A stunning house in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful 2 weeks here with our 3 young children. Our prerequisites were to have a villa with a large pool, air conditioning in all bedrooms and within walking distance to a village. The house ticked all these boxes and more.

The pool is wonderful, very large and the perfect temperature and the garden is stunning. The house itself is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need in the kitchen, and more! The rooms all lead out on to the garden and face south so are beautifully bright and there are lots of spots inside and out to eat, relax, play games etc. The layout works perfectly for family life and being all on one level it's safe for young children.

The village is a 15 minute walk (at the children's pace) and has everything you could need. We shopped at the Carrefour in Sainte Maxime but topped up at the village store. There are also some very good restaurants and if you can't manage / be bothered to walk there's a large car park.

All in all we had a wonderful holiday in Villa Balou, it's a slice of paradise with plenty to see and do nearby and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Thank you Alain and Michele for your kind hospitality.

Paradise is the best word I can use to describe our time at this beautiful property. All of our creature comforts were well taken care of but it was the sense of peace and well being that we experienced almost from the first few mins there that made it such a lovely experience. The beautiful mountain views we enjoyed while having coffee on the patio (made in 1 of the 2 excellent coffee makers in the very well equipped kitchen) were a wonderful way to start the day before the kids woke up and jumped straight into the pool.

The village nearby has some great restaurants that are very family friendly. There is also a traditional French market on Thursdays which we really enjoyed. Whilst the property is very private and feels like it is off the beaten track it is no distance to St Maxime, St Tropez and many others. Everything is well signposted so getting around is not difficult.

This is a five star property that I would have no hestiation recommending to anyone. I hope you enjoy is as much as we did.

A property with distinction

  • 5 of 5

We have spent our holidays in Ste. Maxime for a number of years renting a variety of properties.

This villa is first class and in a good, accessible location, though far enough out to avoid the noise and traffic. It is also well appointed and as we like to prepare meals for ourselves, it was so nice to have reliable, quality equipment to work with.

Dealing with the owner was easy and friendly.

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 (four couples)stayed at the villa the last week in May, 2011. The Villa is very private and little difficult to find, however, with the owners excellent directions the challenge was worth it. We loved the property. The description was very accurate and the photos were exactly as we found the Villa. There was more than enough room for all of us.

The Villa's location allowed us to do day trips to Nice, Monte Carlo, Nimes and of course Saint Tropez by ferry. It was great to come back to the villa for a swim and a BBQ each evening.

We would definitely recommended this property, Michael, the owner was very helpful and Vincent checked in with us to ensure that everything was ok.

We - my husband and I and our adult off-spring - rented this property in June 2009 to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. It was wonderful. The house has all you could possible want and everything - both inside and out - worked perfectly. The village is great with excellent restaurants and a good market on Thurs. There's a huge Carrefour supermarket 10 mins drive away and the beach at St. Maxime is about 20 drive. The ferry across to St. Tropez is brilliant.

We will definitely be going back.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in this Villa on two occasions and hope to do so again in the near future. It is beautifully laid out and presented, extremely private, yet close to the amenities in the village of Plan de la Tour. The fittings in the Villa are very high quality and although it is large and spacious, it is very easy to maintain. The pool and play areas are safe and suitable for children of all ages. The girls loved taking the ferry to the markets in St Tropez and we all enjoyed dining in both Plan de la Tour and Saint Maxime. There is lots to do and see in the surrounding countryside. Highly recommended.
