About Patsy Politoff

I am an interior designer - a French national who splits her year between living in Hertfordshire and Provence. 'Chez Leyla' is very dear to me as it was a family home for many years before we decided to enter the holiday rental business! I have many happy memories of summer holidays spent there, and I hope that renters will enjoy their stay there just as much.

Why Patsy Politoff chose St Tropez region

This property is so well located for all the beaches, bars and restaurants and is within walking distance to all the shops.

What makes this villa unique

15kg washing mashing, tumble drier, second bathroom and bedroom located downstairs in the garage area. Several seating areas, making a very relaxing villa.

It was like staying in a boutique hotel - absolutely fantastic time had by all. Hope to return next year! (Lucy and Rahman)

We enjoyed your villa very much. The beer and wine on arrival was much appreciated. We have never stayed in a house where so many little things have been provided - which were very welcome. We think you thought of everything! Great. (Martin, Charly, Mike, Margaret, Hannah and James)

Super Villa, ideal location and a wonderful welcom

  • 5 of 5

Chez Leyla is a wonderful place to stay, the villa has everything you need for a perfect holiday and the garden and pool area is just what you need on hot sunny days. There are lots of things to do near by , 10 minutes walk and your in the town of St Maxime, with its wonderful food market, restaurants and bars or you can hop on a boat to St Tropez. Also there are many other places to explore which are not too far away. We have been coming to Chez Leyla for 4 years and hope to return again .Patsy is very helpful and kind and always leaves lots of lovely goodies when we arrive. We thoroughly recommend Chez Leyla to anybody.

Super Villa, ideal location and wonderful reception

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our weeks holiday was perfect, from our warm welcome from Patsy and Leah, to the never ending thoughtfulness of what is needed to make your stay extra special.

Patsy obviously want to give you the best review but in doing so worry at letting everyone else know the secret of Chez Layla!!

great villa

  • 5 of 5

We received a great reception from the owner. The villa was perfect in every way, clean and very well maintained, with many extras that would be hard to match anywhere else eg a stocked fridge and fruit bowl together with a selection of wines and beers and ample toiletries and towels. All of this really helped to make our holiday. We had a most wonderful time. Would love to return and would thoroughly recommend to anybody.

Great location, great host

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed this property. Host met us on arrival with a lovely welcome pack. There was even a snack in the fridge which was very welcome after a days travelling.

Location is perfect. Distance to walk to the centre took less than 10 minutes. Bit of a hill on the way back but a gentle one. No need to take the car.

Being just on the start of summer there are lots of sunny spots to sit and just enjoy the ambience.

Highly recommended
