Description from owner


L'Escalinade is a Boutique-style Bed and Breakfast (chambres d'hotes) not whole villa rental , within a well-kept private villa, owned by an English family. The price is based on one room for maximum 2 people. Each additional £105 is per room for maximum 2 people. Minimum 3 nights stay.

It is suitable for relaxing holidays for adults as we do not accept under 16 year olds. Do read our reviews!

There are 3 double or twin en suite rooms at £105 per night per room( 2 people).

The accommodation comprises of just 3 double bedrooms; 2 with their own private balcony, the third adjacent to a sun soaked terrace overlooking the pool, gardens and, of course, the Mediterranean coast.

All bedrooms are situated on the first floor, thus guaranteeing panoramic views and seclusion.

It is approx. 2 minutes walk to local market, shops and restaurants. 3 minutes walk to the beach.

A stroll around the grounds reveals a myriad of secret shaded corners, poolside tanning opportunities and a lush lawn on which to chill out.

There is even a traditional boulodrome on which to enjoy Provence's national sport!

L'Escalinade is perfect for a laid back break from the worries of the modern world and appreciation of the Provençal joie de vivre!

Please ask for further details.

No smoking is allowed anywhere within the grounds of the property.
We do not accept under 16's.


Further details outdoors

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

Very Good

“L'Escalade is a most tranquil beautiful setting for a very relaxing holiday.”

Reviewed 22 Aug 2016

This property is exactly how it looks in the photos. An absolutely stunning location just 5 minutes walk to the centre. The owners John and Joan are the perfect hosts for this charming B and B. Breakfasts Alfresco whilst enjoying the magnificent setting were a great start to each day. We enjoyed meeting other guests from around the world and of course Ronnie their wonderful Boxer dog. A very chilled holiday thanks to John and Joan. We miss it already.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much leaving the review and we are so please you had a lovely stay at L'Escalinade!

“Cracking stay!”

Reviewed 18 Aug 2016

Joan and John's boutique B & B is perfect. The house is a few minutes stroll from the centre of St Maxime, beach and marina. It is simply charming and oozing authentic provencal style from the pretty bedrooms to the lovely pool area. Breakfast is served al fresco by the pool and is delicious and perfect for the hot weather with yoghurt, home grown fruits, a selection of croissants, bread and cheese, fresh orange juice and tea/coffee. Joan and John are great hosts - we were greeted with ice cold local rose wine and nibbles whilst we were given local advice. St Maxime is great with an abundance of restaurants, lovely beach and easy access for a day out in St Tropez using the local ferry (15 mins). This place is really great and highly recommended - we will be back!

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for taking the trouble to write a review. We are so pleased you had a great time here, do come back soon but next time stay for longer!

“Fantastic welcome from our kind hosts!”

Reviewed 2 Jul 2013

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.

Owner's reply: 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!!!”

Reviewed 25 Aug 2011

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”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2011

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”

Reviewed 25 Jul 2011

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.
