Why Clive and Mary Davies chose Port Cogolin
Our holiday rentals is well equipped with all you need for you holiday. The property is ideally located for visiting St Tropez and discovering the wonderful beaches and attractive seaside towns such as Port Grimaud, St Maxine and hillside villages such as Grimaud, Cogolin and Gassin. It is really relaxing as the pool is only 2 mins walk away and the apartment is situated in beautiful landscaped gardens. We really enjoy walking around the Port and see the amazing yachts and visiting the local bars and restaurants. We find that there is always something new to do however many times you visit. In the summer months there is a ferry twice a day from Port Cogolin to St Tropez which is great for shopping and sightseeing. We also find it is easy to visit even for a short time as we can take a plane to Nice hire a car and get here in 7 hours from or home in Surrey. Toulon airport is also close by which offers similar quick travel times.
What makes this Apartment unique
We love the apartment as it has stunning views from the terrace and is ideally located to enjoy being at the seaside but close to interesting towns and villages such as St Tropez and Port Grimaud where there are lots of shops and restaurants. Just a few minutes away by car is a large supermarket, crazy golf, ten pin bowling, go karts, tourist information centre, and a friday market with local produce. There are also vineyards nearby to purchase wine and take part in the grape harvest in September. The apartment is located in a private residential area which can only be accessed by residents and has its own secure underground car park. The apartment has a wonderful panoramic view across towards Marine de Cogolin, Port Grimaud and the hills beyond. The residence is within a few minutes of the swimming pool, located in lovely landscaped gardens with views over the port.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
We enjoyed our stay in L'Annonciade apartment in Port Cogolin and hope to revisit the place in the future. The apartment is conveniently situated in gated complex within walking distance to nearby attractions ( ports, restaurants, bakery, cafes and beach). In the late afternoons we enjoyed a swim in the swimming pool, also situated within the complex, and the glass of Rose on the terrace looking at the boats. The onwers, Mary and Clive, were very helpful and provided great communication. Well recomended.
Apartment in Port-Cogolin
A lovely apartment in a beautiful setting, within walking distance of some fantastic places.
The Balcony was a huge bonus as you could sit and while away the hours watching the boats coming and going. Port Cogolin is quiet but very idyllic and Cogolin itself has many shops and a good market to explore and a Beach within walking distance.
Walk to Port Grimaud and discover the restaurants, shops and beaches and soak up the atmosphere.
The Pool at the complex is clean and refreshing and we all enjoyed our time spent in it. Having somewhere to leave the car without worrying was great and the whole complex is beautifully kept.
Thank you Clive and Mary for sharing your little piece of paradise.

Our apartment in Port Cogolin is the ideal spot for a relaxing family holiday. We are glad the Grimsey family enjoyed all the amenities. Clive and Mary Davies
A perfect holiday!
I had a wonderful 10 day holiday here in July 2010. The flat was everything that was advertised, it was spotless, with great access to stores, beaches, and restaurants both by car and on foot. The 3rd floor location of the flat is great as it provides a lovely view of the mountains and the canals of Port Cogolin leading out to sea. The flat owners, Mary & Clive, could not have been friendlier and it made it so much more pleasant to rent from people who were helpful and you could actually communicate with. Overall a wonderful experience, if you are looking for a place to stay in this lovely area I can strongly recommend this property.
a relaxing time in the sun
well satisfied with the property as advertised -good location, easy access,friendly environment,though a car is almost mandatory if you want to visit the surrounding attractions.i couldnt hire a car either on the internet or in st.raphael as we arrived there on a sunday,though i am not that keen anyway on driving on the cote d'azur.property was very clean and mary had given us excellent instructions how to get to the destination.if you are taking a bus from st raphael, the 7601, get off at the la foux roundabout near the Geant hypermarche and it is a 10 minute walk to the apartment.pool is good,gardens well maintained and general area very tidy.facilities in port cogelin itself are very limited but restaurant Baou Baou worth a visit.5 or 6 decent restaurants in Marines-les-cogelin, the vietnamese the best food and value.for easier access to Les Marines walk over the footbridge nr the security barrier ,through a small gate and then turn right and take a left after 250 metres.port grimaud is a must-see and there is an excellent Brasserie on the left of the square almost opposite Hotel Suffren.Gassin is also well worth a visit,very "pittoresque" with lovely restaurants and views.Overall we are a relaxing and very pleasant stay in clive and marys "pied a terre"
Great stay in September
We had a fantastic stay at this appartment last September. We were very lucky with the weather as it was beautiful throughout. It is the ideal base for visiting the beautiful beaches and countryside of the Cote d'Azur and for the occasional visit to St Tropez to see how the other half live!! It was very clean and comfortable, with a great outside terrace to sit, drink and eat. It really felt like you could go at your own pace and we loved being able to stock up on food and drink from the large supermarket nearby. Overall great!!
Appartment ideally located for relaxing on a beach, enjoying the countryside or visiting St Tropez and Port Grimaud.
A wonderfully relaxing holiday
The apartment is based in a wonderful location, just a short distance away from a variety of restaurants, bars and ice cream parlours! We also took a short boat trip to St. Tropez, where we enjoyed the lively atmosphere and provincial market. The apartment was clean, well-maintained, with a compact, yet fully functional kitchen. It provided a relaxing environment in which to stay, and was equipped with a television, DVD and CD player for nights in. We spent a lot of time relaxing in the shade of the balcony whilst enjoying a glass of wine and food bought from the local supermarket. I would recommend this property to anyone seeking a relaxing getaway or for those who enjoy days out shopping or playing sports, such as tennis and golf.
A couple in their twenties they especially enjoyed taking the ferry "La Pouncho" from Port Cogolin to St Tropez where they could have breakfast overlooking the harbour. The ferry operates on a regular basis during the season and is less than 5 minutes from the apartment. The balcony has an awning so you can sit in the shade or rolling it back if you prefer the sunshine.
