Villa Seynave, 1962



A modernist masterpiece by Jean Prouvé

An exemplary work of the constructive genius of its creator, unique for its scale, the quality of its site and its services, the Villa Seynave has been listed as a Historic Monument since 1993.

On a landscaped plot of 1,665 m², the villa has a surface area of ​​150 m².

It includes an entrance, a living room with a steel fireplace in front of which a pit allows you to sit on the floor, a dining area, a kitchen, a master suite with bedroom, dressing room and bathroom, two bedrooms with outlets and water, a fourth bedroom with storage and bathroom and a laundry room.

The kitchen, the bathrooms and the cupboards occupy the white painted concrete modules. The other spaces are fully open and modular thanks to movable accordion partitions. This freedom of movement is reinforced by the absence of doors. The large bay windows accentuate the fluidity of the whole and offer views through the surrounding vegetation.

The kitchen, wooden cupboards and interior fittings were designed by Charlotte Perriand, who would have baptized the house “Tan Yan” in reference to her stay in Japan.

The surface-mounted lighting integrated into the aluminum stiffeners is designed by Serge Mouille.

Villa Seynave enjoys a quiet and unspoiled environment in the Domaine de Beauvallon, located on the bay of Saint-Tropez. It is located 300 meters from the Domaine’s beaches (direct access on foot to the Vieux Moulin and Gros Pin beaches). On the edge of the Beauvallon golf course, the house offers privileged access to the services and sports activities of the area: tennis courts, yoga club, nautical activities, horseback riding, cycle paths and coastal hikes, and more.
