Marvel at the beauty of the Mediterranean as you step out on to the grand terrace, surrounded by the mesmerising landscapes of the Calanques. In one of the most stunning settings in southern France, this prestigious villa is wonderful in every way with its elegant interiors, private swimming pool and vast domaine, only a short walk to the beach and charming fishing village of Cassis.

Once an admired French Riviera hotel, follow the footsteps of famous names across Villa Namaste which has undergone a complete renovation in recent years. Yet it’s not all about the glitz and glamour here, instead there’s a sense of understated luxury with beautifully designed living spaces, high-end features, valuable works of art alongside an overall feeling of great comfort. All three reception rooms and the kitchen face the sea with doors opening up to the huge terrace or escape the summer sun in the cinema room with its projector, large screen and popcorn machine.

Inviting bedrooms can be found on all three floors of the main villa, as well as a separate annexe, most with en suite bath or shower rooms and many with juliet balconies looking out towards the sea. The spacious top-floor master double is the most impressive with its sea-facing bath, double walk-in shower and private terrace enjoying the very best vistas of the Côte d'Azur.

The 150-acre domaine, within the Calanques National Park, is home to picture-perfect terraces, idyllic spots for al-fresco dining and landscaped gardens with olive and fruit trees, lavender and other aromas of the Mediterranean. By the courtyard garden, the Orangerie is a tranquil place for yoga and games or walk up to the traditional Pétanque court so typical of the south of France. Not to mention the incredible swimming pool and teakwood terrace in an idyllic position amongst the towering pines.

The most adventurous can follow the steep path and steps down towards a rocky bay with turquoise-coloured water, reached in about five minutes, or stroll to Cassis about a 15-minute walk away. It’s a small coastal town full of charm with gorgeous pastel-coloured houses, café terraces and characterful restaurants.

Explore the Calanques National Park on foot with the most breathtaking hiking trails or set out to sea on kayak, canoe or boat to discover the spectacular scenery of this dramatic coastline. Laze on postcard worthy beaches, sample wines from the vineyards surrounding Cassis or head out by car to visit La Ciotat, Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer and even the vibrant cities of Toulon and Marseille.

Villa Namaste is set within a 150-acre domaine, part of the Calanques National Park on the French Riviera, almost equidistant between Marseille and Toulon and just a short stroll from the charming port of Cassis.

It’s around a 15-minute walk into the small town of Cassis. It’s a delightful place for a coffee on one of its café terraces or a leisurely lunch in a characterful restaurant. As you explore the narrow lanes of inviting shops, there’s almost an ambience of Provence yet surrounded by French Riviera bays and the pretty port. Look out for night markets in the height of the summer and all year round you can visit the twice-weekly market for locally produced fruit, vegetables, cheeses and of course fish. You will also find the catch of the day being sold on Quai des Baux each morning.

Beach-lovers can seek out many idyllic spots along this part of the coastline – the nearest bay is around a 5-minute walk away (via a steep path with steps), a
rocky shore with crystal-clear water just perfect for swimming and snorkelling (pack aqua shoes). Further along, the town of Cassis is home to Plage de la Grande Mer, a scenic beach offering kayak hire and wind-surfing, or you may prefer to seek out number of beautiful coves and bays nearby often only reached by foot or boat.

The Calanques National Park offers incredible walks, many starting off or passing through Cassis, with hikes for a range of abilities across its 300km of marked trails, all with the most spectacular scenery of sea and mountains. Hiring a boat or kayak is another great way to explore this coastline, reaching secluded coves, whilst there are also many excellent climbing and cycling opportunities.

Wine-tasting is another wonderful experience in this part of the French Riviera, with vineyards around Cassis where you can meet the wine-growers, learn all about this region’s wine-producing history and eco-system as well as sample or purchase some of Cassis’ unique wines.

Further along the coast, follow the famous Route des Crêtes through the Calanques to La Ciotat, a pretty coastal town around 10km away where you will find atmospheric markets, a number of shops and restaurants, lovely beaches and boat trips across to the stunning natural island, île Verte.

Continue further to places such as Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer or the exciting towns of Toulon and Hyères. Alternatively, head west and spend the day in the culturally vibrant city of Marseille, around 30km away, with its handsome buildings, characterful places to dine as well as bustling markets.

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!

It’s around a 15-minute stroll into the heart of charming Cassis with its delightful shops, café terraces, markets and port. There is a little road train that tours the town which youngsters may enjoy. Cassis is also home to a town beach with kayaks and windsurfing opportunities.

The beach near Villa Namaste is incredibly beautiful with rocky shores and turquoise-coloured water, ideal for snorkelling, swimming and appreciating the wild and natural surroundings – it is reached via a steep path with steps, so more accessible to older children.

Of course, this region is also well known for its incredible hiking trails of the Calanques National Park and there are many routes that are suitable for families, depending on your experience. Boat trips departing Cassis or kayaking excursions are another fantastic way to experience the stunning landscapes of this coastline.  

The winding coastal road, Route des Crêtes, leads to La Ciotat where there are boat trips across to the beautiful island of île Verte. Enjoy the beaches around La Ciotat or continue onwards to Bandol and Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer, where there is also a waterpark with various slides and pools.

Around half an hour by car, families may also enjoy a day out at ZOA Parc near Sanary-sur-Mer with its animals, birds and gardens.
