Reviewed 25 May 2013

Villa Marie is a beautiful hotel, situated between the village of St Tropez and the beaches. The views from the terraces and restaurant are wonderful. They serve a lovely breakfast on the patio; and there are other chic lounge areas throughout the property. The rooms are fine, but, if I would report anything negative about Villa Marie, it would be that the walls are very thin, and it can be difficult to get a peaceful night's sleep.

Villa Marie is undoubtedly a very pretty hotel in a beautiful place, away from the bustle of St. Tropez and on a pine wood hillside with stunning south facing views and a nice pool and a small spa. The hotel presents itself as a five star operation and lives up to its rating in most respects. However, when we stayed there it was not running as it should have done. We had a few niggles that were probably mostly down to the fact the hotel was only just opening after the winter closing. On two occasions, our room was not made up. The Internet set up was pretty archaic, requiring a fresh manual log-in every time. The carpet on the first floor passage was quite stained. The pillows were so hard they would have served as safety barriers for a Formula 1 racetrack. It took two days to get somebody to fix our terrace door so it would close properly. It was also the first time I have ever encountered a bath IN the bedroom, not what was expected with a 'Prestige' classification and price tag.

These are all quite small matters but they took the edge off our stay. The nicest staff were the young concierges and waiting staff, all unfailingly polite and friendly. I would not normally write a negative review but they didn't send a satisfaction survey. Perhaps they do not need to being so close to St. Trop!

Villa Marie is a very good hotel near saint tropez, expensive but the quality of services are very good. The food is tasty and the quiet of the pin forest give you a plesant stay. The minus of this hotel are the walls that are very thin and you can hear the other people near by.

My husband and I spent 5 days at this beautiful property while in St Tropez. Although location might be an issue for some (you'll need a car), I found it convenient to be located away from the party St Tropez, allowing excellent sleep.
Love the breakfast served until late in the patio and the chic decor. There was a bathtub close to our bed, which was very sexy. Perfect for couples.
Service is very attentive, but the only thing I'd say there's room for improvement is room service. We ordered a bottle of wine and that request seemed quite an odd one for them (enjoying wine in a balcony in Summer sounded quite common to me!) - they did not have a wine list nor prices in hand, but it was finally arranged.

I adore the concept of Villa Marie--not ridiculously priced like some of the other hotels I have stayed at in the South of France, but still retains a charm and elegance. However all positives were overshadowed by the fact that our cash was stolen out of a carry on bag at check out. The hotel was very embarrassed when we called to say 600 euros were stolen, however they never kept their promise to call us back with an update. having stayed at many luxurious hotels before, this cavalier attitude was a first! The customer service aspect--non existent! Positive things, the fishpond was a big hit with the kids and room service was pretty speedy. The spa is a joke and the ac and cleaning service is so-so at best.

Dear Madam, Dear Sir,

I don’t understand your comments as we have been in contact many times regarding the loss of your money.

As previously explained, we do not accept the fact that the money was taken upon your departure, as the money could have been lost anywhere.

Following your stay with us, I am pleased to hear that you like the atmosphere of Villa Marie; however your negative comments about our team are unusual. We are all working in order to satisfy our guests.

We are really sorry for your dissatisfaction but besides damaging our image, you are accusing our team, and it is not fair to insult them and Villa Marie with your remarks.

Frédéric Pouydebat
General Manager / Villa Marie.

Nice location : you are not in Saint Tropez (4/5 km from downtown) but it is important in order to have a quiet property. If you are tired to visit hotel with modern design, you will be happy and you will appreciate the charm of the decoration (difficult to find mistake....). The rooms are with high quality sleep, the restaurant is a good alternative with Saint Tropez if you want to have romantic dinner. The prices are high but it is the price to spend if you want exceptionnal location with high quality service.

Room Tip: Don't choose the room near the restaurant (and kitchen)

My husband and I chose for our 20th wedding anniversary to spend five days outside of St. Tropez and five in town. Villa Maria was a perfect choice for a romantic and charming hotel that was a close distance to the beach and town but allowed us to feel that we were away from the playgrounds. The whole experience was a pleasure and readied us for the non-stop beach and town phase of our second honey-moon. St. Tropez makes me feel as sexy and playful as I felt when I was first married.
