How would your family like to stay in a gracious stately Mediterranean styled home on the French Riviera? Well now you can have that pleasure, but instead of traveling all the way over to Italy you may stay in the lovely prestigious classic community of St. Tropez in Destin’s Miramar Beach! This gated residential community is distinctively designed to have a rich romantic look complete with terracotta tiled roofs, stucco exteriors, spiral columned balconies and plenty of palms that sway in the gulf breeze. The beautiful beach is just a short distance away but you may have a hard time leaving this precious piece of paradise. St. Tropez is centered by a lavish lagoon style pool with spurting fountains, a bubbling hot tub and lush landscaping. A cabana nearby includes restroom facilities, showers and dressing rooms.
The rich interiors of Villa Paradis are almost castle-like due to its classically designed accoutrements, which are both regal and comfortable at the same time. There are four bedrooms that accommodate up to eight guests, and all in beds. The elegant entry foyer leads to a spindle railed spiral staircase that gracefully ascends all the way up to the third floor. Large stone-like paver tiled flooring and arch columned portals provide entryways into open living areas for a classic look. Twin leather couches face a flat screen TV in the corner while wide glass windows provide light and have doors leading out to a balcony. A dining table beside one of the columned entries has four carved chairs that sit beneath a charming vintage multi-shaded chandelier. The Gourmet Kitchen has a European country look with mottled granite countertops, stylized arbor range hoods and rich chocolate colored custom cabinetry. A multi-sided cut island provides additional seating. There is also a table out on the beautiful balcony available for dining al fresco.
The staircase leads majestically upstairs with multiple arched windows, shaded wall sconces and a hanging chandelier to provide light along the way. This takes you to the three Guest Quarters and the Master Bedroom Suite. Each room is comfortably furnished and quite elegant with elaborate richly carved headboards on queen sized beds in three rooms with a set of twin beds in another. Lovely lamps and decorative art throughout provide a warm French flair which creates a wonderful setting. The Master Bedroom has a full private luxury bath en suite and along with one of the Guest Rooms has access to a romantic balcony.
The wonderful world of St. Tropez seems out of time and space, but is actually located in the heart of Miramar Beach. Grocery stores, pharmacies and wine outlets are all close by. This location off Scenic Gulf Drive places you near popular gulf front restaurants and fun friendly beach bars which are just minutes away. Silver Sands is also located in Miramar Beach and happens to be the largest discount designer outlet in the nation. Professional tennis and championship golf are nearby at Seascape where Ocean Reef Resorts guests receive reduced rates. Baytowne Wharf in Sandestin is also close by with restaurants, seasonal festivals, free concerts and family fun.
