What a beautifully restored Villa, right on the sea, with immaculate gardens of mature , trees, new-laid stone walkways and driveway. Across the road is a fluffy-sand beach (unusual here).
The apartment rooms are spacious (also unusual here) with new and comfortable furniture and large dining table. The kitchen is well-equipped and new. Big and small supermarkets are right down the road. St. Tropez is intimate with newly cobbled streets that wind to the top of the hill, with lovely shops. The harbor in the old town has gorgeous yachts, cafes and restaurants and two great museums not to be missed. The coast road towards Le Lavandou should also not be missed: dramatic views of rocky coasts, sand beaches in small coves and lovely hillside houses. We loved the location and the Villa. The views of the sea from the bedroom and living room and the lovely decor and paint colors will live long in our memory. 3 lovely hilltop towns are close by, too. Thank you, Stephano and Mr. Bill!
The check in/out process was quick and handled well. The hotel is in a good location close to the beach and short walk to the port. The bus stop is just outside the hotel gate, which is good for transport links to the train station.
The hotel in general was beautiful, lovely,clean and sizable room with a wonderful sea view. The staff very attentive. Its in a perfect location (if not a bit noisy from road) for walking into St.Maxime or exploring further along the coast. My main complaint is the fact they advertise a restaurant and bar, neither of which were open. I understand that we went out of season, but if they had stated these were seasonal facilities, we would have stayed elsewhere. We had some heavy rain during our stay and really only wanted to have a meal and drink at hotel, but alas, had to travel along the coast in dreadful weather to do so. We couldn't even have a cup of tea/coffee whilst in our room, as there were no drink making facilities,there was a mini bar, but no means of making or obtaining a hot drink. Wouldn't take much to provide each room with a kettle!!!! In general, its a lovely hotel, but would not stay there again in winter because of the lack (of promised) facilities.

The staff were incredibly nice and went above and beyond in making our stay comfortable. The room was spacious. The gardens were zen and the hotel is in a great location, near the beach and restaurants. We would definitely recommend this hotel and hated to leave :-).
amazing location to port and centre of the city. The location could NOT have been better. The hotel is a piece of history, clean, comfy and very european. The price could not have been beat and everyone was very friendly!! A great find.
