A place worth visiting
We had a relaxing and sunny two weeks holiday in st maxime on Jun/2014.
Property – As advertised and mentioned by others the apartment is spacious and equipped with all the amenities one would need (except patio grill). No noise caused by neighbors or from outside area. Pool area is located appr 150m from the apartment and is also safeguarded as well as very clean and well maintained. If pool plays an important role for you daily activities you could check the maintenance breaks,beforehand e.g. during our two weeks stay the pool was closed for two consecutive days during the second week (not an issue for us as there are lot of other activities also to do ; )
What to do - visited in couple of rose vineyards, and nearby villages and towns of which Grimaud was maybe the most unforgettable. Excursions arranged by Bateuaxverts were also nice even though we were not fully able to understand the sightseeing announcement (only in French) but enjoyed the sunny weather and cruising on the sea. Also the roadside traffic bit surprised us (both A8 and coastal roads) and you just need to know when/where it is possible to drive without constant traffic jams.
Thanks for those comments. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay like all other guests before. There is no barbecue due to the proximity of the pinewood (safety reason). We tried an electrical one, but it was impossible to maintain it clean, ready to be used by guests, so we gave up.
The pool needs some maintenance from time to time and this is not predictable. This is the "price to pay" in summer time, when it is hot in order to maintain the water clean.
The car traffic in Sainte-Maxime area is rather heavy in July-August, but it is possible to manage with it and avoid it. Fortunately, it does not affect the peace of the residence which is very quiet due to the absence of traffic nearby and to the size of the large pinewood.
We wish to more guests to enjoy our property in the future !
Our two week summer holiday
We had a wonderful holiday at "Des Pins Bleus". We found the villa very clean through-out and all the things we needed were there. We found eating out quite expensive so we cooked and ate on the patio area which was lovely. The swimming pool was extremely well looked after and even at busier times a sun-lounger was always available. We felt very safe and secure at all times and as a key was needed to enter and exit the pool area felt it was a very safe place for children even though ours were older.
The walk to the town centre was do-able but on a hot day a fair walk there and back, it was easier to walk down in the evening when it was cooler. The walk at the beginning of the holiday was ok but towards the end of the holiday got a bit tiring.
The only thing that spoilt our holiday was the traffic, the coastal road was very busy and travelling by car anywhere meant sitting in queues that didn't seem to move very quickly. The traffic situation did put us off of travelling anywhere in the car.
Overall a lovely area and a lovely villa and pool, but if we were to come back to this area we would not come back in peak holiday season.
We are happy that our guests enjoyed our property. Definitely July and August are a busy time on the Riviera. To visit Saint-Tropez for example, the best way at that time of the year is to use the boats (shuttles) which operate till late in the evening, allowing visitors to have dinner in Sainte-Maxime.
The ideal holiday apartment for families
In June 2011 we spent 2 wonderful weeks with our children (11 to 18 years old) at the apartment and we strongly recommend it to other families with young children or with teenies. The apartment is well-maintained, clean and spacious and has all the facilities you need for a comfortable and relaxed holiday. The balcony faces a very nice and quiet pine-wood. We enjoyed the pool (extremely clean) and the short ride to the nice beach "La Nartelle" (max. 15 min. by car). To the centre of St. Maxime it is only a 20 minutes walk - you find there many shops, restaurants and cafés. St. Maxime is a good starting point for several trips, either along the coast (Nice, Cannes, St. Tropez) or to the lovely villages among the hills (Grimaud, La Garde-Freinet, Borme-les-Mimosas). By the way, to go to St. Tropez you can take the ferry-boat or you can go by bus, which is really a cheap alternative.
Our guests are our best ambassadors ! We are happy that all the efforts put in maintening ou property at a high level result in our guests satisfaction. JM Dubois
Great appartment, great owner.
We were in France in the beginning of March, temperature wise it is not the greatest but the hospitality on the Cote d'azur and the friendlyness of the people without the hordes of tourists is tremendous. The appartment is one of the nicest weve rented over the years, everything you could want is provided by the owner and his rep Sandrine was very friendly and efficient. If it wasnt for them our vacation would have been ordinary.
The location is close to all the major supermarkets and big stores, the shore is within walking distance but quite a way.the closeness of St-Tropez, Cannes, Fréjus, Monaco, Nice and Menton is made easier by the train in Fréjus, you dont have to fight trafic all the time.
The cleanliness and space of the appartment is what makes it stand out, you have three bedrooms, a whole family can stay here easily.
I would recommend this property to anyone who wants to be in a complex peacefull and secure complex with all the amenities. If we come back to the Cote d'azur, this is the place were we will stay.
We are always happy when we make our guests happy. It's true that it's a perfect place to stay and an excellent alternative to a house rental (not the same budget...).
Excellent séjour à Sainte-Maxime
Fin Août-début septembre, nos vacances se sont passées dans le plus grand bonheur de tous, adultes et enfants, appart. très bien situé, tranquille et bien équipé. A proximité: un magasin bio (super). Espérons pouvoir y retourner bientôt.
Merci au propriétaire pour sa gentillesse.
Merci pour ce message qui nous va droit au coeur. Nous sommes heureux que nos efforts soient appréciés et permettent à nos hôtes de passer d'agréables séjours dans notre appartement.
Our first trip to the Cote d'Azur.
We have just returned from this lovely apartment in St.Maxime and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. We thought the South of France was beautiful and the apartment was just perfect and was like 'home from home'. The apartment is very spacious with plenty of room for six people. The property is clean and well maintained, it is also very tastefully decorated. It has every 'mod con' for anyone who wants to self cater rather than eat out. The pool area is also nice and clean with enough sun loungers for guests, even though we were there in high season we never struggled to get a spot round the pool. The path down to the pool is quite steep with steps so probably unsuitable for the elderly or people with walking disabilities. But apart from that the apartment is everything you could want for a perfect holiday, the only thing wrong with our holiday was it wasn't long enough!!! We would definately go back, and St. Maxime resort is a short stroll away with plenty of nice restaurants and bars ( to suit all budgets). A great time was had by all. Thankyou.
It's nice to read that all efforts put in offering top quality rental are fruitful and make a stay really enjoyable for a family. Our aim is definitely to make our guests happy. Ready for next time ! And thanks a lot !
Ideally situated in Sainte Maxime, amongst hilly surroundings on the Gulf of Saint Tropez. It is at an easy 15 minute walk to town centre, marina and beaches (over 6 km of fine sandy beaches). A real haven of peace for restful holidays, a relaxing break on the Côte d’Azur at any time of the year. You will enjoy the tranquillity of this unique and upscale residence (a quality of life signed MGM real estate). Superb apartment for 6 (3 berooms including 1 en-suirte bedroom) with swimming-pool and large pine-wood (28 000 sq meters). Very quiet and still close to all attractions. Easy access to grocery shopping (with or without car). Numerous attractions for kids and older.
Golf: The property is in an excellent position, if you are looking for a base to enjoy a week of golf..The local golf course in Sainte Maxime is within 2 km. Golf de Beauvallon 4 km, Roquebrune, Gassin Golf Country Club, Cap Esterel and many other courses are within easy access.
