St. Tropez, France is located in the beautiful French Riviera in an area known for its luxury and elegance. The name St. Tropez comes from a semi-legendary martyr named Saint Torpez. He was beheaded during the reign of Nero and his body was place on a boat with a rooster and a dog.
His body landed in the present day area known as St. Tropez. During his life, Tropez was a renowned captain, who drove Spanish forces away in the 17th century. Parties commemorating the Tropezian army are still celebrated in the area. Today, St. Tropez waterfront estates line the gorgeous French Riviera.
Starting in 1989, realtor and architect, Hubert Abitbol, has been successfully been showing people their dream homes for nearly 20 years. Recently, Abitbol as launched a new site (http://www.villasttropez.com/en/) that focuses on homes in St. Tropez and the surrounding areas in southern France.
Hubert Abitbol is no stranger to business. In 1989, he started Riviera, a real estate firm that still thrives today. Recently, however, Abitbol has taken to the internet, launching his new website, http://www.villasttropez.com/en/.
The site focuses on beautiful properties in St. Tropez, a beautiful town located in the southern France. Abitbol’s specialty is something to be reckoned with; in North America, many new properties are cookie cutter homes with no personality, Abitbol is able to find examples of living art for people to make their homes.
“I love houses,” Abitbol explains. “I studied as an architect and as soon as I got my diploma, I wanted to build Mediterranean-styled houses in St. Tropez.”
The easy-to-use website is equipped for the international set as it is readable in both French and English (http://www.villasttropez.com/en/). Abitbol also has tips for potential buyers. renters and sellers that make the overall experience as smooth as possible. This is especially crucial for Abitbol, who prides himself on being able to communicate information with his clients:
“There needs to be a way to communicate,” he says. “Everybody involved needs to be confident because you’re not only dealing with someone’s investment, you’re also dealing with their livelihood.”
With humble beginnings, Abitbol’s Riviera began nearly two decades ago and now caters to celebrities and the average person alike. Abitbol’s only desire is to show people beautiful houses that they will transform into their homes. This is particularly noticeable on http://www.villasttropez.com/en/, as the photographs highlight the vibrant, magnificent homes that Abitbol is ready to show anyone who loves architecture.
“This city is not only a vacation, it’s also art,” he says of St. Tropez’s beauty.
Even for people who aren’t computer savvy, Rivera’s easy-to-understand website is making it possible for people who dream of living in one of France’s best kept secrets possible.
Still, at the end of the day, Abitbol’s project in http://www.villasttropez.com/en/ is spawned from his enthusiasm for the places that he shows people: “I love to communication to my clients my passion about houses,” he says. “This was a natural path for me.”
