A&K: Tell us what you like about the area in which the villa is located?
Owner: Sunrise over the sea; sunsets on the hillsides; walking to the beach; enchanting St Tropez.
A&K: Where would you recommend that guests visit during their stay?
Owner: Stylish St Tropez has to be a guest’s first stop. Popular Pampelonne is the region’s longest and most famous beach. It offers an excellent selection of beach clubs. Then guests should explore all the nearby charming villages, hidden away in the hill. Vinophiles mustn’t leave the area without touring all the surrounding beautiful vineyards to sample the excellent local Provençal wines.
A&K: Are there any regional delicacies you recommend your guests try whilst here?
Owner: A fresh and delicate Provençal rosé and bouillabaisse, a traditional local fish stew served with garlic-infused croutons – originally a fisherman’s stew.
A&K: What’s the ideal time of year to visit to enjoy the villa and its location?
Owner: The climate here is excellent year-round. Even during winter, we enjoy lunch on the terrace on most days. My favourite months are April, May, September (for the spectacular Les Voiles sailing regatta) and October. Being here during the festive season is also fabulous.
A&K: What would you like your guests’ first and last impression of the house to be?
Owner: I’d like them to notice that the villa’s luxury and comfort complements the peaceful Mediterranean garden.
