-- NEWPORT, R.I., June 2001 -- How do you find the ultimate privacy in a very trendy, public place like St. Tropez? WIMCO, one of the world’ s leading villa companies, suggests renting a villa.
Villa La Roseraie, for example, is available this summer and fall. Just 10 minutes by car from the center of St. Tropez , it is located on the manicured grounds of an estate, Les Parcs de St. Tropez. The villa, which sleeps 10, has its own pool but is just five minutes to beach and shops. Available for a two-week minimum, it comes with 15 hours of maid service weekly. From
June 23 to Sept. 1 the rate is $18,445 weekly but drops to $13,220 weekly from Sept. 1 to Oct. 6, and to $7,075 from Oct. 6 to Jan. 5, 2002.
Much of the attraction of St. Tropez is due to the magnificent four-mile stretch of white sandy beach, La Plage de Pampelonne. This picturesque old port also offers opportunities for discovering an unsurpassed selection of places to dine.
This fall in St. Tropez there will high excitement when vintage and classic yachts arrive after the Cowes 150th birthday celebration in the Isle of Wight in August. There will be four Mediterranean regattas, the Prada Veteran Boat Rally in Sardinia, the Monaco Classic Week, the Regates Royales in Cannes and the culmination of 12-meter America’s Cup yachts ever assembled.
