Dream holidays in Saint-Tropez with Excellence Riviera - our review

Saint-Tropez has retained the charm of a fishing village that has seduced generations of artists, including Signac and Matisse, for its light and authentic setting. Since the 1960s, leading figures from the worlds of art, culture and business have chosen Saint-Tropez for their holidays. Beyoncé, Leonardo Di Caprio and billionaire Bernard Arnault are all regulars here.

Notre avis sur Excellence Riviera.

The best way to experience the authenticity of Saint-Tropez is to rent a villa for at least 15 days. That's the minimum length of time you need to really immerse yourself in Tropezian life, with its mix of Provençal customs and Côte d'Azur frenzy. Planning a holiday in Saint-Tropez invites you to dream of a dream holiday. The secret to a successful holiday lies above all in organising it properly, without having to worry about the details that could get in the way of your enjoyment. Discover a holiday shaped by Excellence Riviera. Two dream weeks on the Côte d'Azur, in residence at Villa Canoubwest.


To make the most of your holiday, you'll be met at the airport before boarding a private helicopter to take you to the Saint-Tropez peninsula without the traditional traffic jams, a privilege that comes with a transport service for your luggage if you're arriving loaded. After your flight along the sublime Côte d'Azur coastline, a chauffeur will be on hand to take you to your holiday destination when you land.

Villa Canoubwest is ideally situated between the beaches of Pampelonne in Ramatuelle and the heart of the village of Saint-Tropez, and is nestled in a secure estate to guarantee the peace of mind of the 16 travellers who rent it for over two weeks of pleasure. Once through the gates of your villa, the holiday really begins.

Your house staff, whose services are included in your rental, will welcome you to unveil your oasis of well-being. 450 square metres of interiors perfect for a family break. The setting is idyllic, perfect for taking time out to be together and recharge your batteries before returning to everyday life.


After a friendly meeting with your housekeeper, butler, security staff and above all your chef, it's time to explore the premises. The first impression is a bright one, as all the living areas face the landscaped garden and enjoy a soothing and inspiring sea view.

Intimate spaces, spacious bedrooms, including a suite with its own private terrace where you can let go for a massage session, and above all living areas that are ideal for getting together with friends and family. The living room, with its contemporary lounge, its dining room with its oval table offering a bird's eye view of the sea, and the adjoining terraces encourage you to share moments with your family.

Villa Canoubwest boasts a sumptuous garden planted with umbrella pines and Mediterranean plants. The focal point of the villa, the impressive 20-metre swimming pool with its sunken table for cocktails or refreshing meals, brings together young and old alike, especially as the adjoining barbecue extends every moment spent here.

The programme of your holiday is organised according to your desires, but there is no shortage of ideas to make your stay unforgettable. Depending on your preferences, Excellence Riviera can put together a tailor-made programme to ensure that all generations enjoy their stay in the tropics to the full.


After getting to know the professionals who will be at your service during your stay and taking possession of your villa, the first glasses of Champagne are served to celebrate the start of your holiday. Then it's off to your room to unpack your bags, put on your swimming costume and gather around the pool for a first afternoon of relaxation under the Tropezian sun. In the evening, head to the Cucina by Byblos for the first taste of the dolce vita of your holiday.

The next day, all attention is focused on the activities that will punctuate the children's holiday. A lifeguard booked for the holiday comes to you to give them his or her initial advice and ensure they have a safe holiday, while the parents get ready for the day. The whole family can then set off for the beaches of Pampelonne, just 10 minutes from La Canoubwest. Enjoy lunch at chef Benoît Dargère's table on the trendy Loulou Ramatuelle beach, which takes you back to the Riviera of the 1950s. Of course, you can also spend the afternoon with your feet in the sand, before taking a dip in the turquoise sea.

Back at the villa, your private chef will prepare one of his specialities, which you can enjoy on one of the terraces to the sound of the cicadas. To round off this second day on a cheerful note, the bravest of you can try out the thrill rides at Azur Park, the amusement park on the Gulf of Saint-Tropez.

On the third day, parents and children take the helicopter back to the Gorges du Verdon, a veritable natural jewel. The village of Moustiers Sainte-Marie and Lake Sainte-Croix will leave you speechless. If you're lucky enough to be staying at the villa in July, you'll want to make a diversion to fly over the lavender fields in bloom, and even have a picnic there. To round off this wonderful day, head back to Saint-Tropez and enjoy a sunset dinner on the Plage des Graniers.

You'll spend your fourth day like a Tropezian, enjoying breakfast on the terrace at the villa, before strolling through the narrow streets of the village of Saint-Tropez. Between luxury boutiques and local craft shops, you can pick up some typical Côte d'Azur nuggets. You can also go and meet the peacocks in the citadel of Saint-Tropez, a family outing par excellence, before ending your stroll with an aperitif on the terrace of the famous Café Sénéquier and its red façade, all facing the super-yachts in the port of Saint-Tropez.

At the villa, your chef welcomes you with a light meal. After a gourmet break, it's time to relax by the pool for some. An afternoon of beauty treatments for the ladies, with professionals coming to your home. Hairdressing, nails and make-up are all done by local experts. After a day of relaxation, everyone meets up at the Pan Deï Palais hotel's Italian restaurant, the Zetta.

Once the children have gone home and been looked after by professional baby-sitters, the parents enjoy the festive atmosphere at the Opéra, before extending the night at the legendary Byblos club, Les Caves du Roy.

The villa is an ideal retreat after a memorable night to recuperate and recharge. While the children join the Kids Club, parents can laze around the pool before everyone gathers for a barbecue lunch and an afternoon siesta and pétanque. Children can join the polo club for a riding lesson. A peaceful day is rounded off by an evening cookery lesson orchestrated by a sushi master who has come along for the occasion. Your new cooking skills will enable you to dazzle your guests once you return to your everyday life.

The sixth day of your holiday is also a time for relaxation, gastronomic delights and entertainment for the children.

After a week's stay at Villa Canoubwest, it's time for the traditional Saint-Tropez market. A must for any stay on the Côte d'Azur. Stroll the aisles of this Provencal market and meet the local craftsmen, as well as sampling local specialities such as olives and tapenade. Don't leave the market without a typical Saint-Tropez basket or hat. After a local morning, head to Bagatelle beach in Pampelonne.

This new meeting of the international elite gives you a taste of the festive atmosphere that is so characteristic of the beaches of Pampelonne. To round off your day in the tropics, spend the evening with your family playing mini-golf. Competition and laughter guaranteed.


Location yacht côte d'azur.

The eighth day marks the moment to leave Saint-Tropez and explore the Côte d'Azur. By chartering a yacht for two nights, this exploration becomes a privileged adventure. You retain your privacy and benefit from services as prestigious as those in your villa. Your yacht is delivered to the Baie des Canoubiers, as close as possible to your villa. As soon as you board, you're off in the direction of the Bay of Cannes and the Lérins Islands. After lunch on board and an afternoon discovering the marine treasures of the Pelagos sanctuary, you can disembark on the Croisette for a shopping spree before returning to your yacht for dinner and wine tasting on board, under the stars of the Cannes sky.

Enjoy a generous breakfast prepared by your crew as you wake up facing the rock of the Principality of Monaco. Then it's off to visit the principality and in particular its oceanographic museum, a perfect place to explore with the whole family. Next, head to the Carré d'Or in Monte Carlo for lunch at the newly refurbished Café de Paris. While the children return to the boat to enjoy their water toys, the parents can embark on an afternoon of shopping in the boutiques of the greatest luxury brands, from jewellery to haute couture. Then it's time to enter the legendary Monte-Carlo casino for some adrenaline-pumping moments in the gaming arcades. After such sensations, a dinner at the Peruvian table of the Coya restaurant will instantly transport you to South America. After a visit to Jimmy'z, return to the yacht and head back to Saint-Tropez.

Your last morning on board gives you the chance to enjoy the water toys and lounge by the yacht's pool or jacuzzi. After two such intense days, you'll return to the calm and cosy comfort of your villa. An 'at home' dinner lets you savour your chef's creations, in your own garden, under the stars of Saint-Tropez.

On the morning of the tenth day of your holiday, the children resume their swimming lessons and the parents their exercise routine in the villa's fitness room with their sports coach. At midday, everyone leaves the villa for lunch at Les Palmiers beach, where the festive atmosphere lures you away for an afternoon of lounging and entertainment. At the villa, a hairdresser and make-up artist will be on hand for a made-to-measure beauty treatment before the family dines at Gina's, the no-holds-barred address of multi-starred chef Eric Fréchon. While the children are being escorted home, parents can head to the Opéra to continue the evening's Tropezian festivities.

The following day sees the children take part in tennis lessons and the kids club at the sailing school, while the parents enjoy the legendary Club 55 at Pampelonne. The evening marks a moment of family sharing, with a dinner at the villa concocted by all the guests thanks to a cooking class orchestrated by your private chef. Once at the table, a magician even comes to enchant the gourmets.

Hire a boat for a day at Cap Taillat and you'll be delighted, young and old alike. With lunch on board, spectacular views and nautical pleasures, all the ingredients are there to make this an unforgettable day. After a day of intense emotions, a sauna session in the villa before letting yourself go in the hands of a professional masseuse will give you a gentle start to the evening. You can then choose between a light dinner prepared by your chef or a Peruvian meal at the Manko table.

On the thirteenth day, the children can spend the day at the Kids Club at Les Airelles Château de la Messardière, while the parents enjoy a stroll and shopping in the narrow streets of the village, before rounding off this Tropezian morning with a coffee and aperitif on the terrace at Le Sénéquier. At the end of the day, a photographer will join you at the villa to immortalise your stay with a family photoshoot in the gardens of Villa Canoubwest. A barbecue around the villa's swimming pool, facing the lights of the Gulf of Saint-Tropez, is the perfect way to round off this final evening.

The last day leaves a lasting impression on everyone. After saying goodbye to those who have accompanied you on your exceptional stay at Villa Canoubwest, a driver will pick you up and take you to your helicopters, which have been privatised for the occasion. Your flight offers you one last view of breathtaking scenery, including the Estérel massif and its emblematic red rocks.
