Why Stephanie Farrimond, villa manager chose Les Issambres
The view is the best in the South of France. You are within striking distance of the glamour of St Tropez if that is what you want, but the hillside is peaceful and the local village is a delight. The sea is calm and the sandy beaches are perfect for children, the local food nearby is first class.
What makes this Villa unique
Peace, privacy, room for two families and friends, really good restaurants nearby and the glamour of St Tropez when you are in the mood. Guest comments are below: 'William G, a Guest said: Fantastic week on the Cote d'Azur Date of Stay 12 September 2015 The view from the terrace at Gulfstream is impossible to beat. The villa is about ten minutes into the hills above the Med and in a very quiet area. It's fifteen minutes to restaurants and the small town of Les Issambres. The villa is well kitted out with a large kitchen/living area, upper and lower terraces and a lovely pool looking out over the sea. The caretaker bought extra baby kit for us and could not have been more helpful. A great week

wonderful location and view
Easy to find with navigation system, but more or less only reachable by car. Up on the hill over-viewing the bay of Less Issambres with view to Saint Tropez.
The villa can really hold 10 people and the rooms are spacious (except one) and all the appliances were working.
The description is correct.
It is not showing that the villa has aged, so appliances show their age. We experienced a sewer odor, especially on the upper floor that wouldn't go away. No problem, if you spend most of your time outside! The pool equipment is of age, especially the umbrellas. The pool cleaning would have been helpful after the storm we experienced, but no-one showed up. However, the manual tools were there, so we were able to manage.
We had a good time and enjoyed our wine tasting tour of the area!
Villa did everything it said on the tin. The pool was amazing, and the view was to die for, day and night. The house keeper, Khadra, was very friendly and helpful. We were a party of 11, ranging from 1 to 78 years old, all of whom had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday.
Beautiful Property in a Stunning Location
We have just returned from a wonderful week in this lovely villa. We were a multigenerational group of 9 ranging in age from 4 to 65 and without exception everyone had a good time. There is plenty of space both inside and out so we never felt 'on top of each other' and when we weren't swimming, playing boule or table tennis it was a treat to just sit and look at the view.
Dear Carolyn, you were great guests. Come back and stay anytime.
Best wishes Andrew
Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure to have you as a guest and we hope you will come and stay at Gulfstream again!
Great views and comfortable accomodation
We were a family group of six adults and three children under 8. We stayed at a nearby villa in 2015 so knew the area fairly well, in particular where to shop for the best baguettes and pastries! Although the villa is high up in the hillside it is only about five minutes drive to the nearest shop and restaurants and about 10 minutes to the centre of town. The villa is very well equipped with comfortable sleeping accommodation and plenty of bathrooms and other facilities. The air conditioning in the bedrooms was very welcome but it would have been nice to have it in the lounge area also as that got very hot and stuffy at times.
The pool area is great and has lovely views over the bay. Probably our favourite thing about the villa was the amount of sun it got in the evening when enjoying a glass of chilled rose!
Caroline the villa manager in France was very friendly and helpful and did a great job when we had a minor power supply issue during our stay. Our daughter in law also left an earring in the villa which Caroline found during the changeover clean and she is in the process of returning it to us, Caroline is a star!
It was a great holiday in a perfect location and hopefully we will return in the future.
Stayed August 2017
Thank you very much for this lovely review. We were delighted that you had such a great time at the villa. We sincerely hope that you will come back to stay in the future.

Unbeatable views, brilliant poolside chat and chill bar, great holiday
We were 12 adults and kids who had a superb time at Gulf Stream Villa.
We took the Bateau Verte to St Tropez and shopped till we dropped.
We visited the local markets and bought Provençal food and lavender products.
The kids loved the pool and we ate each evening on the upper patio overlooking the Gulf of St Tropez watching the sun set. It was so calming.
We also loved the beaches, Les Issambres beach is sandy and calm, Nartelle beach has so many great beach restaurants and our favourite was Le Club 44, which is better than cinquante cinq on Pampelonne.
