The house is tucked away within a small residence to the west of Ste Maxime. It is very quiet with its own parking space for one car outside the property. The house consists of 2 bedrooms, one with a double bed the other with truckle beds ie one single bed with a single bed that pulls out beneath it. These put together make good sleeping arrangements for both children or adults. Both bedrooms have ample cupboard space. There is a recently refurbished bathroom with shower. Downstairs is an open plan kitchen/diner/sitting room. There is also a separate downstairs loo with a washing machine, microwave and fridge freezer. The kitchen has a dishwasher, cooker, small fridge, and oven. It is extremely well equipped with everything you will need to cook. There is a dining table inside to sit 4 very comfortably. There is a flat screen television and DVD player and a CD player. It has a very comfortable L shaped sofa. Outside on the beautiful terrace is a table around a banquette, adequate to sit up to 6 people. The terrace has ample room to put out 3 lounge chairs. There is an outside shower [cold water!] to cool yourselves down! The terrace is gated for good security. The house is close to the communal swimming pool which is beautifully kept. It is a large pool and perfect to do those lengths in the morning! Just outside the gated entrance to Bastide de Guerrevieille is a petanque area where you can have a go or watch others play the quintessential French game!

About Lisa Aitken
This has been a second home to me for the last 15 years. I have spent a great deal of time there. The house means a great deal to me and I have looked after it and treasure it very much. I have to spend more time now in the UK which has meant that I cannot get down to France as much. I run a business with my husband Charles offering yurt stays and teaching woodland craft. We live in Sussex and do get down to the house in the summer with his children who have been coming down since they were babies.
Lisa Aitken purchased this Cottage in 2001
Why Lisa Aitken chose Sainte-Maxime
This house has been treasured and cared for since I purchased it in 2001. It is quiet and peaceful and I have done many renovations since owning it. I love my house and I believe that you will too. Everyone that has stayed or visited, adore it. If you are coming as a couple to get away from everything or as a family to enjoy some special days with your children, this is a wonderful place to come.
What makes this Cottage unique
Very peaceful and very well equipped with all that you will need for a perfect restful holiday.

Wonderful, cozy home. We loved and so will you.
Great property, cozy, nice view. Contained in its own little domain so we felt very safe as well.
Lisa's house is lovely and very well decorated, totally consistent with the description.
We spent great holidays in that house enjoying the terrace, the view and the surroundings : the beach is very closeby, the swimming pool is very clean and big enough to swim and to play with the kids. The residence atmosphere is very friendly and secure with nice people and polite families.
Lovely character property
We spent two weeks here and absolutely loved it. The terrace is really big and has plenty of shade throughout the day and space to sunbathe. The shared pool is really big, clean and easily accessible without it being too close with regards to noise. Our favourite beach was at the end of the long winding road and had lovely sand and clear waters. The children really enjoyed the stay and felt at home. I would recommend staying here.
Heerlijk romantisch huisje met veel privacy in geweldige omgeving: echt even ‘away from it all’
Huisje ligt lekker rustig in een private omgeving met meer vakantiewoningen, die ook gebruik maken van het gedeelde zwembad. Het huisje zelf is compact (echt max 2 volwassen en 2 kinderen) en sfeervol ingericht. Prachtig uitzicht op zee en de bergen. Veel privacy en rust.
Vriendelijke buren (ouder Frans echtpaar) die hun parkeerplaats twee weken wilden ruilen: een bredere auto kan namelijk niet goed naar bekenden, omdat het paadje - aan beide zijden begroeiing- te smal is om zonder krasjes beneden te komen.
Genoeg servies, kookgerei, bestek etc voorhanden, een vaatwasser en wasmachine, twee koelkasten met vriesgedeelte, twee toiletten (‘pipi-room’ beneden en een boven in de badkamer) en overal ventilators aan het plafond.
De tuin is de beste plek van het huis: groot terras met aantal fijne zithoekjes. Eettafelhoek, twee ligbedden, een zitzak designer stoelen onder een schaduw biedende moerbei en een romantisch rond tafeltje voor een Frans ontbijt onder diezelfde moerbei.
Kortom alle ingrediënten voor een heerlijk ontspannen poosje away from it all aan de Franse cote d’azur met de Middellandse zee en het gezellige dorpje Sainte-Maxime op een steenworp afstand.
Location saisonnière avec beaucoup de cachet.
Location très bien située, conforme à l'annonce et aux photos. Piscine réservée aux résidents très proche du logement sans les nuisances. Parking et plage en bas de la colline ainsi que deux restaurants. Grande terrasse fort agréable avec vue très sympa sans vis à vis. Idéal avec des enfants. A recommander.
Fantastisk terrasse i idylliske omgivelser
Rækkehuset levede til fulde op til vores forventninger og mere til. Særdeles anbefalelsesværdig. Vi tilbragte mange timer på terrassen, hvor vi nød omgivelserne.
Ste Maxime is itself a very pretty town, with pretty cobbled streets, lots of shops and restaurants. You will find everything you need in town and are spoiled for choice with the range of food shops and markets. There is an antique market that takes place every Wednesday at the port. Ste Maxime is located close by to St Tropez, a playground for the rich and famous, stepped in history and a wonderful place to visit. A short ferry ride from Ste Maxime to St Tropez is definitely worth it, especially during the season! You can stroll around the pretty cobbled streets, window shop, and watch the world go by from one of the many bars and open restaurants.
East of St Tropez you will find the amazing St Tropez beaches, a long stretch of beach that has various named sections where you will find the well known beach clubs of Club 55 and Nikki Beach. If you are little more adventurous, you can find more secluded beaches but these take a little more planning, a longer walk, but are well worth discovering.
Every Sunday there is a fantastic Antiques market that takes place just outside Grimaud. Well worth a visit! Grimaud itself is charming, a typical old town built on a hill with the 13th century castle.
