Ramatuelle, VAR provence-cote-dazur 83350 FR

Location

Near to Saint-Tropez, Ramatuelle is a village typical of Provence. Constructed on a hillside, an old rampart still houses its old timeless buildings, adorned with flowers and set in a maze of narrow, winding lanes. The village dominates the large Pampelonne beach, with its fine sand, still protected from any construction and with an exceptionally beautiful seabed. The village of Ramatuelle is particularly well-known for its festival which was created in 1985 in homage to Gérard-Philippe.
It can be reached via train (20 minutes from Les-Arcs TGV train station), by plane (20 minutes from Gulf of Saint-Tropez airport and an hour from that of Hyères-Toulon) or by road (45 minutes the A8 motorway).

Description

This very old, recently renovated property, in the midst of the historic district, is reached via a stairway designed by Eiffel (1868) which goes up to the large, luxurious home, spanning approx. 480 m². More discreet doors, reached via the old village lanes, also provide access to the small 84 m² house or to the 130 m² flat, all on a level in use as an office. Out of sight of passers-by, the garden (approx. 220 m²) links all the buildings, the roofs of which are enhanced with a single cornice.

The large, luxurious home

Although completely redesigned and renovated, this functional house still has its old character (indoor shutters on all the windows, old doors, exposed beams, terracotta floor tiles and parquet flooring), whilst featuring a touch of contemporary modernism.


Ground floor
The main entrance, with its old door, is set in the east facade. A deep vestibule, embellished with extensive panelling, provides access to a kitchen, the garden and a stairway leading to the upper floors. Adjoining, the kitchen, a lounge and a bedroom (with an adjoining shower room) create a feeling of spaciousness, enhanced no doubt by the high ceilings (a height of more than 4 m). An airy, wrought iron and wood, spiral stairway leads from the shower room to a small area in use as a library. The floor is covered with old terracotta tiles. Four, large, rectangular windows look out over the west-facing garden. A classical stairway, with terracotta tiled steps and wooden nosing, goes upstairs from the entrance hall.
First floor
A corridor provides access to three bedrooms, each with its own shower room and toilet. These particularly bright, west-facing bedrooms feature exposed ceiling beams. They each have a unique appearance courtesy of their different layouts. There are large storage areas. Chestnut wood parquet flooring covers the floors throughout.
Second floor
This level comprises a single large bedroom, with a 2-sloped ceiling, featuring whitened, wide planks of wood. This omnipresent material reinforces the timeless character of the premises in the bedroom, its bathroom with a shower and a toilet, as well as its dressing room. A small terrace provides a clear view of the sea and Pampelonne beach as well as the village, such that residents can but appreciate the fascinating layout of the roofs with their coloured hues.
Basement
The entrance to the basement is separate, reached via an adjacent street. It comprises three rooms, including its old press-house and its cellars. This level would be ideal as an exhibition room.

The flat

This flat is laid out on the ground floor. It can be reached via the street as well as via the garden. It is composed of three main rooms, including a room featuring columns, measuring approx. 90 m². It is looked down on by a mezzanine-walkway, running its full length and enhancing this spacious room with its high ceiling (a height of more than 4.5 m).

The small house

Spanning approx. 84 m², this small house comprises a shop on the road side. On the garden side, it is entered by passing under a shady arbour. A little room on the ground floor provides access via a straight stairway to an area used as a dressing room, where a ladder leads to a bed on a mezzanine. A passageway leads to a lounge, where a stairway goes up to a bedroom with a shower room and toilet. First-class parquet, beams and numerous nooks and crannies reinforce the character of this small house.

The garden

With a wide variety of plants (medlar and citrus trees, etc.), this garden is enhanced with a wide, round ornamental pool, fed by a deep tank, running the full length of the house and recuperating rain water. It used to supply the press-house in the basement. A vine, jasmine and rose-covered arbour, bordered by a low wall, can accommodate a large table and deck-chairs for relaxing. Another wooden terrace, laid out in a square at the end of the garden, looks down on to the village.

Our opinion

It is difficile for passers-by to imagine what is contained within these old walls, several hundreds of years old. Once across the threshold, visitors discover this peaceful place, soberly and tastefully decorated and exuding indescribable charm. The present is harmoniously blended with the past. The heavily shaded garden is the property’s most emblematic area, the one that bestows it with its very special character: it is central to the property, just as the house itself is central to the village, and can be viewed from all around.
