Absolute Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

A delightful, comfortable yacht equipped with every essential and utensil including hot water, air conditioning, a toilet, fridge and cooker. There's even a shower although we chose to use the private shower and toilet facilities in the marina (1 min walk away.) The Vaakuna is unique and full of character with comfortable beds and everything you need for a fantastic holiday. It is moored about 2 mins walk from the sandy beach and a good selection of restaurants and a little supermarket are 3 or 4 mins walk away. We caught the train from London to St Raphael and the 7601 bus to La Foux - 20mins walk from Marines des Cogolin. We didn't miss the car at all. Everything we needed was right there and you can catch les bateaux verts for trips out to St Tropez, Port Grimaud, St Maxine about 1 min walk away from boat. The host, Meike, was delightful and very welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. The hosts live nearby but left us in peace to enjoy our holiday but it was nice to know they were nearby if we'd had a problem. Meike even left us a chilled bottle of rosé, chilled water and some nibbles as a welcome treat which was much appreciated after our long journey, very kind . It made us feel so welcome too. My husband and I stayed with our 6 year old who found the whole experience of 'boat life ' to be an incredible adventure and with the warm, inviting Mediterranean Sea to play in only a few steps away he was in his element! I couldn't recommend this accommodation or the host any more highly and we are already making plans to return to the beautiful Vaakuna in the future. We can't wait! Thank you so much Meike, we have wonderful memories to take home with us.

Fabulous vacations at Vacuna

  • 5 of 5

We had a great and extraordinary time at the boat. The boat is comfortable in its way and spacious. We are still missing the wonderful view and sunset. The owners are very great, loyal and faithful. The Highlight of our Trip was the sailing trip around the bay of St. Tropez.

All in all definetly recommendable. We will come again

Just great

  • 5 of 5

Wir, eine Familie mit zwei Kindern (4J & 6J) genossen eine herrliche Woche auf der Vaakuna. Das Boot ist gut und zweckmässig ausgestattet und auch mit Kinder ohne Probleme zu bewohnen.

Ferien am und auf dem Meer! Fischen, baden und gutes Essen, direkt vor der 'Haustüre'!

Nochmals vielen Dank fuer die Gastfreundschaft

Wunderschöne Zeit verbracht

  • 4 of 5

Wir, Familie mit 2 Kindern (7 und 9 Jahre alt) haben eine wunderschöne Zeit verbracht auf der Vaakuna.

Sehr gut hat uns gefallen: Charme des Schiffes, Sehr nette und hilfreiche Besitzer, Infrastruktur des Hafens, naher Strand mit schönen Restaurants, naher Attraktionen-Park, nähe zu Supermarkt, nähe zu St. Tropez (Transfer-Schiff), nähe zum superschönen Port Grimaud, sehr ruhig (Samstags Musik vom Strand-Restaurant)

Nicht optimal: versprochener Internet-Zugang Wifi schwach oder gar nicht verfügbar, nicht ganz einfacher Einstieg auf das Boot.

Absolut empfehlenswert für mal andere Ferien.

Car: recommended

Only 5 km from St. Tropez directly by the Port Grimaud you will find the harbour of Cogolin. Here in the heart of the 'Golf de St. Tropez' you will find Vaakuna. In addition to a lot of beaches, an amusement park and of course the attractive Port Grimaud you will find countless further options for enjoying your holiday. You can make your holiday even more diverse: there are only a few kilometers between the mega-yachts in St. Tropez and the small mountain villages. Countless water sports (water skiing, surfing, sailing, diving, jet skiing) and horseback riding, hiking, mountain biking, go carting, mini golf, paintball, bowling and billiards are found nearby.

Also excursions on both side of the coast or into the charming back country with mountain villages surrounded by pine forests are charming changes between the beach and sea. But also the large cities like Marseilles, Aix en Provence and Nice can be reached within 1 to 2 hours through the highway.

Other Activities: Jetskiing

Golf: 9 hole golf course.
