Nestled in the lush hills overlooking St Tropez, the well preserved French chateau of Le Preverger is steeped in history and was once the home of iconic interior designer Laura Ashley. Privacy and peace are guaranteed with fragrant lavender fields, dappled forest walks and hilltop vistas to explore and enjoy. The historic provençal village of La Garde-Freinet is just 12-minute drive from the estate, with its cobblestone streets, intimate bistros, artisan markets and food festivals. For fine dining, designer boutiques and all-night entertainment, the Côte d'Azur is a 40-minute drive away.
Whether you're holidaying with family, friends or colleagues, the versatile accommodation – which includes the main house, pool house, coach house and two gypsy caravans – is ideal for both relaxation and socialising. The rooms are dotted across the 140-acre estate to ensure privacy for all guests, while the spacious communal areas and leisure facilities allow you to enjoy plenty of time together as a group. There are dining rooms and reception rooms in all the houses, while the well-stocked library is a tranquil spot to enjoy a good book with your morning coffee or an evening apéritif. Your concierge will arrange tours and itineraries and a professional chef is on hand to shop and cook for you and your guests.
Your holiday will begin as soon as you touch down on this estate's private helipad or pull up in your limousine. Step out onto the soft grass, then indulge in whatever your heart desires: take a slow stroll and unwind in the Provençal-style gardens, take in the panoramic views by the poolside, play an invigorating game of tennis or work out in the gym. Relax in one of the luxuriously appointed reception rooms with cool terracotta tiles, sumptuous soft furnishings and stately French furniture, or enjoy a drink on the vine-covered terrace while your personal chef creates memorable meals using locally-sourced produce.
