What makes a vacation villa feel like your home away from home? Does it reflect you and your everyday life, or is it a divergence from reality into your fantasy way of living? One of the benefits of vacationing in a villa is that you can pick and choose your ideal style and location combination. Best of all? It is all yours for a week or two… or as long as you want to stay.
Looking for a home away from home near St Tropez, France? Consider WIMCO’s Villa CEN CTH, (The Cork House) a 4 bed, 4 bath Bastide style home perched outside the village of Grimaud. This is a perfect villa rental for a family or couples interested in being near St Tropez, but outside of the busy village center of St. Tropez itself. The Cork House provides an ideal, tucked away location with easy access to St. Tropez and Grimaud.
The villa itself, while traditional in design, is equipped with modern features for your comfort. You are welcomed by the white stucco, blue-gray shuttered façade, and inside there is nothing but clean white walls, natural light and sleek tiled floors. The main living area features an extensive library, French doors that flood the space with natural light, and an enormous hearth that brings warmth to the space. Upstairs, the bedrooms and bathrooms sparkle with details inspired by the French countryside. Natural stone countertops and vintage mirror frames dazzle the immaculate space.
Outside, the grounds of this villa are immaculately manicured, giving way to views of the rolling hills of the French countryside. The outdoor patio is ideal for enjoying an alfresco meal, or simply relaxing. The private pool is a real treat on warm days when you want to enjoy a swim and an afternoon lounging in the recliners.
Villa CEN CTH is conveniently located– just a short five minute drive to the hillside town of Grimaud and a fifteen minute drive to St. Tropez. Grimaud is best described as a medieval village, perched in the hills. Grimaud truly embodies everything traditionally associated with a small French village. Walking is easy but can be uphill at times, and there are many shops, restaurants and historical sights to take in. Something that shouldn’tbe missed is the Chateau de Grimaud, where during the summer months, the ramparts act as an outdoor theater with the castle as a backdrop and the terraces used as seating.
Driving from Grimaud towards the sea will bring you to St. Tropez and the famous Pampelonne beach. By choosing to rent a vacation home for a week such as The Cork Tree House, you are afforded freedom to decide how much or how little of the St. Tropez action you want to experience while staying at your home away from home. Consider WIMCO Villas when making your selection.
