A little piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have visited this beautiful villa. We are a large group of 8 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 children and there was plenty of room for all of us. The pool and outside eating area are particularly beautiful but the whole villa is stunning. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you will need and the air con meant the bedrooms were lovely and cool in the hot nights.

The location is great - 15 minutes walk into Sainte Maxime which has everything you will need and more. From there it is just 15 minutes on a boat to Sainte Tropez. There are some great beaches within walking distance as well. We ended up hardly using the cars at all.

The owners are very easy to deal with. They answer queries quickly and were always happy to help.

Overall I would definitely recommend. We are already thinking about a return trip!

The Perfect Villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Margarido was fabulous. Our family of ten (six adults and four adolescents) enjoyed every minute of our stay. The villa was lovely, spacious and comfortable with a pool and gardens enjoyed by all of us. The location, across the road from the beach and within walking distance to the center of town, was perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed dinning at Villa Margarido with its terrific outdoor dinning area, and enjoyed several local restaurants and cafes. The ideal location made day trips to neighboring areas easy. It was a perfect villa for a very enjoyable family holiday.

Celebrating our 60th birthday, my wife and I decided to take our two daughters and their families to France and rented this fabulous villa. We were 10 persons all together; 6 adults and 4 children from 7 to 11 years old. The villa is spacious and we had more than enough room. The pool was an extra treat that the children simply loved. It is a short walk in either direction to lovely beaches. The kitchen was well equipped for our needs, the villa was clean and the garden was lovely! The outdoor dining area - with view to St.Tropez - was fantastic with seating for all of us. So we enjoyed all our meals and evenings out there - barbequeing several times on the outdoor fire place. All of us had a lovely stay at the villa and we highly recommend a stay here!

Wonderful Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We were a large group of 12 adults and 6 babies. The Villa was perfect for our needs. It was more than big enough and we didn't feel on top of each other. It is well equipped and has stunning views across the bay to St Tropez. There is plenty of storage space in the rooms and they were all big enough to accommodate travel cots. There are beaches within a few minutes’ walk and St Maxime was 20 – 30 minutes’ walk depending on how fast you go. There is a shuttle across to St Tropez every 20 mins and Nice, Marseille and Monaco are all in easy reach for days out. Amanda is very easy to contact and provided good information for us. We would definitely recommend the villa and happily stay there again in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this review. It is so good to know that such a large party with 6 babies were so well accommodated, it must have been fun...At least with various places within the garden and a large villa, there was plenty of shade for the babies. Villa Margarido welcomes you in the future, thank you Steve & Amanda

Wonderful family week away!

  • 5 of 5

I just want to say a big thank you to the owners who helped me organise a birthday surprise week away for the family. They were very easy to deal with.

Now to the main event - wow the villa. Great place with lots of space and fantastic pool! The town is a short distance walk but a very pleasant one in the early evening or morning. I would definitely stay here again and if you are thinking about this villa, stop thinking and just book it. You won't be disappointed!
