New to Summer France, stay at Les Restanques du Carré Beauchêne in Sainte Maxime, French Riviera, this summer

Summer France has just added the gorgeous Restanques du Carré Beauchêne in Sainte Maxime, French Riviera, to its exciting portfolio this summer. With its Provençale architecture, panoramic views and peaceful setting, the villas blend beautifully into the spectacular southern landscape.

The spacious villas (sleeping up to eight people) give guests a haven in the French Riviera and are a gateway to the glittering Côte d’Azur, which is renowned for its sweeping Mediterranean coastline of south-eastern France.

Compared to its neighbours, Nice and Cannes, Sainte-Maxime is a relatively small town offering more of a peaceful holiday retreat. The old town, located in the Golfe de Saint-Tropez, has everything guests could possibly need: a sandy beach, picturesque golf course, idyllic marina and a wide range of shops and restaurants.

Ideal for families, groups of friends and couples, Les Restanques du Carré Beauchêne each feature a private garden (with sun loungers) and an inviting outdoor swimming pool. Inside, visitors can chill in the living room, which has stunning views over the Golf de Saint Maxime and a flat-screen television, cook with local produce in the American-style kitchen and sit down for a sociable meal in the welcoming dining room or outside terrace, making the most of the balmy, warm climate. In the evening, settle into one of the sumptuous sofas with a book, challenge friends or family to one of the board games or have a boogie using the Bluetooth speaker.

Summer France will include its premium service in the price for all stays at Les Restanques du Carré Beauchêne; refreshing drinks can be found in the fridge, beds will be made, fluffy towels will be provided, moreish pastries will be delivered on the first morning and a welcome basket with fresh flowers will be waiting. Plus, a mid-week and end-of-week clean will take place, and guests can make full use of the utility area that has a washing machine and dryer.

Leave the villas (if you can) and experience the multiple activities and attractions nearby…

A trip to the French Riviera would not be complete without visiting the coast. Discover the soft, sandy beach, only two kilometres from the villas, and try snorkelling, paddle boarding, water skiing and parasailing. After making the most of the multiple water sports, or switching off on a sun lounger, head into the centre of Sainte-Maxime and walk through the characterful town complete with shops, bars, restaurants and a reflective harbour, full of sleek yachts and fishing boats.

Neighbouring Les Restanques du Carré Beauchêne, the Golf de Saint Maxime is an 18-hole course designed by English golf architect Don Harradine in 1991. Commanding some of the best views of the outstanding bay of Saint-Tropez, keen golfers can tee off on the lush greens amidst the picturesque Var countryside.

Alternatively, active families (and big kids) should try Aqualand Sainte-Maxime, an expansive waterpark, complete with waterslides, swimming pools and a splash area for children.

And guests eager for an adventure can explore the famous Route du Mimosa. Named after the large number of acacias in Bormes-les-Mimosas, such as Clair de Lune, Mirandole and Chenille, the 130 km route, split into eight stages, offers a perfumed, golden getaway.

Each evening, make the most of Les Restanques du Carré Beauchêne, acting as the perfect home-from-home for that special summer holiday.

A week’s stay costs from £141 pp (£1,129 total) for a three-bedroom prestige villa, sleeping eight.

Individual press trips to Les Restanques du Carré Beauchêne (and other Summer France / Ski France properties) are available in return for coverage in a national newspaper, glossy magazine or well-visited website. Please contact for more details.
