Overview & Features

On the prestigious estate of the Domaine de Terre Blanche, an oasis of calm set high in the hills of the Var, yet only 35 minutes from Cannes, sits this stunning contemporary Villa.  Faded crystal chandeliers glisten alongside antique mirrors, rustic woods and pale linens to provide a subtle backdrop to the stunning terraces and gardens, and breathtaking views to the pretty perched villages in the hills beyond.

 

The ultimate luxury retreat, the Villa provides copious amounts of space for large groups to gather,  yet so many activities and lounging areas that you can also be apart, all without even leaving the Villa. Perhaps you will start the day with a work out in the fully equipped gym, keeping in touch with the outside world with Sky News or on the internet enabled Technogym equipment, or perhaps some yoga on the lawn,  breathing in the freshest of air and enjoying the spectacular mountain views. Reward yourself with a delicious buffet breakfast on the covered terrace overlooking the pool and then perhaps a swim. After a few hours reading (or were you snoozing …) in the hammock, rejoin the group by the pool. Barbecue lunch might be followed by a few hours of sunbathing or you might accept the challenge of a game of table football. Beaten? Seek your revenge on the shaded table tennis terrace.

 

As the late afternoon sun starts to glisten through the pine trees, and the pool terrace is at its most beautiful, enjoy some delicious local rosé whilst soothing away those few remaining cares in the integrated hot tub, and start to anticipate the evening ahead. Can you fit in an early evening game of tennis or boule before dinner or maybe just a while relaxing in the steam room?

 

The evening truly starts with sunset drinks on the upper terrace before you hop into the golf buggy and head to the hotel restaurant for a delicious dinner – Michelin star by golf buggy? You must be on holiday!  Back at the Villa, the pleasure continues as, beside the flickering light of the fire, you rediscover favorite tracks on the Sooloos system and challenge friends to ‘Guess Which Year’. Stalworts later venture down to the bar and enjoy a game of pool whilst others retreat to their en suite bedrooms, with perhaps a final nightcap on their private terrace, and reflect on a perfect day. Tomorrow? Perhaps a game of golf, a trip to the spa, a movie …… or you may even venture out of the Domaine to enjoy the charming local village markets and restaurants, a local renowned vineyard or the bustle and beaches of the Cote d’Azur.
