This luxurious seafront villa in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region of southeastern France is a rare find, even in such an exclusive market. An outstanding estate blessed with provincial charm, it offers every convenience, unique surroundings, and uncompromising exclusivity. The massive 625-square-meter (6,727-square-foot) home has eight bedrooms, six bathrooms, and 14 lavishly designed rooms overall.
Located on the Mediterranean Sea at Anthéor, halfway between Cannes and Saint-Tropez, the main house is enclosed by more than one acre (4,047 square meters) of sculptured grounds blended into the raw nature of the region. On the ground floor of the villa, there’s an enormous open-plan living area, a gourmet kitchen, a formal dining area, a library, a fitness suite, an indoor pool, and a bar and wine cellar.
The home’s upstairs features a stunning master suite, three additional suites, and a children’s room, each with its own en-suite bath and balcony. Also on this level are two additional patios and a secret garden space with its own shower area completely immersed in jasmine flowers. The obvious attention to detail, the welcoming sense of wonderful terracotta tiles and huge wooden beams, and a sumptuous atmosphere pervade the entire home.
Moving outside, there are abundant entertainment and relaxation spaces, such as a large outdoor dining terrace, a barbeque area, a wonderful outdoor pool, an outdoor shower area, secret gardens, and not one, but two private coves at the seashore. The estate also has a large garage, a separate studio, a second guest house, and a caretaker’s apartment.
The climate of the Côte d‘Azur is Mediterranean, of course, with hot, dry summers and mild, humid winters. The Mistral wind occurs there, but the area is often sheltered from the gusts by the Massif des Maures and the Esterel. The estate’s owners and their guests will also enjoy the 30 beautiful beaches, countless coves, and unique nature nearby. In Anthéor, 3 kilometers away, there are scores of wonderful cafes and restaurants, as well as many scenic attractions along the Corniche d’Or, one of France’s most beautiful roads.
