The perfect place for a family holiday!
We had a wonderful week at Santé Fe with our family of six adults and four children, ranging in age from two to 11. Mr and Mrs Bothmer believe in catering for children so that their parents can have a relaxing time and consequently they have created a paradise for children. The indoor swimming pool was a hit with everyone. The children loved the fact that they could go into the water regardless of the weather outside. Our four year old loved it the best of all because it helped her to develop water confidence.
They have a wonderful variety of toys to suit all ages in the playroom - dolls, with all the paraphernalia for pretend play, building bricks for construction, dinosaurs and animals, Carson’s lorries etc. Plus for older children, there is table football and a pinball machine. Outside there is a large garden with a climbing frame, trampoline and table tennis. Lots of things to occupy children of all ages.
The house is spacious with a wonderful views across the quaint, medieval village of Le Castellet and down to the sea. The kitchen is brand-new and much better than mine at home.
Our hosts could not have been more accommodating. When they realised we would be arriving after the supermarkets had closed, they asked for a list and bought food for us. When they realised that we were flying out of Marseille late in the evening, they let us use the house until late in the afternoon. They are charming and very kind.
I highly recommend this property to all!
Great place for families.
This is a great villa for families with children, we were a party of 6 adults and 4 children. Outside there is a climing frame with swings and slide, a large trampoline, a table tennis table and lots of sit and ride wheeled toys. For the adults there is a large sunbathing terrace set in pretty gardens, a new Webber b-b-q and a boules pitch. Leading off the terrace, through large glass sliding doors, is the indoor heated swimming pool which was a great hit with all the family.
Inside, the ground floor has 2 twin bedrooms and one bunk room (4 beds) which has an ensuit shower room (but no toilet) There is also a family shower room, with toilet, on this floor which is accessable from the pool. The bunk room also has a play area with masses of toys, much utilised by the 4 children in our party.
Upstairs there are 2 twin bedrooms with ensuits and an additional toilet. There is also a large, recently fitted, kitchen with 2 sinks, 2 ovens and 2 large fridges. It has all the appliances you could need and huge selection of pots and pans etc.
The living diniing room is also on this floor. It has a lovely view of the counrtyside and the medieval village of Le Castellet. Patio doors lead to a terrace which has a long table for 12 with chairs and a beautiful view at sunset.
It is an easy walk to Le Castelett where there are several bars and restaurants (and good ice cream) There is also a nearby (easy walk) vinyard where we went wine tasting.
Further afield we drove to Sanary sur Mer, (15 km) a lovely seaside town which also has things for kids like electric car racing, crazy golf etc. Another day we drove to an adventure park called Le Bois des Lutins (45km) where the kids spent the day on bouncy castles and climing nets in the trees.
The owner is very friendly and a couple of minor problems were fixed almost immediately.
In all a great place for a family holiday.
Amazing Villa! Awesome Stay! Wonderful Couple!
Our Vacation in South of France will always be memorable and a huge part why we enjoyed was the amazing Santa Fe we stayed in. The villa is just fantastic! Perfect for big family like us. It has ample amount of space in and out and an awesome indoor, temperature controlled, swimming pool!!! The kids enjoyed the backyard play area. All five bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. The modern kitchen is well equipped! Wonderful terrace with a nice view and parking for 5 cars!!!! Very organized and well planned villa! The house is just unbelievable!!
The owner, Mr. Klaus von Bothmer and his wife were very helpful, nice, accommodating, wonderful wonderful people! They were always ready to help, and they live just a few blocks away, so just call them and will be there in less than 5 mins!!!
Overall, our family are very pleased by the space, comfort, cleanliness, of the house and tranquility of the surroundings. JUST PERFECT!
By the way, they have another villa called SANTA ANA, just next to their house, few blocks away from SANTA FE, Mr. Klaus was nice enough to tour us around the house the day we were leaving France. And we were blown away!!!! Equally amazing villa!
Merci Mr. & Mrs. Klaus!!!
Superbe maison pour séjours en famille
Séjour fin octobre avec du mauvais temps sauvé par cette maison très confortable où adultes et enfants ont pu trouver leurs aises. Une piscine intérieure chauffée à 30°C a fait le BONHEUR des enfants lorsque la météo nous a confinés à l'intérieur. Nous aurions aimé profiter davantage des extérieurs très prometteurs, mais nous reviendrons ! De plus, propriétaires charmants et très attentionnés.
A conseiller vivement.
Built on a hill with a panoramic view of the Mediterranean Sea, hills, plains, and the medieval village of Le Castellet. Views of the La Ciotat bay, the town of La Cadière, the plain of St. Cyr, and the bay of Bandol. You may visit the famous Calanques de Cassis (20 km). Within a radius of 12 km more than 50 wine-growing estates very near by invite you for wine tasting of Vin de Bandol AOC: the most famous ones are Domaine Ott (3 km) and Domaine Pibarnon (7 km). Golf-players will highly appreciate the Dolce Fregate Provence golf club in Bandol because of its location and its extraordinary views of the Mediterranean Sea.
