Not quite what I had hoped.
The house did not quite fill the criteria of 2 families for our party. We were 2 adults and 2 children per family. The kids rooms were one double and one twin bed. Most kids do not want to share a bed with their sibling, so the 4th child slept on the floor in our bedroom because the sofa bed was uncomfortable.
The walk down into town was closer to 20 minutes, and longer to get back.
Other than that we had a nice holiday.
What a find!
From the moment we pulled onto the drive we knew we were going to have a great holiday. We were met by Anne-Marie who talked us through the villas functions and set up. She is so nice and a great asset to this villa. We think this villa is by far one of the best, well equipped villas we have ever stayed in and everything was clean. The villa was also incredibly safe for our 3 young children. Baby gates and pool gates kept our little ones safe. Pool was amazing and fairly warm. Only thing we’d probably recommend for that is to have pool depths marked out. The gardens around the pool and villa were immaculate. Town centre is around a 20 minute walk down a walkway, you don’t have to walk on the road. We used our hire car to go to Gassin and Monte Carlo for day trips and the boat to get to St Tropez. We used the balcony off the kitchen a lot during our stay, a great place to unwind and watch the boats in the ocean from a tranquil retreat. We most certainly will be back.
Wonderful villa, fabulous place for a great vacation.
The villa has a great location. It has an amazing view day and night which is not portrayed in the photos. We ate in the house many times as the eating areas, the balcony and the BBQ area, are fabulous. The house is very comfortable and was plenty room for 8 adults. Anne Marie is wonderful and was very helpful in explaining about the house and the area. The owner of the house is also excellent to deal with. We had a car but found that is wasn't that far to walk to the town and the beach. It is a quiet place but lots of activity in the centre with so many cafes and restaurants to choose from. We love Sainte Maxime and surrounding areas especially for the shopping in the markets and boutiques!! Would recommend a visit.
With summer nearing its end in September, we couldn’t have been more pleased that the weather stayed warm and beautiful and that you could enjoy all that Sainte-Maxime has to offer – it is definitely very difficult to tear oneself away from the peaceful setting of the Villa!! But, as you noticed, the Villa lends itself to plenty of festive moments at any time of day or night. Thank you for being our last great guests this summer!
A simply stunning property, well positioned with lovely views of the sea and Sainte Maxime
Anne-Marie gave the whole family a very warm welcome and spent time explaining the general workings of the villa and sharing priceless local information.
Super clean and stylish with every aspect considered - this villa was a wonderful relaxing retreat for our family of five. The pool area with it's outdoor kitchen was a real bonus and we ate many meals 'al fresco' every sunny day. The pool area captures the sun all day and the infinity pool was fabulous.
St Maxime with its wonderful restaurants was great for nightlife and Saint Tropez was spectacular with it's stunning marina and quaint narrow streets. Our only regret was not taking the ferry over to St Tropez as Anne Marie suggested - it sounds great fun.
We really enjoyed our two week holiday and would highly recommend this Villa and the surrounding area - Would love to return again soon.
Thank you for the very nice review of your stay at Villa L’Ecrin. We want our guests to feel the same way we do in our French home; Every chance we get we are back in Sainte-Maxime to recharge our batteries in the peaceful setting you now have experienced. You will certainly make Anne-Marie happy to see you again – she really wanted you to do that boat ride!! Looking forward to hearing from you and hoping you will come back soon.
A wonderful week at Villa L'Ecrin.
Spent a week at Villa L'Ecrin with our family. The Villa was fantastic, spacious and well designed. The views are amazing and the pool and seating areas are wonderful. We would recommend the Villa and the St Maxime to anyone. We will definitely return.
We are so pleased when our guests report back to us how they’ve enjoyed our villa and the “village” atmosphere of our little town of Sainte-Maxime. Thank you for the pleasure it gives us also to hear you will return. The house is yours whenever you want!
Everything you need for a relaxing holiday!
We have spent three wonderful weeks at L`ecrin from July 1st to July 22nd. We have enjoyed the house, the garden area and not a least the pool! You have everything you need for a relaxing holiday at L`ecrin. We had all our meals outside, either at the large terrace in front of the living room or at the barbeque area by the pool. Anne Marie gave us a warm welcome and took good care of us during the stay. We would absolutely consider going back to L`ecrin at another occasion.
Knowing how July can be a very hot month, weather wise and otherwise with booming festivities (like the 14th July Fireworks in the Bay of St Tropez…) and activities attracting many many tourists and summer residents, all of which is part of the holiday fun of course, we can however appreciate all the more the fact you were able to enjoy in a most relaxing way all that our home can offer – especially the pool and the BBQ area! We are so happy you had a great time.
From Anne-Marie’s report, you were all very kind in taking great care of the Villa not on a daily basis, but even up to the last moments of your departure – thank you for leaving it impeccably neat and tidy. We do hope to see you at another occasion (fall is beautiful too), so make it a promise: do come back again soon!
Sainte Maxime is a thriving town located across the Gulf from St Tropez with a lot of varied entertainment throughout the summer months. There is a regular ferry to St Tropez from the harbour which takes about 15 minutes, a great alternative to driving around the coast which takes rather longer! Ste Maxime has its own sandy beaches (along with a few quiet pebble beaches) and beach bars/restaurants all within easy walking distance from the Villa or if you prefer to explore inland it is a 15-20 minute drive to Plan-de-la-Tour or the perched village of Grimaud. The second part of Grimaud well worth exploring is ‘Port Grimaud’ which is situated on the coast. It is known as the 'Venice of the South of France' with lots of restaurants and boutiques to while your time away. Visit the more popular village of Cogolin on market days and where they produce all sorts of pipes (for smoking!). In the Port of Cogolin they hold animated evenings every weekend throughout the summer. Another possibility is a Wine Tour. There are numerous vineyards in the area, and perched villages such as Ramatuelle or Gassin which are all within a 20 minute drive (depending on summer traffic of course!). The Sainte-Maxime Tourist Office will have all the information you need for outings should you want to tear yourself away from Villa l’Ecrin during your stay!
