The area & location: Plan de la Tour is close to the chic resort of Sainte Maxime which is very popular with the French, and has an abundance of restaurants to suit every taste and pocket.

It has a marina, beautiful beaches, with boat hire, windsurfing, water skiing, and sailing, along with its own Provencal charm. An excellent location for teenagers, with discos, a water park, Adventure Park, bike and moped hire, and many other activities during the day and evening.
Like all French resorts, it does get busy, but bearable, during peak season. There are regular concerts, fireworks, and other events throughout the summer, which peak around the 15th August, which celebrates the 2nd D-Day landing in the Ste Maxime/St Tropez area
In Summer Saint Tropez is only 10 minutes away on the ferry which leaves every 20 minutes.
The House and Village.: It took us a long time to find this house, so we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do. The house was constructed as a family home, and has high quality fittings throughout, electric shutters and gates. The pool house has to be seen to appreciate the work that went into it, including the hand painted mural!
It is in the beautiful village of Plan De La Tour, just off the D44, a link road between St. Tropez, Grimaud and Sainte Maxime (9k). This makes the property ideal for touring, especially in high season when things can get very busy on the coast road, and its best avoided! In fact the best way to get to St Tropez is by ferry, which runs every 15-20 minutes from St Maxime. From Nice airport to our house is approx 1 hour (95k), and not one traffic light or town along the way!
From leaving the house to the hypermarket in St, Maxime is approx 10 min (7k). Across from the hypermarket is Aqua land a water park open June to early Sept, the main parking area in Saint Maixime is 2k more.
Eating Out & further information.: Plan de la Tour is a self contained village, which boasts 9 restaurants 2 bars & 2 Caves. Its a typical Provencal village with cosy restaurants and terraces to enjoy the Mediterranean way of life – but also has various ‘boulangers’, ‘charcuteries’ and small supermarkets with vegetable and fruit stalls, for your daily shopping. From the villa you can walk, or cycle, (2 bicycles available for guest use) to the village in approx 10 minutes, on a path beside the local vineyards. By car its 1,200 metres.

Why Michael Molloy chose Sainte-Maxime
After viewing 10 maybe more properties, we made our minds up in minutes once we looked out at the garden, pool and view.
What makes this villa unique
We have made it a home from home. It has many modern features, like air conditioning. But the overall feel and atmosphere is uniquely French.
