Tennis fans do not necessarily equate the South of France to exciting tournaments, but there are in fact a number of extremely important competitions which take place within a short distance of our St Tropez House villas.

Take the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters, for example. This glamorous event on the edge of the Mediterranean in the Principality of Monaco always attracts some of the biggest names in tennis and is a fabulous day out from St Tropez.

Last year, Swiss player Stanislas Wawrinka won the ATP tournament which is held at the Monte-Carlo Country Club every April, but for the eight years from 2004-20012 the top prize went to Rafael Nadal, from Spain.

The tournament will this year take place from 11th to 19th April, and is easily accessible from our villas in St Tropez, either by helicopter to the heliport in nearby Fontvieille or by car.

Another significant tournament is held every May at the Nice LTC approximately 90 minutes drive from our portfolio of luxury villas with tennis courts in St Tropez. This tournament is, like the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters, is an integral part of the ATP World Tour and attracts some of the most promising young players from all corners of the globe.

This year, the Open de Nice Cote d’Azur will take place from 17th to 23rd May, when the French Riviera will be particularly busy with both the Cannes Film Festival and Monaco Grand Prix being held simultaneously.

Perhaps our favourite tennis event which will no doubt appeal to those of your renting one of our St Tropez House villas this summer is the Classic Tennis Tour, which will take place in the Port of St Tropez on the 12th and 13th July.

Countdown until Monte Carlo Rolex Masters

Tennis fans renting a St Tropez House villa are in for a real treat when the Monte Carlo Rolex Masters is held in Monaco this spring.

The tiny principality nestled on the Cote d’Azur between Italy and France may seem like a long way to go for a tennis match, but the 90-minute journey by car really isn’t that far if you are passionate about the sport.

And for those who have a tight schedule but don’t want to miss out on a match between heavy weights such as Rafael Nadal or Andy Murray, there is also a very efficient helicopter service to consider. Those staying in a St Tropez villa with a helipad can benefit from an excellent 20 minute service from St Tropez to Monaco meaning that you can be in the stands at the exclusive Monte Carlo Country Club less than half an hour after breakfasting on the terrace of your St Tropez House villa.

The Monte Carlo Rolex Masters is one of the biggest tennis tournaments in Europe and is held every April at the highly esteemed country club. Sponsored by the luxury brand Rolex, it is part of the ATP tour’s clay court season and will this year take place between April 14th and 21st.

The tournament, which is held a short hop from the heliport for our clients staying in a St Tropez villa with a helipad, attracts many of the world’s premier players such as Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Nadal, who won it last year for the record-breaking eighth time.

If you are staying in one of our exclusive St Tropez House villas and would like to buy tickets for the Monte Carlo Rolex Masters, go to www.monte-carlorolexmasters.com.
