This magnificent, 20,000 square foot, Belle Epoque mansion, sits at the top of a property of 7.5 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, with breathtaking views from all sides over these gardens and to the sea. One enjoys these views from the many terraces or by strolling down a grand staircase edged by royal palms, cypress and fragrant pines, typical of the Riviera.
On each level one encounters lushly landscaped gardens and pots overflowing with flowers. The way then meanders down a wide, rocky path to the sea with it’s private beach, where there are chaises and a grotto with bathroom, changing area and fridge and bar for drinks. It is a slice of heaven.
Typical of the Napoleon III style, the mansion was built at the turn of the 20th century, designed by the architect H.G. Tersling. Even the pool garden is artistically and beautifully landscaped with lily ponds bordering the pool and interspersed with pergolas and flower beds. There are several areas for dining and lounging outside to take in the beauty of the surroundings.
The former owner is a well-known interior designer who realized a fantastic decor to fit with the grandeur of the surroundings yet remaining immensely comfortable and at once playful and incredibly imaginative with the utmost in quality. The new owner has updated and added many amenities as well as wellness programs and water fitness and sports from the private beach. This is an outstanding property by anyone’s standards and a wonderful location for a large family vacation, or to celebrate an occasion or event.
The property is located between St Tropez and Marseille, just south of Toulon for easy access to all of Provence and the Riviera via the autoroute nearby. This makes it very convenient for travel by car or by boat. The property is very private and completely fenced and secured by gate and gatehouse.
Two new annexes have been added in 2022 , a 7 bedroom bastide plus studio and a 5 bedroom cottage. Photos will be available by August 2022. Facade renderings are available.
