Beautiful Architect owned apartment with pool and views of the Bay of St Tropez



Updated: 14-Oct-2016
Two bedroomed apartment with private pool only a short walk from town centre

Apartment La Traboule is a self-contained private wing of a villa situated in a quiet residential area of Sainte Maxime. Sandy beaches, marina, seafront promenade, cafes, shops, markets and a wide choice of restaurants are within a few minutes walk of the apartment. Saint Tropez is just a short ferry crossing over the bay (caught from the Marina in the centre of town).

There are 2 bedrooms on the ground floor, with wonderful sea views. The bedrooms both have king-sized beds and televisions with English satellite channels. Both bedrooms are air-conditioned. One bedroom has an ensuite toilet and shower room, the other has access to the family bathroom with separate toilet and shower room. Each bedroom has patio doors leading out onto the terrace overlooking the pool. Patio tables and chairs are provided, ideal for early morning coffee or that late evening drink.

There is a comfortably furnished lounge with flat screen TV with Sky package, DVD and CD player. The lounge has patio doors opening out onto a covered elegantly furnished terrace, the perfect spot for outdoor eating and relaxing. This area is complete with dining table and chairs, sunloungers and parasols, barbecue, and overlooks the pool with a stunning view of the Bay of St Tropez.

This terrace leads down to the private swimming pool (10 x 5 metres) with pool heating, safety alarm and solar shower, surrounded by a paved terrace also with sunloungers (parasols and drinks table have been provided). The terraces are tranquil, beautifully landscaped, not overlooked and catch the sun all day long.

There is also another separate elevated terrace with views towards Saint Tropez town. This area is also equipped with a dining table and seating for 4.

The spacious breakfast kitchen is fully equipped with American style fridge/freezer with ice maker and chilled water, oven/hob, microwave, coffee machine, dish-washer, washing machine/tumble drier and dining table and chairs.

This is a beautiful, peaceful apartment equipped with everything for a relaxing holiday. Located just a few minutes walk from the very heart of Sainte Maxime, a car is not essential on a day to day basis.

Should guests have a car there is a large drive (accessed by electric security gates) with a double covered car port and parking for several cars.

The apartment has recently been completely decorated and furnished throughout to an extremely high standard.

We have an English couple who manage the property for us, keeping the villa, garden and pool in an immaculate order.

A little piece of paradise!

About the Owner

Caroline owns a home interiors shop and Derek is an Architect who runs a practice in Sutton Coldfield. We fell in love with Sainte Maxime over 20 years ago, enjoying the beauty and scenery of the local area and the vibrancy of the town itself. For the last 14 years we have owned (and rented out) another beautiful apartment in the same Boulevard as this villa. When this larger and independent property became available we seized the opportunity to buy it. We still can't believe our good fortune.

Stunning villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the final week of our honeymoon in August 2016 and it was absolutely idyllic. The listing cannot really do it justice!

Perfect location within easy walking distance to the bustling centre of Sainte Maxime (and large supermarket), but just far enough removed to be completely tranquil. It also offers beautiful and essentially uninterrupted views of the ocean.

The villa was unbelievably well stocked with everything you could need, with Caroline very kindly also offering to pick up any extra bits we might want! It was also immaculately maintained and cleaned.

The large private pool is in sunlight all day, so a perfect place to keep cool.

Lovely touches from the owners, who couldn't do enough for us. We cannot recommend it enough - simply fantastic.

A little bit of paradise

  • 5 of 5

What a find this place is! The apparment was spotlessly clean, spacious and had all the mod cons you could need. Bedrooms and lounge all open onto a beautiful garden with a large private pool beyond which are the best views of the bay of St Tropez we have ever seen. The owners, Caroline and Derek are lovely and extremely helpful and friendly and have created a little bit of paradise that will not disappoint.

The location is perfect, just a 10 minute walk to the centre with lots of shops and Restaurants but enough distance to retain its peace and tranquility.

We enjoyed pre dinner drinks at L'Amiral at the Marina and watched the little boats which take you to St Tropez.

We loved our holiday and highly recommend it.

From the Owner

The property is situated in an exclusive area of Sainte Maxime called Semaphore. Most of the villas here have fabulous sea views but we additionally enjoy an easy short walk into the very heart of the town. It is so lovely to be able to enjoy the convenience and vitality of the shops, bars, restaurants and markets and then return to the peace and tranquility of our property. And the sea views of course, speak for themselves! Peaceful hours can be whiled away watching the activity in the bay, in between a dip in the pool and a glass of wine!
