Enjoying panoramic sea views, magnificent, 2 acre gardens and a top quality location that combines perfect quiet, an unspoilt environment and proximity to the village, a generously proportioned and particularly well appointed 'tropezien' style villa, built by the father of the current owners, to the very highest standard. Surrounded by the most wonderful rose gardens, olive groves and old stone 'restanques' (retaining walls) this rare and most handsome property also enjoys a flat, brink of the hill, south facing location. Some of its other, numerous qualities include: a huge, pool-facing kitchen (with fireplace), several sunny and pergola-shaded terraces, a convivial summer dining room facing the pool and sunsets and absolute privacy. First impressions couldn't be better; majestic old gates and gate posts, a very long attractive drive leading past the caretakers' house, a huge 'cours d'honneur' and an archway of jasmine over the front door! The living room, with its majestic fireplace and library, opens via full width French doors onto a superb terrace and a few steps leading down to the large pool. Also facing the pool is the master bedroom suite with its luxurious and extremely spacious bathroom. As indicated above the kitchen is simply fabulous, not only by its size and fireplace but also its spectacular sea views. At this same level is an attractive study/library (possible 5th bedroom), 2 other very large bedroom suites, both with private terraces, and an independent studio.. Positioned to take full advantage of the evening sun over the pool is a generous pool-house/summer dining room just behind which is a large greenhouse. There is also a built-in garage. In the basement there is a wine cellar, laundry room, boiler room (with Weissman boiler), larder/cellar and extensive storage. The gardens are what make this superb property truly exceptional since the owner was not only a keen connoisseur of roses but also of traditional Provencal gardens. He invested hugely in the dry-stone walling (although some of them are extremely old) and the creation of an olive grove, but also planted numerous citrus trees, bougainvillea, mimosa, jasmin, vines etc, with a view to having flowers and perfume all year round (thanks also to the especially mild micro-climate on this protected, south facing hill). staff house. As indicated above this is perfectly independent and even quite distant from the main house and has its own garaging, gardens etc.
