The property is ideally situated between the village of Saint-Tropez and the beaches of Pampelonne, set in beautifully landscaped gardens extending to nearly 8,000 m² (2 acres). With majestic palm trees and a profusion of herbaceous borders and flowering shrubs, this fine contemporary home – dating back to 1910 – enjoys breathtaking views over the Baie des Canoubiers.
There would have been few comparable properties on this privileged hillside back in 1910, when one could choose the optimal location, before having to bow to often ill-conceived planning regulations as one is obliged today. Whilst many of its original features have been retained in the total renovation carried out by one of Europe’s most respected interior designers, the finish and lavish specification is well up to the highest international standard of gracious living today.
The extraordinary light for which Saint-Tropez is famous – that same light which has inspired painters and writers for so many decades – pours into Villa Bellevue’s airy interior, intensified by the unusually high ceilings. The elegant reception rooms open onto vast terraces, the garden complete with a beautiful pool and a superbly equipped summer kitchen, ideal for outdoor entertaining on a grand scale.
Located on the first floor, the master bedroom suite and three guests’ suites provide every comfort. Two further guest bedrooms, each with en-suite bathroom, are to be found in the ground floor annexe, as well as an equipped spa with steam room, Jacuzzi and massage table and outdoor fitness terrace.
You will be able to contemplate such spectacular views of the snow on the Alps in the far distance during the winter months. Or the beautiful sea view, with the village and harbour of Sainte-Maxime in the middle distance. And to animate this exquisite view, some of the most luxurious yachts to be seen in the Mediterranean, come to seek the shelter of the Baie des Canoubiers in the foreground, when the breeze is up in the summer.
