Located between Saint-Tropez and Gorges du Verdon, this gorgeous domaine is set in complete privacy surrounded by a hillside garden and forest beyond. A characterful village hosting the region’s largest Provençal market is just a 10-minute drive away.

With a glorious heated swimming pool, poolside summer kitchen and various terraces in its vast garden, this is a picture-perfect house in the Dracénie region of Provence. It was a dream come true for its new owners who moved to southern France just a few years ago and they have renovated the house to the highest of standards. What especially attracted them to the domaine was the sense of great privacy, surrounded by a 20-hectare forested estate with vistas of vineyards and olive groves – there’s an authentic ‘wow factor’ here!

Sleeping up to 12 guests, there are six bedrooms across three floors. Guests can expect hotel quality mattresses, air-conditioning in the bedrooms, beautiful bath and shower rooms (some en suite) as well as fine furnishings and very tasteful décor across the villa’s elegant lounge, TV room and stylish kitchen-diner with everything you may need.

Stone steps lead through the landscaped Provençal garden down to the impressive salt-water swimming pool with its summer kitchen beneath the shaded pool house, including a shower and WC. There are other idyllic spots scattered across the garden, ideal for a morning coffee as the birds sing, al-fresco lunches beneath the fig tree and peaceful evening apéritifs - perhaps a glass of wine from a local family-run winery or even the award-winning vineyards of Château de Berne, only 10km away.

Families will adore the pétanque court, table tennis, basketball hoop and little football goals whilst there are some wonderful walking opportunities across the estate. When it’s time to leave this tranquil idyll, it’s just a 6km drive to an old Provençal village known for its pretty houses, fountains and atmospheric Tuesday morning market.

In the Var hinterland, Abbaye du Thoronet is just a 15-minute drive away, the magnificent waterfalls near Sillans-la-Cascade can be reached in half an hour whilst Aups, the gateway to the Parc Naturel Régional du Verdon, is only 29km by car. Closer to home, find horse-riding, mountain biking as well as watersports and summer swimming in the Argens River.

Heading south, wind through the Massif des Maures, stopping off in mountain villages, until you reach flower-filled Grimaud, the beaches of Sainte-Maxime or glamourous Saint-Tropez – it’s amazing that you could be on a ferry sailing from Sainte-Maxime to Saint-Tropez within an hour.

In the Var hinterland, Domaine Saint Peyre enjoys a stunning setting within a 20-hectare forested estate with views towards vineyards and olive trees so typical of the Dracénie region of Provence. This is a fantastic location for exploring pretty Var villages, visiting award-winning vineyards, partaking in watersports along the Argens River and spending time by the Gorges du Verdon and the French Riviera.

There are local villages around a 10-minute drive to the south and north. The most popular one, 6km by car, is an old Provençal village famed for its Tuesday morning market, the largest in the Var department, and its surrounding vineyards. Even if not market day, it’s a joy to potter around its lanes, coming across pretty squares, fountains and old houses. There are a couple of supermarkets just outside the village as well as the Michelin starred Chez Bruno (8km) and the award-winning vineyards and wine-tasting cellar of Château de Berne (10km).

Indeed, there are plenty of opportunities to sample excellent local wines both around the village and slightly further afield near Vidauban (16km) including the vineyards of Château d'Astros where ‘Le Château de ma Mère’ was filmed. The Argens River runs near Vidauban and beyond, a paradise for keen watersport enthusiasts with canoeing, kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding opportunities close by. Mountain biking and horse-riding are other popular pursuits in the area.

Close to the domaine you will come across character villages including Flayosc (18km), Salernes (20km) and Cotignac (22km) as well as summer festivities, markets and brocantes. The waterfalls at Cascade de Sillans are half an hour by car whilst Aups, the gateway to the Parc Naturel Régional du Verdon, is 29km away – the south shore of Lac de Sainte-Croix with its incredible scenery and outdoor activities can be reached within an hour.

Heading south, drive into the heart of the Massif des Maures to mountain villages surrounded by oak and chestnut forests such as Le Plan-de-la-Tour (38km), La Garde-Freinet (30km) or even flower-filled Grimaud (40km) with incredible views towards the bay of Saint-Tropez.

Indeed, Saint-Tropez is around an hour by car with the exclusive beach clubs of Plage de Pampelonne just a little further whilst the family-friendly shores of Sainte-Maxime are 45km by car. To avoid the heavy summer traffic in the area, it may be better to drive to Sainte-Maxime and catch the ferry to Saint-Tropez. 

If you wish to spend further time by the French Riviera coastline, consider driving to the historic seaside resort of Saint-Raphaël (46km) and neighbouring Fréjus (43km), loved for their rich heritage, summer ambience and glorious beaches. You could even continue onwards to Cannes (85km) to really soak up the glamour of the glistening Côte d'Azur.

Region

The Provençal way of life is one that’s deeply tempting for anyone who’s been feeling the need to get away from it all. This is a place where the Mediterranean weather turns fields of corn and lavender into picture-perfect backdrops, where you can sip your locally bought wine and enjoy the landscapes before heading out and tackling them head-on with a range of great activities for families, groups of friends and adventurous foodies. Better yet, our range of villas in Provence and chateaux and holiday homes in the Côte d’Azur make the perfect base to explore this enchanting region!

Reviews

  • Breathtaking

    on 31/08/2023

    We all had a great time at Domaine Saint Peyre. Without a doubt better and more beautiful than shown and described. Felt like our own plot of Provence ! There we were with parents and adult children in France for a family wedding, and there was always a space/room/place to have your own little bit of peace and quiet. The pool is well thought out and very well equipped with everything you need and the shaded dining area in the garden is to die for! The hosts were so helpful. Would highly recommend!

  • Family holiday

    on 08/08/2023

    Beautiful domain, very quiet. Nice and large swimming pool with pool house. Villa decorated with great taste and equipped with every comfort, beautiful spacious rooms and bathrooms. Warm welcome and hospitality from the owners/managers. Strongly recommend for a family holiday.

  • Huge pool area

    on 22/06/2023

    We had the most wonderful time at Domaine Saint Peyre. It was even better and more beautiful than shown in the pictures. It's an absolute paradise. Even though we were a large group there was always a secret private place. The huge pool area is amazing and you have plenty possibilities to relax. The house is equipped with all you need and decorated with so much love and detail that we felt at home immediately. Thank you so much for having us - we will come back.

  • Breathtaking

    on 17/05/2023

    A breathtaking, active and sporty stay with the hockey men at Domaine Saint Peyre. How wonderful we did it together. Enjoyed the overwhelming estate with dazzling views and deafening silences. Here you can relax, in the middle of beautiful nature and stay fit with the intensive cycling routes through hill landscapes and idyllic villages. Can you compete on one of the many golf courses (our case Endreol) and gets fresh again in the pool. Thank you very much and hope to come back someday.

  • Wonderful

    on 28/04/2023

    What a wonderful stay we have had, the beautiful warm days, the magnificent scenery, the long walks and lunches. The hosts went out of their way to make sure our stay was as pleasant and comfortable as possible. The house is a typical Provençale house with ample space to relax around the grounds, spectacular pool or comfortable lounges on the patio to soak up the views. Sleep was not an issue thanks to the quietness of the property and the comfort of the beds. We are looking forward to our next stay.

  • Spectacular

    on 15/04/2023

    The past week has been spectacular ! Our kind hosts have ensured we enjoy the beautiful Provence environs. Our accommodation has been all we could need for with incredible views of the lush valley. Springtime has burst so we have had many local walks in the area and travelled to Lorgues for lunch and shopping in the fine weather. We are sad that our stay at Domaine Saint Peyre ends tomorrow as there is so much more to see and experience. A perfect location for a restful break with family, friends or as a couple. We look forward to returning here…

  • Little slice of heaven

    on 22/08/2022

    We had such a memorable and relaxing trip to Domaine Saint Peyre. It is a private, very spacious and hugely restorative place with breath taking views over the surrounding countryside. We holidayed there with another family of 5, so 10 of us in total. There was more than enough space for us all in the house and extensive grounds, between the refreshing and large pool, plentiful patios, dining spots, petanque and tabletennis areas………there was always a place to suit your mood, relax and have fun. All of this is thanks to the wonderful owners who have not only appointed the house beautifully, they have set the tone with their friendly, respectful and hugely helpful approach. The host even rustled up some delicious meals for us on a couple of evenings. I would highly recommend visiting this little slice of heaven.

  • Slowingdown is the keyword!

    on 27/07/2022

    We had a truly fantastic stay at Domaine Saint Peyre. The villa is even more beautiful and charming than in the photos and it breathes pure relaxation. The owners have thought of everything and have an eye for detail. The interior is charming and warm and the small details complete it. From Rituals shower foam in the bathrooms to sunscreen by the pool and of course the welcome basket for the first evening with delicious rose, olives, cheeses and some breakfast supplies for the first morning. Slowing down is the keyword in this beautiful villa. An absolutely delightful family villa in Provence. We look forward to coming back!
