When traveling to sunny St-Tropez, an authentic, achingly gorgeous Provençal bastide is the perfect setting in which to experience the historical charm and glamorous style of the region at the heart of the French Riviera. Traditionally, bastides are the private holiday retreats of France’s well-to-do, larger and more elegant than the farmhouse that otherwise dotted the landscape. This resplendent villa in the coastal resort town that Bridgette Bardot put on the map is a wonderful opportunity to immerse yourself in the authentic style and luxury of a truly fabulous bastide.

A perfect day in St-Tropez may include an afternoon exploring the promenade in Old Town or perusing the Musée de L’Annonciade but it isn’t complete without a refreshing dive in the pool. Whether you spend your afternoon lounging in the sun beside it or gliding through its brilliant aqua blue waters, the enormous pool is the centerpiece of the beautifully landscaped yard. Romance is imbued throughout the estate from the historically-inspired architecture to the lush vegetation enveloping the villa. While it is a picturesque setting to savor a bit of solitude, the property is also designed with numerous outdoor spaces that lend perfectly for social gatherings of all sizes.

One of the generously sized terraces features a pergola with a retractable roof so you can bask in the rays of the Mediterranean sun or sip a glass of chilled rose in the shade. This makes for a dreamy afternoon spent yacht gazing, perfectly relaxed into the plush lounge furniture. A grill and outdoor dining area mean you won’t ever have to tear yourself away from the magnetic sea view.

The main living areas are appointed in the rich warm tones typical of a neo-Provençal luxury home. The fireplace adds an additional layer of warmth and invites late night of great conversations shared over bottles of wine. Enormous sliding doors connect the outdoor dining terrace for seamless transitions between indoor and outdoor living.

At the close of each idyllic day in paradise, the enchanting master bedroom welcomes you with a romantic style and sumptuous furnishings fit for la noblesse. Sunlight fills the room through two sets of arched french doors on either side of a stone fireplace. Through the glass the rich assortments of greens and brilliant blues from the garden and pool views make a colorful state and striking contrast from the otherwise soft neutrals of the interior. in the bathroom warm stone tiles create a cozy spa-like atmosphere, perfect for enjoying a long soak in the elegant freestanding tub.

St-Tropez is the sun-soaked yachting paradise that has been attracting the jet set for generations. When holidaying in the heart of the French Riviera this provencal bastide makes an excellent home away from home. Boasting a generous 7 bedrooms, 7 full bathrooms and 8 partial bathrooms across 3,390 sqft of living space, there is plenty of room and ample privacy for even a large party to enjoy the luxurious serenity the property offers.
