Set in a lovely pine grove on a hillside overlooking the Baie de Pampelonne, Villa Marie is an oasis of calm in the village of Ramatuelle, yet with the beaches and St. Tropez in close proximity.
This luxurious Provencal villa has 45 rooms and suites designed in subtle pastel shades to create a cosy and relaxing atmosphere. Most have a private terrace and the best have dreamy sea views.
Villa Marie's restaurant serves seasonal Mediterranean cuisine and seafood either on the terrace or in the Italianate-style Orangery. The bar is another elegant place to kick back after a hard day's people watching.
The large kidney-shaped swimming pool is built into the rock and surrounded by terraced patios and attractive gardens offering yet more peaceful spots to relax. Finally, the Pure Altitude Spa offers a range of treatments for any guests not yet horizontally laid back.
Why we love it
The atmosphere at Villa Marie is intentionally relaxed, more like staying a private villa than a hotel.
