This spacious excellent-quality 'cottage style' apartment is in a private mixed residential domaine in Le Plan de la Tour, made up of villas and low rise 'cottage style' apartments, sharing the facilities of a large swimming pool, children’s paddling pool, boules pitch and a tennis court. The effect of the 'cottage style' is due to the incline of the land whereby the main access is to the rear by a short stairway (and so the feeling is very much of entering a small cottage), yet from the spacious furnished terrace to the front there are superb views across the village roofs of Le Plan de la Tour and the valley to the Maures hills in the distance beyond.
The historic centre of Le Plan de la Tour is a short stroll away from the apartment where there are boulangeries, bar/cafes, other everyday local shops, public tennis courts and multiple restaurants or it is only 10-15 minutes drive to the famous French holiday resort of Sainte Maxime with a vast choice of restaurants and several supermarkets and beautiful sandy beaches. A little further along the coast is the equally famous St Tropez which can be reached in 35 minutes or so by car or by taking the ferry shuttle (Les Bateaux Verts) over from Ste Maxime - it is well worth the experience, especially in peak holiday season on market days !
There is lots to do with a Tourist Information Office in the village of Le Plan de la Tour to guide you. The beauty of the South of France is very seductive, with its picturesque ancient villages, beautiful beaches, heady aromas of the trees and plants and warmth of the local people, it is a wonderful place to holiday and relax. With the almost guaranteed blue skies and hot days, the wonderful provencal food and the ever flowing local wines, it is hard to leave and not want to come back time after time !
