The Village Club Pierre et Vacances Les Restanques in the Gulf of St. Tropez offers various kinds of accommodations.
These accommodations are divided into classic studios/apartments and villas, with a zone reserved for each type of accommodation. The flats are located high up on the hill. There are available in 2-room (for 4/5 people) up to 4-room (for 8 people) versions. These are what you could call the 'basic' accommodation. With a total surface area of between 30 and 62m² (according to the number of rooms), the 2-room apartments include: a bedroom with double bed, a living room with 2 single sofa beds and 1 pullout bed, a bathroom with a toilet and a fully equipped kitchen.
The studios measure 26m² and have a living room with two single sofa beds and 1 pullout bed, a booth with bunk beds, a bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen.
The site has around one hundred villas spread out around a lake with between 3 and 5 rooms for a total surface area of between 44 and 110m². Some of these villas have a balcony, a loggia or a terrace. They are real little houses with all the comforts and amenities: equipped kitchen, toilet and wash basin on the ground floor, toilet in the bathroom on the first floor.
No matter what kind of accommodation you choose, Pierre et Vacances offers three ranges of comfort: Comfort, Select and VIP.
The Comfort range is the basic range. The Select range offers services a grade above the preceding category, that is to say a more modern and refined decor and furnishings. The VIP range is the very best the site has to offer. The VIP range comprises recently renovated accommodation units, higher-end amenities (kettle, toaster, Senseo coffee machine, kitchen equipment), a Hi-Fi system, a wide-screen TV and a DVD player, all set in a calm area or with beautiful views. But all this comes at a price.
Of all the accommodations we have seen, the villas provide the best comfort, and more importantly a privileged location with a view of the lake, surrounded by greenery and the feeling of (almost) being alone in the world in the middle of nowhere.
We must admit, the apartments are less exciting. The Comfort range lacks charm and the access is really quite depressing; it looks like the lanes of a public car park. Despite all of this, the large covered balconies allow guests to take in the view of the village, and if you look past the slightly dated aspect of the sofa bed covers and the decor, they are really quite comfortable.
However, wherever you are staying on the site, you are never more than 7 minutes from the restaurants and the reception.
