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 French Riviera - 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.

"Fantastic welcome from our kind hosts!"
From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, nothing was too much trouble for John and Joan who are very friendly and welcoming. On arrival we were given beautiful chilled rose and tasty treats and most nights, if we were around, we were offered an aperitif with them. They are very helpful, but without being intrusive, and they are really knowledgeable about the local area and will lend you lots of maps and books. The breakfast is fantastic: all sourced locally, homemade jams (especially delicious), local cheese, yogurt and fruit with freshly baked pain au chocolat laid out on a delightful vine leaf and served in the garden overlooking the pool and the bay. The house is delightful and tastefully decorated, the gardens and pool very well maintained. The views are incredible whereever you look! Our room was lovely with an amazing view over to St Tropez, very clean and serviced whenever we required which was great. We are looking forward to our next visit and will definitely be back.
We are delighted you enjoyed your stay so much! We try to adjust to everyone's individual needs as much as possible and help where we can. We would be delighted to welcome you back anytime.

"Unas excelentes vacaciones!!!"
Mi marido y yo con nuestra pequeña hija de un año nos alojamos en Escalinade durante una semana en el mes de agosto y la experiencia fue buenísima!! Es una villa con piscina y gran jardín con muy buenas vistas a la bahía de Saint Tropez y cinco minutos andando del centro de Ste. Maxime y la playa. Por cierto, Ste. Maxime nos sorprendió muy gratamente, un pueblo precioso con mucho ambiente y a 15 min. en barco de St. Tropez. Joan & John, la familia inglesa que regenta la villa son encantadores y te facilitan todo para que tu estancia sea genial. Los desayunos que preparaban eran fabulosos!! La única pequeña pega que tiene es que la casa tiene 3 habitaciones y nosotros estuvimos en la que es abuhardillada con vigas de madera que para personas altas no la recomiendo mucho, aunque la verdad es que la vida la haces fuera de la habitación y tan sólo la utilizas para dormir. Pero si esto supone un problema las otras dos habitaciones tienen techos altos y son más espaciosas. Volveremos seguro!!

"A true gem"
This wonderful B&B gives you access to an amazing location in Ste Maxime and the St Tropez area. With its breathtaking view of the beautiful St Tropez bay and with the pretty old part of Ste Maxime with its many restaurants at its doorstep, this place is unbeatable. The rooms are beautiful, white and very clean. We had a great balcony overlooking the bay and so did our friends in the next room. We also had access to a terrace for self catered dining. In the pretty garden lies a very well kept pool that we enjoyed late afternoons after coming home from the beach. In the mornings we were treated to a picture perfect Provencal breakfast in the garden. The host and hostess were so friendly and helpful and left us nothing else to wish for than to come back soon again!

"Excellent Bed & Breakfast; Provencale Stylish Rooms"
I would highly recommend this charming retreat for couples who want to get away for a romantic break. The owners of the house made our stay comfortable and couldn't do enough for us; from providing extra linen, delicious breakfasts and recommending restaurants and bars in the vicinity. The location is excellent; within 3 minutes stroll you are in the centre of St Maxime. A 12 minute boat trip enables you to visit the beautiful shops of St Topez. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend enjoying a glass of rose by the swimming pool of this charming house whilst taking in the views of the bay.
