Location

In a dominating position, Grimaud is an authentic medieval village, with a long rich history. History lovers would be delighted to walk through the maze of narrow stone streets. Ideally situated, the seaside, and in particular the gulf of Saint Tropez as well as the Lacustrian town of Port Grimaud are just six kilometres away via the most direct route. Inland, the region is dotted with typical Provence hilltop villages just beckoning hikers to discover some breath-taking views.
It can be accessed by TGV (bus shuttle from Saint-Raphaël station), Toulon airport is fifty mins away and by road (A57 motorway is within thirty minutes).

Description

The house built at the end of 17th century, has recently been entirely redesigned after joining two houses together. The narrow old street, its high walls protecting the façade from the summer heat, provides access to the north end of the property. The east-facing façade features six straight bay windows. To the south, an entrance leading to a small square area opens into a vaulted room above which is a large south-facing terrace.

The house

The two houses have been joined together by a large vaulted opening on the ground floor; the upper floors have preserved their individual character. Therefore, two staircases lead up to the bedrooms of the former houses on two and three levels respectively as well as down to their individual cellars.


Ground floor
From the street, it is accessed directly from the kitchen. The Salerne floor tiles mark the authentic Provencal-style character of the room. The renovation works have been carried out using old materials (terracotta floor tiles in all the bedrooms, white-washed walls, wooden stair nosing, wood windows and doors, ornamental ironwork, solid oak beams, etc…) Large passageways between the rooms makes it easy to move around the house and provide plenty of light. The level adjustments that were required when the two houses were joined together give the property a picturesque and unique feature. A vast dining room communicates with the lounge and kitchen. The lounge is south-facing and is illuminated by large bay windows opening out onto the terrace thanks to set of wide steps. From the lounge, a harmoniously curved staircase leads down to a large vaulted room (2.75 m high ceiling) that stays cool, featuring two straight south-facing bay windows.

First floor
Three bedrooms each with their own shower room or bathroom and toilet complete this floor. Two of them are south-facing. The decoration is meticulous, each room is unique.
Second floor
On this floor, two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and toilets. Two are south-facing. A mezzanine in one leads out onto a tropezienne terrace from where one can contemplate the Maures massif and the gulf of Saint Tropez.
Third floor
Just one bedroom on this floor. It is very luminous with its three bay windows. The bathroom and toilet belonging to this room are on a mezzanine floor between the first and second floors.
Cellar
Two beautiful cellars, dug in the rock are situated below the two houses. The visitor can discover some of the house’s history here. A laundry and ironing room has been installed in one the cellars.

Terrace
A secluded 26 m2 terrace, is ideal for sunbathing. The smaller tropezienne terrace (approx. 9 m2) is situated on a higher level and could be made accessible directly from two rooms on this level.

Our opinion

Past the entrance door, an enchanting peaceful world reveals itself, in a house that has seen some famous visitors. It has been meticulously redecorated throughout in keeping with the original spirit of the place: each room summoning an exotic-tinted reverie, while outside the melodious rumours coming from the old village of Grimaud can be overheard.
