St. Tropez villa description

This beautifully designed villa has been painstakingly restored and extended . La Petite Cachette (The little Hideaway) is quite exceptional in that it feels very much like a home with personally selected books, art and other accessories making La Petite Cachette very welcoming and comfortable.
La Petite Cachette is nestled in 2.5 acres of private undulating woodland and wild flowers, bordering vineyards and protected oak forests with 180 degree panoramic views of the picturesque village of Plan de La Tour. The villa is totally private and not overlooked by any other property but is not isolated. It is a bird lover’s paradise with bird singing from dawn to dusk!
La Petite Cachette is perfectly suited for 1 or 2 families with its carefully designed layout enabling guest’s privacy when desired. There are several flower covered terraces around the main house and guest cottages to enable guest’s peace and quiet along with a large terrace off the main house with a dining table which seats 10 and comfortable lounge chairs, which benefits from the late afternoon sun and spectacular evening sunsets.
The main house is decorated in provencal style with a modern twist. It has 3 comfortable bedrooms, 2 queens and one twin. There is an en-suite walk in shower room with a lovely garden view off the master bedroom and a beautiful family bathroom with a cast iron English roll top tub (the most comfortable bath in the world) and hand shower. Each bathroom has a toilet and basin and in addition there is a guest cloak room with toilet and basin. The spacious open plan cooks kitchen and dining room has recently been added with no expense spared with a large ‘Lacanche’ stove which has a 5 ring gas hob, gas oven and electric oven. The dining area overlooks the terrace with views over the gardens.
The large bright sitting room with a cosy piano nook and open fireplace has French doors leading to the main terrace and a vine covered terrace and boules court to the rear of the property.
The ‘Pigioniere’ guest cottage overlooking the pool above the main house is self-contained with a first floor twin (possible to make into a king) bedroom with 360 degree views of the surrounding hills, fully equipped solid oak kitchen, Moroccan tiles walk in shower room and cosy sitting room antique terracotta floors and open wood burning fireplace.

La Petite Cachette is ideally located within 5 mins drive from the picturesque village of Plan de La Tour (or quiet 40 mins walk through the vineyards) and 15 mins from the beaches of St Maxime and 30 minutes from the old town /beaches of St Tropez. It is an easy 1 hour drive from Nice International Airport and 20 mins from St Tropez heliport.
