About The Experience
Paradise awaits a group of friends or family at this seafront villa nestled in a small village between St Tropez and Toulon. This is the perfect spot for those seeking a discreet beach retreat amidst the beautiful, unspoiled coastal countryside. Tiered garden terraces offer panoramic views of the ocean and the Iles du Levant, as well as outdoor dining and direct beach access.
Location Description

The villa is located between St Tropez and Lavandou, overlooking the rocky coastline that sits below the hamlet of Le Dattier. This pristine mini-village of 15 houses is set in one of the few remaining sections of natural coastal countryside between Nice and Toulon. It is situated between Cavalaire and the next village to the west, Le Rayol. Guests can walk up the hill to the hamlet and then along paths to the west or east. The path to the east offers a stunning walk along the cliffs to Cavalaire, where there is good shopping, a Wednesday market, restaurants, a tennis club, and windsurfing and boat rentals. The path to the west follows the old railway track to Le Rayol, where there are also good restaurants. Golf is available at Ste Maxime, Beauvallon or Valcros (5 km west of Le Lavandou), and there is a championship course at Draguignan.

Exterior Description
The property is located in a remote location, and guests must travel along a challenging dirt road for 350 m (.217 miles) before reaching the property. An automatic gate opens onto the grounds, which house a fenced, tri-level garden with flowering plants. The top level features the main dining area outside the kitchen, complete with a Weber barbecue and dining table. The terrace then wraps around in front of the living room. The middle level has comfortable chairs and a table for drinks. There are several sun loungers and dining chairs for each of two outside dining tables, as well as chairs for a covered dining table. The spacious bottom level runs from the apartment to the steps and path that lead to the beach, where there is a flat section of rock for sunbathing and swimming. There is very limited outside access to this bay, so it is essentially private to villa guests. Parking spaces for 4 cars are available.

Customer Reviews

It was one of the best family vacation weeks we've had. The fact that the property provides direct access to the Mediterranean and outstanding views makes it memorable.
Enjoyed Most:
Being able to access the sea right in your own backyard.
Enjoyed Least:
The patio needed sweeping.
Surrounding Area:
We liked that it was a family oriented and under-the-radar part of the Côte d'azure.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Cavalaire su Mer. Yes it was abot a 20-30 min walk
Tips or Restaurants:
Be ready to be amazed by the views and your own personal swimming cove. If you need to remain inside due to weather then it may not be as exciting. We found that Rayol and Canadel had nicer family oriented sand beaches that were beautiful and easily accessible.
GPS worked fine.
