You’re the kind of person who prioritises relaxation when planning the perfect getaway, which is why you were drawn to Villa Maya. She promised you sanctuary at the heart of St Tropez’s Route Des Marres along with the gift of complete privacy, and she stays true to her word.
Swinging in a hammock in the soft summer breeze, you think about what drew some of the greatest minds in art and literature to the French Riviera; Fitzgerald, Matisse, Chekhov – they surely all came for the very muse that’s staring you in the face right now. From your view on the balcony, the expansive Mediterranean Sea is a sublime backdrop with you at the focal point, a picture of tranquillity. They probably also came for the golden light and the smell of lavender carried on the wind. Perhaps they just loved an unrivalled glass of Rosé. Either way, these are all luxuries that you have complete access to here, with a few added perks.
Villa Maya wants nothing more than for you to put your feet up. With more outdoor seats than you would possibly need to count, you could walk five steps in any given direction and be met with your next lounging spot. You decide to bypass the sundecks for a more chilled option, beneath the shade of the bamboo-latticed pool house. From here you have an uninterrupted view of what drew you here, the chic retreat before your eyes with her impeccable form standing tall in her private garden. The large glass doors which stretch across the width of the property allow the rays to further illuminate what treasures she beholds. You marvel at the simplistic range of modern white and gold furnishings glimmering under the light.
After a swim in the warm pool you decide to take your relaxation to the next level, with a visit to the steam room. You smugly walk past the gymnasium where some of your group have been working out for a while now in order to burn off the scrumptious meal your Michelin chef prepared for you earlier – a seafood platter which you all devoured in the alfresco dining area. With only an hour before pre-dinner drinks, you mean to make this experience a quick one but end up getting lulled to sleep in the misty heat.
This evening, you have plans to take the short trip to one of the world-famous beach clubs nearby, but secretly you’re wondering if staying at Villa Maya might be better when she has everything you could ever need. However, you decide it’s a good thing to venture out for a while – she’ll seem even more spectacular once you’ve had the chance to miss her a little.

There is something wonderfully comforting and indulgent about having somebody else take control of the kitchen. When that person is a talented chef with hands-on experience in high-end restaurants, you know you’re in for a mouth-watering treat. We handpick our villa partners for their beautiful properties, stand out service and their dedication to gastronomy. Here’s a taste of what you can expect when staying in one of our catered villas:
When you awake from your dreamy sleep you can rest assured that breakfast has been taken care of and awaits you. Freshly squeezed oranges and healthy fruit juices along with a selection of delicious teas and coffee are just the start. Yoghurts, crispy cereals, fresh fruits and a tempting display of fresh breads & delicate pastries complete the table. Your chef will also prepare a daily cooked hot option for you - how do you like your eggs? If creamy porridge with honey or simply toast hits the spot, just ask, it’s on the menu. With breakfast taken care of all you have to do is decide how to spend the day. A trip to a stunning beach or perhaps time relaxing by your own private pool – decisions, decisions! Life can be tough …….

With an emphasis on using specially selected fresh local and seasonal ingredients you will be served a melt-in-the-mouth meal befitting of a Michelin starred restaurant. From sun soaked BBQ’s on the terrace to delicious locally inspired menus, your chef will be in touch with you personally before your arrival to discuss your preferences.

The chef is happy to cater to specific dietary requirements. Just let us know about any special requests regarding dietary requirements such as gluten free options. Maybe you’re celebrating a birthday? A cake bedecked with candles can be arranged or maybe just favourite dishes, nothing is too much trouble, just ask. Maybe you’d like an earlier high tea for the youngest children? We will do our very best to ensure that your wishes are granted.
