DOMAINE DU VIEUX SAUNIER, SAINT TROPEZ.
The Vieux Saunier domain is located in the middle of nature, above the bay of Saint Tropez, between La Croix Valmer, Ramatuelle and Gassin. This domain counts a set of 3 villas, in the accomplished silence of the song of the birds, when the night is still rocked of stars and that the day sounds with the song of the nightingale, when the park is this airy accomplice, with the return of the beach, « hay of the bocks and the lemonade », according to the rimbaldien verse, to the postponement to the next day of the imperfect readings, a glass of rosé of the scrubland in the hand, a cigarette for the spirit, a cigar for the wind, and that the hours with the perfume of sidereal honey, flow, like the wine, in its clear dress, towards carnal agapes, then, then, the immense breathing of the sky takes again the life to the top of the dream. … in its pulmonary relaxation…. a sweetness of life is made against time, in the moment when, from this park, rises the joyful hour.
This Domaine du Vieux Saunier is a haven of peace, bordered by vines, those that overlook the sea from the top of the hill. Evasions, through the Mediterranean blue, white sails of sailboats, poetic proposals, visual, which tune the gaze to the sea sky, in these blues that make the charm of the South. Between sea and countryside, between fragrant forest where the eucalyptus mingles with the pines, all along a free path, scents of garrigue and flowers embalm, there, powder the day, the time becomes virtuous…
Pleasures of the senses, rest of the soul, wonder of the days, propitiatory beauties of the nights, here, far from the money of its fatal imprint, from its Californian injunctions, one can feel free and sensitive, in rest, free of oneself and in celebration….
To these gifts of the Vieux Saunier domain, which still resonates with its wisdom and philosophy, we must add the presence of friends, Vanessa and Emmanuel, who are royally present. They magically honor everything that rises like a permanent song, everything that spreads through the very name of the Vieux Saunier domain, this salt of the happy and good life… There is more, much more, than money and gold, there is the meaning of Life and the Salt of it…to be oneself in the enchantment of the hour, in listening, in breathing, in joys, available to all that, of good, happens and makes sense…, swarms, makes Journeys….enchante.
If there are still magical places in the world, even secret, there is no doubt that the Vieux Saunier domain is one of them, here, a few hours away, close to the sky and in its charms…
