This beautiful house in St Maxime exceeded our expectations. Everything in the building of the house is well thought out. The house just flows with rooms beautifully decorated and things like bathrooms, showers and bath tubs intuitively placed all over the house. Although we were only a family of 3, we appreciated all the extra space and loved that whenever any of us needed our own space there was room to spare. This house is located next to many beach clubs and restaurants a short walk away, but we found ourselves opting to stay in at the house now than the beaches and enjoy the wonderful fresh water pool and lounging chairs and outside dining areas. On our first day there, we were also treated to a BBQ that we requested from Mamar to set up your our arrival. The meal was absolutely delicious and such a great way to start our vacation. In the evenings we would sit out on the balcony of the master bedroom and star gaze. Villa Johara was truly our home away from home while visiting South of France and highly recommend staying there. Tips, the house has everything you need for cooking,i.e pots, pan's, dishes, silverware etc.. but no coffee, sugar, salt and pepper kind of stuff. Must bring your own. I'm sure if you asked for basics to be bought in before your arrival they would accommodate. Would like to add that Costas is a first rate owner, always got back to me quickly when I had questions. The house is so beautiful and so relaxing. We are so happy we stayed there.
