Nestled in the hills of Grimaud, with glorious views of the gulf of Saint-Tropez, Le Nid D’Aigle is a stylish holiday home with an authentic Mediterranean ambience and in the perfect location for exploring this enchanting part of the French Riviera.
The interiors are cool and contemporary yet there are warm touches throughout the impressive space. The open-plan living room features Pierre de Bourgogne floors and a stunning free-standing Travertine fireplace centred around modern yet relaxing furniture. The space is filled with light from the tall sliding windows opening up to beautiful terraces which wrap around the villa. Each of the four ensuite bedrooms has air-conditioning, some with their own patio overlooking the surrounding verdant landscapes.
Dine al-fresco under the bamboo-shade of the pretty loggia as you gaze out over woodland as far as the sea or simply relax by the dazzling swimming pool on warm summer afternoons. As the evening approaches, find a peaceful spot where you can chat with family and friends with a glass of local wine and listen to the sound of the crickets in the exotic landscaped gardens.
Indeed, this feels like a tranquil oasis yet you are only minutes from some of the most captivating places in the Côte d'Azur. The medieval hilltop village of Grimaud is a five-minute drive away where you can explore the flower-filled cobbled lanes, discovering excellent restaurants or simply admiring the amazing vistas towards the sea.
You can also be by the coast within a short drive with the beaches of Beauvallon so near or head further south to the glamourous beach clubs of Pampelonne beach, just twenty minutes by car. There is of course a wealth of activities from hiking to cycling, horse-riding to go-karts and some of the French Riviera’s finest golf courses nearby.
It goes without saying that there is a wide choice of watersports across the gulf as well as some fantastic diving schools and boat trips in the region. Fashionable Saint-Tropez is 12km away whilst more relaxed yet just as idyllic Provençal villages to visit include Ramatuelle, Gassin, and Bormes-les-Mimosas, set in the hills with mesmerising views.
That said, despite so many wonders of the Côte d'Azur, you may simply prefer to escape the bustle and just relax in the glorious surroundings of Le Nid D’Aigle with marvellous views towards the azure-blue seas.
Le Nid D’Aigle is set in the hills just a five-minute drive from the charming village of Grimaud, with far-reaching sea-views towards the gulf of St-Tropez.
The beaches of Beauvallon or Port Grimaud are only five to ten minutes by car or if you are searching for a little more glitz and glamour, head to the famous beach clubs along Pampelonne beach, a twenty-minute drive away, including the exclusive Club 55, popular with celebrities as well as visitors.
Nearby Grimaud (3km) is a medieval hilltop village with great views of the Saint-Tropez coastline. As well as flower-filled cobbled streets and ancient churches, the village offers traditional French boutiques, bars and a good range of restaurants from simple to high-end as well as a weekly antique market every Sunday.
Heading down towards the coast, Port Grimaud (6km), built in the latter half of the twentieth century, is mainly a traffic free zone with a great marina that can only be accessed by foot or boat. You can take a guided boat tour around the marina, spotting pretty coloured houses and Venetian style bridges, before enjoying a drink or meal in one of the marina’s cafes or restaurants.
The picturesque Provençal village of Cogolin (6km) is great for food shopping whether in the supermarket or the delightful market on a Wednesday and Saturday morning. Other great food shops to discover include La Halle de Grimaud (4km), a local organic grocery store and Tarte Tropezienne, a well-known bakery in the area (6km).
Not forgetting the fashionable and famous village of Saint-Tropez (12km), well-known for its winding medieval streets, traditional pastel-painted fishermen’s cottages, boutiques and restaurants and the port with fishing boats moored alongside luxurious yachts. In the summer months beat the traffic and drive down to Port Grimaud where you can take the ferry across to Saint-Tropez.
This is a fantastic region for outdoor activities from a choice of wonderful golf courses across the French Riviera, such as Beauvallon Golf Course (7.5km) to horseback riding in nearby Grimaud.
Families can look out for paintballing, go-karting, tennis clubs and water parks in the surrounding region, not to mention some amazing boat trips from Saint-Tropez from sightseeing along the coast to whale watching in the Mediterranean.
It goes without saying that you’ll find a great choice of watersports. From as far north as Sainte-Maxime to Pampelonne beach in the south, you’ll find jet-skiing, wakeboarding, parasailing, paddle-boarding and snorkelling. The gulf is also well known for its wreck dives and you can also learn to sail nearby.
There is also some great hiking across the region, along coastal paths or in the beautiful hinterlands. Cycling is also extremely popular with many marked trails to follow through the ever changing landscapes of this fascinating area.
As well as the magnificent coastline of sandy beaches and beautiful waters for swimming in, there are also some amazing unspoilt areas such as the six kilometres of La Croix Valmer coastline where you will find some stunning walks surrounded by diverse flora and fauna.
Furthermore, inland there are delightful Provençal villages to discover such as Ramatuelle, Gassin, and Bormes-les-Mimosas, set in the hills often with mesmerising views of both the hinterland and coast, making this arguably one of the most beautiful areas in France.
