Fantastic View, Peaceful Paradise!
It was relaxing and peaceful to sit outside and enjoy the breathtaking views. Beautiful home, very well maintained, clean, and comfortable. We enjoyed the hot tub. We were fortunate to meet the owners Chantal and Thierry. They were very friendly and gave us many excellent restaurant recommendations. It was hard to leave this beautiful paradise!
Fabulous weather even in lousy weather!
The house was amazing. Extremely well stocked kitchen. Very clean. We had a problem with scalding hot water in one bathroom but they tried to correct it immediately. The grounds live up to their pictures. Fire place was appreciated as we had cold weather. Owners were very understanding when we messed up our reservation and thought we were staying another night (thankfully they were able to accommodate us!). Would absolutely return and highly recommend.
Lovely villa, wonderful location
Two of us and our dog stayed at Villa Zen for a month in Jan/Feb 2019, with 2 friends joining us for part of the stay.
The villa and grounds are lovely and the panoramic views are wonderful. The villa is located on a gated, private domaine which is only a short distance from the beach. We saw one or two people walking up from the beach, but it is a steep climb and part of the way there is no pavement – the road wasn’t busy but this could be different in season. However, it took less than 5 minutes to drive down and park either in the 85 place free car park or on the seafront itself (again free). Dogs aren’t allowed on the beach nearest the villa. The villa garden is large and our dog found plenty to explore (although he was puzzled by the artificial grass to start with). We walked him every day in the forest which is about a 10 minute walk away from the villa.
Villa Zen is well-named - there is a wonderful feeling of space and peace, with uninterrupted views of the bay. There are plenty of areas to sit out in the garden and, if there was a large group of you, I think people would be able to ‘get away’ from each other outside. Although there are other villas close by, you are not overlooked. It was also very quiet most of the time – there were a few days when there was tree trimming going on around the domaine and there was some building work on a couple of plots on the domaine but there was no intrusive noise. Sounds travelled up from Sainte Maxime town centre – again not intrusive and it was lovely to hear the church bells.
The photos give a true idea of the villa, the surroundings and the views. We regularly rent villas and apartments and this is one of the best equipped and maintained we have come across.
Communication with Thierry (the owner) was very good and our damage deposit was returned very quickly. Fleur (the local manager) was responsive and helpful.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Zen and were sad to leave – we could happily have stayed for another month! We hope to return - but for longer next time.
Charming and conscientiously maintained villa
Charming and conscientiously maintained villa with responsive and thoughtful hosts. I would recommend this property to couples and families alike.
Thanks very much Tom
I hope to see you again …
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the villa which is based in a brilliant setting in Sainte Maxime. We comprised two families with four children under 10 - the pool was large and has a great deep end so hours of fun for the kids. The hot tub was also a major added bonus. Outside the villa there were a number of different areas to chill and relax - all made for a great stay. We were also lucky enough to be there on 15 August - the villa provides a brilliant view for the awesome annual Sainte Maxime fireworks. Very impressive. A big thanks to Thierry & Chantal who own the property - great with recommendations (babysitting, taxis, boat trips to) and always ver6 responsive. A great stay all round and somewhere we would thoroughly recommend.
We hope to see you again very soon
