Very Private Home wWith Sensational Sea Views
Excellent location and facilities, with flexible accomodation making this ideal for groups with (older) children. Outdoor seating and eating areas are especially good. The house keeping arrangements and cooking are excellent and well worth using to enhance the holiday. Wonderful swimming pool and surround.
Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. Delighted that you had a wonderful holiday. Laura
We had a really magical and very relaxing 5 days staying in Laura's beautiful house. It is beautifully decorated and in excellent condition with comfortable beds and a very well equipped kitchen. There are lots of shady areas to escape from the sun to relax and read a book from her extensive collection. The pool is fantastic and a great size. It is a very tranquil and secluded location, yet only a few minutes from the chic restaurants and boutiques of Ste Maxime with St Tropez an easy boat ride away. There is a lovely beach which is 10 minutes walk to. We cannot recommend this house highly enough. Douglas and Becky, who are the guardians of the house, are fantastic, very welcoming and friendly and both are superb cooks.
Thanks so much for your feedback, it is much appreciated. Just delighted that you had a wonderful time. Laura
Wonderful family get-together at Villa Amani
We spent a wonderful week at Villa Amani in May this year. The house is really beautiful and very well maintained. The facilities are great and provided the perfect setting for our family get-together! As a group of nine adults and one child, we used all five bedrooms, each of which being very nicely decorated and having its own bathroom which is extremely convenient. We loved the terrace overlooking the Sea, the pool and the boule area.
Becky and Douglas, the guardians of the house who are living next door, were so kind and very helpful for any kind of questions. When we had first problems to find the property upon our arrival, Douglas was so kind to pick us up. We also enjoyed a great dinner cooked by the two of them on one evening and served on the terrace.
We can definitely recommend Villa Amani to anybody who is looking for a relaxed and enjoyable time at Côte d'Azur. We definitely spent a wonderful week of quality time with the whole family of three generations.
Thanks so much.
Delighted that you had a lovely time at Villa Amani and had such a wonderful family holiday. Laura
Laura the owner is absolutely lovely and very easy to deal with which makes booking very stress free and straight forward. The house is located in a beautiful location with fantastic views over the Mediterranean. Although there are other houses around and about you really cant see them so all areas of the house and pool are extremely private. The rooms are all lovely and well proportioned and the pool is superb and much larger than average. We love this house and will definitely be returning.
Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review regarding your holiday at Villa Amani. I am so delighted that you had a wonderful time. So glad that you would like to come back. Laura
The right place for a successful vacation
Our third stay in Villa Amani fulfilled all our expectations also this year. The beautiful house, the stunning view, the quiet surroundings, the lovely garden and pool, and not to mention Rachel and Martin who did their utmost to make our vacation such a wonderful experience. Their cooking was excellent, and they even did all the shopping for us. The property is very clean and wellmaintained, and it is very easy to relate to the owner. We have stayed in Villa Amani both with friends and family with small children. In our opinion the house has everything to make a vacation successful for adults as well as children of all ages.
The jewell of the crown
We had our annual family gathering in Vila Amani with the family members flying from Buenos Aires, New York, London and Geneva.The house is extremely spacious ,very tastefully decorated, with an enormous well kept garden surrounded by trees and a magnificient view of the sea. The pool area is very large and very well designed with lots of space to lounge and a shaded area with a bar with a fridge. Throughout the house you will find bookshelves full of hardcover books with literature for all tastes. The real added value were Rachel and Martin who not only were attentive to our needs but cooked the most delicious meals for us ...the beef wellington and the foie gras poele were to die for and the triple chocolate brownie was top notch. This was a delightfull treat.

There are 2 cots and 2 high chairs.
There is an old all-weather tennis court on the Domaine approx 15 minutes' walk. There is also a tennis club on the far side of Les Issambres (temporary membership is easily obtained) where, being very near the sea, playing conditions can be somewhat cooler than on the Domaine itself. Thirdly, there is a rather grander tennis club on the "Amani" side of Ste Maxime where temporary membership is also available.
There are a number of enjoyable walks and mountain bike trails in the vicinity. Mountain bikes, scooters etc can be hired in Ste Maxime.
