Villa Anthéa - Anthéor Saint Raphaël

The Private Desk of Côte d'Azur Sotheby's International Realty offers you this superb waterfront villa between the red rocks of the Esterel massif and the blue of the Mediterranean Sea, in Antheor.

Comprised of 3 houses, the Villa Anthéa, a guest house and a keeper's house, this exceptional property is part of the artistic history of the area and offers an escape to nature only 45 minutes from the Croisette.

Discover Villa Anthéa

The master villa, which dates back to the 1920s, consists of a large living room with dining room, a kitchen and three en suite bedrooms including a master bedroom. The location of the Villa Anthéa makes it a property of great exception, indeed it overlooks the Plage des Lucioles while keeping the privacy of its inhabitants thanks to a design turned to the taste and discretion.

The property offers very high quality services, quality materials, a spa, a sauna, a roof terrace, and a swimming pool surrounded by vast terraces on the same level as the living rooms, without forgetting the private staircases that lead down to the small beach below.

Also on the grounds is a guest house of approximately 100 sq.m bathed in light and offering an enchanting view of the water as well as a janitor's house of 50 sq.m to be renovated on a dedicated plot of 30m² in addition to the main plot.

A mansion steeped in history

This immaculate mansion formerly called La Lezardiere and with a total surface area of 400m², sitting on the magmatic rocks of the Esterel (with access to the beach, spa, pool and solarium), was an artists' den. It was home to, among others, novelist Georges Simenon (father of Inspector Maigret) and Belle époque painter Paul Gervais, for whom the house was a second home and a source of inspiration.

A streamlined architecture

In 2018 the property begins 4 years of renovations. The new version of the villa respects the historical architectural details while bringing sobriety, elegance and calm. The facades have been freed from their superfluous details, ordered and purified to find elegance and harmony, in the simplicity of forms and volumes. The aim is to give the property serenity and modernity while paying tribute to the grandiose character of its location.

Both contemporary and classic, the interior atmosphere, uniting past and present, is timeless. The materials were selected for their ability to create a harmonious relationship between yesterday and today and to give strength and substance to the interior design. The color palette is bright and synthetic, energized by touches of bright colors in a harmonic range combining energy and softness.

A place conducive to contemplation

A spa with a view of the sea has been built into the cliff. This intimate and discreet place, facing the horizon, is dedicated to contemplation and relaxation. The heart of the house houses a sauna from which you can see the sea. The main roof has been converted into a solarium. An idyllic place for sunbathing protected by a large screen with the Mediterranean Sea as the only opposite.

A small kiosk is located at the end of the walkway. It overlooks the surprisingly clear turquoise waters. This unique place invites to the pleasures of a summer evening, to meditation or to a shared romantic moment.
