About the property

Secluded, peaceful, sleeps 8, large garden and pool, serviced, 2.5km from beach

The provencal house, down a track off the Escalet road, sits in 3 acres of garden and vines and overlooks vineyards. The property is 2.5km from L'Escalet beach, 5km from Pampelonne beach and 10km from St Tropez. Because of its location coping with the St Tropez traffic is optional - all amenities can be found locally. The house, attractively furnished (the owners use it three months of the year) sleeps 8 in two twin and two double bedrooms each with its own bathroom. It has a good sized living/dining room, a fully equipped kitchen and laundry, and verandas for socialising and dining on two sides, overlooking the pool, garden and vines. The pool is protected by a security fence. The property is known for being peaceful yet close to all the action of the area.

The caretaking couple live in a seperate cottage hidden from the garden by walls. He maintains the garden, pool and verandas & she cleans the house 2 hours 6 days a week and does laundry weekly. They can advise on local amenities

Golf:: Golf is available at Beauvallon and Sainte Maxime, about half an hour's drive in reasonable traffic conditions. The beautiful Gassin Golf Club is about 3 km away.

Peaceful and quiet, but still close to it all

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at La Cotriade in July. The home was all that we expected and more. We enjoyed walking through the vineyards, swimming in the pool, and enjoying the sunsets from the patio. Alan and Sue took good care of us, the home, and the gardens, and were quick with a suggestion of where to eat or what to do. We were close to the beaches, St. Tropez, and Ramatuelle. We'll be back soon.

We absolutely loved our stay at La Cotriade. The home and property are magnificent and the location is perfect. We were minutes from my nephew’s wedding in Gassin, as well as wonderful beaches at L’Escalet and Pampelonne. My wife loves to cook and was extremely impressed at how well the kitchen was equipped, which is not surprising given that the owner is a professional chef. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool, as well as the boules court. Best of all, Alan and Sue (caretakers) were absolutely delightful hosts, sharing invaluable local knowledge on beaches, hikes, restaurants, shopping and sights.

Exceeded all expectations

  • 5 of 5

We had a most wonderful week at La Cotriade. The setting for the house is perfect: absolute tranquillity yet within minutes of the lovely hilltop towns, the beaches and St Tropez, to say nothing of the best croissants in France! The house itself is traditionally provencal with four big bedrooms and four bathrooms, and perfect outside dining areas. The kitchen is particularly well equipped and so we were able to make the most of the perfectly fresh ingredients bought in the local markets. We spent many a happy evening sipping a glass of rose in the beautiful gardens, followed by a barbecue on the terrace. The swimming pool is particularly special - comfy loungers and securely fenced to protect little ones.

Philip the owner was extremely responsive to all enquiries, and the gardiens (Alan and Sue) went out of their way to make our stay extra special.

We will be back!

the must !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons loué la maison " la Cotriade " du 1er au 9 mai 2015.

Nous sommes allés de surprises en surprises - toutes plus agréables les unes que les autres -.

Accueil très chaleureux par un couple de gardiens anglais, bouteilles de vin de la Cotriade offertes, ménage entier de la maison fait tous les matins, entretien de la piscine et jardin fait tous les jours, linge de maison+serviettes de bains fournis ... et j'en oublie ... cette maison n'est que du bonheur.

Calme, verdure, fleurs, belle piscine, terrain de pétanque, vignes et arbres magnifiques font de cette maison un hâvre de paix, de bonheur et de bien-être.

Nous sommes des habitués de location, mais jamais nous n'avons trouvé autant de luxe ... dans autant de simplicité et de chaleur humaine grace à Suzanne et Allan (couple de gardiens).

Mais, nous n'oublions pas les propriétaires qui nous pensons font tout pour que leurs locataires passent des vacances très confortables, paisibles et sans souci.

La maison est idéalement située, à 10km de saint-tropez facile d'accés et à 3minutes en voiture du très joli village de Ramatuelle.

Nous avons tellement été satisfaits que nous faisons le projet d'y retourner l'année prochaine.

Merci à Suzanne et Allan, merci à Philip Howard ... surtout ne changez rien dans votre façon de considérer vos locataires ... TOUT EST PARFAIT.

Beautifull house; stunning garden and pool area

  • 5 of 5

We have had a perfect holiday with our children in this lovely French home. Beautifull gardens and swimmingpool area. Altough near the buz of St Tropez and Pampelonne beaches, maximal peace and privacy. Within 3 minutes drive of a lot of different kind of beaches. And no queing for St. Tropez!

A Dream House in the Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at La Cotriade last summer with my family, (including three young children) as well as a couple of friends. There is a magical quality to the house, set in the middle of a vineyard, with perfect outdoor gathering spots all around. The pool is lovely and very secure. The house itself is extremely comfortable and well supplied with all basic amenities. The caretakers were a pleasure, never invasive but always there to make sure all was as we needed. The location of the house is ideal, right in the middle of the countryside, but so close to the beaches and all the action of St. Tropez. We couldn't have been happier about our stay at La Cotriade. We didn't want to leave.

The location is ideal for the Saint Tropez peninsula, being close to the beaches, 2km from Ramatualle village, 5km from Gassin village, 10km from Saint Tropez itself and yet hidden in vineyards, not visible from any road. With a supermarket a short distance away and shops and a market in Ramatuelle it is never necessary to get into the heavy traffic on the main roads around Saint Tropez and Port Grimaud. Yet the property is close to Pampelonne and its beach clubs, the Golf de Gassin complex, Cap Camarat and the nature reserve along the coast including Cap Lardier and the unspoilt beach at Bastide Blanche.
