About the Owner

I am no newcomer to the rental business and have been working in the holiday rental market in the Saint Tropez area for the last 30 years. Now that I no longer work full time, I enjoy taking pride in my own rental property and am constantly updating the equipment and seeking to improve my guest's experience. Whilst I respect my client's privacy during their stay, I can reassure them that I am only 10 minutes away and will be around to greet them, offer advice and help where required. I have used owners direct for five years now and have been delighted with the response and have met some lovely people. I hope that 2017 will be as successful.

This brand new flat in Sainte Maxime is a real treat. Everything is how it’s described on the Owners Direct website and we thoroughly enjoyed our 9 day stay. We stayed over the Christmas period and were delighted with the layout and fittings of the flat, it really suited my elderly Mother too. We were able to have lunch on the balcony five times, and chose to have Christmas lunch at an excellent fish restaurant nearby. We prefer not to hire cars when we go away - I’m happy to get the croissants every morning especially if I can walk by the sea to get them, (the boulangerie was open every day). My partner does the cooking and was very happy with the first class kitchen appliances, I was really happy with the hi-speed internet. It was great a big thank you to Sian for a warm welcome and to Derek for collecting us and returning us to Nice airport effortlessly. My mother didn't want to come home !

We found this property delightful. It's position,furnishings and layout were 1st class.

  • 5 of 5

The owner was extremely helpful.Mrs Little met us and explained how everything worked,the better restaurants etc.

The apartment is in easy walking distance of the Old Town and very close to the sea front.

We loved St. Maxime and the water bus to St. Tropez in particular.

Our best meal was at La Reserve ,but as the name implies, reservations are essential.

We have no doubts about recommending this owner,this property and the resort.

Top Quality Apartment Close to Town

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is modern, spacious and extremely well appointed. Quality furnishings, comfortable and the owner has thought of everything you could possibly need for an enjoyable holiday. 50 m to nearest beach and 10 mins (slow) walk from town centre, yet quiet location on side street.

Excellent find

  • 5 of 5

Immaculate and well equipped apartment in a very good location . Nice touches ...basic items in cupboard saved visit to shop ! Kitchen area very well equipped for proper cooking. Three double bedrooms suited our group of friends .

Lovely being able to walk to town centre in a few minutes leaving car in the garage. Highly recommended .

Would have liked French TV instead of Sky ... But hey I understand ! Another bonus for those of us trying to travel light would be beach towels . Overall, one of the most comfortable apartments we have rented in the area

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive comments. I do try to think of everything and welcome any suggestions for improvement. I now realize that there are two things I should add to my information letter so that clients are better informed; 1/ We do have French TV, (I just assumed you would want English TV channels so did not think to mention it.) 2/ I do not automatically provide beach towels However , I do keep a set on the top shelf of the wardrobe which I can lend to clients (travelling by plane with limited luggage space) who request them.

Very comfortable and well appointed apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 weeks and Sian made us very welcome from the start. The apartment was spotless and we also had replacement towels and sheets on the second week. This is in a great location which is easily walkable to all the restuartants and beaches in town. We were a family of 6 ranging from 14 years old to 82 years old so this property and it's location suits all ages. Would definately stay here again when in the South of France.

Thanks Sian

Modern Apartment, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped appartment with nice modern kitchen. Location was great, just a few minutes walk from Ste.Maxime and the beach. Sian was very welcoming and made it clear she was near by if we had any problems. Only negative is the garage parking is quite small so was difficult to get in and out. However as you are so close to everything you don't really need to use your car. Would book again!

From the Owner

The town is growing in popularity and new small developments close to the sea and town centre are hard to come by. As soon as New Caprica came on the market I could not miss the opportunity so I decided to purchase my future retirement home ten years early. With a bit of luck and some good rentals it will have paid for itself by the time I get round to putting my feet up ! If, like me, you love France,enjoy a day in the sun followed by a meal in a good restaurant and a few glasses of wine with no driving to worry about, this could be the perfect holiday destination for you !

From the Owner

What a super apartment, 4 of us stayed here earlier this month, equipped with everything you need, washing machine for me, spacious, air con, fab patio, easy to use barbi, just wonderful. All amenities within very easy walking distance, most delicious almond croissants at local bakery, forget any calorie counting. Small supermarket around the corner, but about 20 minutes across town ,easily located, there is a large Carrefour, we shopped there, also there is an undercover provencal market in town, if you do not buy anything, just go to have a look. St Tropez very easy to reach, if you want to go on the ferry, fine, but the bus is only 2 euros. St Maxime is just lovely; Thank you Paul Smith for these comments
