Peace, birdsong and breathtaking views, but just minutes from the buzz of Saint-Tropez

Cante Terra

High above the bay of Saint-Tropez, amidst silence and bird-song, is a home like no other luxury villa on the Côte d'Azur, surrounded by gardens and stone sculptures, hills and ancient rock formations and filled with light, Cante Terra is a delightful Provençal bastide; a haven of peace above the bustle of the Riviera..

Cante Terra is a large luxury villa accommodating 10 adults and three children, but with additional space for staff or teenagers. With expansive terraces and gardens, the villa is perfectly positioned in the heart of Provence's untamed Var region in the hillas above the most western edge of the Còte d'Azur. It's close to charming, unspoiled hilltop villages with their markets, cafés and local life, yet within easy striking distance of the legendary fishing village of Saint-Tropez and all that the glamorous Riviera has to offer there, from shopping to the beaches and, of course, the nightlife.

For those wishing to explore Provence, the great cultural centres of Avignon, Aix and Arles are an easy day trip from the villa.

A Luxury villa with a creative spirit

The property itself is the creation - and labour of love - of the grand-daughter of a great composer - and her inimitable charm, style and artistic flair for paintings, books, and objets d’art are evident throughout. There is a particularly impressive collection of sculptures in the house and garden, and an ample collection of books, some about or by friends of the owner and her family.  The estate backs onto a vast protected region of mountains and forests, ideal for marvellous hikes, walks and trekking.  The gardens are beautifully landscaped with romantic views either towards the sea or the hills, and the various terraces and shady areas around the house and pool offer delightful outside dining options.   

The house is low-key, elegant and extremely comfortable; clearly a well-loved family home. The rooms are charming, colourful and each one has a different style and personality. The owner has installed brand-new bathrooms and the beds are very comfortable with top-grade linen. Nights at the house are particularly beautiful, with romantic lighting outside and candles and soft lighting inside. Behind the house and scattered throughout the gardens is a collection of intimate and reflective sculptures as evidence of the villa's essential creative spirit.
