La Petite Cachette is nestled in 2.5 acres of private undulating woodland with an abundance of wild flowers and oak trees and a 180 degree panoramic view of the picturesque village of Plan de La Tour. The villa is totally private but is just 5 mins drive from the village (or 25 mins walk through the vineyards). It is a nature lover’s paradise yet only a short ride to the beaches, restaurants and shopping of St Maxime and St Tropez.....

La Petite Cachette has a carefully designed layout enabling guest’s privacy. There are several terraces around the main house and guest cottage to enable guest’s peace and quiet to take a nap or read a book. The wisteria covered main terrace has a dining table, seating 10, and comfortable lounge chairs. This is a great spot to enjoy sunsets and stargazing.

La Petite Cachette has been decorated by a London based Interior Designer in Provencal style with a modern twist. Antique terracotta tiles, modern art and furnishings selected from world travels really make this house quite exceptional. There are 3 bright, spacious bedrooms in the main villa. The master bedroom has a 4 poster bed and an en-suite walk in shower room with a lovely garden views. The queen bedroom and twin share a beautiful family bathroom with a cast iron English roll top tub (probably 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 luxurious open plan cook’s kitchen and dining room has a large ‘Lacanche’ stove with 5 ring gas hob, cast iron plate, gas oven and electric oven. The dining area with seating for 8 overlooks the terrace with views over the gardens and beyond to the village.

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 morning terrace with a flood lit boules court.

The ‘Pigioniere’ pool house overlooking the pool above the main house has an upstairs twin bedded bed room, light and airy and below has fully equipped solid oak kitchen, Moroccan tiled walk in shower room/toilet and cosy sitting room antique terracotta floors and an open fireplace.

The Guest cottage, passed as you drive in, has twin beds and a homely feel with fully fitted kitchen and walk in shower room. Away from the main house it's a perfect peaceful space.

La Petite Cachette is ideally located with its excellent selection of shops and restaurants and a weekly farmer's market Thursdays. It is 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 15 min drive from Nice International Airport and 20 mins from St Tropez heliport.

Complete paradise on the Cote d'Azur

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have just returned from the most fantastic two weeks at La Petit Cachette. We were eight people in total; four boys aged 7, 9, 11 and 14, my in-laws and my husband and myself. The house is just perfect with the most stunning interiors, idyllic pool and pool house (which my husband and I slept in most comfortably for the two weeks). We had everything we needed. The kitchen is very well equipped and the wifi and sonos music system were a real bonus (especially for my eldest son!) The pool is very big and there are plenty of loungers with cushions. We ate all of our meals at the long wooden table on the terrace with a stunning view of Plan de la Tour. You do need a car here to be able to pop out and get provisions etc and you definitely need one that can cope with the unmade track that leads up to the house. There are of course many superb restaurants to explore in Saint Maxime and St Tropez and head south to find the best family beaches (not too far away and worth the drive). This villa is so good, I almost don't want to tell anyone and just keep it secret!

Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place. When a holiday villa is even nicer than your own home you know you are in for a holiday treat! The beautiful view from the villa is etched in my memory forever. Everything is so well thought through and the styling touches all over the house make it a truly French chic holiday experience.

The layout is a real plus point with two additional buildings available for teenagers or visiting guests. The villa is well situated a short distance from the local town which has a very good choice of restaurants and is only a short drive to the beach giving you the best of both worlds.

We have a wonderful stay at La Petite Cachette.

The house was as described in the listing. All was clean and well looked after.

Had a lovely week - mainly relaxing by the pool which was very well positioned with full sun all day.

The house is certainly off the beaten track but a lovely drive through the vineyards from Plan de la Tour.

20 minute drive to St Maxime on the coast.

Would highly recommend.

A petite paradise in the South of France

  • 5 of 5

La Petite Cachette is a little piece of paradise nestled in Southern France. The house itself is situated on a tranquil hillside with breathtaking views from every angle. It is hard to feel further away from everyday life than when sitting by the breathtaking pool with a glass of local wine. However if you do want to venture out, the excitement of St Tropez is only a short drive away, as well as the beautiful surrounding villages where you will want to stock up on local produce.

The interior of the house is as stunning as the surroundings. It is full of quirky decorations and a massive fireplace sits at the heart of the property. As the evening chill sets in there is no better place to be than by the fire eating bread and cheese with friends.

A perfect break!

  • 5 of 5

If you want a tranquil, beautifully designed and furnished base, off the beaten track and within easy reach of the glitz and bustle of St Tropez and the coast, which we did, La Petite Cachette fits the bill perfectly. The luxury accommodation offers a wonderful retreat for a family reunion or get together with friends. We rotated from patio to pool to kitchen to fireside areas from sunrise to sunset, after an early morning jog to the top of the hill behind the house (just over 1000ft) or through the surrounding woods and vineyards. The owner's tips for excursions and gastronomic experiences in the neighbouring towns and villages are brilliant and returning to the comfort and calm of the villa was a real bonus at the end of very full and enjoyable days of sightseeing and shopping.

French countryside paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to thank the owners of La Petite Cachette for sharing their beautiful home with us! If you are looking for a relaxing, private getaway and still have access to the excitement and beauty of the Mediterranean and Provence, this is the perfect spot for you.

La Petit Cachette, a country oasis nestled in the hills above Plan De la Tour, provided us just the level of country charm, relaxation, spectacular views and comfortable living we were looking for.

The home is newly renovated and offered every convenience we could hope for. The gourmet kitchen was fabulous and was the perfect spot for us to gather and try our hand at French cooking. The many patios offered us areas to sit and relax and enjoy the beautiful country side. The bedrooms were beautifully appointed and provided a tranquil spot to rest. The pool and pool house were amazing, set up on the hill overlooking the gorgeous vistas. The entire property was beautifully maintained.

We enjoyed the private location, just outside of town. Our first time driving to La Petite Cachette we closely followed the directions as we meandered through the village, vineyards and hill sides. Each time we made the journey it became more charming. We chose this location for the privacy; the drive to and from added to our intimate experience and was not an issue for our standard rental car.

Bottom line, La Petit Cachette has it all, comfortable country living, vineyards and great restaurants close by, the wonderful beaches and water sports offered by St. Tropez and the convenience to Nice, Cannes and the region of Provence. Pauline and Robert provided excellent recommendations for restaurants and area activities.

We are sure that all who experience La Petit Cachette will enjoy it as much as we did.
