About Amanda Dawson-Taylor

I have been living in St Maximin since 1998, and am originally from UK. I speak fluent french and English and know the area well.

Amanda Dawson-Taylor purchased this villa in 2009

Why Amanda Dawson-Taylor chose Saint-Maximin-la-Sainte-Baume

This house is my principal residence but as I travel alot of my work and spend part of my time in UK, the house is available for Holiday rentals. I fell in love with the house due to its location, down a quet road (which is a cul de sac), so was happy as a location for my cat and dog (very little passing traffic, only the neighbours. Also, I love the way the house is set out, with most of the rooms on the ground floor, plus the lovely ature garden which has an upper and lower area and offers various spaces for relaxation and has at least 20 mature oak trees. Also, the big advantage is that all the ground floor Windows are french Windows, which lead out to the different areas of the garden, the terrace and the pool. The house is just a short drive from the village centre.

What makes this villa unique

Quiet area, down a cul de sac so little passing traffic (only the neighbours)

French doors from all the ground floor rooms, leading out to the garden

Private parking

Garden secure with automatic gate, and hedges all round so no vis à vis

Pet friendly (interiour parks for dog if needed and also to seperate pool area)

Can sleep up to 8 people

2 of the ground floor rooms are like a little seperate area with a bedroom and lounge (which is converts in to a bedroom).

Wifi Printer

Child/Dog stair security gate

Superbe séjour

  • 5 of 5

Maison tres spacieuse avec feu ouvert tres appréciable a cette période. 2 Chambres qui donnent sur la terrasse et piscine ensoleilles. Jardin clôturé et sécurisé. Maison de type provençale avec un beau cachet. Tout etait fonctionnel. La propriétaire ainsi que la dame qui s occupe de la maison sont très sympathiques et accueillantes. Nous y retourneront certainement. Et pourquoi pas en ete pour profiter de la belle piscine.

Séjour deuxième quinzaine de mai

  • 3 of 5

Séjour très agréable concernant les extérieurs et le jardin clos (pour le chien), la villa demanderait malgré tout un sérieux coup de rafraîchissement à l'intérieur .

Situation géographique idéale pour visiter la Provence verte, accueil et rapport qualité prix très convenable.
