- “We would like to thank you for a fantastic fortnight at villa Chenelle. Our stay was tremendous. The food was exceptional- high quality restaurant standard for every sitting. We've stayed in many catered chalets before but the idea of a catered villa was new to us. It exceeded all our expectations.” - Guest Feedback
Sainte-Maxime is a very pleasant town, with a vibrant beach resort, a busy port, daily markets and a few lovely old buildings in the small historic centre. The pedestrian street is lined with bars, restaurants and boutiques- and it comes alive on summer evenings with music and a good mix of tourists and locals. Admittedly, there's not a tremendous amount to see when it comes to history or architecture, but Sainte-Maxime is above all a town to relax in- spending long days at the beach, eating at nice restaurants, wandering around the pretty port or having a cocktail at sunset looking over the Gulf of Saint Tropez.
Sheltered from the winds by hills that rise behind the coast, the popular beach resort of Sainte Maxime sits on the coast between Frejus and Saint Tropez.There are buses connecting Sainte Maxime with Saint Raphael, Saint Tropez and other major towns in the Var. The closest train station is at Saint-Raphael where you can connect with the major rail line that runs along the Riviera to Italy. Those travelling from Nice airport can take the Line 20 bus from the airport and change for Sainte-Maxime at nearby Frejus. You can also take a boat between Saint Maxime and Cannes, or Sainte Maxime and Saint Tropez.
Sainte-Maxime has a good range of restaurants for all budgets, with some standouts. At the gastronomy end of the range, try Michelin-starred Badiane, La Dauphine or La Belle Aurore. Restaurant L'Instant is a big favourite with the locals, Le Comptoir does excellent burgers, and Pizza Manon is your best bet for a yummy, reasonably priced pizza.

This area is good golfing country, and those visiting Sainte-Maxime have several golf courses to choose between. The 18 hole, par 72 course at Golf de Sainte-Maxime has wonderful views across the coast and mountains from above the town and a quite challenging, hilly course. The excellent Golf de Beauvallon is 2 miles out of Sainte-Maxime very close to the sea, offering a moderate to hard 70 par, 18 hole game with stunning views of the Gulf of Saint Tropez. There is also the Golf Club of Saint Tropez a bit further afield at Gassin- a fairly exclusive place with a par 71, 18 hole course set in countryside of hills, forest, vineyards and sea. For more information, see our Golfing Pages.
