The secluded position of L'Escalinade means that you can choose between Ste Maxime's varied day and nightlife and your own company in the extensive grounds.
It is easy to forget you are 'quatre pas' from the centre of the town when you are relaxing round the private pool in solitude.
It feels as though you could step off the balconies and on to the glowing terracotta roofs of the town below straight into the sea.
Regular regattas and fireworks take place on the Bay of St Tropez and the family will be able to give you extensive information for finding stunning local cuisine, quirky tourist spots and special beaches
Bilingual representative available at all times.
The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
The Cote d'Azur is literally on your doorstep at L'Escalinade, with St Tropez facing you and Nice approximately an hour away along the seaside Basse Corniche route that ducks in and out of the ancient rock revealing sandy nooks of beach for idyllic isolation, as well as the hubbub of the tourist towns and marinas of Cannes and Antibes.
The area is renowned for its fine wines and superb cuisine infused with the influences of Provence, Italy and North Africa as the area has been passed between the great barons of Villeneuve and Savoie and the nations of France and Italy whilst accommodating their empires' immigres.
The Provencaux are fiercely proud of their heritage and retain their own language, seen on all town road signs and spoken in cafe corners.
Nestling below the parasol pines of the rugged Provençal Maures, and across the deep blue bay from the fabled fishing village of St. Tropez, Ste. Maxime exudes the ease of traditional Mediterranean living with the vibrancy of the modern Cote d'Azur.
By day, take in the yachts bobbing from the marina to Monaco and Cannes, sunbathe on the fine sandy beaches, enjoy a game of petanque or just sip your expresso with the locals watching the world go by.
At night the medieval town bursts into life with its kaleidoscope of street stalls, concerts and performers; not to mention the selection of high quality restaurants serving freshly caught and harvested regional dishes as well as Italian, Indian, Vietnamese, North African and Spanish cuisine.
The local pink rose wine is a perfect accompaniment to the summertime vibe that continues long into the night.
The town is designed to be explored on foot and most amenities are within a five minute stroll.
Hiking round the Semaphore hill above the town is highly recommended for the breathtaking views in all directions, whilst horse riding, golf, cycling, canoeing, sailing, scuba-diving and all other water sports are easily found in the locality.
There is also a museum of local history set in a medieval fort on the seafront and frequent art exhibitions, whilst the casino is always a popular diversion.
If you still require more stimulation perhaps you can find it a short 20 minute ferry ride away in St. Tropez, holiday home to the silver screen stars.
Wander the winding streets of designer shops and mingle with the locals bargaining on the Place des Lices market then take a seat in the quayside cafes and try to spot the famous and infamous hopping on and off the gangways.

Thank you for your kind review and we are delighted you enjoyed your stay! We try to give excellent value for money in an incredible location and include our guests in impromptu evening drinks and food on many occasions.
We send to all our guests, prior to arrival,very detailed instructions on how to find us and to avoid using sat nav as our house doesnt seem to exist! We strongly advise that our instructions are followed.
Our parking is entirely free of charge, in the centre of the town, and there is more space per vehicle than in most public car parks. It does, however, require considerate parking by all guests. There is a municipal car park next door, which may be preferable to some guests at 17 euros a day.
We do hope to see you again at L'escalinade, Ronnie will be waiting for you!
