Average and not a great location for Family.Posted Jul 28, 2013
Unfortunately I didn't really look at the location when booking the hotel and as we are regular visitors to Ste Maxime expected the Hotel to be close to the town. This isn't so, the Hotel although within the boundaries of the Ste Maxime is actually in La Nartelle. This isn't an issue but expect to drive everywhere unless you want a really LONG walk to the town. The beaches are close but still a good 20 minutes walk. The hotel has no evening Restaurant or Bar so expect to be going out...ok for everyone but the driver if you want to have a drink. The room was basic, with small minibar, but no tea or coffee facilities. good shower and small balcony for sitting or drying any washing or wet gear. Average but as a family we won't stay there again.

Beautiful Provencal StylePosted Aug 1, 2012
Pros: Pool, Architecture, Management
Cons: Need to drive everywhere.
Location: Ste. Maxime beaches a 5 minute drive, town slightly more. St. Tropez an easy day (or half day) trip.
Jas Neuf is a lovely, Provencal style hotel in the hills above Ste. Maxime, across from St. Tropez. Our room had a nice, private patio overlooking the pool. It also had a set of two bunk beds, which would be perfect for a family travelling with kids. (We weren't, but the lower bunk bed's a great place to drop off luggage). The pool is beautiful-heated just enough to cut the chill while still being refreshing on a hot day. I was particularly impressed with the proprietors, who appeared to be a married couple. The wife spoke good English and went out of her way to be helpful about local travel and dining. Her husband, while less proficient in English, seemed to be working hard to keep the place up. The vista from our room over the pool to the gardens and adjoining buildings was a picture-perfect display of what you think of when you say "South of France." Now this is a "suburban" location, so a car is a must. Your first few trips to and from the hotel can be confusing, but, once you get the hang of it (and local signage directing you to the hotel helps), you'll get to and from town or the beaches in under 10 minutes. Speaking of the town and beaches, both are great in Ste. Maxime, though parking in town can be a trial. We took the ferry to St. Tropez, and then a taxi back and forth to a white sand beach (and beach club (Club 55)) nearby, but that can add up to a lot of Euros, especially when you include all day paid parking at the port of Ste. Maxime. Still, I love this hotel!

Pleasant stop at hotel Jas NeufPosted Feb 21, 2012
Pros: Good welcome and general attention of the staff
As a family we appreciated the double bed in the entrance of the room which allowed us to stay at a reasonable price for the night and also the half price breakfast for children (which would otherwise be too expensive at 11 €). The choice at breakfast was standard but the staff was always smiling and happy to provide information or service.

Lovely place, but a bit far outPosted Apr 16, 2007
Very pretty hotel with a homely feel to it. But dont think of going there if you are going to be reliant on public transport. It's way into the suburbs and very far from the beach. But that was not a problem for us, as we had a rental car. Clean, good service, friendly hostess. The only complaint would be the breakfast. For what you get, it really could be included in the room rate. Its an extra unreasonable charge per person for an orange juice, 1 croissant, 2 slices of bread and some jam, all carefully measured out so that each person gets just that. If you want a slice of cheese or similar, you need to pay extra. Terribly disappointing considering the niceness of the hotel. Much more worthwhile to go down into Ste Maxime and get an excellent breakfast for less than half the price! Include the breakfast in the room rate, and I'll go again.
