Villa La Tourelle

St Tropez , French Riviera
Sleeps 8 / 4 bedrooms
A haven of luxury and peace in the heart of St Tropez

Tucked away in a quiet corner of central St Tropez, this 14th century former vicarage is replete with character and charm. Step inside the walled garden, overlooked by the villa's signature tower and filled with fountains, palm trees, cacti and fragrant flowers, and you are transported to a tranquil world away from the hustle and bustle of the French Riviera. Yet the markets, bars and restaurants of sophisticated St Tropez are just a few minutes' walk away, and breath-taking beaches within walking distance or a very short drive away.

The villa itself has been renovated to the highest standard by the illustrious Tropezian architect François Vieillecroze and is filled with wonderful works of art and beautiful furniture, not to mention quirky design features such as the winding staircase and the wall of water which forms a backdrop to the dining room. The 4 en-suite bedrooms sleep up to 8 adults in supreme comfort; two have independent access from the garden and are perfect for those who relish their own space, while the master bedroom in the main building has its own hammam and dressing room, and the final bedroom sits in the top of the turret offering views of St Tropez.

However the heart of the villa is its serene walled garden with a cleverly designed layout incorporating plenty of unique spaces to escape to. Relax on one of the shaded terraces where the only sound to be heard is the trickle of water from the fountain into the villa's original well, or enjoy a drink from the pool house bar with its own fridge, ice machine and coffee machine. The inviting mirror edge pool is made of natural stone and is the perfect place to cool off amid exotic plants and olive trees.

Fully air-conditioned and filled with wonderful touches such as a wine cellar, office area and sound system throughout (inside and outside), this is a simply one of the most luxurious and well-located properties available to rent in St Tropez. Combined with the attentive service and delicious meals provided by your Purple Summer staff, Villa La Tourelle is an exceptional retreat in one of the most sought-after locations in the Côte d'Azur.
