“Wonderful!”
Reviewed 13 January 2012

We stayed here a few years ago, travelled from Scotland as a surprise from hubby and then met aunt and uncle as another surprise before we got there so already onto a great start. (our stay was in 2006)

Breakfast was delicious, service was brilliant, views were amazing and location was fantastic!

I would LOVE to go back, I've promised we will oneday.

Couple of downsides is they didn't serve meals or have a coffee/vending machine to stock up on a cold drink even. No tv but we weren't too fussed as wouldn't understand it anyway, the views were enough to look at to be honest!

Room Tip: one looking over towards st paul de vance village (which I think they all do anyway)

We stayed in this lovely property in early October and it was one of the best holidays we've ever had. My wife kept saying it's our second honeymoon. Hotel is very conveniently located between Nice and Antibes. It has a lovely view of the sea and the old town. The house itself is very simple yet nicely decorated - it gives the impression of light and sophisticated space. And the owners - super nice. John is a riot with his drinks events in the evening and his writing - try to get to know him. Ann is very nice and always helpful.
We truly enjoyed the whole experience!

I spent 4 days at Villa St Maxime and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. John and Ann are amazing and help with every need including "happy hour" which sometimes runs into several hours. Francoise is a gem. The morning pastries were so delicious and plentiful, I only once had room left in my tummy for John's famous omelettes. The location is perfect. Very close to museum and the village with great shops etc. I stayed in one of the ocean view rooms with bath tub. Everything was wonderful. Peaceful, beautiful and perfect! I can't say enough and would recommend to family and friends.

Room Tip: I loved my ocean view room with terrace and bath tub.

Villa Maxime is perfect place to stay in St. Paul de Vence. John and Ann have taken special care of all possible needs. The Villa is beautiful, modern, wonderful cook-to-order breakfasts; evening apertifs. Staff members Francoise and Laura provide warm smiles and excellent service during morning breakfasts; and they keep the Villa spotless. We enjoyed the comfortable beds and fresh ironed sheets/pillowcases. Our son and his family first visited in 2010 and recommended the Villa, and so we visited 10 days in 2010. We were excited to return for 10 days in 2011 to celebrate Betty’s 70th birthday. John had champagne ready to toast Betty when she came for breakfast. The large Villa Master Suite is a great accommodation, especially for a special occasion (or anytime). Now we anxiously hope to return in 2012. It is a wonderful place to visit.

Just to repeat the previous reviews really, great service from John and Ann and all the staff, lending us maps for our days out or umbrellas when rain threatened one night and booking up restaurants most nights. Lovely breakfasts, 5min walk to St Paul de Vence with its long list of wonderful restaurants and art shops. Stayed for 6 nights in room Max-3 which faced the pool and the distant Mediterranean.

Drinks on the terrace works a treat to meet up with other guests, many who have been back repeatedly, not surprisingly. Being on the road into St Paul we were originally concerned about possible road noise, but this did not materialise. Fridge in the room was ideal to keep any nibbles cool when we just fancied a light snack at lunch, or to chill some water or white wine etc.

Hope to be back there soon.

Villa St. Maxime was designed and built as an intimate, luxury Hotel - Villa d'Hotes.

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
