family birthday or anniversary events, corporate weekends, wellness retreats, gourmet tours and film locations. (www.villatropez.com)

In the off-season it is still often home to Australian-born Katrina Denoux, Frenchman Christophe Denoux, and their 5 year old Franco-Aussie twins. They divide their time between Sydney, London & Provence.

Katrina Denoux purchased this villa in 2006

Villa Tropez is simply stunning!

  • 5 of 5
Villa Tropez is breath taking. The location is so very peaceful - the tranquillity there is priceless! The property itself is beautifully decorated and maintained throughout and all of the bedrooms are large and airy. We have visited about 6 times now and never become complacent. Its ideal for large groups of friends or for smaller families as it has a homely feel. Its a must have place to visit!!

The perfect villa!

  • 5 of 5
We had such a lovely week at your villa. I can't praise the service and facilities you offered highly enough, everything ran smoothly from arrival/departure and during the stay. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and the pool and garden area was great fun.

Ultimate retreat in the hills of St Tropez!

  • 5 of 5
All I can say is WOW. There are only a few places in the world where time literally feels like it slows down; where one has the ability to completely detach from the manic business world we are engulfed in on a daily basis.

Villa Tropez is our sanctuary- nestled in the hills of Cogolin surrounded by vineyards, we sit on the terrace of this rustic getaway, sipping french wine- eating fine cheeses and soaking up the romanticism that only Villa Tropez can emulate. Watch the sunset, relax by the pool- cook a wood fired pizza, Villa Tropez is THE destination to be... and once there its hard to leave!

Highly recommended!

We'll be back in Villa Tropez!

We'll be back in Villa Tropez!

First time we rented a villa in the South of France was in 1981 and there has been many villas since, but we now all agree that Villa Tropez takes the price. Our party of 9, friends and family aged from 1 to 66, enjoyed every bit of it: the roomy kitchen, excellent bed- and bathrooms, the pool, the boule-pitch, taking all meals outside, watching from the terrasse the sun setting over the hills. Peaceful among the vineyards, close to shopping, villages, vineries, beaches and action. We also appreciated the possibilities for cycling in the smaller roads in the vicinity and walking in the hills behind the villa.

We’ll be back in 2012!

lovely and peaceful

  • 5 of 5
The Villa Tropez was a perfect place for us to rest after a long airline journey to France; peaceful and quiet yet close to shopping and activities.

Jonathan and Sharon, who manage the property, were very helpful and available and always pleasant. We could tell the owners have taken a lot of time and effort to make the villa a charming and authentic Provencal experience; the landscaping, house and little touches around the place show that. (naps on the outdoor daybed were a special joy). There are also modern comforts like microwave, dishwasher etc.

While we stayed as far from St. Tropez as possible (traffic, crowds etc.) it is close enough to be available for those who choose the beaches. We loved the surrounding hillsides and cities of Gassin and Ramatouille and never had a problem finding a good meal.

We would certainly recommend this villa to others; although we found it nicest to be there just the 2 of us there is definitely room for more guests.

Villa Tropez is about as close to St Tropez as you can get, without being imposed upon by other holiday villas or dealing with daily traffic jams. The location can’t be beaten: well situated to avoid coastal traffic on the congested D559/98, & easy access to beaches, shops, St Tropez.

The property is not situated anywhere near a busy road; quiet meandering vineyard laneways provide the entry access to the quartier Villa Tropez is located in.

It has the luxury of privacy & space on one acre of lush gardens. Elevated in the Gassin des Maures hills, bordering Cogolin vineyards, it is close to Cogolin shops & well located for driving to beaches, with direct access to roads parallel to the main congested coastal route, avoiding most of the traffic St Tropez is infamous for. (Traffic is often at a standstill from St Maxime to St Tropez).

note: property marker location on map is approximate only

Supermarket, bakery, shops (Cogolin) are a 3 minute drive. Gassin & Grimaud hilltop villages, St Tropez bay beaches less than 10mins, Pampelonne beach 20 mins (traffic permitting).

Stroll out the front gate through vineyards, sampling local cellar-door wines. Soak up rays & cocktails at the beach clubs of Pampelonne. Explore St Tropez town.

Nice airport (BA, Air France, Easyjet) approx 1 1/4 hrs drive. Toulon airport (Air France, Ryanair) 40min

Notes:
Villa Tropez hosts Porsche and Ferrari weekends, though drivers of low sports cars should take note of the road terrain: the property is in a rural location - roads leading to the Villa are unpaved & uneven in parts, & up a hill. The land is in its natural state along the fenced borders, keeping in line with surrounding forest and farmland, to maintain a rustic farmhouse feel. Furniture / furnishings may not be exactly the same as shown in photos / from prior rentals. Due to breakage / wear and tear each year, some pieces may have been replaced, with the replacement being as close as possible to the original style.
