Luxurious Villa with beautiful views/surroundings.

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place for my wife and I to celebrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary with our family. There were 11 of us and we fitted well into the 6 bedrooms. All the rooms of Villa Maxime are furnished to a high standard with complete air-conditioning throughout. The walls are tastefully decorated with pictures and prints including some of Jack Vetriano's, Glaswegian Artist's, works.

There is an excellent Terrace with outstanding views and beneath that is a good sized swimming pool.

The Villa is cleaned daily by very friendly, accommodating staff.

We dealt with Ann the owner directly. She was very prompt in responding to all our queries and very friendly and professional.

The Villa is in an excellent position for visiting local attractions and numerous restaurants, a 5-10 minute walk to St. Paul de Vence.

Our family voted the week as the best holiday we have had together and we would certainly recommend the Villa to the greater family and friends.

An unforgettable experience

  • 5 of 5

We truly are seasoned travelers accustomed to luxury vacations. Villa St. Maxime meets and exceeds our standards. The setting is everything you can imagine in the pastoral setting of St. Paul de Vence area. The house itself is contemporary yet warm and inviting. The six bedrooms allow for a large family or group of friends to enjoy all that the Villa has to offer. Views of the valley, a very large pool, air conditioning, a stone's throw from the medieval town of St. Pauk de Vence, fifteen minutes from NIce, thirty minutes to Cannes and short drives to excellent restaurants and museums. The breakfast eggs and croissants are above and beyond.

We stayed a month and regretted leaving. The Villa St. Maxime is a winner!!

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

We recently hired a villa in the South of France for myself and four colleagues with our spouses. Our intent was to do some business planning, share some creative thoughts and relax. We are all partners in engineering enterprise. This was in the fall of 2012.

We finally selected this villla just outside an art village St. Paul de Vence.

The Villa exceeded our expectations in nearly every way. One of the largest swimming pools I have ever used, surrounded by extensive gardens and a magnificent view. The Villa itself was exceptional. Ultra modern (a nice break from provencal), marble floors and columns, arched ceilings, beautiful rooms with knock-out views, art work everywhere, huge common areas, superb and well equipped kitchen. The glass ceiling even opened up. We also enjoyed the ladies who came in mornings to help out.

The village was charming, lots of art and good restaurants. Happily it is centrally placed within easy range of most anywhere on the Riviera.

We got our work done and had a great time. I recommend it.

Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a two week stay at this villa last July. Beautiful villa, beautiful views and beautiful St Paul De Vence. Cannot recommend this spot enough. My thanks to Ann and John, the villa owners and a special thanks to Francoise and Laura for all their kind assistance and hard work. We are missing the wonderful surroundings.It really was a perfect vacation which everyone enjoyed immensely.

The whole party left with a heavy heart.

Super Summer Place

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I celebtrated our 50th anniversary in August and we decided to bring the whole tribe ot the south of France to pass a few weeks with us. We selected Villa Saint Maxime , overlooking the sea above Nice - and we were very happy we did.

The place is beautiful, modern, fully equipped, spotless, with a magnificent pool. The staff was excellent and very helpful in makiing dinner and party arragements.

And al of this wth fabulous views and within walking distance of St Paul de Vence.

We wil most definitely stay there again.

Now we know how the movie stars live

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family (10) decided to spend Christmas and New Years on the French Riviera (combined with a some business) and decided to rent Villa St. Maxime in St. Paul de Vence (in the hills between Nice and Cannes). We were given a wonderful welcome, complimentary bottle of wine, excellent Guest Information Book and a tour of the villa (kitchen/electricity/security/etc.).

Amazing architecture, marble floors, beautifully furnished, commanding sea view and a huge pool (which we could not unfortunately use – too chilly – although we did have drinks on the terrace a few times). Everything fully equipped, wireless and PC, superb kitchen, TV's and DVD's in every room. All first quality. None of the "self catering" junk in the kitchen, or dining room.

We were provided two excellent ladies who spoke English. Cleaned every morning (except Sunday) and were very helpful.

All in all a wonderful property. We had a great time and recommend it highly.

St Paul is a medieval hilltop walled village located some 25 minutes from Nice airport, and easy driving distance from Antibes, Cannes, and St Tropez in one direction, and Eze, Monaco and Italy in the other, and close to the Alpine ski slopes. Since the 1870's the area has attracted leading painters – Cezanne, Monet, Van Gogh, Bracque, Picasso, Rouault, Rothko, César. In the 1950’s the leading lights of the French entertainment world followed – Simone Signoret, Yves Montand, Jean Paul Belmondo - as well as Hollywood stars - David Niven, Kirk Douglas, Robert Mitchum, Cary Grant - and more recently Roger Moore, Sean Connery and Rod Stewart. The Colombe d'Or restaurant is testimony to this legacy, with painters leaving their work in lieu of payment and stars their photos on the walls. This is reflected locally by the numerous art shops & galleries , and museums: Maeght foundation, Matisse (his Chapelle des Rosaire in Vence is certainly worth a visit), Renoir, Picasso.
