Flexible arrival/departure days may be possible.
Villa Maxime is a stunning property standing in an elevated position with views to the sea beyond. The domaine is 'uber' exclusive and such is the location that one of the most well-known rock stars has a holiday villa not far from Villa Maxime.
The villa nestles in a peaceful wooded valley, within a private and secure domaine, located above the coastal road leading to the glamorous resorts of St Maxime and St Tropez. It is just a short walk to the beautiful "La Nartelle plage" (approx 1km), a long, sandy beach with seaside activities (paragliding, water skiing, jet ski, canoeing etc), numerous restaurants, bars and a convenience store. To the west, a short drive away (approx 3km) is St Maxime town centre and marina, full of quaint side streets, cafés, interesting boutiques and lively food markets. St Tropez is easily accessible via ferry which runs every 20 minutes from St Maxime.
The property has amazing sporting facilities and consists of two separate houses. The 'Grande Maison' and 'Maison d'Amis'.
'Grande Maison' is a 300m2 property with air-conditioning, tastefully furnished in contemporary style and decorated with some panache. With spacious living accommodation, a sweeping balcony from the living room and kitchen gives plenty of space to relax and eat al fresco under the covered terrace and enjoy the panoramic views.
The second property, a 'Maison d'Amis'
Approx 150m2 which is the original property on the site. The house has the original kitchen and bedroom on the ground floor and the 2 upstairs bedrooms and shared bathroom have been renovated, and is ideal for staff travelling with a family or with a group of teenagers who would love some independence, but would still remain in close proximity to their family and would enjoy the dedicated games room with baby foot, ping pong, a darts board, rowing and spinning machines.
The extensive, well maintained grounds are full of Mediterranean plants and trees. On the lower level there is a full size floodlit tennis court (the access is a little un-even) with artificial grass which has a basket ball hoop and 2 goals for energetic youngsters!
The large 15m long swimming pool is alarmed and on the upper terrace there is a second 6m x 1.5m pool with a Jacuzzi feature and a "contra current" swimming jet - ideal for serious swimmers.
Villa Maxime is ideally suited for a large family or group of friends wanting a very special holiday in an exclusive location.

The villa is superb. The number of bathrooms was fantastic and despite the fact that there were so many people the house never seemed rushed so in terms of amenities it was great. Often when we arrive at villas we find that kitchen utensils are very sparse. This was not the case here at all and was a very pleasant surprise. The location was exceptional. I stayed in Frejus last year in a very nice villa but it was half a mile down a private road which resembled a dirt track and it was impossible to get anywhere without driving. The location that you have is superb and the panoramic views never ceased to amaze. South France Villas Client, August 2018
……villa was a huge success,we all had a wonderful time and enjoyed all that Villa Maxime had to offer…… On the night of our arrival we all had dinner at ‘La Voile’, ……and we had a super evening. On Saturday night we dined at Ste Maxime at ‘La Reserve’ - even better meal - excellent. On the Monday we took the boat to St Tropez and after a wander round, we had a superb lunch at ‘La Ponche’ where I had the best oysters I've ever eaten. All these trips were on your recommendation, thank you SO much.We loved the pool, the garden with the olive tree and all the oleanders, the terrace with the big table and wonderful umbrella where we had our meals. The kitchen worked really well, two of our family have been professional chefs and they thought it was great. 2 dishwashers - a stroke of genius. The lounge area was extremely comfortable and we enjoyed the Euro football - some more than others, but they caught some of Wimbledon, so that worked really well. Mary, June 2016, From the House Book
Thanks for organising the holiday. The villa was lovely and a great success. We all thought it was pretty much perfect. Internet coverage is a little unreliable apart from near the front door. I guess air conditioning in all the bedrooms, but the kids slept well with the fan. Your cleaner is one of the nicest people I have ever met! Please send her my regards,Family Clifford, UK, South France Villas, August 2015
We had a fantastic family holiday in your wonderful Villa. The tennis court was a real bonus and we loved playing tennis morning and evening every day. Hopefully we will return again one day! Gary and Susan, June/July 2014
