Captivating view, fantastic owners

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Vila Zen in July 2014 for almost two weeks.

From the moment we entered through the gates and first saw the captivating view of the gulf we knew that it would be a great time. We love to travel and have been to some beautiful places, but this is truly a fantastic place created by the owners.

The house was immaculate and beautiful with an open floor plan and contemporary décor with large panoramic windows letting in the view, and outdoor pool, living and dining areas flowing seamlessly.

Great house keeping, owners arranged for personal trainer to come to the multiple times throughout our stay and they had the best retaurant and beach recommendations. Extremey friendly and trustworhy.

Sitting on the terrace after dinner and watching the distant lights of St Tropez and the many yachts glittering on the gulf in the dark is amazing, and even though Ste Maxime and St Tropez is only 15-20 minutes away we ended up cooking and eating at home almost every night (the kitchen is fully equipped for gourmet cooking and there is a barbecue on the terrace).

Our many thanks to the owners for sharing this beautiful villa with us, taking care of us and for being such generous hosts!

Special interest holidays:

We can also arrange boat hire for either a day visit to Pampelonne, the Porquerelles Islands or maybe Cannes, and stay overnight on the boat near the Islands in the Bay of Cannes.

Full details on request.

Walking in the wild Maures Mountains nearby along the Pompiers routes gives you an air of total isolation.

These roads are cut out of the hillside to enable the firemen to gain access should there be any forest fires. Only a kilometre or 2 from the coast, it is amazing how isolated you feel being so near the coast.

The famous La Voile sailing week at the end of September is amazing , and we offer a special package for that week including following the racing on a power boat if required and just soaking up the atmosphere of St. Tropez.


The beach at Beauvallon is only 2 minutes away by car or 5 minutes walking.

Fuchsia beach is close by and not usually too busy .

Pampelonne Beach with it's amazing beach bars and the famous Club 55 is only 15 minutes away by car.

St Maxime has several lovely beaches the best of which is La Nartelle on the road to Les Issambres.

The coast from Toulon to the Italian border has some of the most beautiful beaches in France where you can still find isolation,even in the height of summer.


Nice Airport is the main airport in the region and is about 50 minutes away along the A8 Autoroute. Toulon Airport is the closest being only 40 minutes away. Marseille Airport is about 1 hour away.

The villa is exactly 740 miles from Calais Ferry Terminal.

A car is recommended to take advantage of the area. Several car hire companies have offices in the area.

The Eurostar train from London St. Pancras Station will get you to Aix en Provence or Marseille in about 7 hours.


St Tropez town centre is about 3 miles away. this is a 'must visit' town with the harbour boasting some of the most luxurious boats in the world. Shopping and people watching are essentials here

Ste. Maxime about 2 miles with it's numerous restaurants and beaches .

The hilltop village of Grimaud with it's ancient Château is about 3 miles away and is well worth visiting.

Plan de la Tour is a typical Provençal Village if you want to escape the coast , yet is only 15 minutes away.

Further Details:

St Tropez is the main attraction in the area with countless luxurious shops and restaurants in the town and of course the famous Pampelonne Beach nearby.

The markets on Tuesdays and Saturdays are an experience not to miss. Getting there by 9 am. is recommended because of the parking ,or else take the passenger ferry from St Maxime which leaves about every 20 minutes and is much more convenient.

There are numerous shops and supermarkets nearby with ATM machines and we can also provide a pre-arrival stock up of supplies if needed.

The hilltop villages of Gassin and Grimaud are nearby both have superb restaurants and cafés to take coffee or an apero.

Plan de la Tour is a lovely inland Provençal village with cafes and restaurants.

Cannes is about 40 minutes away and should not be missed .

The University City of Aix en Provence can be reached in about an hours driving.

Also it is possible to take the train from Les Arcs ,near the A8 autoroute to most towns and cities in the Provence/Cote d'Azur region, or over to Ventimiglia just over the border in Italy where there is a huge open air market selling everything ,usually cheaper then in France.Many french people shop there regularly

It is possible to rent a boat or jet ski's at various sites nearby.

Scuba Diving in the Gulf or for on the nearby Porquerolles Islands can be arranged easily. The waters around the islands are classed as an underwater Marine Park and fishing is banned in the area, consequently the waters are alive

with large and unusual fish.

Every town and village has a Market day and are worthwhile visiting. The best are at St Tropez on Tuesdays and Saturdays. La Croix Valmer on Sundays and St Maxime on Thursdays.

If fine dining is your forte, there are Michelin starred Restaurants in Ste. Maxime, St Tropez and many close by in the country areas.

The Gorge de Verdon is a huge gorge nearly as deep as the Grand Canyon and is only about 45 minutes inland. You can rent canoes and kayaks there.
