“Great place for adults and children in superb setting”
The villa setting is superb, and you won't get tired of looking at the view of the Mediterranean and the movement of all the boats. The pool is excellent, with lots of sunshades, loungers and chairs to relax/sunbathe around it. The shaded open area with the large table to seat eight people was the centre of our eating (and drinking!) and playing cards etc. Plenty of room for parking, and electric gates keep the young ones safe. There's a good gas BBQ, and we played a lot of table tennis! Inside the house, it is well furnished and the four bedrooms are all air-conditioned, with three bathrooms in total. The lower level bedroom/dressing room/shower & toilet is completely self-contained. It is difficult to fault this lovely place - we could only think of the kitchen hob being painfully slow and the fridge could be bigger and is not very efficient! But there is a freezer downstairs in the laundry room with a washer and tumble dryer, and otherwise the equipment in the kitchen is excellent, and there is that dishwasher...! There is a local supermarket a little over 5 minutes drive away, and a small epicerie that is even closer for your morning baguettes and croissants. We were made very welcome both by Jan, who let us in and saw us out, and by the owners, who were helpful throughout and always ready to answer our questions. We had a fabulous time and highly recommend this villa!
“an enjoyable and relaxing holiday”
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.
“perfect - didn't want to leave”
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.
“Fantastic holiday in fantastic house”
When we arrived at Villa Gardiette and saw the view from the terrace it took our breath away - a full panorama of the beautiful blue Mediterranean sea. The house is perfect for a family holiday, very comfortable, with all the amenities that you could want, plus more stunning views from the bedroom balconies. The house was very clean and the representatives who met us were extremely charming and helpful (and English speaking). This is a wonderful base to explore a gorgeous area of France. We enjoyed taking the water taxi from St Maxime to St Tropez (which is a MUST to visit - all those millionaire yachts!). The owners were endlessly helpful, even buying little toys as presents for the little guests. I thoroughly recommend this house and the area. In fact when we landed back in the UK to horizontal rain, 12C and a cutting wind, we very nearly got back on the plane to our lovely holiday villa.
“Magnificent views to the sea from an excellent villa in an ideal location.”
The villa is clean, spacious and well maintained. It is very relaxing with magnificent views down the valley to the sea. It has both security and privacy. You can sit around the pool or go for a walk around the area. The local town is within walking distance but a car / transport is recommended if you want to go sightseeing or play on some of the many golf courses around the area.
“Perfect holiday villa”
We wish we could have stayed longer than just one week, the villa was extremely clean and had everything we could have wanted and more. The views from the patio and private pool are just wonderful. The owners were very easy to work with and so helpful with recommendations for local restaurants and places to visit. We plan to return next year, hopefully for two weeks!
“Perfect holiday villa”
Beautiful villa with wonderful views, and a lovely pool. Plenty of sunbeds with comfy cushions, chairs and parasols. When booking we thought perhaps the villa would not be very private with the pool at the front of the property, we were pleasantly surprised as it is not overlooked at all and the little close is very quiet. The villas has everything you need, its like home from home. if you do decide to drag yourself away from the pool there are some very nice beaches nearby. There were eight of us and we all enjoyed our week . We would certainly recommend Villa Gardiette and are considering returning next year.
“Beautiful villa with stunning views, terrace and infinity pool”
A spacious and well equipped property, with a very homely feel. Well located for trips all along the Riviera whilst also benefitting from the local amenities of St Aigulf. The white sands and clear water at the local beach are a short drive away, or you can chill out by the pool whilst enjoying the spectacular views. Plenty of local restaurants, a lovely market (twice a week we think) and a convenient supermarket. Would definitely recommend to both couples and families alike. We'll definitely be going again!
