With stunning views of the upmarket Cote D’azur coastline, Villa Douce is in a secure and private domain, surrounded by hills and vineyards near the prestigious Golf Club de Beauvallon. You can wander or drive down to nearby restaurants and the beaches of the Grimaud coastline or it is just a short distance from many other highlights of this area, whether exclusive beach clubs, idyllic villages or a wealth of activities for young and old.

Port Grimaud (5km), the nearest main village, is mostly a traffic free zone with a great marina that can only be accessed by foot or boat. There are lots of pretty coloured houses, Venetian style bridges and small boats to watch come and go and there appears to be an overall relaxed atmosphere, particularly compared to some of the more glamourous towns nearby. As some of the areas are privately owned you can take a guided boat trip to tour the marina and then kick back with a drink or meal in one of the marina’s cafes and restaurants. You can also enjoy great views of the marina from the Church of Saint-Francis of Assisi.

Fashionable Saint-Tropez (8km) is just a short drive away, or in the summer you can beat the traffic, park in Port Grimaud and take the ferry across from there during the day. Saint-Tropez is famous for its winding medieval streets, traditional pastel-painted fishermen’s cottages, boutiques and restaurants and the port with fishing boats moored alongside luxurious yachts. Those who enjoy the glitz and glamour must also visit Pampelonne Beach (16km) and its various beach restaurants including the exclusive Club 55, popular with celebrities as well as visitors.

Alternatively, head north to the family friendly resort of Sainte Maxime (7km) which enjoys a pleasant climate all year round as it is backed by hills and sheltered by the winds. Visit the pretty old town on a Thursday to experience the local market or head to one of the many sandy beaches in the area that offer a great variety of water-sports.

The older medieval village of Grimaud (9km) is located on top of a hill and stands out for its flower filled cobbled streets, ancient churches and stunning views. It offers traditional French boutiques, bars, a good range of restaurants plus a weekly antique market every Sunday.  One of the main highlights of the village, other than the typical Provencal character and history, is the ruins of the eleventh century castle at the top of the village.

Outdoor activities in the area include tennis, golf, horse-riding, go-karting, polo and funfairs for young children. In the summer months you can practice a variety of watersports at the sandy beaches near Port Grimaud and Sainte Maxime.  

The Cote d’Azur offers a magnificent coastline of sandy beaches with crystal clear sea-waters, not just the fashionable and private beach clubs but also beautifully unspoilt areas such as the six kilometres of La Croix Valmer coastline where you will find some stunning walks surrounded by diverse flora and fauna. Furthermore, inland there are delightful Provencal villages to discover such as Ramatuelle, Gassin, and Bormes les Mimosas and fields of lavender making this arguably one of the most beautiful areas in France.

    The concierge here are the best! Simply put, you cannot ask for better hosts to make your vacation experience truly one of luxury. We stayed at Villa Douce and the experience could not have been any better. The concierge were awesome and took care of every request with true professionalism and a smile. This trip surpassed every expectation from the top quality of the meals and the facilities to the scheduling of transportation and gracious and pleasant hosts during the entire week stay. I look forward to planning our next trip.

    Thank you to the host for such a fantastic service at Villa Douce. Food was excellent, your knowledge of the area and restaurants was great and we had a fabulous time. We miss you and hope we see you again next year!

  • Delightful holiday

    Posted by Jenni G. on 23/06/2017

    We stayed at Villa Douce in June with our family and friends and had the most wonderful holiday. Our hosts were delightful and catered for all our requests and served the most amazing meals. We have often stayed in villas in the area but on a rental basis only. Having the concierge and fully catered service made our holiday so much better - no wasted time doing the supermarket run, preparing meals and tidying up. I don't think I could holiday any other way now! The villa was beautiful with an amazing view, the kids loved the pool, and our group from the UK and USA had an unforgettably fun time. I wholeheartedly recommend. Can't wait for our next stay!
