Set in immaculate private grounds with silvery olive trees stretching to the skyline and ochre sands in sight, this property tops the elite ranks. With the charm of a bygone era coupled with modern master touches, Villa Victoria is a luxury zone destined for the stars – perfect for yourself then.
It’s getting late when you touch down on St Tropez terrain, but you needn’t go through airport arrivals thanks to Villa Victoria’s very own helipad. The rest of the guests will be arriving tomorrow which means you and your partner have the gift of time to explore this gorgeous villa in all its glory.
You step out into the cool night and observe the red glow of fading sunlight stretching ahead of you, above the glistening Mediterranean Sea. You can spot a few beach-goers still lapping up the silky sands of Canoubiers beach, conveniently located on your doorstep. The muffled sound of a celebration can be heard from somewhere in the direction of St Tropez village, just five minutes away, but otherwise just birds and your own relaxed breathing. Pure peace.
You turn to meet the winking lights of the villa, along with your waving host inviting you to discover what comforts lie within. You take your time as you climb the stairway, mapping out your days to come. As an early riser, you picture dawn swims in the steaming pool before heading to the pool house for a spot of reading over an espresso. Later you’ll all enjoy an alfresco lunch, prepared by your personal Michelin chef on the barbecue, followed by a competitive game of boules. And, of course, evening cocktails and dancing on the terrace to bookend each and every flawless day.
As soon as you enter the warmth of the villa, you’re struck by its simplicity which shows itself in the mineral tones and refined décor, much to your taste. Your host offers you a drink to toast your home for the next week, leading you to the overflowing wine cave. He jokes about one set of guests who asked for it to be restocked just three days into their holiday, and you laugh along knowing full well history might repeat itself. You sink into the comfortable sofa as he brings you a spread of fruits and cheeses, as if he read your mind.
As the first guests to arrive, you get to choose your bedroom first from a range of seven sprawling suites. With each boasting its own double bed and en-suite bathroom, it’s difficult to decide. But you opt for one of the rooms with terrace access for faster entry to your outdoor haven. You’re quickly settling in for a blissful week ahead, just one more sleep until you get to share this gem with all of your friends.

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 …….
Your personal chef will prepare a wonderful spread at lunchtime so you can dine al-fresco in the sunshie. Dinner is then served on 6 nights of your stay with a menu designed to suit you. With an emphasis on using specially selected fresh local and seasonal ingredients you will be served a melt-in-the-mouth meal befitting of a Michelin starred restaurant. From sun soaked BBQ’s on the terrace to delicious locally inspired menus, your chef will be in touch with you personally before your arrival to discuss your preferences.
The villa provides a stocked drinks fridge and a stocked nibbles fridge so you can help yourself during the day. Champagne is served with canapés on 6 nights of your stay. Award winning local wines served with dinner.
The chef is happy to cater to specific dietary requirements. Just let us know about any special requests regarding dietary requirements such as gluten free options. Maybe you’re celebrating a birthday? A cake bedecked with candles can be arranged or maybe just favourite dishes, nothing is too much trouble, just ask. Maybe you’d like an earlier high tea for the youngest children? We will do our very best to ensure that your wishes are granted.
