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’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

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

Villa Mangueira has seven bedrooms and is perfect for those who love an outdoors holiday since it has 26 000 m² of park. The grounds contain a swimming pool with a pool house, a tennis court with and a helipad station which gives maximum transportation convenience. Villa Mangueira is beautifully furnished and has a sea view from its exquisite master bedroom.

Villa Mangueira

Villa Mangueira is not overlooked by any other property but it is close to its neighbour on Tahiti Road, Villa Pareo. 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. There is parking for several cars, an automatic gate and an alarm system, and soon a house for the staff will be located near the entrance gate. These two gated properties are wonderful examples of Cap Tahiti’s exclusive buildings that offer high-level security and comfort.

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. It is within walking distance of Tahiti Beach and Place des Lices with its famous market is just 5 minutes drive.

Cap Bastide, St Tropez

Villa Cap Bastide

Cap Bastide is another premium property located in the Tahiti area, just outside La Capilla. It’s just three minutes walk away from family-friendly Tahiti beach making the large landscaped garden seem like a verdant extension of the beach. 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. The gardens include a botanical footpath and it takes preservation seriously as the French Bird Protection League’s (LPO) only partner-hotel.

Villa Bellazard

St Tropez House is delighted to present the ultra-luxurious Villa Bellazard, just 5 minutes away from Chateau Messardiere.

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.

 

Two New Beach Clubs for Pampelonne

DSC_0367

Saint Tropez is famous for its highly exclusive and luxurious beach clubs, some of which have been around longer than many of its residents – and certainly us.

For example, the legendary Tahiti Beach Club opened on Pampelonne Beach in 1946, with celebrities favourite Club 55 being established a short distance away on the same stretch of sand some nine years later – in 1955.

And as much as we love the old institutions of Saint Tropez, it is always very exciting when new places open up.
