La Petite Gemme is a luxury five-bedroom villa occupying a scenic spot in the Cote D’Azur countryside. This beautifully designed property has its own pool and is just 20 minutes from the glamour of St Tropez.
At La Petite Gemme you can pick the pace of your holiday. Set in the quiet countryside, the villa is walking distance from the Provencal village of Cogolin and just a short drive from Grimaud, a particularly picturesque village with winding lanes and, medieval ruins. If you’re looking for a bit more buzz, join the jet setters in nearby St Tropez; the town itself is an 18-minute drive. Head into the town’s main square, Place des Lices, on a Tuesday or Saturday morning to experience the bustling open-air market, selling fresh produce and stylish souvenirs. For the most exclusive beach clubs on the French Riveria, venture a little further to the famous Pampelonne beach. The 5km stretch of white sand is home to dozens of private beach clubs including Nikki Beach and Club 55. Nice is the nearest airport, about a 90-minute drive from the villa.
The villa has been designed with an artist’s eye; from the ornate furniture and exquisite fabrics inside, to the striking sculptures in the gardens. The five bedrooms are all air-conditioned with en suite bathrooms. There’s a large, elegant sitting room, plus a separate family room with satellite TV and a DVD player. The house has a modern fitted kitchen and dining room, as well as a shaded dining area outside with a barbeque. There are several terraces within the three-acre garden, a swimming pool and boules pitch.
This property is run to a very high standard with housekeeping five days a week, for four hours a day. Bed linen, bath and beach towels are provided and changed weekly. The local concierge offers a meet and greet service to help you settle in to your holiday home.
This family-friendly villa accommodates up to 10 guests, offering the best of both worlds. Relax by your private pool and savour the serenity of the French countryside, or jump in a cab and hit the beach parties of St Tropez.
