Our van is on a quiet plot, close to all amenities, and 150 yards from a beautiful pool with lifeguards, a 5 a side football pitch, basketball and tennis courts. The van has a washing machine, two fridges, air con, a small freezer, a TV and DVD player with English films and books available. We are situated in an oasis of greenery extending for 25 hectares, keeping the van cool, but giving many opportunities for sunbathing on our sunbeds, chairs, or hammock. There is a supermarket on site with a shop which sells English newspapers, a pizzeria, a separate restaurant. The pools are beautiful with two of them heated under a covered recreation area, which includes slides, a steam room and jacuzzi. The sports team arrange football, tennis , basketball, volleyball, table tennis and other family tournaments. At night the shows are fun and the disco is very popular with children and young adults. Parents can enjoy a drink on the terraces as their children enjoy the entertainment on a safe site.

About mike hatch

We purchased the property in Frejus after many years of renting ourselves, and our 3 children wanting to return year after year. We chose this site because it is perfect for all ages, and the area has all the amenities you could ask for, including spacious and safe sandy beaches. With my wife being a teacher, and myself being a Headteacher for more than 20 years we have been able to enjoy many weeks each year in the area.

mike hatch purchased this mobile home in 2006

Why mike hatch chose Esterel - Fayence

At the time of purchase you could choose your plot. It is one of the most spacious, in a quiet area, with plenty of tree cover to keep it cool. The mobile home is one of the best makes and it was spacious. We added the terrace as we knew guests would want to be outside. We are constantly updating furnishings with new flooring and garden furniture in 2015.

Guestbook comments from the owner

May 2014Alan and Christine from Timperley Cheshire said they love the peace and quiet in such a beautiful and restful environment. 'Our 2 year old grandson loved the pools and he started to learn to swim. We will be back.'

August 2014Graham and Sophie from Blackpool said 'We were really pleased with the van, it was very well equipped. People were envious of me having a washing machine! The teenage children loved everything about it and in particular the disco and night life. They made plenty of new friends from all over the world.'

April 2015. It was perfect for us. It was much bigger than we expected. We will be back.

May 2015. We loved everything about the home and the site. We visited Cannes, Nice, Monaco (where they were preparing for the Grand Prix), St Tropez via the ferry. A great base to see a beautiful part of the world.

June 2015. The children spent most of the days in the pools. There was plenty to do on the site. The restaurants on the sea front were good value.

July 2015. We hired a car, but we could have spent the full two weeks on the site. When we did eventually get to the close, clean and safe beaches we snorkelled and the older children went on a jet ski.

August 2015. My girls didn't want to leave. They were upset eating their final breakfast on the lovely balcony.

September 2015. Thanks Mike for a superb holiday in one of the most beautiful areas of the world.

April 2016. we had a great time. the van was lovely and the children loved the heated pools,

June 2016. I would like to buy your van please. its in such a great spacious location and the kids loved it.

July 2016. We came to see the area but we hardly moved off the site. The children loved the water slides.

September 2016 . We had a lovely time in such a beautiful area. thanks for all the suggestions. We loved the speedy boat ride to St Tropez.

April 2017. The children loved the pools, especially the ones with the slides.We enjoyed riding the bikes.

April 2017. This is our 4th time at Mike and Vivs van. We have booked for next year already. They keep the van in great condition and each time we come there is something new.

Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

There are many beaches in the area, with St Raphael and Frejus 10 minutes away when the roads are clear. St Tropez can be accessed by boat from St Raphael, or St Maxime in the summer. The roads are very busy in July and August. The famous corniche is well worth the drive following the coastal path all the way to Monte Carlo, or even through to Italy. There are many pretty inland villages worth a trip by car. Port Frejus is worth an evening visit, and Port Grimmaud is further but worth a visit.

Travel:

It is very useful to have a car, but there are buses which wait outside the site. Many visitors do not leave the site as there is so much to do. Nice Airport is 40 minutes away, with Marseille about 90 minutes. The TGV goes to St Raphael from Paris, and a new route from London to Avignon and on to St. Raphael is available, check TGV and SNCF sites. The car or a train is a possibility, but the journey from Calais on the peage (paid motorways) is 10 to 12 hours.

Distances:

The site is 3 miles from the sandy beaches of St Raphael and Frejus. 25 miles form Cannes, and 40 miles form Nice. We are 16 miles from St Maxime where you can catch a regular boat to St Tropez. The golf at Valescure is 5 miles away and the beautiful bay of Agay is a further 2 miles. The train station at St Raphael is 4 miles.

Further Details:

The local Carrefour, the equivalent to Tesco is 3 miles away, where you can find many other shopping outlets. The traditional markets are found in all the local areas. Restaurants are available on the camp site, which is reasonable, there is also a snack bar and pizza bar, but the promenade of Frejus and St Raphael are the most popular eating places. We like Roma on the Frejus/St Raphael border, where in the height of summer you will often hear a group playing nearby. Port Frejus is not far away, where many restaurants specialising in sea food can be found. The fireworks at 10am are a bonus at week ends. The reception area is open 24 hours and is very helpful. The camp site shops are good and the bread and croissants from the supermarket are popular in the morning. We have 2 bikes which you can use to ride if you do not fancy the 10 minute walk from the mobile home (please check the brakes etc before using the bicycle, and do not use it on the main roads). Banks can be found in the Roman town of Frejus, and ATM's are available. There is an Aqua park in Frejus by the beach ( 3 miles), and hire of pedalos, canoes can be found on the beaches. You can also hire the speed boats for water skiing or paragliding. We would recommend a boat trip to St Tropez from either St Raphael or St Maxime. Walking along the sea front of Nice and Cannes are always a great experience, and a night at the Hippodrome in between Cannes and Nice for pony and trap racing is good fun. A good meal can be bought in the restaurant with lovely views out to the sea across the race circuit. Entrance is about £5. Shopping is available in many areas but there is a Gallery Laffayette in Nice at Cap 2000, next to the airport. If you would like to venture further afield the Gorge de Verdon ( 90 minutes), which is inland, is impressive, or you could travel an hour into Italy, through Monaco and the Victorian style town of Menton for the Italian market at Ventimiglia, or a little further to St Remo.

Lovely mobile home for a family holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here at Easter for the last three years. The mobile home is delightful, well maintained, spotless and well equipped. The owners are so welcoming and friendly. The mobile home is set in the calm of the forest very close to one swimming pool and easy walking distance of another. The campsite has a lot to do for the children, pools, playground and a packed programme of entertainment. The staff are very friendly. You can drive easily to the lovely beach and port in Frejus and the parking is free. A lovely place for a sunny, relaxing family holiday.

Very comfortable and well equipped holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday. Mike and Viv were brilliant hosts and nothing was too much trouble. The mobile home was specious and on a large quiet plot. We appreciated the extras like a second fridge and small freezer. There was plenty of outdoor furniture and the wooden deck was a lovely place to eat. The double bedroom had plenty of space and a very comfy bed.

The site itself lived up to the photos with six swimming pools available. It was a nice change to know everything was included apart from wifi charges. Although we did not have children with us it was a great place for a family holiday. The staff on reception were great and very helpful. We are sure we will go back some time.

June 2016

  • 5 of 5

I cannot recomend this mobile enough. Mike and Viv are such easy and helpful people to deal with. The mobile is extremely comfortable and clean. It is in a great location in terms of the campsite, being close to both ends of the park. It is also well shaded and away from the busier routes through the site. This made it great for the kids to be able to play outside. The mobile comes into it's own with all the little extra's like the second fridge and the freezer, washing machine and BBQ. Best of all was the covered deck which was great. We were able to have breakfast/lunch outside whilst being able to keep the little people out of the sun. There is great pride taken in this mobile, and you can see where things are constantly updated and improved by the owners.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your comments. Providing happy holidays for families like yours makes it worth all the work and care we put into the mobile home for friends, family and guests. We do try to provide the extras we know families benefit from, which other traditional camping companies do not offer.

Lovely Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Brilliant property on a fantastic family site. Had everything you could possibly need and the owners were an absolute pleasure to deal with. Plenty to do on site with good facilities - sports, entertainment, kids club, playground and pools. More to do in Frejus too with loads of activities, beaches, shops and restaurants. Property was perfect with plenty of home comforts and we really enjoyed our stay, would love to go back again!

Amazing family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have been to this fantastic caravan for the last 4 years because it is such a wonderful family holiday spot. The van itself is lovely for our family of 4 and our daughters have enjoyed every aspect of the facilities on site, especially the swimming pools and splash park. We enjoyed venturing out to the beaches close by and swimming in the safe seas. The campsite restaurant serves fantastic food and is very family friendly.

Wonderful Holiday Venue

  • 5 of 5

Great location and adored by our grandchildren. The restaurant at La Palmerie was loved by us all and reasonable prices. We rented the owners house as well as the caravan for all our family as they are only 8km apart. Owners lovely,genuine and helpful people, both properties spotlessly clean and pristine condition. Will definitely stay again and already booked for next year.
