About the property

Grand House, 2 Bedroom with en suite bathrooms, home from home for the owners

. A beautifully restored, grand house, in magnificent grounds, overlooking the bay of St Tropez, which was owned and lived in by Paul Geraldi, a famous poet of the region before his death in the 19th century.

Rental costs is advertised in euros. There are no hidden costs. Linen, parking is included in the price. Minimum stay 7 nights. Contact me on if you would like more details that i may not have included on this site

The property is a pleasant, 20 minute easy walk, or 5 to 10 minute drive into the center of Ste Maxime, which makes it far enough away to always enjoy peace and tranquility. Ste Maxime is 15 kilometers from St Tropez. There are frequent ferries leaving Ste Maxime for St Tropez. St Maxime is one of the most beautiful, and sought after small towns in the Cote d'Azur with all amenities one would require on a holiday. We even own our own little beach which you can get to through the gradens in front of the villa, through the locked gates from the swimming pool area. The keys are in the apartment for the two gates. The apartment is approximate 90 sq meters.

The kitchen is open plan. All furnishing and fittings are of a high quality and good taste. Since its our second home, this is not a typical rental property. Most comforts are provided, with help on hand, if need be. A balcony, over looking the sea runs the whole length of the apartment, with uninterrupted sea view, and access from the master bedroom, sitting room and kitchen area. There is a dining area here as well.

We have secure and safe off street parking in the grounds of the villa. The shared pool is situated in the beautiful extensive gardens. Sleeps 4 people plus there is a travel baby cot. Sleeps 4 adults or adults and children. 200 euros damage deposit To be returned to you in cash on non damage departure. 100 euros to be added to the rent towards the cleaning. we have an american water and ice dispenser fridge which is much appreciated. hairdrayer in each bathroom. in fact all you would expect in a well equiped family home.

Wonderful sea views apartment near lovely seaside St Maxime

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful first floor apartment in great condition with fabulous views from its balcony across St Tropez Bay. Set in beautiful converted old building in lovely gardens. Spotlessly clean and two very nice bedrooms, both with air con. Lovely owner and very helpful manager, Valerie. We have been coming here every year as a family since our daughter was three - she is now 17! Need we say more ...

This must be the most perfect place in the world! Even though the hot summer weather had not yet arrived, the area was brilliant- St Tropez, wine tasting at the local chateaus, mountain villages and great beaches, St Maxime’s shops and restaurants ..... The apartment was even better! I was met on arrival by Valerie who acquainted me with the apartment and it’s many features- cable TV, sound system, perfect internet, washer dryer, etc etc. and even briefed us on the best places to go locally, all of which were a short walk away. The flat itself is beautiful with two double bedrooms and two bathrooms, a lovely living room and dining area and a modern kitchen- all spotlessly clean. The balcony is breathtaking with uninterrupted views across the bay to St Tropez, which was a hive of boating activity even at this time of year. There are lovely gardens and nice big pool, although it it was a bit early in the season for swimming. All in all, I can’t recommend this apartment highly enough, especially at the reasonable price, and we will definitely return soon.

It was a wonderful stay.

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the property was as we hoped. It was a great location with great views over the sea and had plenty of room for the 3 of us. It's very quiet which we liked and within easy distance of good beaches and the town. Very restful and recharging.

This really is a dream holiday property in a fantastic location, just 1 mile from the center of Saint Maxime, making a lovely seaside walk every morning. The kitchen, living area and master bedroom all open out onto balconies ( we ate outside every day ) with an amazing view across the bay of Saint Tropez.

Private parking and pool just added to the whole experience and we very much look forward to our next trip.

A 5-Star Villa to which you will want to return

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Toi et Moi villa in Sainte Maxime, and we were again delighted with the villa. It is obviously not a commercial rental, but someone's much loved second home. This shows throughout the home in it's furnishings, appliances, and care. We hope to continue coming back to "Toi et Moi". The view remains spectacular!

Toi & Moi, the villa in which we have our apartment is directly opposite the Mediterranean sea, looking towards Ste Tropez. The views from every room are magnificent. We are in walking distance to the lovely town of Ste Maxime, with many restaurants, in and out door markets, marina, casino, open theater which holds many free shows in the spring & summer. There are also wonderful stylish shops, a few supermarkets, etc. We have tennis courts a few minutes away from the villa. In fact, there is no shortage of things to do. You can take the boat from the marina to Ste Tropez or drive the 15 kilometers, but due to the traffic in the summer, the boat is a better, and more enjoyable option. There are many beautiful small villages and vine yards you can visit in the area. There are some lovely beaches on both the left and the right of the villa which you are able to walk to. Some of them have restaurants and bars. If you drive to the beach, there is no shortage of parking in the front.

Our turn around days are on Saturdays for rentals.

Other Activities: Shopping, boating, mini golf. tennis. golf. water sports biking hiking walking
