Tahiti Beach, St Tropez: A Wonderfully Luxurious Area for Villa Rentals

The ultra-famous Plage de Tahiti is one of the best spots on the Riviera to take a luxurious break. It’s an iconic sight, distinguished by bright orange parasols, at the northern end of Pampelonne. Tahiti Beach exudes a nostalgic glamour that appeals to a more mature demographic – people who remember its undisputed heydey as the European summer destination of choice for sirens of the silver screen and Hollywood heavyweights. It became an iconic hotspot when Brigitte Bardot starred in ‘And God Created Woman’ in the mid-1950s and has attracted a devoted clientele of showbiz favourites ever since.

Tahiti Beach takes pride of place on the shoreline of beautiful Ramatuelle and attracts a discerning selection of holidaymakers who appreciate its mellow vibe. This extraordinary corner of Pampelonne Beach has an abundance of natural beauty and wonderful establishments from which to enjoy your surroundings. Fine white sand and scrub-covered dunes form the backdrop to clear blue waters and one of the Mediterranean’s most glamorous party scenes.

Tahiti beach, St Tropez

Tahiti’s water sports facilities and its renowned beach club restaurants will appeal to children and adults alike. Similarly, St Tropez’s stunning marina, its megayachts and cosmopolitan cafe culture are just under two miles away. Tahiti really is close to everything you could need but tranquil enough to enjoy the lush natural surroundings from the privacy of your own secure luxury villa rental. We’ll take a look at the Tahiti area and its domains in more detail in the following paragraphs.

Cap Tahiti Domain

The secured domain of Cap Tahiti overlooks Pampelonne Beach and has direct access to Tahiti Beach on foot. This beautiful section of Ramatuelle is surrounded by verdant gardens and protected by a guard 24 hours a day. There are approximately 30 houses in the residence, with a guardian’s cottage at the entrance for security. Cap Tahiti has two key selling points in addition to its exclusivity and security. Firstly, at the peak of its vantage point over the glittering St Tropez coastline, Cap Tahiti boasts stunning views. Secondly, it’s idyllic location guarantees fast access to the town centre and its surrounding attractions.

Villa Rokko

Villa Rokko

To fully appreciate these panoramic views, we recommend Villa Rokko, which boasts breathtaking sea views beyond subtropical gardens and contemporary design that will impress even the most discerning of guests. It has a medium/high rental price from €25,000/week. The 6-bedroom luxury villa is a modern masterpiece and features an American kitchen, outdoor dining area and large swimming pool.

Villa Tahiti Charm

Nearby (but not inside) Cap Tahiti, the aptly-named Villa Tahiti Charm is part of a private domain of two villas. The 4-bedroom luxury rental property is minutes away from Tahiti beach and just around the corner from the wonderful Pomme de Pin restaurant. It’s an oasis of calm with an outside dining area and swimming pool set within a generously sized garden and is priced from €15,000 per week.

Tahiti Road

This superb 800 m² modern property is located on a large 11,000 m² garden and has 8 bedrooms. Villa Pareo is an ultra-luxurious villa with a swimming pool; in fact, it has two pools, one for the main house and another for the guesthouse, along with two al fresco dining areas.

La Capilla

The gated community of La Capilla is another sought-after domain in the vicinity of Tahiti Beach, which ensures that guests have complete privacy and security. It is smaller and less well known than Cap Tahiti but equally prestigious and beautiful and has some medium/high budget properties. Just like Cap Tahiti, it is very close to St Tropez centre and the traffic-free roads make travelling to the beaches a breeze.

Villa La Capilla

The eponymous Villa La Capilla is a wonderful Ramatuelle property available for fortnightly (approx €60,000) and monthly rental in the heart of the domain. The elegant 5-bedroom villa was recently renovated and restored to its original beauty and is situated in a tropical garden which offers a glimpse of the sea.

Cap Bastide, St Tropez

Villa Cap Bastide

Cap Bastide is another premium property located in the Tahiti area, just outside La Capilla.

The large shallow pool is perfect for all ages and the five bedrooms leave plenty of room to accommodate a nanny or housekeeper alongside your family. It’s one of our economical options at around €15,000 a week.

Chateau Messardiere

The highlight of the Tahiti area is Saint‑Tropez’s largest hotel, Chateau Messardiere. Set in 25 acres of immaculately-kept grounds, this five-star hotel has 117 rooms and features a spa, two restaurants, bars and an art gallery. It is a fantastic location for weddings and celebrations because its magnificent grounds and interior are simply stunning.

Tahiti Beach Essential Information

Not only are our favourite villas all located within walking distance of the best beaches in St Tropez, but getting to the centre is a very short car drive on roads without traffic. Here are some of our favourite restaurants and hotels in the vicinity of Tahiti Beach.

Restaurants and Hotels

Tahiti Beach Club – This iconic private beach club is the area’s oldest (1946) and most popular. It’s a sophisticated but laid-back establishment with an excellent menu of gourmet cuisine and snacks to be enjoyed right at the edge of the water. Its small hotel is chic and less expensive than you would expect given the fabulous location. It was one of the most popular hangouts for celebrities in the fifties and sixties.

Chateau Messardiere – As mentioned earlier in the article, this luxury hotel is the gem of Tahiti with its immaculate grounds and top-class service. Set in large and beautifully-kept grounds, everything about this chateau is soothing and pristine from its restaurant terrace to its spas. The 400-strong wine list is bound to have something to suit your palate.

La Ferme de Augustin – This 4-star hotel is set amid lovely gardens and has some fantastically relaxing communal areas like the lounge with a fireplace, the heated outdoor pool and the terrace. The gardens and orchard provide the seasonal vegetables used in the hotel restaurant’s regional cuisine.

La Pomme de Pin – This lovely restaurant offers delicious Italian cuisine served on a shaded terrace close to Cap Tahiti. Famous for its pizza and fresh food prepared simply, this is a place you should definitely make a reservation for since it is very popular with locals and holidaymakers alike.

Tropezina Beach – Just along from Tahiti Beach, Tropezina offers a menu of fresh seafood and Provencal specialities served by friendly staff. Unlike many of the beach clubs, Tropezina is open for most of the year allowing customers to enjoy the Riviera’s mild winter climate.

 

Half Term in Saint Tropez’s Villa Modernity

villa_modernity_st_tropez

The weather may be turning slightly autumnal, but that doesn’t mean that you have to strike Saint Tropez off your ‘To Visit’ list.

In fact, if you like long walks in beautiful sunshine along empty beaches then a half term holiday in this magical corner of France is probably just up your street.

Schools break up in two weeks, and where better to get some well needed R&R than in some of the most luxurious villas Saint Tropez still available to rent in October.

Take Villa Modernity, for example. This stunning villa available to rent and buy really does live up to its name in every sense and would make the perfect home from home in which to enjoy the first throes of winter 2015.

With floor to ceiling windows in every room and views on to the perfectly manicured terraced garden, this six bedroom villa is the ideal rental property for a large group of friends or family who want to get away this month.

Villa Modernity has recently been renovated to combine ultra-contemporary interior design with family-friendly finishing making it one of our favourite Saint Tropez rentals, now also for sale.

The house itself centres on a huge and spacious sitting room with doors which open on to the terrace and a fireplace for when the evenings get a little cooler. It also boasts a stylish kitchen, dining area and six large bedrooms, all of which are ensuite apart from one.

Meanwhile, outside in the large and totally private garden which is screened by tall pine trees you will find a Jacuzzi, swimming pool and several shaded seating areas for when the sun gets too strong.  And it does, even at this late stage in the year.

But perhaps Villa Modernity’s greatest feature is its enviable location near Boulevard Patch, one of Saint Tropez’s most prestigious waterfront sectors just a short walk from the white sand of  Pampelonne beach.  This incredible property is just 900 metres from beach clubs such as Bora Bora and Moorea yet also just a short drive from the centre of Saint Tropez.

Superyachts Spotted in Saint Tropez This Summer

superyachts_st_tropez

The former fishing village of Saint Tropez is so popular with the rich and famous that heads barely turn when a celebrity is spotted wandering along its white sandy beaches.

This summer has seen the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Bono and Elton John and many more sauntering along the famous Saint Tropez beach at Pampelonne before stopping at the stars’ favourite lunch spot, Club 55, without so much as a second glance.

Well-known faces are two a penny in the south of France’s most glamorous resort, so to get really noticed these days stars have to arrive on a seriously mega yacht – which we’ve also seen in abundance this year.

The season kicked off this year with photos of a bare-chested Cristiano Ronaldo doing some kind of work-out on the foredeck of a ridiculously large superyacht in waters off Saint Tropez. Once he’d been put through his paces the Manchester midfielder was joined on board by Sir Philip Green and his family who are known to be fans of Saint Tropez – and superyachts.

Also making waves in Saint Tropez this summer was supermodel Elle Macpherson who was pictured jumping from the upper deck of the superyacht she and her family hired for one week this July. The yacht, named Mad Summer, is a 56 metre motor yacht which has previously won the Boat International World Superyacht Award in the Custom Motor Yacht 51 metres to 65 metres category.

The award-winning yacht comfortably sleeps up to 10 guests with a crew 14, and a week on board can cost up to 325,000 Euros.

Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi was also photographed on a yacht in Saint Tropez this summer but failed miserably to look anything as nimble as The Body, Elle Macpherson.

The 78-year-old man was snapped stumbling into a tender, where he gashed his head on the canopy. The unfortunate accident left him with an unsightly cut on his forehead which he soothed with ice as he made his way to his awaiting superyacht. The former Italian Prime Minister was on holiday in the south of France with his daughter Marina and her children.

The ultimate family home from home: Villa Castel

villa castel

With temperatures in Saint Tropez hovering around 35°C with no sign of a let up, it can be tricky to summon up the energy to do anything whilst on holiday, bar lie by the pool.

So when you arrive in Saint Tropez with a hoard of kids, you might wonder how on earth you will find the force to entertain them.

Here at St Tropez House, we have the solution: Villa Castel! This incredible seven bedroom house comes fully equipped with a whole host of activities which promises to keep the kids – and grown-ups – amused for weeks.
