A fully renovated, 17th century, village house
just 10 minutes from the beach in the historic centre of Grimaud
Grimaud, VAR provence-cote-dazur 83310 FR

Location

Perched on its promontory and listed as a French Historic Monument, the old town of Grimaud and its medieval castle dominate the Bay of Saint-Tropez and the surrounding area. Visitors are invited to stroll and amble through a maze of narrow streets and old stone, giving free rein to their imaginations and their emotions. Ideally located between the sea and the hinterland, in a region steeped in sunlight, the possibilities for leisure activities are endless (hiking, water sports, etc.).
It can be reached via TGV train (shuttle bus from Saint-Raphaël train station), Toulon airport, 55 minutes away, or via the A57 motorway, with slip roads just 30 minutes away.

Description

This house is in an area with French MH classification and the surroundings are therefore protected. The construction, probably dating back to the 17th century, stands at the intersection of two quiet, pedestrian streets, each having an entrance on two different levels. This south-facing house, spanning approx. 90 m² over three levels, is extremely luminous not only inside but also on its terrace. A sculpted stone lintel enhances the building’s wrought door.

The house


Lower Level 1
This level can be reached directly from the street or via the interior stairway. Thick, uneven walls, wide stone vaults as well as solid oak beams enhance this open-plan kitchen and dining room area. Following on from the kitchen, a cellar, also completely vaulted, constitutes a cool storage area. A shower room with a toilet.
Ground floor
The entrance door opens directly into a lounge. Three straight, south-facing windows let in copious amounts of light. Old beams covered with plaster, uneven walls and numerous nooks and crannies mark the overall character of these premises, also featuring an impressive, Provencal-style fireplace. The floor is covered with small, painted, terracotta bricks.
First floor
A corridor provides access to two bedrooms and a shower room. Very old arched beams give this level its own unusual character. Floors are covered either with polished concrete or wooden flooring. The ceilings, sloping in keeping with the roof, make the rooms airy. A very wide picture window opens on to a terrace where two people can comfortably take their breakfast, whilst taking advantage of the view over a little square and the surrounding narrow streets.

Our opinion

Ambling around the winding streets of the medieval village is a prelude to discovering this house. And the village’s very distinctive atmosphere naturally continues over its threshold. This house, marked by soberness, is a pleasant place to live, a feeling that is enhanced by the solidity of its walls. The Provencal light, so intense and so special, seeps into the smallest of nooks and crannies. A wonderful place for residents to return to somewhat lost values in a village that is, nevertheless, extremely lively. This fully renovated house is but an invitation for new owners to move straight in.
