About the Owner

We are a small family and had a home in this area now for 25years, we first had a little apartment in La Nartelle, then, through a french friend we came to see this one and just fell in love with it! We adore the quiet area, the wildlife and the view across the bay, yet 5 minutes away we are in the bustling town centre! We never tire of the place and we hope that you will spend time in our home and end up feeling that you love the place and the area as much as we do!

Fringing Rosé with a view of the bay

  • 4 of 5

We are just home from a week stay in this bright, beautiful and restful house with our two children aged 3 and 5.

From the moment we arrived I could feel myself relaxing. It is set amongst tall pine trees which was great for exploring with the kids.

The house had everything we needed and more. It was clean and well maintained and the owners couldn't have been more helpful.

There is loads to do both around the grounds and in Saint Maxime.

I have already and would continue to recommend this accommodation to anyone who can manage steps. There are beautiful views from the balcony and waking in the morning and opening the shutters to see blue skies will be a lasting memory for me.

A lovely property in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Sainte-Maxime, the property, it's location, the facilities, the town and locality were all superb. The situation of the property s fantastic, with lovely views all around and a balcony and terrace to sit back, admire and generally relax. The property is very well equipped with everything you could need. The boys loved the pools, the tennis courts and table tennis, and felt secure enough to explore the woods and have great fun. The whole ambience and atmosphere is truly great, and we can't wait to go back again!

Almost Perfect

  • 4 of 5

Sainte Maxime, a new destination for our summer holiday. Family of four were not disappointed, such a variety, lots to do.The accommodation was charming, quaint little bijou french house in a private gated pine wood park, delightful balconies with a chance to catch the sun or be seduced by the view.

We all enjoyed the grounds and made good use of the swimming pool, table tennis table and tennis court (although court surface not even rather frustrating for tennis junior!).

Plumbing fantastic.

It would have been perfect if there had been twin beds in the second bedroom, and just a little frustrating to have so few plug sockets for mosquito machines!!!!!!

All agreed we would like to return next time for a longer stay, 7 days is not enough.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you enjoyed your time in our home! The amount of sockets in the house is how it was built, we did think there were enough for most eventualites, as there are at least 3 in each room, but will look into it further and perhaps provide more if we can do so, so thank you for bringing it to our attention! The beds are both doubles, as stated in the advertising, have no plans to change them at present, as it is our home too! The tennis court is used as a day to day court for the residents,but there are 2 tennis clubs in Sainte Maxime should anyone want to play seriously...and a lovely one, right on the coast overlooking the sea, just outside Les Issambres!

Space and Quiet

  • 4 of 5

As soon as you open the door you will see that this is not the usual holiday let. Clean, spacious and a surprise as every door and window is opened to reveal another delightful view over the Bay of St Tropez, or the spacious grounds with no intrusive neighbours, or the larger than expected beds and bedrooms. Plenty of space for three adults and a teenage daughter. We only used washing machine, coffee machine and basics for a peach, melon, baguette, charcuterie and salad existence but everything you need is there. (You can get a good coffee/pastry breakfast at the boulangerie at the turn in.)

Remarkably cool property for a mid August (very hot) week and a quiet Domain despite being the French August Bank Holiday week. Good Pool, rarely busy.

Ok, so once inside the security gates you need to drive over a tired (but beautiful) road and negotiate 30 steps (or explore to find a route with only 10!) and be careful on the uneven courtyards. But this is a small price to pay for this gem in the ever increasing pack-them-in developments that the charm of Ste Maxime has spawned over the past twelve years that we have been visiting.

If you love the French Med, love Var, or love Ste Maxime, you will be hard pressed to find a better home for your stay.

Fantastic and relaxing holiday

  • 4 of 5

A good experience from start to finish. Booking was easy, owners extremely helpful and any queries answered quickly. House itself was a 2 story upside-down house which looked deceptively small from the front, set in a lovely setting full of pine trees. Ideal setting for children to burn off energy with beautiful views across the Gulf of St. Tropez.

House was cheerfull - decorated in typical provencal style - yellows and blues. It had a good standard of equipment, both in the lounge and kitchen. Beds were comfy and rear balcony looked pretty at night with its palm trees and solar lights. Lots of piping-hot water anytime of day or night to shower. Pool was clean and well-maintained and there was also a tennis court, table tennis and boules area.. Nice to come back to at the end of a day out exploring, or at the beach and only an hour away from the airport.

In essence a lovely place for a restful holiday without being far away from the action. Will definitely return if we come this way again.

Great Holiday in Property No. 65501

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house which is in a lovely setting with views across the bay. The house is light and airy and very peaceful with no traffic at all. There is plenty of room in the lovely lounge with flat screen TV and satellite. The kitchen is an adequate size and well equipped for holidays and the downstairs bedrooms are a decent size and in the coolest part of the house - one with king-size bed and one with a double, lots of clean linen and towels too! Good shower, bath and separate WC, good for undisturbed baths!

The outside spaces are pretty with seating areas on the balconies. The pool and tennis court an added bonus. The whole house and surrounding areas were spotless and we had a relaxing time. It's about 5 minutes into town and the beaches by car, but there are several supermarkets and a bakery at the bottom of the driveway. All in all I would recommend this to anyone wanting to visit this part of France.

From the Owner

We hope that you find it's mix of light and airy, mixed with cosy character as inviting and relaxing as we do....We find it just a nice place to spend time...it's not a total holiday home. it is our home for some of the year,and as such we have tried to make it as comfortable as we can.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Nice at 90 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Golfe de Sainte Maxime at 1 Kilometres Nearest Train : Frejus at 20 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : Le Muy at 15 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : at 1 Kilometres Nearest Ski : Isola 2000, at 150 Kilometres Nearest Beach : La Nartelle, Sainte MAxime plage at 1.5 Kilometres Car: recommended

Ste Maxime is a bustling, charming coastal town set midway between St Tropez and Frejus. There are 6kms of safe, sandy beaches and many more rocky coves ideal for snorkelling! There are several golf courses within reach, the nearest at Ste Maxime itself. The town centre itself has lots to offer, there are plenty of restaurants and shops, 2 large supermarkets and of course an abundance of bakeries! There are several markets, the largest on a Friday morning...selling everything you can think of...but you have to be up early and also during the evenings in the summer a local crafts market in the backstreets of the old town. Monaco, Nice and Italy are within driving distance and if you get fed up of driving take the' bateau vert' (ferry service) to St Tropez famed for....well need we say more!

Other Activities: all watersports, Aqualand, Karting

From the Owner

We fell in love with this house the first time we saw it! We had had an apartment in La Nartelle and didn't want another souless property.We loved the fact that people live and work from here and it is not another 'tourist residence', .we love that our neighbours are here all year, and we have been welcomed into the community, helped and accepted and especially we love the fact that we can wake up each morning and have our coffee overlooking St Tropez, watch l'esquirou (squirels) up and down the trees from the lounge window, or listen to the scops owl at night! We do not offer a 'package' style holiday, but if you want a little taste of french life...Bienvenue!!

  • SPECIAL NOTES.. Please note there are quite a lot of steps to the property....We do not find them a problem and we are not that young! but if you feel that they would be a problem to you it may not be the house for you. Extra care must also be taken with smaller children,as the external staircase is open treads and the internal staircase is spiral and stone, tiled and fairly tight. There is lots of open spaces for children to play without the worry of traffic, the pool and the tennis and table tennis are all within 2 mins walk...there is also a petanque court next to swimming pool. There are fans but no air conditioning at the property.
