Much has been said, quite rightly, about the ambiance and genuine hospitality of Joan and John. They both work incredibly hard to ensure that you have a wonderful stay at L'Escalinade, taking even last minute decisions in their stride.
There's nothing better than a morning welcome from Ronnie and sitting down to a delicious breakfast on their sun soaked terrace overlooking the gulf of St Tropez.
You can do as much or as little as you like here from visits to lavender fields and the abundance of provencal markets to relaxing by the pool and enjoying all the atmosphere that this place has to offer.
Why do we keep returning? There's no sitting on the plane worrying if you've made the right choice, because you most certainly have. It is absolute perfection and you are guaranteed a great time.
Thanks, once again, to Joan, John and Ronnie - see you soon x
We stayed here just a week ago with our older daughters. Joan and John were so accommodating. The rooms were quaint and charming. And the views of the city and ocean were spectacular! We really felt incredibly lucky to have found this place. Breakfast by the pool was wonderful every morning! The walk into town was short just a 2 blocks away. We stayed here for 4 days and spent one afternoon/evening just lounging by the pool and taking an occasional dip to cool off.
We loved the pink and gray restaurant on the beach for dinner and wish we would have discovered that place earlier as the beach sand was soft and the seating was comfortable with couch like seating. Overall it was a picture perfect stay at the L'Escalinade and if we are ever back in the area we would stay here again. Joan even shipped my eldest daughters shoes back to us in the states after we forgot them on the balcony.
This beautiful villa is ideally situated for the best holiday ever.
The views are breath-taking and everything is on the doorstep. A short walk to the beach, restaurants, marina, markets and shops.
St Tropez is a short boat ride away and is highly recommended.
Joan and John are thoughtful hosts and made my birthday very special.
Ronnie, the boxer dog, is friendly and welcomes all the guests.
We made some great friends and soaked up the sun. What more could you ask for? We would love to go back.

All the wonderful reviews for Joan, John and Ronnie are thoroughly deserved- charm, excellent hosts, good food and wine in abundance. Come here and you're guaranteed a fabulous time.
But, to keep this review brief, there is really only one question for us and that's why do we keep returning? Simply because- only the best will do!

John and Joan are the perfect hosts and of course Ronnie the boxer dog was a character. Breakfast was served outside near the pool which was lovely. The jams are all homemade by Joan and uses fruit which is grown on the property and local produce is used. 5 minutes walk will take you to the beach , shops and restaurants. We are hoping to return next year as we have stayed in Ste-Maxime on several occasions but this place was the best place ever. John and Joan are the perfect hosts and not forgetting Ronnie. The room had a lovely comfy bed was very clean and had a fridge to keep your drinks nice and cool. Can't wait to return .
