A Hideaway on the Côte d’Azur – Villa Cavini

Côte d’Azur is one of those destinations that seems like it’s always up for discussion, and it’s not hard to figure out why. With its splendid beaches and happening party scene, this famed region gives lessons of style, opulence and glamour. Needless to say, its charm and gourmet food are legendary. As a result, bons vivants return here year after year.

This summer we had the pleasure of staying for 8 nights at Villa CAVINI located in La Croix-Valmer, just a stone’s throw away from the prominent Ramatuelle area. The whole French Riviera experience was beyond decadent and my jaw still drops just thinking about it. So let me introduce you to this French property!

First off, CAVINI is a brand-new villa and if you’re looking for privacy and calmness, you’ll find it here. However, if your idea of a stellar accommodation is a villa located right in the middle of all the glitz & glam, then this may not be the right place for you.

GOOD TO KNOW: The villa has a secluded address like out of a fairy tale, and for directions you are only given GPS coordinates. So this is a recipe for an unforgettable escapade!

Equipped with amenities such as a gorgeous heated outdoor pool, a large dining and lounge area, and a 1500 sqm garden with barbecue, this upscale villa has everything required for a peaceful stay. Actually, it’s a secret refuge to create special memories with your loved ones.

Exterior spaces are beautifully designed, and the pool deck has plenty of space to lounge at with an ice-cold glass of Domaine de la Croix Cuvée Irresistible in hand. Without a doubt, you’ll hear only the clink of the glasses as you toast, and the birds singing. And did I mention the humming cicadas?

Ready to accommodate and cater to the needs of up to 10 guests, the 250 sqm villa boasts 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen– just perfect for a larger group.

Finesse and chicness characterise every square meter of this beautiful French property, making it a unique place for a summer vacation. Upon entering the living room it’s inevitable not to notice the beautiful garden. Have a look!

Walking through each bedroom of the villa is like discovering a new sanctuary. Every room, through its design, evokes a different emotion through an abundant display of relaxing cream tones.

It goes without saying, that a good night’s sleep is guaranteed. Calm exudes from every bedroom – we simply adored everything about it.

To cut a long story short, you’ll love relaxing at the pool, hanging out in the large living room or taking in the zen atmosphere of the colourful garden.

To Dos While You’Re Here

When it’s time to venture out, Gigaro Beach is within easy striking distance just 800 meters from the villa. Moreover, you can easily reach by car many well-known beaches on Saint-Tropez Peninsula, the most famous being the beautiful Pampelonne.

While Bagatelle or Nikki Beach might be at the top of your list, Indie Beach must not be overlooked! However, if you’re looking for seclusion, then head to BOHO Beach in Cavalaire-sur-Mer. It’s a beach with a bohemian spirit, a little piece of paradise, located just 15 minutes by car from Villa Cavini.

Well, is this beach a secret? Absolutely not. But compared to the packed sands of the famous jet setter beaches, it will feel light years away. In addition, the restaurant boasts a mouth-watering menu, with yummy Crustacés & Coquillages – no wonder, it’s a place mainly visited by French vacationers. Plus, there’s no shortage of thrills when it comes to wining either. Be sure to order an icy Chartreuse, which will make your stay on this beach even more idyllic.

INSIDER TIP: For the finest sunset in the region, head over to Jardin Tropezina and watch the golden rays disappear in the sea while dancing on hip beats. Just check out the video below!
