About the property

Apartment in Sainte Maxime, Bay of St Tropez, Cote d'Azur - Perfect Location, In Sought After Residential Area, On The Edge Of The Old Town, No Car Needed

The New Caprica is a brand new luxury complex of just 16 apartments in the lovely coastal town of Sainte Maxime. Ideally situated just metres from the sea and the old port. It blends the traditional and the modern with great style. Sainte Maxime has a family feel and plenty to keep holiday-makers of all ages occupied day and night. Just step out of the door and the view extends across the bay to St Tropez. Perfect for a short stroll along the sea front or through the old town into the bustling centre of Sainte Maxime. All shops and local produce markets within easy reach. Soak up the fabulous atmosphere in the evenings when the town is vibrant offering a superb choice of reasonably priced restaurants, live music and shopping until midnight! A number of ferries and boat trips depart from the old harbour. The winding road to the east via the coast runs along the cliffs which plunge into the crystal clear sea.

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 2018_ will be as successful.

SIAN LITTLE purchased this apartment in 2011

Why SIAN LITTLE chose Sainte-Maxime

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 !

What makes this apartment unique

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

To: Sian Little (

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 !

Beautiful apartment from which to enjoy Ste Maxime

  • 5 of 5

Very well furnished apartment with everything you could need to enjoy your holiday in Ste Maxime. Sian the owner, is a delight to deal with and I thoroughly recommend her apartment. Spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Only a short walk to all the restaurants and bars or the bateaux vert to whisk you off to St Tropez! Great to be able to park your car for a few days and not have to worry about drinking too much rosé.

Great stay in St. Maxime

  • 5 of 5

We loved this three bedroom apartment with one full ensuite and two half ensuites. The apartment was very well furnished especially in the kitchen. Our welcome was very friendly and essential provisions were provided in the fridge! The location was outstanding - so close to St. Tropez but in a wonderful town away from the crowds.

Perfect apartment in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third visit here which in itself speaks volumes! Sian was as always very welcoming and the apartment is always clean and well equipped. You would struggle to find something it didn't have! Very efficient air conditioning too which means even in the height of summer we all slept comfortably.

The location is perfect, walking distance to the beach and town which has a great selection of shops and restaurants. We love Ste Maxime but it is also a great location to explore other places of interest. If you don't want to drive there is a frequent boat service that takes you to St.Tropez and Port Grimaud.

We had a fab family holiday, can't fault this place! Highly recommended!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments and thank you for coming back for a third visit ! Am very happy you had a good holiday . Such a relief to know the aircon is working well again since the unit was replaced. Sainte Maxime continues to rise in popularity and was recently voted the 4th best place in France to own a holiday home... we even beat St Tropez !

Modern and well presented Apartment

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic stay in Sainte-maxime in a lovely, modern appartment, which is 100m from the Ocean and 10 mins walk from the town centre.

The owner is very friendly and helpful.

The only negative during the stay was the Aircon was broken on arrival, taking a week to be repaired.

Great modern apartment close to sea and town center

  • 4 of 5

Great location, being close to water and town center. Very quiet street. Modern apartment with good sized bedrooms and more bathrooms that usual for Europe. Kitchen well-equipped. Nice sized deck. Washing machine was a nice feature. Internet speed was the best we have had in Europe. Unfortunate that when we were there, the AC was not working and in process of being replaced, so really can't rate that important aspect. Owner was easy to work with and very helpful.
