Before arriving into Saint-Tropez, Natalya and I had grand ideas about taking our little Fiat and driving down the coast to visit Monaco and Cannes, but the furthest we got was to Saint-Maxime for our cousin’s wedding. We just loved everything there was to offer where we were and to be completely honest, after checking into Villa Marie for the last couple of days during our stay, there was just no reason to leave.
We absolutely loved the hotel. It was as though Villa Marie had paused in time and its charm had won us over. We had a beautiful suite overlooking the incredibly lush views of the pine forest and spent our days relaxing by the pool and enjoying lunch under the canopy of grape vines at Dolce Vita.
The staff and service were so wonderful, in fact, one of our fondest memories from the entire trip was when we had to wake up at dawn for our drive back to Nice and they had prepared fresh croissants and the most delicious cappuccinos for us to have before leaving. It just added to our list of reasons for us to return.
