The Matisse (formerly De La Poste) couldn't really be more centrally located in the charming yet unhurried Cote d'Azur resort of Sainte-Maxime - less than 100 metres from both the old town and the harbour/beach/pentanque area. It has been symapathetically renovated, and rooms have modern facilities (AirCon, WiFi, Flat screen TV, Fridge). Communal facilities include a bar, terrace and pool.... More

Brilliant welcome, lovely spacious bedroom, decent breakfast - poolside, and right in the heart of bustling Sainte Maxime, just 5 minutes walk from the beach. Highly recommended if you don't want to be driving everywhere.

We couldn't recommend Matisse Hotel enough. My husband and I spent 3 nights here in June. Our first visit to St Maxime. Staff could not do more to help us, and were very friendly and welcoming. The rooms were modern, clean and comfortable with a lovely pool and fantastic location. Would highly recommend.

Just came back from a 7 night stay at the Matisse. The staff was really lovely and service was great. Breakfast buffet was nice with a lot of local French products. The rooms were new and clean, hotel was quiet and I felt relaxed and at home. The pool was just the right size and the beds at the swimming... More

I liked the hotel - not too big, so quite personal. Perfectly located just behind the main road (which runs beside the beach) and around the corner from the narrow streets of the old town. A 2 minute walk from the bus stop (I came in along the coast from Frejus on the local bus.) My room was comfortable with... More

Hotel is very nice. Two blocks away from the beach and restaurants. You can take a ferry to St Tropez. 14 euros round trip. Pool is small but nice. Kind of noisy. There is NO FOOD served from 3 or 4pm... you can only get pre cooked food, and its kind of expensive. Everyone was very welcoming and nice. They... More

We spent four nights here in a room that had a partial view of the bay. Excellent location, very helpful staff, and all around excellent stay. Our 3 year old daughter was along and loved it as well; and the staff were very accommodating. Would most certainly stay here again if we are back in Ste. Maxime.
