This French villa, just steps from the beaches in St. Raphael, has all the trappings of a cozy and welcoming retreat. Though it has clearly been decorated with love and style, the playful tone and colorful choices make it inviting without ever seeming overly designed or sterile. Take a look around.
When a home is in such a beautiful location, its outdoor space should be luxurious and welcoming as its indoor rooms.
With a simple wood deck, large pool, and private veranda, there is plenty of space to relax and enjoy the perfect weather.
Simple outdoor furniture can stand up to the elements while still providing a comfortable area to take a meal al fresco.
Inside, we still find elements of the natural surroundings with tons of windows that slide open to the deck.
While white is certainly a theme, there is not so much as to make the space feel overly sterile.
Instead, simple elements like polished white floors are offset by really creative pieces like a funky coffee table and awesomely modern dining chairs.
Little pops of color from shelving to artwork bring a special life to the house.
Cool modular seating and a classic egg chair make it obvious that life here is not taken too seriously.
The bedrooms are not large, but color and simplicity make them very welcoming.
And each as its own immediate access to the pool.
Red accents always seem to channel a certain kind of passion for life.
There’s no telling if this stylish room is intended for a child or just an adult who never really felt like growing up.
The huge kitchen is sunny and uncluttered, perfect for preparing a meal or just pouring champagne.
While a bath on the other side of a half wall from the bed doesn’t offer a lot of privacy, it is quite convenient for rinsing off after a dip.
Shady outdoor areas mean more time outside and less time baking in the sun.
And a classy hot tub is a perfect retreat day or night.
The house even has a private screening room, complete with floor seating that looks like it came straight from Studio 54.
