Located in Les Mayons, a charming French village surrounded by rolling hills and tranquil streams, Le Grand Gîte also benefits from being just a short drive from the famous fishing town of St. Tropez. In the calm of the countryside but with beaches and other towns within striking distance, the property offers guests plenty to enjoy for a short or longer stay. In comparison to the glitz and glamour of much of the Riviera, here the emphasis is on simplicity and tranquillity, in a rustic yet comfortable setting.
This large cottage boasts two spacious double bedrooms as well as a fully equipped kitchen and furnished outdoor seating/dining area. With easy access to features such as a boules pitch, table-tennis table and a shared swimming pool surrounded by the breathtaking landscape, the property is an ideal place for a tranquil stay amidst the natural beauty of the south of France.
The outdoor area of this cottage, equipped with a dining table and chairs, is a charming setting to enjoy al fresco meals while taking in the beautiful setting of the property. On entering through the impressive vines which surround the doorway, the natural feel of the décor creates a continuity with its exteriors.
For preparing holiday meals, a small yet practical kitchen is well equipped with a large fridge-freezer and dishwasher as well as gas burners, an oven and a microwave. The kitchen also has a washing machine and has a door which leads directly outside. While the décor maintains the rustic feel, the appliances are modern and the room is well lit with contemporary fittings.
For cooler days and nights, there is a indoor dining area with a table and chairs to comfortably seat four people, situated in the main area of the cottage. Although there is no indoor lounge area, the dining area still serves as a pleasant space for entertaining.

The first double bedroom is a spacious room with a large double bed and the décor tastefully blends the original stonework wall with modern comfort and ambient lighting. The exposed roof beams throughout both the bedrooms add to the charm of the interior and give the rooms a warm and cosy atmosphere. The second bedroom, just off the dining area, also has a double bed and benefits from a simple en-suite shower room.
The en-suite shower room has a shower, basin and WC and the main bathroom is fitted with a bath, basin and WC.
The cottage benefits from being refreshingly cool throughout the hot summer season while also being a cosy choice for the cooler winter months. It also has easy access to the adjoining cottages ‘Le Petit Gite’ and ‘Gite de la Bergerie’, convenient for groups of friends but also allowing independence within each cottage for smaller groups, couples or families.
For lovers of nature or simply for those in search of a slice of tranquillity with a French country feel, this attractive two-bedroom cottage has a lovely mix of comfort and authentic rural charm. For those who wish to explore the region further or have easy access to and from the property, a car is recommended and parking on site is available.
