The villa is the ideal base for touring the South of France. Located in the heart of the French Riviera, with a commanding view of the ancient hilltop village of St. Paul de Vence, the Mediterranean and the Cap d'Antibes, the villa combines ultra-modern luxury with one of the most breathtaking views on the Riviera. The medieval village of Saint Paul. Quietly dominating the foothills a few miles from the Mediterranean. The jewel of the Nice countryside.

Villa St. Maxime was designed by a renowned British architect, Dominic Michaelis, drawing inspiration from the Maeght Foundation (one of the finest modern art museums in the world - a short walk from the Villa), from the beauty of the Provence countryside, and the style of the French Riviera. The result is a stunning Villa cum Chateau fashioned of native white stone, in dramatic lines - sometimes artful - sometimes a fortress. The interior opens into a glass covered retractable reception/atrium, enhanced by Carrara marble floors, vaulted ceilings and marble columns.

To locate the Villa from the coast - starting from Cagnes sur Mer (west of Nice, east of Cannes) - head inland at the Hippodrome (race track):

Step 1 - Through Cagnes sur Mer take a left at the 1st light (N7) towards St. Paul. Continue straight to the 1st exit marked St. Paul (D2085). Continue through the 1st traffic light, bear to the left lane and take the 2nd left at the red light (just past the Train Station) marked the D336 to St. Paul. Continue to the traffic circle.
Step 2 - At the circle take the 3rd exit from the Circle towards St. Paul.
Step 3 - At the 3rd circle, take the 3rd right (sign to St. Paul) on the D436.
Step 4 - At the next circle take the 1st right to St. Paul on the D536. At the next circle, take the 1st right to St. Paul on the D7. Ascending the hills towards St. Paul, passing some hotels and art galleries on the left, proceed until a sign for the Hotel Hameau is on the left. Watch for the St Paul Villa sign, in blue in the hedge, immediately after the turn for Le Hameau.  And then take the next left marked Mas daoul Pilon (the main road is curving at this point).
