About Katrina Denoux
Villa Tropez started as the complete refurbishment of an old bastide in the vineyards near St Tropez, of a former game lodge & farm. The Provencal country ambience remains, alongside the Villa's new role: providing relaxed accommodation with Provence meets Côte d'Azur charm, for family birthday or anniversary events, corporate weekends, wellness retreats, gourmet tours and film locations. In the off-season it is still often home to Australian-born Katrina Denoux, Frenchman Christophe Denoux, and their 10 year old Franco-Aussie twins. They divide their time between Sydney, London & Provence.
Katrina Denoux purchased this Villa in 2006

Wonderful villa for a family & friends special occasion holiday retreat
We were looking for a villa large enough for our family and friends to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and the Villa Tropez proved to be the perfect spot.
The villa, pool and gardens provided exactly the right scale of accommodation, to allow young families and more senior family members, space and comfort to enjoy our stay together, as well as relax. The rooms are all spacious, clean & well presented, with air-conditioned and the separate annex space gives just the right amount of segregation from the early morning risers, yet feels completely integrated as part of the stay, unlike other villas with additional space.
The outside dinning areas are perfect, one close to the pool (with pizza oven!) and an additional, sumptuous balcony area with perfect views and an amazing sunset whilst dining.
The villa is suitably off the beaten track for peace and quiet, in beautiful countryside, yet only a few minutes away to reach the local villages, shops and attractions of the area.
Sharon and Jonathan provided friendly yet unobtrusive care and support for our stay, as well as really terrific, personal care from Katrina whilst booking.
Thank you for making our special occasion and holiday so perfect & memorable.
Dear Matt and family
That you so much for your kind words about your stay at Villa Tropez. We are honoured you decided to book our accommodation for your 10th wedding anniversary, and are so glad the residence and facilities lived up to the expectations of your celebratory holiday. We’d love to welcome you back one day, being such a lovely family - we were very lucky to host guests such as yourselves.
Great place for a week with kids
We had a lovely week at this villa. Our group included 3 families - 5 adults (+1 for 2 nights) and 8 kids from 1 to 9 years old.
Katrina was very responsive and flexible with our booking and organisation.
The pool is amazing - one of the few places we’ve stayed with a pool big enough for a large group of kids and adults without feeling like you’re jumping on top of each other.
The house layout works well. The owners are flexible with bed configuration and will set it up according to your preference.
A couple of small things to keep in mind: the upstairs bedroom has a tricky access staircase that you wouldn’t want young kids going up and down; the kitchen is fine and well-equipped, but not a large, open-plan style that you find in some villas (not an issue for us - we used the bbq on the fantastic terrace most nights - but may not suit groups looking to enjoy a social meal prep experience).
The property managers were on site to welcome us and did a mid-week clean. They were also responsive to questions as we were getting settled.
We loved our week at this villa and would stay again. Thanks Katrina!
Excellent location... everithing was working on perfect way! the perfect place to vacationed.
We were so impressed with this property and we loved every minute we were here. The villa has everything you could want for a luxury stay. The kitchen had all that you could need/ want, the spaces around the villa have been carefully thought about - there are places to get some peace and quiet from a large group should you want it, many places to sit and enjoy meals and have different views - and the views were stunning. It was nicely positioned between all the places we wanted to visit. The bedrooms and furnishings are beautiful - It surpassed my expectations. Katrina, the owner was extremely easy to liaise with and responded quickly and comprehensively to my queries. I would not hesitate to return. Thank you Katrina for a wonderful week at your villa
A holiday Villa dreams are made of!
We all enjoyed a holiday dreams are made of. Over and over again each and every member of our family said how amazing it all was and how grateful they were to have been given an opportunity to experience staying in such a beautiful villa. They all loved the pool and had so much fun in there together. The Villa was lovely and homely and everything flowed well, which enabled everyone to really relax.
We very much appreciate the thoughts on your stay, and are so happy to hear it was a dream holiday location for your family of all ages to enjoy.

Villa Tropez is about as close to St Tropez as you can get, without being imposed upon by other holiday villas or dealing with daily traffic jams. The location can’t be beaten: well situated to avoid coastal traffic on the congested D559/98, & easy access to beaches, shops, and St Tropez.
The property is not situated anywhere near a busy road; quiet meandering vineyard laneways provide the entry access to the quartier Villa Tropez is located in.
It has the luxury of privacy & space on one acre of lush gardens. Elevated in the Gassin des Maures hills, bordering Cogolin vineyards, it is close to Cogolin supermarkets & well located for driving to beaches, with direct access to local roads parallel to the main congested coastal route, avoiding most of the traffic St Tropez is infamous for. (Traffic is often at a standstill from St Maxime to St Tropez).
Supermarket, bakery, shops (Cogolin) are a 3 minute drive. Gassin & Grimaud hilltop villages, St Tropez bay beaches less than 10mins, Pampelonne beach 20 mins (traffic permitting).
Stroll out the front gate through vineyards, sampling local cellar-door wines. Soak up rays & cocktails at the beach clubs of Pampelonne. Explore St Tropez town.
