About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr G.B Everington

Love France! Found this house through a friend some years ago and instantly fell in love with it! Have many happy memories and spent some wonderful times here and if others can do the same that’s amazing!

Year property purchased 2010
Why this location? Love the three balconies with different views and never tire of looking across the bay to St Tropez. Calm and quiet yet within easy reach of the bustling town.
The umbrella pines...being amongst them gives shade in the sunshine during the hottest days, and provides a peaceful setting.
Unique benefits of property The house is in a gated community with lots of space to play in or walk round, with the pool and the tennis court and table tennis, there is also plenty to do.

The Owner Recommends

Activities

There are lots of activities once you have exhausted the pool etc, Aqualand is close by . On the sea front there are jet ski's, diving, glass bottomed boats and boats to hire. There are public beaches/ private beaches where you can hire a sun lounger and have your drinks delivered!
Hire a bike or scooter and go explore or take the "bateau vert" to St Tropez..they run all night in the summer so you can try out the nightlife then get back easily!
The Brocante market on a tuesday morning in St Tropez is well worth a visit and in the summer there are markets in the streets of the old town in Ste MAxime, or a friday morning market in town too...buy your fruit and veg and then a traditional straw bag to take it home!
