About the property

Villa in Sainte Maxime, Cote D'azur, France - Stunning Location, 2 Minutes walk to the Beach

Villa Sainte Pierre is set back approx. 300m from the Bay of Sainte Tropez off the road to Grimaud. The location is 5 mins walk from the beach.

This spacious villa accommodates 10 - 12 people with bedrooms and living areas located on both floors making the property very suitable for two families or similar combinations. The Villa was completely refurbished in 2009 and it is tastefully decorated and furnished. Bedlinen and towels are provided. There are terraces suitable for dining which overlook the pool area and have views of the bay. This tastefully decorated villa has a large heated pool, gardens, parking, terrace dining over looking the bay which is full of spectacular boats and yachts. Also WI-FI, TV, air conditioning. Off road cycle/walking path to Ste Maxime. Cycle hire available in town. Sainte Maxime is full of restaurants for every taste and for all occasions and you don't need to drive as it is only 1.5km. Port Grimaud in the opposite direct , great to cycle to on market days. Ferry service to St Tropez from Ste Maxime goes every 15 minutes. Monday is the only day where there isn't a local market. These markets are full of fashion, bags, jewels, shoes as well as local produce - great fun. There is a sailing club for windsurfers/Hobie-cats etc.

Excellent! 4.3/5 -

Excellent place near St. Tropez

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights (we planned for 4 but added one more) at villa Piere ( 2 families of 4 adults and 4 children) and we really enjoyed the place from all points of view - location, layout, amenities...

The property managers were very kind and also the emails exchanged with the owner were very friendly. We travelled around quite a lot and discovered a little gem called Port Grimaud a few minutes drive from propriety - thanks Charlotte for a great tip.

We will come back in the future

Great villa for our special family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just had a superb week at Villa Pierre with my adult family. The villa is on a corner site, very private just a short stroll to the beaches and a half hour walk to the centre of Sainte Maxime. We know the area well and picked the villa so driving wasn't essential as the coast road is very busy. We also have bikes and take full advantage of the excellent cycle path along the coast.

The photos, although recently improved, rather understate the size and decor of the villa. It is very tastefully and simply decorated and both the communal areas and bedrooms, particularly downstairs are a great size.

The terrace and pool area were great for 8, maybe a bit tight if more adults than that. There is also a lovely quiet area with dappled shade we used a lot.

The managers responded well to a couple of niggles which needed resolving.

Shame it had to end!

Great Family Holiday

  • 4 of 5

The villa was just as I imagined. Beautiful and spacious in a lovely setting. Five minutes walk from a gorgeous little sandy beach along the promenade between Ste Maxime and Grimaud. The pool and weather were perfect. There were areas of shade to relax in and we were able to eat outside every day.

The promenade walk into the centre of Ste Maxime was arduous during the day because of the length and heat. It took well over 30 minutes. The restaurants and shops in the centre were great and the promenade walk in the evening was stunning and enjoyable. Taking a car into Ste Maxime wasn't an option as the traffic was very heavy.

We did have a few issues on the first day but these were rectified and Charlotte and Mark who were on hand to deal with any problems were a very helpful couple.

We were 9 adults in our family party celebrating my husband's 70th birthday and we had a fantastic holiday.

Pretty villa, deceptively large

  • 4 of 5

Firstly apologies this review is late! We stayed 13th-21st June 2016.

We were a family group: 1 under 1, me and my husband, 2 sets of grandparents and my sister in law.

The villa was perfect for what we wanted; good sized property (bedrooms, 2 reception rooms-we didn't even use the second), well equipped (kitchen utensils, high chairs, travel cot, BBQ), pleasant outdoor terrace overlooking the pool with a nice view.

Charlotte and Mark, the property managers, were really friendly and helpful. We did have a couple of issues whilst we were there but these were dealt with within the week.

One note: You definitely need a rental car (not just for day trips but also to get to the supermarket or boulangerie).

STAY AWAY, Owner doesn't care about guests comfort

  • 1 of 5

The house is nice but it is a little too far to walk to beaches and restaurants etc, especially in the summer sun. However our week was ruined by the air conditioning being broken on the day of our arrival. All we kept being told was that it will be fixed tomorrow and I'll be in touch. We ended up being been therr all week and it never got fixed. We were travelling as a family of 4 with 2 small children and my wife was 3 months pregnant, we would never have booked anywhere without Aircon and have found it very difficult spending the week at around 30degree plus with no reprieve. If the villa had been prepared prior to our arrival and the aircon put on the day before or even earlier in the day it would have been obvious to anyone that it did not work and therefore provisions could have been made to help make our stay more comfortable(ie rent some stand alone aircon units). As it was, it was us who contacted the manager on the Sunday after our arrival to report the issue. I must say the house manager Charlotte & her husband Mark are lovely people and have continually apologised profusely, but they can only work within the remit they are given and apologies do not make up for a week of poor sleep. They did bring some fans mid week but these did not help much as they just blow the hot air around. Then on Wednesday they brought a small cool air fan unit that you put ice in that they had from her parents, and I thank them for this. However if you can not provide the service you have offered, and sold, then you should make alternative provisions available not let paying guests suffer. If you are not able to fix the issue you should offer adequate redress. I have said all week that if it can not be fixed then please let us know and we would go and book into a hotel or try and find alternative accommodation, however, it's always we will be in touch or it will be fixed tomorrow. We will be making a formal complaint to owners direct on our return and we will be seeking adequate compensation through whatever means necessary. Needless to say this has put me off staying in private villas.

Do not give this owner your money, stay somewhere else and do not risk wasting your money on someone who has no concern for your comfort during your stay.

Owner's Response: Thankfully the Air-conditioning unit has been repaired. The repair did take longer than we would have liked to complete. Our Villa Manager Charlotte is very attentive in such situations and did everything she could to assist the guests. This is not something that we have ever experienced before. It is very unfair to suggest that we do not care about our guests comfort and this is the first such negative comment we have received in 7 years.

Great Property in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Party of 6 Adults and 3 year old grandson - perfect accomodation, gave everyone their own space if they wanted it but the living area and kitchen was a great gathering point. Very well equipped , comfy beds and furnishings, quiet location but an easy walk into Sainte Maxime or short drive to Port Grimaud and St Tropez. We had great weather so the pool was well used - well thought out pool, good swimming area but nicely stepped shallow end for toddlers and small kids. Grandson loved it and would give it 5 stars if he could type.

Property layout would suited lots of different guests combinations which makes it a very attractive option. Very helpful house management folk who accomodated out rather odd travelling times dictated by our flights to and from Nice.

Property is probably better than described, it was clean and well maintained only downside was having to leave !!

Thoroughly recommend - we have a holiday home that we rent out ourselves in Edinburgh Scotland and we know when the owners etc make an effort to provide a good holiday experience and this villa certainly came into that category.
