LUXURY VILLA WITH HEATED POOL AND GARDEN GATE LEADING STRAIGHT ONTO BEACH

Cavalaire-sur-Mer Villa Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, sleeps 10

STUNNING VILLA NEAR ST TROPEZ WITH HEATED POOL AND GARDEN GATE LEADING STRAIGHT TO THE BEACH

Swim from the sandy beach at the bottom of the garden or in the private pool, then breakfast on the terrace or on your bedroom balcony and enjoy one of the finest views on the Riviera. The great appeal of this special house is its unique location. The unspoilt panorama of sea and hills is stunning. Yet, despite its tranquil setting, you can walk to the village shops in five minutes.

La Couveuse is a restored Edwardian villa on the fringe of unpretentious Cavalaire Sur Mer with its busy shops and restaurants, long, sandy beach, marina and sporting facilities including sailing, scuba diving, tennis and mini-golf. Cavalaire is a short drive from St Tropez (20 minutes) and two hours from Nice to the east and Marseilles to the west. There are also flights from Paris and London to Toulon which is less than an hour away and a Motorail Terminal in St Raphael.

La Couveuse is at the end of an unmade track with a gate at the bottom of the garden with opens onto a path that leads directly to one of the prettiest family beaches in the area. You're so close you can be in the sea within minutes of rolling out of bed. If you prefer to swim privately, there is a 12 m x 7 m chlorine-free heated swimming pool surrounded by a spacious terrace, ideal for sun bathing and gentle ball games. There are two other terraces and a place to play boules.

The house is furnished for relaxation. There are no antiques for children to damage, nor does the garden contain rare plants for them to trample on. From the terraces, you can't see another house. Just the sea with its changing traffic of small boats and a distant lighthouse and the island it protects. From Cavalaire's port there are daily boat trips to the protected islands of Levant, Porquerolles and Port-Cro.

Cavalaire is also ideally located for exploring the beautiful hinterland of Provence including Aix-en-Provence, the Maures Massif and the Verdun Grand Canyon.

La Couveuse has been extensively renovated and is designed to provide a family or group of friends with all they require for a relaxed and enjoyable holiday. The spacious house can comfortably sleep 10 in five large bedrooms, all of which have uninterrupted views of the sea, hills and valley.

The living areas downstairs also command stunning sea views with doors leading to the paved terrace There's a modern 'open' kitchen fitted with a full range of appliances including cooker, dishwasher, fridge and micro-wave. Behind it is a utility room with a washing machine and a large second fridge. The main L-shaped living room has doors leading directly to a wide terraced area with a table and chairs where you can dine in the evening overlooking the then deserted beach.

In the 'quiet' back sitting room there is a television receiving terrestrial and satellite channels (Sky News, CNN, BBC World etc) and a video and DVD. The system can also pick up all the UK BBC radio stations.

The main double bedroom has French windows opening onto a balcony that overlooks the beach and sea. An en suite bathroom includes a bath, toilet and bidet. Two other double bedrooms also open onto the balcony and the fourth bedroom, which can comfortably sleep four, is ideal for children. These bedrooms share two other bathrooms. There is also a double bedroom suite in the roof.

For winter visitors the house has full central heating and the living room has a traditional open fire.

La Couveuse is equipped with everything we can think of for your comfort. There is table tennis, games, toys and shelves full of books, every utensil in the kitchen, the showers are hot, the sofas don't sag and you're spoilt for choice of places to snooze or sunbathe.

A very special place.

This was our third stay at this lovely villa. We have been before with a group of friends but this time fulfilled a long-held dream of being there with our daughter, son-in-law and two granddaughters (12 and 15). The house is spacious, welcoming and comfortable, equipped with everything you could possibly need. There is a friendly, very competent local caretaker who will help with any problems you may have. We spent hours in the lovely pool, playing and swimming. We swam too from the little secluded beach just metres away from the house and reached by a private path with lockable gate. The house, with its terraces, flowers and trees appears totally secluded, yet you can walk to an excellent supermarket in just a few minutes as you can to the boulangerie for the morning croissants. The busy little town has a good variety of shops, cafés and restaurants and a weekly market. Above all, it is the secluded peace and charm of La Couveuse that makes it such a a very special place. We hope to return there before long.

Stunning Location

We have just returned from a memorable week at this wonderful villa. Our family travelled to join us from Australia, America and Oxford with our three Grandchildren aged four and under. It was the perfect place for us and all agreed well worth the journeys. The villa is spacious, peaceful, convenient with amazing views of the ocean and the hills. Our little swimmers loved the swimming pool and used it every day (as did the big ones)! We also swam in the sea and the little ones spent many hours digging on the great little beach accessed by our own gate from the villa. The photos of the terrace, in our opinion do not do it justice. It is very large with two dining areas, comfortable seating and of course, those views. We visited St. Tropez, Port Grimaud and the other beautiful towns and villages close to the villa where we enjoyed lunch in lovely little restaurants. We loved walking to town each morning to the Boulanger and strolling along the sea front in Calalaire. Evenings were mostly spent in the villa where the "chefs" in the group cooked great family meals using the fresh local produce while we sampled the local wines - well someone has to! The cooking and dining facilities worked well for our party of 10 adults. My favourite memory? Waking up each morning looking out at the sea from my bed, enjoying a quiet coffee on the adjoining balcony far removed from the everyday world! We all loved it and hope to return to this amazing villa in the future.

We (a group of 8 friends) spent a wonderful week at La Couveuse in Cavalaire Sur Mer. This wonderful villa was absolutely wonderful and perfect in every way. The villa it's self is very comfortable and extremely well appointed. We enjoyed spectacular views from every room as well as from the outside seating areas and the fabulous pool.

I hope to return in the near future..

La Couveuse is a house I stayed in as a child in the 1960s. This was our first return visit since then. The position of the house is just as stunning as ever with an unrivalled position overlooking the sea and the nature reserve beyond the beach. The house on the other hand has improved markedly - it is very spacious and comfortable, delightfully modernised and furnished, without losing any of its original charm and period features. We found everything we needed in the house for a most enjoyable week and both the owners and the local caretaker were very happy to help with any queries The pool is very well situated to the side of the house and has plenty of sunbathing space but the real delight is the views from the terrace over the sea only 50meters below the house. Everything you might need is available in Cavalaire which is in easy walking distance but we mostly stayed in the Villa and enjoyed the peace and quiet and the lovely swimming both in the pool and in the sea. A really delightful week.

6th Great Year

For the past 6 years we have been lucky enough to make La Couveuse our holiday home for a couple of weeks in May/June. The situation is stunning and the villa is exactly as described on the website. Comprehensive travel details are provided and the Owner always rings shortly after our arrival to check that all is well.

We sometimes travel for lunch to the pretty hilltop villages of Gassin and Grimaud, as well as occasionally eating out in Cavalaire itself which is an easy walk from the villa. A particular favourite restaurant is La Verdoyante on the edge of Chateau Minuty, with views over the vineyard and the Gulf of St Tropez - the food is excellent and the service charming.

Details of nearby restaurants are provided in a book at the villa, however it is hard to beat a meal on the villa terrace overlooking the bay, washed down with copious quantities of rose - try La Siouvette from nearby La Mole.

Activities we have enjoyed include tennis at a club on the outskirts of Cavalaire, the village market and coastal walks.

Over the years we have invited many friends to join us and they are invariably keen to come back for more.
