A honey-hued villa set just outside the village of Le Rouret, La Retraite is a traditional Provençal mas with stylish modern interiors. Surrounded by beautiful villages, from ancient Bot and its winding streets to Mougins with its dazzling hilltop view of the bay of Cannes, the villa is also an excellent base from which to explore neighbouring St-Tropez, Cannes and Monaco.
The villa's own 6,000 sq m of grounds include terraced gardens filled with lavender and other flowering Mediterranean shrubs, as well as a wilderness garden planted with cherry and olive trees.
The large pool and deck area has sweeping views down over the wooded valley. There's a poolside dining table and a pretty pergola - perfect both during the day and, later, for watching the sun set.
Please note to get into the villa or go down to the pool area you will need to negotiate a series of steps. As such this property is not recommended for those with limited mobility.

The village of Le Rouret lies in the Alpes-Maritimes, 350m above the Côte d'Azur. Though it has a population of little more than 4,000 inhabitants, this is nonetheless a thriving village, with a bakery, new daily farmers' market, delicatessen, supermarket, petrol station, and even a Michelin-starred restaurant.
