Featured in The Times '50 Best Villas in the Med' 2017
A lovely villa with large pool, sea views, secluded gardens and only a 4-minute walk to a beautiful sandy beach and restaurants…and all just 20 minutes from St Tropez.
Gigaro Beach House is a rare and very special find in the Côte d’Azur. Not surprisingly, many guests return year after year, so booking early is highly recommended!
From the moment you pass through the imposing iron gates, this little corner of paradise, with its roman style private pool, long wooden balconies and glimpses of the blue sea will raise your spirits and enfold you in its spell. Almost everything in this comfortable and stylish villa is dressed in natural materials; burgundy stone, marble, fine timber, handmade brick and wrought iron.
Gigaro beach, one of the most beautiful in the South of France is just a 4-minute walk away: you can enjoy an early morning swim in the sea and buy fresh croissants for breakfast as you walk back home to your beautiful villa.
There is a supermarket for all basic needs and several restaurants within easy walking distance, with choices from ‘feet in the sand’ to more sophisticated. Just five minutes drive away at La Croix Valmer, you’ll also find butchers, bakers, seafood and more. A back road reaches St Tropez in just 20 minutes, but the intrepid may walk there on the scenic route along the coastal paths.
The owners know that this most desirable area has so much to offer and so they enjoy sharing information with their guests about local attractions: superb wine domains, concerts in ancient chapels or chateaux, jazz and dancing in the amphitheatre in La Croix Valmer, nightlife in St Tropez, sailing and other nautical sports, golf, riding, polo and much more nearby.
But with this very special villa you have the option to put the car keys away and stroll to the lovely beaches, woods and restaurants.
