Villa Amelie floats on the hills of old Grimaud, a domain boasting an 11th century chateau and striking views of the Golfe de St Tropez. Inside her walls is a rustic haven waiting to be explored, and you might just be the perfect suitor.
Stretched across the sun lounger in the midday heat, the infinity pool and sea beyond appear to be a seamless body of water glistening in your eyeline. You dip a toe into its heated depths before submerging yourself, and swim to the other side where you hang on the edge of St Tropez’s beauty.
You feel as if you’re inside a postcard picture; the distant hills seem to act as gates for this private paradise, dotted with the stone-walled houses of the old town. Turning around to look at Villa Amelie, you appreciate how she complements this stunning region, with her radiant walls housing luxury within.
The tastefully bold interior, polished silverware, velvet touches – the whole package invites you to sit back and enjoy these sublime surroundings.
To the left of the pool, a few of your friends are relaxing in the heated hot tub, their fizzing glasses of champagne rivalling the bubbles of the jacuzzi. They call you over but you’re not quite at their level of merry yet, so you opt for the plush outdoor seating area instead to enjoy a cocktail or two with your other half.
The sights of the nearby beaches of Pampelonne are calling for you to raise your quiet afternoon of indulgence to more socialite ranks, with bustling beach clubs and the refreshing breeze from the Mediterranean Sea. But first, it’s time to line your stomachs with the most delicious specialties your villa chef can rustle up.
The wonderful staff have laid the outdoor table for an alfresco lunch, featuring the freshest mussels, scallops, sea bass, and a variety of grilled vegetables. You head inside quickly to raid the wine fridge, stocked with a range of mouth-watering wines from the nearby Domaine de la Colline, before joining the group to enjoy the finest flavours and company St Tropez has to offer.

There is something wonderfully comforting and indulgent about having somebody else take control of the kitchen. When that person is a talented chef with hands-on experience in high-end restaurants, you know you’re in for a mouth-watering treat. We handpick our villa partners for their beautiful properties, stand out service and their dedication to gastronomy. Here’s a taste of what you can expect when staying in one of our catered villas:
When you awake from your dreamy sleep you can rest assured that breakfast has been taken care of and awaits you. Freshly squeezed oranges and healthy fruit juices along with a selection of delicious teas and coffee are just the start. Yoghurts, crispy cereals, fresh fruits and a tempting display of fresh breads & delicate pastries complete the table. Your chef will also prepare a daily cooked hot option for you - how do you like your eggs? If creamy porridge with honey or simply toast hits the spot, just ask, it’s on the menu. With breakfast taken care of all you have to do is decide how to spend the day. A trip to a stunning beach or perhaps time relaxing by your own private pool – decisions, decisions! Life can be tough …….
