At the weekend, The Telegraph published an article about this stunning, unique and historic estate in the hills close to Saint Tropez. The property is available as one huge estate or as two individual domains.

Not far from the razzmatazz of the Cannes Film Festival, which took place last month, is a corner of Provence that is as tranquil as it is undiscovered.

Set among the pine-dotted hills behind Saint-Tropez is a large country estate that has been in the same family for over a hundred years. It is now for sale in its entirety for €7.5 million (£6.6 million) with Home Hunts, or as two separate manors, Domaine du Paradou and Domaine de la Sauvagère.

The estate effortlessly recalls a bygone age when the Riviera was becoming the chic holiday destination for the cognoscenti: Coco Chanel had a home here, as did Pablo Picasso and Somerset Maugham. Sir Winston and Clementine Churchill visited regularly; the former prime minister loved to paint the colours of the Mediterranean scenery.

Clementine Churchill was a regular guest at Domaine du Paradou as she “was a close friend of my grandmother’s,” says Christopher Besse, who co-owns the estate with his mother and two siblings. “It was a time when the British were getting interested in this part of the world. My family lived here during the whole evolution of the Côte d’Azur.”
