'In the evening while the sun goes down, sitting down by the pool under the tree, with a nice glass of wine overlooking the lovely vinyards, that to us, is the ultimate french feeling. It doesn't get any better than that. As wonderful as it is to stay 'at home', within a 15 min. drive you can be at the beach in St. Maxime (Beach club St. Barth).” Mitrovics, Holland, 2007

A short picturesque walk away via local vineyards is the beautiful village of Plan De La Tour, full of French charm, restaurants, bakeries, cafes, bars, shops with local produce, two wine caves, and Thursdays weekly market. To get a real feel for the ambiance and tranquility of this well know little village see both clips on You Tube, just enter key word search Plan De La Tour, they’re the clips headed 'A Touch of Paradise'. Part One actually features the vineyard where Les Oliviers is located: to the right of the author’s villa.
Many beaches are accessible from Plan De La Tour, there’s St. Maxime, Port Grimaud and at St. Tropez the famous Pampelonne beaches accessed via country roads away from the sometimes busy main coastal highway.
The area itself is full of local attraction and adventure; at St. Maxime take 'Les Bateaux Verts' as an alternative and novel way to hop across the Gulf by water to shop and dine at St. Tropez.
