Soft colours and maximum visual continuity are the distinctive features of an 800m2 villa with swimming pool in Sainte-Maxime, on the French Riviera. Microtopping® and Rasico® Touch bring together internal and external spaces with the utmost visual harmony.

The villa is located in Sainte-Maxime, in the heart of the Gulf of Saint Tropez, on the French Riviera. This small town, which until 1800 was just a small fishing village, is today a tourist destination known for its wide beaches, clear sea and characteristic tranquillity. In this very panoramic residential area stands a recently built villa with an area of around 800m2 — a peaceful haven for a perfect holiday retreat.

The residence is an oasis of tranquillity surrounded by lush vegetation: its privileged and panoramic position offers its inhabitants the convenience of city life combined with the comfort of a high-level residential area. It is an elegant, modern dwelling with a well thought out classic style and neat lines which create a general harmony.

The interiors are characterised by natural light and soft colours, which give brightness and a sense of spaciousness to the interior. A combination of materials and fabrics creates a soft space, a welcoming environment of well-being — an atmosphere of a nest home, where you can take refuge and enjoy moments of peace.

Microtopping® in the Beige/Olive Grey shades was chosen precisely to create this effect of continuity between the internal and external environments. Microtopping® is an exclusive Ideal Work solution which can be installed on any solid surface in just 3 mm of thickness. With its tactile and velvety effect, Microtopping® is perfect for creating beautiful interiors with a warm yet contemporary atmosphere. Conversely, Rasico® Touch was used for the exterior — a durable, 3-4 mm thick, cement-based decorative finish for external use which conveys a soft appearance that perfectly combines with Microtopping®. Through protective treatments, Rasico® becomes resistant to abrasion, oils, water, atmospheric agents and UV rays, which makes it also ideal for pool decks.
