Swimming pool has a life guard on duty during July and August
Provence is the stunningly beautiful south-eastern region of France by the Mediterranean coast next to Italy and is commonly known as the Cote D’Azur.
Provence attracts visitors to almost 300 days of sunshine annually. Boasting hot dry summers and mild winters, this is the main pull for foreign visitors escaping for short breaks or week stays.
The biggest and most popular attractions are the cities of Nice and Cannes and the surrounding small villages in the mountains. Monte Carlo is also very near with its jet-set lifestyle, casinos and great restaurants.
Ideally located in the quiet domaine, you can choose to spend a peaceful day at the villa or explore the local villages of St Tropez, Post Grimaud, Cogolin or Ste Maxime.
Ste Maxime Town
Ste Maxime is a pleasant old town with a palm tree lined promenade, cobbled streets and a wealth of lively and reputable restaurant and bars to choose from. La Reserve and La Maison Bleu are both bustling and popular haunts for the locals and tourists and are very family orientated. Popular bars include Le Wafou and the Café de France – both great places for relaxing, enjoying a glass of rose and watching the world go by!
St Tropez is less than half an hour (though in the height of summer this can vary and a recommendation would be to take the boat from Ste Maxime - this operates regularly during the season – no traffic and you enjoy the views at the same time!).
It is very much a main attraction of the area with its ocean going yachts, quayside artists and non-stop fashion parade. It is particularly well served with boutiques, a lively, twice-weekly market (Saturdays and Tuesdays) and many restaurants.
It can be expensive to eat out especially near the quayside but there still remains some relatively cheap places that will suit all tastes, especially Pizza Bruno just one street back from the main port.
Love it or hate it, the St Tropez experience is almost a must for anyone visiting the area.
Touring and Beaches
Port Grimaud, situated at the head of the Golfe de Ste Tropez, is called the Venice of France. Although relatively modern it has been built in traditional Provencal style. You can hire small boats or take the waterbus to see the village from the water.
Or there are the superb beaches of Pampelonne (where you can mingle with the rich and famous), Cap d’Esterill and Cavalaire, as well as all the beaches on either side of Ste Maxime.
Sport and Shopping
There are numerous local attractions nearby: water sports, golf, riding, aqua parks, wine tasting, local markets etc. The hill top villages of Plan de la Tour, Ramatuelle and Grimaud with their fine restaurants are all nearby and offer spectacular views of the Golfe de St Tropez, or the magical beauty of the Provencal countryside, or travel to Cannes, Nice, Monte Carlo or even Italy!
