Sainte-Maxime is the sister town of St Tropez, France, just 5km to the south. It is a dynamic Mediterranean seaside town, which takes on an international feel during the summer as tourists begin to infuse with the locals. Holiday rentals and luxury Sainte-Maxime villas are elegant and family oriented, with a host of facilities and points of interest to entertain anyone for the duration of their holiday.
Sainte-Maxime holiday rentals are all within a few minutes walk of the fine white sandy beaches of the Gulf of Saint Tropez. The beach at the centre of town is convenient and very nice, but the best beaches are just outside the town, especially La Nartelle beach. From the town beaches, boat hire, sailing and a huge selection of water sports are available. When you first arrive in your Sainte-Maxime holiday rental apartment, it may be a good idea to take one of the guided walks or horse drawn carriage rides to get your bearings and discover a little about the town.
Renting an apartment in Sainte-Maxime creates the opportunity to enjoy almost every sport, especially the much celebrated walking, hiking and cycling in the magnificent hills surrounding the town. Although large stretches of forestry were destroyed in the fires of 2003, there are still some beautiful spots to hike. Cycling is not only restricted to the hills. The coastal path snakes for miles along the Mediterranean coastline. There are also a number of golf courses close to the villas of St Maxime which are open to the public.
The casino and Theatre of the Sea are magnificent venues for an evening out from your Sainte-Maxime villa, with many spectacles being put on every month. There is a wealth of fantastic places to eat or have a drink here too.
Saint Tropez is the most famous resort of the French Riviera in Var. It is located near some of the best beaches around, especially along the Baie de Pampelonne to the south of the town. It is a hugely glamorous and chic town, and there are even occasional fashion shows on the beaches! Windsurfing, sailing, jet skiing and power boats are all common sights from a holiday rental villa in Saint Tropez, whilst the huge, luxurious yachts sail into town each October for the regatta.
