Superb 10-bed villa in Sainte-Maxime with stunning views over the Mediterranean and everything you could want from a luxury residence.
This buzzing little town is situated across the bay from the world famous fishing village. Whilst one of it’s attractions is the fact you can visit St. Tropez so easily either by taking the beautiful coast road around the bay or by hopping on one of the many boats heading directly to St. Tropez port, Sainte-Maxime really has so much to offer by itself.
This South facing village was founded around 1,000AD by the monks from the Lerin islands off Cannes and was named after one of the Saints of their order – Maxime. The village grew and in the 20th century it started to attract artists, poets and writers who enjoyed the climate, the beautiful surroundings and the azur blue water. The town is easily accessible from the A8 motorway and the drive up the coast road to Cannes and the rest of the French Riviera is stunning!
The town itself is awash with boutiques, bars and restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets, there are countless beach clubs and a wonderful port as well as a number of golf clubs and many other activities in this area, it even boasts it’s own waterfront casino for the high rollers!
Properties range from town centre apartments through to villas on the golf course and beautiful private estates in the hills. Home Hunts currently has one of these private estates available for sale and it really is an absolute gem.
This elegant property is located at the top of a private, gated domain in the hills of Ste. Maxime with sublime views over the 6 acres of grounds down to the sea. Architecturally beautiful and perfectly peaceful, the property really seduces you from the moment you enter through the impressive electric gates and down the sweeping driveway.
The main bastide offers 820m2 of living space including 10 bedrooms and nine bathrooms as well as beautiful big, bright and airy living spaces, a large farmhouse style kitchen and a unique and very impressive internal cloistered courtyard with ornamental fish pond.
There is a further 700m2 of usable space including a sauna, hammam, fitness room and many other bedrooms below the main property. There is also a separate guardian house and parking for probably 15 cars or more.
All of this stands in approximately six acres of landscaped grounds which include large manicured lawns, umbrella pines, palm trees, citrus trees, a rose garden, cypress lined walkways and a whole host of mediterranean shrubs as well as a tennis court, large infinity pool and pool house, jacuzzi, pond, boules court, children’s play area and countless shaded terraces to cool off in.
Charming, elegant, classy and timeless – this is one of those properties which is difficult not to fall in love with.
