Josh Buckley at H. Barnes & Co shares some insider knowledge about a one-off luxury private villa in St Tropez, designed and created by Georgio Armani.
“St Tropez is a place where people ‘meet’, and many friends rent or buy property here in order to be close to one another during the summer. It has always been popular with the Belgians, and Italians, French, Swedish, but also loved by the British, Americans, eastern Europeans, and wealthy Middle Eastern families.
Over the years, we have seen a shift in demand and popularity for properties closer to the centre of town. Previously, people were drawn to the aspect of large houses and plots which were typically located towards the beaches of St Tropez. As time has gone by with the increasing popularity of hotels, restaurants, bars and high end retailers, a new discerning exclusive buyer has emerged, who requires access to all of this on their doorstep. It’s fair to say that such accessibility and properties in poll position are incredibly rare.
A perfect example of this is Villa Armani Casa, which has just been made available to rent for the first time over the summer period, which is situated no more than 500 metres from every major landmark and desirable hotspot in St Tropez, including the celebrated Hotel Byblos and famous main square, Place des Lices.
Villa Armani Casa is the masterpiece of Giorgio Armani, who was commissioned to design and create this project from a bare land plot to a beautifully interior and landscaped designed luxury residence with a Tropezienne facade. It is the first Armani project in St Tropez and took about six years from purchase to completion. While being in ‘pole position’, it also offers calm and tranquillity with sea views, a south west facing aspect and private gardens with luxurious heated pool.”
