Outstanding, air-conditioned villa in vineyards just outside the perched village of Grimaud near St Tropez. This family home has been lovingly restored by its current owners, retaining beautiful, classic features including beamed ceilings, open fireplaces and teracotta tiled floors. Furnished in sophisticated country style with select antique pieces, and offering every modern comfort, this is an excellent base for a relaxing French Riviera holiday at any time of the year. At the heart of this beautiful villa is a large and comfortable living room, air conditioned in the heat of the summer but also with an open fireplace for those cooler evenings in spring and autumn. The mature gardens are a delight; there is a large lawn ideal for children and a charming'au vent', or outdoor living room, offers lovely views over the vineyards to Grimaud, a particularly magical sight in the evenings when the ruins of the castle are floodlit and you can relax here listening to the crickets sing! This is an idyllic, rural setting, yet you are so close to Grimaud and other attractive villages such as Ramatuelle and La Garde-Freinet, you will never feel remote. This location truly offers the best of all worlds; days out in the bustling town centre and port of St Tropez, or on Pampelonne beach, perhaps with lunch at one of the famous restaurants, country drives up into the unspoilt hills of the Var region, or an evening stroll around the waterways of Port Grimaud. There are several restaurants to choose from in the old village of Grimaud, and at some point you must climb up to the castle ruins for just about the best view along the French Riviera; why not pack a picnic lunch!
