Surrounded by a golf course ( renters receive discounted green fees ) within a secure, tranquil, private estate, a part of which is designed by Francois Spoerry, the architect who created Port Grimaud in the 1960’s. This modern Provencal villa, built in 2000, is set on a hill with spectacular views over the bay of St Raphael to the front and the Maures mountains to the rear. A large communal 25 metre swimming pool and children’s pool together with three tennis courts are all within 150 metres.
This pretty villa has its own private garden with west facing terrace and balcony ensuring magnificent sun rises and shaded long summer evenings.
The living area briefly comprises of a large open plan kitchen, dining lounge area with access to the terrace and garden through French windows. Three bedrooms are upstairs, one large double with balcony, one twin with en suite shower room, and one room with bunk beds. Downstairs the master bedroom with large double bed and en suite bathroom has French windows leading onto the terrace.
Great holiday . Lovely villa with great sea views . Very well equipped with internet and television . Webber BBQ for outside eating and surounded by vine yards ... Heaven
Great hilltop location with an unbeatable view from the Med, over Frejus and all the way up to the mountains. The villa was spacious and well-equipped and having a lawn at the rear, where we could chill out when we didn't feel like going to the pool, was a real bonus. The pool area was also uncrowded, despite it being peak August season, and we never had a problem finding empty sunloungers - at times we were the only people in the pool!
We spent a beautiful week in the villa. It´s a calm "domaine" where you can enjoy the lifetime. The tennis courts and the swimming pool are in very good conditions and my family(2 children) enjoyed it very much.
The surrounding with St. Tropez, St. Maxime, etc. is beautiful. So you can do a lot of things based of this charming villa.
We had to submit a review after a brilliant holiday here. The photos really do not do it justice! We were a party of four adults and four children and it fulfilled our every need.
The property was spacious enough for us all, the kitchen was well kitted out and the garden was beautiful, especially for wine at the end of a busy day. Sheena was always available via email and the only problem we had with the toilet was dealt with quickly. There are lots of books and leaflets with ideas on what to do and it really is a home from home. It was very clean, well maintained and kitted out for your every need, even tennis rackets!
The advice to close the shutters is worth following, as despite temperatures of late 30's, it kept the house cool and was refreshing when coming back mid afternoon.
A car is an absolute must to appreicate the surroundings. Roquebrune is a short drive away and there is a hypermarket which is just amazing, only about a 10 minute drive away, which puts Tescos to shame.
We took a boat trip to St Tropez from St Maxime, visited Nice, the amazing Lac de Saint Croix, the beautiful beaches at Frejus. If you get up early enough you can get to the beach and park nearby.
The Aquapark is a brilliant day out but it is worth buying the voucher from the hypermarket to avoid the queues to get in.
The pool was huge and was never over busy, despite us going in peak season. Only complaint was that the kids weren't allowed to play with anything in the pool which made it a bit harder to entertain them.
Loved the fact that the baguette man would come every morning and got fresh bread without going shopping.
At the bottom of the road is Chateau de Roquebrune, a vineyard which has wine testing at 5.30pm on a Friday and definitely worth a visit, although you will have to drive as it is a good few miles from the villa to the actual vineyard. Definite must however.
I would without doubt recommend this property to someone else, it was in a fantastic spot, quiet but near to a lot of attractions and we could have done with three weeks there instead or two. The view overlooking Roquebrune and Frejus from the property is amazing!
We look forward to returning.
Everything in the description of the property was accurate.
I would recommend this property to everyone.
It is the perfect place to relax, to sun, to swim, to enjoy the view & silence.
You can easily drive to the sea side our to other villages.
To our family (with 3 children) it has been one of the best holidays.
And we will be back for sure.
Just back from our holiday in France. The villa was really perfect for us two families. Everything OK, and no complains, in fact even better than expected. The view is fantastic, just as the standard of furniture and equipments. The resort itself is safe, quite and facilities as pool and tennis courts were very well looked after. Weather was sunny and warm every day. We are already talking of coming back - there was so much to do and discover in the area. One week is absolutely not enough
The view over the valley of the Argens was beautiful to wake up to – misty morning clouds around distant craggy hills; St Raphael & Frejus city lights sparkling in the distance at night. Magical!
The living space was spacious and well designed with plenty of seating both inside and out and the garden was great for BBQs courtesy of the gas BBQ – so easy to use (1st time for us)! By closing the shutters when we were out during the day, the living area stayed cool even in the 30 degree temperatures we experienced. Being raised above the valley there was always a breeze, something a long term resident confirmed, so temperatures in the house are lovely.
The two main bedrooms, one downstairs, one upstairs both had French windows accessing the balcony or the garden. The beds were very comfortable and well provided with pillows and duvets, and there was plenty of cupboard and wardrobe space.
The kitchen/dining equipment included everything we needed and it was great to have enough mugs to put them in the dishwasher and still have loads left over! All the kitchen equipment worked very well and was intuitive to use.
The development’s gardens are mature, the scent of lavender wafting on the breeze. The pool area was pleasant and pool size good for those who want to swim a few lengths. The tennis courts were in excellent condition.
I agree with other reviews about the need for a car, but everything was very easy to access once you found the quick ways to get there. Brilliant boulangerie in the local village – Roquebrune, Carrefour barely 10 minutes away, the beach 10 minutes away too at 9.00 in the morning.
We would thoroughly recommend this villa.
Roquebrune sur Argens, only 10 minutes drive away, is a one thousand year old Provencal town. Enjoy a walk through the medieval streets up to the 16th century parish church.
Situated in the South Eastern part of the Var, its neighbours include St. Raphael, Frejus, Le Muy, Puget sur Argens and Ste Maxime.
St. Tropez and Cannes are both only a 30 minute drive, in the off season, but regular boat sailings operate from Les Issambres and Ste Maxime, to St Tropez all year.
Enjoy the local Provencal markets at Roquebrune and Ste Maxime.
TGV runs to Frejus where there is also a motor rail terminal. Nice Cote d’Azur airport is less than an hour away along the A8 autoroute.
Some of France’s best rosé can be found here and with the local domaine less than 5 minutes away wine tasting could not be easier.
The 18 hole Golf du Roquebrune course is a 10 minute walk to the club house and renters receive a discounted green fee. There are several other courses nearby.
Skiing in the Southern Alps is just 2 hours away
