We visited the villa in December and were pleasantly surprised at how such a beautiful summer holiday location could also offer such a cosy and homely feel during the winter months. The villa had... more

We had a very pleasant time in villa Gardiette, the house is very well equipped, a home from home. My teenage daughters liked the fact there were plenty of DVDs to watch in the evening, the bedrooms were very comfortable, the kitchen very nice and clean , and although the pool is not big, it is warm and the view is great from it. I liked sitting on the terrace watching the sea. The barbecue terrace was excellent too. We recommend going to Sainte-Maxime for an evening meal, it is very lively and atmospheric, and take the ferry from there to Saint-Tropez. Grimaud is lovely too.There are nice walks to do in the hills above the house, go to the top of Avenue des Corailleurs and you are in the open countryside, but with signposted walks. The best beach for adults and teenagers is La Gaillarde, great swimming. We enjoyed our week very much.

This is a stunning holiday villa: fabulous views over the sea with all the comforts of home inside. It is in an excellent location to explore the area. On the days we could drag ourselves away from the pool and views we visited St Tropez (via water bus), Cannes and Monte Carlo (efficient air conditioned train service). From arranging the booking, through arrival and departure the owner Gina and local support Jan were more than helpful. There are also some good beach restaurants in St Aygulf. (A car is necessary - although you could walk to the village it is a very steep walk back!) Due to the location and quality of the villa it would also be extremely comfortable for out of season holidays. (We were delighted to discover it had Sky Sports so we could keep up with the football news!) We hope to come back to the area another time and would definitely want to stay here again.
