About Tony Mellor

We have spent holidays in France for many years. When our children were young the family spent school holidays on camping and caravan sites in many different parts of France. However we enjoyed the sunshine and the wonderful variety of scenery in the south of France that when we retired we decided to buy a holiday home there.

The town of Sainte Maxime ticked all the boxes for what we wanted so we bought the apartment in 2004.

Tony Mellor purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Tony Mellor chose St Tropez region

The apartment is situated right in the heart of Sainte Maxime town. It is close to all the amenities and close to the beach. No need to have a car while here because everything is close by or you can get public transport to take you wherever you want to go.

Shopping is easy as there is a big supermarket just 3 or 4 minutes walk away and there are many local shops nearby.

What makes this apartment unique

Sainte Maxime is a wonderful place to spend a holiday at any time of the year. You can always find plenty to do during the day and during the night. There are plenty of bars and restuarants where you can eat and drink. The beaches are lovely for swimming and paddling and the water is a beautiful blue colour throughout the year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Tony

Just a short message on our return to the UK ; thanks so much for the use of your apartment last week. It is more spacious that the pictures suggest, wonderfully equipped, and so close to everything. It was perfect for us.

Thanks again

Chris, Susan and family

Dear Tony

The apartment was great; very roomy, comfortable and clean and in an excellent location. We were particularly impressed by the excellent provision of appliances and equipment in the apartment and especially by the beach equipment. It was far better equipped than the “luxury” villa on a holiday complex that our daughter, son-in-law and grand children were staying in.

Well appointed, spacious 1st floor apartment. Comfortable and clean. Close to the sea and the restaurants of St Maxime. We would like to return and enjoy the bakery which is just a short walk from the flat (under a minute).

A fantastic apartment!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic apartment - beautifully presented, light and clean with a lovely large balcony. The air conditioning was great to have. The best part though is the location as it is 1 minute from the beach and all the wonderful shops in St Maxime. The owners were so friendly and helpful. Would most definitely recommend. Thank you!

My first visit to Ste Maxime

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is situated in a perfect location for all amenities near by, a few minutes walk to the Beach and shops, restaurants and town. A huge hyper market within a few minutes walk away too. Perfect location. It was lovely to walk in to an apartment that was so clean and well looked after. The description was spot on, with lots of room for a family of four, comfortable beds. The kitchen had every utensil needed along with all other pans and crockery. The Owner was very friendly and helpful and i felt very safe transferring money over. Full contract and receipts of payment and paperwork was always returned to me. We loved our first visit to this apartment and place, we had a lovely holiday. We didn't dislike anything about it. Having two teenage children that wanted Wifi we could also purchase this in the Tourist Office. Yes I would recommend this apartment to my friends and family and I would have no hesitation about staying in this apartment. Its a YES in every way.

Fantastic location and value

  • 5 of 5

We were really impressed with both the location and the standard of the apartment. Right in St Maxime - near to the beach and amenities (restaurants, supermarkets, shops) we had a fantastic fortnight. Staying with two young children, the apartment was ideal - robust, very clean, modern well-appointed and equipped with everything we needed for our stay. Air conditioning made the hot nights comfortable and a super balcony to eat on of an evening and morning was a lovely addition. Would really recommend the apartment to either families or couples. The beaches around St Maxime are varied and close to the apartment, would recommend a trip to St Tropez on the boat also. So much to do in the immediate area of St Maxime, we did not use our hire car for the two weeks of our holiday. We would certainly stay here again!
