The view is the best in the South of France. You are within striking distance of the glamour of St Tropez if that is what you want, but the hillside is peaceful and the local village is a delight. The sea is calm and the sandy beaches are [perfect for children, the local food nearby is first class.

What makes this villa unique

Peace, privacy, room for two families and friends, really good restaurants nearby and the glamour of St Tropez when you are in the mood.

'William G, Fantastic week on the Cote d'Azur

Date of Stay 12 September 2015

The view from the terrace at Gulfstream is impossible to beat. The villa is about ten minutes into the hills above the Med and in a very quiet area. It's fifteen minutes to restaurants and the small town of Les Issambres. The villa is well kitted out with a large kitchen/living area, upper and lower terraces and a lovely pool looking out over the sea. The caretaker bought extra baby kit for us and could not have been more helpful. A great week

Guestbook comments from the owner

Reviewed February 27, 2015 for a stay in June 2014

5 stars

“This magnificent home set atop of mountains overlooking the Mediterranean is perfect for a family vacation. The pool and grounds are spectacular; we had a hard time leaving the house in favor or touring the nearby vineyards, St. Tropez, etc. The location is convenient to the entire Cote D' Azur as we easily made day trip to Monaco, Nice and well into the Provence. Especially enjoyed Ramatuelle which was less than 30 minutes drive and home to some of the best rose wines we tasted.

For families like us, you'll be especially happy with the master bedroom suite on the main living floor (actually one story above the ground and pool, and the other bedrooms were downstairs. We loved the meals we cooked after a day of touring and visiting markets and eating on the terrace off the living room, overlooking the pool and the Sea. Most dramatic views!!!!!”

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of five women enjoying our annual girls holiday. We all agreed that this was our best villa yet. Mainly because the villa gave a home from home feel. It was extremely well equipped and very comfortable. The dining room was lovely and near the kitchen. The living area had comfy leather sofa's which was great for chilling out with snacks in front of the TV.

The outside was fabulous with an amazing view. There were several different areas to sit and escape. Nice sun shade on the patio,although after a certain time it did not shield you from the sun. The outside eating area was an extension of the dining area inside and was very convenient.

There were two enormous en suite bedrooms which were lovely. One extremely small bedroom which could do with refurbishement. And two other twin bedrooms of a decent size.

We thought a little refurbishement could be done in the villa,dodgy plugs etc. But this certainly did not spoil the holiday. Caroline who met us was very chatty and very helpful.

The only down side of the villa is we found it difficult to find every time we went out!!!!!! If you have a sat nav then you really need to set it when you are at the villa to HOME. then you will be OK!!!!

The area is fabulous. It is the gateway to loads of local areas such as ,Frejus,San Tropez,st Maxime and POrt Grimoud..

We would all recommend this villa highly and would use again.

We, a group of 10 friends from the Netherlands, loved to stay at the Gulf stream villa! The late evenings on the balcony area were amazing. BBQ, pool, drinks and watch the sunset together. Enough space for everyone and the villa is full with luxury.

If we are staying in the Cote D'Azure again in the future we would definitely go back.

Wonderful villa with stunning views! We greatly enjoyed our stay.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Gulf Stream Villa! Caroline met us at the villa to exchange keys and she was very welcoming and helpful. The villa was perfect - we were a family of 11 including 2 children and there was so much to do for everyone. The bedrooms each had a bathroom which was very nice! The pool was amazing and we loved the boules, ping pong, bbq areas. The kitchen was very well equipped with double oven and a huge fridge. Les Issambres is a sweet town and very well situated for visiting the towns along the French Riviera. We enjoyed beautiful stunning views from the villa from morning to night. Hope to come again! Thank you!

Gorgeous property with equally as stunning view

  • 5 of 5

We had man excellent time at the Gulf Stream villa. It is perched atop a hill with breathtaking views of the gulf of St Tropez, which is especially alluring come sunset. Additionally, it is located about 5 minutes walk away from a trail head that disperses into endless routes around the hills. The house itself is well stocked (fully-equipped kitchen, comfortable bedding and a good selection of games and movies). Perfect!

Just Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED Gulf Stream Villa. Met and exceeded all our expectations. The view was truly fabulous, the pool wonderful, the dining rooms indoors and outdoors were amazing, as well as the lounging patio. We were 4 couples and 3 children, plenty of room for all and we all enjoyed ourselves immensely. Well-maintained. The ferry from Les Issambres to Saint Tropez was great. All the food in the area was fabulous and we would highly recommend La Ponche in Saint Tropez as a fantastic restaurant.

Thank you Gulf Stream Villa, you made our dream vacation on the Riviera come true!
