This charming hilltop villa has been beautifully restored and personally furnished by London-based interior designer, Pauline Spearpoint. La Petite Cachette is nestled in 2.5 acres of private woodland, bordering vineyards and oak forests with 180-degree panoramic views of the picturesque village of Plan de La Tour. The property features a main house, a pigoniere guest cottage and a new independent guest cottage. The villa is totally private and not overlooked by any other property. La Petite Cachette is an ideal retreat to relax and unwind yet is only 30 mins from St Tropez.
The main house has French doors opening onto the front and rear terraces and an open plan kitchen/sitting/dining room area with a large open fire. The pigoniere guest cottage overlooks the pool and is totally self-contained with a tiled shower, toilet and wash basin, custom-made solid oak kitchen, and a sitting room with an open fireplace and amazing views over the pool area and beyond to the village of Plan de La Tour. The new independent guest cottage has a kitchen, with a lovely pergola terrace seating 8 people.
There are 3 lovely bedrooms in the main house, 2 queens and one twin (can be made into a king) with garden views. There is a beautiful new bathroom with a cast iron English roll top tub and a large walk-in Moroccan-style shower room. Bedroom 4 (which is a twin but beds can be pushed together to make a king), is in the pigoniere guest cottage and enjoys extraordinary 360 degree views from the upstairs bedroom. Bedroom 5 has Twin beds which can be pushed together to form a King. It includes a bathroom and is located in the new independent guest cottage. Each bathroom has a toilet and basin and in addition there is a guest cloak room.
There is wifi, 42 LCD TV, a sound system which includes iPod docking, and a DVD player.
La Petite Cachette is surrounded by trees ensuring privacy and a great feeling of escaping from the rest of the world. A place to totally relax and unwind. There is a lovely south east flower-covered terrace at the rear where guests tend to have breakfast and a cool tile-covered terrace on the north/west side perfect for long lazy dinners. There is a covered dining area by the pool with an outdoor bar, perfect for lunch or dinner. There are an abundance of places to sit and enjoy the peaceful countryside.
The new 12×6 m heated pool is hidden above the house. The pool is surrounded by a large reclaimed terracotta terrace and a grass area for relaxing. Next to the pool, there is a wisteria covered eating area with a large Moroccan tiled table and comfortable wicker chairs for 10 people. There is a bar area for outdoor eating next to the pergola and table tennis and boules to the rear of the pool house.
Both kitchens are fully equipped enabling guests to cook with pleasure. There is also a gas BBQ. A chef can be arranged if required. There is a great Provenal restaurant called La Quinta 10 minutes walk from La Petite Cachette. It has a lovely terrace overlooking the vineyards and the village beyond and has a wonderful menu using the finest locally grown ingredients.

There is a selection of good restaurants, a pizzeria, créperie and café and a variety of boulangeries,
butchers and mini markets. Once a week there is a great outdoor food/all sorts market. We normally
stock up on essentials at the mega market on the way in to Plan de la Tour and then use the shops and
market in Plan de la Tour for our daily needs. There are some great vineyards nearby selling local
rose, red and white wines. In fact, our favourite wine comes from the grapes growing at the foot of our
hill, ‘Les Marquets’.
We have a great Provencal restaurant called ‘La Quinta’, 10 minutes’ walk from our house. It has a
lovely terrace overlooking the vineyards and the village beyond and has a wonderful menu using the
finest locally grown ingredients. We can also suggest a number of near by restaurants.
The nearest beach is in the charming resort of St Maxime which is just 15 minutes drive from La
Petite Cachette. La Nartelle beach is the favourite with young families, as the beach is very flat and
has shallow water. Seehttp://www.sainte-maxime.com
St Tropez with its shops and buzzing atmosphere is just a 30-minute drive over the hill. A special
place to visit when you tire of relaxing at La Petite Cachette, St Tropez has excellent restaurants and
we have our favourites which we can recommend.
