Ste. Maxime townhome description

Our small but charming village apartment is the perfect pied-a-terre for a couple (really not appropriate for small children but we can be flexible depending on age of child) and offers a wonderful and romantic 'home' in the heart of a seaside village. Please read the entire description before writing as most of your questions will be answered herewith.

The main room has a lot of character and light and has been lovingly furnished and cared for. It is not a typical rental house with a mish mash of garage sale furnishings and cheap decor. We have selected high quality accents, a gas Lacanche oven, down comforters, and oversized cotton towels to make the house the kind of place you want to hang out in, rather than just a place to sleep and throw your luggage. If you are looking for a combination of high-quality and self catering, then this is your house.

The house is in the heart of the old village of Ste. Maxime, not far from the church that rings out its symphony of bells each day. From the front door you are seconds from restaurants and cafes, morning croissants and afternoons at the beach. The balcony overlooks the village scene, the ocean is slightly visible and sunsets are picturesque.

Inside, the doors and windows are all double paned and the bedrooms are at the back of the house, making them quieter, but this is a lively village, especially on weekend nights. There are tiled floors and a lovely breeze that passes through the house if you open up the french doors keep it cool in the summertime, and rarely have we even used the air-conditioning.

THE HOUSE IS SMALL, roughly 70 square meters, or 700 square feet, give or take, which is why we recommend it ONLY FOR A COUPLE OR SMALL FAMILY OF 3. The bedrooms are right next to one another, and the bathroom is outside in the hall. NOT ideal for four adults who want some privacy and space while they are snoozing.

(Children under 10 not recommended)

The living area is large and roomy with vaulted ceilings and 4 sets of french doors that allow in the warm sun. Luckily, you'll be living outside most of the time with the village right outside your door.

A walk to the beach takes a few minutes and we have a beach umbrellas, chairs and towels for you to take with you. Or hop on the ferry to the glitz and glamour of St. Tropez. The ferry is just down the road. There is also a casino and plenty of shops and restaurants to entertain you.

There is internet at the house
There is satellite TV with CNN, BBC and Skynews in English
DVD player. Children's and adult DVD's

THERE IS NO PARKING at the house, and NO GARAGE.

There is a Paid Parking lots at the end of the street with reasonable weekly rates. Or street parking in the village and local lots. NO PARKING IS AVAILABLE AT THE HOUSE.

The House is located 19km from the TGV station at St. Raphael. (4h45 from Paris) and a bus from the station brings you to the tourist office in Ste Maxime, only 3 minute walk from the house. There is also a TGV station at Les Arcs which is about 35 km away. From here you would need to arrange a taxi. We are 100 km from Nice and 150 Km from Marseille airports.

We hope you come and call our home, yours, for a little while.

Enjoy your stay!

Owner info

About the owner: We are a family of three and love to travel, but have found a home in Ste. Maxime. This house is truly our 'happy place' where we come to relax, read, sip rose and enjoy the joie de vivre that is the French Riviera. Summer, though crowded is a lot of fun with people from all over the world coming to the region. We enjoy the crowds but it's also easy to escape and we love to explore our favorite nearby villages too.

Why the Owner Chose Ste. Maxime:
We chose this home because of its charm and location. Because of its convenient location in the center of Ste. Maxime (near the church) we sometimes spend our entire vacation without ever getting in a car. The bus station is close by, and taxis can whisk you to the train station, just 17km away in San Rafael. The home is well equipped and comfortable too. Outside the door, the vibrant village buzzes with activity.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Not needing a car is key. Walk to dinner, beaches, bus station, and no hassle with parking, which is a hassle. There are 3 car rental agencies in the village if you want to plan a day trip. Ste Maxime hosts concerts and other evening activities in the summer fun for the whole family.
