We spent a wonderful 5 days here recently. Prior to our arrival I had been communicating with Ann frequently via email and she was incredibly helpful. Our flight arrived in Nice too late for the bus so they organised a cab to pick us up.
The hotel is small but lovely. We stayed 2 nights in Room 5 , which was fine, but the last 3 nights we were able to upgrade to Room 3 with a fantastic view of the old town and the sea and a wonderful balcony. I could see the sea from our bed - it was lovely.
The whole atmosphere at the Villa is so lovely, from the fabulous breakfasts - champagne included - to pre-dinner drinks on the balcony ( all free) and post-dinner drinks (again included) The hosts, John and Ann, are very convivial and charming and it was a pleasure spending time there.
Little touches, like free calls to UK, and US landlines, and the honesty bar where you can help yourself to drinks - make this a very special place.
We didn't have a car so walked to the town which only took 10 minutes - although it was a bit steep and you have to cross the main road - but easily doable. The bus service is very reliable and the bus stop is right outside the hotel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Villa St. Maxime was designed and built as an intimate, luxury Hotel - Villa d'Hotes. The Villa is a short walk from the village of St Paul and also the famous Maeght Foundation, it is in fact the closest hotel in St Paul to the village, with the convenience of not being within the walls for easy access and parking. The Villa is very much a modern work of art itself: it is constructed of albinic Provencal stone sculpted in bold sweeping lines. The Villa enjoys an airy modern feel, while retaining a comfortable and intimate ambience, with great views of the village and the sea. The suites and rooms have luxury appointments, ensuite facilities. A Champagne breakfast, including freshly cooked eggs, and evening aperitifs are included in the room rate. ... more less
