to speak to a specialist
If the walls could talk at Le Preverger they would recount endless stories of the bohemian age of the sixties and seventies when bon viveurs, artists and stars of the silver screen gathered here to exchange anecdotes and enjoy the liberal atmosphere of the Côte d’Azur in its heyday. Previously owned by Jeanne Moreau, and later Laura Ashley, today Le Preverger has been transformed and lovingly redesigned by renowned designer Nicky Haslam and its new owners, ready to welcome and delight discerning guests for the first time through Abercrombie & Kent.
The estate stands out as one of the jewels of the French Riviera, set just a short distance from La Garde-Freinet and a short drive from the glitz and glamour of Saint Tropez. Without another house in sight, whether you’re coming by land, sea or air, we will ensure your arrival at Le Preverger will be both seamless and swift. We will gladly meet you with a limousine or, if you prefer, we can arrange a private helicopter that will whisk you straight from the airport to your enchanting home from home. Once ensconced in the villa, we can arrange access to luxury cars for travel to the decadent beach clubs of Pampelonne, the numerous shops of Saint Tropez or discreet country hideaways that pepper the area.
Offering over 60 hectares of idyllic woodland in addition to 1,000 olive trees and a small private vineyard, the natural surroundings evoke a genuine sense of tranquility, calm and escapism rarely found on the bustling Riviera. Under the stewardship of Laura Ashley the vision was for Le Preverger to become largely self-sufficient, and that same ethos remains to this day with the gardens offering wild mushrooms and asparagus, peaches, apricots, figs, strawberries, chestnuts and a herb garden as well as fresh eggs; all plentifully available. Spilling across the hilltops just inland from the sun-bleached white sands of the famed coast, Le Preverger offers the best of both worlds: glamour and utter relaxation.
For those who love fine food and wine then the private wine cellar and professional chef service will not disappoint. A property that has welcomed guests such as Sophia Loren, Brigitte Bardot and Princess Diana, Le Preverger effortlessly provides the sense of refinement from a bygone era, while managing to marry this with a sense of fun and freedom, geared to family life, as it used to be.
A paradise for children
Children will love the space to roam and explore the grounds, to enjoy a game of tennis, a good night's sleep in one of the Gypsy 'caravans', a swim in the pool, the trampoline, table tennis or the large outdoor model train track. We find that children of all ages are inevitably drawn to the estate's own entertainment room, Les Sangliers, complete with its own fitted bar and games room.
Health & Leisure
In these days of health consciousness, guests at Le Preverger can exercise as well as relax. An on-site tennis court is perfect for casual athletes and racquet sports enthusiasts and a perfect work out before a cooling swim in the elegant lap pool. The myriad paths through the woodlands are ideal for running or exploring by mountain bike, while there is also a small gym available for those seeking a more vigorous experience.
