Travellers who expect something a little special may have found their perfect fit. Villa Philomène is a luxury villa in Saint Tropez with a magical setting in its own private estate. Surrounded by fountains and perfectly manicured lawns and gardens, step inside the impressive building and you enter your own private piece of paradise.
At the heart of this property is an internal ‘courtyard’ with the large heated pool, lit with LED lights to give it a welcoming glow. Surrounded by cloisters and beds on which to lounge post swim, it has the look of a luxury Moroccan hammam. There are dining spaces, seating areas and large beds all at the pool’s edge, but under cover so you can sit in the shade and still enjoy the feeling of being outdoors. Up above is a maze of terraces, where you can walk and enjoy the wonderful views of the Bay of Saint Tropez.
Indoors there are also plenty of spaces in which to gather with friends and relax alone. The villa’s staff are always on hand to top up drinks, arrange activities – anything from wine-tastings to wellbeing treatments – and ensure you never need to lift a finger while you’re here. And the little details are looked after here, too, from fresh flowers to luxury bath products to fully stocked snacks and drinks fridges. Everything is taken care of for you.
Seven beautiful air-conditioned en-suite bedrooms give everyone a cool, calm bolthole to escape to and there’s a further bedroom in a separate apartment with its own kitchenette, which can accommodate another two guests or may be a useful room for a nanny.
From the moment you wake up and enjoy that sea view over coffee to your last night cap out in the garden under the stars, life at Villa Philomène is a little bit magic.
